Conclusion: Everything on the left hand side is pretty self-explanatory. We have the media playback keys, the left and right-click for the keyboard mouse, a magnifier, gadgets button and a Windows Live Call button. I don’t have a problem with any of the placements or buttons themselves. However, I do find it odd that the gadgets button does nothing more than load up the sidebar if it’s closed, but won’t close if you push it again. It’s overall use seems to be lacking.
Summary: I love this keyboard, it is perfect for me. I specisfically wanted a wireless keyboard and NO numeric keypad - I like to have the mouse close to my natural right hand position. For use, typing etc it is simply the best keyboard I have ever used. I bought 2, one for home and one for my office. The mouse is remarkably unremarkable, and I have dumped it for an ergonomic mouse - it means I need a second bluetooth/wireless receiver, but I live with it.
Summary: Really pleased with size and design of keyboard. Lots of good features for use with Vista. My PC is behind sofa as being used with hdtv in lounge, so Mouse and Keyboard were not very receptive, but once I used a USB extension to give receiver bit more height, it was fine. But for normal use or even media system under tv should be great. Easy setup compared to other wireless keyboards I have owned. Lacks some features found on other keyboards like shutdown button.
Summary: Microsoft Wireless Entertainment Desktop 7000 Mouse and keyboard have been great, much more responsive than other keyboards. Bought from ok-go and they were really friendly and helpful when I phoned with a query. excellent service.
Summary: I have owned this setup since it was first released and I have to say that it is without a doubt the best purchase I have made for my pc of recent times. I do a lot of programming and so that means a lot of typing and so the keyboard has had a lot of use, despite this I have still not had to change the batteries in the keyboard which I think is staggering. Secondly the keyboard looks as good as it did when it was brand new.
Summary: After having used a basic Logitech keyboard + mouse for 4 years, it was time for an upgrade, and this set had always caught my eye. A great buy. Being made by Microsoft it works perfectly along side Windows Vista. The layout is fantastic, but the ergonomic layout does take a little getting used to. The mouse also hosts good features, and does not get uncomfortable to hold after long periods of time.
Buyer Beware - I positevely hate this keyboard and regret buying it big time

Summary: The keyboard is way to small, for me the normal spread of hands is greater then the length of this key board, thus your hands feel crammed over the centre...taking a normal position for my hands I find them resting over the half over the media keys to the left and over the return/page up keys to the right...I swear I will never purchase another one of these..
Summary: As a Pc novice i was expecting a very advanced and technical keyboard that would take a while to get the hang of. However it is perfectly suitable for amateurs like myself and the fact that the tab button actually has 'TAB' spelled on it is great also. The mouse works fine as far i know and the keyboard sits nicely in my lap while i type.
Summary: Love the feel and the looks of this keyboard and mouse when new and they are great to use. Just one word of warning though, my keyboard is now 6 months old and looks VERY shabby. Poor use of plasic on the keys mean they had gone shiny and worn like a old laptop keyboard very quicky and they get scratched really easy. I have tried to take really good care of it but it's not worked! Real flaw given the price and a real shame given how nice it looked when brand new.
