Creative Desktop Wireless 8000

 

The setup is simple: it includes putting two AA batteries each in the mouse and the keyboard (four batteries are included), plugging in the receiver to a USB port, syncing the units, and installing the software. Although the printed user guide is a bit...

Attractive styling; wireless; comfortable; good variety of function keys.

Keyboard offers only two height options; three-key mouse is basic.

This sleek keyboard-and-mouse set is comfortable and easy to use, and it has a great price, too.

"Average Product"

 

Difficulty encountered when using with Opera and also with MSN hotmail.

Nice Design and Colour and keyboard responses pretty well

Battery does not last long. Normal battery lasts only for a week. Mouse is not very responsive. Most of the time had to click twice before it responses correctly.

Wireless is popular and clears desktop

Fix to tinny sound
