    Great bargain

    I bought this for my mother to replace her old keyboard that the letters had worn off of. She only needed a keyboard, but this bundle was a better deal than just a keyboard alone. She has used it for about 4 months now & it’s doing great. I only gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because there doesn’t seem to be anything that indicates when the caps/number lock is on. Most keyboards have a light to indicate when the caps and/or number lock is on, but this one doesn’t. It’s only a minor inconvenience, but it’s worth mentioning. Overall, great keyboard at a great price, & mom has a spare mouse for when she wears her current one out.

    Inaccurate Description of item in Product Summary

    I searched and read the detail for information of this item. I was looking for a HP keyboard with indicator lights. The details of this product stated that this keyboard had indicator lights. I purchased it and brought it home to find that when I opened the box and started using the keyboard, it in fact, does not have indicaor lights. When I called the store to let them know, they were very nonchalant about it, saying that sometimes the Product Information is not accurate. I was very very disappointed. If you are looking for a keyboard with indicator lights, C2600 does not come with them.

    Do not like that the Num Lock key doesn't have a light above it to tell me it is on. Also do not like when I'm typing an e-mail the back key doesn't work - have to use the mouse cursor & can't tell if it is where I want it unless I type something. ESPECIALLY DO NOT LIKE that there was no paperwork with the keyboard to explain the silver buttons on left & right of keyboard. I did a search but could not find the explanation either for this model of keyboard.

    Good keyboard and mouse for the money

    I only needed a simple USB keyboard and this was the cheapest name brand I could find in a store that was close to me. It was just s bonus that a mouse came with it and now I have a backup mouse if I ever need one. The only gripe I have about the keyboard is it's so extremely feather light that it constantly moves all over the desk when typing on the keyboard and the desk is a smooth surface. Otherwise, I would have rated it 5 stars instead of 4.

    This is a simple keyboard that gets the job done as well as any I have ever had. The keys are somewhat smaller than my Mac keyboard I had on my Mac Mini. It has all the keys you need to get the job done at a really good price. The mouse it comes with is its weak point and I just couldn’t deal with it so I used my Mac mouse.

    Sometimes you just want simple plain old USB devices—no bluetooth, no batteries, no fuss. The one thing that would make it better is if you could daisy chain the mouse through the keyboard rather than consuming another USB port on whatever machine you hook it up to. I was adding this to my mom's Chromebook (with only one USB-A port) and had to buy a USB hub first.

    I purchased this keyboard because keys had started sticking on my old one. This is the first keyboard I've ever had that requires you to hit "NUMLOCK" each time you turn on the computer. It's annoying, and I wouldn't have bought this particular one if I had realized it. I did purchase the least expensive one on the shelf, but would have forked out more had I known.

    Don't buy this. The keyboard has no lights indicating that caps lock/ number lock is on. The keys feel REALLY cheap and the included mouse is also bad. It tracks very inaccurately and if you move the mouse slowly, the cursor may not move at all (or sporadically).

    Really quite poor

    So first of all, the keyboard is missing two really important LEDs--the one that tell you that CAPS LOCK is on and one that tell you if NUM LOCK is one. It's frustrating to constantly have to check. Also, the mouse has a hard time picking up movements. I had to replace it soon after. Huge lit-down, esp coming from a name brand.

    Better than Wireless

    I found the wireless keyboard and mouse that came with my new Pavilion HP computer were a little slow. I've also found in the past that they can often run out of batter power at the most inopportunte moments. They are also small. This wired keyboard is standard keyboard size, which I prefer, and very fast and dependable.

    The young lady whom I dealt with at Best Buy provided the perfect solution when I explained to her that the number keys on my laptop no longer functioned. I bought the external keyboard and it's great. Kudos to her for all her help!

    Pretty Good Keyboard

    This keyboard is pretty good overall. It is your basic wired keyboard. The only negative I have found is that you can accidentally hit the caps lock and not know it unless you look at the screen. There is no light on the caps lock to warn you. Other than that I have no complaints with the product.

    Mouse seems sluggish at times and uncooperative at other times. The Caps Lock key is VERY sensitive so I find myself typing in all caps before I realize it-I have to look at my fingers a lot so don't realize it at first.

    I bought this keyboard and mouse for my 10 year old son he wanted it to hook up to his PS4. Works great except the sometimes when he’s using the mouse it says function blocked we still haven’t figured out why it does that! But overall quality and look is great

    I have bought several of these for my company. The majority had issues with keys sticking and repeating. They also don't have LEDs or indicators that CAPS LOCK and similar functions are on/off. Spend a few more bucks and get something else.

    I tried two different wireless keyboards with my HP Envy computer and both had problems and used up batteries. This keyboard plugged easily into my CPU and I am very pleased with the responsiveness of the keystrokes. I should have bought this in the first place.

    I wish I would have looked at this one closer. The keys are in differnt places than my old keyboard and I have such a long history of muscle memory (2004) with this keyboard that I cannot get used to the new one. I'm keeping it just in case my old one dies. Maybe one day I'll get used to it.

    Flimsy, lacks Cap Lock and Num Lock lights

    Posted
    JPearson

    This is not a cheap $12 keyboard, so it's hard to believe the thing provides no way of knowing whether the cap lock or num lock is on or off. Also, this keyboard doesn't sit completely flat on the desk - it's slightly warped. For the price there are many better choices.

    purchased this item to replace one that had died. great functionality, and loaded with special features. A lot of one touch buttons that save you a lot of time, and unnecessary keystrokes. Great keyboard for the price. The included mouse, have not used. I use a wireless mouse, instead.
