Nice keyboard. Keys have a nice solid feel to them. Has a zoom feature which I did not load the software for. It just uses extra memory and it is a feature I personally do not need. I would definitely recomend this keyboard without reservation, if you are looking for a reasonably priced wired KB.

The mouse works just fine for a two button and scroll wheel mouse. You cannot beat the price, and it matches perfectly our white netbook. I rated value, quality and performance as fives, based on the one week we have had it. I gave it a three for features as it is your basic optical mouse and not a gaming mouse with multiple settings and features. Anyone in need of a basic, good quality, yet cheaply priced optical mouse, this is what you should get.

No this mouse doesn't have a hand warmer or blood pressure sensors, but it does what it needs to do very well: point and click.

Good value for the money. Far superior to LabTec track ball mouse purchased previously. Plugged it in and began using immediately with no issues!

This is a simple scroll-wheel wired mouse but it is the best one I have ever used. I glides easily and the cursor does not jump around. It is much better than the last Microsoft model I bought (and wore out the left button micro switch).

Very good value product. Works great on my Fedora 6 system with Intel motherboard. The only issue, as others have mentioned, is it seems to be over-sensitive and ''jump around'' sometimes. I can see that this could be irritating. The system I have this mouse installed is an occasional-use system so I personally am not too upset about this. For the price and overall quality I feel this mouse is an excellent value.

I've been using one of these for a few years (purchased locally) and recently ordered one from Tiger for a second computer. I tend to stick with the tools that work for me and this mouse is one of them. My low rating of 4 for performance is for what Computerlion already stated about the pointer occasionally jumping around or migrating on its own. Other than that, it's the best mouse I've owned.

For the price this is a great optical mouse! It is a really light mouse and fairly small. The precision is not superb (the reason for a 4 instead of a 5). When using it on a solid surface it occasionally jumps around. Overall it's a great mouse!

This good ole standard optical used to sell for $25.00 and was a value then. Overall, comfort is good, tracking is precise and durability is unmatched. For $10.00 you will get several years' use from it.

Great feel and rolls nice. This is a great starter for non-optical mice users. I have used for about a year and just love it!! Never having to clean a mouse ball is just the greatest. Great button action and it fits in your palm perfect.
