Logitech Wireless Desktop MK250
Advantages: Wireless, cheap, reliable
Disadvantages: not many features
My better half gifted this to me for my birthday. I was going about buying a wireless mouse for ages but never did so he decided to do it for me adding in a wireless keyboard as well. Could not be happier!
In the box you get a manual, USB wireless receiver, mouse and a keyboard. First batteries are already in the keyboard (3x AAA) and mouse (1xAA).
There is a nice sentence phrase written on the box 'Go wireless in seconds' (quite catchy) - first I thought, yeah a cute catch phrase but it actually proved to be true, you just plug in the wireless receiver and your keyboard and mouse are operational, no fuss around installation, no drivers, nothing. What more do you want?
There is not much to say about this keyboard, well it is reliable has a good response, there are no keys that would not work.
It does not have many out-of-the-standard functions. It has some handy functions - they do not have special keys they are situated on F1-F13 keys and you access the function with pressing a blue marked FN button (saves space and keeps it simple). These functions go from keys that are useful in media files (play, pause, sound), frequently used commands (mail, internet, searc, calculator) and one that is extremely handy from the distance - power off. Nothing flashy as I said but a good selection of useful keys.
Other than that the keyboard is pretty much standard.
I'm using it non-stop (I forget to turn it off - it has a button to turn off in the back - useful for saving batteries) for almost two months now and the batteries still hold (I will update the battery lifetime when I get there).
It's a standard mouse - two buttons and a wheel. Buttons work good, I did not have any problems with them, they record every click and do not make double clicks (my previous mouse was doing that sometimes). The mouse has a decent accuracy and a good response but I would not recommend it to hard core gamers (I imagine they have mouses worth much more and with much more buttons anyway).
I am satisfied with this duo. I consider myself to be a more demanding user of computers since I spend a lot of time browsing the net, playing games (for fun, not hard core), use different software... And this two did not fail me in any of the subjects. If you are considering on buying wireless keyboard and mouse I really would recommend this pack considering the price (pssst, I know the price of my gift now ;) £22.30 on Amazon.co.uk.
Summary: Away with all the cables! A cheap and reliable wireless keyboard and mouse!
