Summary: I tried this product thinking its features will make it better than the Comfort Curve 2000. In the end I think you're paying more for less. Ergonomics is much better on the 2000 and I like the placement of the special keys. The layout of the 3000 is too curved and there is not enough distance between the space bar and the edge of the keyboard so I feel that my wrists angle up too much.
Pros: "Ergonomic", standard keys work well, has some nifty shortcut keys like the calculator and volume keys.
Summary: This keyboard is lightweight and works okay, but if you need an actual ergonomic keyboard, this isn't going to do it. It's barely different from a regular keyboard and I cannot use it with my carpal tunnel.
Ergonomically designed keyboard at a bargain price.

Excerpt: Microsoft Comfort Curve Keyboard 3000 Whilst my keyboard skills are not the greatest, the ageing PC-World own-brand keyboard I had been using had definitely been hampering me of late. Although it was still functioning, I had been using it -and abusing it - for 7 years and some of the keys were beginning to lose their "springiness" and just didn't feel right. Cheap as chips I wasn't in any rush to buy a new one.
Pros: Ergonomic design . Excellent price, comfortable . Easy to use . Win7/8 no drivers needed .
Cons: Indications of cheap construction raise doubts about longevity/durability
Excerpt: i am not very computer savvy but i cant get on the internet when this keyboard is plugged in, i tried everything and in the end had to plug my old one back in, very dissapointed as it felt comfortable to use and for the money had great features, just couldnt use them!
Summary: Pretty standard keyboard. It's very thin and the keys hardly depress when you type. Took me weeks to get used to using it whereas it normally only takes me a day or even less to get used to most keyboards. One good thing I can say about it is that when used for gaming you can hold left shift and press WASD at the same time (shift is often the sprint button in video games) and it registers.
Nice looking product but not sure the curve is adding much benefit

Summary: This is overall a nice looking product. Plus points: it is very sleek and smart looking It has all the keys I need in the right places Minus points: It gets dirty easily: shining finish of the base material around the keys makes it prone to finger marks so you will have to keep wiping it if you want it to look clean. I don't know if it's just me but I feel the curve is actually hindering my touch-typing.
Summary: This a well made keyboard and mouse, but having used it for a few weeks I decided it's just not for me. The keyboard lays flat on the desk and has no stands to lift it up at the back. but then it has a hump in the middel of the keys, which is not the middle of the keyboard, so it always seems a bit off center. Also, the keys are not quite in the "normal" place, but are slightly offset due to the ergonmic design. This led to me pressing the wrong key fairly often.
Summary: They keyboard is gently curved with a centre hump but not really to the extent that "ergonomic" designs usually offer. The principal problem for me is the absence of feet/legs to adjust the height. Also there is no wrist wrest (obvious from the picture but I recklessly assumed there would be an attachable one in the box). Key feedback is reasonably good - all keyboards take some getting used to, after all. It's shiny.
