It’s very hard not to like the Wireless Desktop Elite set from Microsoft. For a set of input device, the comfort level and build quality is truly top notch. Well, for an eye-popping price tag nearly touching the S$170 mark, anything less than the above-mentioned is probably unacceptable. The keyboard is quiet, responsive and soft enough to perform fast-touch typing on it. The inclusion of the left-handed scroll wheel with tilt technology and back/forward buttons on the keyboard are a nice touch as well. Keyboard appearance with the silver Hotkeys on the black base makes this keyboard a real black beauty, and with keys that have a good tactile feel to it makes this keyboard with substance too.
We also have to stress that the optics on the mouse is very good and performs well for surfing and gaming (which is pretty rare for a wireless mouse). With the noteworthy comfort level of the mouse, hours of usage should not cause too much fatigue or stresses on your wrists. However, we would still recommend that you practice standard ergonomic rules when using your PC for long periods of time. The only gripe we have with the mouse are the middle and small thumb buttons. The small thumb button’s awkward placement grew on us and quickly became a chore to press. We felt that these two buttons could be improved to further provide an even greater level of mouse ergonomics and experience.
Of course, all these functionality and comfort comes at a price. At a cost of S$169, the Wireless Desktop Elite might be considered too expensive for many. But look at it this way, if you’re willing to pay a premium price for an ergonomic chair for your back, flat flicker-free LCD panels for your eyes, why not comfortable input devices like the Wireless Desktop Elite for your wrists? At the end of the day, if you’re one who’s willing to pay for comfort, we’re sure you’ll love the Wireless Desktop Elite the moment you lay your hands on it. Oh, by the way, batteries ARE included.
