Microsoft Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 6000

Hardware Pacers
2 May 2010
  • Summary: The Microsoft Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 6000 is not a feature packed keyboard, but it is a nice no frills compact and mobile wireless keyboard. With additional number pad a user can decide on if a full numeric keypad is needed or simply use the keyboard by itself. The lack of an included Bluetooth transceiver is a con that will alienate users of computers that have no Bluetooth capability, however if a Bluetooth enabled user is looking for a no nonsense compact keyboard...

Microsoft Optical Desktop Elite for Bluetooth

PC Magazine
4 May 2008
  • Excerpt: Microsoft has refined its previous Optical Desktop slightly to come up with this Bluetooth version. The chief difference is that it trades in the large RF receiver for a compact Bluetooth dongle. The mouse is slightly heavier than before, perhaps to accommodate the Bluetooth technology. Because of that and a different curvature around the thumb groove, it's a bit harder to pick up and reposition than before.

Great mouse, good keyboard, excellent drivers

  • Excerpt: The Microsoft Wireless Keyboard Elite consists of two new-and-improved products from Microsoft -- the Wireless Intellimouse Explorer and the Wireless Multimedia Keyboard Elite. These two devices are capable of a wireless range of a little over 4 feet away from their receiver; in fact, I measured 52" as the exact point where reception starts to fail. In Microsoft's specs, they mention 6 feet, but I wasn't able to achieve that kind of distance with our test units.

  • Conclusion: It’s very hard not to like the Wireless Desktop Elite set from Microsoft. For a set of input device, the comfort level and build quality is truly top notch. Well, for an eye-popping price tag nearly touching the S$170 mark, anything less than the above-mentioned is probably unacceptable. The keyboard is quiet, responsive and soft enough to perform fast-touch typing on it.

  • Conclusion: Overall, I like this keyboard set very much. It is stylish and functional at the same time. The recommended price of $89.95 makes it a little bit pricey for a keyboard, although it does add the convenience of a mobile keyboard and number pad for users who are often on the go.
  • Pros: Comfort Curve Design, Bluetooth (no receiver to lose), Battery Indicator, Carrying Case, Compact & Portable Design, Windows 7 Certified
  • Cons: Non rechargeable batteries, Pricey, For Bluetooth Users Only
