Ergonomic, yes; intuitive, not so much.

  • Excerpt: This keyboard is fine, except for the fact that there are many options and customizable features with almost no documentation.

Stiff keys, noisy space bar

  • Excerpt: I used another popular brand of ergonomic split keyboard for 14 years. I was sad to find out they stopped making that model. When I changed jobs and the new company bought me this one, the space bar really took a lot to push and clunked loudly. The keys in general were harder to push. The shape was fine and I need it to avoid having a carpal tunnel release surgery on my left wrist.
  • Pros: Comfortable
  • Cons: Difficult to Use, noisy space bar, hard to press keys

Terrible spacebar

  • Excerpt: I bought this after using a logitech wave keyboard. I was horrified to find the keyboard sounded extremely loud on EACH AND EVERY PRESS. If I could get it to activate. Hit it even slightly off the very center of the key and it would bind. I tried a couple fixes online for it to no avail. I finally returned it to the store for a refund and decided to go back the my worn out logitech. Even the usual keys seemed like some should be wider and some shorter.

Not as described.

  • Excerpt: This is a wonderful design, but the keys tend to stick and are loud. I will continue to use it as it was expensive. Microsoft usually has good products and I will continue to purchase their products and recommend to friends. The layout is great and the access to the keys is great. Designed well, but the stickiness / stiffness of the keys is a let down.
  • Pros: Comfortable Design, Great Features
  • Cons: Noisy, Unreliable Performance

  • Pros: * Solid, * Comfortable
  • Cons: * Stop working after 6 months, * Expensive when not on sale, you pay for the brand, * Don't work well when connected to a extended self-powered USB extension

  • Excerpt: I tried this for six months and could not type as fast as the curved microsoft. Some of the keys are smaller than others and I frequently hit the larger microsoft and alt keys in error.

  • Excerpt: I loved this keyboard but after just a few years of use, I have to use a paint pen to write in the letters that have worn away. This is my office computer so the keyboard gets alot of use. I hate to have to purchase another keyboard just because the letters have worn away. What gives?
  • Pros: Comfortable Design, Easy To Clean, Great Features, Highly Compatible
  • Cons: Letters Rubbed Off

didn't work for me

mamacita, Office Depot
17 October 2012
  • Excerpt: I bought this for my work, but the wave/arc seems to be highly aggravating my wrist after only a week of use. I have used ergonomic boards in the past which were split, but flat & they worked great. the hump in the middle seems to be adding a twist to my wrist. It's possible though that my 10yrs of suffering with carpal tunnel that my wrists have accustomed to flat designs & the different shape has put me out of alignment.
  • Pros: Features, Quiet
  • Cons: Design

Love the keyboard, quality is horrible

  • Excerpt: This keyboard keys faded as well but that's not a problem for me since I type by touch. What is a problem is the space bar sticks and now the "C" key won't work at all and it died after about one year. Microsoft won't pay for shipping to return. It's fairly heavy item to mail back.
  • Pros: Features, Design
  • Cons: Performance, Expensive, Build Quality, keys don't work lettering gone
