Excerpt: The microsoft wireless keyboard and mouse are so liberating. I am able to do work on my laptop at home without having to be sitting right in front of it!! It also works great with Windows 8.1! It just recognizes it and off to work we go. Truly plug-n-play! The battery life is very good. I had another wireless mouse that needed the battery changed every month. I also like the quick access buttons on the keyboard. Nice touch with the built-in wrist rest.
Pros: Comfortable Design, Easy To Set Up, Fast Response, Highly Compatible, Long Range, Quiet
Excerpt: Complements my PC which already has Microsoft 3000 Wired Keyboard. Depending on my requirement, I can easily transition from wired to wireless keyboard and mouse without having to find the function keys and shortcuts on my wireless keyboard. With the unified USB receiver the new setup freed an additional USB port on my PC. I would have liked it even more if the USB receiver were the nano receiver type.
Pros: Comfortable Design, Easy To Set Up, Fast Response, Highly Compatible, Quiet
Excerpt: Would like a little heavier weight keyboard but I am probably the exception. Most people like light and portable. Would also prefer taller heavier keys like old wired microsoft I used for years. But getting used to this one. Love the Microsoft feature of CTRL shortcuts being printed on keys for quick reference. I have not found that feature on any other brand and only on a few Microsoft keyboards. No noticable lag time in keyboard or mouse. Two users happy with purchase.
Pros: Comfortable Design, Durable, Easy To Set Up, Fast Response, Highly Compatible, Long Range, Quiet
Excerpt: I have 2 of these Mouse & keyboards. So far I haven't had any problems with either one. I have been using the 1st one for over a year now. The keys are easy to read & have the shortcut keys labeled on the front side which is great. The labeling for the "F" keys are a little hard to read. They are in small blue print The mouse is a little heavy but fits my hand very comfortably.
Summary: Good price but this is the second one I've bought and the mouse is just as quirky as as the first, quite a lag. Also the keyboard didn't last very long before keys quit functioning. I'd recommend spending a bit more and get a system thats works like it should.
Excerpt: Really like the feel and function of this keyboard and mouse combo, but was a little disappointed that the wrist pad shows signs of wear after only a month. The board itself, and mouse show no signs of wear and function great. Just the wrist support that seems deficient...but doesn't affect the functionality at all. Great buy if you can get it on sale!
