Good beginner combo
14 July 2011
Summary: Its ok for beginners that need a cheap priced wireless mouse and keyboard. I need a better one to reach across my living room. but my laptop is hooked up to my 42" LED. otherwise for the price its a good combo!
Summary: I like the product so far...only problem no light feature to let you know that Caps lock is on. Also no instructions for the buttons @ top of keyboard Some are easy to figure out others not so much.
Summary: Wanted a cheap wireless mouse and keyboard for use in the living room for a media center pc - this fit the bill. Problem: the receiver SUCKS. If it's not angled at precisely the right spot, the mouse and keyboard can't communicate with it, and they simply don't work. From three feet away. Yes. This would be fine in an office setting, but I wanted to use these on the couch (maybe 4 or 5 feet away) for internet browsing.
Summary: I brought this keyboard, and when I got home, it didn't work! The mouse works perfectly, but the keyboard did not power up. I put three brand new sets of batteries but there was no problem with the batteries it was the keyboard. I returned it and got another, and guess what? Same problem... SO IF YOU WANT TO WASTE YOU TIME GOING BACK AND FORTH BUY THIS KEYBOARD.
Summary: I use this on my living room desktop which connect to Sony 46" LCD Z series HD TV I got from BandH. Initial install of the mouse was fine. After I move back about 1.5 ft the mouse signal starts to breaking up. Need double or triple click to get the window close. Mouse moved and the cursor stays. Once I move a bit away from the screen the keyboard lost the signal. The distance just like I am having a wire keyboard and mouse.
Summary: I was seraching around for a wireless keyboard mouse for my home desk top. I dont use it very often so I didn't want to spend big. The average price I found was around $75. I found this one and jumped at the $25. I use my computer a lot more now because the keyboard is great. Its really quiet and the mouse works well. I dont like how big the mouse is but I can live with it. Great price for a quality product. Its easy to setup (all you do is plug it in).
Summary: I didn't care for the keyboard. I am a transcriptionist for a living and a lot of the keystrokes weren't registering, so I would have to go back and either throw in the missing letters or be slowed down by an extremely long spell check to have the errors fixed later. I ended up returning it after giving it a day of use. Might be better for people who are casual computer users if speed and accuracy is less important.
