Not fully functional on Mac beyond OS 10.7

Shulamit, B&H Photo
1 March 2016
  • Excerpt: Though it doesn't say so in this catalog, this keyboard which was terrific up through Mountain Lion on the Mac, loses function on more recent updated Mac OS. For instance, the "magic keys" that call up the internet, mail, etc.

I couldn't get used to the keyboard

frugalmomof4 , Office Depot
15 December 2015
  • Summary: I tried using this keyboard for a couple of weeks. I liked the wrist rest, but that was about all. I found the keys to be stiff and unresponsive (I'm a fairly fast typist). Also, I couldn't get used to where the keys were located. I had to learn to type all over again.

Okay keyboard for the price when on sale

Aaron M., Newegg
30 June 2015
  • Summary: Unless you've used this keyboard before and you really enjoy it, I wouldn't suggest picking it up at normal cost. Wait for a sale first before you buy to try this for yourself.
  • Pros: Things seemed well when I wrote my first review on this product after about a month's use. As time goes on, the keyboard irritates me more and more. They keyboard is ergonomic and that is what I really like - it is very comfortable to use....also, it's black so it goes well with everything else o...
  • Cons: 1) Letters started wearing off about 2 months after use (I've had the keyboard for just over 1 year now. I do game, but it's not just WASD that's worn off. E, R, F, C, I, O, J, K, L, N, M, Q, TAB, L-Ctrl, L-Alt, Backspace, Enter and arrow keys have wear and are getting hard to read. 2) The space ...

Good ergonomics, poor quality

Lawrence G., Newegg
2 December 2014
  • Summary: I am comfortable with the keyboard style but not the problems. I just ordered the new business version of the 4000 hoping it will be reliable that this basic 4000 model.
  • Pros: The MS Natural Ergonomic 4000 keyboard has wonderful design and typical Microsoft poor quality. It really relieves wrist fatigue and helps carpal tunnel syndrome sufferers.
  • Cons: Low quality. Sticky keys, key that start to fail. Also, the numerals begin to wear off rapidly leaving a blank key. I have had to battle with the goofy software you must install. About 10% of the time, Windows does not see the keyboard and I must remove the cable and reinsert it so Windows will t...

Stiff keys, noisy space bar

Rachel34209 , Office Depot
30 June 2014
  • Summary: 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.

Use to be a quality product

Henry Y., Newegg
9 April 2014
  • Pros: Comfortable design - I've been using this keyboard at work for the past 6 years and its really comfortable. Even my wife has converted to preferring to use this keyboard.
  • Cons: Quality - The quality of this model as deteriorated over the years. The keyboard I have at work is 6 years old and going strong. All the letters have worn off, but since I touch type it doesn't bother me. Soon after I got the keyboard at work, I bought one for home. After several years, it sudden...

Spacebar hard to press

Sharan H., Newegg
6 December 2013
  • Pros: Nice ergonomic layout, has very nice freel.
  • Cons: Spacebar requires a lot of for force when tapping from the sides, which is causing me to type slower. Maybe mine is defective, not really sure.
