Half garbage. Got this back in May, and had no issues with it. Installed easily, worked like a champ. However, about a month ago, it started doing this weird thing where the keyboard seems to get "tired" in the afternoons. Mouse still works fine, but keyboard starts missing characters, and responding extremely sluggishly. Really hard to work around with a typing based job. I've thrown the keyboard away and moved back to a wired keyboard. No problems at all. Sad thing is, I didn't really need a new mouse, but I'm using this one anyway, to at least salvage something from my purchase.

This keyboard is perfect! I searched long and hard to find a wireless keyboard that has a number pad as well as a caps and number lock indicator light. I thought it was impossible until I found this one. I didn't realize when I purchased it, but it has the capability of using either Bluetooth or universal pairing. This is great because you can save energy using the Bluetooth or if your device has poor Bluetooth connection, you can use the universal pairing device. It can also switch between up to 3 devices. If you like the Apple wired keyboard, it is very similar in weight and layout but wireless. If this sounds like your kind of keyboard, make sure you select the KM717 model when you purchase. I highly recommend!!!!

Keyboard: The keyboard has a soft feel finish & the keys have a very soft feel with minimal tactile feedback, similar to that on most modern laptops. If you prefer a "clicky" type keyboard, this isn't for you. It uses standard sized keys and is very light, but doesn't feel cheap.

Mouse: Reasonably comfortable to use, but nothing special. As a power saving feature it powers itself off & you have to pick it up and press a button on the bottom by the optical sensor to turn it back on... I really dislike this "feature" but there doesn't appear to be any way to turn it off.

They keyboard & mouse share a small usb unifying receiver, exactly like ones common to Logitech. I believe this entire set is actually manufactured by Logitech for Dell.

I have tried many wireless/bluetooth keyboards and mouse. This is by far the best I have used - no connection drop outs. the keyboard is slightly smaller than I would prefer, but it is responsive and comfortable to use. An area that I wish it has is the caplocks indicator which comes in handy when typing hidden passwords if you use capitalized letters along with lower case one. The low-profile mouse also worked very well. I will give this keyboard/mouse set a five star if it comes with Caps Lock indicator (e.g., mechanical or LED).

Overall it's a good keyboard and mouse set, but it's not without its gripes:

- The keys leave a little to be desired. Some of them, like the backspace and Enter keys, have a "sweet spot" that you must press in order to activate the key. One of the shortcomings of chiclet-style keyboards.
- The mouse gestures are cumbersome. Not sure if this is the fault of Dell or of Windows 8. Pressing an activator key on the side of the mouse and then making another gesture just seems like overkill. Why not just add more programmable buttons to the mouse?
- My unit shipped with dead Duracell batteries. Maybe next time, instead of including batteries in the set, just include a voucher/coupon for free batteries?

That being said, there are some nice features:

- The size of the keyboard is nice. Much shorter and thinner than a typical keyboard, yet it still manages to include all of the buttons of a standard keyboard.
- The chiclet keys are easy on the fingers and knuckles. Great for carpal tunnel sufferers.
- The mouse has a low-profile shape to it and, unlike some wireless mice, still manages to keep the laser in the dead center of the mouse body instead of shifted to the left or right side.
- Everything goes to sleep on its own, so there's no need to turn everything off.

Overall, the pros outweigh the cons, and Dell has another winner here with this keyboard and mouse set.

Worked for three months then stopped working unceremoniously. If you buy this product from Dell you get a one year warranty, but somehow if you buy from ELECTRO SPOT you only get a three month warranty. You'll have difficulty reaching them and getting a response from them, too, before they finally tell you that they are keeping your money and you're just screwed. I would only buy this product directly from Dell in the future. I would never buy anything from Electro Spot again.

A little bulky, loud keys. Mouse doesnt turn off automatically. Will kill batteries. Works good though. No interference problems or mouse lag.

KB & Mouse both work great and response time is negligible, even from 15' away from the receiver. My only concern is that they seem to be pretty flimsily made - I'm pretty sure the KB would snap in half if it were ever be, for example, stepped upon... and the mouse's (magnetic) cover tends to pop off whenever it slides off my desk, but no damage has occurred so far. Have had for 60+ days and am still running both KB & mouse on the batteries that were included in the packaging. Good value for the money, but if you need something sturdy look elsewhere.

Mouse and keypad work great BUT......you have to look very closely to find the Universal receiver (USB) that makes them work. You would think it would be included in the small package where you find the batteries but instead it is attached to the cardboard insert in a small flap on the right side of the box! It is very small and easily overlooked!!!! Dell needs to change their packaging on this. If you accidentally throw the receiver away, you may as well throw both the keyboard and mouse out. I've been told be reliable techy folks that each receiver is specifically programmed to the mouse and keyboard in the package.

Keyboard is awesome. Very good quality, light, and the key response is very nice. Also being able to pair and type with the keyboard via Bluetooth to my iPhone is awesome too. Dont waste your time buying the bundle. Just buy the keyboard itself (WK717). The mouse, although very sleek design, the tracking is mediocre. Because the sensor is located at the front of the mouse instead of the middle. Cursor tends to jump around sometimes. Not smooth.
