Very solidly built wireless desktop set

I have previously used Microsoft Wireless Laser Desktop 6000 v3 (Black), with mixed results. The shape of the mouse for that combo was somewhat weird, although after getting used to it it turned out to be a very ergonomically satisfying experience. However, that mouse stopped working after not too long, and before that paint on the surface started to peel. So far I have not had any such problems with the Wireless Comfort 5000 mouse. The mouse is probably the most comfortable mouse that I have used so far. It is also very solidly built and it does not give off an impression that it could break down easily. Its elevated full-bodied shape fits extremely well in your hand. The mouse is also built in such a way that it can be used either by the left-handed or the right-handed users. The most amazing thing about this mouse is the range of surfaces on which it works. I have tested it on glass, bamboo-weaved placement mats, cloth and a bunch of other surfaces and each time the mouse performed flawlessly. The mouse bluetooth receiver is pretty small, but not as small as some of the most recent ones on the market. The receiver can be tucked-in to the mouse, and at that time the mouse is turned off. Since I always tend to lose the receiver when traveling, having it attached directly to the mouse is extremely useful.

The keyboard itself is very functional, well designed, and esthetically pleasing to look at. It is very ergonomic and easy to use. I tend to like more "clicky" feel to keyboard keys when typing, but otherwise this is a very well designed keyboard.

I have tried using the mouse and the keyboard with different computers without installing any of the software that comes on the included CD, and every time the computers were able to recognize them without any glitches. This was true of both Windows and Mac computers. The included software was easy to install on both Windows and Mac OS X systems, and it gives you more options to configure the mouse and the keyboard than you'll ever need.

Overall, for the price this is probably one of the best wireless desktop system on the market right now. I highly recommend it.
