It's been more than two years since I bought this pair of useful gadgets and I'm still using them. I remember that I was getting tired of the inconvenient cables that got stuck every time I moved the mouse a lot or tried to clean my old-fashioned keyboard quickly; that's why when I first had a chance I started looking for a wireless device. In fact I just wanted a mouse but this came as a really nice combo that killed two birds with one stone. And a a pretty nice price I must say.
Thinking carefully, it's actually like killing three birds with one stone. This package comes with a battery charger too, included in the same tiny transmitter/receiver of the wireless signal (for both keyboard and mouse). Since I use a MP3 player, the charger comes handy, because it supports not only the AA batteries but also AAA ones.
The mouse is a medium size, not so big but not so small either, stylish looking too. After a long time of constant use it lost part of his painting but I guess that's pretty normal since I've been very rough with it. It has fallen several times and I have even opened it to clean the wheel and the dust inside. Of course, since this is an optical model, there is not much cleaning to do, saves a lot of work and you only need to put it on a dark surface.
The keyboard remains almost the same as new. The keys are soft and the rubberized palm rest is comfortable, allowing me to spend hours typing without feeling any pain in the wrists. Besides, it is very compact, nice looking and has several special keys that can be programed easily to open whatever program you want or work as navigation keys for your preferred browser.
My only complain about this model? You have to buy good and durable batteries if you don't want to be changing them twice a day, but I think that comes with any wireless device; they eventually need recharging.
All in all this has been a really nice purchase and is still working nicely in spite of some minor injuries that the mouse has suffered. If I need to buy a new mouse it doesn't matter, I can still use the keyboard and there would be no problem. Genius Twintouch LuxeMate Pro is a great addition for your PC with an easy installation process and you can personalize it to your needs.
