Poor range

P. Rowan "..", Amazon

  • 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........

GREAT keyboard.... APPALLING mouse

Chris D, Amazon

  • 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.

The keyboard is too thick!

  • 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.

Shut your mouth and look at my keyboard!

  • Summary: If there's one thing that this keyboard isn't, it's subtle. With other keyboards, the keys press down softly while typing. Here it's the hard 'tap, tap' of plastic hitting on plastic.

the bisness

  • 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.

Good Features, Poor Build Quality

Gadget Man "grahampeace2", Amazon

  • Summary: I've just taken delivery of my Desktop Elite Set and on the whole I'm happy with it. As I expected, the tilt wheel is useful when viewing documents or pages at high magnification. Smooth scrolling with wheel is much better than the ratchet feel of the older intellimouses.

Slim & Lightweight but be wary of the variable specifications of Bluetooth

E. McKnight, Amazon

  • 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.

Pity about the shortcomings of Bluetooth

P. Elsworth "Pete E", Amazon
15 February 2012
  • 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.

doesn't deliver

Karo Son, Amazon
21 May 2011
  • 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...
