Summary: I was afraid to change from a regular keyboard but wanted to give this a try. I read reviews that mentioned the space key sticks. It did for the first day and I've not had any problems with it since. I transcribe 6-8 hours a day and I'm happy with my purchase and it didn't take long for me to adjust. I did see a newer version at another store and believe I'll purchase that in the future but for the price, I'm very happy with this.
Summary: This is an ergonomic shaped keyboard, very unusual. Takes a learning curve for a fast typist. I'm getting used to the different placement of the keys and the humped up design. I think it will be useful for preventing carpal tunnel, as advertised, since the wrists rest comfortably as you work. I believe I'll enjoy it. It seems well made and I trust Microsoft products. Give it a try.
Summary: I am using this keyboard at work so time will tell if it holds up to my heavy use. The last one (not a microsoft) did not. But my warranty with Square Trade was a God-send so I'm happy I bought it again (just in case)
Summary: I type for a living - lots! This keyboard has been my choice for years now, and I can't imagine using any other. It is comfortable to use and it helps prevent carpal tunnel. I highly recommended it. I have used other keyboards in the past, but never again!
Most Comfortable and Best Keyboard you will ever own!

Summary: I purchased my first Microsoft Ergonomic Keyboard in 1999 on a recommendation from my Doctor as I had the onset of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome from years on a computer. At first I was not to sure what to make of it as the keyboard was split and the shape was a definite paradigm shift however, after a few hours of using it I quickly came to love it. It places your hands and wrists in a more natural position versus the flat rectangular keyboards commonly supplied with PC's.
Summary: I do really like these keyboards...I've been using them for years at home and have one at work too as mentioned in the cons they are in no way spill resistant let alone "Spill Proof" I spilled less than a tablespoon of (distilled) water near the spacebar and the zoom slider and it fried the keyboard had a newer one at work die the same way a couple years later The numbers wear off very easily on the heavily used keys.
Pros: good layout, comfortable, proper arrows
Cons: NOT SPILL PROOF!!!!!! NOT IN THE SLIGHTEST!!!!, Letters wear off easier than most keyboards, NOT.. NOT... NOT "SPILL PROOF"
