Shift button doesn't work right

Barbara, Office Depot
11 April 2013
  • Excerpt: Don't get this. The shift button doesn't work well and when it does, it capitalizes the next letter also even though you're not pressing it any more. I've returned mine.
  • Cons: Difficult to Use

Works great, needs Caps Lock indicator

Coffee Guy, Staples
4 April 2013
  • Excerpt: Price was very attractive but obviously for a reason. I need a very basic keyboard and mouse. This one works great but the absence of indicator lights for the Caps Lock and Num Lock are a big nuisance.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast Response, Highly Compatible
  • Cons: No Caps Lock Indicator

Good keyboard, stink-o mouse

Editor-Jim, Staples
15 November 2012
  • Excerpt: It's quite difficult—and potentially misleading—to attempt to review two significant components when the survey treats it all as a single product. The fact is that the keyboard has a number of feartures that would be better appreciated by a gamer or most home-based users, but is, nonetheless, a very responsive keyboard with good feedback. I'm not a touch typist, and have no use for the multi-dimensional keybards that seem to be popular.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up

I have used better keyboards and mice.

loeffmb, Staples
6 March 2012
  • Excerpt: The keyboard has a mushy feel. The mouse clicks are noisy. I have used better mice and keyboards, but for casual use this system will do. Next time I'll go back to Logitech's product line. The main reason I purchased this set was for the 5-button mouse.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up
  • Cons: Noisy

Good Wireless Choice

Smolder, Staples
5 April 2011
  • Excerpt: Bought this when Staples had the 20 off 30 coupon deal so I paid [$] for the keyboard and mouse. This combination is worth that price. The problem I have is with the extra buttons and their placement. I end up pressing both the left and right secondaries at the same time most of the time but that is my only real complaint at this time. Other than that it was a good deal.
  • Pros: Easy Connectivity, Fast Connection

Could be better

PCFixr, Staples
16 March 2011
  • Excerpt: You will need one front USB port to put the dongle in - the keyboard & mouse won't work well if you put the dongle in a rear USB port.
  • Pros: Easy Connectivity

No Lights to show cap lock is on

paulbyr, Staples
9 March 2011
  • Excerpt: It's ok as a keyboard except for the missing lights! I really consider that a flaw. When logging on to some things, there is no user name blank on the same screen as password blank. Therefore, there is no way to check if the password failure to log in is due to caps lock or my misspelling.
  • Pros: Fast Connection
  • Cons: Poorly Designed
