[Dell] Microsoft Wireless Keyboard and Mouse Combo $29.99

Needed this since I started working from home. Lowest price I can find on a keyboard and mouse combo.

good combo but the things I don't like:

1. No media control button
2. No sleep power button
3. Need to use a dongle and occupy a USB port.

If you use uBlock Origin in Chrome, disable it and the link will work. It did for me after disabling the extension.

Isn't this price very overinflated? There are Canadian retailers who sell this for $34.99 and even Bestbuy is usually 39.99. Still a thumbs up for it being the lowest current price.

Here is the link without the ad.doubleclick.net referral that causes problems for many who use ad blocking.

MS keyboard and mouse are good quality.
Does Microsoft have something similar to Logitech unifying receiver?

If you buy a wireless Microsoft branded combo like this then yes, they come with a single receiver.

Others can correct me if I am wrong, I don't think there is such a thing as a universal receiver since they are all encrypted to that single receiver they come with.
I'm too poor to buy crap

I myself would prefer Logitech with Unifying receiver as you could get a replacement USB receiver in case you need to. But in this case you will have to get a whole new wireless set as the wireless dongle and mouse/keyboard set are "matched" to the radio frequency that they've been configured to use at the factory.

You can sync any Logitech mouse or keyboard with a "Logitech unifying USB/receiver." However the mouse/keyboard must have the red "unifying" logo at the bottom.
