As somewhat of a keyboard/mouse collector (16 mice and 12 keyboards) due to the "unfortunate" quirk of being left-handed and desiring a comfortable mouse, I've tried quite a few over the years. I bought this set because Microsoft advertise that it's Mac-compatible, which is important seeing as I use Macs primarily.

Previously, I'd been using the standard Apple keyboard (slim aluminum), but wanted a keyboard with a few function keys. I scoped out the Logitech G15, as I had the older flip-LCD version and Logitech now supports Macs with their new G-series Profiler software, but I decided against the G15 because Logitech annoyed me with their Desktop Wave Pro set - which inexplicably is NOT supported by their SetPoint Mac software, even though the original Desktop Wave set IS supported. Grr!

This set from Microsoft is my favorite Microsoft set in years. The keyboard is fairly slim for an MS keyboard, which I like, and the keys are somewhat low-profile, which I also like. It took me an hour or so to get used to typing on it, as it has a bit of a weird contour to it - not quite as weird as the Logitech Wave, but a definite contour.

As mentioned by another reviewer, the keyboard is loud. I don't notice anything particularly loud about the spacebar, but the keyboard is most definitely loud in general. This doesn't bother me, as I tend to like the clack of a keyboard, but I can see how other people might be bothered by it. There's no way I could type on this keyboard stealthily while talking on the phone, for example.

For Mac users, the newest Microsoft IntelliType software is fantastic.

If you just want a wireless combo that does the job, then this is it. But there are some annoyances.

Extra buttons that work without the software:
1. The calculator button above num lock that brings up the calculator. That is, the one you would find in start -> all programs -> accessories -> calculator.
2. E-mail, internet, and music buttons on the top left. I think if I had MSN messenger this would work too, but I can't get it to open Pidgin without the software.
3. Play/pause, previous track, next track, stop.
4. Volume down, volume up, mute.

Extra buttons that don't work without the software:
1. On the very left, my documents button and my pictures button.
2. On the very left, zoom in and zoom out. I think they're equivalent to ctrl + =, and ctrl + -, but they won't work without the software.
3. The 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, keys which are software customizable as well as the star key that brings up the config for the 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 keys.

The F keys may or may not work without the software, I'm too lazy to uninstall and test it.

Things I like about this keyboard/mouse combo:
1. I really like the calculator key above num lock.
2. The keys are kind of halfway between a standard height key and a notebook key.
3. It looks nice on a desk.
4. Wireless range is about 30 feet, but don't expect it to go through 2 walls. No major complaints about connectivity/tracking/etc.

Things I hate about it:
1. The mouse wheel is completely smooth. If I play a first-person shooter, and I want to switch weapons with the mouse wheel, I get no tactile feedback, and what would normally be one click of the wheel translates into me switching from my first weapon to my third weapon.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Ethical note: I once worked for the video division (eyeball cam) of Logitech, however my experience was not with the input device division which made keyboards and mice. I am disclosing this purely because I know alot of Logitech's manufacturing techniques and I may reference my collection of their products in comparison to the Microsoft product. I no longer work for Logitech and do not own stock in the company nor am I holding any board position or any position of power within the company.

Update: This was the first wireless keyboard mouse systems I had a chance to review - since then I've gotten 2 more - 1 was another amazon vine (and I needed it because I had 2 pcs I wanted to use remote keyboards on) - and the other came with my dad's HP pc - it's obviously oem'ed by someone for HP and contrary to the verbatim and microsoft does not use a "fob" design for the receiver but has a 6 foot cord and a hocky-puck shaped receiver with a blue light on top that blinks anytime a RF command comes in from either the keyboard or mouse.

Now having seen, used, and compared side by side 3 different wireless desktops I can honestly say I would give the microsoft it's 5 star rating - for low battery consumption, for long range, and for features integrated into the operating system. 2nd place would go to the verbatim - its not quite the microsoft setup, but it does work well, the mouse battery lasts a long time, but does not have the blue led found on microsoft's which gives it better resolution on almost any surface, even a white piece of plastic like a blank compact disc!. Then in 3rd place comes the HP kit. The 6 foot usb cord and receiver doesn't need to be designed that way and the range is really poor - sometimes only able to get across the table 1-2 feet to the receiver.
