Summary: I have bought a number of these keyboards - I really like the ergonomic feel of them. My wrists feel much better using this keyboard. The downside is that they don't seem to last as long as regular keyboards.
Summary: Basic keyboard, works great, hasnt broke.
Pros: Long lasting, Ive used this keyboard for quite a few years now.Keys are starting to get a little dirty, but not bad. I like the shape and of the keyboard, not sure how much it really helps me ergonomically.
Cons: If you get use to this keyboard at home, you might have to buy a second one for work.
Summary: If you aren't used to the split keyboard then it may take some time to adjust. Capitalizing the "b" key is troublesome, but that can easily be accomplished once one gets used to pressing the right shift key to do so. It's limited - it doesn't have quick access buttons for the Internet, for instance - but it is a good purchase if you want comfortable, accurate typing.
Summary: FYI: this is a PS/2 keyboard, with a USB-PS/2 adapter. They keyboard, as far as I can tell, is identical to the original Microsoft Natural Keyboard Elite model KB-0045. The only difference is they added an adapter, in the form of a 4 inch cable extension. This is *NOT* is USB keyboard with a PS/2-USB adapter.
Great keyboard, but its really a PS/2 connector with a USB adapter

Summary: Pros: natural keyboard is more comfortable and much faster to type excellent build quality durability: I've been using it every weekday, constant use 8-9 hrs a day, and its lasted 5 years and still works great. even the printed letters on the keys haven't started to wear out yet. Cons: this is *NOT* a USB keyboard.
Summary: Overstock has a misleading picture of this item, showing it in black. It is in fact white, as I discovered when mine arrived. It does say white in the item description, but I thought I could trust the picture. My mistake I suppose. Otherwise a good item and fair price.
Simple, Elegant, Functional - and being Discontinued!

Summary: I love this keyboard. I've been using one for years, and have one at my office. I recently bought a new one for home after many, many years of faithful service -- a pot of spilled salt water (don't ask) on the old keyboard finally did it in. I highly recommend this product -- my wrists don't ache anymore when I type for long periods!
Summary: I had had my Microsoft Natural keyboard for about seven years. It survived beautifully being used in a house undergoing complete demolition and remodel (lots and lots of 100 year old plaster dust). It finally gave up the ghost recently and I went shopping for the exact same one. Unfortunately the same model is no longer available, and this is the replacement for it. It just seems lightweight, the key tap isn't quite as crisp, and it is a little bit smaller.
