4.0 out of 5 stars Not perfect but pretty good, 22 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dell KM632 Wireless Mouse and Keyboard (Accessory)
Having spent a few hours using this keyboard today, I think this is a surprisingly good keyboard to work with. The keys do feel a bit ‘soft’ and therefore may take some acclimatisation in relation to my previous ‘wired’ Dell keyboard, but the Scrabble tile keys do mean that you can type faster as there is less key travel involved. I can feel that my typing is faster already and I am already getting used to it just by typing this piece.

I’m sure there are better quality keyboards out there (I use a Logitech Bluetooth K810 which is superb), but these tend to be many times the price that I paid for this and at just over £20 delivered, it has to be a bargain.
The mouse is a pretty basic 3 button scroll wheel model, is a comfortable size and weight with the batteries in, and is really responsive. I have experienced no noticeable lag of any kind when typing or ‘mousing’ that has been reported elsewhere.

A couple of things to note on the down side. The only LED indicator is a small power light, which does go off after a period once powered up, so even in use, there are no power indicators showing. I understand this comes on amber when the batteries are low. There are no other on board LED indicators for CAPS Lock etc., but I downloaded a driver from Dell which gives an on screen indication of CAPS Lock. Not ideal as a compromise, but not a deal breaker for me.

With regards typing position adjustment, there is a battery compartment underneath at the rear which gives the keyboard an inbuilt degree of angle, but I find this slope comfortable. This is just as well really as there is no other way to adjust of the keyboard angle other to put some paper or something under it if you prefer a flat typing surface or to increase the slope.
Niggles aside, overall, I am really pleased so far with this keyboard and mouse combo and is good value for money.

Iam intrigued by your comment about the lack of a caps lock light?! This is a battery operated device and having an led on for this purpose would drain the battery. Ive had numerous wireless keyboards over the years and have never had nor expected a Caps lock indicator on the keyboard. Most if not all use an on-screen indicator as you describe. Might I suggest you buy a wired keyboard if you must have this indication?

When you try to be helpful, there's always one!
I'm sorry you are so perturbed, its a wonder you can sleep at night.
Anyway, check out Logitech K810 or the MK520. You may find it scary, but the former is an 'Illuminated' keyboard. Yes, every key lights up and you can type in the dark - woooo! and the battery life lasts months. I have both of these BTW. Maybe not, with your aversion to lights, in case it upsets you as these have the aforementioned indicator lights. No point trying to get on your high horse when you don't know what you are talking about eh?.
And with regards you making buying suggestions for me, I'll pass on that one I think.
