Microsoft Product?

Thuan N., Newegg
16 April 2015
  • Summary: Apparently MS has stopped marketing/selling this product, so I hope it saw the quality shortcoming and take more meaningful steps to release future products of better quality to better deserve the MS label they carry.
  • Pros: Key travel and feedback are good, ample of short cut keys backed by switch, comfortable wrist rest, split space bar requires less activation force, long battery life based on constant use over a year on single set of battery and still going. switch is good for making key temporarily permanent but...
  • Cons: Labels of left hand keys are mostly gone by after 1 year usage; past 6+ MS keyboards never had this issue after multiple years usage; is this new trend going forward? I do not need key labels but see this as indicator of downhill quality trend and will be skeptical buying future MS products. Righ...

Not for the Power Typist

Flour Girl "Flour Girl", Amazon
9 November 2014
  • 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.

Wireless unnecessary/random missed keystrokes

B. Hooven "whooven", Amazon
23 January 2014
  • 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?

David D., Newegg
17 August 2013
  • Summary: do not buy this for amy game that you would need to use more than 2 keys at the same time [foward,turn and sprint/boost] wount do it you'll eather have to come off one of the keys to do an action. this is getting to be a common thing with the past few keyboards i have got.
  • Pros: used it for 30mim. dont know outher than it fits in the trash can well, but i did think it had a nice feel for me.
  • Cons: cant use more than 2 keys at once

Not the successor of the Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000

Srihari Paulsamy, Amazon
9 June 2013
  • 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.

I pressed a button and it broke!

Trent T., Newegg
27 February 2013
  • Summary: My thoughts are I'm going to be *mad* [profanity edit] if Microsoft doesn't get me a working keyboard. I specifically bought this keyboard because it had a mute button. Support number is (800) 360-7561, and they aren't even 24/7.
  • Pros: Nice feel, works great except for one button
  • Cons: I pressed the mute button and it physically broke! It's just permanently sunk in, and pressing it doesn't even work now.

Decent try, not good enough

R. Rangaswamy, Amazon
18 January 2013
  • 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.

Nice idea, but unresponsive

Andrew M, Amazon
16 January 2013
  • 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.

A step backwards...

Amazon Customer, Amazon
12 November 2012
  • 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.

Still hitting the CAPS lock by accident

saberkid, Staples
3 April 2012
  • 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.
  • Pros: Comfortable Design, Easy To Clean, Quiet
  • Cons: Unreliable Performance
