Rated 3 out of 5 by hoop from Mouse good, keyboard no so good Would not recommend: the Function keys are secondary to Multimedia Keys. The multimedia keys are small and the Function (F#) Label is small and is hard to read because it is printed on the keys in dark red against a black background. Function Keys (F#) should have been the primary use of the keys and multimedia functions secondary in application and accessed by using the Fn Key. The Multimedia graphics should be in yellow along with the (Fn) key. Keyboard is small and I personally do not like the new keys design. Too easy to hit wrong key. please return to older design. Also moved the insert button out of normal place. No lights on keyboard to indicate when num lock is on or off....must rehit key to see on screen indicator. Not good design. Mouse is solid, compact and works great!

Rated 3 out of 5 by KenPL from Poor Layout of Function Keys Would not recommend for the fact that the Function keys are secondary to Multimedia Keys. The multimedia keys are small and the Function (F#) Label is small and is hard to read because it is printed on the keys in dark red against a black background. Function Keys (F#) should have been the primary use of the keys and multimedia functions secondary in application and accessed by using the Fn Key. Multi media Key graphic symbols should have been printed above the keys. The Multimedia graphics should be in a light orange or yellow along with the (Fn) key. Package came with no instructions for installation and had to call for tech support to find our the wireless dongle was located inside the mouse battery compartment. Duh! I guess they are lonely in tech support!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Francesc from IBM SK-8835 type vs. Lenovo ultraslim... The Lenovo ultraslim is a good attempt (better than thinkpad compact Bluetooth keyboard), but not good enough for users changing from laptop to office dockstation. The problem is that the layout (position and size of the keys) and ergonomics are not the same. I tried the Lenovo ultraslim, but I went back to my old IBM SK-8835 with more than 10 years. The ergonomics with the old IBM solution is 99% the same to my new T450. The trackpad and space around is a must extended... the numeric keypad is also needed. MY RECOMMENDATION: You just have to copy the old IBM concept and I will buy and promote all around my organization!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by DaveInMN from Repeated Issues, Now Dead Part of US$5000+ purchase, 1 year ago. From outset, seems both keyboard and mouse have connectivity issues - mouse clicks/actions, keystrokes are dropped, or queue up and suddenly come in a torrent. Hangs entire system on ocassion. Burns thru batts at astonishing rate. And, now, keyboard simply stopped dead. Spent last hour digging out ancient Logi wireless kb & mouse, which worked instantly with none of these issues. Too bad, as feel and response of keyboard (as on our Lenovo Ultra) is great - it is simply "gakky".

Rated 1 out of 5 by BobS from Two Glaring Ultraslim Keyboard Shortcomings Two glaring defincies in the design of this keyboard: 1. The Function Key references (e.g., F5) on the face of the keys is in red text on a black background and all but impossible to see (no, I am not color-blind), except in the best of lighted conditions. I had to print labels on my Labelwriter (black on white labels) in order to make this keyboard usable. 2. The Function Keys do not work when you use Terminal Services (e.g., Microsoft Remote Resktop, a.k.a., RDP). I plugged in other keyboards (e.g., Logitech), and had no issues. Lenovo / IBM Tech support were totally baffled by this. I had to abandon my investment in two Ultraslim Keyboards (one at the office and one at home), in favor of Logitech replacements. Needless to say, I am unable to recommend this keyboard / mouse combo.
