Broke right away

Summary: After about a month of use at work, the space bar quit working. Called Microsoft about the warranty. They said, send in the keyboard, hub, and mouse. Returned everything and waited. 11 days past the delivery date to them, I called to check because the https://admin.innotrac.com/Microsoft/ics/ website said it was experiencing technical difficulties, or could not locate my order, and NO emails were sent to me regarding status.
Summary: I have used corded Natural Keyboards for many years. A few years ago I started buying these wireless kits for work. They are extremely comfortable if you take the time to get used to them. Batteries on these also last longer than other wireless keyboards I have used. Over the last year, however, i noticed the signal on these appear to be weaker than previous ones. It is now important that the receiver be positioned almost directly behind the keyboard.
Summary: This Keyboard is a waste of money! To begin with, many of the keys didn't work. After troubleshooting with Microsoft, MOST started to work. The caps lock has never worked. After about 60 days many of the keys would crap out intermittently. The design / layout of the keyboard was comfortable, but if it doesn't work, that's kind of irrelevant. The mouse is a great design and frankly I will miss that. (I have replaced this set up with a competitor. After only 4 1/2 months.
Summary: If you want a keyboard and mouse setup that stops responding/transmitting information randomly then this is the setup for you!! This must be a super old product that Microsoft hasn't really updated in some time. The mouse really never worked out of the box. First of all, if you do not have a completely flat surface, it will not work. The mouse is weighted a little bit more on the thumb-side and will wobble to the left.
Summary: I was experiencing severe wrist pain in my right wrist, so I thought an ergonomic keyboard might be my solution. Unfortunately, I was very dissatisfied with the quality of the product I received. I use the keyboard for my work, for around eight hours each day. The Mouse Fortunately, the mouse works well. I bought a wrist support brace of sorts and I use it while using this mouse. You have your hand at kind of an angle in a more natural position.
Summary: I bought the Microsoft Wireless 7000 keyboard and mouse package for use on a Macbook Pro about two months ago. While the keyboard is okay, the mouse is a piece of junk (yes, I'm trying to use nice words). The keyboard works, but it is annoying in that the spacebar clacks loudly if I hit it with my right thumb. With the left thumb, it is nearly silent. The keyboard has no indicator for cap locks, which is annoying.
Summary: Comparison of Ergonomic keyboard 7000 and Ergonomic keyboard 7000 for business I made a call to Microsoft and the Rep. confirmed his belief with his co-workers and states that there is not a 7000 FOR BUSINESS keyboard made and is not sure why the listing states this. He did say that the business keyboards are usually sold in bulk for businesses thus offering a better price. He actually got on Amazon.com and checked the pics, specs...
Summary: Well, I'm stuck with it, but not too happy. The keys get stuck so the letter keeeeeeeps going.... Just like that but could go on for a whole page and really fast. Not just a particular letter either, anyone of them have gotten stuck multiple times in a day. Secondly, there is no indicator when you have the caps button depressed. My prior keyboards have never had these two problems. Also, there are a lot of functions such as zoom, favorites etc, but none work.
Summary: I have been using a microsoft natural keyboard at work now for a couple of years, and have been using the natural style keyboard (logitech) at home for several years as well. Logitech doesn't seem to make them with the split keys anymore, so I bought this set. The keyboard is still great, although it feels cheaper than the wired version at work. Might be updated, or just not broken in yet. I just wish I could have bought the wireless keyboard without this damn mouse.
