Microsoft Wireless Optical Desktop for Bluetooth Review

HardwareCentral
15 October 2002

  • Cons: If you have to ask, you can't afford it, Only for Windows XP, not 98, Me, or 2000; mouse buttons not as customizable as those of other Microsoft mice

Active Network
24 April 2009
  • Conclusion: This product is perfect for those who want a "techish" style in their lives all while having the latest and cutting-edge technology features.

The keyboard design has been refined over last year's models and provides an updated look over previous desktops.
  • Pros: Enhanced Optical Technology, Nice Color/Design, Longer Battery Life, Tilt Wheel
  • Cons: No Natural Edition, Keyboard not wireless, Not Bluetooth
