Layout

Colton M., Newegg
10 October 2009
  • Pros: I havent purchased it, but I wanted to say somthing that it doesnt list unless you look at the picture of it. This is an AZERTY keyboard layout, this is a pro for people who are used to AZERTY.
  • Cons: This is an AZERTY layout keyboard, people used to QWERTY will most likely have a very difficult time adjusting to the different key placements.

Cool, but...

Brian W., Newegg
25 September 2009
  • Summary: $273 is a LOT to pay for a keyboard and mouse, and I don't think this set is worth it. Priced at around $100 it would be a much better deal.
  • Pros: Pretty cool little keyboard and mouse. Built-in USB hub is a nice touch. Automatic backlight is slick. Good range, good response. Mouse is flawless. Rechargeable batteries are included. Drivers installed perfectly in Vista.
  • Cons: Batteries die pretty quickly. My other Microsoft wireless keyboard/mouse last over a year before needing batteries. This lasts only a few days before needing charged. I cannot get the "trackpad" on the keyboard to work properly. It is VERY unresponsive, and seems to work when it wants (which is r...

It is a great keyboard

JUILUNG C., Newegg
18 February 2008
  • Summary: The battary life of the key board is surprising long. I have been using it for more than 2 weeks with 3-4 hours normal usage per day. The backlight is turned on once a while when I accessed it after a long idle or covered the senser accidently. But the edge's battery tends to run forever.
  • Pros: I have owned both microsoft 8000 and logitech edge keyboards long enough to make a few comments. Apparently more reviewers favor logitech edge over 8000. I understand why so. but I would say that is somewhat misunderstanding. You really need to play both of them for quite sometime to make fair co...
  • Cons: The "ESC" key among other touch keys could be mis-fired initially. I am used to it now. The mouse is for both left and right hands so I dont like it very much. However, its performance is just as good.

Awsome

Anonymous, Newegg
13 February 2008
  • Summary: The function keys on top are very sensitive, you barely touch them and they work. I read somewhere that they were too sensitve but it doesnt bother me. they said they would reach for a number key and accidently hit one of the functions keys.
  • Pros: Looks Awsome, Quiet, ctrl + space button work at the same time unlike my last keyboard. touchpad thing on the right of the keyboard is very nice. Works just like a touchpad on a laptop. The included mouse works fine.
  • Cons: There is no sleep button. It can't wake the computer from sleep, I'm guessing its because it's bluetooth. Very expensive.

I take it to bed with me.

Mr. D. Bird, Amazon
8 May 2009
  • Summary: I spend a lot of time lying in bed and entertaining myself with the help of my computer. Sometimes I am in the dark. I watch films. I find wires get in the way of things. If I am typing in adult chat rooms sometimes it is too dark to locate the keys.

Not for Farmers

Mr. R. Tweed "richard_tweed", Amazon
18 February 2008
  • Summary: I've had this now for a couple of months, and am generally pleased. Had I read the comments from P.A.Farmer before buying it though, I probably wouldn't have done and that would have been a shame. Some of the comments aren't exaclty 100% accurate.

i love it!!

Colin "(52)", Amazon
26 January 2008
  • Summary: I bought this keyboard for the following features: - no numeric keypad - so my mouse (right-handed) is closer to my right shoulder, - wireless -ergonomic key layout, and additional bonus I discovered is that the keys are beautifully soft-touch.
