Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
There's a lot to like about this wireless setup from logitech, including that it only takes up one USB slot for the receiver. But let's break it down...
From box to functional took less than 3 minutes, and most of that was dealing with the cardboard that held in the batteries and the usb receiver. Once I had those out it was a snap putting the batteries into the keyboard and the mouse, then plugging the receiver into a spare USB port on my computer. They worked within about 10 seconds on my Windows 7 machine. I unplugged my hard-wired keyboard and mouse and haven't looked back.
The keyboard has good response - the keys have a pleasing click and they are soft to the touch. The tabs on the back raise it to 8 degrees which works for my setup. The keyboard has buttons for audio, launching your default web browser, opening your email program, powerdown, and calculator. You don't have to load ANY software for these quick buttons to work. Now I personally don't know why there is a quick button for calculator, but there you have it.
The mouse is small and easy to use. It's not fancy, just your basic mouse with scroll. It's lightweight and can feel a little TOO lightweight if you're used to a more substantial mouse. That is so far the ONLY drawback to the mouse - but since I'm using it at work it's not like I need a gaming mouse. The mouse is responsive, tracks well, and is comfortable in my hand.
Great combo set of products - time will tell if the battery life is as advertised, but I'm a heavy user of the keyboard and mouse so I'm going to be switching to rechargeable batteries as soon as the included ones are done.
Best feature for me: one USB receiver for both devices. I'm always running out of USB ports and this is a huge benefit for me.

I agree with Heath Buckmaster, and I am not getting paid to write this Nathan :-)
