Rated 2 out of 5Â by Phacelia stuck keys - email button not working
I got the wireless keyboard and mouse for my HP Pavilion HPE h8. I didn't know why I had to re-type so much until I read the other reviews. The email button on the left side does not work. I can not find out how it might be fixed. The mouse is slow and inaccurate selecting. I need to back up and go back and forth to get the right location.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by drminoregon Product works poorly with HP Pavillons
I bought the classic wireless classic desktop with my new HP Pavillon P7-1232. I thought I would remove wires from my desk. It just doesn't work well. The simple pictoral setup instructions that come with the computer are explicitly clear that wired mouse/keyboards shoulld be connected to the rear usb ports, but the adaptor for wireless keyboard/mouse should go in front usb slots. This is very clear. It doesn't work at all. I contacted HP - they said to put the wireless adaptor in the rear usb ports. When I do this the mouse works fair, but the keyboard poorly. If I repeated hit a key on the keyboard it eventually recognizes it - but it is horrendous. The keyboard is entirely unusable - although I admit it occasionally recognizes a letter now and then. Not usable by anyone who touch types. The mouse seems to learn its surface and stop responding to it - like it gets bored with the surface. I use a mouse pad and it works for a while - then stops. If I change mouse pads or go directly to desk it starts working again - then stops, until I change the surface underneath the mouse again. It seems they have built some type of artificial intelligence into the mouse driver to force me to change moused pads or desk top on a regular basis - and the change frequency is too short! Save yourself the frustration - I don't recommend this product at all.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by thomasb176 A flat low profile keyboard to fit under desk.
The keyboard and mouse were perfect for my needs. BUT, because the keyboard and mouse are on an under desk drawer or maybe because the USB dongle is very low profile sometimes the input (whether keystroke or mouse click) doesn't register causing me to hit the key again or click the mouse again and sometimes it is like the dongle isn't plugged in. I think if the unit was used ON the top of the desk and my laptop was closer (I use a very large monitor plugged into the HDMI on my laptop so my laptop is about three feet away) I think I wouldn't have this problem.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by RacyBiscuit Love the mouse; hate the keyboard
I had gotten home, unpacked the keyboard and mouse, and immediately hooked them up to my computer. The mouse and keyboard was wonderful to me at the start, but as soon as I tried to play a game I have downloaded on my computer, I realized that i would never be able to play it with this keyboard. About half the keys I tap are not registered, making doing anything, including playing games, a pain. I do, however, love the mouse. I have had almost no problems thus far, and the ones that I have had are simply fixed by waiting a few moments. Overall, I would never suggest this to my friends, but I did get one thing good out of this terrible deal - A mouse I love.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by murphy45 Very pleased with this product
Easy to install, like the size of the mouse, like the position of the calculator feature on keyboard, like the fact that I got rid of two more cords, and price of this combo set was very reasonable.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Bill0873 Frustrating
I bought this at Wal-Mart -- I wanted to give the wireless thing a try; my office has one (another brand) that I have enjoyed a lot.
I have been very disappointed and continue to grow increasingly frustrated. As I type, letters are missing, key strokes are dropped, and I have to back up constantly to fix errors. I frequently need to re-enter passwords and cannot write smoothly as I am accustomed to doing. Very frustrating.
