AGK Nordic Wirless Keyboard and Mouse

Does anyone have any experience of AGK Nordic as a manufacturer? I am looking at a wireless keyboard and mouse available via ebay but can't find out much information regarding reliability and performance etc. Info from website appears okay, including manual and product data sheet:

Any thoughts appreciated.

It's very probable that AGK Nordic doesn't actually make such products, but rebadges those from specialist manufacturers such as the well respected A4Tech. See:

It may evolve a wireless keyboard and mouse set from one each of A4Tech's products - it's very common practice and good examples are provided by Typhoon, Trust, Aldi and Lidl (under the Silvercrest brand name).

Certainly AGK Nordic's gaming mouse is very similar to one from A4Tech.

Thanks Stuartli - I assume this means that they will be of acceptable quality for the average computer user then? No gaming or other intense use required.

I wouldn't worry - I'm sure you will be delighted.

But remember that such sets (rebadged A4Tech products) can be obtained at prices from £14.99 upwards from Staples, Lidl, Aldi etc, so don't pay over the odds (and that includes allowing for p and p).

This is the one I have been looking at:

The AGK Nordic thing was obviously a bit of a red herring or they are both rebadged - available for approx £20 incl p&p from various sellers.

This is the Silvercrest keyboard and mouse bundle I have (£19.99 from Lidl at the time); Silvercrest is a brand owned by Lidl:

It comprises A4Tech products (very good quality) rebadged under the Silvercrest name. If you can get it on e-Bay at a good Buy Now! price with p and p it's well worth buying. The mouse in particular is very comfortable to use.

Works under the basic Windows mouse drivers, but check the back of the keyboard or manual for the correct setup for the transmitter.

This was the Typhoon Navigator set I had a few years ago (again rebadged A4Tech):
