Microsoft Arc Keyboard Review

  • Excerpt: On February 21st Microsoft is introducing the Arc Keyboard exclusively in BestBuy stores.  Like Microsoft’s Arc Mouse, the Arc Keyboard stands out for its design. About the size and weight of a thick magazine, the Arc Keyboard blends inconspicuously into its surroundings.  It stores conveniently and maintains a low profile.  The Arc Keyboard weighs less than a pound and measures less than an inch thick.
  • Pros: Sleek design
  • Cons: Collects fingerprints

  • Summary: The wireless Microsoft Arc Keyboard is lightweight, attractive and comfortable to use. At around £40, we wouldn't recommend it as a replacement for a standard keyboard, but, for anyone who regularly uses a computer as part of their home-entertainment set-up, the Arc is a worthy investment
  • Cons: Fairly expensive; direction buttons have been merged into a single button that's relatively awkward to use.

  • Excerpt: The Microsoft Arc's name comes from its curved chassis, which bulges upwards in the middle and slopes gently forward. This design makes the Arc pleasant and comfortable to use, as well as giving it an elegant, eye-catching look.

  • Excerpt: We first saw Microsoft’s Arc keyboard way back in January, at CES , before its eventual release a few months ago. With a light feel and chiclet key style, the Arc keyboard is ideal for those wanting an unobtrusive, wireless keyboard with a small form factor.

  • Conclusion: I've been a fan of Microsoft's hardware products for a long time. That being said, this keyboard is no exception. It is well made, easy to type on and very attractive. It's not designed for every computing environment. But with the micro-receiver that attaches magnetically to the bottom of the keyboard, and the sleeve for transporting the keyboard with other mobile devices, it makes for a very nice mobile accessory.
  • Pros: Stowable Transceiver, Battery Indicator, Compact & Portable Design, Windows 7 Certified, Carrying Sleeve
  • Cons: Non rechargeable batteries, Matching mouse separate
