    Disappointed

    I was excited when I received my Microsoft - Natural Ergonomic Desktop 7000 Wireless Keyboard and Laser Mouse. Any time I can eliminate wires from my set-up I do it. I particularly like the laser mouse. I have really large hands that the size of this mouse fits perfectly and the positioning of the wheel and buttons could not be any better for its functionality. Also, the ergonomics of the keyboard are outstanding. Being wide shouldered, placing my hands on a typical keyboard was not very comfortable but the layout and curves of this one fits me like a glove. Now for the downside of the system and it is a really big down side..... Quite often when I am typing, characters do not appear on the screen leaving many incomplete words and sentences and often no inputs will display at all as if the keyboard is dead. I even moved the wireless USB receiver from the back of my computer to the front putting the keyboard within 18 inches of the receiver hoping it was a signal interference problem but the results were the same. Now, if it only happened occasionally it wouldn't be such a big deal but this happens all the time. and it's really quite annoying. I'm even fighting this issue as I type this review. Wish I would have gotten the ergonomic keyboard with the USB connector.

    Great for average use.

    I bought this Mouse/Keyboard combo with the plan to wirelessly Game from about a 6-8 foot distance. At first everything was smooth. The software installed very seamlessly and the mouse and keyboard picked right up and started working like a dream. In Internet Explorer, Word, Notepad it worked great. As soon as I started to run any Games both the mouse and the keyboard became very intermittent. Barely worked and was difficult to even close or minimize the games. Oddly enough when I minimized the games the keyboard and mouse worked fine just not while used in the games.

    Not up to par

    This keyboard is probably the worst wireless product I have ever owned, it drops signal multiple times every day requiring a reconnect. I love the style of keyboard so I am living with it, I have very large hands and the split keyboard puts my wrists at the perfect angle. The ergonomic keyboards that aren't split don't have enough room. If MS could get wireless down like Logitech then this would be a top notch product. Also, I did not want the mouse, just the keyboard but MS doesn't sell it that way.

    I use this setup for my day job (application development). I do a LOT of typing, so comfort is important. This is one of the most comfortable keyboards I've used, which is standard for Microsoft keyboards. The mouse is a bit large for my hand but it works well and I like the programmability of it (and the keyboard). I had to move the transceiver from the back of my workstation to the front because I was experiencing intermittent keyboard failures if I slid the keyboard around on my desk. Moving the transceiver seems to have corrected that issue.

    Excellent Key Board

    I have had my key board for over a year and it works perfectly! It does what it is supposed to do and I can work it from over 10 feet away, probably farther if the room was bigger. Never a problem with it, I’ve had to replace the one AA battery in the mouse a couple of times, they last about 6 months and have never replaced the ones in the keyboard. All the buttons work and are great short cuts, calculator, web home, search, mail etc. The only down side is the wimpy feet that prop it up. Well worth the money!

    Hardware pretty good, software horrible

    After spending a couple of hours with the keyboard hanging for 3-5 seconds after every mouse click, I went back to my old Logitech set. Then I uninstalled the lousy MS software and tried again with generic drivers - problem solved and Logitech re-retired. Both keyboard and mouse will take some getting used to. Mouse is too tall to stay in the keyboard tray when I slide it under the desk. Given the software problems, I could go as high as 4 stars someday. If I can get used to being ergonomically correct.

    Did not last 2 weeks at my home

    I like this combination but it did not last in my home environment. I used it apx 2 weeks - primarily weekends and evenings get the most use, when it died. I feel it was the receiver that went bad. Kudoos to BestBuy who made the refund/return process hassel free. I ordered another combo Microsoft Wireless model - but it too will have the flashdrive type receiver. Hopefully it will last!

    Feels clunky & TERRIBLE space bar

    All of the keys feel tight, like you have to push too hard, but the space bar is terrible. You have to hammer on it, and it doesn't always work. While I like the shape of the mouse, it, too, feels clunky and just a little too big. I've been using it about 2 weeks, but I'm going to see if I can return it because the space bar issue is just unacceptable!

    Weak Wireless Signal

    Range of wireless is not very good. Most times it will sit doing nothing no matter what you do....When Typing it is like the keyboard is not even on and then all of a sudden it will finally start working. Very aggravating when you are working on a deadline.
