Firstly, the keyboard and mouse themselves...

Mouse it comfy for left handers like me and very accurate, with assignable shortcut buttons on the sides. No worries there. Scrolling wheel is as smooth as you would expect

Keyboard takes some getting used to due the shape and oddly sized keys, but I think it's a matter if getting used to it with practice. I'm constantly making mistakes at the moment! It has a detachable wrist lift that goes on the bottom of the keyboard but i honestly can't see anyone using it, it makes things very awkward and un-natural. The large array of shortcut buttons are useful but i find the dedicated Vista gadgets button hardly works, but not something I would use regularly. Media keys don't work all that well either, unless the media player you use is the current active window. Otherwise, it tries to open real player on my PC!

One word of warning to Vista users, a common issue after connecting a variety of wireless packages is that you'll notice your screensaver fails to start anymore, as well as some power saving settings failing to work. Microsoft have acknowledged the fault and have released an update downloadable through windows update called "HID Non User Input Data Filter". Run windows update and you will find this under "optional hardware" updates. This fixes the screensaver and power saving issues.

Though some reviews I read call the keyboard "awkward" and even "faulty", and the mouse "an attempt at an ambidextrous mouse" - I can hand on heart tell you that in my experience, this is false. Perhaps this is due to the fact that I have developed a weird skill which rather than using the shift key for capital letters, I use the caps lock ON and then OFF. This of course eliminates the annoyance of a small shift key on the right hand side, which is a pretty minor issue. Now for the products themselves:

THE KEYBOARD.

The keyboard types like a dream - the keys are soft and quiet to type on and whilst some say the odd shape and differing sizes is a bad thing - it is really simple to get to use it. The layout is deemed "ergonomic" which I found means essentially that it reduces RSI for constant typer's. Though I don't use it much, I can certainly see how this would benefit as the keyboard has a really comfortable feel to it ("comfort curve" technology", made better by the leather hand rest which is in front of the whole keyboard. The shortcuts are actually really handy - there is a magnifying shortcut, as well as several browsing shortcuts. One of the nicest additions I found was the music section - there are seven keys devoted to music player - your bog standard FF/RW and then mute, volume etc. Theses were actually REALLY handy when dealing with a busy set of applications and just wanting to quickly change the song. The F-LOCK is a handy idea as well - many of the F keys are rarely used, and this allows some great features to be accessed quickly and efficiently!

I own this product.
while not having the "short range" problem... I had a problem with the keyboard signal.
Apparently, while pressing a key (say 'W' playing an FPS) sometime it stop working so I had to re-press the key (I died countless times against final Crysis boss).
After some (angry) test I've found a way to make it works. Easy put the receiver in a position where the mouse is never located between keyboard and receiver. that was stopping the keyboard data stream.

Hope it works for All of you.
Bye.

I am quite astonished with people's complaints. Firstly no-one has complained about the mouse since it is a thing of beauty. The first noticeable perk is how comfortable it feels in the hand, I'm a right handed user and it feels really nice and solid in my hand. My hands are on the larger size however, and smaller handed people may prefer a smaller mouse. The seconds great perk is the battery life, literally you can insert 2 AA Duracell batteries and just forget about it for a good 6 months. Great compared to most mice needing to be recharged after just days

Now the keyboard which has received some negative amazon reviews. I personally just can't understand it. I'll do my best to correct the problems I've heard. #

(1) "limited wireless range": the range isn't it's greatest feature, travels about 1.5m max which is fine for majority of people others could easily buy a USB extension lead for about £2.
(2) "the keys do not respond": this is something that I have never experienced, personally I feel the keys are one of the highlights of the keyboard. It can take some getting used to since it has a soft touch as opposed to a traditional hard touch, however once adjusted I can guarantee that you will find this more comfortable and easier to type with.
(3) "the mouse jitters sometimes": this cannot be a direct criticism to this products, one problem of laser mice in general is occasional jittering but it's so minor that the majority of people do not notice it. Only really becomes a problem for graphic designers using the mouse or for intense gamers.
(4) "batteries lasting 1hour": I seriously don't know what batteries you are using since my keyboard lasts for months. I'd recommend Duracell or Energizer, not 99p shop.
