Summary: We wanted a plain, cheap, durable keyboard to replace the keyboard our 9 month old has decided to destroy at all costs. This is also spill-proof, which (in my mind) helps deter spit/drool attacks from previously mentioned baby attacks. It's slim in the laptop style of keyboard, doesn't get too hot, easy plug-in and use. It's exactly what we wanted.
Summary: Recieved when promised!.. Can't beat anything made by Microsoft! Thank you Target for a great value and fast service.. I like the added feature of the "Calculator" button..very smooth keyboard and the keys are quiet soft.. very nice.
Summary: The mechanical functions are as good as any keyboard I have used. After My last Microsoft 600 keyboard quit working because the dust In My Oklahoma bedroom Is like glue and I tried cleaning It with Ammonia which got Inside and shorted It out. Why I says Its a waste Is because this Is one of the best mechanical functioning keyboards but the IC Integrated Circuit Chip goes bad and rather than just being able to replace the IC chip You must buy a new keyboard.
Summary: I have been typing with an old NMB keyboard with a split space bar for a number of years. As a touch typist, I found the option of using the left half of the space bar as my backspace truly astonishing in how it positively affected my typing speed. I loved that keyboard but wanted one a bit more up-to-date...with a volume button perhaps. This fills the bill, I have my split space bar with a shorter key throw. And the keys are lined up more comfortably.
Summary: I am a longtime user of the Microsoft Natural keyboards and am a big fan of ergonomic keyboards to reduce shoulder and neck strain when using flat/straight style keyboards for long sessions. If you are thinking of making the move to ergonomic, there will be an adaptation period, but it's worth it. The Natural keyboards have one major downside, and that's their physical size. They don't fit in many keyboard trays -- not at all if use the negative tilt piece.
Summary: I had been using some crappy Frankenstein of a keyboard just because I could hack together a split spacebar with left space as backspace (on most keyboards the spacebar is only a single switch, but on some old cheap keyboards I had at work the spacebar actually sat on top of 3 switches, the other two being some Korean keys). Anyway right around the time that keyboard broke, Microsoft released this and I've been using it ever since.
The Windows 8 upgrade from the Microsoft Natural keyboard

Summary: I have been using the Microsoft Natural Keyboard series for years (the ones with the split keys), and I love those keyboards. Typing on anything else was not as comfortable or as fast for me. The Sculpt Comfort Keyboard is just as comfy as the Natural series, but adds the nice Windows 8 shortcut keys for Search, Share, Devices and Settings on the top row, as well as several other useful shortcut keys.
Summary: I needed a quiet keyboard quiet enough to not be heard when typing while using my speaker phone. I take notes with OneNote and most keyboard 'click' too loudly, especially the space bar. This one is as quite as I could find. I would rather have had a wired version, but hopefully this one will not go through batteries too quickly. Note: Keyboard does not have a "CapsLock" indicator.
