Pros: 2 much to say here other than the "clunky" charger is more functional than the diNovo Edge, unless you are an Architectual Digest freak..i.e.style B4 function idiot....
Cons: I have not enjoyed more than a days use B4 recharge time which is not that big of a deal. Just put er to "sleep" at night, wake er up for breakfast. B better if one kept 4 back up bats in which case there should be an easier to open bat compartment.
Pros: Backlit keyboard, Charging dock/USB hub and bluetooth great
Cons: Mouse scroll wheel scrolls smooth instead of clicking, Extra mouse buttons accidentally get clicked, issues with charging, bluetooth dropouts and no connectivity during BIOS POST unless Hardware-managed Bluetooth selected
Pros: Wireless connection is nice. Looks flashy. Rechargeable mouse.
Cons: Enormous-- not good for females. Both keyboard and mouse are way too big for small or medium-sized hands. Keyboard curve makes it even harder to reach. Mouse has a sensitive button for magnification that keeps getting accidentally turned on. Argh!
Pros: distance is good keys are OK charging good and runs a long time on one charge. mouse pad on kbd is OK.
Cons: touch keys are toooo sensitive and I can find no way in setup to fix. Need to figure out how. Mouse too big! Not ergonomic mouse. Function touch key printing unreadable in room light. Not dark enough to illuminate keys internally.
Conclusion: The Desktop 8000 provides an interesting look at what can be done with a simple keyboard. You can use this one device to do so many activities, from typing a document to controlling media. Other keyboards can provide the same functions, but the 8000 is designed with elegance and ease of use in mind for it particular task. It’s a universal remote for your computer, without having to change the batteries.
Pros: Innovative design, Backlit keyboard; the fade in effect when it detects someone is really nice, Bluetooth connectivity is solid, Charging station charges both peripherals at the same time, The keyboard is a breeze to use on the couch
Cons: Most of the setup is made out of plastic, Slight high-pitched humming emits from the charging station while it’s being used, Touch sensitive buttons on the top could have better implementation, $300 MSRP? Really?
