    Francois, South Africa. 12 October 2014

    Range is not too bad, mouse tracking is good when using mouse pad. All in all, great value for money.

    Marius, South Africa. 3 March 2015

    Great keyboard and mouse. The transmission range of the mouse is however not as good as the one from the SlimStar 8000 combo.

    Dominic, South Africa. 10 July 2014

    Great price for a great product. Keys are comfy to press, layout of keys is excellent and the mouse works really well too. Range is very good and I'm totally pleased with my purchase. Definitely a bargain buy!

    Marvin, South Africa. 6 January 2016

    Simple, slim-line, quiet keyboard and mouse set. Thinking of replacing the other 2 sets as well.

    Yuvan, South Africa. 2 January 2016

    I haven't found anything that offers better value for money. It's just plug and go. Only issue is that the range is very low if there is no line of sight. My desktop is under my desk and I got disconnect issues however I just got a USB extension from Takealot for R25 and the issue was solved. It is still very much worth it.

    Rohan, South Africa. 20 October 2014

    bought one this weekend, did not have to do anything to set it up with my raspberry pi, just pluged it in and it worked. super great price, but also super great feel for typing (if I ever needed it for that). also the keys are not squashed together like some other keyboards, and the arrow keys have enough space like a normal keyboard does.. so basically, it's great for playing Emulation Station / Retro Pie, controlling xbmc, etc.

    Clinton, South Africa. 6 July 2016

    Great set, great value for money.

    Jeremy, South Africa. 3 December 2014

    It probably works okay as a desktop mouse/keyboard. As a media pc input device not so well (which is why I bought it) as direct line of site between the receiver and mouse/keypad is required for it to work correctly.

    Neeran, South Africa. 6 August 2014

    Excellent product...well worth it!!!

    Richard, South Africa. 24 June 2014

    Very happy with this product. Looks smart and nice price!

    Guido, South Africa. 24 February 2015

    Very good value for money. Prompt service.

    Shirley, South Africa. 15 January 2015

    I think all is good! Ordered for my daughter and have had no complaints! Thanks

    Thabo, South Africa. 24 April 2014

    Have been using the set in the last 30 min must say, very light and soft. For the price it's absolutely great!!!!!

    Ursula, South Africa. 17 February 2015

    It was a good buy. Works very well and the price was right. Thanks

    Ludwig, South Africa. 17 February 2015

    Good wireless Keyboard. Decent mouse. Excellent for the price!

    Nice and compact. It doesn't display the typical issues I've had with wireless keyboards before. (I've had Microsoft keyboards go to sleep and then wake up on the first keypress, which then isn't sent)

    Konrad, South Africa. 26 February 2015

    great value for money if you do not own a wireless keyboard and mouse

    Guy, South Africa. 18 December 2014

    Price and Quality are amazing - worked with Ubuntu 14.10 no hassles.

    Pieter, South Africa. 25 March 2016

    Best value for money wireless keyboard and mouse available - works extremely well.

    Charleston, South Africa. 24 August 2016

    After 1 week of use i am liking the soft-touch feel of the keyboard as well as its compactness. Still adjusting to the laser light of the mouse but all in all a good and affordable addition to my computing experience.

    Debbie, South Africa. 20 July 2016

    For the price it's a great buy. Does what it's supposed to. Works great.

    Matthys, South Africa. 18 January 2017

    Great value for money. The keyboard has a quality feel and feels spacious despite its compact design. The key-layout is that of a plain old keyboard, which is what I wanted. I'm also very happy with the mouse, very responsive.

    Diane, South Africa. 8 December 2016


    Kerrin, South Africa. 19 January 2015

    Easy to use and install. Using it at the office - works well. For the price, you can't go wrong. Will probably order another for home system too.

    Clint Alex, South Africa. 17 October 2014

    Great product,use for my media room, mostly for movies and music. Not used for games or typing. Got mine for a couple of months now.

    Good quality for cash
    Wireless keyboard +volume buttons
    Mouse is good and responsive.
    Keyboard is clean light and spill resistant with dripthrough holes if you spill liquid (Not tested).

    Sensor range is limited though so I can't use sensor at the back of PC.
    Also keyboard has flat keys, not ergonomic for gaming or long typing sessions.

    Overall a great product for my application. If you need a main keyboard+ mouse for typing of gaming this is not ideal.

    Stuart, South Africa. 20 May 2016

    As advertised, great product, bargain for the price, build quality is good, got it working with my Remix Android PC. I usually always buy Logitech for their superior quality but this is just as good for a fraction of the price.

    Adrian, South Africa. 10 March 2015

    Great for everyday use in conjunction with my laptop.
    just leave the small usb plugged in and automatically woks on power up.
    Only use it for in the office, when on the road, keyboard stays in the office and travel just with the mouse.
    perfectly intergrates with all the windows systems.
    no regrets here.

    otis ephraim, South Africa. 8 September 2016

    great value for money

    Rashied, South Africa. 11 November 2014

    Works well

    Sven, South Africa. 28 August 2014

    good value for money

    Mervyn, South Africa. 25 September 2014

    Bought a few for friends and family. really great value for money.

    Daoyi, South Africa. 25 August 2014

    Both work perfectly.

    Steyn, South Africa. 16 January 2015

    Excellent product. Everything's working very nice, the only problem, the keyboard doesn't have lights to see whether caps lock is on or not, but I use it on my laptop so it's not a problem for me

    Sean, South Africa. 18 June 2014

    This product is the best wireless keyboard I have purchased to date. The keyboard itself is so streamlined and the keys are soft to the touch, which is ensures a comfortable typing experience. I would highly recommend this product ahead compared to other more expensive keyboards I have previously purchased.

    Kitta, South Africa. 23 September 2016

    Value for money, great product!!

    Brett, South Africa. 22 September 2014

    Apart from not having the lights for Scroll, Num and Caps Lock, this is a fantastic little Keyboard/Mouse combo! I highly recommend it.

    Craig, South Africa. 12 July 2016

    Really great value for money. This wireless set works really nice, the keys feel good too. The mouse is pretty solid. Well worth it.

    Hermanus, South Africa. 10 June 2016

    Works very well. Easy to install

    Riaan, South Africa. 12 December 2016

    I use it for my media center at home and my young daughter has bashed the mouse around to the point where all the internals are scattered across the floor on multiple occasions. Bit of and pieces of the body of the mouse is missing already. I just keep gluing it shut and it just keeps on working. Very durable and reliable at a great price. I have been using mine since March 2015 and still working fine.

    Andre, South Africa. 18 February 2014

    Wow! Got it within a day of ordering it, thank you for the speedy service!

    Benito Masombuka, South Africa. 10 October 2015

    Good product indeed. I have just placed an order for the 4th time. I've upgraded all the keyboard and mouse into wireless at work. Thanks to Genius!! ????????????

    Cyprian, South Africa. 15 August 2014

    Works proper and was delivered on time!!

    Khorombi, South Africa. 12 June 2014

    Good price for a good product. Slim design. I've been using it for around a week now.
    Just be aware that the keyboard has no on/off switch and it has no indicator lights at all so you won't know if you've pressed the Caps Lock button by mistake or if Num Lock is on or off without actually typing something. Overall though, for that price, I think it's a great product.

    Kgabo, South Africa. 26 August 2014

    Awesome product. Real value for money buy. The slim design is simple yet elegant.

    jacques, South Africa. 24 June 2014

    It works brilliantly and makes life alot easier.

    Tiffany, South Africa. 4 January 2017

    No setup required. very convenient

    Joe, South Africa. 17 March 2016

    I have been very impressed with this product, excellent value for money.
    I definitely recommend it.

    Marnix , South Africa. 19 August 2014


    Lethu, South Africa. 4 August 2014

    Perfect product

    Thabani Thabani, South Africa. 17 November 2014

    this is a perfect keyboard. i use it on my android tablet and it super amazing. everytthing works like pc.

    Rani, South Africa. 5 August 2016

    Very Well priced and works well

    Byron, South Africa. 3 August 2015

    I've been using this set for some time now and I have to say that it is the best investment I have done for my laptop. The range is great, the keyboard feels good when typing or playing games, the mouse is just bliss. To add on, this set has been with me for 8 months now and I haven't changed eithers battery, this is the cherry on top for me.

    Steven, South Africa. 25 April 2015

    great combo.. great for typing and other light work.. not great for wireless gaming if you like using a keyboard for gaming though. I love it. complements my HD TV and gaming computer

    ozayr, South Africa. 5 February 2016

    Great product and works like a charm

    steve, South Africa. 23 September 2014

    excellent quality

    Kenneth, South Africa. 22 September 2016

    bought it a month back it's working effortlessly and loving it.

    Michael, South Africa. 27 October 2014

    This is a very useful package. In fact it is so handy I have two sets - one for my office and one at home. It is a basic but very functional design. Works very well with portable computers.

    Fhima, South Africa. 26 May 2016

    Plug and play
    Perfect size

    Robin, South Africa. 11 August 2016

    good businss, easy processing and collecting

    Francois, South Africa. 21 September 2015

    The keyboard is nice and compact (almost half the width of a normal keyboard) and the mouse stores the USB connector if you want to take it on the go. I'm just concerned about the batteries over time (my previous mouse shut down after a while and wakes up on the first click where this unit stays on permanently).

    Yusuf, South Africa. 2 December 2014

    Awesome product and great value for money.

    OG, South Africa. 10 September 2015

    you get what you pay for. Mine didn't last a year and the mouse was already giving me issues and not working. Not impressed at all.

    Kabelo, South Africa. 8 June 2016

    So far so good, perfect

    Charl, South Africa. 13 January 2017

    Great quality product.
    Good value for your money.

    Malneedi, South Africa. 21 September 2016

    No bad, but quality is poor.

    Dylan, South Africa. 27 September 2016

    Solid gizmo. Very happy with my product.

    Tatenda Kevin, South Africa. 9 July 2015

    Awesome product!

    juan, South Africa. 22 July 2016

    mine only lasted 1 year

    Kathy, South Africa. 21 April 2016

    Had a very good time using this combo until the mouse caved in. Not sure why it stopped working, but I'm guessing it's a cheap price for a reason. Unfortunate, but if you have a good track record for keeping tech in good condition it's the product for you.
    The lack of lights on the keyboard for Caps, Num Lock etc. are frustrating, too, but easy to work around. Biggest complaint after the fragility is the keyboard lacking a power switch - keeps running even when not connected to a device. Have to constantly take the battery out and find somewhere else to stash it.

    Mishka, South Africa. 2 February 2016

    I have been using the set for the past week and I have no issues. It is easy to use as it is plug and play. I like the slim design and light weight. It was a good buy, I am happy with the purchase.

    Jeandre, South Africa. 3 March 2016

    Good mouse and keyboard at a great price. Using it with my media center and it works perfectly. Good range as well. Mouse feels a bit cheap but does what it needs to do.

    James, South Africa. 19 January 2017

    First had to sort out the wifi channel before it worked, but now fine.

    Marleen, South Africa. 20 July 2016

    excellent product, easy to install on computer. very happy!

    Simone, South Africa. 23 July 2016

    Works perfectly and only takes up one usb drive! Brilliant product at a great price.

    Georgios, South Africa. 23 October 2015

    A real value for money choice.

    ALTO., South Africa. 20 December 2016

    Great product. Bought it as a gift for someone who's always working on their computer and they love it. Good range on both the keyboard and mouse. Allows for more free ports on the PC and less tangled wires. Great product once again, thanks takealot.

    vipul, South Africa. 11 September 2015

    excellent stuff

    Nicole, South Africa. 11 January 2017

    10 out of 10

    Sisekelo, South Africa. 7 October 2015

    Quality is not compromised. Easy setup. Works as it should

    Youshen, South Africa. 4 January 2017


    Desireè , South Africa. 25 April 2016

    Definitely great value for money! The receiver works even when the laptop and mouse/keyboard are on different levels on a desk. Comes with the batteries which is a bonus. The keyboard is a perfect size and I love the feel of the keys. The mouse is a little small but it doesn't bother me since I'm used to a small mouse. Great product!

    Cebolenkosi Maxwell, South Africa. 7 July 2016

    Great product. But I wish it had more media keys.

    Adrian, South Africa. 28 April 2016

    Lovely product. Plug and play, keyboard soft touch is nice to use. Ordered on a Wednesday, was promised delivery by Monday, but it arrived on Friday - 3 days early!

    Tyron, South Africa. 21 November 2016

    Over 5 years with it, still the best

    Lethabo, South Africa. 3 October 2016

    its a great product no problems as yet...

    Wayne, South Africa. 28 December 2016

    works when it wants too . Have to reboot my laptop to make it work . loses blue tooth signal. very disappointed . expect a refund.
