I but the keyboard for use under Linux on my work machine and have not been disappointed. When I plugged the USB adapter into my laptop, both the mouse and keyboard worked immediately and I have never had connection issues. My opinion is the keyboard keys are a little stiff and I have had keys stick on occasion (may not be the key itself, but the hardware or software). The mouse tracks well, although from time to time it skips (probably some wireless interference). Under Linux (Ubuntu Dapper Drake), both the keyboard and mouse just work. I plugged it in, started the machine and was using it immediately. On the keyboard the only keys that don't work are the four arrow keys on the left. I was able to program the other keys to function under Gnome, but those four don't function and could not be programmed. The mouse was a different story. While the basic functions work as expected, the horizontal scroll and three thumb-tip buttons do not work.

(Ordered on 10/19/2007 I love this device! The performance is excellent right out the box! I don’t normally write reviews, but the performance of this product inspired me. What I have to say is consistent with others comments, so I will cut and paste, (I wasn't sure if it was going to work for what I intended to use it for but right out of the box it worked flawlessly. I wanted to use my large screen tv as a monitor for my computer: It took seconds to install and set up. My keyboard and mouse are approximately 26 feet from the computer, yet they work like they are wired devices.). Great Product, I will buy another on soon!

Difficulty with keyboard

on 9/25/2007

The mouse is very good, tracks very well and synced immediately upon installation. However, the keyboard has very poor response and has a long lag time to awake after going to sleep mode. Had much difficulty in getting the keyboard to sync during installation, and have had to re sync several times. I find the Logitech M3400 to be a much better alternative, for not much more money.
