This review is from: Rosewill RKM-1000RF (RIKB-11005) 2.4 GHz Wireless Slim Keyboard and Mouse Combo
Pros: Inexpensive. Quality is better than I expected for the price. Generally works as it should.
Cons: The mouse looks and feels very cheap.
The mouse has occasionally stopped responding, as if going into a sleep mode even though I'm actively using it at the time. Spinning the wheel "wakes" it back up immediately. This may be an early sign of a defect that will eventually cause the mouse to become unusable, but it is infrequent and not a real issue for now.
The wireless connection (for the mouse in particular) is highly susceptible to interference from other wireless devices. The accuracy noticeably degrades when I'm using wireless headphones, and will occasionally become completely unusable. Real-world max range is no more than 5 ft. When I'm not using my headphones, the connection is stable.
Other Thoughts: I needed a cheap wireless keyboard and mouse, and at 12 bucks, this fit the bill nicely. At that price, it far exceeds my expectations, but I probably would have been disappointed had I paid the regular price.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: -Beautiful screen.
-Sleek, minimalist design (definitely preferred over all the extra buttons and junk on our last laptop).
-Love the keyboard and the 10-key is a big plus. When I purchased our last laptop about 3.5 years ago, I had to get a 17" monitor in order to get the 10-key.
-Super quiet (is the fan even running?! Oh, yep, there it is. I can hear it if I put my ear right up next to it).
-Overall, it's looking like a great value for the money.
Cons: None so far (but yeah, I've only been messing with it for a few minutes).
Other Thoughts: Yes, I just opened the box and have only been playing with it for a few minutes, but my initial impression is extremely positive. My expectations may have been lowered by my previous laptop ownership experience, but so far this appears to have been a very good choice. Will update if anything goes horribly wrong.READ FULL REVIEW
