Rated 1 out of 5 by Ballista The picture is wrong
I got this bundle because I wanted an affordable keyboard with a standard key layout. I read the only other review for the product, which mentioned that the Shift keys were small, but I looked at the picture and they seemed fine to me. However, the layout of the keyboard I received is much different than the one shown in the picture at the top of the page.
The shift keys, as mentioned in the other review, are about half of the size of normal ones. In the spaces that they normally take up are a redundant '\' and '|' key on the left side, and on the right, a weird one that looks like maybe an accent mark and apostrophe key and does not seem to work. The Enter key is big and takes up two rows, and because of this, the '\' and '|' key is moved down to the next row, placed beside the lower half of the enter key. The numpad is also weird, with the '+' key being half size, and in the place where its lower half usually is, is a redundant '.' key. The numpad '+' is also split into '+' and '=', like the one by Backspace on a normal keyboard.
The multimedia keys across the top are cool, but the "volume up" one is on the left side of the "volume down", which seems backward to me.
Both the mouse and keyboard have USB connections, but come with USB to PS/2 adapters, so I guess that's nice if your computer has PS/2 ports and you don't want to take up USB space.
The mouse is pretty small, even though is doesn't look like it in the product pictures above, and it jumps across the screen at times for no apparent reason.
I have not tried the speakers yet, but they feel flimsy and I'm afraid to even handle them much. They're also smaller than the picture makes them look. Didn't expect them to be great at such a low price of course, but it's just one more thing that makes this package less appealing than it seems at first.
Normally I would just return this and get something else, but I gave the keyboard to my sister, who needed a new one as well and thinks she might be able to live with this.
I got the "Genius KB202" for myself, also from Walmart, and it has a much better key layout, plus it cost less than this.
Rated 4 out of 5 by raelieu Great package deal
Couldn't believe I got all this for the price. Haven't used the speakers yet, but the keyboard and mouse work just fine.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Riahmomma I had to return this item as it was to small for adult fingers. The shift key is smaller than half the size of a normal shift key on a keyboard which caused problems for me while typing. Couldn't use the mouse either as it was to small. I guess you get what you pay for.
Rated 1 out of 5 by LornaP TYERRIBLE value
it did a terrible job meeting any expectations
the mouse was misassembled and did not work at all. . . the keyboard only sometimes works. . .
I have not even bothered trying the speakers since the other two things were a bad bad dealYes, I said I use it every day. . .but it is a three part gift and I have ony been able to usually use the keayboard part of the buy. . . it was a VERY bad buy
.This seemed like it would be a good value but it was not.
