As for the keyboard, I think it's well functioning in terms of distance but at the same time my computer's usage is pretty classic and straightforward. I am indeed using the keyboard on a desktop mode. I know some of you might be using your keyboard for a TV use and then if that's the case, I cannot say anything (on the other hand, the mouse has a good range because I have one of those that I use on my laptop HDMI-plugged to my TV). What I have to say though about the keyboard is that it is relatively cheaply made. It feels like I could easily break it with my fingers while I think a keyboard should be broken if you smash it against a wall. Not with your fingers! It doesn't - according to me - feel right. And I am the kind of guy who press hard while typing. I am not a soft guy. I am alone. Snif.
Well, that's it! For the price, I think it's decent. The extra fourth star is for the mouse. I've seen it alone sold for 40$ at my local academic store. With the price difference, I was able to buy myself some extra chipotle sauce on Amazon. If you do like me, just be careful with the sauce though or you might have to buy an extra keyboard, again.
The original batteries lasted for more than a year and whenever I replace batteries they last for at least one year.
About durability; I finished my two years masters program with this combo. I wrote my final thesis with this keyboard, it is not the best keyboard but I would grade it above average. My two years old daughter has been throwing this mouse and keyboard from my desk since she was born in Jan-2013 and still both items are operating perfectly fine. Obviously, they are heavily scratched and look heavily used but they are operating fine.
This mouse is more accurate and versatile than my much more expensive Logitech gaming mice. This mouse works fine on my desk, on my kitchen slab, on my dining table, and on my couch. The range of this combo is never short for me. I live in an apartment and I can operate my PC from any corner of my living room.
Initially I used this combo with my Work PC, but after using it for two years I have plugged this combo with my Media PC which I use to play movies etc. So you can well imagine how sturdy this pair is.
Furthermore, I have used this combo with Windows XP, Windows 7, and Windows 8 without any compatibility or drivers issues. May be because it is a product by Microsoft, it fits well with Microsoft PCs.
I would give this combo more than 5 stars and would definitely recommend this combo to anyone who needs a Keyboard + Mouse combo for regular use.
I have no complaints about the mouse, but the keyboard is not good. Some of the keys don't work well (mostly the space and numpad). I have to press them exactly in the middle, or they may not work. This makes me type really slower than usual. It is really annoying.

Couldn't ask for better. With an All in One, the wires from the mouse & keyboard that come with it can easily have the AIO pull all over the place. Read morePublished 3 days ago by Deanna S.
