Super-flat Wireless Keyboard/mouse set

That's my 20 dollar logitech mouse and dongle next to it for a lil comparison. These mice are smaller than the large mouse that comes with the Logitech wireless mouse/key set for 44.95 from walmart.
Anyways I already own the logitech set from walmart for my desktop and needed something for the laptop and couch. I'd rather have a keyboard on my lap than leaning forward to type.(laptops on a wooden scissor stand tv type tray.
Another note is that i have "flat-keys" on my laptop and they don't make that "click" i like to hear when i type. Well have no fear these make a decent click for being flat-keys.

Pros:
-Flat keys!
-Light yet feels very well made. Almost as if it should have the Logitech name on it.
-Sleak glossy black finish around keys. (i call it the Dell glossy black)
-Thin! (demensions below)
-Comes w/ batteries although cheap. 2xAAA for mouse 2xAAA for keyboard

Cons:
-Mouse felt a bit cheap out of the box. Felt a little better after i put the batteries in it.
-Mouse has a kind of out cropped edge where the silver meets the black under bottom. It's kinda sharp and could be a problem if you try to use for long hours of gaming. It extends from front to back on both sides of the mouse.
-Mouse tracks as well as my logitech on my end table w/ out a pad, but failed to track well on my leg. Although i have never used my leg as a mouse pad, but i'm sure some do.
-1000 dpi? not sure if this is good or not, but i don't even know what the dpis of my other two logitech mice are..

Website: medionusa.com

Make: Medion
Model: P81022 (MD 86360)

Demensions:
-Keyboard: ca. 17.3 x 5.8 x 1.1 inch (LxWxH)
-Mouse: ca. 4.0 x 2.4 x 1.3 inch (LxWxH)
-Approx. 17.8 oz for the reciever, mouse and keyboard (without batteries)

Sys reqs: Win 7/Vista/XP



Anyways was a steal for 20 bucks at the local Aldi's Chain. I did a google search for the Make/model and found a couple german sites for Medion and a forum of people trying to find an Aldis near them to pick it up at.

Was much better than purchasing another 45 dollar logitech set with the giant keyboard/mouse for the laptop. We all know how big that set is and especially the wireless receiver that plugs into pc. Most likely it's just for use with a desktop set up.

I may end up leaving my smaller logitech mouse plugged into my laptop for the gaming sessions and just use the medion keyboard.


If anyone needs more info/pics just ask.

hope this helps someone looking for the same thing on the cheap.

cheap enough maybe u could pick it up and hack it into a wired one. If you don't got an extra usb male end laying around most pc shops carry wired usb keyboard for 14 bucks or so.

It would be fun to just try even though it may need some kind of interface device in it if it doesn't already.

Who knows..not me..
