    First impressions of the product was that it does live up to the specifications on the box. I was able to control my living room PC from my bedroom with no problems. The keyboard is lite, silent, and extremely versatile. Unfortunately, the mouse is rather a drawback. Although you can use the mouse in the air, it really takes a ton of getting used to. Even when used to it, it's hard to get it to go where you want the pointer to go. Also, when switching from my mx300 logitec mouse, I was surprised that the gyration mouse is much more sensitive to movement. You would think this would be great, except the mouse is designed to be used both in air and on a desk which gives it a strange feeling when used on the desk. One fine point is that the mouse feels like it's sliding on greased teflon when used on a desk.

    Pro's: Really does reach 25ft or more in range.
    Rechargeable batteries.
    Mouse works in air.
    Mouse very respondant.
    Multimedia keys on keyboard.

    Cons: Useing mouse in air is not for gaming.
    Takes a long time to charge.
    Takes a lot of getting used too.

    Conclusion: Take the plunge, but don't expect to play your favorite games without a mouse pad.

    Verdict: I give it a 8 out of ten
    Let's face it, there's not a lot of really good keyboards and mice on store shelves. I haven't found any I would rate a 10, but I'll keep looking.
