Not Ergonomic enough.
Business Professional, Staples

Excerpt: I like a more ergonomic keyboard. This was not. Had intended to use for my laptop. I purchased the Logitech Wireless K350 instead. Returned the Microsoft to Staples which was easily done.I did not even plug it in just tested typing and just did not work for me.Prior to purchasing online I went to Staples to see if they had one in store or to ask advice. None available and no helpful advice from Staples employee. Though,, always courteous and polite.
Excerpt: This combo was the right size, full featured and well reviewed. Love the size and the features, but the keyboard and mouse performance are both quite poor. The keyboard occasionally lags and often adds keystrokes I have verified that I do not hit, The mouse has an excellent feel and I wish I could keep it, But the performance is poor on both movement and clicking. Frustrating to play even a slow game.
Excerpt: Thought I loved this keyboard when I gave it a 5 Star rating. Now I see that there is no indicator on the keyboard or a "pop-up" in lower right of computer screen to indicate if CAPS are on. Went to a chat room and many complaints about this. I'm returning it..... Oh, the only Time you see CAPS LOCK IS ON is when you sign into computer with password. Very comfortable keyboard to use along with mouse, but I gotta have an indicator.
Excerpt: The good news is the keys were bright and easy to negotiate, which is why I'll give it 2 stars. However, what I found was F keys to small and the keyboard to be uncomfortable with the wave design. I'm sure it was there to be erogonimacally correct, but I found it to be awkward in the positioning on my desk. In addition, the cushion on the bottom was hard and not very giving. I ended up giving it to another worker in the office, who also found the F keys to be too small.
Excerpt: Was surprised when I saw how small the keyboard is. I was so used to my old wave keyboard but I had worn the letters off some of the keys and had nearly eliminated the finger nubs (or whatever they are called). Because of the price I bought 2 as I have several computers in my office. Still haven't hooked up the second one and not sure if I will. My neighbor made a wooden base to raise the keyboard and I'm still trying it out.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Quiet
Cons: Built Stand To Raise Up, Shift Key Sticks, So Thin
Excerpt: Wish I had checked several features. One is the lack of a light to signify caps lock and number lock. Constantly flipping back/forth, retyping, because you can't tell if it is locked until you type. Little awkward getting used to the different shape and feel, but with time I'm getting there. Love the cordless feature and the touch is just right on the keyboard, but the calculator side is shaped different and a little harder to get used to.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Set Up, Fast Response, Highly Compatible, Long Range, Quiet
