It worked fine out of the box for me with Windows 7 64-bit. Out of habit and curiosity, I downloaded the Microsoft Keyboard and Mouse Control Center software to see if I could fine tune anything, program keys, etc... With the software installed a lot of bad things happened. First, the mouse scroll wheel started taking giant steps per click, skipping over parts of documents. Second, keyboard key programming didn't work at all. Third, the program was supposed to enable the display of capslock and numlock on the monitor, but it did not. I uninstalled it and installed intellipoint and had the same scroll issue. I tried a number of solutions from Microsoft's website but nothing helped. Uninstalling everything was the best solution. I can live without a capslock indicator and keyboard macros, I guess. They keys have a funny contour, hard to describe but the A row is a little lower than the other rows. Turns out I kind of like that, it helps my fingers hunt keys... I'm a touch typist and sometimes I accidently start on the wrong row.
I have both this model and the Logitech MK270 keyboard mouse combo. Some differences are that the Logitech keyboard does not have a side border/bezel so it has a smaller perimeter than Microsoft's. Logitech keyboard has an on/off switch but Microsoft's doesn't. Logitech keyboard border texture is the same as the keys (the matte feeling) while Microsoft's border is very smooth and of different texture than the matte keys. The natural angle of Logitech keyboard is flatter than Microsoft's. Therefore with the extended legs, Logitech's keyboard is also still at a lower angle than Microsoft's. Underside of Logitech keyboard is gray while underside of Microsoft keyboard is white. Logitech mouse is smaller and makes your hand shape rounder, while Microsoft mouse is bigger/longer and makes your hand flatter. Both mice and keyboard have satisfying typing sounds and clicks though, so it really depends on how much space you'd like on your desk!
I will try to post a picture of this mouse next to another mouse to show the difference.
