Microsoft Wireless Entertainment Desktop 8000 Review
26 May 2008
Summary: We have used the mouse and keyboard with our Home Theater PC
for the better part of two and one half weeks and I have to say that there was a
slight bit of getting used to it. I started off by having problems with
the touch sensitive keys but after the first week that was no longer a problem. I thought not having a key pad would be killer but since we are using this as a
HTPC keyboard and not a work keyboard the need to input a large group of numbers
Review: Microsoft Wireless Entertainment Desktop 8000
31 January 2008
Excerpt: When we first heard about Microsoft’s Wireless Entertainment Desktop 8000, it was clear we were in for something big. Not only would this mouse/keyboard combination capitalize on the design of the WED 7000 but it would feature a $300 price tag, making it the most expensive desktop kit currently available from a major manufacturer. The question was, what could Microsoft do to justify the price?
Summary: The Microsoft
Entertainment Desktop 8000 is a remarkable keyboard and mouse combination that
gives users a plethora of combinations and uses. From wireless freedom and
cursor control in a single keyboard device to amazing response from a wireless
mouse, this desktop solution is a great system enhancer. A preconfigured and
paired Bluetooth adapter that comes with this system is an even greater bonus.
Pros: Simple Install, Super Cool ambient backlighting, Customizable buttons make using the computer as enjoyable
and easy as possible, Slim design keyboard
makes using this system very comfortable and portable, Many customizable and convenient buttons make work as
simple as possible, User friendly, Wireless freedom
Cons: Top functional panel registers accidental
keystrokes (too sensitive)
Summary: If you have a bit of money to splash around and want a wireless keyboard and mouse package that has all the bells and whistles, the Microsoft Wireless Entertainment Desktop 8000 may be right for you.
Pros: Looks great, lots of shortcut keys, comfortable to type on
Cons: Very expensive, key layout takes some getting used to
Excerpt: The Microsoft Wireless Entertainment Desktop 8000 is the ultimate rechargeable keyboard and mouse for Windows Vista and PC entertainment. Designed to make it easier than ever to control PC media from your desk, your lap - or even from the comfort of your couch.
Summary: Unless you desperately need a full-sized keyboard covered in silver to match your decor, we'd suggest you pass on the Microsoft Wireless Entertainment Desktop 8000, and go for one of the cheaper options.
Pros: High quality build, Backlit, Light, yet rugged, Rechargeable
Cons: Far, far too expensive, Some may have trouble finding somewhere to put the rechargeable dock, considering the over/under arrangement, Mouse heats up when charging
Conclusion: This product is perfect for those who want the latest in technology and style on their desktop. While best suited for Windows Vista Home Premium / Ultimate users to take advantage of all the features available (such as the Media Center features, etc.), this desktop can also work on Windows XP. You can get a similar desktop (the WED 7000) for $100 cheaper, so you need to determine if this version has enough different features to justify the extra cost.
Pros: Sleek Aluminum Design, 4 USB Ports, Charging Hub, Backlit keys, Features Best Suited for advanced versions of Vista, Windows Vista Certified
Cons: No keypad, Expensive, Keyboard is pretty flat, Mouse is the same as stand-alone
Test : Microsoft Wireless Entertainment Desktop 8000

Conclusion: Perso c’est quelquechose que j’aime énormément et c’est une fonction qui me manque sur le clavier de mon nouvel iMac. Peu de points faibles pour ce clavier si ce n’est que l’absence de pavé numérique en dérangera plus d’un et que le prix est rédhibitoire. On apprécie bien son éclairage ainsi que le détecteur de proximité.
