5 out of 5 eggsTwo thumbs way way up

Pros: Easy to get used to once you have it for a little while. Love the feel of the keys and all the added functions on the keyboard. I work IT for a small business and order these for most of the people in the office and they also love it (after they get used to it of course). I have a hard time working on regular keyboards now.

Cons: non that I can think of other than getting used to using (really isn't that bad, just feels weird at first).

5 out of 5 eggssplit keyboard

Pros: I have been using old Microsoft split keyboard since 2001. It still works but I wanted to keep it as a backup and upgrade to a black one to match other peripherals. Only split keyboard I could find that I liked and it has worked great so far.

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsI Ordered the Business Version; I got the Retail Version

Pros: I have been using an older keyboard—the retail version—for years, so I already know this is a great keyboard. I can type on this keyboard all day and night without the slightest bit of fatigue.

Cons: There are simply no cons with this keyboard.

Other Thoughts: I had a spill on my old one, and it was old and dirty, so while cleaning it up, I ordered a new one so I'd have two. What I received is NOT the business version. It has the extra support included that goes under the wrist rest, but the Start/Windows button is NOT what's pictured here, and this keyboard also does not have the white-text labels under all the special keys at the top. When I go to look at the Retail and Business versions of this keyboard on the Microsoft website, the business version has white text labels BESIDE some of the keys that the retail version does not have. Therefore THIS keyboard is the RETAIL version. It's like they took a retail version, put the extra support under the wrist rest, and stuck it all in a brown box like the one pictured for the business version. Only they forgot to include the software/driver disk, so I had to go download all that myself. I'm only giving this keyboard five eggs because it deserves it. However, if I only had the chance to review the people who packaged this thing and stuck the wrong keyboard in it...

5 out of 5 eggsHelp end the pain

Pros: After years of wrist pain, trying to stregthen/stretch/etc., and nothing working I ordered one of these keyboards. Now, after 10+ years I still keep coming back each time I order a new one. This is my 5th keyboard because I have 2 at home, work has bought 2 and have bought one for work.

Cons: There's nothing to indicate you have accidentally pushed the Insert key.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Ever!

Pros: Best keyboard ever. I have had it many years and it still works. Have to buy a new one because I spilt something on it and the "m" key sticks. Great product!

Cons: None...it does everything I want it to.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent keyboard

Pros: Been using keyboard over 5 years and still working great. Letters haven't even worn off yet. Used at work and I'm on it several hours a day 5-6 days a week.

Cons: Would like a sleep button but not much of a con.

Other Thoughts: It takes two weeks to get used to it. If you don't like it after two weeks then your just not going to like it. I'm at the point where typing on flat keyboards actually hurt after a while. Not with this.

5 out of 5 eggsLove it!

Pros: Large, natural. The best keyboard I've used since the original Microsoft Natural 15 years ago, but still not the same mechanical build quality. Has the #6 key on the correct side (left hand if you ever took typing,) unlike many natural keyboards. Uses classic positioning for Home, End, etc instead of the more vertical design seen on recent keyboards.

Cons: Small Enter key - I'm used to having a larger more L shaped Enter key lately. Doesn't fit in most under-desk keyboard trays, but you expect that with a Natural. No backlight, but I'm a touch typist so not necessary for me.

Other Thoughts: This keyboard sits kind of high, so if you already have a high desk it's on it may raise it too much for comfort. Best used with a large under-desk tray for proper ergonomics.

I dual boot with Ubuntu, and as long as it's plugged directly into the mobo and not through a hub I've never had problems with it being recognized unlike another reviewer. It works in the Bios and in Linux and Windows flawlessly. To the other reviewer: update your BIOS and see if that fixes it.

2 out of 5 eggsOne broken key makes this keyboard worthless

Pros: Hands feels comfortable space out. Has shortcut keys that make editing and drafting easier.
Pausing movies is easy with the shortcut keys. customized hot keys that open programs is convenient.

Cons: No sleep button mode. No big deal cause I can just reach over to my tower power button which put it to sleep... still. After a year the semi-colon ; key no longer works. I have to write computer code, so that really makes this keyboard almost useless. I had to buy another keyboard just to type a semi-colon.

Other Thoughts: If you have a dual boot, windows and ubuntu, I suggest getting a keyboard with ps/2 plugs because it is high probability the computer won't recognize the usb connected keyboard the first or fifth time.

4 out of 5 eggsI stockpile these

Pros: This is my favorite keyboard. I have used many and always come back to the good old trusty Microsoft Ergonomic 4000. In fact, I have a stockpile of three of these in case Microsoft stops making them. I absolutely adore the layout. The key press is nice and springy and it doesn't make too much noise to press. Have I mentioned it's ergonomic?

Cons: Some could argue the keys are mushy (but I think they're just right). The S,L,C, and B keys are starting to wear off which is really no problem but doesn't hint the best in quality. I had previously had one of these that broke, I am on my second one, though the other lasted ~2 years. This one is going on 3.

Other Thoughts: I just love this keyboard's layout. If other companies made similar ergonomic split layouts, Microsoft might have a competitor, but right now this is pretty much the only act in town.
