I had this problem with some Logitech wireless keyboards and mice. However, at least for me, there is a super easy solution. Simply plug in the USB receiver to a USB extender. Some Logitech peripherals come with these extenders in the packaging. Even if I put the USB receiver right on top of the box, the reception still works better. I think the problem is that when you plug the USB receiver directly into some computers, it causes interference... even only a couple feet away. In my case, I'm plugging them into metal desktop towers and my theory is that the metal of the case interferes with the signal.

I used the same principal with a USB bluetooth dongle too and easily tripled my range for my Xbox One controller.

hmm I have one of those here in my drawer. let me try if this works. I can still cancel this order

edit:
in the beginning I thought it was fixed with what you suggested. the mouse worked A LOT better but the keyboard still had problems. it's with new batteries too. I will continue with this order hopefully it's better

Not great reviews. Looks ok though, probably worth a shot. Some people plug in usb receiver (unifying in this case) into a PC jammed under their desk and then cry that the mouse/keyboard lags or doesn't work right. Look... the unifying tech works pretty good but it's better with unobstructed line of sight, or at least get the receiver away from your PC a little is enough sometimes. I have tons of Logitech keyboards and mice in my house. If I plug the receiver into a little USB hub on my desk, 100% works fine. If I plug it into my tower under my desk, weird stuff happens.

I have 2 sets of MK520 (previous version) for work and for home. I don't travel too far with the keyboard and mouse from my computer so I can't speak to its connectivity. At the end of the day, I'm happy with mine with functionality and key placements. Only dislike is the 'Function' button is located where 'Task bar' button is placed in my old keyboard. I still haven't gotten used to that yet, it gets a bit annoying when using Excel time to time.

I have this mouse at work. Used 9 hours day for about 8 years until it crapped out a few months ago. (had to disconnect and reconnect the receiver once a day) I ordered the same one again.

I like it because it's a full size mouse. The ones that come in the cheaper sets like the MK320 that goes on sale a lot for $19.99 has a mouse that's small enough to be considered a laptop mouse.

I have the mouse as my HTPC mouse as well. I bought a cheaper logitech set first and the range was terrible. Only about 8 feet away and I got nothing.Only worked from like 3 feet away.

This mouse gets a little choppy if I go to the far end of the table around 9-10 feet, but works fine if I move it to the middle around 8 feet. Hope that helps people.

P.S. This is the cheapest price you'll get for this set. It goes on sale relatively often, but I've never seen it cheaper than this.

P.S. Yes, my PC is in a cabinet, so there may be some interference, but those were my results. 8 feet is still pretty good IMO.

I had intermittent dropouts with my "expensive" Logitech wireless mouse and keyboard. The high frequency signal generated in the PC is the culprit. By putting the receiver in an USB extension cable solves the problem. No more dropouts!!!!
