Summary: I love this particular keyboard. As a matter of fact, this is the only keyboard I will ever use. I do typing for long periods of time and this one is the most comfortable. They have some other models that look similar, but you have to make sure the model number is correct.
Summary: Love this keyboard. Originally used it years ago and when I wore it out I ordered the newer version, the 4000 (the black keyboard). Although I loved the added extras that came with the 4000, like the favorites keys and the instant web access button, etc., I had problems with the space bar being very hard to hit causing me to develop some arthritis in my thumb.
Summary: I've been in the computer industry for over 25+ years and I started using THIS version Microsoft ergonomic keyboard over ten years ago. Most people hate them at first: BUT, if you stick with it and us proper typing methods you'll double or tripple your typing speed. VERY, very heavy duty built. These just don't break in my experience. There's a lot of new design ones that angle the keys closer and are cheaper built. But for me, I LOVE it.
Summary: The Microsoft natural keyboard elite is the only keyboards I use any more have tried many other keyboards(onn,casio,logitech and more both wired and wireless)none have stood up to the use and abuse like the elite has-I am a high end gamer and gaming is the most abuse u can put on keyboards,mice,and computers themselves-I would recommend this keyboard to any one looking for a good reliable long lasting keyboard for any use
Summary: this is simply the best keyboard ever mad. been using them since they came out. pros\ tough as raw hide, last forever. wired, (wireless sux) other thoughts\ y did u stop making this keyboard microsoft (i would like to kick bill in the jimmy)
Summary: Yes there is a learning curve. Yes it takes desk space. Yes it looks weird but after using this flavor MS keyboard honestly you can't live without it. When I go to user's desks and they have an old-school rectangle board I cringe. I have used this model of keyboard for 11-12 years. If I wasn't married I would ask this to marry me.
Summary: This is the only kind of keyboard we use at work and home. It rocks. Perfect positioning for hands. The day I began using it I immediately improved in speed and accuracy. This is NOT an exaggeration. Hand rest is perfect for our hands. No dislikes. I prefer black - it shows far less dirt/oil from hands than the white.
Summary: I have always preferred ergonomic keyboards. Previous Microsoft Elite performed flawlessly until liquid was spilled on it. Replaced it with wireless keyboard for convince. Use for two months, however it did not posses the comfort or ease of use as the Elite. Immediately went on the prowl for another Elite.
