This keyboard/mouse combo has been very good so far.
David Hunt
Do yourself a favor and buy a better set, or at least try this one out if you think you're okay with it.
spumn
After I get 5-6 feet away from the receiver, the keyboard and mouse don't work.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I've had two wireless keyboard/mouse combos in the past: one by Logitech and another by Microsoft. The Microsoft one I used to have was the Microsoft Office Wireless keyboard, which had phenomenal feel, fit, and finish. That one died before its time--all it took was a splash of coffee into it, and some of the keys shorted out perminantly. Thus, I was in the market for a replacement. The advertised spill-resistant keys and the simple, low-profile design, and the overall small(ish) size of the set attracted me to this product.

This keyboard wins points for me by having a small footprint, so it doesn't take too much room on my desk. I type all day, and my hands creep up, so I want a keyboard that doesn't require me to move my fingers up and down too much, and one that I can type accurately on. This model has a low action, and its keys are soft, springy, and pretty quiet. It feels a little mushy, especially compared to my MacBook's keyboard, but it is comfortable and accurate.

The keys gently slope down, so that the spacebar and lower arrow are tapered toward the bottom of the keyboard. This seems to be a trend in new keyboards. I don't like it that much, because it encourages your fingers to slip off the "chording keys" (ctrl, alt, super). My fingers don't slip off the control key as I thought they would, so I do not consider the key sloping a problem.

For a wireless keyboard, it is extremely important that the receiver pick up every keystroke I make. I've had older models that wouldn't pick up certain letters or key combinations. Happily, this keyboard suffers from none of those problems--at least at the 3 foot range from the receiver.

The mouse is very pedestrian. It has a hard, plastic shell, which feels pretty cheap.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Prior to getting this, I have been using a Dell provided Bluetooth keyboard and mouse, made by Logitech I believe.

Which means I'm probably a little spoiled for wireless products. The only fault was that the battery life was a bit less than I would have preferred. Indeed, I was also intrigued by quiet typing and water resistance claims. So, I took the leap and got this Microsoft set.

First the bad. The mouse is worthless. Really is. I've gotten used to the side buttons and other features of my present mouse. This mouse has the two buttons and a scroll wheel. The two buttons work okay, but the wheel makes for entirely random scrolling. It does not keep a steady speed, has no relation to the mouse setting in windows, and the average speed of scrolling is immensely slow, only a couple of lines.

Add this to the fact that affects both mouse and keyboard. The wireless connection is rather disappointing.

This set comes with a receiver that plugs into a usb port. The receiver is needlessly designed to look like an interesting addon. It is about the size of two mouses put together, with green lights on top that light up when connected. I'm a bit bothered by all the little lights computers seem to insist on and this just makes for more bother. If you could hide it, that might be okay, but the signal isn't strong enough. I have it right under my monitor and still get popups saying it has lost connection. It was really bad with the mouse, but still occasionally lapses with the keyboard, that is a foot away.

Any obstruction causes more problems. A real hassle. And adds to the general imprecision.

The keyboard itself is nice. The key noise really is significantly quieter.

KEYBOARD:

This is the cheapest wireless mouse/keyboard offered at my local Best Buy. I thought I was taking a risk, but the keyboard is great. If you want super fancy, spend $100 on the keyboard that controls your home media station perfectly. Otherwise, get this one.

PROS
The keys are shaped to finger pads (a MUST for a comfortable keyboard)
The keys depress easily.

CON
The function keys (F1, F2, etc) are printed in blue ink above symbols on the actual keys. I don't like it, but this is minor.

MOUSE:

I thought the mouse sucked, but you can make it a good mouse, despite being a bit bulky, with just three basic buttons: left/right/middle + scrolling.
Out of the box, the scroll wheel is just ridiculous. Choppy, clicky, bad. If you are willing to be a little creative and void the warranty, there is an easy fix:

1)take the batteries out.
2)undue the little screw that is revealed.
3)take the components apart. The circuit board, still attached to the base, should pretty much fall out. This is the piece that you want.
4)The wheel and its casing is clipped into the circuit board. Carefully un-clip it.
5)Now, carefully un-clip the wheel frame its little plastic casing.
6)You will see that the inside of the wheel contains little ridges, which rub against a small prong on the "wheel casing" in order to create the clicking of the mouse. Cut the prong off for 100% smooth scrolling. Better yet, carefully use a sharp knife to shave down the little plastic bump on the prong itself. I shaved it down about 90%.
7)Reassemble the mouse. It should now work smoothly. Smooth scrolling action on the wheel!
