Advanced Ergonomics Meets Advanced Technology.

Reduce strain and make time with your computer more enjoyable by using the Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Desktop 7000, a combination of the most advanced ergonomic designs for a keyboard and mouse. By resting your arms, wrists, and hands in a more natural position, you reduce pressure on sensitive areas, such as your carpal tunnel, and the potential for injuries resulting from unhealthy posture. In addition, you can take advantage of technology advancements with this keyboard and mouse set and work from up to 30 feet away from your computer with wireless technology. For close-in tasks, use the zoom slider located in the middle of the keyboard to easily zoom in and out by touching your finger on it. Breeze through documents, media files, and webpages easily by using the four-way tilt-scroll wheel on the mouse, aided by the precision and accuracy of industry-leading, high-definition laser technology.

3 out of 5 eggsHit... and miss

Pros: Great ergonomics.
Based on an already good design
Riser can keep your wrists up even while on the wrist wrest.
useful hot keys

Cons: Mouse is a bit awkward at first, although you do get used to it. The keyboard is based on the awesome microsoft 4000 keyboard, it looks nearly identical as well so i expected it to be the same, but wireless.

Not the case, the keys are looser, more spongy with a less attractive feel. There is also a delay issue, where keys occasionally do not type for a short period then all appear at once. On rare occasions a key will "double type" and i will get two keystrokes out of a single press.

The mouse drags a bit hard on my wood table, so it takes a bit of force to move it around, more so than other mice i have used. Almost as if the bottom was more rubberized and causing resistance.

The mouse middle click on mine does work, but is VERY finicky, it's bad enough that middle click isn't easily usable.

Other Thoughts: It's giant, but for what it is, i can't call that a con, just something to be aware of.

I moved to this unit from the Microsoft 4000 keyboard and am really disappointed that quality and feel of the keys just isn't there. Since this new keyboard is "softer" i almost wonder if perhaps it was even done on purpose? Maybe some people out there prefer this feel, but if that is the case i am certainly not one of them.

With the mouse middle click being so finicky i will likely switch out the mouse. I would normally return for a new one, but since i don't like the way it drags and i'm not in love with the shape, i see no reason.

Even with the shortcomings, i love the functionality of the keyboard in general enough that i will likely keep using it. The keystroke issue has only happened a few times in days, and i'll get used to the spongy keys. I love the keyboard for its height, split, riser.

1 out of 5 eggsPoor connectivity

Pros: Cool feature set with many programmable hot keys

Cons: Key board and mouse routinely lose the wireless connection-- enough to drive you crazy.

Problem observed on both a Dell Optiplex Core2Duo machine running XP Pro, and on my new i7 3770k machine with 16 GB RAM, ASUS Sabertooth Z77 mobo, 128 GB 840 Pro SSD running Win7 Pro.

The proximity of the wireless dongle to the keyboard and mouse plays no role in this issue (front/back ports tested, with computer above and below my desk).

Based on monitoring network activity on both computers used, the issue appears related to a bad driver for the mouse and keyboard. Consistently, the mouse and keyboard connection temporarily drops out when data is being pushed/pulled from the internet via my wired LAN connection. The problem can be fixed by unplugging from the network, which is not really a solution.

I do not find the mouse particularly comfortable to use, and I prefer the tactile experience of a different popular keyboard brand-- I wish that company still made a split keyboard model.

Other Thoughts: Yes, I have downloaded the latest drivers from MS. I recommend avoiding this piece of garbage. Or, keep your eyes peeled, you may find a free one flung from an office window.

BTW, a co-worker likes his wired version of the keyboard.

3 out of 5 eggsNot great!

Pros: Ergonomic design and layout is nice. Fairly comfortable keyboard and mouse.

Cons: Loud and the connection stability isn't all that great. I use a large screen and am not directly right in front of it, however I am only 4 feet away, and it doesn't continually stay connected very well.

4 out of 5 eggsOverall good keyboard

Pros: Nice feel, palm rest is very comfortable. I seem to type so much better on this keyboard.
I have been using this style mouse forever and have always liked it.

Cons: No Caps Lock or Num Lock indicator lights on keyboard. Strange since I have never seen a keyboard like that. Benefits is improved battery life or so I read. When you have to key in a ton of passwords a day though its nice to know when the caps are on.

Other Thoughts: Probably software that would allow the indicators to show up on screen but haven't checked for that yet.

3 out of 5 eggsLinux users Get a new mouse!!!!

Pros: Keyboard is a step up from other natural keyboards, Nice feel etc.

Cons: MOUSE is a Linux piece of c r a p.

If you are not using a unix desktop at all then perhaps it is an ok mouse. the egg takes getting used to.

As a unix workstation mouse (GUI) it is just a bout worthless the middle key wheel is hard to press for paste function and thus you either get no paste or a move x lines and paste.

I have had to purchase a new mouse since 60% of my work is done in remote Linux vnc session.

5 out of 5 eggs7000 wireless keyboard/mouse

Pros: Win7 recognized but full driver download on Microsoft site. Best shaped mouse Microsoft or anyone has made! Keyboard is good but you must familiarize with split keyboard. Everything seems solid on this recent build unlike Win8 for touch tablets being sold for desktops!! ouch

Cons: Expensive. Keyboard combos are good quality for less money and this is new but much needed. Microsoft lost a lot of customers not coming out with this sooner!!! Duh, sumbuddy at Microsoft is afraid of making mistakes! I guess sumbuddy was absent from Win8 release???
Some with small hands might find this mouse big but I like it.

Other Thoughts: I am used to a split keyboard so I really love this product. I use rechargeable batteries so I don't mind replacing them every couple of months. Thanks Microsoft for a good product release!

5 out of 5 eggsMy favorite

Pros: (1) Easily the most comfortable keyboard I have used. Others tell me its split design throws them off. But I love it. Being a less then perfect typist, I find the split helps me know where the keys are better, and so I type a bit better. I also have had some issues on other keyboards with nerve irritation from too much use. Along with some other ergonomic adjustments, I have been doing much better on this keyboard.

(2) I love the programmable soft keys of the keyboard. Granted, some others do this too. But I have found the soft keys here to be very flexible and robust (function is maintained across virtually all software I use).

(3) The mouse is a very close second to my favorite mouse of all time (a certain "logical, revolutionary" mouse). It has almost all the same functionality, and a similarly comfortable (but slightly different) feel. This MS mouse has a much taller body than most, turning your wrist into a more natural position -- closer to shaking hands than playing Ouija. I do tend to bump the "back" button a bit more often than I like, (when first reaching over for the mouse) but overall, I still really like this mouse. Very comfortable, and functional. The one thing the Logitech Revolutions mouse has that this lacks is the instant search on selected text. Love that feature.

(4) The wireless connection on this set has been very robust. I have it jacked into my laptop on top of my desk, with the keyboard under the desk on a pull-out tray, and the mouse off to the right of the laptop --the laptop's USB ports are on the left, so the wireless signal has to bounce around the laptop to reach the mouse. I have not had any lag or dropped connections using this for a year or two, maybe 8+ hours a day. (It's on my work set-up.)

Cons: I wish you could buy just the wireless 7000 keyboard without the mouse. Even though I like the mouse a lot (using it at work all day), I like that "logical revolutionary" mouse even better (using it at home), and plan to keep it, even after upgrading my home setup from the wired to this wireless keyboard.

Other Thoughts: I'm not totally bummed out about this only being sold as a pair (KB+mouse) because I can always use the MS 7K mouse as a backup when I have to dock my Revolutions mouse to recharge its batteries. (The MS mouse uses two regular AAs, which seem to last about a year, under heavy use, and always left turned on.)

1 out of 5 eggsFrustrating

Pros: Good action, comfortable palm rest, excellent layout.

Cons: KB wireless intermittently cuts out, making me rage.

Other Thoughts: Really frustrated because there aren't a lot of split wireless keyboards out there. If you are having KB drops, move your wifi router as far away from the USB dongle as possible, and keep LoS between the dongle and the KB -- that helps.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Idk.. i do not own that particular model.

Cons: Will never buy another Microsoft product again. What happened is that i broke the transceiver (the little usb thing that you use to connect the keyboard and mouse to the PC)
Called microsoft (around 10 times on 10 different phone numbers and finally they provided the correct number which i had to call) After calling they informed me that they do not sell the Transceiver separately so now i need to buy new KB and mouse.....

Just so you know logitechs products use universal transceivers (called the unifying receiver) that you can connect up to 5 devices with.. So yeah go with logitech.... plus logitech has 1.000.000 times better customer service

Other Thoughts: GO GO LOGITECH :)

4 out of 5 eggsDo not connect usb dongle in the back of a metallic case

Pros: Great customizable wireless keyboard with a great layout for someone using a computer daily for typing/coding in Windows OS.
The wireless mouse is comfortable for a large right handed person

Cons: Faced serious issue with connectivity on my personal build with the receiver dongle attached to a rear USB port on my HAF922 case. When booting up system did not detect either keyboard nor mouse so I could do nothing in BIOS. It should be mentioned my WiFi access point is very close to the computer, so some interference could be the issue.

However I connected a USB 2.0 hub and attached the receiver dongle thereto - this solved my connectivity problem and now I really enjoy the wireless comfort using this package.

Other Thoughts: Keep in mind the mouse is entirely for right handed mouse operator.
Bad reception with keyboard/mouse non-responsive, see cons review for a possible solution.
