Excerpt: I thought this was similar to the Microsoft comfort curve 2000. It isn't - the middle of the keyboard is sloped upward. I couldn't get used to it and took it back. Found the 2000 at a different store. Love the 2000 - replaced my old one that I spilled water on with a new one.
Pros: Curve is comfortable, Durable, Easy Connectivity, Ergonomic
Summary: This was purchased to replace a similar Curve keyboard that suddenly stopped working, with which we were very happy. Unfortunately, this was not a UK keyboard - it appears to be a US layout, so in addition to not having a "£" key, has several others in different places making everyday use a frustrating experience. This was not stated in the description. Otherwise, the build and comfort in use were fine.
Summary: I' ve always used Microsoft ergonomic keyboards. Well, ok at least for the last decade or so. For a few years now they are doing mostly curve keyboards, which I don't like as much as the classic split-type, but I've used some that were decent. This is the first ergonomic keyboard I haven't been able to use, it feels just tiring.
Summary: The keyboard seemed fine in terms of quiet, reasonable key action, but straight away I found this was unusable for me due to the non standard layout. There is an excessively large shift key which means the bottom row is shifted a whole key along compared to the standard qwerty layout (in terms of distance from the ctrl key).
Function keys too small and too low and no Break button

Summary: I found it unusable due to function keys being too small and too low Ctrl + Break is only available as Ctrl + Fn + ScrLk which requires 2 hands and 3 fingers Raised contour just seems to cause wrist strain
Summary: I bought this because it looked like it was half way between a normal keyboard and an ergonomic keyboard (I have a standard one at work, so didn't want a fully ergonomic keyboard at home as switching between them could be difficult). It was one vital flaw. Look at a standard keyboard - the top row is shifted left of the middle row slightly.
