The Kensington ci70 wireless desktop keyboard and mouse set is a welcome replacement for the boring and generic keyboards and mice that typically come with desktop computers these days. If you have a laptop this wireless set also makes for the perfect desktop environment for your laptop as you only have to plug in a single USB receiver instead of using an expensive docking station.
We’ve reviewed Kensington products before, including the identical stand-alone wireless mouse, and we’ve always been impressed with Kensington’s build quality and design aesthetics. Their mice are among the most comfortable to use whether wireless or wired. The keyboard that comes in this set is no exception. It’s well thought-out design is comfortable to use. The keys travel nicely and provide a satisfying feel in use. The mouse docking area on the keyboard is an appreciated touch towards saving on battery life and desk real estate.
Kensington’s support is excellent as well. When we broke our original mouse’s receiver Kensington replaced the entire package without hesitation.
This desktop set is highly recommended. It’s an A plus in our book!
