Summary: I gotta say, I was excited to bag this for 12.99 back in october. the keyboard was low profile-ish, just enough for my needs (i really like typing on laptops and the microsoft bluetooth keyboard because they don't bend my wrist all "carpal tunnel-y" like. but i can't stand it because the keys are far too mushy, everything else about it is alright. i bought the MS ergonomic 2000 keyboard earlier and i've gone back to that one.
Pros: Was on sale, very sleek looking keyboard, ergonomic curve, mouse seems indestructible like a good old N64 controller, mouse is light, perfect for travelling and tossing into bags
Cons: vertical hump in middle of keyboard is very awkward for people not used to the hump, keys feel so mushy and not quite right, mouse looks and feels cheap, mouse is a bit too light
Utterly atrocious, off center for touchtyping, bizarre caps lock location

Summary: I have gone through a good many keyboards in my day, from mechanical to digital and every shade. This is bar none the worst, which is odd because I love the Comfort Curve 2000. The layout on this keyboard is offcenter by a letter so you can't touchtype on it. The caps lock key, next to the 'A' is utterly huge and constantly gets hit accidentally. I had my mother, who is a trained typist try it too just to verify that it wasn't just me.
Summary: I type faster and work more comfortably on an ergonomic keyboard. This one has been a useful replacement for my failed keyboard. It is not as comfortable or efficient for me to use as was the one it replaced. There is no separation between the left and right hand which reduces my speed because of the size of my hands. But for the price, it was a good deal and The curve is decent.
Summary: I've been using the 6000V2 and 6000V3 series keyboards for over 6 years and I love the feel of them and the gentle curve to the keyboard without being the full-split "ergo" layout. You can't buy the 6000 series keyboard anymore, which is a major disappointment to me because that was the best keyboard ever made, in my opinion. And having worked in IT for over 15 years, I've used a LOT of keyboards!
