2 out of 5 eggsNice keyboard, mouse is garbage

Pros: The wireless keyboard is a basic keyboard and it works great. I was using an old gateway keyboard for awhile but wanted something a little smaller.

Cons: The biggest problem is the mouse. WOW is it terrible, the range is terrible and it skips A LOT. It is incredibly annoying and makes playing most games a PITA. I wish i didn't have to pay for that garbage but I was hoping it would work better than my 4 year old wireless GE mouse that has a broken wheel, but I guess I will have to continue using it because it actually works great other than than the broken wheel. Also, a few keys are placed in awkward spots compared to my old keyboard and it cramps up my hand if I play something like Skyrim.

Also, no lights are included to show the locks, it instead installs software that puts an ugly little box on the screen, no thanks...

The receiver is also kind of large.

Other Thoughts: Pretty decent wireless keyboard, worthless mouse. Purchased from a local store.

1 out of 5 eggsunreliable

Pros: Attractive, light, quiet.

Cons: Unreliable.

Other Thoughts: Stopped working after two weeks. After factoring in the return shipping for replacement, it wasn't such a good deal anymore.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Thin, hooks up without issues, wireless is working from about 4' away, which is what I needed.

Cons: The f-keys are not grouped, which makes it hard to find which f key you want to hit without looking down. I'm sure this is something I'll get used to, but it's a minor inconvenience.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Nice

Pros: Great keyboard. I'm not a mac fanboy but I certainly like their keyboard after using it at work. If you're looking for a similar keyboard to the mac chiclet keyboard style this is it. Even better than the mac keyboard since it's wireless.

Cons: Mouse could be better but for the price I can't knock this combo in rating.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat keyboard, mouse is lacking...

Pros: Slim, attractive, keyboard, responsive, function keys

This keyboard is fantastic. From day one it operated perfectly for me (Windows 7 x64) without installing any drivers.

Cons: Mouse loses connection with keyboard. No response from tech support as yet. I have followed the instructions to establish a connection, but this has failed... my mouse may have become defective. I am waiting for a response from Verbatim tech support. This keyboard/mouse combo has been great and I don't want to abandon it.

Other Thoughts: If I can get this keyboard/mouse combo working again then I have nothing but kudos to give to Verbatim. The hardware is awesome. It is responsive, ergonomic, and probably better than most US keyboard layouts on laptops and PCs.

3 out of 5 eggsWorks well, but some things need improving

Pros: Has a great touch to the keys, looks nice with the glossy finish, stays connected with no issues. Mouse is fast and trouble free.

Cons: For a touch typist like me, the home keys are a little difficult to find easily (a very tiny little ridge on the F and J keys are the only hint). All the letter and number keys are the same size and shape and at the same height, most keyboards vary the size and angle somewhat so that you know when you're resting your fingers on the home keys. And the F keys are not grouped so I have to do a visual check before clicking one.

Other Thoughts: Overall I do recommend this product, but if they grouped the F keys into groups of 4 and made it easier to find the home keys I'd give it 5 stars. If you are in the habit of looking at what you're clicking you won't have the issues I describe.

4 out of 5 eggsSimple N Sleek

Pros: -I like the apple style keyboard.
-The Mouse is comfy
-Has had it now for 3 months and i must say the batteries that came with the product is still going strong.
-Easy to clean, and i like that it has a simple,sleek design.
Overall i have been very please with this product.

Cons: -I Wish the usb receiver was smaller and had a better link quality at the back of the computer like it does at the front.

Other Thoughts: I accidentally bent the usb connector that allows the keyboard and mouse to work with the pc and it is still going at its best.
The reason for why i gave this product 4 eggs and not 5 is that i wish they had made the usb receiver smaller.
This is my 1st experience with this keyboard and so far as my first keyboard buy on newegg/ever i am rather proud of it.

3 out of 5 eggsVerbatim logo... why?

Pros: Fairly quiet and easy to type on.

Cons: The Verbatim logo only appears in some of the product images, but it is indeed present below the right Alt and Menu keys on the keyboard (and on the mouse, too). This really ruins the sleek piano black look of the keyboard for me.

5 out of 5 eggsvery very nice

Pros: - excellent short keystroke
- will improve your accuracy
- might slow you down a pinch.. tradeoff for accuracy

Cons: none really

Other Thoughts: I have a friend who swears by this Apple style keyboard. It will actually improve your accuracy, however it will slow you down a pinch, at least with me it did. It makes keystrokes much more intentional and I rarely hit an extra key or rarely made mistakes in general.
