        Comments about Microsoft Wireless Desktop 2000 Keyboard and Mouse:

        This model of keyboard and mouse combo works as it is intended to in my Windows 7, 64-bit system.

        I really like the fact that I can customize some of the top most keys on the keyboard to open specific programs.

        The only thing I miss are the two side buttons which I had in the old MS mouse, but I'll get used to this one not having them.

        Overall, I concider this to be a 5 star wireless desktop combo.

        By Gator78

        from Bethlehem, PA

        Comments about Microsoft Wireless Desktop 2000 Keyboard and Mouse:

        Full size keyboard for my couch and recliner. Laptop hooked up to large screen TV. Very comfortable keyboard on lap. Noce wrist extender. Perfect size. Solid keys. Immediate response. Great mouse. Regular size. Roll it on couch cushion. Couch arm. Even pants leg. No problem with range. Only negative: no caps lock indicator but you'll get over it. Great price for combo and works flawlessly.

                    Keyboard is OK, but the mouse is very erratic. I changed batteries twice, and followed the troubleshooting suggestions on the Microsoft website. I plan to return this combo setup and
                    exchange it for a Logitech keyboard and mouse.
