MSFT BT Mobile Keyboard 6000 works with Mac, Windows, and Wii

By 

from Cupertino, CA

Comments about Microsoft Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 6000 Wireless Keyboard, Keypad:

I needed to buy more USB keyboards as I only had a bunch of PS/2 keyboards and one wired USB keyboard. I recently bought 2 of these Microsoft Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 6000 and am typing this review using one of them. The keyboard paired up with my Mac and with my Windows computers easily enough; you make the BT keyboard be discoverable and then just follow the wizard prompts both on Mac and Windows which will prompt you to type in the generated passcode. You only need to do that once. The keyboard also paired up surprisingly well with my Nintendo Wii so now I have a way to use the Opera Web browser on my Wii to surf the net easier using my large HDTV as the screen. The standard keys are where they're usually placed on other keyboards, so no problem there, but it does take a while for me to get used to locating the arrow keys and the Delete key. The keyboard has 5 rubber pads on the bottom side, two towards the back and 3 near the front. One thing I noticed was that the middle rubber pad is thinner/shorter than the other 2 near the front. This makes the keyboard itself somewhat "bouncy" when some people type and depress the spacebar. It's not a problem for me as I am a light typist. The keyboard seems to go to "sleep" to conserve battery power when idle for a while. It's easy enough to wake it up by pressing any key but some people may be surprised by that and may label the keyboard as "lagging". I've never turned the power switch off but the 2 AAA batteries seem to last quite a while (still on my first pair of batteries). Overall, I'm very happy with the purchase and would recommend buying this.

Great for the iPad

Comments about Microsoft Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 6000 Wireless Keyboard, Keypad:

I got this keyboard to use with my iPad, PS3, and my HTPC and it works quite well.  I like having the option of utilizing a numpad whenever I want, thus decreasing the size of the keyboard and making it easy to place on your lap.  I don't want to discuss why I didn't get a netbook if I got a keyboard for the iPad, but I sometimes need to use a keyboard, and I think this is a better solution than buying Apple's expensive keyboard + dock.  It's not as comfortable as Microsoft's Arc keyboard but considering the price and portability, I like it a lot.  I'm impressed that this was made by Microsoft as it looks pretty slick for a bluetooth keyboard.  I still prefer the Logitech Dinovo Edge though as that is my favorite keyboard despite how ridiculously expensive it is.  I read some reviews on this keyboard that state the numpad does not work well with the iPad.  I have no problems whatsoever here, so it should be good to go!
