Stylish but might need USB extension

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.
An elegant, ergonomically designed, wafer thin and sexy looking combo.

Excerpt: The Microsoft Wireless Entertainment Desktop 7000 is a superbly designed, and wafer thin keyboard which includes the Wireless Laser Mouse 8000. Designed in mind mainly for the Vista operating systems, the keyboard itself is powered by four AA batteries, two of which are placed at the back right of the keyboard, and the other two are placed in the back left compartment. In my experience, these batteries will last about 7-9 months during average use. The mouse.
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.
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: I was looking to replace my previous Micrsoft Keyboard and Mouse after a solid 5 years of use and decided to opt for this keyboard and mouse set after seeing some of the reviews for the 4000, 5000 and 6000 versions and deciding to steer clear of their associated user problems. Using this set with a Windows Vista PC I found that after the suggested initial charge of the battery it was up and away with very little fuss.
Summary: An excellent keyboard and mouse. I bought this to replace an existing Microsoft wireless keyboard/mouse that I had no problems with except that I needed the greater range that bluetooth provided. I was apprehensive about the instalation as I have had problems with bluetooth in the past but the installation was simple and worked straight away.
Summary: The Microsoft Wireless Entertainment Desktop 7000 certainly looks the part. The gentle curve to the keyboard, the slim profile, various extra keys for assorted functions and a nicely shaped scroll-wheel mouse make this a very stylish package. The clue as to its real purpose is in the name... "Entertainment". First up, installation is a breeze, and it took me less than 10 minutes to install this on a Windows XP machine that had no existing Bluetooth connectivity.
Summary: What a nice keyboard, lovely keys, great to use. The mouse is for left or right handed people so it's not quite as comfy as the intellimouse specifically for right handed people but it is ok. It is lighter with only one battery to power it so that's nice, rechargeable too, just the mouse is, the next one out soon the 8000 has rechargeable mouse & keyboard. Few problems with the bluetooth not connecting very well to start with but that seems to of sorted itself out.
Summary: Klart värt pengarna för min del då jag har en bit mellan tangentbordet och "mediacentret". Valde lillebror framför 8000-modellen, skillde ca 1200 riksdaler för två klackar under tangentbordet, annan färg samt 4 usb portar på tangentbordet. Gillar paketet och det kommer nog att förbli i min ägo tills det går sönder.
