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.
Very happy with Microsoft Hardware - Loathe Logitech low standards

Summary: I am in I.T., am at my keyboard 30+ hours per week, and have been using Natural -Split- Keyboards for over a decade. Nothing compares once you adjust.. and all of my converted clients agree (none will go back after years of use).
Summary: I am used to a split keyboard so I really love this product. I use rechargeable batteries so I don't mind replacing them every couple of months. Thanks Microsoft for a good product release!
Pros: Win7 recognized but full driver download on Microsoft site. Best shaped mouse Microsoft or anyone has made! Keyboard is good but you must familiarize with split keyboard. Everything seems solid on this recent build unlike Win8 for touch tablets being sold for desktops!! ouch
Cons: Expensive. Keyboard combos are good quality for less money and this is new but much needed. Microsoft lost a lot of customers not coming out with this sooner!!! Duh, sumbuddy at Microsoft is afraid of making mistakes! I guess sumbuddy was absent from Win8 release??? Some with small hands might fi...
Summary: I'm not totally bummed out about this only being sold as a pair (KB+mouse) because I can always use the MS 7K mouse as a backup when I have to dock my Revolutions mouse to recharge its batteries.
Pros: (1) Easily the most comfortable keyboard I have used. Others tell me its split design throws them off. But I love it. Being a less then perfect typist, I find the split helps me know where the keys are better, and so I type a bit better. I also have had some issues on other keyboards with nerve i...
Cons: I wish you could buy just the wireless 7000 keyboard without the mouse. Even though I like the mouse a lot (using it at work all day), I like that "logical revolutionary" mouse even better (using it at home), and plan to keep it, even after upgrading my home setup from the wired to this wireless ...
Summary: I'll never go back to any other Keyboard. I'm now on my 4th or 5th one and I use the heck out of them. They last very well though I'll say they don't much like Mt Dew. I've used them so much I've worn the letters off them. But I love mine for it's comfort.
Summary: I started using my 7000 series keyboard and mouse over three years ago. I sustained a fracture to my wrist and it only allows me a 65% rotation. The keyboard is a perfect fit for that angle. I recommend a wrist support to anyone that is using the mouse.
Pros: The keyboard and the mouse are an excellent combination for anyone that has ever suffered a wrist injury or carpal tunnel syndrome. The mouse is large and at first it feels uncomfortable. But after a few days of using it, you won't give it up ever again. When you have to use a standard mouse agai...
Cons: The RF reception is not the greatest so you are limited to about 3 feet from the receiver. When you batteries that seem to last for ever start to get week that distance is reduced.
Summary: People have commented about communiction problems. I have had some on occasion but I replace the batteries and they go away. I have seen other suggestions for moving the receiver which I sure helps. My computer is above my desk and the reciever is in site on the back of the computer.
Pros: Both the mouse and keyboard excellent comfort and ergonomics. As I look down at my hands and wrists as I type and they are at perfect alignment. The mouse did take a little getting used to but there are instruction that come with it that say to place the outside of your hand on the desk to the ri...
Cons: The mouse is left handed only. Lack of wireless encryption.
