5 out of 5 eggsDoes its job

Pros: Plugged it in and it has worked great. I really like that the mouse has the extra 5th button on the right side. This was one of the top features I was looking for in a reasonably priced wireless mouse. Also, having used a previous generation of MS wireless desktop, I was used to the many keyboard function keys that are included.

Cons: I dislike that the function keys are labeled with shortcut icons as opposed to the function numbers. Additionally, there is not a noticeable gap between F4/F5 and F8/F9 that allows you to quickly reference where you are.

Not a big con, but after only 3 months the mouse is already needing new batteries. Was hoping it wouldn't eat through them this fast as I have other wireless mice that last much longer.

Other Thoughts: A lot of people had range issues, but my setup removes that issue. I have the dongle on my desk hooked up to a USB switch so that I can use the mouse and keyboard on different computers with the push of a button. (a KVM without the V) So because of that, the range needed is only about 24" to the rear of the desk.

3 out of 5 eggsGood, but some issues.

Pros: Fairly comfortable to use, no real setup required.

Cons: I'm having an issue with the keyboard and mouse not being able to wake up my computer from sleep. I've downloaded the latest drivers for these devices and the Microsoft Keyboard and Mouse center, I've changed all the power settings and device settings to ensure they are configured to wake up the computer but I've still had no luck. I have a wired keyboard plugged in beside the wireless adapter just for waking the computer up, so I know the USB ports aren't going to sleep.

Not sure what the issue is, but it's kind of annoying.

3 out of 5 eggsNot my best investment??

Pros: wireless, easy install, excellent features, comfortable size

Cons: lasted less than 2 years!! Started producing weird results a few months ag0 (turn off the pc and watch it restart within 1-2 minutes-------repeatedly!! (And, NO, there is no other wireless unit within range of this). Now, a single keystroke is liable to produce any/all/random/multiple results on screen---or nothing at all! Brand new batteries---now just a converstation piece!!

3 out of 5 eggsDecent Keyboard however..

Pros: I like the feel of the keyboard, also like the feel of the mouse. Decent pricing as well. It's also nice that the wireless receiver is essentially like a usb drive and not a large device like older wireless keyboard/mouse combos.

Cons: The range of the keyboard is terrible it didn't work plugged in under my desk....

Sometimes randomly the mouse will stop working correctly and I have to lift it off the mouse pad and move it around and then it starts working again. This doesn't happen very often but it's something to be aware of.

Other Thoughts: I would've probably rated it 2 and 1/2 eggs if that was a choice...

5 out of 5 eggsgood combo

Pros: Bluetrack works on thick carpet or countertop and it is awesome.
Spill proof keyboard.
Nice key feeling and feedback.
Not completely silent (both mouse and keyboard -I mean when you click or press keys) but also not noisy either.
Wireless works well at 30 feet away from PC (clear path)
Batteries last long (I have purchased this model about 2 years ago)
If you have any problems , Microsoft customer service is easy to reach and the support is great (also USA based)

Cons: Not iluminated

Other Thoughts: Great wireless mouse + WIRELESS keyboard.

5 out of 5 eggsGood KB/Mouse combo

Pros: 1 USB dongle for both components, reaches to 23ft before it cuts out. I used a USB 2.0 port which got me to 28ft before cutting out. Might have something to do with interference with other electronics. Keyboard shortcuts are useful to have.

Cons: Mouse wheel isn't "click" or "notch" type, it's the smooth scrolling. A little bit annoying but I kind of seems a lot more accurate than my old mouse

5 out of 5 eggsUSB 3.0 is the culprit for distance problems

Pros: Range
Battery life
Mouse works great on pretty much any surface

Cons: The mouse has no back/forward buttons.

Other Thoughts: I've noticed a lot of reviews complaining about the short range this keyboard has. It actually advertises a 30 feet range and I've seen it live up to that. I personally own two of these and work in the IT department of a school where we have at least a dozen. What we discovered was that USB 3.0 interferes with 2.4GHz wireless devices. When plugged into a USB 3.0 port the range is about 2 or 3 feet, but when in a 2.0 port the range is easily the 30 feet advertised (without anything in between). Even a 3.0 port that's next to a 2.0 port can cause the interference so it's something to keep in mind.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Keyboard and Mouse

Pros: Quiet keyboard, nice big mouse, lots of customizable features! And a fantastic price!

Cons: The wireless range can be sketchy at times.

Other Thoughts: I used a USB extension cable to mount the receiver a little closer to the keyboard and mouse. Has been working fine for almost a year! Don't know why people whine about it so much.
