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: 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
Summary: I use this when I hook up my laptop to my projector so that I can browse the web or work from the convenience of my couch. It works very well, without a hitch. They keyboard also has a number of cool features you don't even find on a normal desktop pc keyboard. My only qualm is that the wireless mouse doesn't seem to charge in the cradle (but you can swap the rechargable battery for a standard AA battery).
Pros: Easy Connectivity, Ergonomic, Fast Connection
Summary: 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.
Pros: ultra thin, sleek, oozes quality. No need for messy wires.
Summary: Can I connect this to my blackberry? I have an 8830 and it found the keyboard while in pairing mode. But then it asked for the key, i used "0000". The problem was that then my phone said "waiting for keyboard to accept". I tried buttons on the keyboard but couldn't get it to go. Any suggestions?
Pros: Love everythign about it. The typing, the pad, the buttons, the 4 scroll mouse
