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.
Very happy with Microsoft Hardware - Loathe Logitech low standards

Summary: I am in I.T., am at my keyboard 30+ hours per week, and have been using Natural -Split- Keyboards for over a decade. Nothing compares once you adjust.. and all of my converted clients agree (none will go back after years of use). I recently had an original Microsoft Natural Wireless Pro desktop and after 7+ years it's still in use by my assistant (it was handed down once I upgrade to the Desktop 7000).
Keyboard - 1 star upgraded to 5 stars after moving usb

Summary: After installing this keyboard, I was ready to give it a 1-star rating. I read reviews and saw several users had the same problem of the keys not working. I type at a fair speed and they would not input. My husband pecks at the keys and even with his slow, but firm pressure would result in nothing. I've used the Wired Microsoft Natural Ergo Keyboard 4000 for many years, so was so bummed this idential new one with improved wireless technology was not working.
Summary: LOVE my Microsoft 7000 combo. Both are very ergo friendly. Had an older MS split keyboard so was used to layout. The 7000 has a great feel and is loaded with features that would be excellent for those who cannot remember the short cut keystrokes. They are marked right on the keys. One touch for sound control, spell check, print, calculator, etc. I really like the 'zoom' feature too. The mouse is just like the MS 4000 I have for my laptop.
Summary: Easy to set-up, wireless products. My only issue is that F2 is set for "Undo" instead of "Rename." You can disable the key, but I haven't been able to find a way to use F2 for "Rename" Other than this small issue, this is a great pairing!
Summary: This keyboard/mouse is awesome !!! I was a logitech ergo user before, and was cautious about switching to this one. However, this set exceeded all my expectations. Extremely convenient. Function keys are awesome. Everything where you'd expect it. Good wireless range, long battery life (and i'm using it all day). Soft sensitive mouse. No key delays or even wake up time.
Summary: IF you like this ergonomic style of hand placement on the keyboard, the MS 7000 is a great product. Fits well, good key action, lots of helpful internet buttons (maybe, maybe not, depending on your need for these). The way-out mouse takes some getting used to, but works great once you get the new "side-ways" position down - I found I need more forearm-elbow support than before, but that's ok.
