Pros: It has an ergo design similar to that of the M$ natural.
Cons: I bought this to replace a M$ Natural clone i had. It feels flimsy, even though it took quite a bit of abuse before coming apart. The touch is like using a toy, not a real keyboard. It's SMALL. They tried to save money by making the thing smaller than small. It didn't last a week with me. I spend a great deal of time at the keys. I was constantly hitting the wrong keys, they're so very closely spaced and the touch so light. It had me so frustrated I wound up smashing ...
Summary: It's really to bad I had to wait a week, and then find out they didn't mold this for the keyboard I purchased. They should have a keyboard LIST to start with, and all the confusion, and wasted efforts would not be there.
Pros: Nice if you could get it for the thermaltake mechanical keyboard , I JUST bought, But no deal. I do like the keyboard though. Very nice.
Summary: I spilled something on the keyboard and some of the keys began to act up. But the good news was that I was able to take the keyboard apart and clean and dry it out and got it back together and it now works fine again. That doesn't always work with membrane-type keyboards, so it seems that this particular one is better made than others.
Pros: This seems to be the most solidly built of this type of keyboard available. I have had it for several months and notice that the letters are not wearing off the keycaps, which was a problem with another brand.
Cons: This is a membrane - type keyboard. There don't seem to be any key-switch keyboards available in this style, though.
Very good replacement for my old Microsoft Natural Elite
5 October 2013
Summary: I had nursed my beloved-but-slowly-dying Natural Elite for the last year, dreading having to replace it because I knew it had been discontinued. When it finally gave up the ghost completely, I tried the Microsoft 4000, which I loved except for the fatal flaw of a space bar that took a hammer to press (why, Microsoft??? Did your designers not even bother actually using it before you rushed it to market??? But I digress...
Summary: I have an old thumb injury which has resulted in a weaker thumb. I love the ergonomic design but some keyboards were very hard on the keys, meaning, you had to put a lot of pressure on the key to use it. The space bar on this one has a very light touch as do the other keys. I float over the keys on this keyboard. I recommend this to anyone who has sensitive or weaker finger joints and also needs ergonomic.
Summary: This is a well-built institutional quality ergonomic keyboard. It's not as fancy or loaded with features like the [[ASIN:B004SUIM4E Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 for Business], but nor does it have the kinds of issues that people are complaining about when you read the Microsoft product's reviews. It's been a decade since I used the first 1st generation of split keyboard from Microsoft in the early 2000s.
