I'm surprised I'm the first reviewer
on July 11, 2013
Maybe this bundle just came out or something. I don't think the keyboard or mouse are any different than their standalone items, so you can probably read up on both of them by searching for reviews for each of the items in this bundle separately. Nonetheless, this is the bundle I bought, so I'm listing my review here.
Both seem like great items after the first day of use. I cannot comment on long-term usefulness, longevity, or durability yet, of course. But I'd recommend this bundle to anyone looking for a cheap and simple setup. The keyboard is a little "clacky" in my opinion - makes a decent amount of noise when typing rapidly - but that's alright for my use since it's just being connected to a desktop in my room, and I don't share a room with anyone else. It might be somewhat annoying late at night if you have a roommate, though, for example.
The mouse's buttons click nice and quietly. I haven't had any problems functionally or mechanically with either device. Again, I'd highly recommend it.
Last thing, not sure if Amazon always ships the same items in the same containers, but it comes in long, narrow box, because the mouse is packaged next to and not on top of or to the top of the keyboard. And this box was placed inside a particularly large shipping box for some reason. Again, not sure if Amazon always uses the same boxes to ship items. I just thought it was odd to see such a large box on my porch for a keyboard and mouse. You might want to take this into account if you live in an area that has high crime where a thief might be more likely to take a bigger box simply because he thinks it might contain a larger, more valuable item inside. Nonetheless, it only weighed 4 lbs, so my whole idea on this my be ridiculous.
Anyways, 5 stars all the way. I'd buy again in the future barring long-term longevity issues that may arise in the future. If they do, hopefully I'll remember to come back here and update this review to reflect those issues.
