Excerpt: This keyboard has shortcut buttons and even a scroll wheel placed around the keys, so you need to rely less on the mouse. The left side has buttons that let you switch among open applications and perform common tasks. Along the top of the keyboard are shortcut buttons that open common Microsoft Office and Microsoft Works applications. The buttons are customizable in the control panel. The Office Keyboard also has a wide, sloped wrist rest bordering the keys.
Excerpt: The Natural Multimedia Keyboard is the next generation of Microsoft's much-acclaimed Natural Elite Keyboard. It's bigger, has more extra buttons, and it costs more, but the biggest problem I found with it was its generally poor quality of construction. Despite the ergonomic design, the keys get creaky and stiff after only a few days or weeks of use.
Summary: This is perhaps the closest to perfection that a Wireless Optical Mouse can get. I threw every mouse intensive application at it and found that the MX 700 was more than up to the task. Does this nullify the standard optical mouse from Logitech or from other vendors? Not at all. The MX 700 is not the cheapest input device by any means but it is targeted to those in need of a high performance mouse.
Conclusion: The latest Microsoft keyboard is definitely a great addition to the Microsoft keyboard family. It’s clearly one of the most efficient and most productive keyboards available at this time. The touch pad with its unique shortcuts and the Microsoft Office enhanced function keys are definitely a great enhancement.
Pros: Excellent quality,, R, edesigned keys for easier access, "quiet key" touch,, A, pplication toggle switch, .
Cons: Size,, N, ot designed for left-handed users,, S, ome keys don't work in all applications, ,, No USB hub,, No split design,, No more media player control keys.
Conclusion: Équipé d'une interface PS2, ce nouveau clavier signé ne peut plus faire office de concentrateur USB. Dommage car l'ergonomie, l'aspect extérieur et les touches de raccourcis dédiées à la musique sont plutôt une réussite.
Conclusion: Avec sa vingtaine de touches de raccourcis et sa molette de défilement, le clavier de Microsoft allie pratique, esthétique et robustesse. Mais le gain d'efficacité déclaré reste à démontrer.
