***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!
Is it top of the line? Probably not. Is is good for the average home computer user who's sick of wires all over the place? Absolutely. I would feel very comfortable recommending this or giving it as a gift esp. since it includes name brand batteries. Great value for the price. Kudos!
UPDATE JULY 2012: Still using the batteries that came with this set, though don't use the keyboard much since I use the laptop keyboard. I'd say I've turned the mouse off for about 10% of the time I've owned it so the batteries aren't lasting longer because I'm actively taking steps to conserve the life. It simply doesn't use that much juice to operate. Very, very satisfied and a better buy still as I update this by $4.
UPDATE JANUARY 2013: STILL using the original batteries that came with this set with no signs of the battery dying anytime soon. I still don't use the keyboard that much, but use the mouse daily for at least and hour or so. I can't remember the last time I turned the mouse off. It's still more expensive now then when I purchased it, but it clearly does not chew through batteries (good ones like Duracell anyway). Maybe there are models that are a bit less expensive, but if you're replacing batteries frequently then are you really saving any money?
The first one broke within several months of having it, but I like the slim design, the fact that it uses one nano receiver for both the mouse and keyboard, and i like the button options on the keyboard (volume and calculator specifically). The second one is working just fine.
The trick is to not move this from place to place like I did. The mouse has a holder for the receiver and I used this with the first one to take with me to meeting or to take home, but it must be really sensitive because the what broke was that the receiver couldn't read my mouse and keyboard.
With the second one I bought, I keep the receiver plugged in to my work station and I don't ever move it.
I did not open the box for about 2 months, so when I found out that the keyboard was bad, it already passed 30 days.
I called up Microsoft as the amazon customer service suggested.
The agent from Microsoft told me I have to: 1. mail the keyboard set back to Microsoft at my own expense; 2. wait 4 weeks to get a new one after they received the broken keyboard since this set is currently out of stock.
I only paid about 20 bucks to get this set on amazon. Do I really want to pay the shipping which is about 10 bucks and then wait for another 1 month to get a replacement? If the new one is still bad, I am screwed.
I am not going to do the replacement. This is terrible, although I have to agree that it is my fault that I did not open the box and check it right after I received the item.
So, very important suggestion:
Make sure you check the item as soon as you received it!
