Doesn't work - don't waste your money, buy something else
I wish id seen the other reviews before buying not one but two of these keyboards. The first one worked for quite a while with no problem, but then the keys started lagging. Initially i thought it was just getting old so went and talked to a sales person in JBHIFI who thought it was my computer speed which was not right as my laptop keyboard works fine.
I bought a new one then thought it might be that i needed new batteries. So here i am with my second keyboard now starting to lag again. Bought new batteries, put them in and everything seems fine and then it starts again just days after putting in new batteries. There are times where it works perfectly fine for a few days then it starts lagging again. The mouse is completely fine.
Purchased at JB Hi-Fi.
HP Keyboard and mouse
what a useless piece of crap, haft of the letters do not work 80 % of the time. Keep your money for something usefull. the mouse works but not the key board
First one failed almost immediately. Returned to Officeworks for replacement. Second unit same. Keys not functioning randomly. So frustrating to work with. Going back too. Won't buy HP accessories ever again.
This keyboard is 3 months old and is crap. even writing this review has taken 4 times longer towrite because o0f this rubbish keybo0ard . When I fi8rst joined I meant Zane to be my user namebut sometimes it woOnt allow the n to be used, so Zae it is. Worst thing is I ca't find the receipt so no retur . Save your money buy another brand.
I left some of the misprints in to showhow bad it is

Great little combo
Love this keyboard and mouse combo. Works really well for me when I work from home on my laptop. The mouse is very comfortable to use and the keyboard is nice and smooth. Can’t go wrong with HP products, they never disappoint.
Purchased in at Officeworks for $40.
Does the trick!
So far so good! Easy to set up and worked right away. I have no issue with the connectivity of the mouseor the keyboard, and everything functions well. Its obviously not the most ergonomic or highest quality but its good value for the money I spent.
Purchased in at Officeworks for $28.
This is my first review ever
I had this keyboard for a week. Initially I thought it was my new pc with the lagging and at times, can't type. I have to keep pressing the hidden sync button under the keyboard for it to transmit efficiently but it last a minute or so. Mouse is not too bad but I am planning to throw this in the bin as it's not worth passing on such a frustrating piece of hardware. Definitely should've paid a little more. This is a lemon.
Purchased in for $30.
This keyboard and mouse combo is great value for money. It works very well and we havr had no issues with it. Very happy with this product and highly recommend.
Purchased in at Officeworks Physical store.
The reviewer stated that an incentive was offered for this review
I had to give this one start to submit a review, I only had this on my desk for 2 hours, before I gave up trying to make the keyboard work properly - changing batteries, rebooting, re connecting, etc all failed to make it work properly. Mouse is fine the the keyboard is rubbish - and apparently lots of others agree (see reviews here).

Keyboard feels clunky
I avoided non-name keyboards because I wanted a quality one, but this HP has a cheap, noisy/clunky action. There are no instructions for the extra keys, so will have to work it out myself. Do yourself a favour and either buy another brand or spend more - I will be relegating this one to the "spares" cupboard.
Don't waste your money!!
Same problem!! Mouse works fine, keyboard cuts out every 30 secs or so. HP should recall these as defective hardware and the retailers should take them off the shelfs. I'm returning mine today and providing them feedback.
+1, same issues.
Yup, same issues: mouse OK, keyboard not responding in a random way.
Mind you, have a wake-up delay issue with a Microsoft Designer combo.
Logitech combo's have been issue-free for me.
No instructions on Key Features
I bought this product and not familiar with what the key features on each side were and can't find any instructions anywhere on the pamphlet that came with it or on the internet. So basically have a keyboard which I don't know how to use
An absolute lemon i'm afraid..........
I purchased 7 of these from Office works along with 5 laptops a week ago. I was bulk shopping at the time and didn't really think you could go too far wrong with a keyboard, much less a HP brand so I bought them.
As I worked through 2, then 3 of them (thinking it was something I was doing that caused the issues) and then my colleague complained about the same issue, albeit to a lesser degree I decided the product is clearly not up to standard and I would need to return them. We are experiencing the same issues with the keyboard as the ot...her reviewers on this site. Back Space only works intermittently, typing start/stop and goes to 'sleep' for up to a minute then decides to cooperate again. etc....... On the positive side, my other colleague has not reported any issue.... so that's an 80% fail rate from the 5 keyboards we have tested so far.............back to the supplier they go.....What was I thinking? I normally check online reviews first before purchasing. Lesson learned.
Today's special: Type 5 letters, get 2!
You might think that missing every 5th letter you type is liveable, especially when this goes almost 10 minutes at a time without acting up... But it isn't. There is absolutely no pattern to its behaviour. You'll be typing a sentence (it's actually happening right now!) and the keyboard will just say "No, I don't want to type that letter... or that one... or that one... now I'll type 6 of those things because you got annoyed at me and hit the key 15 times, you can have 6 of them... HA? BACKSPACE... No way pal." Basically it'll be fine to write ...a few sentences, but then the last sentence you try to type will take 6 minutes because you essentially have to wait for the keyboard to stop being a jerk. Faulty unit? Nope. I took it back to Office Works and got another... same thing. New batteries? Nup, didn't seem to change at all. In fact it's obvious that it's actually the processing end of it (that is, the dongle and the software it must use to turn your typing into info for a word processor etc.) - because otherwise it would be more intermittent - but for example, I have typed this whole praragraph without a problem... But the next one will probably be hell. This thing is going back to Office works, not worth a 10th of the $30 it cost (I notice they have now come down to $20... but it should be $1.) I just wanted it to have the shame of being forced to reflect on its horrific performance while I typed its review.
