Wrapped in a slim aluminum casing, it offers 2.4 Ghz wireless communication – that means no annoying delays in what you type and what you see on-screen and no cord clutter.

Its internet browser controls offer 1-touch access to the things you do most. With its slim design and a wireless mouse, this keyboard is a perfect space-saver.|
This is a nice combo set, the only thing i can say bad about it is the volume wheel is a little hard to turn with one finger . you have to push with two fingers for it to work. Set up is easy ,seems very sturdy and works great.........................
I love slim keyboards like laptops and was anxious to get my first wireless one. This thing did not disappoint! I think the fact that it's wireless and not bluetooth is a major benefit. You can plug this into your Xbox 360 or PS3 and use it to send messages, select menus, and navigate the browser in PS3. No setup required, just plug it in and use. Beats the hell out of using the controller to send messages or using that miniature keyboard that you plug into your keyboard. I love this thing and would buy 10 more if I needed them, it's just that good. Volume control is a major bonus too. The only negative I had was the mouse, but that's because I use a 5 button wireless mouse already, but if you don't have one it's probably fine. I'd give this 10 stars if I could, it's just that good!
Broke on me after a year of use3/17/2011
I don't know what happened but it seems like the little usb reciever doesn't work anymore. I tried plugging it in to different ports but my computer doesn't detect it anymore. I tried it with other computers with the same outcome. Now I have to go buy a new keyboard and mouse. :(
Still using it without any issues1/4/2011
This was a great deal. I love my wireless set!!! I didn't know what I was missing before I got it!! No more wires dangling, or getting stuck behind the comupter when using the mouse, and having to pull on the cord before I can get full range of movement out of it!! Nope, those days are over...and I love my new found freedom from wires!! Well not quite newfound, as I have had this set up and running for about a year and a half, and JUST NOW replaced the batteries in them!! Wow, talk about great energy consumption!! Love it, love it, love it!! Highly recommend it!!
I purchased this product on buy.com for $19.99. It is a very nice and slim design featuring 2.4GHz technology. The keyboard does not feature several LED lights that indicate the on and off of the Caps and Num lock, but it is OK for me. Volumne control is also very nice. There is not much delay as to the wireless mouse, unlike a bluetooth mouse which I previous owned. As to the interference with wireless router, as long as your wireless mouse and keyboard directly points to the wireless receiver, you are fine within 5 meters. However, it is interfered by wireless router if the receiver and keyboard/mouse are in different rooms. What I am not satisfied is that there is no key that can switch on and off of the keyboard/mouse that can save battery.
Not bad at all11/9/2009
After reading other reviews I ordered this keyboard and mouse and so far I like it. There is a definite stiffness to the keys as compared to my HP keyboard but I can live with it. Since I am not a true typist it'll serve my needs just fine. The wires are gone (YEAH!) and that's what I was after. The keyboard is lightweight and sits on my lap about the same as my HP wired keyboard does which is a plus for me. The USB reciever plugs right in and the mouse is recognized quickly in Windows Vista 64 Bit OS as well as the keyboard working well after a reboot with the supplied CD software driver installed. Give me Liberty...or give me Death....Naw...just give me this cool wireless setup and that'll be enough for my needs to keep me satisfied with my computing needs. Would I buy it again? I'll know that after I've used it for a few weeks. So far...I like it. Fast shipping and another good purchasing experience from Buy.com. Thank you good people once again for taking care of my computing needs!
One of the best purchases ever!!8/16/2009
I purchased the keyboard and mouse for a 7 year old Compaq that is now running W7 RC. The computer is connected to our television and is what we use for DVD's and internet television. I was wanting a remote but decided to try this out and could not be happier especially for the price. The equipment installed in a matter of seconds with W7 even though it wasn't documented as a supported operating system. The programmed buttons even worked without installing the software that came with the keyboard!! We are now able to control the media player without the mouse. I am probably going to purchase another for my desktop just because it is such a great product for a great price!!

Excellent value. I am using this keyboard and mouse to allow wireless access to a laptop in our living room so my wife can do homework on the television or for controlling videos on the laptop's DVD player or through the internet (hulu, etc.). It's great being able to remotely control the laptop volume/mute, or move around from across the room. The range is fantastic and the keystrokes and mousing is precise.
The keyboard and mouse work great. The keyboard works from anywhere in the room, even from as far as 18 feet. The mute and volume controls are the best features for me.
The keyboard was shipped within 3 days. It looks pretty, and the additional keys are very useful. It is easy to use, plug and synchonize and then use it. The only problem is there may be signal lag when the comupter is in extensive running, such as a game.

Product came sooner than expected. Am totally delighted with product.
Great Keyboard and mouse!3/11/2009
I don't normally write reviews, but this one only has one review, and it's a bad one. This product is awesome. I've only had it for a short while, but it is quiet and easy to type on. The extra keys worked immediately after plugging it in and syncing the products (which took a total of about a minute at max.) The only downfall is the same as above with the caps locks, num lock, and scroll lock not shown on the keyboard, but I honestly don't mind. All it would do would waste the battery anyways, so it seems a little unnecessary to give it a 1 out of 5 for the whole thing. Plus the 20 dollar rebate is awesome and it makes this product well worth the money spent, even before the rebate. I love this thing already and I'd recommend this product to anyone!
