I needed a keyboard which could provide ergonomic support for my hands. This keyboard is comfortable, the position of the keys is good (once you get used to the change), and the keys require just the right amount of pressure. I just wish it were a bit shorter so I could use my mouse in my keyboard tray beside my keyboard. However, almost every other full sized keyboard is wider than this one, so it is really the fault of the person who designed the width of the keyboard tray on my desk (18 3/4 inches).

I liked the keyboard and the mouse ... until I hooked them up. The range is limited. From 4' away, the cursor control was jumpy. I had to use a USB extension cable to bring the receiver dongle to within 2' for it to be usable. The keyboard was warped so that it rocked when you typed unless you put a spacer under one corner. Microsoft must be doing something funny with the key/mouse software to cater to Windows 7. Although they functioned in IE and other Microsoft apps, in many of my programs, the function keys didn't do anything, and the scroll wheel didn't zoom/scroll, etc. I went into the control panel but couldn't find any way to get it to work normally. By comparison, a cheaper package from Logitech worked perfectly right out of the box -- F keys worked, scroll wheel worked, etc. And, even with their dongle plugged into the back of the PC on the floor behind my desk, I can mouse all the way from the bathroom 25' away ... if the need arises :<) .

Good Features for money

By Bill

Comments about Microsoft Wireless Comfort Desktop 5000:

Sometimes difficult to find a good keyboard for Mac that isn't made by Apple. This one fills the bill. Almost all the features work on my Powerbook. Being wireless means I can sit back with the keyboard on my lap and the curved keyboard is (surprisingly) easier to use than a straight one. The mouse has great features (basically 4 buttons and a scrolling wheel) but works fine as a 1 or two button mouse. Although not unique to this keyboard, the number pad is an important feature. Since I am using it with a laptop without that feature it is a great addition.

Love my new wireless keyboard and mouse

By nanniebarb

Comments about Microsoft Wireless Comfort Desktop 5000:

I love my new wireless keyboard and mouse. It allows me to type at a distance from my computer. I would have given it a 5 star rating, but the mouse is bulky. I like a smaller mouse. I am still very pleased with the combination and would gladly recommend it to anyone. I like the wrist rest at the bottom of the keyboard. I have carpal tunnel and arthritis in both hands and this helps eleviate some of the stress while typing. I also like the fact that the special commands are written on the bottom of the keys (i,e, copy , paste, save, print, bold, undo, redo etc.) I have trouble remembering the shortcuts and this will really come in handy. The curved keyboard is curved just the right amount to be comfortable.

Won't more than 1 year 2 months

By Jay

Comments about Microsoft Wireless Comfort Desktop 5000:

I bought two of these keyboards and put them through heavy gaming use. I never had issues with the keyboard while they functioned. However, like clockwork they will stop working after a year and 2 months.

The first one I got two years 2 months ago last year. I enjoyed the keyboard so I bought another and figured maybe this time it would be better... wrong. 1 year and 1 month later that one broke as well.

Lesson learned, when looking for a good keyboard, stick with wired and stick with Razor, themaltake, madcatz, and corsair. Microsoft hardware is junk.

good feel, disappointing performance

By Sharon

This customer has reached Intern level on the Staples.com Leaderboard

Comments about Microsoft Wireless Comfort Desktop 5000:

This combo was the right size, full featured and well reviewed. Love the size and the features, but the keyboard and mouse performance are both quite poor. The keyboard occasionally lags and often adds keystrokes I have verified that I do not hit, The mouse has an excellent feel and I wish I could keep it, But the performance is poor on both movement and clicking. Frustrating to play even a slow game. I will say that it does work on all surfaces, which was a strong selling point. It works on glass as well as a tracking surface. Taking this combo back to Staples tomorrow. :-(
