does it work with linux Mar 19, 2014
Salik, this combo will work with Linux. I have used it on Ubuntu fine. I am not sure if there is compatible software for programming the keys though, as I have not looked. It will work though, it uses the standard USB HID Keyboard and Mouse Drivers which work on almost all operating systems. The software (Logitech SetPoint) is the only thing that is not portable to all OS's but you may be able to find it for Linux. Try looking at this, it should work, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HIDPoint.
The distance between the TV and my sofa from where I want to use the key board / mouse is about 15 ft. Will this work from 15 ft away ? Mar 4, 2013
I have just now tested the keyboard and mouse at a measured 21 feet away from the front of my computer (the receiver is plugged into a USB port on the back of the computer) and both functioned correctly. I also checked performance on a book shelf 20 feet away with the keyboard and mouse at 90 degrees from the computer and out of line of site where the signal would have to also pass through ¾ inch of wood and neither functioned. Do note that all such RF (Radio Frequency) devices loose signal over distance. Hope this helped and enjoy you're your new keyboard and mouse.
I have a Samsung smart TV and will this be compatable? I take it that there is a receiver that you plug into the usb port and the TV will pick it up? Feb 19, 2014
Yes it will work with a Samsung Smart TV. In fact I have Samsung Smart TV and it works perfectly. You use the same unifying USB transmitter that you would use on the computer. Just plug it into the USB port on the TV and it recognizes the USB transmitter automatically.
Does MK520 have a lag time between typing and letters appearing on the screen and/or lag in cursor movement when the mouse is used? Jul 7, 2014
I have not experienced that. I have seen that in the past with older PCs/laptops where the system was so bogged down that typing and mouse movements were delayed. I'm typing with it now and everything is "live" and in synch.
Is this bluetooth or is it proprietary? My laptop already has a "unifying" receiver, called bluetooth. I don't need another. Mar 9, 2013
It's not Bluetooth. It's 2.4 Ghz wireless using the unifying receiver.
Sorry if this sounds like a stupid question, but does this require a wifi connection? Got it for my mom and she doesn't have wifi. Thanks! Dec 18, 2013

I already have a Logitech Combo S510 and want to know if I can run the Logitech Combo Mk520 at the same time in the same room, on a different computer without the computers interfering with one another Jan 5, 2014
I read that you can even connect up to five combos to the same reciever. So, it won't be a problem to have up to 5 different combos in the same room, working in different channels.
