Summary: WHY did they discontinue the comfort curve 2000?
Cons: My comfort curve 2000 broke, and I thought this would be a good replacement, the HUGE curve is neither comfortable nor helpful. Super awful, not sure I want to spend the time or money to return this poorly designed keyboard
Excerpt: I got this keyboard because I am constantly using the ctrl button and my small hands get sooo sore because my finger spread isn't big enough. That and my wrists get very sore trying to get all the keys.So I bought this keyboard to try a curved and slightly elevated style.
Summary: This keyboard might be ok for the normal computer user, but I would say anyone going at 60+ wpm would have issues. I'm also not a fan of midget function keys, but then again I use them a lot. This is not a worthy successor to the 2000.
Pros: Nice, value keyboard line from Microsoft. Rise in the center promotes more natural hand position.
Cons: Key positions are anti-ergonomic -- worse than a standard keyboard! Look at the pictures, and specifically the angle of the QAZ keys. The Z key further right than the W key! It forces the left hand to curl in this ridiculous position to hit it with your pinky. And then you have to press it with t...
Summary: I'd never really been that picky about keyboards until now
Pros: It looks nice, and I liked the idea of a curved ergonomic keyboard that didn't take up as much space as a split keyboard.
Cons: This keyboard seems to be getting mostly positive reviews, so I'm not sure why my experience was so different, but I found it to be incredibly difficult to use. I am normally a very fast typist, but I was struggling with this. The keys have a very shallow action, and they were very stiff. I could...
Summary: I got this keyboard on at a well known online auction house for 18 bucks. I thought it was a great deal until I got it. Then I discovered how small it was. My fingers had difficulty finding the keys. Some of the keys also stuck together.
Pros: It was black which is easy to clean. It was also very cheap. It looked very nice. It gleamed alot.
Summary: I wish they wouldnt' change things just for the sake of change.
Pros: Not much when compared to the Comfort Curve 2000. I can't say that this keyboard is in any way better than the older one. In fact it is much worse.
Cons: All the keys that were very nicely placed on the CCK 2000 have been moved around to less nice places. The only thing I can think of that was an improvement was making the Delete key bigger and the insert key smaller. I never use Insert.
Summary: I have own two 2000, one for home, one for work. I code for hours at work. I code, surf, and play BF3 for hours at home. Comfort is a necessity! Ordered one of these as after buying two "Microsoft Comfort Curve Keyboard 2000" thinking it was an upgrade.
Cons: Mid Keyboard Bump or Divide made the number six key hard to reach and the F6 key impossible without moving your whole body. Keyboard was generally uncomfortable to use. No height adjust function, i.e. legs.
Summary: I brought this keyboard for my son to replace another where numbers/letters rubbed off. Sadly within a 2-3 months on this keyboard, some of the numbers/letters rubbed off. My son did not like the curve effect . I returned it to John Lewis and got a full refund.
