Reviews and Problems with Microsoft Wired Keyboard 600
Showing 1-10 of 38
I found that annoying and promptly returned the keys

Summary: If you are a programmer (or otherwise rely on the Alt, Ctrl hot key combinations) this is not the keyboard for you. I can't believe many hardware companies are redefining the key positions and expect us to get used to it. Alt keys are not off by 1 cm making it difficult to reach with your thumb.
Summary: First of the USB FOB is paired to the keyboard and can not be replaced if anything goes wrong. It sticks out an inch plus so it is easy for it to get bumped. I had one get bumped and one just stop working I called MS Support, there solution was to buy a new keyboard.
I hate this keyboard. Save yourself grief and avoid it.

Summary: I hate this keyboard. I am a touch typist who has used Microsoft's ergonomic keyboard for years typing a highly accurate 120+ words a minute. Problems with this keyboard: 1. SOFT PLASTICKY MUSHY KEYS YOU HAVE TO PRESS DEEPLY TO ACTIVATE BUT HAVE NO CLEAR POSITIVE FEEDBACK THAT THE KEY IS PRESSED.
Excerpt: How about a sticky enter key? Yes, that causes problems. Couple that with no other smooth operating keys and you've got a keyboard that is a stupid waste of money. I wish I had returned it the day after I bought it.
Don't buy it if you use both the F- keys and media player control keys

Summary: You have to switch between function keys and media keys with a little toggle switch - so if you're in F key mode and want to turn down the volume, flip the switch. Then flip it again to use the F keys.
Do not even try to use this keyboard if you're lefthanded...

Summary: Having used a Microsoft split keyboard which I love but which has worn out over the years, I thought this would be a good replacement. It isn't. It's tilts back instead of forward (or lies flat if the legs aren't extended).
Summary: Pro: -ergonomic without the split keyboard. Con: -New split spacebar feature is unnecessary -No indicator lights for Num Lock or Caps Lock. -I hate the fact that it has a toggle switch to change the Function keys to volume and other function buttons.
Summary: I've used Microsoft ergonomic keyboards almost exclusively for the past 15 years. Most recently the Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 which was great until I spilled coffee on it. My local store didn't have a direct replacement so I picked up the Microsoft Sculpt Comfort Keyboard. Huge mistake!
Summary: I bought this keyboard Oct 2012. The reason for rating it so low is because the design engineers botched up the key placement of the volume keys. My biggest gripe is that the audio keys for changing volume or muting sound (i.e. music) is shared with critical Function keys (F1, F2, F3, F4).
