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.

Phillip, South Africa. 10 July 2017

I really love using this works, feels good, great quality :D

Jean-Pierre, South Africa. 26 June 2017

Great product for a great price

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.

Graeme, South Africa. 29 May 2017

Great value for money. Works just as it should

Neeran, South Africa. 6 August 2014

Excellent product...well worth it!!!

Inet, South Africa. 7 September 2017

I worked with one for a short while and then had to exchange it. After exchange the new one worked well, but now less than a year later the keys are getting stuck or keys being typed doesn't work. Dissapointed.

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

Christo, South Africa. 3 August 2017

Good product.

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!!!!!

Thaheer, South Africa. 13 August 2017

Light. Slim. picks up on Windows and Android TV. Worth the buy.

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)

Kev, South Africa. 27 July 2017

keyboard battery doesn't last long and the last on the keyboard for the NumLock and scroll lock don't really serve much purpose but drain the battery. The Logitech Mk220 wireless keyboard and mouse I use at work. Much better and more robust. Maybe if the keyboard had on off switch it might last longer like the mouse.

Konrad, South Africa. 26 February 2015

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

Jacques, South Africa. 31 May 2017

This is a very good keyboard and the mouse is on par

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.

Joe, South Africa. 27 August 2017

Not a bad at all, everything still works and works well after a few weeks of daily use.

nicki, South Africa. 7 February 2017

works as expected

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

Pieter, South Africa. 20 April 2017

This is a good, simple desktop combo which has no wireless troubles at all. The mouse is fairly small and. I bought it for dedicated media editing use for which it's probably not ideal, ut did the job for about 2 months, after which the keyboard stopped working dead. I had to return it after thorough troubleshooting. It was completely undamaged and taken care of but still stopped working abruptly. I'm hoping this is a once off issue since this is a fairly good quality combo for an excellent price.

Charles, South Africa. 6 February 2017

Works great on my Smart TV

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.

Nadine, South Africa. 13 March 2017

Keyboard stopped working after two days of use :/

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.

Johann, South Africa. 4 July 2017

I've bought many of these for my team over the years. A great slim keyboard and excellent value for money. The keyboard's keys start to wear out after only 2 years of intensive typing though, but still my preferred keyboard+mouse combo.

Michelle, South Africa. 20 March 2017

Works perfectly.

Chaldon Pretorius, South Africa. 21 August 2017

Worst piece of equipment I have ever bought. The keyboard often has issues with frozen key presses, so it invokes Windows shortcuts instead of typing what I'd want it to type out. Won't be buying any products from this company again.

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

Etienne, South Africa. 23 February 2017

One of the better keyboards I have used. Keys are quiet and feel good when typing. Mouse is ok.

Yashik Singh, South Africa. 19 April 2017

Easy to operate
Plug and play
Going nearly two years and running strong
Batteries last a long time and item is really reliable . At this price it's probably the greatest value for money entry level keyboard and mouse combo one could purchase .

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.

Szymon, South Africa. 13 February 2017

Happy with purchase. Products feel solid, super light too. Even came with their own batteries.

jacques, South Africa. 24 June 2014

It works brilliantly and makes life alot easier.

Sarah, South Africa. 5 June 2017

Good, inexpensive wireless keyboard and mouse. Went for it for price and didn't want anything bulky and it has been doing the job well for months.

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

Nele, South Africa. 6 February 2017

Very good, no complaints

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

Frano, South Africa. 6 July 2017

Compact keyboard with a lovely, soft and quiet keys. The mouse is a tad small (and I don't have the biggest hands), which is why I prefer the Microsoft Wireless 3000-set's mouse which is heavier and feels solid. Unlike the MS-set however, the Genius's keyboard is smaller, lighter and thinner. Set comes with 1x AA and 1x AAA batteries, although I have a sneaky suspicion that the mouse is going to chew through many batteries in it's life. It does not seem to power down when not in use, instead offering and on/off switch.

ozayr, South Africa. 5 February 2016

Great product and works like a charm

steve, South Africa. 23 September 2014

excellent quality

Allan, South Africa. 9 June 2017

Great Value for money, worked as soon as the receiver was plugged in. Keyboard feel is good. Have to see how long the battery lasts. Will fit Duracell batteries when the factory supplied batteries eventually go flat.

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.

Rishad, South Africa. 4 February 2017

Great set. works excellent for me. bought this to use on my smart tv and very happy with the overall performance of this set.

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.

Ryan, South Africa. 21 August 2017

Nice slim keyboard, keys have a nice soft feel to them so it's perfect for work. Nice that it comes with batteries as well.

Vira, South Africa. 13 March 2017

I type for a living, all day every day. At least 1000 full A4 pages a month. Being an arthritis sufferer, I've tried many different keyboards and own 6 of them, including the expensive ergonomic and comfort keyboards. This is the only one that doesn't cause pain in my hands. Its smooth, the keys require very light pressure, and it works like a dream. I love it! I'm about to order a spare, just in case I cant find another in future. I've also never had any problem with the mouse, it works perfectly.

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.

Tanya, South Africa. 29 July 2017

Works perfectly.

Malneedi, South Africa. 21 September 2016

No bad, but quality is poor.

Miguel, South Africa. 28 August 2017

Does what it should, nothing more, nothing less.

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.

Hengie, South Africa. 27 January 2017

Love this! The mouse does not need line of sight and they can both work comfortably from 3 metres away. So convenient and well worth the price

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.

Thereasa, South Africa. 10 February 2017

keyboard great but mouse not great

Johann, South Africa. 12 April 2017

Product lives up to expectation

Bram, South Africa. 13 March 2017

Good quality and price

James, South Africa. 19 January 2017

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

Theresa, South Africa. 1 February 2017

Really comfortable keyboard very happy with my purchase but it's early days yet

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.

Dumisani, South Africa. 12 June 2017

Definitely loving it. Especially the quietness of the keyboard's keys.

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.

Francois, South Africa. 8 February 2017

Best product for computer users ever.

vipul, South Africa. 11 September 2015

excellent stuff

Nicole, South Africa. 11 January 2017

10 out of 10

Aluwani, South Africa. 3 February 2017

Very affordable nice performance

Sisekelo, South Africa. 7 October 2015

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

Cameron, South Africa. 17 July 2017


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!

Gary, South Africa. 1 February 2017

really great product, especially for the price

Mboniseni, South Africa. 23 May 2017

genius has improved over the years, this is my third keyboard with them, and can tell u there is so much improvement

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!

Antoinette, South Africa. 24 January 2017

No regrets with this product. Keyboard & mouse arrived in perfect condition, keys are smooth and soft to the touch, mouse range is good. Exactly all I was looking for

Zander, South Africa. 8 February 2017

Very nice set and the range is actually decent (about 5 m).

The keyboard flexes too much for my liking but for the price it is to be expected. Another issue with the keyboard is that it does not have any media controls or indication lights for the caps lock and num lock buttons.

Overall I am very happy with my purchase, the value for money is difficult to beat.

Faizee, South Africa. 25 August 2017

Love this Product. Highly recommended. Very comfortable to use.

Tyron, South Africa. 21 November 2016

Over 5 years with it, still the best

Alexander, South Africa. 31 March 2017

My mouse and keyboard works without direct line of sight, not sure what the reviewers were on abou. possibly check the batteries or change them when you get the product

Quality is okay Not te best but not the worst

Sean, South Africa. 11 April 2017


Lethabo, South Africa. 3 October 2016

its a great product no problems as yet...

TT, South Africa. 14 July 2017

In love with the combo, no interference at all, no delay, low battery usage. Love it!

not uninteruptlable, South Africa. 13 May 2017

its completely a lie easy to interrupt signals but it works fine

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.

anesh, South Africa. 15 February 2017

works well on computer and android devices with otg support.

Walter, South Africa. 1 August 2017

The combo mouse & keyboard working perfectly. It doesn't cost too much on battery, because each require one battery to work.

Wade, South Africa. 20 April 2017

I have had three of these they are great for the price, durable and a pleasure to use. Only thing is, do NOT lose the USB reciever that comes along with it, or it becomes useless. Had this happen three times for various reasons.

Maarten, South Africa. 25 April 2017

Great product
