It Works

cycleridr07, Newegg
11 March 2012
  • Summary: You can say what you want but for my money i want the kind of keyboard i like. I use argo because of having surgery for carpal tunnel, which is prob why most ppl do. and i really like the arrow keys to be layed out so they are easy to use. I personally would not buy this one again.
  • Pros: It works fine. the keys are ok except for the arrow keys. the letters are easy to see for me but my husband cant see them as well as on the cream colored one we used to have.
  • Cons: The keys are way too close together. I dont like the arrow keys set up like they are on this board. I guess i'm just used to a much larger keyboard. This one seems to be very small to me.

Pretty good

Braden R., Newegg
26 November 2011
  • Summary: I have an older model with this same keyboard layout at work which seems to be a little heavier and higher quality. The keys are also textured, not smooth, which is another slight difference from the older version. Arrow keys could be a deal breaker for some.
  • Pros: Great layout and design.
  • Cons: For the first week it would not sit flat regardless of the feet setup. Seems to have slowly "broke-in" because it is stable now.

10 Year Flashback

ComicsFlux, Newegg
20 May 2011
  • Pros: Great transition keyboard from regular to ergonomic keyboards. about 25% smaller then the 4000. Keys feel good, well made.
  • Cons: I was an Elite user for years until they stopped manufacturing, and switched to the 4000. I bought the Elite out nastalgia, but I must admit the 4000 is better. My wife preferred the elite because its smaller and hs smaller footprint and keys.

Not the same feeling as original Natural Elite in grey/white

David S., Newegg
23 March 2011
  • Summary: One egg less because of the keystroke feel. Nice that they have it finally in black. I wish they made a wireless one that is exactly the same and not all modified.
  • Pros: Great design and comfortable like the old ones. Looks like quality design.
  • Cons: The black keyboard doesn't have the same keystroke feel as the original grey/white natural elite. I am hoping I will get used to it but not sure yet. The old one clicked differently. This one is not the same and it is not soft like on the MS 4000 and other new ones.

Best Ergonomic Split Key in this price range

Anonymous, Newegg
17 March 2011
  • Summary: Spill proof or a keyboard cover for this model would be nice. Basic function keys for volume, mute, and calculator would add to usability without having the excessive multi media controls a lot of keyboards offer.
  • Pros: Comfortable to use. Less stress on hands and fingers. Quiet. Minimal.
  • Cons: Not Spill Resistant - I'm buying another one b/c a very minor spill, about 1/2 teaspoon of dt. coke, made about 5 keys stop working. The arrow key arrangement takes a while to get used to.

saves wear and tear on the hands

Ann L. Graham Price, Amazon
20 February 2011
  • Summary: In combination with a good ergonomic mouse (I use a thumb style), this ergonomic keyboard has salvaged my career as a workaholic. I love my work and never run out of things to write about; but after a few decades of heavy usage, my wrists and fingers were showing all the classic early warning signs...

Needs a larger arrow pad

Joseph S., Newegg
19 December 2010
  • Summary: Fully functional overall. I'm not sure its worth the money.
  • Pros: Comfortable to use for typing.
  • Cons: I use this machine for gaming a typing the occassional document. The arrow pad is very small and is hard to use for gaming. I wouldn't normally care much but I use the pad for StarCraft 2 and it takes some getting used to.
