Product Review: Microsoft Wireless Laser Keyboard 6000 V2.0

A while back in March we did a product review: Microsoft Wireless Laser Keyboard 6000 V2.0.

After about 4 months of use, the keyboard is starting to drive me nuts! :(

Actually, it is not the keyboard, but the wireless radio that is giving me hassles.

I have since found out that one cannot run two Microsoft wireless (not Bluetooth) keyboards close to each other, or another wireless keyboard and/or mouse close by as the unit is quite finicky.

I keep getting signal quality warnings from the keyboard software and tons of lost keystrokes. It gets really bad when I am using my Logitech MX Laser mouse a lot . The more mousing, the more I have radio problems with the keyboard! :(

We will have to let it go and pick up a Bluetooth version of the keyboard.

Hopefully the newer 7000 or 8000 series keyboard has the same feel in the keystrokes as this one does because I really like that aspect of the keyboard.
