Value Keyboard and Mouse combo

 

So, I've been using this combo model for 6+ years and I've always loved them. The feet on the keyboard break very quickly as most do and I've worn down the coating on the mouse in a less than a month with my 40hr a week minimum usage. It flakes off and...

GEAR HEAD KB5150W

 

Note that I only use the keyboard. I threw out the mouse without trying it. I already have a logitech wireless trackball. I needed a wireless keyboard to go with it, and the price for this was reasonable enough.

Comfortable plastic. Keyboard that works. Good price for a basic model. Not much to compliment

Enter key is that reversed-L shape, making the \ key up by the backspace. I prefer having it above the enter key. Just a personal preference, however. Ever so often I get a non-response period of a second or two, or if I'm holding in a key while...

Answer to question you asked me to give

 

To answer the question about the red A -- that is notification that the caps lock key has been pressed. To remove it simply press the Caps Lock key again.

I love the idea that I can type and browse without having to have the keyboard right in front of the computer. I can put it on my lap or even have it across the room.

so far, none

Great price on a wireless combo

 

I bought this combo set to get something for my recent pc build before I upgrade to more high end in the future. These work great and work perfectly. I really like the auto shut off feature on the mouse as I leave it on all the time.

Mediocre

 

You get what you pay for, I also bought a wireless Logitech pair that works immeasurably better and is of much sturdier construction. I'd offer thoughts on the keyboard as well as mouse, but my son spilled a drink into the keyboard within days of...

Recognized Windows 7, Ubuntu, and Linuxmint without any hassle

Mouse stops working often, have to adjust the batteries at times to get it to power back on ; Right mouse button VERY sensitive, annoyingly so, press it very often on accident
