I'm using the wireless keyboard playing WOW under bootcamp without any problems. I haven't tried the mouse. The trick with the keyboard is getting XP to use it, just turn it off and back on again and give it a minute and it should work just fine.

As to responsiveness, it seems to work as well as my wired keyboard did. No problems detected.

Haven't used it for gaming yet, but i've no problems whatsoever using it so far. With audio editing I rely heavily on keyboard shortcutrs so im constantly hitting the keys and i dont think its missed a single stroke yet.

I use both and I haven't had any issues. The only thing you need to remember is that the mouse uses up batteries pretty quickly so you need to invest in rechargeables. In regard to gaming sometimes I miss the multi-button functionality but you can use keyboard shortcuts.

I have the keyboard as well, no problems here (even with games).

Plus on the keyboard the batteries last ages....
