Keyboard and mouse – how uninteresting does that sound? Quite a bit. On a second thought, when was the last time you saw a review on a keyboard and mouse? In fact, I dare to say that the keyboard and mouse must be one of the most underestimated computer parts out there. “It’s just a keyboard” I hear many of you say, but the truth is that you use it every time you use your computer, and the quality, the functionality and to many, also the design, is important, so in this review, we’ll take a closer look at Microsoft’s new Wireless Optical Desktop.

What’s included with this kit

- Wireless IntelliType Keyboard
- Wireless Optical IntelliPoint Mouse
- Receiver with USB/PS2 connectors
- Driver CD
- Installation manual

Compatibility

The product is compatible with both Windows 9X, NT 4.0 SP6 or higher as well as Mac OS8.6 to 9.x, 10.1(excluding 10.0). Note that NT 4.0 does not support USB, so you’ll have to use PS2. More information about compatibility can be found on this page.

First impression

I’ve had quite a few keyboards, some good and some very, very bad. The feeling I got when I opened the package was noting less than expected – the feeling of really great quality and a sleek design in matt black and silver.

Installation

The manual has a very thorough step-by-step description on how to do this, but if you have some experience with computers, it is not very likely you will ever need to even open the manual. The installation process took only a few minutes, and was basically a non-event, as the standard Installation Wizard guided you through it nicely.
