Let me take this step by step for a moment. The Wireless mouse! Here we have a mouse that doesn't offer a lot in features, but this set isn't designed for gaming or super speedy browsing. This mouse offers enough functionality to get by easily with the right and left clicks and scroll wheel use, but I really missed my "page back" button, and that's all I can really say bad about the mouse. The on the fly DPI switching, its tracking, and the multitude of surfaces I tested on (even glass) the mouse had no issues doing its job. Part of that is aided by the free gift, and while it is free, being part of the total package is a plus in either instance. Not only is it a great mouse surface, the ability for it to clean the screen and act as a pad for the screen in transit makes it that much more to appreciate about it. If it does get a little funky, just run it under the sink and rinse it out, dry it out, and put it back into use.
The wireless keyboard is easy to use and type on. Its low profile makes it comfortable to use on your lap, and its smaller size lends well to this, too. Comparing to my other wireless solution, this keyboard in the Briskie is really nice for the amount of money you are spending here. The rubber membrane keys are dead silent, and keystrokes are only verified by the tactile feel of the switch bottoming out or the appearance of them on the screen. The feel and size of the keys are very much like those on my laptop, so in the transition over to the Briskie, laptop users should feel right at home with this. Lastly, and this is a personal thing, I like to not have to mess around with keys listed under the function or shift keys. I like that Enermax delivered a full set of keys that allow me to spend more time using it than studying the hidden key layout. I know manufacturers don't want me to say that you should take their products apart, but accidents do happen, especially to keyboards. The engineering and design of this spill resistant system isn't something I would expect at such a low cost, nor would I have expected it to be so easy.
Considering my first purchase was based on what one was cheapest at the time, and just satisfying my need to cover a distance without a cable, my $20 investment got me tons of frustration and disappointments. The number pad and arrow keys were all hidden, and the gesture style mouse pad on it was complete garbage. What Enermax has done for me personally is not only showing me that if I had waited I would have found a much better solution, but they also reaffirmed the notion that you don't have to pay through your teeth to get nine out of the ten things on your personal checklist.
For me the mouse lacking the back button is a bit of a downer, having a setup that delivers everything else you could want, including portability, the listing at Amazon.com of $21.75 is worth every bit of that asking price. For what I just bought similarly priced, the Briskie Wireless keyboard, mouse, and free gift put my old one to shame and renewed my use in wireless systems.
