What comes in this deskset?
Ideal for working on the go, the Maplin Pro mini deskset has a compact mini keyboard and a separate mouse. Get a reliable 2.4 GHz connection with a range of up to 10 meters from the receiver. Both devices run off the same receiver, so you only need use one USB port. It also comes with a USB extender cable to help get the receiver in the best possible spot.

What advantages does this keyboard have?
Work anywhere with this mini wireless keyboard. With low-profile scissor keys, this is a comfortable keypad with keys that make very little sound. With a standard layout, all the buttons are exactly where you want them. It weighs just 265g, so you can pick it up and take it anywhere with you. The keyboard is powered by two AAA batteries (included), and has a power saving mode to extend the battery life.

What features does the keyboard have?
With 12 multimedia keys, you can control your compatible media and internet functions from your keyboard.

What mouse is included?
The precise V-Track Mouse is perfect for when you need the extra control. This three-button mouse has a scroll wheel, and is designed to be comfortable for right-handed users. The mouse is powered by one AA battery (included) and has a storage section for the Nano receiver.

What is V-Track?
There’s no need for a mousepad with V-track. You can use your mouse on marble, in bed, on fur textiles or even on even dusty glass with no problems. It works by using a tiny lens hole and short light beam, which goes deep into the detail of any surface to create a high-contrast picture. This gives you a mouse with incredibly accurate tracking on almost any surface.

What is this deskset compatible with?
The deskset is compatible with Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8. With its plug and play connectivity, just plug the USB receiver in and start writing – it’s that easy. The Nano USB receiver is so small you can just leave it in the computer and forget about it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Good. Set-up not Intuitive. No Documentation. I assumed this was not working and that I had not been given the Nano USB - not knowing what it would look like from the box. I came to this product page in the hope it would offer a solution. It does! The picture when magnified shows that the Nano USB is the red section fixed into the extender USB. I pulled it out with force and lo and behold it clearly fits the description and is a standard USB dongle. Insert it into standard USB port and away you go. The mouse and keyboard work perfectly and are both good and comfortable to use. Why doesn't the box or a small leaflet explain the set-up? It's simple enough. Caps Lock and Num Lock indicators would be helpful as mentioned elsewhere. All in all very pleased.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good set but needs driver I bought this set a few weeks ago and I'm very pleased with it but as has been asked in the FAQ section I couldn't get the back slash and pipe key to work; it's the one just right of the AltGr key. These are important if you do anything like techie on a computer. Whilst I haven't got mine to work and think there needs to be some kind of driver or keyboard layout inf file for these to work I do have a work around. If you press AltGr+# you will get \ and if you press AltGr+Shift+# you will get | Hope this helps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value kit I bought this about a month ago now and I really can't fault it. It's range is good (both), it responds fast, and the mouse is real tidy. It works on almost any surface. Couch, floor, my lap etc. Well recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Quality, Good Value Keyboard: Small and thin with thin buttons, this does not have LED's for the caps lock but I would say it's to save on battery power. Nice and simple to use. Mouse: Fits and feel really nice in my hand, really responsive and quick you only need to double click the left mouse button as shown on the "NUM Lock" to activate it and I would say this is good to save on battery. Overall: For £24.99 for both keyboard and mouse I would say this is a great purchase, if you want something more go ahead but if you want something that does the job and feels really good on the hands and fingertips then go ahead, even I would say £24.99 is not a great dent in the bank account even if you personally don't like the product. It's always good to use Duracell they last longer so keep a spare few around especially for a battery powered keyboard! or just buy rechargeable batteries!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth it. I bought one yesterday, got it home and it did not work. Keyboard neither mouse. Popped in and got a replacement minutes ago, still doesn't work. Coming back for a refund tomorrow :)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unimpressed Keyboard has no caps lock or number lock indicator so you don't know if they are on, useless for passwords. The V mouse is supposed to work on any surface but in reality it is laggy and you have to often press the left mouse button to activate it. Not worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really useful kit! Both items worked first time straight out of the box on my Windows 10 laptop. Mouse needs a left click to get it to wake up from battery-saving sleep mode, more convenient than tiny switch! Quite nice feel to keyboard.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just the right size I bought this keyboard and mouse set to use with my laptop computer. The keyboard is exactly the size I need, and as I don't use a numeric keypad the absence of one on this keyboard is no problem.

Our mouse appears to have stopped working, is there any way of re-pairing this to the receiver?

Asked by: Steve
No, unfortunately not. If this mouse has stopped working the usual cause of this would be that the batteries have run flat.

How do you access the fwd slash key with a vertical line above it next to AltGr key, I need the straight line for a Linux command but can't get it to work. Presumably a different keyboard layout selection, I've tried all the UK selections but none worked.

Asked by: peejay
Unfortunately, we are unable to advise anything more than this would be set up in keyboard layout.
