I am looking for a decent keyboard and mouse combo for work and found this.
No the cheapest but still a good price.
I would like to post it and wondering if anyone can give me some feedback on it as well?

Is this a forum post, question? Link to the item, not a screenshot.
Good price. This combination is highly recommended by some of my work colleagues.
For someone that used to high end mechanical keyboard. The input lag is noticeable.
Not for gaming for sure .
This is a great keyboard. I have 2 - 1 for office and the other for home use. Buy. You won't regret.
Seconded. Also have at work at home (software developer), and has helped the RSI and pain in my forearms heaps. Won't go back to traditional kb or mouse.
Me too. I have at home and several workplaces over the years. Wouldn't ever go back to using a traditional setup.
Both my colleague and I have the same left click issue w/ the mouse.
So really it's OK when it works.
I wouldn't buy another.
Keyboard is good but the mouse is a bit weird. I've been using this combo for ~4 years.
Thank you everyone. Bought! 5 left.
I use this at work, if you've not used an ergonomic keyboard it's an adjustment to get used to, and you'll either love it or hate it.
The wrist rest on the keyboard can mark easily though, from the oils on your skin.
I'm using this for 8 years, still great. at first wanted to ditch the mouse but it's actually very good.
Been using this for many years, the mouse start getting a bit dodgy, doesn’t detect every second click, anyone has similar issue? does it comes with lifetime warranty? will Microsoft fix/replace at no charge?
Three year warranty I think.
edit: wrong comment
Same issue with the mouse recently, not detecting clicks. I took the batteries out and gave it a good clean (sprayed window cleaner all over it).
Not saying what i did is ideal.. but there must have been some dirt on the button switches because it works well now.
mind to share how you clean it? I dont think you can take the front part apart to clean underneath the clicking part right?
I squirted with a spray bottle under the buttons.. actuated them a bunch.. paper towel dry, then left over night. Batteries back in the next morning and it's been fine now for 6 months. 🤞
I did like this keyboard (mouse not so much)…. Until I accidentally left the USB receiver on my laptop and it cracked in half in the laptop bag. It's now a brick as the receiver is hardcoded to the keyboard and can't be replaced. Wish it was like Logitech's unifying one :(
So don't let that happen to you! :)
Great keyboard whilst it lasted for me.
I've used this keyboard before - for some reason I couldn't adapt to it even though I grew up learning to touch type on a similar split keyboard but I guess I've developed bad habits. It was also really bulky to keep moving around but not an issue if you have a fixed desk.
Thanks Op. I was literally talking to my manager today on the process of Ergonomic Assessment who told me to get a certificate from the GP and then they can organise assessment to get a suitable keyboard and mouse…
couldn't be bothered after looking at this and bought a set… cheers
Depending on your employer, you may be missing out on a real gem there. I had one of these done before and ended up with a really great Evoluent compact wireless keyboard and vertical mouse. The vertical mouse I ended up not using despite it being well built with loads of buttons because it was just too much of a chore to do Powerpoint slides in, and ended up buying a Logitech MX Ergo (trackball) instead. The keyboard however is great (even though the layout was a little odd at first) as it seems to have the perfect angle and resistance despite being so small and portable.
Got delivered today… will start using when I'm back on shift and see how I go
No the cheapest but still a good price.
Not too sure about this being a good price. Was $39 after cashback in 2014. :-P
That was likely the keyboard only. My time machine is broken, otherwise I would buy one to confirm.
EDIT: apologies, the comment is specific it is the set. My glasses must be broken too.
I’m not sure you can buy the keyboard seperate from the mouse. I know you can buy the mouse separately though!
It was the full set. Got mine at the time. Used heavily for 2 years and started acting weird. Went back to Officeworks. They did a swap and it refreshed the warranty as well.
Please note, mouse is not made for left handed people. I've this, and it's wonderful once you adapt to it, has slight learning curve based on habits.
After doing some research to help with my wrist pain, I decided to go and try this keyboard.
I can tell that it definitely helped me and would definitely recommend! I work in IT and spend 8h a day on a computer so better have a good keyboard!
The mouse on the other hand is nice but not as good as a logitech mx master.
I am the same use this keyboard with the mx master , has made a big difference to me too
Maybe get a $500 keyboard, those wrists are precious!
Kinesis Advantage2 QD Ergonomic Keyboard for Dvorak Typists (KB600QD)
I looked at it but reviews were not that good.
You'll definitely need eneloops. These things are battery hungry.
Former owner of this set, just a heads up to buyers the F1 - F12 keys are much smaller than their slots. So what has a tendency to happen is that the key will get stuck down under the slot. That should be the first thing you check when odd inputs occur.
