Microsoft Wireless Desktop 800

 

The Microsoft Wireless Desktop 800 is a great no frills solid keyboard mouse combination packaged together for a great price. Extreme ease of installation with standard features make this keyboard and mouse a good choice for a non-tech savvy user as...

Microsoft Wireless Desktop 800 - Reliable and Affordable

 

An affordable performer, but it's not without its quirks.

The Microsoft Wireless Desktop 800 sells for Rs. 1,370, which means it’s not the cheapest wireless keyboard-mouse set in the market. It’s pretty good value for money in our opinion. We don’t like the cramped areas of the keyboard but with plenty of...

Microsoft Wireless Desktop 800 review

 

With its glossy surround, Microsoft's Wireless Desktop 800 looks good, but it's also susceptible to picking up unsightly fingerprints over time.

The keyboard has a slightly cramped design, but this is otherwise a decent desktop set from Microsoft

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Not worth the 20 bucks when it was on sale.

 

Cheap

Terrible range and input lag. The mouse works fine at about 4-7 feet. The keyboard with direct line of sight to the receiver barely works as I am typing this. It is about 18 inches away. I have an older version of this which works fine. I bought this...

Good, will buy again, but mouse has power switch, use or it will run down

 

Will buy it again. Compact, on the small side. I've had lots of troubles with Microsoft products, but looks like they fixed them. Borderline on 5 egg rating.

Very good range ~20 ft. No problems, even after many drops by my 7 yr. old. Keyboard doesn't have a power switch you need to turn on. Good layout. Good price.

Mouse can run down if left on, but not as quickly as another brand I've used. No lights on keyboard to show caps/num lock. -Tradeoff for not having switch.

Very disappointed with this perticular purchase

 

I purchased 1 of these about a year ago and it's still going strong. I liked it so much that I've recommended it and I've purchased an additional one as a gift.

2nd purchased as a gift is no good. 3 feet away and the keyboard fails to communicate. I've replaced the batteries and I've moved the USB dongle to the front of the computer but it continues to fail. Not happy.

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Waste of money

 

I bought this combo from another retailer a few months ago. Words do not adequately describe how much I hate the keyboard. The keys are mushy, the shift keys release too slowly (causing EXtra CApital LEtters), and in general I have more typos on this...

* Mouse doesn't suck as badly as keyboard. * I only wasted a small amount of money on it.

* Poor Bluetooth range * Mushy keys *Terrible keyboard layout * Crummy feel
