I was looking to update an older PC with windows XP to a cleaner interface with a wireless combo. I bought the Microsoft wireless desktop 1000 but the keyboard was defective out of box so I rteturned it for the wireless desktop 800.
I was mainly looking for wire free hardware with a thin keyboard and shallow form since desktop space was limited. This provided both.

On opening the box I notice that it does not have an installation CD. The installation process on the one page setup manual is basically a three step process, insert batteries in keyboard and mouse, plug receiver into usb port and turn on the power switch on the mouse. (keyboard doesn't have a power switch)
The receiver is a nano receiver so its tiny and inobtrusive, the 1000 model has a mouse size receiver with a usb courd on the end.
The battery life is 15 months for the Keyboard and 8 months for the mouse which is a lot better than the more expensive 1000 model.
Range is listed at 15 feet with no degradation within that distance.
The mouse is only a three button mouse, its a little on the light side, but the (2)AA's inside helps alot. It does have an on/off switch which is great to make the batteries last even longer. The Keyboard does not have an on/off switch.
Neither the Keyboard nor mouse has a "connect" button, they are both ready to go as soon as the batteries are in and nano is inserted. Keyboard uses (2) "AAA" and the mouse uses (2) "AA". The Keyboard is black on the top side and white on the bottom, but its hard to tell unlees you're looking at it at a low angle ... or flip it over of course.
The set works great without drivers on XP it should be the same or better with Windows 7.

First, a summary: This is a solid wireless desktop, and works great for 'couch gaming' with a big screen and a 'lapdesk' (I use the Belkin CushDesk). IMO, it works amazingly well considering its price! I have tried many sets that develop keyboard lag during a session, or 'lose signal' after time or distance and require a reset. This one runs for hours without issue. It also seems to have more than the advertised 10-foot range (Microsoft probably advertises the shorter distance on the box because it's their bottom-end product, and they don't want to compete with their higher end stuff - probably the same RF gear in all of them). On top of that, it looks nice, with a black piano finish.

Keyboard details: The keyboard supports at least 4 simultaneous keypresses at once, and usually more, depending which keys you press. 4 keys is plenty - I have no issues in 'WADS-style' FPS's. In my keypress test, it often bested my old school PS/2 keyboard!

This keyboard has what I'll call a 'compressed standard' layout. This means the space between the key 'banks' has been removed - all the usually separated key groups are smashed together. I thought this would suck, but it turns out to work OK. All the punctuation keys are in the right place both in the main bank and the 'side banks', and at least within each bank the keys are properly spaced relative to each other. The layout and relative placement being 'standard' is a big plus for gaming, and the 'interior space removal' is not a big deal. The compressed layout is a good thing for a cramped working area or a lapdesk, but why didn't they trim more size around the outer edge? A wasted opportunity to give it an even smaller footprint.

The keyboard and mouse work just fine, work for basic gaming and is completely plug and play.

However, one warning. We had our receiver plugged into the USB port and one of the times we pulled it out the plug part stayed in the USB port and the circuit board and part you grab onto just pulled right out of it. I called Microsoft to get a replacement part and was promptly told that the warranty does not cover the receiver and if I want to replace it I will have to purchase a new set, regardless of the fact that my item is still well under warranty.

So in short, it works fine but if it breaks Microsoft's customer support is terrible. I would just find a Logitech of the same price instead. You will get similar quality but my experiences with Logitech support have been much better.

For the price, its a resonably good functioning product. No hoakey features, spaced out forms. In fact I bought a 2nd one. Other than the small top function keys, there are keys mapped to Microsoft calculator, audio controls and PrtScrn, ScrnLock. Wireless capability makes things a little easier. Its plug & play allright. Stick the bluetooth adapter into a USB port, wait 20 seconds, you have a wirless keyboard/mouse. The feel of the keys is good. I was using the HP slimline PC keyboard that I did not like b/c you had to press each key all the way. I found myself always retyping b/c many keys did not take. This keyboard elininates that, making typing faster. The mouse is sensitive enough - not overly. I do not experience jumpy mouse, losing my mouse or sticky mouse behavior. So I like that too. The size and form is good. I've found certain things are best left in the most common form. Any "innovative" form factor ends up a distraction.
1. There is no CAPS LOCk or NUM button lights.
2. The low battery indicator light (I guess) will come on when due. Presently there is no green light to indicate battery is OK.
