|I have looked at several of the new Microsoft BlueTrack mice since they debuted and have found them to perform well enough. Today we are going to look at Microsoft's first wireless desktop system to feature a BlueTrack mouse called the Wireless Desktop 3000. The desktop combines a BlueTrack mouse with a wireless keyboard packed full of features. Read on to find out how well the Wireless Desktop 3000 performs....read the full review|
We needed a wireless keyboard and mouse in our conference room. This is great.
I've used this for 2 weeks. Works great. No problems found so far.
This is our new house reliable keyboard and mouse. it works every time with no issues.
I am a fast typer (100 wpm) and this keyboard works really well for me. The keys are well-sprung with good spacing. Blue Trac mouse is excellent.
The design is really excellent. I was looking for a low profile wireless keyboard with a full set of keys. While this is hardly an Apple keyboard, it is still very thin and looks nice.
MS 3000 keyboard and mouse1/29/2011
I like the keyboard, it is very easy to type on and the key action feels responsive...not like the Apple keyboard it replaced. I liked the Apple keyboard for it's size and looks but when I had lots of data to input, I moved to this keyboard. I use it on a iMac and one thing I really, really like is that the mouse doesn't suddenly jump from one spot to another on the screen. My other MS mice and my two Logitech mice, while great on my PC didn't track well on a Mac. So if you are looking for a good to near great Mac keyboard replacement I would look at this combo. If as another reviewer said, you need function keys, then look elsewhere, these are very small. I don't use them, so no loss for me. But they are small. The mouse feels nice and "back" button the side is easy to use and actually work in the Mac OS...some don't. If it were again about 30 bucks, I'd buy another. Definitely wish it had strong backlighting, but not at available at this price point I'm sure. Overall, a good combination built around being above average in function and the Mac compatibility is great.
Just say NO to the worst keyboard in history!1/3/2011
I've never written a review here before, and I didn't even buy this from here, but I logged in here just in hopes of saving someone else from making the same mistake I did. This keyboard is the *all time worst* keyboard I have ever used. If you ever use function keys, or care if your caps lock key is pressed, then this keyboard is ANTI-productive. The function keys are miniscule. They are not laid out in groups of four, with spaces in between. They are not clearly labeled. Who decided it was time to change *everything* about how function keys look and feel? I read a few reviews (unfortunately, after I had already made the embarrassing mistake of purchasing this sham) saying that the lack of caps lock indicator on the keyboard itself "wasn't that bad" but it's simply inexcusable. Just say no. If all you ever do is stay on home row, then you might be able to get by with this keyboard. But the moment you venture off, this keyboard will make sure that you take your eyes off of what you're doing, and ensure that you have to squint to even find the function key you're after. Simply ... terrible.
I haven't used this keyboard extensively yet, but so far I'm very satisfied with it's performance. I haven't found anything yet that I can make an negative comment about. I'd buy another one at the price if there was a need.
Best Quality Wireless Keyboard and Mouse9/7/2010
I looked around at Logitech and Microsoft and this was the best value / performance I found during late July. I've used the keyboard and mouse now for over a month and have had no issues. Performance is very good. I have no issues with keyboard input or mouse delay. I play several RTS games and the keyboard and mouse perform great. I would buy again. Only criticism is the white bottom on both the keyboard and mouse. I would gladly upgrade if they both came in all black.
The mouse and keyboard are extremely easy and comfortable to use. Battery life on both mouse and keyboard are amazing. I have not replaced the batteries on the mouse since last one month. Great value for money product.
