Works great, but I prefer cordless....

Excerpt: This mouse works perfectly, but I just prefer a cordless one. I have enough items on my desk as it is, and it tends to get caught up on things. As far as usability, it does what it's intended to do.
Slim & Lightweight but be wary of the variable specifications of Bluetooth

Summary: I bought this a couple of years ago and worked very well with an older computer I was using at the time, the split design is perfect for use with a graphics tablet, where a conventional keyboard is just too bulky and gets in the way.
Summary: I needed some extra desk space and this looked like the perfect solution. This is an very good keyboard, especially in such a compact size. It is excellent quality (although the number keypad does not sit flat) and positive and quiet whilst typing.
Summary: This keyboard is nice-looking, ergonomic and space saving; however, it does seem to go through a set of batteries every week; as a result, it keeps losing connection - and, being blue-tooth it won't activate till the system has fully booted leaving you with the problem of never being able to access...
Summary: All well and good if you are going to use this within 3 feet of the transmitter. If further away (for Home Theater use for example) it simply refuses to work and brings up a software wizard that tells you to put the mouse and keyboard within 3 foot of the transmitter. Oh well........
Summary: I've had this set for about a week. It looks very attractive. However, use the keyboard for a lot of typing and it gets uncomfortable. The wrist support is attractive, but the problem is the sheer height of the keyboard and support; the buttons are too high for my liking.
Summary: For the last 3 years I've used a previous Microsoft Desktop consisting of an "Office Keyboard 1.0" and the old "Wireless Intellimouse Explorer 1.0". The keyboard was excellent. The mouse was good although rather too heavy to use all day.
Summary: The mouse in this package is 100%. And I'm fussy with mice but this one has been built to last. It is comfortable and not at all tacky, in fact its a credit to the builders. I wouldn't be struck on the keyboard mind you. I don't like the idea that every time you hit a key, the whole keyboard shakes.
Summary: Most features of this wireless keyboard/mouse set have been described by previous reviewers. I have only a few comments to make. I received this keyboard a month ago and aaaaaafter testing it and extensively using it I reached the following conclusions: -The size of the keyboard is fine -No problems...
