Worst keyboard I've ever used

Justin G., Newegg
22 February 2012
  • Summary: The wireless mouse I got with the replacement keyboard is just as bad.
  • Pros: Ergonomic, shortcut keys are nice. That's it.
  • Cons: Every few seconds, it will either stop registering keystrokes all together and/or register the keystrokes absolutely wrong, by either ignoring a set of keystrokes for a couple of seconds, then catching up, skipping random keys, and duplicating others. (For example, "theen" "cathig" and "keyeys" w...

Just stay the heck away from this

Michael Y., Newegg
23 November 2011
  • Summary: Not worth the investment, causes problems in the longrun, made me lose faith in the Microsoft wireless keyboard/mouse products. Bought a few of them, all didn`t do so well in the long run.
  • Pros: ·Wireless gave me up to 5-10 feet · Keys did not make noise when I type · Typing is more comfortable than your usual keyboard · Makes you feel like you made a good investment on this product · Despite the warranty expiration date, I was able to get this product replaced with a new one
  • Cons: · Makes you feel like you made a really bad investment on this product after 1year+. · My 1st 6000 froze over a year later after purchased and nothing could fixed it (probably a circuit issue) · 2nd 6000, after 1year+ too, malfunctioned, this time it randomly typed certain keys, making it next to...

Useless

James G., Newegg
30 October 2011
  • Summary: Troubleshooting: - I changed the included batteries for new Duracells - Repositioned the USB tranceiver to the front and set up the keyboard within 18 inches of the tranceiver - Downloaded newest drivers from Microsoft
  • Pros: Comfortable typing position
  • Cons: Keyboard has problems communicating with USB tranceiver. Constant missed letters in every word. Lag and delay for the ones it does manage to type. Will not work at all if placed on lap. Speach recognition software is a much more accurate method for inputting text. Prepare to be p0wned if you atte...

Unreliable

Saving B., Newegg
29 April 2011
  • Pros: I used this keyboard at my office, and have had no problems for the last year.
  • Cons: I ordered this keyboard for my home, and it is very unreliable. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. It sometimes just stops working mid-sentence. I've had it 2 months, and according to NewEgg policy, I am past the 30 days and am stuck with it. I think I'll pull my old keyboard back out of t...

DOA

Erik W., Newegg
19 April 2011
  • Summary: Ordered for me by the company i work for, we will have to get it replaced.
  • Pros: Keyboard feels nice, has a decent weight to it, no idea on how well it actually works.
  • Cons: DOA the USB dongle shows signs of obvious abuse prior to being shipped out.... possibly was a returned part that was defective.

Not worth it

Keith K., Newegg
5 April 2011
  • Summary: If the keyboard worked I would have thought I got a good deal. As it is defective I would give it 0 egg not even worth 1 egg.
  • Pros: Comfortable keyboard.
  • Cons: As I have had the keyboard only a couple of days, I found out today that the Q button does not work. Its broken and I threw out the box already. I submitted for a refund and am waiting to see what new egg will do since I dont have a box.

Not made for Windows

Brenton W., Newegg
5 April 2011
  • Summary: It amazes me that Microsoft keyboards don't work on Windows.
  • Pros: The bells and whistles on this are excellent. Unfortunately, the actual basic function of the keyboard isn't there, so I don't get to enjoy those features.
  • Cons: My keys do not work in combination with one another or when they are held down. So shift, control, and alt 'plus' commands don't function, including the one to get the 'plus' sign. Windows thinks this keyboard is a mouse - there seems to be some kind of screw up with the hardware ID, which in tur...

Microsoft wireless keyboards are junk!

Michael B., Newegg
1 March 2011
  • Summary: This is the second Microsoft wireless KB that I have owned and has been a problem. I know that I am picky but the things that I have been experiencing should really have already been resolved with wireless tech in 2010/11 I mean come on Microsoft.
  • Pros: It was very quiet at first and very comfortable.
  • Cons: Became loud after 6 months. Wireless adapter needed to be literally in front of it for it to work correctly. random keys would stop working depending on where my hands were pressing on the wrist guard.
