Pros Mouse is the best of all of the ones currently avaibile 10/08. The keyboard keys feel really solid and are quiet when you press them which makes for a great user experience.
Cons Ive had some connectivity issues when restarting my computer. Im not sure if this is due to a setting. Upon restarting the computer, i occasionally get the bios telling me that there is no keyboard connected.
Summary Ive tried all of logitech's and microsofts mice and this one is undeniably the best. Some might be concerned about the mouse's stealth button being clicked on accident, however i have used it for 3 months and have not accidentally hit it once. The mouse fits my hand like a glove and everything from the on the fly adi adjustment to the dual mode scroll wheel works great! The keyboard feels fantastic when you press down on the buttons. The space bar could be slightly quieter(its really not bad...) . The wrist rest feels great on the wrist and the keyboard stand puts the keyboard at the perfect ergonomic angle. The mouse MAY bit on the slightly large side for those with small hands. Ive got medium size hands and if they were larger, the mouse would still fit like a glove. If you can spend $130(10/08) on a keyboard and mouse combo, there is no reason not to go with this deal unless you are looking for something even more ergonomic(Split top keyboard and vertical mouse or other). But with that being said, you will be paying more for something that probably isnt any more ergonomic then what you have here with the cordless wave pro.Correction: ' on fly dpi adjusment'

Updated on Dec 5, 2008Over 2 months have gone by, and ive actually bought another set for work. I have no issues with either set and the few minor quirks that i had earlier are no longer issues.(The startup issue was PC related and not a keyboard issue) I am using one of them with a KVM switch at work. With the push of a buton i am controlling both PCs wirelessly without much of a hiccup or transfer.(its a cheap KVM by the way) . I strongly stand by my 4.5 star rating of this product.
Pros The mouse and keyboard are both highly customizable between programs or globally. Both are very comfortable to use for extended periods of time.
Cons I miss the search engine button that my old MX620 mouse had. However, there is one on the keyboard, so it's still available. Also, for some reason the mouse sensitivity buttons that's there in it's place can only be customized globally.
Summary As a graphic designer this mouse and keyboard have become an essential part of my work-flow. There's more than enough buttons on the keyboard to customize everything I need. Folders and programs can be set to launch with the touch of a button.I should also mention that for those of use with big hands the large mouse is a plus.
The extra mouse buttons can be further customized to do different things in different programs. For example, in Indesign I use the side buttons to zoom in and out, but in Firefox they're used for page forward and back.
Setpoint, the program used to customize the hardware has been great in Vista. I've been using it for over three years and have had no problems with it.
I really don't have much bad to say about this keyboard and mouse. The fact that the mouse sensitivity button can only be programmed globally is a bit puzzling. All the other mouse buttons can be customized between programs, but not these two. Because of this I wouldn't have minded another button or two on the mouse, but it's really not a deal-breaker.

Pros The pluses: the freedom of design and and movement. The larger than normal "delete" key an an immediate response "stand-by" key is a welcomed change from the slow Microsoft keyboard. I've yet to program the quick keys but will do so when needed.
Cons The "Cons"? The key board is missing a "Caps" indication light to show when it's engaged.
Summary I have been waiting to update my connected Microsoft Economical Key board with a wireless product. Knowing the expense with a wireless combo along with the lack of ergonomic design, it was quite the wait. I found this combo at HH GRegg for 79.99. It wasn't a hard decision when it was all put together at a reasonable price Unplugged freedom...priceless!
Pros To install this product could not get any easier. All you have to do is plug in the USB port and go! I personally bought a microsoft wireless 4000 and it would not give you a range beyond 6ft. With the wave pro, you work 33ft away from the computer.
Cons The only problem would be the price. Spending $100 plus for a keyboard and mouse may seem unreasonable. But the price is wort it. Because The mouse and keyboard are luxurious and worth every penny of the money!!
Summary I overall love this product because of the ease of use and comfort of the design. The mouse fits in your hand like a glove, and the keyboard could not be designed more properly for how people type and position there hands. I needed a wieless keyboard and mouse so i could operate my laptop from my couch. I have the laptop connected to my tv. There is no cords what so ever. When they mention that it is wireless, it is truly wireless!! I would recommend it for anyone looking for a wireless keyboard and mouse. The wave pro is a must have!!!
"Nice Keyboard!"on by zen_111
Pros The keyboard is really nice and easy to adapt to and also very comfortable.
Cons The Mouse isn't great it takes a while to get used to because it doesn't have the best precision.
Summary I would recommend this keyboard to anyone who uses a keyboard a lot during the day or at work but you may only want to buy the keyboard on its own because the mouse isn't that great.
