Top quality and versatile keyboard and mouse combo
I'd read plenty of average reviews about this keyboard and mouse, all of which seemed to focus on the feel of the keyboard, something these reviewers seemed to be incapable of looking past. I can only suggest that Logitech have changed the feel of the keys in subsequent updates of the keyboard because it feels fine to me - the keys are light, positive, have a good feel on the fingers (not at all sticky or squishy) and are very comfortable to use. Overall, the keyboard looks and feels great - it's a quality keyboard not only in how it operates b...ut in it's sleek, sculptured looks which are not only attractive but make it very comfortable with a gently arched keybed which allows your wrists to fall in a natural position. Although I've only had a it a few days, I've no doubt it will be comfortable to use for extended periods. The wrist rest really adds to the comfort level too. It looks great on the desk too - a fullsize keyboad but without all those generally useless 'media buttons' and other shortcut buttons - this is a working keyboard that doesn't take up any more room than it needs. The mouse is also excellent - really comfortable to use, the main buttons have a solid click to them and the whole unit has a quality, robust look and feel. The option for notched or smooth scrolling is a nice touch. I've no doubt this will last as long as the keyboard and will be comforable for use over long periods. However, the main reason I bought the MK850 was the ability to easily have my home PC and my work laptop using the same keyboard and mouse but to be able to easily switch between the two devices. Working from home has made this really important functionality and the MK850 delivers in spades! It's an absolute breeze to swap between the PC and laptop using the dedicated buttons on the keyboard and mouse - takes all of 2 secs to swap seamlessly and it's this functionality alone that makes the MK850 worth it. No more having to deal with juggling two keyboards and mice or swapping USB receivers. This is a revelation and I'm sure my situation (using a home PC and a work laptop in the same workspace) must be a really common setup these days. All in all, I think this is a terrific keyboard and mouse combo, especially for the price. It's a quality, working keyboard with an amazing ability to control 3 different devices and swap seamlessly between them. Couldn't recommend this more highly!
Purchased in April 2021 at PC Case Gear for $146.00.
Great wireless keyboard mouse combo
Just got this recently. So far so good. Set up was quick and work straight out of the box. Typing on the key board has a good feel and quite so it's very good for people that may need to use this in the bedroom. The mouse feel very good in hand also. The only issue I have is the keyboard lay out seem very tight and may need sometime to get use to.
Smooth keyboard and mouse, but pricey
Nice palm rest, but may be hard to clean as it has a layer of fabric. Well designed curved keyboard. The ctrl key on the left is a little small to do copy and pasting of text/images.

A bit overpriced, some quirks, but generally pretty good
I have been using the keyboard for the past month or two. The key layout is not too bad, the keyboard is subtly curved upwards in the middle, keys respond well, and it is mostly quite nice to use. There are just a few items of feedback I have:
- It has a few nice features such as long battery life and connectivity with up to 3 devices.
- It's designed as both a Mac and Windows keyboard, and keys are labelled for both so it can appeal to a range of users.
- wrist rest is comfortable, and keyboard height and slope is good
