Consumer review (newegg.com)

best keyboard I've found

 

I'm a software engineer, so I use quite a few keyboards. The MS 4000 wireless combo is horrible in comparison. The MS 4000 wired (a totally different keyboard from the wireless combo) has awful key action, but good ergonomics -- this combo has the same...

My main criteria is good key action and comfort. This keyboard has both. I wish I could find better but I can't. Ergonomics are good, it's not quite a split keyboard, so people that are used to either traditional or split can feel comfortable....

The wireless setup on the computer next to this one is also MS and sometimes blocks keys, even when "paired" to the right receivers. When my son (next to me) is playing a game with lots of arrow keys it can affect my keystrokes

Fair Mouse, poor keyboard

 

Go for something else.

It has a mouse and a keyboard

Cheap, cheap, cheap. I was used much better from MS. The key action is horrible. Good thing my co-worker uses it now. Also, the "dongle" is huge and ugly. Seen much better then that

Don't waste your time

 

I've used MS keyboards for the last 15 years and never had a problem or complaint. This one is garbage. Look elsewhere. Mouse also doesn't have back/forward buttons for the thumb. All in all, I'm very disappointed with both the keyboard and mouse.

Ergonomics are good. Uses old-style home key configuration. Wireless.

Very poor quality keyboard. Probably 20% of my keystrokes don't register with the keyboard.

Microsoft Wireless Keyboard 6000

 

Mouse works well. Ergonomic, precise. Quick, easy to use. If that's all it was, I wouldn't be writing this. But...

Keyboard is a joke ; Nobody with an elementary school education would want this. If you own a weapon, it would make good target practice. If you don't, use it to prop something up or perhaps as a doorstop that rattles. This is an insult to plastic. The...

just ok

 

i own three of these sets, so i guess that says something...

wireless, price is decent...nice feel to the keyboard and comfortable mouse

mouse is for righty's if that matters to you, range is poor (especially as batteries age), battery life is quite short. (replaced mouse batteries the first week i had them)
