Microsoft Wireless Entertainment Desktop 7000

 

Microsoft has a sleek keyboard and mouse set that will make a perfect match for your shiny new Vista PC.

There’s another dedicated key with the Windows logo on the right – green instead of blue. This is designed to launch Windows Media Center, which is now included in most versions of Windows Vista.

When it comes to churning out decent keyboards, Microsoft still hold the aces

Great build quality ; Good value for money ; Bluetooth connectivity ; Lots of features

Microsoft Wireless Entertainment Desktop 7000 Review

 

Today we have the Wireless Entertainment Desktop 7000 from Microsoft! Take a look to see how this Bluetooth keyboard and mouse combo performs.

Rechargeable mouse with neat docking station ; Both mouse and keyboard are easy to use and react accurately ; Decent range using Bluetooth ; Bluetooth dongle will work with many other Bluetooth items ; Keyboard is a great one shot solution with mouse...

None that I can think of

So there we have it - the Microsoft Wireless Entertainment Keyboard 7000 and Wireless Laser Mouse 8000 are an exceptional team.

Microsoft Wireless Entertainment Desktop 7000 review

 

Microsoft's new $150 Wireless Entertainment Desktop 7000 mouse and keyboard set comes chock-full of the features we expect from a media-oriented input device package. From the long-range Bluetooth connectivity to the touch-sensitive keyboard cursor...

Media and cursor keyboard buttons make it easy to control your desktop from across the room.

Curved design adds little comfort and makes typing imprecise; keyboard doesn't grip your desk as well as it should.

Microsoft fits a number of useful features on to the keyboard in its new Wireless Entertainment Desktop 7000 set, but we're not sold. We'll give it credit for its easy-to-use media control buttons, but the keyboard lacks too much overall polish...

Review: Microsoft Wireless Entertainment Desktop 7000 Keyboard and Mouse

 

If you're left with a few shillings after a Vista OS upgrade, you may want to sink the rest of your cash into this sleek...

Less than an inch thick. Lightweight and sturdy. Elegant, uncluttered design. Mouse-emulating keyboard controls work perfectly. Keyboard enters sleep mode when you’re away to conserve battery power. Both mouse and keyboard sport battery life...

Small directional pad unresponsive at times, hard to use accurately. Keyboard isn’t rechargeable or backlit. No number pad, small arrow keys. A tad expensive

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.

Finally, Logitech beat Microsoft at its own game as far as operating system compatibility and ease of setup. We found setting up the Microsoft Bluetooth receiver and the desktop set's driver software easy enough, but it involved a multistep process of...

Microsoft Wireless Entertainment Desktop 7000

 

After living with an HTPC as a main source of television for months now I quickly learned that a wired mouse and keyboard just weren't going to cut it. In the world of wireless keyboards and mice there is an almost endless selection, a quick search on...

If you are hesitant about replacing your Media Center remote with a full keyboard and mouse solution you should really give the Wireless Entertainment Desktop 7000 a chance. It's clear that Microsoft designed this from the ground up for use with HTPC's...

Sleek Aluminum Design, 4 USB Ports, Charging Hub, Backlit keys, Features Best Suited for advanced versions of Vista, Windows Vista Certified
