I consider this a BASIC or starter wireless keyboard and mouse, and I am reviewing it IN THAT CONTEXT (even though there are a couple of Logitech wireless combos that are below this one). In that regard, it is quite good.
Right from the outset I was very impressed with it's no-hassle plug and play aspect. I literally removed it from the box (batteries came already installed), plugged the tiny nano-receiver into a USB port on the old laptop that I happened to have handy at the time (a 7 year old machine running Windows Vista) and both the keyboard and mouse were recognized and responsive in under 30 seconds. From box to working in a minute or two. That is probably record time for any computer accessory that I've ever installed.
➤'TIP: While this is plug-and-play and works perfectly without installing any drivers or software, you can get some added functionality if you install Logitech's Setpoint software. I have provided the link for it on the bottom of this review.
'➤IMPORTANT NOTE: Many people comment that the mouse is small. This is partially an ILLUSION due to the SHAPE of the mouse, which is a bit different from others. If you see my comparison photos, you will see that it is not much smaller than other mice.
I used two standard size mice and one very small travel mouse for comparison. Some people have also commented on the light weight of the mouse. This is actually true as it is in fact relatively light:
Here are my weight comparisons (without/with batteries):
Included Mouse (M275)-63g/86g VX Revolution (M-RBU126)- 83g/110g Marathon (M705)-87g/135g
VX Nano (M-RC134)-73/95g
FIRST IMPRESSION (Overall): Both the keyboard and the mouse are fairly light. There is protective plastic on the keyboard which once removed reveals an attractive glossy surface around the key portion of it. The palm rest has a flat rather than glossy finish and has small indentations which give it some very subtle texture. The mouse has a very narrow wraparound glossy collar (also covered with protective plastic). The sides (indentation for thumb and opposite side) have the same flat sheen and textured design as on the keyboard's palm-rest. The result is a sort of two-toned black on black look. Aesthetically, the mouse and keyboard co-ordinate very well.
MOUSE: This is quite obviously a right-handed mouse. Some might consider the mouse to be on the SMALLER side. This is really a MATTER OF PREFERENCE and as I already noted, this is largely an illusion. I have used both larger and smaller mice and sometimes it is just a matter of what you are accustomed to. I usually prefer the smaller mice because they seem easier to maneuver around with subtle finger movements. It has an overall ergonomic shape that feels pretty comfortable and natural in my own medium-sized hand. I can understand those with bigger hands preferring something a little more substantial. This is a great mouse to use with a laptop (or as a dual-use travel/stationary mouse), especially since it works with the nano receiver and has the small look.
This is a no-frills mouse. It has the basic left and right click button and wheel. It does not have any extra buttons that you find on some other mice that are usually programmed to move forwards or backwards through web pages, zoom, etc. The wheel does have a push button. When depressed, it puts the mouse into a 4-way scroll mode, that is you can scroll in four directions around a page by moving the mouse as you would normally move the cursor. Depress again to return to cursor control. It is made of a rubber-like material which gives it a nice feel.
The mouse seems responsive and I have not had any issues with losing connectivity so far.
KEYBOARD: Normal full-sized keyboard. There is an on/off switch and an LED Caps Lock indicator. The "Function" and "Control" keys might be a little larger than on other keyboards (especially the Function key) and it seems like the space bar was made a little smaller to accommodate this. I have not found it to be a problem for me, but felt I should note it any way. There are the typical flip-out feet to set the keyboard on an angle. The palm-rest is angled nicely and feels a comfortable size, not too obtrusive nor too diminutive. The keys feel soft when pressed and are fairly quiet. Logitech claims this to be a spill-resistant design. I have not tested this out yet, but if you knew me, you'd know that I will be able to report on this feature fairly soon.
There is a full range of function keys across the top with default shortcut/media keys displayed as icons (Home, Mail, Search, Calculator, Media Player, Previous, Play/Pause, Next, Mute, Decrease Volume, Increase Volume). You need to download the Setpoint software from Logitech's website for these to work properly and the way that you want them to.
BATTERY LIFE: Logitech claims that this combo has "Advanced energy-efficient design" which should yield a very generous battery life of 3 years for the keyboard and 18 months for the mouse. Of course there is no way to prove or disprove this just yet.
IN CONCLUSION: I will say again that this is good basic or starter combo. If you are in the market for such for yourself or someone else, I don't think that you can go wrong with this. The main point should be making sure that the user will be comfortable with a smaller rather than more substantial mouse (at the risk of sounding sexist I will go out on a limb and say that this mouse is probably perfectly suited for many female users). If it is for someone who is not a gamer/cutting edge/latest gadget type of a person who just needs the best of the basics without a lot of extras, than this might just be perfect.
It is also a good choice if you need something fairly portable or for occasional use with a laptop.

In addition, there's an odd quirk with the keyboard as well. When typing quickly, the "Enter" key is sometimes registered slower than the other keys I press. Doesn't happen all the time, but often enough that I can notice it.
Minimal extraneous packing materials, Duracell alkaline batteries preinstalled in both devices. Plug in the USB wireless receiver, pull the plastic insulator tabs, and you're good to go. Clearly the smart folks at Logitech have put some thought into the unboxing experience.
I didn't have particularly high expectation for this product, but once I started using it, some things start to stand out. Here's my shortlist:
• "Invisible" optic sensor in mouse. It's increasingly difficult to get computer hardware peripherals with good features (i.e. for enthusiasts) that aren't covered in colored LEDs. So while light for mouse sensor is a functional component, it's nice Logitech went with an implementation that is not visible.
• 3-button design. If you don't use the extra, non-standard buttons you find on many third party mice, you'll like this. Extra buttons are minimally unnecessary, and in the worst case, make you do things you didn't want to do by accident.
• No wires. Certainly helps keep the desk tidy, and the setup is really as seamless as plugging in the wired counterparts. However, it's a bit unnerving to depend on encryption to secure the keyboard input and the hassle of battery maintenance is yet to be known.
• Cap-lock indicator. I'm just putting this in there because there seems to be confusion: the keyboard does have an indicator light for caps lock, located above the numeric keypad.
• Mouse is tiny! I'm used to the size and shape of my previous favorite mouse, Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer 3.0. When that finally broke, I replaced it with a similarly shaped Gigabyte M6800. Unfortunately, that piece of junk didn't take long to break too, prompting my search for a new mouse. Others have mentioned this mouse is small; I feel like I need to clutch the mouse with just my fingertips since resting my hand on it would hide the entire thing in my palm. Be warned, large handed or long fingered humans! I'm including a photo of the mouse with the M6800 and and Lenovo OEM mouse for comparison.
• No unifying receiver. I don't own other Logitech wireless products, but I can see the appeal of having a universal receiver that you can match up with other peripherals as you get or replace parts in the future.
• Fn-key row. UGH! What industrial designer thought it was a good idea to remove function key group spaces. I use those keys very often, and as a touch typist, I rely on the spacing find the right key to press. Worse yet, key positions and widths are changed as well as a result of this design, so you can't even blindly peck where the key normally should be. Oddly enough, Logitech has keyboards which are like this and others which maintain the standard, 4-group Fn keys. You can see the wonky key placements in the comparison image to a standard IBM keyboard.
In conclusion, it works so I can't complain too much. If you are particular about the tactile feel of the buttons or have specific ergonomic needs, you won't be satisfied with this. However, it's a nice upgrade for most OEM keyboard/mice for the wireless and a steal at $20.
