Microsoft Wireless Desktop 3000

 

Even though I have come to rely on my notebook as my primary computer, I still use it in a desktop-like configuration when I'm working out of my home office. ...

BlueTrack mouse tracking technology ; Plenty of media controls and quick access keys ; Very comfortable experience overall ; A good value (when on sale)

Not of a fan of the black-and-white color scheme ; Keyboard is a little bit too small ; Prefer two buttons on thumb side for mouse ; No flashy built-in display, other features

Accompanying the keyboard and mouse are the compact USB mini-transceiver, four Energizer AA alkaline batteries, installation CD, and supporting documentation.

While the quality of Microsoft software offerings is debatable, Microsoft's hardware offerings are usually top notch. Today we are going to look at Microsoft's newest wireless desktop set, the Wireless Desktop 3000. Upon first glance, the Wireless...

Several shortcut keys ; Some of the shortcut keys work without installing the IntelliType Pro software ; Mouse has a ambidextrous design ; Comfortable to use for extended periods of time ; Spill resistant keys

F Lock ; No lock key status lights on keyboard itself ; Prone to interference from wireless networks ; Installation of the IntelliType software required to program and use all keys

Microsoft’s Wireless Desktop 3000 is a decent keyboard and mouse combo. The keyboard features many programmable keys and while the mouse is smaller than I would prefer, it is still comfortable to use for extended periods of time. However, the...

Microsoft Wireless Desktop 3000

 

The last year has seen several big releases from Microsoft's hardware department. Alongside a handful of webcams, they have also started releasing several new keyboards, mice and desktop sets focused around their new BlueTrack optical mouse tracking...

A fresh, new style for Microsoft hardware ; The keyboard has lots of features but styling is kept very simple and uniform ; Mouse uses Microsoft's new BlueTrack technology ; Compact sized, 2.4ghz USB receiver ; Fairly good price point for a set like this

Keyboard wrist rest felt like it was pulling my hands away because of it's slope ; When lifting the mouse to reposition it, the placement of the sensor caused it to still move my cursor

I'm glad to see Microsoft giving a fresh and stylish new look to their latest line of desktop perhipherals. The sleek lines and contrasting colours of both the mouse and keyboard in this set is guarenteed to catch eyes on any desk. However, I was...

Microsoft Wireless Desktop 3000 with BlueTrack

 

Microsoft throws in its 5000 mouse with a decent wireless keyboard for peanuts.

Overall, decent build quality and ergonomics together with Microsoft's exclusive BlueTrack sensor technology means you're getting a lot for your money here. Quite simply, if you're on a strict budget you're unlikely to find a better cordless mouse and...

Microsoft Wireless Desktop 3000 review

 

The Wireless Desktop 3000 has a fairly plain design, but the silver rim around the keyboard helps spruce things up. The keys have a decent spring to them, making them responsive and comfortable to type on.

Microsoft's Wireless Desktop 3000 kit is a great value option, although the mouse is not the best we've used.

Microsoft Wireless Desktop 3000

 

An affordable keyboard-mouse combo that performs well too

Keyboard is very comfortable to type on, good range, ambidextrous mouse, attractive pricing

Scroll wheel is a bit annoying, no status lights on the keyboard (Caps Lock, 'F' Lock, etc.)

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Best wireless combo I've found yet

 

This is the 2nd set I've bought. First set lasted over 5 years. Finally succumbed to normal abuse.

Proper 5 button mouse with a button on each side. Uses all AA batteries, keyboard has volume buttons. Keys and mouse function well

Function keys aren't grouped in quads like normal. Takes too long to figure out where F5 for refresh, or game keys like quicksave are. Scroll wheel doesn't roll in notches. It's fine for web scrolling, but TERRIBLE for list selection like in games, or...

Consumer review (newegg.com)

The price was decent

 

The keyboard isn't bad for just a basic keyboard.

Standard keyboard layout and size with some extras. Decent battery life. Mouse has a decent feel and slides smoothly

Scroll wheel is too small and touchy. I draft on a computer all day and needed something with better support for my hand, but I was unable to get used to the scroll wheel. I even used it for a few months to try and get the feel for it. But overall the...
