Worthless

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Pros: Very nice feel; the separate number pad is nice.
  • Cons: Not only does it take 10-30 seconds to "wake up" after the first keypress, but it randomly goes back to sleep - even in the middle of typing a sentence! Then you have to wait for it to wake up again.

  • Pros: Mouse works fine

  • Summary: After a year the mouse finally stopped working. I'm glad because the range and battery life suck. My Logitech notebook mouse has lasted 8 months and is still going on the original batteries. This set has annoyed me off so much, I will not buy Microsoft hardware products again.
  • Pros: Elegant looks, nice wrist support texture, quiet keys
  • Cons: BATTERY LIFE and Wireless Range. Replacing batteries every two months is a pain. Range is 3 to 4 feet from the receiver. Many times the mouse or keyboard, or both will not work on start up or will stop working in the middle of something. Requires rebooting computer. - Very annoying.

  • Pros: Media Shortcut buttons (when they work, sometimes they lock up)
  • Cons: Where do i start? The keystrokes are horrible, the range is even worst! If the receiver isnt within inches, the product refuses to work! Tonight i am typing this review from my laptop because my keyboard mysteriously stopped working, Please DO NOT BUY.

  • Summary: Un giorno, guardando il pc, mi sono reso conto che avevo una ragnatela di fili. Volendoli ridurre ho deciso di comprare la tastiera Wireless. Io non sono molto a favore della Microsoft.
  • Pros: Nessun filo tra i piedi
  • Cons: Non sempre funziona
