Summary: the "wrist-rest" is made of plastic and it's rock-hard. the comfort curve isn't as angled as previous versions. and the extra function/shortcut keys at the very top aren't installed well; several of mine were crooked. they look cheap.
My Microsoft Wireless Keyboard 6000 v3.0 is WORTHLESS!
7 October 2012
Excerpt: I am so frustrated with my Microsoft Wireless Keyboard 6000 v3.0, Model # 1374. (Manufacturer Part # : J9C-00001, Dell Part # : A2052731.) It's useless! Why? Because IT DOESN'T WORK! Why doesn't it work? I DON'T KNOW! No liquid has been spilled on it, it has brand spanking new batteries in it, it's been cleaned with a tiny little keyboard vacuum cleaner, but it STILL WON'T WORK. It would be funny if it weren't so aggravating.
Summary: I bought this because I have always trusted Microsoft products. This is a piece of junk. It can't keep up with my typing and I have had to move the USB sensor to the front of my computer and it still freezes. If anything (like my water bottle) is in between the keyboard and the USB piece it won't work. I'm tempted to go back to the old fashioned wire keyboard.
Summary: This keyboard has no on /off switch. And I have dead batteries every few days. I hate this thing and will be replacing it. My Admin bought it for my office and she has been the one buying the batteries for it. She hates it too.
Summary: This is my first really negative comment on any product I've reviewed. Do Not buy this keyboard, don't even except it as a gift. I had mine for less than a year in moderate use and already a third of the keys have the imprints worn off. The keyboard sticks terrible, in spite of me keeping it clean, you constantly get jumps or the key you press repeats the letter twice or you press down a key and nothing happens.
Summary: Very unreliable -- I am continually (at least 5 times a day) having to reset the keyboard. less than 12 in away from the usb plug in & still it quits in the middle of typing - like right now At first I was wasting batteries b-4 I figured out it was not the battery .....
Summary: I own this wireless Microsoft 6000 mouse and keyboard. The transceiver gave out. I searched and found out there are many other people that have the same problems, some right away. No support, no answers, no replacements. In my opinion Microsoft just doesn't support these any more. I realize these are not brand new products, There not that old. I am looking for a new combo keyboard and mouse. This time it won't be Microsoft Products.
Summary: F key was not responsive. Always a delay on all keys. I was replacing an older version of wireless 6000, because CTRL and shift key were getting stuck after 3 + years. Returned, need to look for a replacement that works.
Summary: I purchased this knowing that it was wireless and that their were going to be some times when it wasnt responsive. What i got was a product that was very unresponsive all the time. Im gonna stay wired.
Summary: This was my first wireless keyboard purchase. I thought to myself, "If I'm going to buy a keyboard, why not make it wireless so that I can use it from a distance if need be?" I never imagined that the only distance it would reliably function at would be 18 inches from the receiver. The wireless reception is so poor that I can't even expect it to work reliably when it's placed on the keyboard tray of my desk.
