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.

Problems

BuckeyB, TigerDirect.com

  • Summary: I've had this keyboard for a few months now and the mouse drives me crazy by its lag time. Sometimes it works great but other times one has to wait for the mouse to catch up. Downloaded all new drivers and still a problem. BTW I'm on a i7-2700K processor so I'm sure that it's keeping up. Changing USB ports doesn't help either. The keyboard works great and has a very nice feel to it. But it's that dog gone mouse ..... very disappointing.

I have used better keyboards and mice.

  • 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

"If it ain't broke, fix it anyway"

antevans, CNET
6 April 2011
  • Pros: Rubberized wrist pad. Pretty good key feel for serious typing. Relatively quiet. Lots of extra keys that do stuff. Relatively good value.
  • Cons: Wireless means more batteries to manage, and lower reliability. Lots of extra keys only do stuff you can already do, but require more bloatware on your PC. The person who invented the ridiculous countersunk function and Esc keys will reincarnate as a hams
