Top customer reviews
The mouse is a bit loud, and can be slightly inaccurate (for me, sometimes it seems to act like a hair or something is in the beam, when there isn't). The dongle stores under it, which is great.
The concerns posted though for the odd, flush layout for the keyboard is correct. I am a touch typist, and the keyboard does actually slow me down. As it is a keyboard for my laptop, I don't use it all the time. Going from my normal keyboard to that one is a bit of a learning curve. There should have been a space between the insert and backspace rows. As long as I have a bit of light, I can get used to it, and if it was your only keyboard you would quick enough. The non-standard layout, however, is a star marked off. It seems slightly pointless as there is room on the sides to have added a space. Having every key the exact same height just doesn't seem to be the best planning.
Other star is because the mouse is oddly loud, and slowish. I don't mark that so hard as I am more used to a gaming mouse, but it is there.
Update as of 8/3:
Mouse is basically junk. But the keyboard is still one I use. Quick, quiet, and while the placement took me a long time to learn (especially considering I have an ergonomic at work, a full size at another office, and at my other PC at home..), but I still kind of wish they had better spacing.
And I only had to replace the battery one time in the keyboard in all this time.
I have both this model and the Logitech MK270 keyboard mouse combo. Some differences are that the Logitech keyboard does not have a side border/bezel so it has a smaller perimeter than Microsoft's. Logitech keyboard has an on/off switch but Microsoft's doesn't. Logitech keyboard border texture is the same as the keys (the matte feeling) while Microsoft's border is very smooth and of different texture than the matte keys. The natural angle of Logitech keyboard is flatter than Microsoft's. Therefore with the extended legs, Logitech's keyboard is also still at a lower angle than Microsoft's. Underside of Logitech keyboard is gray while underside of Microsoft keyboard is white. Logitech mouse is smaller and makes your hand shape rounder, while Microsoft mouse is bigger/longer and makes your hand flatter. Both mice and keyboard have satisfying typing sounds and clicks though, so it really depends on how much space you'd like on your desk!
***Update June 2nd 2017***
Almost a year later and I'm still using this keyboard and mouse set almost daily and it's still performing perfectly. Don't hesitate to purchase this wireless combo!
I will try to post a picture of this mouse next to another mouse to show the difference.
