        Recently I tried to access my boot menu in Windows 7 only to realize that my wireless keyboard device driver is in the OS, not the BIOS. If you noticed those 'press F 10' messages that you see before your Operating System logs in; you need a wired keyboard to use them. An absolute necessity for any 'techie' is a wired keyboard. This one has cool new features over my current wireless board.

        I love this keyboard. The key touch is awesome. It is a great keyboard for anyone who is just wanting a simple keyboard that is well organized and a good feel. The button for the calculator is a super addition to this keyboard and saves strokes for anyone who likes to use the calculator on a regular basis. I highly recommend this keyboard.

          Comments about Microsoft Wired Keyboard 600:

          I ordered this basic Microsoft keyboard to replace an older keyboard.

          This keyboard is an OUTSTANDING product. It has additional keys for Media Controls and it also has a built-in shortcut to display Windows Calculator on the screen. It has a nice "small footprint" to save work space.

          After two weeks of heavy use, I really cannot find anything that detracts from my first impression. With respect to any comments about "What things there are that are not so great"....I can't think of ANY!

          One does not have to invest in such expensive keyboards when this one does basically ALL the necessary functions one might need for the average end user.

          I also have to admit that B&H is my FAVORITE for purchasing any electronic or PC components because they have GREAT prices, OUTSTANDING Customer Service, a Great Web Site, and SUPER FAST SHIPPING consistently! The items ship so fast that I almost think they hand carry the items directly to the airport terminal as soon as the transaction is completed! In many years of purchasing items from B&H, they have given me an absolute level of confidence that they ARE the Professionals in the business. Every item within their line of products is TOP QUALITY.

          Thank you for MAKING MY DAY....to provide me with the BEST shopping experience I have ever had online.

                I do a lot of gaming and web surfing. The keys have a nice texture to them, the key board has the larger Backspace key and an Enter key that is not "L" shaped; my preferred setup. The keys are between a laptop and standard.
                Only two things make this a 4/5 rating. The F-keys are small, and I would like a better knob on the index finger home keys.

                      Can't complain for the price paid. Keyboard feels well-built and solid. There are obviously more technologically advanced keyboards out there for those who want to splash out, but if you want a straightforward, reliable keyboard that will get the job done, you can do a lot worse than the MS K-600.

                          I do a lot of programming, so I was a bit put out when my last keyboard (something generic bought at a leading electronics outlet) gave up the ghost.

                          After reading some reviews I decided to go with the Wired Keyboard 600 from Microsoft. As it turns out, having my last keyboard die was a blessing in disguise as the new one is very quiet and compact. The essential functions are all there, as well as some others like the ever-useful calculator shortcut. Would I buy this keyboard again? I doubt it, since it looks sturdy enough to last a long time (at least until manufacturers switch from USB to something else).

                          This is a plain vanilla (well, licorice) wired USB keyboard. It doesn't have a lot of extra features. What it does have is a quality feel, with just the right amount of tactile feedback.

                          It is a very efficient size. Uncrowded, yet quite compact to fit on a messy desktop if necessary. Having used it, I think it would be a remarkable value at twice the price--but don't tell Mr. B. or Mr. H. I said that!

                          If that were all it had, it would be sufficient. But Microsoft also included handy Play/Pause, Vol. Up, Vol. Down, Mute, and Calculator keys. These all came up working in Win7 without having to load any software. I just plugged it in and pressed the calculator button and there was the calculator. No fanfare.

                          See, I told you Bill Gates is a nice guy!

                                For the price this keyboard is awesome. The keys are very comfortable and they are not loud. I do not mind the wire since its connected to my desktop all day. Also the volume and calculator buttons are pretty cool for this being a basic keyboard

                                  We use our computer every day for two very important activities: recording music and playing video games (role-playing and FPS). After wearing out a ton of other similarly-priced keyboards, this has been the only one that we will definitely buy again when and if it breaks in a year. The typing feel is smooth + quiet, and the shape is slim without any of the extra media buttons you never need anyway. It is light but feels like a high-end product. Most compact keyboards skimp on usability, but the design on this actually makes it preferable to most full-size keyboards I've owned.
