Microsoft Wireless Entertainment Desktop 8000
27 January 2008
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)
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.
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
