The Baddest Wireless Keyboard Ever
Your Mom, J&R
30 December 2010
Summary: I use this to keyboard when i hook my laptop up to my TV. I hardly use the mouse cause the keyboard is so awesome. when you hold it the pad at the top right is a touchpad and the top left are the mouse clicking buttons. not sure why microsoft stopped making them. can't seem to find other bluetooth keyboards anymore. this keyboard also work with my PS3.
Pros: Accurate Tracking, Comfortable Design, Fast Response, Glides Smoothly, Great Features, Works On Any Surface
Summary: Another abandoned MS product that fills a terrific niche. This keyboard is perfect for people who use their desktop PCs both as general-purpose workstations and as HTPCs.My only complaints are that the included Bluetooth adapter didn't seem to work and the keyboard has limited range (but that might just be due to my setup),[...]That being said, I'm buying a second set as a backup.
Pros: Built-in trackpad, Cheap, Tons of media keys
Summary: The keyboard is awesome. I have used this keyboard at work for over a year and I love it, so I wanted to get one for home. It has lessened the strain on my hands, wrists, and elbows. Fits nicely on my lap. Works fine with Windows XP and Windows 7. The one complaint: Bluetooth connectivity is difficult to set up. I had to set it up manually (Hardware Managed mode, Bluetooth Settings, Add a Device, etc.) on both my XP and Win 7 systems.
Summary: Not a good keyboard for office use. Does not have a 10 number keypad. It also does not have Legs on the back to make the keyboard have an angle. So it lays flat on the desk. I like a little angle to my keyboard. I can see how it would be a great keybaord for someone using it for there Tv and internet. But anyone who does lots of stuff on there computer like games, and office applications it's not very good.
Pros: Durable, Easy Connectivity, Ergonomic, Fast Connection, Versatile
Summary: This is my second 7000. I used the first one at work for years before I built my media PC and switched it to home. The first one died when my kids spilled water all over it. The 7000is virtually the perfect keyboard for the livingroom. Built in touchpad in an easy to use location, all the right keys, easy to use, bluetooth. I looked at other keyboards before deciding that nothing would work better.
Summary: I owned same product for three years and then spilled water on it. Keyboard didn't work right so I ordered a new one from J&R. When the new one came I tried the old one again to see if it would work. I'm happy to say that I'm typing this review with the old one and "I'm not going to send the new one back." It's a very durable product.
Pros: Durable, Easy Connectivity, Ergonomic, Fast Connection, Versatile, Very easy to use
Summary: I had built my own media server and had been looking for the perfect keyboard/mouse combo without breaking the bank. Not only does it give me great range in my living room, it's design looks sleek and feels great to the touch. I particularly like the mouse option on the keyboard. If you do not need extensive mouse work, the thumb mouse pad on the keyboard works just fine. This allows me to kick back on the coach without worrying where to put a mouse pad.
Pros: Easy Connectivity, Ergonomic, Fast Connection, Sleek, Versatile
