- Good build quality
- Responsive and accurate

- Not sure if I like the sunken in F keys
- No gap between the normal keys and the Insert/Home/Delete/End keys

Wireless Tech Works Great, Compact Keyboard. Worth It.

Bruce, South Africa. 6 July 2012

Love it. Much better than I was expecting. Quality is great and it goes nicely with my home theatre pc in the lounge. Only issue is the glossy black plastic picks up fingerprints and dust like crazy. Mouse does feel a bit cheap.

However - for the price - this is a great product. I may even get another one for another pc I have.

Dylan, South Africa. 17 April 2012

Best wireless keyboard and mouse I've ever owned. Better than any Logitech wireless desktops I've tried. Well worth it! But don't expect any frills like key back-lighting.

Susan, South Africa. 12 November 2014

Serves its purpose gracefully.

Mauricio, South Africa. 21 November 2011

It's a no-nonsense bare-bone little wireless desktop.
Works perfectly, no issues - using it as a remote for my media centre - at a distance of +/- 2.5m.
Unless ergonomics is a concern, there is absolutely no reason to spend any more money on anything fancier.

Marilize, South Africa. 30 May 2013

I'm very impressed with this set. It was a pleasure to install - plug and play with batteries included. I'm now typing this from my bed, two meters from my screen. Love it and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a starter wireless kit that's real value for money.

Vivekanand, South Africa. 1 September 2014

Good product. Works perfectly and getting good battery life on it too.

Natsai, South Africa. 21 July 2014

i enjoy using this - and batteries are included which was a bonus.

Chantal, South Africa. 19 July 2016

I love my investment! What a dream it is not having wires that is in the way. Love the look and feel. A good buy.

Callen, South Africa. 1 February 2017

Great keyboard. Been using mine for more than 3 years.

Mihajlo, South Africa. 27 May 2015

4* only because the keys feel a bit flimsy - there is a bit of sideways movement. From the competitive price/performance aspect even in comparison with products at higher price point, it's a 5* product.

Siyanda, South Africa. 10 February 2017

Good gadget at a reasonable price. Feels flimsy though. But it does the job well. I lost the receiver and i had to kiss it goodbye :(

Muhammad, South Africa. 13 December 2013

I just got mine

The keys have less noise when you type, and overall it just was a great buy

it is much compact, but not as compact as i thought and the picture predicted

But i would still say, VALUE for Money


Denny, South Africa. 26 July 2015

Great service from Takealot. Got my product a day before the actual delivery date.

As for the desktop set, it's a fantastic product.
Has quite a few dedicated keys for the calculator and media functions.
Overall, quality product from Microsoft, without the huge price tag.

I'm very satisfied with it.

Surobinda, South Africa. 13 February 2015

Let me first declare that if you judge capability of Fish by judging it's tree climbing capability then it will be injustice.

I was looking for a decent wireless keyboard for my regular use with MacBook Air. This is the one I found with Mac compatibility (officially written in back side of box). Also price is decent, order with Takealot and boom got it with in 2 days after placing the order.

My experience with this keyboard is fine, no issues and really comfortable. However I always forget to switch off the mouse physical button after use.

If you are looking for a decent Mouse + keyboard combo, go for it.

Jacques, South Africa. 26 June 2016

This product works well as an entry-level desktop set.
