Conclusion: The Microsoft Wireless Laser Desktop 6000 looks very nice. It feels nice and comes packaged very nicely. Everything about it is clean and meant to look good. It comes with the necessary items to get started, including batteries. The online support is pretty good, including easy access to drivers and information. The keyboard is very excellent looking, especially the semi-transparent smoked plastic trim on the keyboard.
Pros: Very long range, Comfort curve design reduces wrist strain, Quiet keys, Short keys for fast typing., High DPI laser mouse for high precision, Very small and portable wireless transceiver, 30, customizable keys.
Cons: Mouse shape requires getting used to, Keyboard wireless disconnections, No on-keyboard indicators for the various lock buttons.
Summary: The most comfortable keyboards in production have a "split" ergonomic design, but if you don't touch-type, they can be too difficult to learn how to use. The Microsoft Wireless Comfort Keyboard makes a compromise for standard keyboard lovers: it's only slightly curved, so you can have some extra comfort without having to make dramatic changes in your typing habits.
Conclusion: Basically this setup houses advanced keyboard and mouse technology in the same product. Everything works nice and smooth though no real innovations was included as expected. Keyboard is definitely the strongest part of this product. The feeling is just right, at least for me. After using this, other keyboards sound loud, clicky and cheap. Curved shape is also more natural to wrists and typing all day long shouldn't be too painful.
Pros: Silent and high quality keyboard, Promised battery life, ergonomics
Cons: Mouse delay for hardcore gamers, Mouse is quite heavy

Excerpt: When Microsoft decides to become a player in your market, you best watch your 6 o’clock, and you can bet that’s what other input device manufacturers have been doing since the introduction of the Wireless Laser Desktop 6000. You’d expect tight Windows integration for the maker of the OS, but how do all the other intangibles measure up compared toe the competition? You might be surprised.
Pros: Aesthetics; great drivers; responsive
Cons: Mushy keyboard; cheap feeling plastics; no charging dock; button lettering rubs off
Summary: Microsoft has come up with a great offering in the Wireless Laser Desktop 6000 Keyboard and Mouse set. With offering this combination at the bargain price of $56.99, anyone looking for a wireless desktop set up should give this one some serious consideration. Performance of both the mouse and keyboard were better than I had hoped for, and both maintained a strong signal no matter where in the room I used them from.
Pros: » Flexibility of a wireless desktop set up, » Extreme programmability, » Ergonomic design makes both keyboard and mouse very comfortable, » Easy to use and stable software, » Stylish good looks, » Lots of specialty keys that are programmable to your needs

Conclusion: Overall I'd have to say that this desktop package is among the best replacements for standard OEM keyboards and mice for home users. It's certainly competition for some of Logitech's high-end desktop packages, but in general I think I prefer Logitech for "straight" keyboards. Still, the Microsoft Wireless Laser Desktop 6000 is a great package.
Conclusion: Microsoft’s Wireless Laser Desktop 6000 is a very nice keyboard and mouse combo. All of the downfalls of this desktop set were minor and simple idiosyncrasies of all Microsoft keyboard and mice. These downfalls included two separate programs to configure the keyboard and mouse, no “lock” key status indicator lights, and the most infamous Microsoft feature, the F Lock key. Overall, I found the keyboard to be comfortable to use for extended periods of time.
Pros: Uses 2.4GHz frequency, Tons of programmable buttons on the keyboard, Comfortable, 3 Year Warranty
Cons: Requires software installation to program non-standard keys, Two separate pieces of software for configuring the software and mouse, No Caps Lock, Number Lock, or F Lock indicator lights on keyboard, F Lock
Summary: Denne nye udgave af Microsoft Wireless Laser Desktop 6000 byder på et lækkert tastatur, der med sine mange genvejstaster bl.a. er forberedt til det kommende styresystem Windows Vista, og en kontormus, der ligger godt i hånden. Tastaturet har flere fine ergonomiske egenskaber, og vinklen på det kan justeres på tre forskellige måder hvis man fx foretrækker, at tastaturet skråner meget bagud, kan man benytte afstandsstykket, som er placeret under håndledsstøtten.
