Summary: First of all, I bought this because it was supposed to work for the Kindle Fire. My mistake apparently, because it only works with the Kindle Fire HD, so I gave it to my wife. generally, it is pretty small even for her small hands, but that's the trade-off for portability. I just bought the touch keyboard for the Microsoft Surface (Pro), which is larger but completely flat. I prefer that to this.
Summary: The instructions given with this are very inadequate no explanation of switching normal keystrokes to function keystrokes whish appear in the normal keyboard. I worked out the solution through trial and error. Mfg never explained the problem.
Excerpt: This wireless mouse is great for persons that use thier mouse alot for drawing, etc. The form gives very good support for the hand. My main issue is that the wheel squeeks at times when it scrolls. Outside of that. It's a wonderful mouse to use.
Excerpt: Nice unit and easy to setup however every time it establishes a connection with my macbook pro the computer has to shut down because of an unexplained issue. I have tried re-installing the mouse several times but the same issue arises. I have now installed it on my sisters mac book and it seems to work fine. In short avoid if you have a macbook pro otherwise recommended.
Excerpt: I don't use the mouse and don't plan to do so. It's cheap quality and lacks back/forward buttons. I was looking for something Mac-like that would take up less space on my desk and allow me to align my keyboard properly (B in the center). First impression: When I took this out of the box, I thought 'wow this feels so cheap!' But look at the price...
Summary: Seems to be working fine, it would be helpful if it had some indicator lights. Really, without that you'd need to be a typing expert to figure out whether you have caps lock on or off. Or just a little necessary chart in the system tray blocking out other important info. Sorry if that is a poor review, but let's face it, this keyboard really fits that bill.
Looks cheap; worked out of the box with Crunchbang Linux
13 July 2011
Summary: Mouse looks like cheap plastic and attracts fingerprints. It comes with free Energizer batteries and has a tiny usb receiver. Although it worked right out of the box with Debian-based Crunchbang Linux (no drivers necessary) touch gestures included, I can't stand how cheap it looks and feels. Plus, the lack of seperated buttons makes clicking a little strange-feeling.
Pros: The keyboard is slim and the size is perfect for my very small keyboard tray. I m very happy with this element. Keyboard connects well, and the keys really duplicate those of my laptop (Dell) which make it very easy to get used to,
Cons: The mouse is defective and does not work properly. If you want to return for new, you have to pay about a third of the cost of the unit to do so, and cannot return it separately. Because of the cost and hassle of returning it, I am considering this unit a keyboard ONLY, and will need another mouse with ANOTHER usb connection, which will require me to have a hub. Is it worth it for the keyboard? Almost.
