Conclusion: While there was much to like about the overall design of the Sculpt Comfort Keyboard, we can recommend it only with reservations. For some, the key size and depth won't present an issue, but for others, it could be a deal breaker. We suggest a try-before-you-buy with this keyboard more than most.
Pros: Split-spacebar design makes backspace more accessible, Comfortable layout, Sturdy wrist rest
Cons: Keys felt mushy and too deep, No key backlighting, Function and shortcut keys are small, half-height
Excerpt: If you do a lot of typing or gaming that involves long periods of time using a keyboard, then you can do yourself a lot of good by getting an ergonomic keyboard such as the Microsoft Sculpt Comfort Keyboard.
Conclusion: The Sculpt isn't overly expensive - especially when considered against the hopeless Wedge keyboard. It's a proper typing keyboard too, so if words are your business, then it's likely you'll find its firm, but positive action most pleasing, and touch-typists will take to it well. The caps lock key, overly-big wireless dongle and lack of adjustment are downsides, but all minor ones and even together don't add up to enough to put us off recommending this keyboard.
Pros: Not too expensive, great quality, good to type on, perfect for touch-typists, good wireless, long battery life
Cons: Dongle is too big, caps lock is stupid, split spacebar is useless
