Microsoft Wireless Entertainment Desktop 7000

  • Conclusion: If you are hesitant about replacing your Media Center remote with a full keyboard and mouse solution you should really give the Wireless Entertainment Desktop 7000 a chance. It's clear that Microsoft designed this from the ground up for use with HTPC's in your living room. With a page long list of features it's hard to even cover half of them in this review.

  • Summary: Microsoft fits a number of useful features on to the keyboard in its new Wireless Entertainment Desktop 7000 set, but we're not sold. We'll give it credit for its easy-to-use media control buttons, but the keyboard lacks too much overall polish compared to competing products to earn a stronger recommendation.
  • Pros: Media and cursor keyboard buttons make it easy to control your desktop from across the room.
  • Cons: Curved design adds little comfort and makes typing imprecise; keyboard doesn't grip your desk as well as it should.

Microsoft Wireless Entertainment Desktop 7000 Review

HardwareCentral

  • Conclusion: The mouse uses what Microsoft calls its high-definition laser engine, which provides a game-worthy resolution of 1,000 dpi and tracking at 6,000 fps on a wide variety of desk and other surfaces. Microsoft claims the 2.4GHz Bluetooth connection is actually faster than wired technology, and we certainly couldn't make the mouse skew or skip despite our fastest shoves and lunges. All in all, we're impressed with the Wireless Entertainment Desktop 7000 bundle.

  • Excerpt: The problem with having a PC in your living room is simple. It’s the mouse. Mousing on the couch is a royal pain in the ass. Resting your mouse hand on your leg, on a couch arm, or on one of your couch buddies just doesn’t work. That’s why we were excited to see that Microsoft’s new living-room keyboards ship with an integrated mousing surface. We just didn’t understand why the company also included a wireless mouse.
  • Pros: This keyboard system allows you to comfortably lounge on the couch while instant messaging and browsing the web--or whatever else you need to do.
  • Cons: The keyboard is an unusual shape, but mainly to ensure its convenience on your lap. And the off-centered keys are likely something we can adjust to after some practice.

  • Conclusion: What can I say? I love the Wireless Entertain Desktop 7000 and I am positively overwhelmed by its many features. Its tight integration with Windows Vista will leave users of the operating system very impressed and comfortable. When I look back at my Dell PS/2 keyboard, I have to wonder how am I going readjust to it after having such a great time with the Wireless Entertainment Desktop 7000 <sigh>.
  • Pros: Quick Access to functionality – Magnifier, Open Application Viewer, Light, Wireless/Bluetooth, Rechargeable Battery, Customizable/Easy to setup
  • Cons: Instant Viewer should take advantage of Vista’s Flip 3D instead using its own implementation, Not optimized for really fast games., Clicking scroll wheel to activate Instant Viewer is not as instant as advertised

  • Conclusion: Najbardziej zaawansowany technologicznie zestaw - klawiatura i mysz - firmy Microsoft wyposażony jest w transmiter Bluetooth, który pozwala na pracę obu urządzeń w odległości do 9 metrów od nadajnika. Jakość wykonania oraz użyte materiały stanowią klasę samą w sobie. Zaczep klawiszy to klasyczna nożycowa konstrukcja, zapewniająca bardzo dużą stabilność przy relatywnie cichej pracy.
  • Pros: Ciekawa stylistyka, Dobra jakość wykonania, Funkcjonalna klawiatura, Bezproblemowa praca z odległości ponad 5 metrów od odbiornika
  • Cons: Wysoka cena
