Summary: I have long been a fan of this keyboard and have used one for several years. When my last one started to go bad after years of service I immediately ordered a new one for myself and one for my wife. I have nothing but problems with the new ones. Keys stick constantly. Quality is no longer a feature of this product. Such a shame because I love the design.
Love the shape and functionality, hate the durability.

Summary: I love ergonomic keyboards, they are the only kind I will use, but I bought this keyboard to replace one just like it. In fact, I bought two to replace my last one, because the last one died a horrible sudden death. These keyboards apparently have a moisture issue so bad even high humidity can cause keys, multiple keys, to just suddenly stop working. Hence, my buying two to replace the last one. I dont expect this one to last much longer than the last one did.
Excerpt: I was first exposed to this when starting a new job and was kind of intimadated by how I was going to manuever trying to type comfortably with it. It did not take me long, however, to not just manuever it comfortably, but to fall in love with it. I actually ended up having to purchase one for my home computer as well.
Summary: The keys aren't as soft as I expected. I have used softer keyboards by D*LL. Maybe because I am used to typing with soft keyboards it feels like I am fighting with the keyboard. The space bar is even a bit harder and makes a bad noise. The keyboard is Ergonomic alright but I thought it would be less noisy and softer. Hoping I will get used to it.
Summary: Very irritating space bar. Unless your thumb is almost in the middle of the space bar the bar will not operate. If you place your thumb on one of the outer edges (left or right) the space bar simply does not work. Other features are fine, but as often as people use the space bar you would think Microsoft would make the bar easy to use or split the space bar into two bars as other keyboards do for ease of operation.
