Microsoft Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 6000
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...
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.
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
Conclusion: With the Microsoft Optical Desktop Elite for Bluetooth, Microsoft utilizes this cutting-edge technology in its updated hardware products with a blast. The keyboard is perfect for those who like a ton of customizable hotkeys and/or use multimedia functions extensively, and includes the new keyboard changes for this season which are different than the previous Bluetooth desktop.
