The key board and mouse are very nice to work with until you try and set up special key shortcuts. They are very awkward to locate and set up. I have to reset them each time I reboot my computer. After the last update, the setup location is just gone, no way to set up short cuts.
guess what i'm typing and clicking on right now...

Pros: perfect comfort, performance, and features. wireless mouse is no longer captive to a charging "station". Unifying receiver is compact and easy to setup. Dedicated On/Off switches help save battery life. Terrific packaging and accessories.
Cons: pricey, keyboard prop legs break easily, "minimize all applications" should be possible through the "applications switch" button but it's not.
I purchased these two products separately and I'm happy to see Logitech finally packaging them together, although I haven't seen them packaged together in a retail store yet. This is the most comfortable and quietest keyboard I have ever used, nothing comes close. Also the mouse truly does work on any surface. The style matches each other perfectly and the features are very rich and customizable. I highly recommend this combo for anyone who has wrist joint issues and also professional media editors.
I was a little concerned investing so much money into a mouse and keyboard combo; however it was worth every penny. I love how easy the unifying technology is to use. Both the keyboard and mouse were setup in a matter of seconds. There is no lag whatsoever with either of the products, and I am using them both well away from the computer (15 to 20 feet)
I have not experienced any interference from my wireless router. A problem I read many other people have faced with other wireless combo sets.
K350 keyboard Positives:
All media buttons are customizable. The keyboard is very quiet, there is very little to any clicking noises when typing. It is a pleasure to use to type, as the ergonomic design is the best of any keyboard I have ever used (I have also tried many other Logitech and Microsoft models in the past). The learning curve for this keyboard was also amazingly quick. I have always struggled for a few days to type on other keyboards with non-traditional layouts; however, the moment I started typing with the wave design I saw little to no difference in my typing. If anything I might be a better typist with the wave layout.
Negatives: If I was really trying to find one I would say there could be better alternative function keys standard for the function keys (I feel like I am really stretching even saying that because all of them can be customized, and three keys are left open to be customized by the user).
MX Mouse Positives:
Dark Field technology is mind blowing. I have not found a surface it won't work on. I have tried carpet, shaggy carpet, shinny cloth, dull cloth, leather, high glossy marble, high glossy paint, and glass. The mouse has shown little to no difference on all of the surfaces. The buttons are well thought out, and I actually like that there are less buttons than other high end mice. All buttons can be customized by the owner. The mouse fells like it was well thought out overall.
The sensation of the mouse in the hand is worth the price alone. My wife said it best, "It feels like my hand was made for this mouse and not the other way around."
I don't really like where they placed the two buttons on the side of the mouse, used by typical user as forward and backwards buttons. I find I keep hitting the zoom button which is just below the two other buttons. Still just like the keyboard above I fell like I am being picky in my negative criticism.
Soft, quiet keyboard, no delay, with keys that seem solid, large and comfy, yet easy and pleasant to press. Palm rest feels great, just as a curve of the keyboard. Laser mouse is very comfortable and sensitive.
