Keyboard rattles around under use, and the worst mouse experience - ever!
on 28 April 2015
For the price i was expecting functional, not exceptional. I bought this for kids use, rather than expose my much more expensive keyboards and mice. Unfortunately, the keyboard base is molded plastic with no extendable feet. Its slightly warped/bowed in the middle, which means when typing it rattles and moves around on any kind of smooth surface. Other than that the keys are responsive enough and it types ok when on my lap.
The mouse is truly awful, no matter which seeting i have it on, or how much i might adjust the settings in the OS software. the reponse is La-a-a-a-a-g-y to the point of making it seriously frustrating, and unuseable. I have a variety of wired and wireless mice that i use on windows, mac and linux systems at home and work - this is without doubt the worst mouse i have ever tried to use. Given the other high praise received on reviews, i can only surmise that i have been spoiled by long usage of superior devices and the contrast between them is great, or that i received faulty units.
I'd send it back, but its not worth the hassle and my time. Take away for me, is that keyboards and mice are not quite at the cheap reliable commodity stage just yet. Probably worth paying an extra £5-10 for an MS or logitech budget combo if you want to be able to use this across platforms and frustration free.
