Microsoft Wireless Desktop 800 Review

Key features

  • Reasonably priced when compared to many keyboard and mouse sets
  • Dedicated keys for commonly used functions such as calculator and media player
  • Wide roaming distance of up to 30 feet
  • Hassle free setting up

Introduction

The Microsoft Wireless Desktop 800 is a practical combination of mouse and keyboard that redefines convenience while keeping the costs low. This combination comes with a wireless keyboard, a wireless mouse, a small USB transceiver and two sets of batteries. The keyboard uses the smaller AAA batteries while the mouse uses the AA batteries. One good thing about the design is the provision on the mouse for storing the transceiver when it is not in use. This ensures that you don’t lose it as you travel owing to its small size. You also get a status indicator that tells you when the battery needs replacing so you will never be caught off-guard. According to Microsoft, these batteries are supposed to give you 8 months of average use before they need replacement. Another good thing about the Microsoft Wireless Desktop 800 is the setting up process. This is a plug and play device that will not need you to install any software first before you can use it. You just need to insert the batteries in the respective devices, plug in the USB transceiver and you will be all set.

Is it wireless ?

Like the name suggests, the Microsoft Wireless Desktop 800 will allow you to enjoy convenience without having to worry about wires. The range given by Microsoft is 30 feet (10 meters). This means that you can use the mouse or keyboard within 30 feet of your computer without any interference. This is particularly helpful when you are using the keyboard and mouse to control a media computer. The screen can be a safe distance away while you enjoy watching your movie or listening to music conveniently from the couch without worrying about cables. When not in use it will not be a bother due to the absence of wires.

Is it ergonomic ?

The top part of the keyboard is black and it has a slanting profile with the highest part being the function keys on the topmost row of the keyboard. The back part is white and slopes inward. All the corners of the keyboard are curved to give an elegant design. The entire bezel on this keyboard has a glossy finish. Unlike the bezel, the keys have a matte finish that is nice under the fingers. They will also not attract fingerprints or dust as much as the shiny bezel. The mouse is ergonomically designed for use by both right handed or left handed people. There is no dominant primary side in the design. The curved shape makes it easy to use and hold. You also get a scroll when to quickly go through lists without touching the keyboard. Other than the really small function keys, the other keys on the keyboard have been ergonomically designed with decent key travel and are comfortable to use.

Conclusion: Should I buy it ?

With lots of hot keys and a large range, this keyboard is a good idea for use with a media computer in the home or office. It’s also quite affordable hence a good value for money. The only concern is the small top row keys. That aside, it gives good value for money.

  • The Good :
    Affordable, long range, long battery life
  • The Bad :
    Small function keys
