The Cherry DW 9000 Slim is a modestly priced wireless desktop keyboard-and-mouse combo. With its full-size layout and comfortable keys, the keyboard can be easily swapped in for your daily driver without missing a stroke. And, though the mouse is a little on the small size, its half-dozen customizable keys allow you to tailor it to your productivity needs.

The Cherry DW 9000 Slim is quite a looker. The underside of my review model was done in bronze, with the top deck and keys in black. (Itâ€™s also available in a very Apple-like silver-and-white color scheme.) Thereâ€™s a bit of cutaway around each key to allow a sliver of bronze to show through, creating a nice accent trim. Despite the plastic casing, the keyboard weighs about half a pound due to a solid metal plate placed inside the chassis to increase stability. It feels very durable.
