In the 10 years I have been using Amazon, this is the first feedback I have left. I am somebody who does not have much money and therefore everything I buy has to be well researched to ensure I am getting a product that will last. If I end up buying something that doesn't work, is shoddy or breaks within a short period of time, I can not afford to replace the item. Living in france means the cost to me to post this item back to the seller is prohibitive.
I bought this item (wireless microsoft keyboard and mouse) in 2011. After just over a year (13 months) The USB dongle has stopped functioning with normal use. I do not play games or use the mouse/keyboard heavily. After 13 months of normal use it no longer works. Unfortunately I cannot replace the USB, I have to replace the whole thing again.
I have contacted the seller several times before leaving feedback and to date (2013) Have heard absolutely nothing. If like me, you can not afford to keep replacing things that you expect to work, please don't make the mistake I made and buy this item, save your money and look elsewhere. If you love a company that couldn't care less about you once they've taken your money, then go ahead, buy it.
