Home Reviews Peripherals Microsoft advances mice - review

Microsoft has been updating its keyboards and mice with new Windows 8 compatible products.

I am not going to do a ‘travelogue’ but over the past few weeks some items have caught my eye and are now part of the Shaw kit.

The ultra-stylish AU$99.95 Wedge keyboard and AU$79.95 Wedge mouse use Bluetooth and have become constant companions to my Windows 8 tablet. The keyboard has a unique cap that converts to a tablet stand and the keyboard is tactile and useable (unlike so many thin tablet keyboards). Not cheap, but then nor are you! Easy to use left or right handed – Ambidextrous. 

  

The ultra-weird looking AU$129.95 Sculpt Ergonomic Desktop keyboard and AU$59.95 mouse (US site) builds on the ergonomic keyboards of yore that made you look deformed as you typed. I don’t mean to be mean but these are for a special breed of user. I am assured that this is an advanced ergonomic design and I am sure that someone somewhere will love it. Like the Sculpt Comfort keyboard and mouse combo formally reviewed here it sloped forward elevating the wrists. It comes with a separate keypad and an ergo mouse with the new blue Windows swipe button.

 

 

If you like modern mice the $79.95 Arc Touch Mouse has a certain appeal. I used one for a week or so and found it ultra-comfortable. Ambidextrous. 

 

 

 

The new $29.95 Wireless Sculpt mobile mouse is a lower cost, wireless mouse that has the advantage of bluetrack so you can use it on almost any surface. Ambidextrous
