Summary: The keyboard isn't bad for just a basic keyboard.
Pros: Standard keyboard layout and size with some extras. Decent battery life. Mouse has a decent feel and slides smoothly.
Cons: Scroll wheel is too small and touchy. I draft on a computer all day and needed something with better support for my hand, but I was unable to get used to the scroll wheel. I even used it for a few months to try and get the feel for it. But overall the wheel is just too small. The function keys ar...
Pros: Fairly comfortable to use, no real setup required.
Cons: I'm having an issue with the keyboard and mouse not being able to wake up my computer from sleep. I've downloaded the latest drivers for these devices and the Microsoft Keyboard and Mouse center, I've changed all the power settings and device settings to ensure they are configured to wake up the ...
Summary: great keyboard! nothing specal about the mouse. it works. bought a different mouse so i dont use it that offten except when im training.
Pros: has a little curve to the rows. very confy to use. this should be the standard keyboard everywhere. just wish it lasted more than a month.
Cons: Broke after 28 days. will not give me a power light when you put in the batt. or a light at all just stoped working. i was in the middle of a sentence and boom nothing. mouse still works just fine.
Cons: lasted less than 2 years!! Started producing weird results a few months ag0 (turn off the pc and watch it restart within 1-2 minutes-------repeatedly!! (And, NO, there is no other wireless unit within range of this). Now, a single keystroke is liable to produce any/all/random/multiple results on ...
Summary: The keyboard is satisfactory, but sometimes seems not to pick up the signal quickly and so, will run very slowly - not sure why. There is no light or anything to tell you that the capital lock is on when it is and so, one has to keep track of that all the time.
Summary: I would've probably rated it 2 and 1/2 eggs if that was a choice...
Pros: I like the feel of the keyboard, also like the feel of the mouse. Decent pricing as well. It's also nice that the wireless receiver is essentially like a usb drive and not a large device like older wireless keyboard/mouse combos.
Cons: The range of the keyboard is terrible it didn't work plugged in under my desk.... Sometimes randomly the mouse will stop working correctly and I have to lift it off the mouse pad and move it around and then it starts working again. This doesn't happen very often but it's something to be aware of.
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
