[Update: I've downgraded my rating to 3 stars because the keyboard amd mouse started having connectivity problems.]
- Decent Wireless Range
The effective wireless range for both the keyboard and mouse is about 15 ft. Beyond that, the response from the keyboard and mouse becomes sporadic. Still, it's a decent range and will suit the needs of most people.
- Ergonomic Mouse
I love how the shape of the mouse allows me to "hug" it with my entire hand, and it fits very snugly and comfortably. Its ergonomic shape, coupled with the support I get from my wrist rest, really helps to alleviate strain on my wrist. As far as ergonomics is concerned, I'm surprised that I actually find myself liking it a fair bit more than my Logitech MX Revolution.
- Ergonomic Keyboard
The slight curvature of the rows of keys for the QWERTY part of the keyboard helps to accommodate the natural position of your wrist. This is my first Microsoft "Natural" keyboard and I must say it has completely dispelled my skepticism of Microsoft's so-called "Natural" keyboard design. I find that it does work as claimed in helping to properly align your wrist so you can work more comfortably.Read more ›
The first improvement I noticed with the 6000 series is that you no longer have the big transceiver which will sometimes move and make it so you end up losing your wireless signal. Microsoft has now integrated the transceiver into a device which is the size of a thumb drive and plugs directly into your USB socket. The result of this (along with the better wireless technology) is hardly any signal loss so you always feel confident that things will happen instantaneously when you press a key or move the mouse.
To install the keyboard and mouse you plug in the transceiver, press the silver button and then the white signal buttons on the bottom of the mouse and keyboard and it will auto detect them. You can also install everything using the software included.
The 6000 keyboard is very sleek in design; it is about an inch thick at most and very lightweight. The main keyboard area is similar to the 3000 but there are a lot more `quick keys' around the outer area. Some of the new ones are `magnify' which lets you enlarge screen detail, `my favorites' which is a way to make your own set of personal keys and `flip 3D' which displays a 3D overlay of all open windows and lets you cycle through them. Another cool addition is the battery status indicator so you know when your batteries are running low. The keyboard itself is very responsive and when you press the keys it feels effortless instead of feeling numb and unresponsive like so many keyboards. The built in ergonomic wrist rest helps it feel a lot more comfortable.Read more ›
Now lets move to the mouse. While the keyboard is silent, the mouse is ridiculously loud when you click the right or left button. People in the cubicles around you will know about every click you do. Yet the mouse wheel has no click or any sort of tactical feedback (I hate a free spinning mouse wheel). The shape is okay, but it's unacceptable for gaming and I prefer the normal mouse shape to this right-hand only contraption.Read more ›

I've been using this keyboard for a very long time (over 8 years or so). Never had carpel tunnel problems or any hand problems. I use it about 10 hours a day.Published 2 months ago by Qbert5150
Have used several years -- great product. Probably more capability than anyone needs, but certainly well worth it.Published 4 months ago by Larry J. Schrock
keys keep locking up. Typing is interrupted and time is lost trying to correct mistakes made by type overs and elimination. A fix is needed.Published on July 20, 2014 by Bob L.

I am pretty sure that this is not a real Microsoft product. There were characters spray painted onto the keys and it was not recognizable by my computer. BEWARE of fakes!Published on August 14, 2013 by BarronGames
