A really great 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 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.
Summary: I ordered this keyboard largely because the front edge is straight, not curved, and so doesn't rock against the front edge of my keyboard drawer. It has all the features I need, quiet function, and is comfortable to use.
Summary: The reason I gave this a 5 star is because it has great quality at a great price. What I liked about this product? It does what it suppose to the pad that I rest my wrists on. I would recommend this product to anyone who types on a desktop.
Summary: Finally my Microsoft Comfort Keyboard had to be retired. It was an excellent keyboard but after five years of use, the wear on the shift and enter key made it annoyingly sticky (cleaning didn't help). I replaced it with this keyboard and immediately I felt at home. Being a high speed touch typist (100+ WPM), I find it very accurate. The toggle for the top row function key is nice since with older styled keyboards the function mode wasn't always obvious.
