Not for the Power Typist

Summary: This is an OK keyboard if you're not laboring over one all day. I've had 4 of them now, and I think I've purchased my last one. I'm ditching this in favor of the Logitech K350. The Microsoft Sculpt Comfort is definitely NOT for the power typist who types all day. The key placement is odd.
Summary: I love the feel of the keys and the curved keyboard isn't terrible to get used to compared with the old Natural but this version has problems. I thought I'd take a chance and I'm suffering through but consider these before deciding on this keyboard: 1) Do I really need a wireless keyboard?
Not the successor of the Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000

Summary: I use the Natural Ergonomic 4000 and was hoping Microsoft release an update which fixes some of the issues I had with it, namely space bar, size and key response. This keyboard is a smaller and has an improved space bar.
Summary: I agree with David Koehler's review; the layout and having to toggle a switch to access the function and special keys is a pain. I purchased the Microsoft Sculpt Comfort Keyboard as a replacement for a kaput Microsoft Ergonomic 4000.
Summary: My beloved Microsoft Natural Multimedia Keyboards have all failed after years of solid, but creaky, service; not to mention they were discontinued over a decade ago. I was hoping to find a solid replacement with the Sculpt Keyboard but unfortunately it doesn't quite make it.
Summary: I wanted to like this keyboard as it is the only one that I've found that incorporates the Windows8 charm shortcuts, and that's really helpful on a desktop. But I've had a huge amount of input lag, especially after the system wakes from sleep.
Excerpt: The slightly wider space gap between the CAPS lock and the letter "A" is still not sufficient.You may find yourself typing in all CAPS much too often, by mistake. I only bought the keyboard for that "gap" feature, but I see that other keyboards out there will do a better job.
Excerpt: I got this because of the multimedia function keys and used it on a docking station for my laptop. However, more often then not, when I redock my laptop ...it doesn't see the keyboard.After a fews days of messing around with drivers, etc - I went back to my old (basic) usb keyboard from Dell.
Pros: Comfortable Design, Multimedia Function Keys
Summary: It's the usual Microsoft product, full of useless features, most of which perform badly or not at all. In the product description it was described as bilingual - it's not. The keys feel like your are typing on marshmellows and are uneven, very tiring if you have a lot of typing to do.
Summary: This keyboard has a nice feel to it and it seems well made. However, we have had this keyboard for a little over a month and the print on the E key is already coming off. The keyboard is used for hours each day for working from home, but even so, the cheap keyboard we've just replace lasted 7 years...
