3.0 out of 5 stars Mouse design is poor, 24 Oct. 2010
This review is from: Microsoft Wireless Desktop 3000 Keyboard and Mouse Set - UK Layout (Electronics)
I bought this set for use with my Win7 laptop and initial feelings about the keyboard are positive. As another reviewer noted it is shortcut heaven, and they're configurable too. I hate the mouse though, not because of it's responsiveness which is fine, but because it needs to be turned off after use and there's only one way to do it, by removing the wireless dongle and clipping it into the mouse. Why oh-why build a keyboard that nicely goes to sleep on it's own, but a mouse that needs such fiddly intervention.

I have had this set for four and a half years and I have never switched the mouse off.
For me, the batteries seem to last for ages on both the keyboard and mouse.
The mouse and keyboard are beginning to show some signs of wear and I am just starting to wonder if I can justify treating myself to a new set.
