What comes in this deskset?
Practical and stylish for the office or home, your Maplin Pro deskset comes with a full-sized keyboard and 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. The kit comes with a USB extender cable so you can get the receiver in the best possible spot.

What advantages does this keyboard have?
Free your keyboard with this full-sized wireless keyboard. With low-profile scissor keys, this is a comfortable keypad with keys that make very little sound. With a standard layout and a full-sized number pad, all the buttons are exactly where you want them. 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. The unique mouse function on the numerical keypad allows you to use the keyboard as a wireless mouse as well.

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 can be used by right and left-handed users. The mouse is powered by one AA battery (included).

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 that 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, you just need to 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 2 out of 5 by from Great keyboard, bad mouse Bought this as a replacement for an old logitech wireless set. The keyboard is fantastic - quiet & basic, but thats what I want...but the mouse has given me no-end of trouble from the get-go. At first the receiver wouldn't recognise it...then it eventually did after an hour of playing around. Then it worked fine for a couple of days, but ever since then it skips around or refuses to move altogether. I know it sleeps after a certain period of inactivity and you should click the buttons to wake it, but its like it sleeps for a split second then wakes again...scrolling and highlighting pages is a nightmare - changed the batteries to make sure. Would have taken it back, but I lost the receipt :(

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good Keyboard, not so good mouse Nice keyboard with good features, a nice size with easy to use and quiet keys, the mouse features on the number pad are proving useful too ... mainly because the mouse is bit of a let down .. sleeps too fast, very slow to wake up, in fact hasn't a couple of times and had to restart PC, it's also not great with the tracking and I find I have to move it around far to much ..honestly wish I'd just bought the keyboard.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor performance I purchased 2 of these units, both show the same problems. Drop characters on keyboard input and mouse 'judder'.

How do I get the euro symbol on the keyboard? I thought it would be the Alt Gr key and the No. 4 key together but it's not working

Asked by: TJensen21
Did you try CTRL+Alt+4, that's the standard way to make the Euro symbol appear in Windows, although as mentioned, Alt+0128 also works

Does this have a Caps Lock indicator light (and Scroll Lock and Num Lock)? This is must-have for me as on my present scrabble-tile keyboard I keep hitting CPS LOCK WHEN i'M GOING FOR "a".

Asked by: pleriche
I agree bought this today, love it ! really nice to use but no Caps Lock etc light ! spoilt it for me taking it back for a refund ! I'm so disappointed. Personally for me, I felt that its a perfect size keyboard, the keys feel really nice under my fingers, better than any other I tried in the shop, unfortunately the keyboard was not connected so I did not notice that it was missing a basic function as no Caps Lock / Scroll Lock / Numbers Lock indicator lights

Where can I find out what the function keys do and how to use them?

Asked by: Colin
the function of the keys are shown on the key its self, the functions can be activated usually by holding down the Function or Fn key and then pressing the function that you want to use.
