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...

Overall good keyboard

RICHARD H., Newegg
7 March 2013
  • Summary: Probably software that would allow the indicators to show up on screen but haven't checked for that yet.
  • Pros: Nice feel, palm rest is very comfortable. I seem to type so much better on this keyboard. I have been using this style mouse forever and have always liked it.
  • Cons: No Caps Lock or Num Lock indicator lights on keyboard. Strange since I have never seen a keyboard like that. Benefits is improved battery life or so I read. When you have to key in a ton of passwords a day though its nice to know when the caps are on.

strange

Eugene D., Newegg
9 January 2013
  • Summary: Overal, I think it should work out for what I want to use it for, I don't want sit within 3 ft of a 55" plasma.
  • Pros: Works fine for what I needed for, I am using it to send this review, and I am quite surprised, (while I was typing the last line, it froze up and none responsive to the input).
  • Cons: Need indicater lights for various keys i.e CAPITAL LOCKS, FUNCTION KEYS, AND NUMBER LOCKS.

Good, but I wish it was more durable.

Brian H., Newegg
5 November 2012
  • Summary: As a professional computer programmer, a good keyboard isn't option...it's a job requirement. I've been using Microsoft Natural keyboards since picking up my first in 1995, and I'll swear by them to anyone who asks. My only real complaint about them is durability.
  • Pros: Keyboard is fast and extremely comfortable. Keys feel solid with excellent responsiveness. No wrist pain or soreness even after a dozen hours of uninterrupted typing. Mouse may look and feel a bit funny at first, but it's really very comfortable once you get used to it. Contrary to what some othe...
  • Cons: Durability, durability, durability. It seems like I'm buying a new one every 2-3 years. Mouse can be a bit picky about the surfaces you use it on. It doesn't like overly smooth surfaces at all. In my experience, they seem to work best on cloth covered mouse pads, and worst on shiny rubber gel-pad...

Do not connect usb dongle in the back of a metallic case

Torben F., Newegg
13 October 2012
  • Summary: Keep in mind the mouse is entirely for right handed mouse operator. Bad reception with keyboard/mouse non-responsive, see cons review for a possible solution.
  • Pros: Great customizable wireless keyboard with a great layout for someone using a computer daily for typing/coding in Windows OS. The wireless mouse is comfortable for a large right handed person
  • Cons: Faced serious issue with connectivity on my personal build with the receiver dongle attached to a rear USB port on my HAF922 case. When booting up system did not detect either keyboard nor mouse so I could do nothing in BIOS. It should be mentioned my WiFi access point is very close to the comput...

Love the Keyboard, Hate the mouse

Benjamin L., Newegg
25 August 2012
  • Summary: 3 eggs for the mouse, 5 for the keyboard for an average of 4 eggs. In all, not a bad combination, but I wish MS would offer the keyboard and mouse separate. I did notice also that the keyboard does not seem to have a power button, but that's not worth removing an egg for.
  • Pros: Great keyboard, very ergonomic, lots of programmable buttons, but I think the best features are the split keyboard and the negative tilt riser. Exactly what I was looking for to spare my poor wrists.
  • Cons: The mouse isn't so great. It's big and bulky and does not slide as smooth as most mice that I've used. I was not impressed with it's "ergonomic" design.

I can type again!

LM, Amazon
3 February 2011
  • Summary: Note: The 4000 and 7000 are identical except the 7000 is wireless and comes with a mouse I can't use. I managed to hurt the extensor muscles/tendons on the back of my hand and they are being very slow to heal. Typing has been very painful on a standard keyboard.

Mouse is bad for me, I like the Keyboard

ganesh usha "ganush", Amazon
11 November 2010
  • Summary: I see that pretty much everyone says that the mouse is good and the keyboard is bad. But in my case it's the opposite. I have carpal tunnel and so I bought this kb-mouse. I still can't type for a long time, but compared to the regular kb, this one is far better.
