it works.

checkbob, Walmart
24 June 2015
  • Summary: It arrived promptly. I waited a few weeks before installing it. It works pretty well. I probably need to adjust some of the settings to more closely match my old mouse.

Works great, but I prefer cordless....

AdminGal, Staples

  • Summary: This mouse works perfectly, but I just prefer a cordless one. I have enough items on my desk as it is, and it tends to get caught up on things. As far as usability, it does what it's intended to do.

  • Summary: We replaced a sluggish mouse on our older Dell laptop computer. The new mouse is very responsive, feels comfortable to operate, and is priced right.

It's a Microsoft mouse

ncf109, Walmart
22 January 2014
  • Summary: This is the standard, original usb Microsoft optical mouse. Nothing special about it but it works like anyone can reasonably expect. In a world filled with wireless mice and all sorts of other alternative peripherals, this is the old fashioned, humble workhorse.

Works Great, Lasts a Long Time

Donald H., Newegg
26 April 2012
  • Summary: Until you get used to it, the curved keyboard forces you to concentrate on putting your hands closer together to ensure your fingers are on the correct keys. It does have raised markings on the F and J keys so you can feel your way back to the correct position for your index fingers.
  • Pros: I've owned this keyboard and keypad over a year now with no problems; it works every time. I had no problem linking it up to my laptop. Installation was easy. I like that the keyboard is small and the keypad is separate. The small rubber feet keep it in place and it doesn't slide around on the de...
  • Cons: It does go to sleep a little too quickly for me (deduct one egg). Once you get used to it, you know just to hit a key and wait a few seconds, then type. I haven't timed it but it seems just a few minutes of idle time before it goes to sleep. I would have preferred it just stay awake longer or all...

Nice Feel but not perfect for a Mac

Christopher A., Newegg
23 January 2012
  • Summary: If waiting for the keyboard to reconnect is not an issue then this is an excellent product, otherwise not.
  • Pros: Nice feel
  • Cons: If you leave the keyboard alone for 15 min or so it disconnects and it takes about 10 to 20 second to reconnect. Also the bluetooth name for the keyboard and number pad are the same so it make it a pain to degug issues.

User Review

Rick R., Newegg
21 September 2011
  • Summary: I miss the number pad more than I thought I would, had to buy a separate numpad, I'm hoping my next motherboard with build in blue tooth will let me use the keyboard during reboot
  • Pros: love the size, look and feel of the keyboard, not sure when I had to change the batteries out
  • Cons: if you need into BIO's or anything b4 into Windows your out of luck, I have and old USB keyboard tucked out of the way for that

Almost Great

Karen P., Newegg
23 July 2011
  • Summary: This was so close to becoming my full time keyboard. I work about 12+ hours a day on the pc and need a lot from my keyboard. It had a good feel to the keys and was easy to type on. It took a little while to get use to the ergo design but after a few hours I liked it better than the old design.
  • Pros: Easy on the hands. Easy to Type. Great having a separate Number pad. Great design. Incredibly thin.
  • Cons: Blue Tooth auto shut off. There is a big lag when it comes back on.

MS 6000 Bluetooth Keyboard

Thomas T., Newegg
19 July 2011
  • Summary: I write fiction and this is a great board for flowing lines out of my head and onto the page without effort and without having to stop fairly often to shake the stiffness out of my wrists.
  • Pros: The curve of this board makes for long-session (3-4 hours) comfortable typing. The keys are short-travel and solid, between a laptop and a standard keyboard, more like a laptop but with a bit more travel. Good design and high-quality build; the keys offer just enough resistance without being stif...
  • Cons: My gripe's not really about the board. My mini ITX build doesn't have a Bluetooth-enabled motherboard, so I use a Cirago USB Bluetooth dongle. I run Ubuntu 11.4 and can't get to the BIOS with this keyboard as the boot sequence doesn't recognize the dongle soon enough for me to key in. When I need...
