Microsoft Wireless Desktop 2000 Review


If you're like most of us, it's unlikely that hackers have much interest in intercepting what you're typing. Still, with schematics and software to build keyboard sniffers readily available, it's nice to know you're protected from ne'er-do-wells, and...

Microsoft Wireless Media Desktop 1000 (Black)


Microsoft's entry-level Wireless Media Desktop 1000 offers an affordable mouse-and-keyboard set for PC owners. At $50, it's less expensive than Logitech's $60 Cordless Desktop S520 . We found few surprises with either desktop set, although Microsoft's...

More affordable than Logitech's similar desktop set; more hot keys.

Uninspired hot-key placement; chunky, outdated design.

Microsoft's Wireless Media Desktop 1000 will provide you with a perfectly capable wireless mouse and keyboard for a more reasonable price than its competition. We just wish Microsoft would give more thought to the design and overall feel of its hardware.

Microsoft Reclusa Gaming Keyboard


Microsoft and Razer have released a great keyboard, but it falls short in satisfying our gaming needs.

Attractive design with blue backlighting. Soft and cushy keys. Solid software. Two USB hubs can handle modest input devices

No Windows Start key disabler. Extreme gamers might demand more macro keys and more than eight keypresses. No option to turn off backlight

Microsoft Wireless Optical Mouse 2000


To start using the Optical Mouse 2000, you need only to insert two AA batteries into the bottom of the mouse and plug in the wireless receiver to a free USB port. Microsoft's IntelliPoint software isn't included in the package, but you can download it...

Inexpensive wireless mouse; three programmable buttons; ambidextrous design.

Poor wireless range; software not included in package; not completely comfortable.

The Microsoft Wireless Optical Mouse 2000 is a basic and inexpensive mouse that will serve left- and right-handed users alike. But anyone in search of extra buttons or special software should look elsewhere.

Microsoft Wireless Intellimouse Optical


Microsoft has rolled out three new special-edition mice-meaning they'll be produced for months, not years. The Night Vision Wireless IntelliMouse Explorer, with its green-over-black finish, reminds us of the falling digits on the black background seen...
