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
Summary: I own the Curve 2000 keyboard, and prefer that to this one, it's easier to type on, although the 3000 is okay once you get used to it -- it's quite a bit different. It was very difficult to install, I thought for a Microsoft product it would be just plug and play, but installing the mouse was a nightmare, I had to use my old Logitech mouse to download the proper drivers, for Windows 7. In my opinion Microsoft can do better.
Pros: Sleek looking, comfortable, well made.
Cons: Hard to install, mouse is on the light side.
Summary: I was a big fan of the good old Microsoft Comfort keyboard, the original big bulky beige color one. Can't say the same for this new Comfort keyboard, while it looks sleek, it definitely doesn't feel good to type.
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: Only purchased this one as the one I really wanted was the ComfortCurve Keyboard 2000v1.0 which is no longer available, do not know why they have discontinued this one as it fitted the bill for me..
Summary: I was initially forced to purchase a new keyboard because my last one stopped working, and it was a wireless keyboard and the second one to go the way of the dustbin. Begrudgingly due to finances, I opted to purchase a relatively cheap wired USB keyboard and the Comfort Curve from Microsoft was my choice.
