Windows 7: Wireless Keyboard

Wireless Keyboard

I want to replace the wireless keyboard that I have (MS 1045), and all that I have found are similar MS products or the Logitech S520 Cordless Desktop Keyboard/Mouse Combo. I would prefer to avoid the MS keyboards, but one of the reviews that I read about the Logitech said that it started losing connectivity at 1 foot from the base.

Since this is to be used on my secondary rig in the bedroom, I definitely want something reliable up to ~ 10 feet distant. Is there such a critter around?

Hi,

Maybe something from Enermax: ENERMAX - Product

I don't know what your budget is but I use the Enermax Aurora Micro Wireless,
I can use it over great distance and has a trackball/mouse function and you can
use it as a Media Center remote but it's quite expensive.

Microsoft Wireless Desktop 3000 - BlueTrack | Ebuyer.com
Microsoft Wireless Desktop 3000

30ft range and it means 30ft and only 30 Bargain for what you want!

The fact that you mentioned price makes it appear that this is expensive, and the fact that they didn't state a price, seems to support that. When I clicked the "where to buy" button, it gave a phone number and email only for themselves, so I guess it is not being distributed. I'm pretty reluctant to contact someone with blinders on. How much are they?

Part of my problem is that what I have is a desktop set, which model number does not correspond with either the keyboard or the mouse, but I think that it was a 4000 or 6000...not sure. In any case, it stinks. The original went bad almost immediately, and they sent me a replacement that was supposed to be an improvement, but the only real difference was it's design. Therefore, I don't have much confidence in MS in this arena.

They distribute them, I bought it at an e-tailer here in the Netherlands.
Just have a look on Google with the model name.

I bought it here in the Netherlands so your price will be different.

They also have another wireless keyboard: Acrylux wireless wich will be cheaper.
They have great build quality and nice keystroke.
