    Great and Durable

    I couldn't find my old review to update so I am creating a new one. I bought this combo during black friday in 2011. I am still using the same one 7 years later. I have never had any problem with the keyboard or mouse themselves. I liked the mouse so much I bought two more, one for my personal laptop and one for my work laptop. In the 7 years I've owned these I've only had to change the batteries two or three times. Granted I am not using them for 8 hours a day 7 days a week but they do get used quite a bit. If others are having to change their batteries more often they may be using cheap batteries. I got a USB extension cord for the dongle so I could put it on my desk, rather than connected directly to the computer on the floor under my desk. I only did this so I could use the keyboard and mouse from our bed when streaming TV. This is not to say the signal is weak by any means, I just wanted it to have better line of sight. If I had to give one complaint, its that there is no light to indicate the Num Lock/Caps Lock but in my opinion that is very minor and doesnt deserve a star deduction. One problem I had with the set up is I started experiencing scrolling issues with the mouse. I updated drivers and all that but it didnt fix the issue. I decided to open up the mouse and it turned out that the wheel that detects the scrolling had dry skin/oil debris in it that was keeping the light from getting through. I cleaned it off and it was as good as new. This was after using the mouse for over 3 years at that point and was totally preventable on my part by just keeping my hands clean and wiping off the mouse every once in a while. Another instance, I accidentally spilled orange juice on the keyboard and started experiencing sticky keys. I just popped the keyboard apart, after taking the batteries out, and rinsed everything off including the pad that detects the key presses. Put it back together after letting it dry and everything worked fine. Again, this was my fault and the keyboard came through it like a champ. Bottom line, there are always outliers that may have production defects but those are the extreme exception, not the rule. If I ever need to replace this combo for any reason I will absolutely get the same setup or equivalent if it is retired.

    Avoid this keyboard / mouse combo, spend more

    So I had written a lengthy unbiased review, prior to accidentally hitting the "new to me" back button on the left side of the mouse and unfortunately the entire review is gone. Here is the short version. The keys are weak, lazy feeling. They do not move smoothly and make the keyboard feel very cheap. The keystroke seems long like a 1980's computer and a step back in time honestly. The keyboard layout gets a failure stamp in my opinion. Why any manufacturer would move the "Home / End / Delete / Page UP and Down" buttons is beyond me. Any professional who uses any of these keys will hate it immediately. Unless you like to hunt and peck with keys, you'll likely agree with me. The keyboard is wavy from left to right. This makes it nothing but awkward. Further, the W shape must be intended for folks with small hands as my lengthy fingers feel crowded more than ever on this large footprint keyboard so it makes me wonder if the arrangement wasn't shrunk down to fit all the bells and whistle buttons (do we really need a 1.5" square music or camera button folks? The top two inches of the keyboard are wasted space and the similarly sized space bar makes me wonder if anyone has EVER struggled to find the largest button on a keyboard since the start of time necessitating this one to be twice as tall.) In short, I hate this keyboard, and it's going back in the box to return as soon as this review is done. Onto the mouse. It's large size is what sucked me into this purchase. Spending $100 for the only other large mouse on display that fit my perhaps above average hand size was out of the question, why every mouse has to be designed to fit in the change pocket of your jeans is beyond me. Sure, a mouse for on the go should be compact but does everyone really operate on a desk the size of a notebook at home or are they small so keyboards can become larger to support surfboard sized space bars? The mouse wheel / center button lacks definition and accuracy. Not enough of a positive feel for my taste. Further, I can move the button a click at a time and see no change on the display regardless of the setting in the included Set point software. Speaking of which, it hung during it's initial "3 required updates" which is another bad sign that this thing was shoved out the door full of bad design. The buttons feel nice otherwise, granted make sure you want the back / forward buttons before they ruin your day too. However, big complaint #2 is the laser for this mouse tracks very poorly. I've tested it on a wooden desktop, used a mouse pad, tried it on a sheet of paper, etc. Spotty at best even after properly configured. Reminds me of an old roller ball mouse with lint stuck in it. Speaking of lint, the underside where the laser is recessed is a terrible design. It has a cylindrical hole smaller than a pencil eraser on the underside about 1/3-1/2" deep just begging to be clogged with lint or dirt and requires you to hunt down tweezers and a q-tip to fish out. Another Logitech mouse I purchased over a year ago has a angled opening making it possible to fish anything out of / clean with a simple tissue so this is a step backwards in design in my opinion. So, I would pass on this model despite it's attractive price tag. The fast buttons are a nice feature, but I'd prefer they be programmable. Perhaps this keyboard has a niche though, older folks with arthritis may find it comfortable and enjoy the large "simple" buttons for one touch access, but if you're a professional like myself who was looking for a keyboard to spend 40 hours a week behind keep searching and do what I plan to do, spend a little more and remember you get what you pay for!

    Good product, decent price point

    For wireless keyboard/mouse combination, I think this is a pretty good buy. Over the years (I've been a programmer since 1964) I’ve been through a fair number of keyboards. These days they are all generally made the same: a thin sheet of plastic with conductive ink printed on it, covered with a second “spacer” layer of plastic with holes in it, and finally a third piece of plastic with conductive ink. The keys press the top sheet of plastic down to make contact with the bottom sheet. In time, the conductive print can wear, especially on frequently used keys like E, S, T, etc. You start having typing problems. As a retired engineer, I have more than once turned the keyboard upside down, taken all of the screws out, opened it up, cleaned the conductive ink, and put the whole thing back together again. When this fixes the problem, it usually doesn’t last very long. So, keyboards don’t last forever and have to be replaced. I happen to think this particular keyboard/mouse combination from Logitech is a pretty decent product for the price. It sets up easily and has an inconspicuous USB wireless receiver which you can plug into your system just about anywhere and it does not get in the way. Remember though, if you’re a gamer and want a smart and illuminated keyboard, you pretty much have to buy a wired USB keyboard as that’s where the power comes from. I have a couple of those too.

    Excellent Features & Functions

    Posted
    Anonymous

    The list of available functions are intuitive and laid out very well. Not accustomed to using a curved keyboard of late, the shift, Windows and control keys required several days to become familiar with, as upon initial use, I was typing the wrong keys when attempting to perform short cuts, but now that I am familiar with the placement of those keys, workflow is much quicker and more natural. The keys are relatively quite. For a fast typer and one who works with live audio and video, this was one of many welcomed attributes. The soft palm pad provides comfort and just enough grip to keep your palms in place. A few of the function keys could have been made to have their own button, but then again, it is rare that I use them. The overall keyboard could be slimmer, even with the audio and other buttons remaining in place. There is a lot of wasted space at the top of the keyboard, where the audio controls are located. Elminating this wasted space, would slim the keyboard down just enough to allow the keyboard to fit within my soft Ogio brief case. Battery life is impressive on the keyboard and mouse. I kept them on nearly every day throughout the month I have owned it and have yet to burn through the batteries. The option to turn each of separately is great when one of them is not in use. The mouse is precise and equally ergonomic. The overall feel is amid the best I have owned. For the features and functionality, I would be willing to spend much more than I spent on this package, but it was considerably cheaper than others in its class. Thanks.

    A Good value

    I have had this keyboard/mouse combo for about a month now and it has been fairly good so far. I am using them with a Samsung all-in-one running windows 8.1. The first thing you will probably notice is the size of the keyboard. It is certainly larger than the notebook sized one that came with the computer, but also larger than any other standard keyboard I have used in the past. This is not a big deal to me, but if space is limited for you, it may be something to take into consideration. Installation is about as straightforward as it gets, just plug and play. Windows found the drivers and installed them automatically. This allows the keyboard to function, but some of the features will not work without the installation of Setpoint from Logitech website. Unfortunately for me, I have been unable to get Setpoint to work correctly, so I am still unable to use of some of the keyboard features, such as the applications switcher. I am not sure if I would use this or other features, but I will never know if they are not options. That being said, the volume and video playback controls work rather well and I find myself using them quite often. The keyboard itself is pretty comfortable and doesn’t strain my wrists like others in the past. The keys are a bit noisy and at moments there is some lag time, but that actually appears to be getting a bit better the more I use it. The included mouse is actually very nice and I am extremely happy with it. It is accurate and easy to maneuver. The forward/back browser buttons are also extremely convenient once you get used to using them. There are a few issues with the software, and hopefully I can get them figured out, but all in all the ergonomics are a pretty big step up compared to other keyboards/mouse I have used in the past.

    Great product, Having trouble...? READ BELOW...

    Great product, got on sale so great price. If you are having any second thoughts because of some of the reviews, or are having trouble with this device please read below... Check to see if you are running other electronics in your house that use 2.4GHz. That might explain any problems listed by those that give this a low rating. I have the keyboard and mouse and love it, however I threw out a 2.4GHz phone that I really don't use anymore anyway because it was causing interferrence. (Make sure you have DECT 6.0) I also have a wireless security camera that works on the same frequency, along with a baby moniter. These devices didn't interfere with each other that much, (I did have some problems with the camera, however I was able to tweak the settings to use 2.32GHz) The fact that the others didn't cause too many problems before and the keyboard and mouse do is because they don't have a scanning device like the phone to jump between small fluxuations in the frequencies to adjust to any interferrence. If those listed above don't fix your problem then you got a lemon and should take back and get a new one. That doesn't make it a bad product overall, I have yet to find any product from any company that doesn't have any units that are sold without having a few problems. It is a great product as long as it is comfortable for you, as some people don't like the physical setup, or the size of the mouse.

    Mouse connection issues

    Posted
    maffman

    When I got my product home, I plugged it in right away and the software was installed automatically and within seconds it was ready to use. However, also right away I was having problems with the mouse being 'jumpy' or 'laggy'. So after this happened I tried plugging the USB from the back of my computer to the front, didn't help; I tried taking away my mousepad and using it on my flat desk, didn't help; so I ended up just switching back to my wired mouse. On the plus side, the keyboard is comfy and very quiet. So for the keyboard, I would give it 4-5 stars, but the mouse, probably 1-2 as it makes it very difficult to do anything. So overall: Pros: - Keyboard is comfortable - Many defined and customizable buttons such as: application switcher, zoom button, pictures, music, media center, calculator, and power button; additional functions that you must hold the function (Fn) button down to use. - All buttons are completely customizable and can be turned off if you wish. Also, caps lock, windows button, num lock, and insert buttons can be disabled. - Mouse is also comfortable - Mouse also has customizable side buttons - All wireless - Fairly good price Cons: - Jumpy mouse (most likely connection issues); unusable in my case - Wave design may not be for everybody So overall, I have no problems with the keyboard but because of the problems with the mouse, it kind-of ruined it for me. I'm a little disappointed, usually Logitech is reliable.

    I recently bought this product thinking I could kill 2 birds with one stone. Mission accomplished, for the most part. After installation, I ran into some issues in which the keyboard and mouse would lose connection to the receiver. After checking my driver and reading the troubleshooting from Logitech, I came to the conclusion the interference was due to my wireless network antenna. Logitech recommends keeping the receiver 8" away from other electronics; a difficult feat for some PC layouts. I ended up using the USB extender (which is included) to route the receiver up to my desk space right in front of the keyboard and mouse. After making that adjustment, I haven't had any lag or connection issues; however, I don't exactly feel like I have a wireless setup since I now have to remain so close to the receiver. The fix I described works for me since I'm on a desktop and don't expect to be moving around too much, but this products' interference issues would be a disaster for a laptop where the wireless card/antenna is very close to the USB ports. Hopefully, they can find a fix for the interference issues since just about everything in the house is going wireless. In summary, a great looking/feeling/easy to operate combo as long as wireless network cards/antennas aren't nearby (<8").

    OK for amateurs with Windows

    I hooked it up to windows and got the setpoint software after a lengthy setup process to program the hot keys I got almost everything but media center working properly. The real problem was when I hooked it up to my Mac. I downloaded the required zip drive of logitech control center for the mac and it would not recognize the keyboard. Since I bougt the wireless wave "Combo" I assumed both would work. I can type with the keyboard but as far as being able to one touch open itunes or anything else for that matter, for get it. I ended up calling support twice waiting over 30 minutes only to find out none of the new keyboards in 2010 or newer will work with a mac(typing will but programming hot keys wont). Since I use my mac more than my pc this product and for that matter the whole product line up of new keyboards from logitech fail my test. I will return it and get an older keyboard from logitech or a newer keyboard from apple. BTW the way the keys go up and down on this keyboard took me no time at all to learn, although I'm not sure that its a benefit, its just different. A huge pro for this combo is the mouse, being able to scroll horizontally and vertically with the m510 which is the mouse part of this combo is very convenient and the thumb button that lets me go back a page or forward a page when web browsing is super helpful. I will buy the mouse separately, I think it's even better than the magic mouse from apple.

    This keyboard and mouse combo is decent. I actually have two of these sets, plus an additional mouse that I bought separate. The ergonomic keyboard design is nice, and it has a lot of helpful buttons which can be customized to do various tasks like launching Windows Media Center. The mouse is comfortable and accurate. It has customizable buttons. I use them for forward/back functions in my browser, or for gaming hotkeys/controls. The scroll wheel feels a little cheap and sloppy, but overall I like the mouse. Sometimes the keyboard cuts out like the signal isn't reaching the receiver. Could be because of something physically blocking the signal or because of interference; it runs on the 2.4gHz band, which is used by a lot of other products like Wi-Fi routers and baby monitors. I use this keyboard and mouse to run my laptop while it's hooked up to my TV, so the laptop is actually across the room. When the keyboard is up close to the receiver it works fine. Also, the receiver does not get along well with USB 3.0. This can be worked around easily by plugging it into a 2.0 port, or by using the USB extension cable that is provided with the keyboard.

    If you spend a lot of time on the keyboard, the bluetooth wave is a great way to help keep those hands from getting tired so fast. I take mine with me in the bag with the laptop. I'm at the office no matter where I go now. The customization features are pretty incredible. I only use a few of the buttons, but the ones I use have spoiled me completely to any other control surface on my laptop!! :) I love the way the keys feel. There's no click, but there's a great response. When I'm really typing fast, I can feel that curved key surface working with me instead of against me. If you're looking for a more pronounced wave, this isn't the keyboard for you. The curvature is mild, but just enough. The only downside I've found is that the keyboard will double up on some keystrokes if I'm just a LITTLE too far away (like with the laptop on a side table next to my recliner. The best fix was moving the bluetooth receiver to the other side of the laptop. That was enough to completely eliminate the problem. I'd recommend this to anyone who types for extended periods of time. This is not a gaming keyboard, but a typist's keyboard.

    My keyboard on my notebook was having some issues and since I mostly use it at my desk anyway, I decided to get a full size wireless keyboard and mouse to give me better functionality. I've always had good luck with Logitech so looked there first. I found this on sale, though it would be worth it at regular price, too. The keystrokes give me the right tactile feedback, the wrist rest is soft on my wrists, and it has all the features I could ever want in a keyboard and more. And all the keys are in the "right" locations! I hate it when they move keys around from the most common positions, seemingly just to be different. MS does that a lot. The only downside is no lights to indicate when my CAPS Lock or Num Lock is on. As it has everything else I'd want in a keyboard I do not understand why Logitech left those off. The mouse has the same great feel on the hand. Both are very responsive, despite being wireless. The USB dongle is stubby, so I don't ever have to remove it, even when packing it in my backpack and going places. Overall, one of the better computer accessory purchases I've made in years!

    I purchased two of these keyboards to replace older keyboards (Microsoft 3000 V2.0) on my home computer and work computer. I am a touch typist and I do not like having to switch between different keyboards. I love the touch and response of the keys and I have adapted to the small difference in physical key spacing from my last keyboard. However there is one issue that still frustrates me: where the insert key is. I work on mainframe computers and I am used to the Insert, Home, Page Up, Delete, End, and Page Down keys being in a 3x2 arrangement where the Insert key is in the upper left of that group. On this keyboard it has a 2x3 arrangement with the Home key being in that upper left position, and the Delete keys takes up two positions down the left. The Insert key has been moved to a 3 key group above it. I still have not trained myself to reach a bit further than I am used to in order to hit the Insert key. Too many times I am typing along, what to insert something and not looking I see my cursor jump to Home, because I hit the Home key, where my fingers are used to finding the Insert key.

    I bought this keyboard on sale for about half the retail pric, and it is a great value at that price. At retail price, I think it's priced about right, and there are a few other options out there you may like more. Keyboards are kind of a personal item. I like the feel of the keys, they are very soft. I re-programmed the left- and right-wheel buttons on the mouse to scroll through tabs. I use it for gaming, and while there's occasional dropped keys, it's not an issue, and probably due to sensor placement. They give you a USB extension cable, a nice bonus, and I'm going to play with moving my sensor around. The 6 keys above the arrows (INS HOME DELETE END PGUP PGDN# are only 5 #INSERT is moved up where scroll lock normally is), and vertical, instead of horizontal. I do like the double-sized delete key. I do not like the F keys at the top, they are in groups of three, where everyone else does it in groups of 4. Not a huge deal, just will take a little getting used to. That's why the design is 4 stars.

    I do quite a bit of typing for a living and I type very fast. After years of using a split keyboard, I decided to give this one a try. That was quite a few years ago and the few other brands I've tried since then have not held a candle to this one. I love this keyboard, but the only two complaints I have about it are (1) the letters/numbers tend to wear off the keyboard (not a problem for me, but it might be for others); and (2) the spacebar. I tend to go through these keyboards about one every two to three years and the spacebar is always the issue. I do recommend spraying condensed air on the keyboard to keep it clean. It has a tendency to collect dust and, in my case, dog hair and food particles. The keys are very easy to lift with a pair of tweezers if you need to clean under them, but I do NOT recommend lifting the spacebar; you'll never get it put back in place right (learned my lesson). Also, keep in mind if you do lift the keys you will void the warranty!

    Best Keyboard and Mouse Ever

    Lets just start off with AES encryption, wireless keyboards should be encrypted no questions asked, but still some aren't. This Keyboard is AES encrypted between the Keyboard and receiver, awesome. Second, the ergonomic design of this keyboard is amazingly comfortable. I have been using regular squared keyboards and laptop keyboards normally before this one, so it was an adjustment to having the keys so perfectly aligned to my fingers, but one greatly appreciated. It doesn't just contour the angle but the elevations as well, and it is amazing. I have large hands and it allows my fingers to arch normally instead of trying to squeeze them altogether like normal keyboards. Third, the extras are great, the media controls work flawlessly, calculator button gets used endlessly, zoom, camera and a couple others. never skips a beat and it comes with an extension cord for a USB port. which brings me to the last point, both the mouse and keyboard use one tiny wireless receiver so you only use one USB port for both. I love them in short.

    Nice features, same bad wireless technology

    Really love the keyboard with it's comforting layout and many buttons and features. The mouse is a bit small for my hand and is harder to grip. The software that comes with it is great and adds a lot to the features of the product. Unfortunately, the problem is with the wireless communication. First day it worked perfectly. Second day was constant issues of not responding, responding very late, and rarely 'holding' a key. I'm only 6-8' away and it was having this issues...why get flawed wireless in the first place? To give it a fair chance, I unplugged the USB receiver from the back of the computer and put it in the front so it lines up more directly. It still had issues on and off at random times. To be even more fair, I used the USB extension cable to make sure the receiver pointed RIGHT at me (my front usb port points up a little). After doing this it has been working for a couple days without issue but I am not confident in the product. It seems wireless technology did NOT get much better, just less finicky if you set it up EXACTLY right. Maybe there is some interference or my neighbor has the exact keyboard as I do, but it took some work to get it to work right.

    This keyboard and mouse address my three basic concerns about wireless input devices. They were latency, battery-life, and mouse-size. Working on a keyboard all day I want it to perform just like a wired. This one did. I type all day and the keyboard kept up with me all day. It felt like there was no lag between typing and it appearing on the screen. Win! Previous devices would run out of juice in less three months. This combo is rated at 24 months! That's plenty of time to grab extra batteries without feeling rushed. Lastly previous mice never felt comfortable like a wired desk mouse and were less of than desirable material built(very light or flimsy). The mouse was very ergonomic and it had some good weight on it. These three things really did it for me. The Senior Engineer, on my team, had this exact keyboard and mouse on his desk. I had to show him something. When I reached to use the mouse, I felt how hefty the mouse was. I never knew they made mice with such good weight. I was sold!

    I love the feel of the wave keyboard. I find it easier to type on this board in comparison to other flat boards that I have used in the past. I have used this 510 mouse in the past, and it cannot be beat. I used the combo for playing a Blizzard game, and it worked great. You can set all the buttons (7) on the mouse for any keystroke you so desire. The same goes for the keyboard itself. It has 9 separate buttons that can be set in the Logitech SetPoint software. The reason for the 4 stars is that I did find that the RF Connection between the devices and the receiver does not have an extensive range. I had to purchase a USB Extention Cord at a later time due to latency/disconnection from the USB Receiver. Since I have purchased and placed the extender about a foot and a half from from the mouse/keyboard combo, I have not had the latency/disconnection issues. If I did not have to make that extra purchase, I definitely would have given this product 5 stars.
