2 out of 5 eggsI don't think I'll get another

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Doesn't last. This will be the second I'm replacing. Keys go bad. Have a missing 'X' key after 5 months. I'm going to try to find another ergo keyboard.

2 out of 5 eggsGood ergonomics, poor quality

Pros: The MS Natural Ergonomic 4000 keyboard has wonderful design and typical Microsoft poor quality. It really relieves wrist fatigue and helps carpal tunnel syndrome sufferers.

Cons: Low quality. Sticky keys, key that start to fail. Also, the numerals begin to wear off rapidly leaving a blank key.
I have had to battle with the goofy software you must install. About 10% of the time, Windows does not see the keyboard and I must remove the cable and reinsert it so Windows will then recognize it. Repeated reinstalls of latest driver does not solve this vexing problem.

Other Thoughts: I am comfortable with the keyboard style but not the problems. I just ordered the new business version of the 4000 hoping it will be reliable that this basic 4000 model.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: As someone with extremely bad carpal tunnel, this keyboard has helped a lot. It takes a little while to get used to the front of the keyboard being raised on the little platform.

Cons: Platform that raises the front is cheaply made and will break quite easily under normal use. I've gone through several of these keyboards in the last several years.

5 out of 5 eggsOld Habits Hard to Break

Pros: Great feel, many helpful hot-keys, but, see below.

Cons: Had to go back to old MS Natural Keyboard because after
week of use, I could not stop reaching for hot-keys that were not there anymore. Many keys changed location but two I miss that are gone are sleep and calculator.

Other Thoughts: If you coming from generic keyboard to this I think you will love it.

5 out of 5 eggsI love this keyboard!

Pros: Very comfortable to use
Padded wrist rest
Hot keys

Cons: Haven't found any

Other Thoughts: This keyboard is so comfortable to use that I just ordered another one to take to work - and it was $10 less than I paid for the one I have in my home office. Although I've only had it about 2 weeks, I'm quickly getting used to it. It does take some time to figure it out - the keys are spread apart more than a standard keyboard and, of course, a laptop. This makes it a bit difficult to switch back and forth. I work from home 3 days a week and go into the office 2 days a week, and it's already been a bit odd switching back and forth.

It comes with a removable plastic riser on the front that tilts the keyboard more downward. It was way too much for me at home so I removed it, but at work I have a stand-up desk and it might just be a good thing there - I'll have to try it out.

I haven't done anything yet with the programmable keys and I need to figure out what the little slider in the middle is for, but once I get comfortable with the rest of the keyboard that's my next step.

1 out of 5 eggsShould have learned the first time.

Pros: Form,

Cons: quality, longevity

Other Thoughts: This is the second one of these i have bought in the last year. I'm an IT Director for a non-profit in 35 states. Same issue both times. The entire left half of the keyboard will stop working. No warning. Fine one minute, dead the next. Nothing to be done but throw it away and start again. Apparently the quality has gone way way down. Won't buy this model again.

4 out of 5 eggsReally Annoying B Key

Pros: I love how this keyboard conforms to how you rest your hands, not trying to get your hands to type a way they are uncomfortable with.
Also I really like the favorites keys, they really help bring up apps quick. The keys have a lot of travel which I like, speaking from a guy thats been using his laptop's keyboard for everything.

Cons: REALLY annoying 'b' key! I don't know if i keep pushing it wrong but it never wants to work with my normal typing, I always have to push on it really hard if I want it to work. Though I do have an older model, so microsoft might have fixed it.

Other Thoughts: Just an observation, this keyboard is kind of loud, to me that really doesn't matter, but just saying. Awesome for the price!

1 out of 5 eggsThe B Key is in The Wrong Place

Pros: It's certainly comfortable to use... if you type the letter B with your left hand.

Cons: The B key is in the wrong place. I, along with pretty much everyone I know, types B with my right index finger. With this keyboard, you either have to get used to typing B with your right hand, or replace all your B's with N's. I ended up switching back to a regular keyboard.

Other Thoughts: Just putting an extra B key on the right side of the split would have fixed the problem.
