Love the Color
24 July 2014
Excerpt: I never had a wireless mouse before and it's the best ever. I love the vibrant colors that they have especially this blue. It's my favorite color, and the color in the picture did match what I received. The only thing is, and I guess this happens to all wireless mouse, is that the icon blinks or doesn't make contact sometimes. It does not happen all the time, and it could be because of the surface that I am using.
IT LOOKED AND FELT NICE. ONLY COMPATIBLE WITH WINDOWS VISTA AND XP.

Summary: HAD TO RETURN. NOT COMPATIBLE WITH WINDOWS 7. IT IS ONLY COMPATIBLE WITH WINDOWS VISTA AND WINDOWS XP. IT LOOKED NICE AND SEEMED GOOD QUALITY OTHERWISE. IT HAD ALL THE "QUICK-GO" KEYS I WAS LOOKING FOR. I THINK IT WOULD BE A GREAT PRODUCT WITH THE RIGHT/COMPATIBLE SYSTEM.
Summary: This keyboard and mouse set seems to do what it suppose to do wirelessly. Many features on the keyboard I don't use. There are a number of function buttons assigned to email, outlook of course. One thing I find that might become a problem, is the wheel on the mouse. It feels loose and on the frail side. When scrolling with it, I have to keep turning to get it working. Might need to tweet settings. For the money still think this is a great buy.
Summary: Cheap. If you've got the money, buy something better.
Pros: The keyboard has lots of built-in shortcut keys, and it has a very nice feel. Also, the keyboard is laid out in the traditional fashion; no stupid "ergonomic" curves or vertically oriented key grouping for the Insert-delete key group.
Cons: Inconsistent connection. With multiple-item selections using ctrl/shift, sometimes the keyboard skips out. Very annoying, especially for complex selection. Mouse is the same. Move/click work fine, but sometimes the scroll wheel won't scroll.
Summary: I recently acquired a second desktop and needed to eliminate ALL non-essential cords. I went to the local Big Box retailers to find a deal. After spending an afternoon searching, I jumped on line and WOW!!! The same exact item was $39.99 plus tax at ALL of the Big Box retailers. To get this for xxx was great, so I got two. Thanks Overstock, keep the deals coming!!
Summary: When I received the package containing my Microsoft Wireless Media Desktop 1000 Keyboard and Mouse I was disappointed to see that it looked like it had been previously opened. This was confirmed by the fact that the 4 AA batteries that were supposed to be included were missing and I almost sent the whole thing back. However, I had been wanting the wireless setup and was impatient to see how it works so I used my own batteries and installed it.
