Consumer review (newegg.com)

Meh....

 

Id stick with a decent Logitech board and mouse

Good price, Black, and wireless, and not all curvy like some of the others out there, keys on keyboard are nice and responsive

The mouse.... Intermittent "Auto-sleep" even when Im using it, sometimes 5 minutes, sometimes 2 seconds, battery life in the mouse is horrible

Works fine

 

No caps lock light is a pain in the rear, Its used on an office pc with case sensitive passwords and it can be a hassle. Otherwise its fine.

Wireless is cool, mouse is accurate

No caps lock light

Microsoft 65X-00024 Black 104 Normal Keys 8 Function Keys Wireless Standard Optical Desktop 700

 

I got an open box version. Gosh wonder why they were returned...

Cheap, its wireless, non of that aweful looking ergonimics

My keyboard opens op IE on any computer its connected to at random intervals. The keyboard and mouse both drain batteries, so fast that it was cheaper to get rechargable ones

cheap at best

 

Get a wired set instead, or get a better wireless solution.

It's cheap

It's horrible. They keys are really hard to press. the mouse and keyboard have a pathetic wireless range. My first one came with half of the keys DOA. Chews through batteries like a hog

Lousy

 

Price. If they work, the price is right

I purchased three of these. NONE of them came with batteries and were all open and then re-taped. One of them is actually DOA. I have to get an RMA now

You get what you pay for. This was for a friend's new system but if it were mine, the mouse would have to go.

The keyboard works great and they both look nice. They were cheap

The mouse loses connection after about 10-15 min of inactivity. The keyboard never does this. I can't adjust the mouse to "feel" right after using a high quality laser mouse, and forget about shooting anything in a game

Garbage...don't buy

 

I had problems with 2 Logitech mouse/keyboard combos, so I decided to try out a Microsoft product. Was worse than Logitech. Purchase Logitech or high end MS keyboard combo.

Keyboard has a nice touch/feel to them. Price was decent

Only had it a month. The mouse looses connection every 5 seconds. I have to click the mouse button and move it around to have it reconnect again. MS discontinued this product so no replacement, just a refund if within the 45-day warranty

Trash

 

Infuriating to use, buy a better product, plain and simple.

Cheap price

Serious receiver problems. Mouse and keyboard barely have 2 feet range, even then the signal drops. Gremlins in the mouse cause periodic shutdowns and low battery symptoms even when charged. Some keyboard keys stick when new, just terrible...

Bottom of the pile

 

I would give 5 stars for this item, but this may be a retailer issue. I'm returning the one with the mouse issue. Lost money on the shipping tho.

Slick looking keyboard and mouse with resonable range,comes with batteries. Sorta

I noticed the 2 Desktop 700 models were opened and missing batteries. Bummer. Also, one that I sold came back with a mouse issue. They may have been returns from Newegg that some how wound up back on the shelf
