Summary: Wanted to post this in case someone else had this happen--namely, after phasing it in, none of the keys worked on it. Nothing in the instructions mentions this, but, on the Verbatim site, they tell you that there's a sneaky little “Connect Channel” button on the bottom of the keyboard that activates it. After pushing that, it works like a charm. This is a good wireless multimedia keyboard with keys that you can feel (and hear) yourself tapping, and it looks good.
Summary: as soon as i got the thing, the USB itself wiggled a little thought nothing of it, cause my last mouse had the same defect? anyways, i plugged it in and it had its own "mood" on when it wanted to work. playing a game then suddenly BAM! im dead cause the mouse stopped completely. not sure if anyone else has had this issue but i have. maybe ill have to go out and buy a wired mouse now, just to make sure it doesn't magically lose connection.
Summary: I bought this mouse to replace my beloved Microsoft optical mouse as the left click button had worn out. I wasn't in love with the Verbatim mouse when it first arrived, and after using it for a few months, I've reverted back to the Microsoft mouse and just deal with having to click 2 or 3 times. Pros: Love the blue color. The overall ergonomic design of it is comfortable, and it works as one would expect a mouse . . . most of the time. See below for details.
Summary: I have limited desk space and prefer a compact keyboard. This one fits the bill and works perfectly, no delays and the keys are well-spaced. It's nice to also have the wireless mouse and the two devices together use just one USB port. There is an on/off switch on the mouse, none on the keyboard. The keyboard has no led indicators for caps lock, num lock or scroll lock, I suppose to save battery life.
Verbatim 97472 mini wirelss keyboard and mouse work BUT...

Summary: it has 3 problems (many of them have been discussed by others earlier): 1) the numlock key is "on" by default. If you try to type a password at boot time, it will provide an incorrect input. You will never be able to login! You can turn-off numlock in your motherboard or you can press the blue color function and numlock key before typing the password, 2) the slope or angulation of the keyboard is too flat.
Summary: I have limited desk space and need my keyboard to be readily accessible, so this is the perfect solution. The price was just an added bonus. No problem with set up and both the mouse and keyboard have performed flawlessly.
