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 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

Expert review by:

Microsoft Wireless Optical Mouse 2000 (Sterling Grey)

 

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 B7T-00001 Normal 21 Function Keyboard

 

Microsoft put some interesting touches on its fashionable Wireless Laser Desktop 6000. The mouse's high-definition laser might be the immediate attention grabber, but the mouse's ability to quickly magnify a word, an image, or an entire Web page with...

Good-looking; curved keyboard for faster, more comfortable typing; several programmable quick-launch keys; Windows and Mac OS compatible; handy Zoom Slider and magnification features.

Separate interfaces for configuring mouse and keyboard; mushy mouse buttons; overall cheap feel.

It's wireless and stylish, and it offers several useful features, but the Microsoft Wireless Laser Desktop 6000 has a cheap, lightweight feel that hurts this otherwise well-designed keyboard-and-mouse set.

Microsoft Wireless Notebook Optical Mouse

 

Microsoft's mice always fit the hand beautifully, and this notebook mouse is simply a smaller version of the company's popular IntelliMouse. Though it's larger than the other mice here, it's also the most comfortable. It connects via an RF receiver,...

Extremely comfortable design. Comes in two colors. Works wirelessly via RF. Receiver snaps onto bottom of mouse when not in use and turns the mouse off automatically. Works off one included double-A battery

Larger than most notebook mice. No way to tell when the battery is running low

Expert review by:

Microsoft Wireless Notebook Optical Mouse ( Slate)

 

With basically no setup, your mouse will be up and running. Just plug in the receiver to your USB port and start using it. Then configure the buttons as you like from your control panel, just as you would with any mouse.

Receiver stows nicely into the bottom; compact size; easy setup.

Less comfortable than a full-size mouse.

A worthy alternative to a laptop's built-in pointing device, this downsized mouse is convenient for travel, but it sacrifices some comfort for its compact size.

Expert review by:

Microsoft Wireless Optical Mouse

 

Chunky RF mouse has an accelerating scroll wheel and comes in four colors.

People with large hands will like this mouse, especially if they favor a curvy design and a choice of colors.

Microsoft Wireless Optical Mouse

 

Priced at a reasonable $45 and available in a variety of shimmering colors, Microsoft's updated Wireless Optical Mouse may be the ideal everyday mouse. Plus, it's cord-free, so there's no need to worry about dreaded desktop entanglements.

Long battery life; easy to install; stylish design; innovative scrollwheel; ambidextrous.

Wordy instructions; no user manual.

Microsoft's new Wireless Optical Mouse is the ultimate choice for everyday mousing.

Though it's late to the portable-mouse party, the Microsoft Notebook Optical Mouse is the guest you've been waiting for. The device is a stylish silver gray with an internally lit, translucent red scroll wheel and contoured red side panels (also...
