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.
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.
