Hi
Thanks for posting. And welcome to HUKD.
It is good practice to also add the merchant and price to the title. It helps people who are just browsing through. And in my experience your post will get a few more “hot” votes. I've also added the product description.

They are well worth taking a look at.
This is a link, made by rayman, which explains how to add images in great detail. It’s worth taking a look at if you are going to post more deals in future : - hotukdeals.com/ite…hr/
Again, thanks for posting, and welcome to HUKD.

Exactly, cheapest price available in the UK. Voted hot.

I agree its a good price, although I got mine for about £75 from Amazon last year.
However, I have to say I am really disappointed with it. I nearly sent it back shortly after I got it.
The range it can work at - in the case of mine is about 3 feet which I have to say is pathetic. I cant get it to work at any distance greater than that, which is pretty useless as it was for my media center. Sitting 3 foot away from a 50" screen just doesnt do it for me. I now have this as my desktop keyboard/mouse combo and use an RF setup for the media center.
On the plus side - I like the laptop style keys on the keyboard, but on the down side I personally think the mouse is rubbish, so I have gone back to using my G7 logitech mouse which is great.

In short a good price but I have to say a very disappointing product - heat added for the price

this doesn't make it a bargain or a good deal though.

I have different principles on voting than some on here, if I cant find the product cheaper anywhere else, I will mostly vote it hot. This is expensive for what it is, but its a good deal for some, as its the cheapest they will be able to find it.

i see your point but there are better alternatives for roughly the same price. so cold for me.

Very good price, hot. Just ordered the 7000 series from same site. Don't think there's many other alternative bluetooth combos with full size mice, which is what I was after. Apparently the 7000 and 8000 will work with an internal bluetooth card without needing the USB receiver, so great for laptops.

I only posted this becuase I thought if people were on the lookout for this keyboard, then clealry this is a good deal. It is expensive, but its the cheapest currently abailable. Even on ebay these go for more than this. So basically a good deal in my book. I do not think I will bother in furture !!!

welcome to hot uk deals.:) sorry if sounded a bit picky - just expressing my opinion. thats what the comment pages are for. please don't be put off and do continue to post any deals you find, you did well for your first post.

Good price, I payed £149 for this when it was first launched in the UK as I wanted a decent bluetooth set for my media centre setup.

Good Points: Range and response time is great
Bad Points: The silver paint wears off the mouse and keyboard over time. Paint wore off mouse after a few months so looks a bit shabby.

Hi, am interested but does anyone know if this will work before booting into windows? Fof example the bios and also the operating system selection screen as i have a dual boot system.

Thanks
