word of warning - only lists XP and windows 2000 for support - ie not Vista !

however I have the Msoft USB fingerprint reader and that's fine with Vista if you download the new driver from msoft site - point is if you want to use it with Vista do some research and make sure it works and you can get the right drivers etc.:thumbsup:

Anyone know if this is better than the logitech easycall keyboard that was posted a while ago for pc world, £25 I think?

Not bothered about fingerprint reader, or the call features of the easycall. Just which ever is the best keyboard/mouse.

WARNING:

Microsoft Fingerprint devices do NOT work if you use a DOMAIN system. They're okay for local networks and standalone computers, but if you have set up a domain service they aren't currently supported :-(

That's both for XP and Vista...

Just a quick search on Google and I found the following review.....

Do you feel like you're fighting a losing battle against your ever-expanding list of Web site usernames and passwords? If you are tired of having to give Web sites your first car's make and model or your pet's name in order to be e-mailed your account information, Microsoft has the keyboard for you. Instead of always having to hunt for your passwords, with the Optical Desktop with Fingerprint Reader, you'll have them at the tip of your finger.

The AU$200 keyboard-and-wireless-mouse combo is easy to set up and requires little or no thought to use -- provided your browser of choice is Microsoft's Internet Explorer. The software takes four scans of your finger (any one will do), after which you're ready to create fingerprint logins for your favourite sites. We visited Hotmail and Gmail; on both sites' login screens, we let the keyboard scan our fingerprint on file (left index). A small window popped up, asked for our username and password, and let us either choose Submit or enter options (for example, it recognised Gmail's Don't ask for my password for 2 weeks option).

Subsequent visits to the sites required only that we submit our fingerprint, which was quickly recognised in about one second, before IE granted access to our in-box. Unfortunately, we didn't have much luck with alternate browsers such as Netscape or Mozilla's Firefox. We were able to access one site with these browsers (fantasy-football site TheHuddle.com) because it used a Windows password pop-up window, but all other attempts at using the fingerprint scanner failed. Still, for IE users, the Optical Desktop with Fingerprint Reader is a great tool for leaving your password problems in the past.

The keyboard itself comes with the standard array of multimedia and shortcut keys in addition to the fingerprint scanner, which sits on the left edge. The included mouse, Microsoft's Optical Wireless 2.0, requires two AA batteries and will serve most users well, although you may wish it had thumb-side buttons for added functionality.

I was very interested in buying this product, but I was hoping this fingerprint scanner would let users log on to their username, and also for it to function in Firefox.

These are brilliant. I dont have quite what this set up is (I have a wireless mouse, keyboard and a finger print scanner seperatly but im fairly sure the technology and hardwasre is pretty much the same. Works with 90% of websites that require a log in (i.e. this one) and its so easy to use. Only downside is I now cant remember someof my passwords because I dont type them in any longer, oh well.

If you eamn log into windows with it when the PC starts up, mine does support this. And no it doesnt support Firefox, but i've become dissolusioned with Firefox recently, it doesnt seem to be performing any better than IE

If you are getting bored FF2 because it is no faster than IE, try Firefox 3. It is super fast!!!

Thanks- might get that one! Firstly though, I wanted to ask if anyone could recommend me a really good wireless Keyboard/ Optical Mouse combo. My current mouse is playing up, so I've decided to get a new wireless combo (preferably rechargeable). Though not essential, I would really love to have one of these fingerprint scanners within the combo.

Thanks in advance!
