Description
Add wireless freedom, stylish looks, and one-touch features to your desktop with the Wireless Optical Desktop Pro keyboard and mouse combination. This desktop package provides customizable keys, optical mouse technology, and a sleek, low-profile design. Also, your digital media activities are within easy reach--start, play, and navigate music and video clips with the touch of a button. Customizable hot keys let you quickly start Messenger, e-mail, Internet, and Calculator programs. And get one-touch access to files stored in the My Documents, My Pictures, and My Music folders in Windows. Perform common tasks right from your keyboard--press a button to open, close, save, send, and forward e-mails, put the computer to sleep, log off, and more. Press the F LOCK key to toggle between the standard and enhanced function key commands. The mouse's wider, clear scroll wheel allows you to comfortably move through documents and Web sites quickly without clicking the scroll bar. Accelerated scrolling reacts to how quickly you roll the wheel, saving you time and effort. And the optical sensor replaces your mouse ball, for accuracy and precision--no mouse pad needed. It's ambidextrous, too--whether you control it with your right or left hand, the Wireless Optical Mouse is shaped for comfort. Both the keyboard and mouse work within six feet of the included receiver, even if your computer is out of sight. The Wireless Optical Desktop Pro comes with a three-year warranty.

4 Star Review  Macworld.com - Feb 18, 2004

Who says input devices have to be mundane? A wireless mouse and keyboard not only provide the basic functionality that allows you to work with your computer, but also make your work much more pleasant.

4 Star Review   By member edster92 - Apr 20, 2005   

Strengths: looks good, software integrates well and easy to use

Weakness: no "back" and "forward" keys like the more expensive MS Optical Elite desktop, these are VERY handy keys when web surfing.

I got this for my wife's laptop and she didn't want to fork out the extra dough for the Elite desktop mentioned above, which I have for my desktop PC and truly love. However I got this one for less than half the price of the Elite, so I can't complain too much.

5 Star Review   By member yikes - Nov 1, 2004   

Strengths: compact, soft feel of the keyboard, precise/responsive mouse, good battery life on mouse, awesome battery life on keyboard, lots of short cut on keyboard, good software for MAC/PC.

Weakness: keyboard can be loud?

Okey, I have had this set for a long time now. It was my brother's personal recommendation that drove me to get this. I have not regret it since. set up was easy for both mac and pc. It just works. The keyboard has a soft and responsive feel to it. But be a bit too loud for my liking. The mouse is good and precise. Never had any trouble with either. The top row short cuts are actually useful and come pre-programed for mac and pc. Nice. I don't think I ever had to change the battery of the keyboard since I used it. Amazing. But the mouse batteries lasts about a month or two. I use rechargeable NiMH batteries. Overall, great product.

4 Star Review   By member zx9speedy - Feb 12, 2004   

Strengths: Keyboard is set up well, and I have had no problem with the mouse, it's works well with no freeze ups. Just add that software for the keyboard and its great.

Weakness: Well, not sure if there is any weaknesses will let you know if some ever show up.

Buy this keyboard, low cost and just as good as any of the the setup that cost a lot more. Some review talk of the mouse being unusable, but it has been just great for me. The keyboard has software just add it and its great.

2 Star Review   By member jsdata - Mar 11, 2003   

Strengths: Keyboard feels excellent and responsive, keys well shaped and spaced, comfortable to wrists. Good features.

Weakness: Mouse frequently locks. That is, moving the mouse (even many inches) produces no pointer movement. This happens so often that I cannot use the mouse, and I am about to return it.

Although the keyboard is excellent, the mouse is nearly unusable. I have tried using the mouse on many surfaces and the tendency to lock and not respond to movement occurred on all of them

3 Star Review   By member MrLefty - Jan 17, 2003   

Strengths: Good keyboard feel, many extra buttons.

Weakness: Mouse feels "slugish", neither component responsive enough for 1st-person shooters.

This keyboard/mouse combination has an excellent feel, and would recommend it for people that have light to normal computer use. The problem is the lag or sluggishness when playing arcade or 1st-person shooters. The components are rated to be able to work up to 6' away from the receiver (allowing you to hide the receiver), but all of the keyboard status lights (NumLock, CapLock, Flock) are on the receiver almost requiring you to keep it visible on your desk. Based on the competition from rival Logitech, this product will be replaced quickly by "next generation" product.
