Microsoft Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 6000

 

If Apple's keyboards, with their extreme thinness and laptop-stylekeys, resemble an underfed model, all waiflike and delicate,Microsoft's usual offerings look like they've been bulking up with IsoMass Xtreme Gainer protein powder. Their wireless...

Sleek design. Portable number pad. Batteries included

No Eject key. No light for the Caps Lock key. Command key has a Windows logo on it--can't we get a Command-symbol stick to slap on there

Microsoft ought to make a Mac-specific version of this keyboard, but even as is, it's a winner for its comfort design, good looks, and portability.

Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Desktop 7000

 

We've long admired Microsoft's Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000; its combination of a downward tilting typing surface and a split layout is the perfect salve for our aching wrists. But we aren't as fond of the Natural Wireless Laser Mouse 6000, which is...

The keyboard: ergonomic, long battery life, hella comfy

The mouse: not precise enough to use for gaming; no rechargeable batteries

The keyboard is a good match for gamers, but we can’t recommend the mouse for anyone who needs to make high-precision movements. Unfortunately, this wireless keyboard’s score is brought down by its subpar companion.

Microsoft Entertainment Desktop 7000

 

The problem with having a PC in your living room is simple. It's the mouse. Mousing on the couch is a royal pain in the ass.

This keyboard system allows you to comfortably lounge on the couch while instant messaging and browsing the web--or whatever else you need to do

The keyboard is an unusual shape, but mainly to ensure its convenience on your lap. And the off-centered keys are likely something we can adjust to after some practice

If Microsoft improves the performance of the mouse surface and ditches the then-unnecessary mouse, this could be a killer living-room keyboard.

Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500 Studio Series Artist Edition

 

The Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500 adds more than an artist's touch to its design, between customizable software and its sweet sub-$30 price this mouse should be on your mobile radar.

Lovely design. Rubber sides. Customizable software. Plug-and-play ability. USB storage

No browser buttons or tilt scroll function. Not a lot of extra features

Editor's Choice!

Microsoft Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 6000

 

The Microsoft Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 6000 is a great starter keyboard for those that want added comfort in their typing experience.

Comfort curve. Simple design. Slim profile. Bluetooth. Great starter keyboard. Comes with separate numeric keypad

Setup can be a bit intimidating

Microsoft Wireless Comfort Desktop 5000

 

If you're looking for a comfortable everyday keyboard-and-mouse combo for a new Windows 7 PC, check out the Microsoft Wireless Comfort Desktop 5000.

Slim. Ergonomic. BlueTrack technology. Offers Windows 7 functionality

Not exactly plug and play

Microsoft Wireless Comfort Desktop 5000 Keyboard

 

The Microsoft Wireless Comfort Desktop 5000 is an $80 keyboard and mouse combo that offers all of the innovative and customizable features we've come to expect from Microsoft peripherals. The mouse is simple in design but also features Microsoft's...

Impressive list of customizable features; receiver connects to keyboard and mouse combo.

Difficult to adjust to curved design; removable feet easily misplaced; narrowly-shaped mouse hard to grip.

The Microsoft Wireless Comfort Desktop 5000 is a solid keyboard and mouse combination with a bevy of customizable buttons that make it a no-brainer to use with a home theater PC, but the asymmetrical button layout on the keyboard requires time to...

Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 4000 (Wool Blue)

 

The Wireless Mobile Mouse 4000 is Microsoft's latest travel mouse. It offers many of the same features as the Explorer Mini , but does so for $20 less. This $40 device also uses Bluetrack sensing technology, which lets you use it accurately across a...

Bluetrack technology tracks on almost any surface; "Power" slider conserves battery; right and left hand compatible; contoured shape; transceiver attaches to undercarriage.

Limited battery life of nonrechargeable AA batteries; smooth vertical rocker lacks precision; pricier than other mobile mice.

The Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 4000 doesn't leave much room for complaint. Some will balk at the $40 price tag, but this mobile traveler fits comfortably in your hand and it can mouse on almost any surface, thanks to Microsoft's innovative...

Microsoft Wireless Desktop 3000 Review

 

So you need a new mouse and keyboard, but the economy being what it is, you don't have a lot of green to spare. If you're willing to accept some compromises, Microsoft has a very good combo package including both with more features than you might...

Programmable hotkeys ; loaded with features ; mouse works on almost any surface ; inexpensive

Mouse buttons require too much fingertip pressure ; glossy black plastic shows smudges and scratches easily ; doesn't come with rechargeable batteries ; Long-term durability

Microsoft had to cut corners somewhere to hit this attractive price point...

Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Desktop 7000 Keyboard and Mouse Set

 

The Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Desktop 7000 is a mainstream solution: It's likely not going to solve the unique problems of clinically injured computer users, but it does seem like a decent entry point for the average user who wants a slightly more...

Easy-to-adjust keyboard height and angle; split keyboard design with raised center makes for comfortable typing; programmable quick-launch keys cut down on mousing; unique mouse design keeps wrist at a neutral angle.

Keys and scroll wheel offer a bit too much resistance for ultimate comfort; mouse is right-handed only; inconvenient thumb-button placement.

Though it may not offer much relief from clinical repetitive stress injuries, the Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Desktop 7000 will satisfy users who want a slightly more comfortable keyboard and mouse than the one that came with their computer.
