My Memorex doesn't go thru batteries like crazy. I don't know which Memorex one you had, but I don't think the set I posted above ate thru an unreasonable amount of batteries. I changed the batteries on the keyboard once since I've owned it and on the mouse about every 3-4 months.
BTW, someone mentioned the Logitech Cordless Elite Duo and the memorex one I posted was developed to complete with that same exact Logitech model. It does everything the Logitech one does, only for a shitload cheaper.
But anyhow, that's my opinion on that keyboard and mouse combo. I just have loved every bit of it.
The only downfall that I can think of is the mouse's dpi resolution. Though 800 dpi is great for most applications, if you photoshop a lot, 800 dpi isn't as fine as it can be. The movement of the mouse isn't as refined as some wired mice with balls. I don't know if this is an optical issue or a wireless issue or a Memorex issue. Meaning, the mouse goes into power saving mode when not in use but when it senses that it's being moved around, it wakes up and so in order for the mouse not to wake up all the time, they purposely designed it to be less sensitive to movement in order to not drain the batteries.
