Aldi is Selling a Medion Wireless Keyboard and Mouse Set

This post is an open thread and contains affiliate links.

I never quite know what I’ll find in the Aldi middle aisle, but I’ve learned that electronics can and do make an appearance. In the early days of this website, I remember seeing weather stations, laptops and tablets, and even desktops and monitors. In more recent years, Aldi has gone smaller, selling things like light bulb speakers, SD cards, clocks, charging stations, and earbuds.

Aldi has sold keyboards and mice before, including gaming versions of them over the holidays. Recently, though, Aldi revealed it was putting a more productivity-minded pair on shelves.

What We Know:

Medion Wireless Keyboard and Mouse SetThe Medion Wireless Keyboard and Mouse Set is an Aldi Find, which means it’s only in stores for a limited time. Once it’s gone, it’s gone. Medion is a German subsidiary of Chinese electronics giant Lenovo and has been an Aldi partner for years now.

At the time of this post, the set costs $16.99. For comparison, Logitech — one of the most popular mouse and keyboard makers out there — sells a set for $24.99. Even generic brand sets, though, are currently running in the $20-30 range, so the Aldi price point is very competitive.

This looks to be your standard office-style wireless keyboard and mouse set. It runs on batteries, which are included, and presumably connects through a 2.4 GHz USB dongle, although the information Aldi provides doesn’t make that clear. It also appears to come with a 2-year warranty.

According to Aldi, the keyboard’s features include:

  • sleek low profile keys
  • integrated full numeric key pad
  • wireless up to 33 feet

Meanwhile, the mouse’s features include:

  • designed for both right and left hand
  • optical sensor
  • selectable DPI (800, 1200, and 1600)
  • wireless up to 33 feet

What We Don’t Know:

There’s a fair bit we don’t know about this set. We don’t know for certain if it’s 2.4 GHz or possibly Bluetooth. We don’t know how well it pairs, or if it needs any kind of proprietary software to run. We don’t know how well it works with specific devices. We don’t know how long battery life is, or how durable and long-lasting these accessories will be.


Do you have any experience with this set? Let us know in the comments.

  1. This mouse and keyboard use a 2.4 GHz USB receiver which is packed inside the mouse’s battery compartment. No driver or software is needed; it pairs instantly. Bought it this morning so I can’t comment on the battery life. I am using it with a Dell Latitude E7450 laptop that is five or six years old which is used only for business purposes. The keyboard is a little clackety, so I’d likely use the built-in keyboard for taking notes during a Zoom meeting.
