User Review

TROY B., Newegg
1 February 2015
  • Pros: GREAT MOUSE AND KEYBOARD LOVE THE ERGONOMIC SPLIT BOARD
  • Cons: THE RUBBER BUMPERS ON THE BOARD AND MOUSE CAME OFF ABOUT 1 YEAR AFTER PURCHASE, WISH THEY WOULD COME OUT WITH A BOARD JUST LIKE THIS WITH BACKLIT KEYS THAT IS WIRELESS

Hit... and miss

Robert A., Newegg
31 July 2013
  • Summary: It's giant, but for what it is, i can't call that a con, just something to be aware of. I moved to this unit from the Microsoft 4000 keyboard and am really disappointed that quality and feel of the keys just isn't there.
  • Pros: Great ergonomics. Based on an already good design Riser can keep your wrists up even while on the wrist wrest. useful hot keys
  • Cons: Mouse is a bit awkward at first, although you do get used to it. The keyboard is based on the awesome microsoft 4000 keyboard, it looks nearly identical as well so i expected it to be the same, but wireless. Not the case, the keys are looser, more spongy with a less attractive feel. There is also...

The best unusable keyboard.

shulem m., Newegg
30 July 2013
  • Pros: The ergonomics, as the name is implies is very nice, i found myself liking the layout a lot. The mouse is also good if you like the design. Customization is great.
  • Cons: Keeps on missing keystrokes constantly, it works for twenty keystrokes and then misses five or more. Tried new batteries, USB receiver about 10 inches from keyboard, ruled out any interfering wireless devices, nothing helps.

Great product if you know its quirks

Michael P., Amazon
14 June 2013
  • Summary: I have used corded Natural Keyboards for many years. A few years ago I started buying these wireless kits for work. They are extremely comfortable if you take the time to get used to them. Batteries on these also last longer than other wireless keyboards I have used.

Poor connectivity

Edward J., Newegg
3 May 2013
  • Summary: Yes, I have downloaded the latest drivers from MS. I recommend avoiding this piece of garbage. Or, keep your eyes peeled, you may find a free one flung from an office window. BTW, a co-worker likes his wired version of the keyboard.
  • Pros: Cool feature set with many programmable hot keys
  • Cons: Key board and mouse routinely lose the wireless connection-- enough to drive you crazy. Problem observed on both a Dell Optiplex Core2Duo machine running XP Pro, and on my new i7 3770k machine with 16 GB RAM, ASUS Sabertooth Z77 mobo, 128 GB 840 Pro SSD running Win7 Pro. The proximity of the wire...

Crap! Don't waste your MONEY!!!!

Joe, Amazon
20 April 2013
  • Summary: This Keyboard is a waste of money! To begin with, many of the keys didn't work. After troubleshooting with Microsoft, MOST started to work. The caps lock has never worked. After about 60 days many of the keys would crap out intermittently.

DO NOT BUY

Adamhlj, Amazon
19 April 2013
  • Summary: If you want a keyboard and mouse setup that stops responding/transmitting information randomly then this is the setup for you!! This must be a super old product that Microsoft hasn't really updated in some time. The mouse really never worked out of the box.

Big Mistake

Stephen (., Newegg
12 April 2013
  • Summary: If you want precision, don't buy this set. Doesn't come with software which has to be downloaded.
  • Pros: Fancy packaging, Sharp looking set, Decent features.
  • Cons: I upgraded from the much older Desktop Elite set which was great. This set is junk! The key stroke lag times are Ridiculous long. Key strokes frequently do not register forcing me to watch and verify that every single key I pressed registered. Talk about a reduction in productivity. The mouse doe...

Not great!

John M., Newegg
6 April 2013
  • Pros: Ergonomic design and layout is nice. Fairly comfortable keyboard and mouse.
  • Cons: Loud and the connection stability isn't all that great. I use a large screen and am not directly right in front of it, however I am only 4 feet away, and it doesn't continually stay connected very well.

very comfortable combo

Ruoruo Z., Newegg
30 March 2013
  • Pros: I had wrist pain after using normal keyboards and mouse and I bought this combo after using the cabled keyboard for over a year. The keyboard is very comfortable and the typing position feels very natural. The mouse is designed for a smaller hand and people with larger hand will have to get used ...
  • Cons: The key strikes are not very smooth and are pretty long. The sensation is not nearly as good as typing on a good laptop keyboard but will do the job. The mouse is a bit sticky but otherwise good. The worst part is the wireless connection. I use to plug it on the desktop tower under my desk and th...
