4 out of 5 eggsStinkin' function keys! LAME!

Pros: Excellent feel of the keys (except function "keys")
Excellent idea to split the number pad and main area.
Battery life is holding steady for a 60+ hours a week + gaming lifestyle so far.
I love the magnetic battery bay, and magnetic reverse tilt stand. Keyboard is very lightweight and has a great feel to it.

Cons: Function keys are ridiculous. I read reviews prior to purchase, and I was like..."Ok, they sound bad...but they can't be that bad." And they are...HORRIBLE. I believe that Microsoft decided to compact the design of those keys at the top and thought it necessary to do something different. I'd rather them be bigger, full size keys because I use them all the time. The F6 key is also on the wrong side...compared to the Natural Ergonomic 4000.

Final con...the reverse tilt has a rather rough edge; if you have fat wrists or put lots of pressure BELOW the keyboard, you will feel the edge. Thankfully I only feel the edge occasionally, but I do feel it.

Other Thoughts: I'm in agreement with the other developer reviews on here. I work 60+ hours a week doing development, and I'm coming from the Microsoft Natural Ergonomic 4000 - a fantastic keyboard that almost literally, saved my wrists from almost certain Carpel Tunnel Syndrome. The transition to this keyboard was only a slight shift in where to move my hands from mouse to keyboard, and learning the new position of the insert, delete, and arrow keys. The spacebar response is amazing, and it types extremely quiet. With just a few days you can be up and running on this keyboard with great productivity.

4 out of 5 eggsHuge leap forward, with room for fine-tuning

Pros: As a software developer, I almost avoided this keyboard due to the function keys. However, it won me over:

* Best tactile feel of any PC keyboard, bar-none, except for function keys (which are only bareable).
* Brilliant idea to separate the numeric keypad, and place a backspace and clear key on it.
* Quiet keys, wonderful space bar responsiveness.
* Good, though not perfect, ergonomic angles.
* Snappy magnetic covers and riser feels expensive, as does the matte wrist rest.
* Trim and lightweight, making it possibly the first mobile ergonomic keyboard, easy to move out of the way.
* Looks like a work of art sitting on my desk.

Cons: This keyboard has some obvious flaws that kept me from giving it 5 stars. I am pretty high-maintenance when it comes to ergonomics, so I feel the next generation of this keyboard should include the following improvements, after which I'll give it 6 stars and pay double:

* Function buttons need to NOT get stuck in the pressed position. I can get used to their buttony design if necessary, however making these feel just like the other keys would be a plus.
* I'm not able to find the arrow keys without looking at the keyboard, after months of use. There needs to be a slightly bigger gap separating the main keyboard keys from the arrows and two rightmost columns, for better muscle memory training. Maybe the Backspace could be narrower, and the keys beneath it could taper in towards the width of the Ctrl key. Currently, there's no way to find the arrow keys without looking at the keyboard.
* The Calculator command key should be changed to Insert, an the Insert key should be removed and left open. This will take a frustrating key out of reach, and make it easier to find the arrow keys without looking.
* Hand rest padding isn't deep enough (my hands fall off the edge) and the edge is too hard (padding should wrap over the edge)
* The switch for the command keys should be an Fn button.
* The center-most keys on each hand (6,T,G,B,N,H,Y,7) level-off a bit, making them too much of a stretch. These keys should be angled like their neighbors, or even more so.
* The option to use the left space bar as a backspace key would be huge.

Other Thoughts: Unfortunately, the quality control on this keyboard is a bit below Microsoft hardware standards. Be aggressive about getting one that works perfectly out of the box and during the first few weeks of use. If you have function keys that always stick (even after you get used to it), or half your space bar feels more resistant than the other half, try to get a replacement. When you get one without defects, you'll be quite pleased.

5 out of 5 eggsNice keyboard

Pros: Smaller footprint than the 4000 I upgraded from, wireless, decent price, ergo

Cons: The only con I have found the the lack of a Fn key, not sure I like the switch but not enough to take an egg off

2 out of 5 eggsLooks great, but a few fundamental flaws

Pros: Small, easy to carry/pack in bag and with stylish looks to boot. Quiet typing.

Cons: The key actuation distance is very short...too short for my likes, I kept bumping keys and having them trigger.

The arrow keys are packed in too tight and so I kept hitting the Insert key when trying to do an Arrow Up.

The major flaw is that edge of the padded wrist-rest has a sharp ridge of plastic under it that stabs the wrists. Hard to believe they didn't notice this in the design review - this totally broke the deal for me.

4 out of 5 eggsLove it!

Pros: Easy to use - learning curve only took about 1/2 a workday.
Very comfortable - bought this after much research because I was starting to have wrist pain at work. After using this, it's completely gone.

Cons: The battery doesn't seem to stay in place on the 10-key. I keep having to re-adjust the battery cover to just the right position to hold the battery in just the right spot.

Other Thoughts: Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a good ergonomic keyboard.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: compact
comfortable shape
wireless
separate numeric pad

Cons: no power switch
the location of the number 6 key is wrong
numbers and letters on the keys are simply stickers rather than engraved

Other Thoughts: Overall, I really like this keyboard. Having a separate numeric keypad means I can move it out of the way and bring the mouse closer to the keyboard, which makes for a much more comfortable arrangement. My biggest beef is the location of the "6" key, which is on the left rather than the right, and is pressed with the left index finger rather than the right, which is the way I was taught. Also, there is no power switch. I assume that these will go into sleep mode if not used for a while, but it would be nice if there was a power switch, especially for the numeric keypad since I rarely use it, and swapping the battery is a bit of a pain (it has a plastic flat-head screw securing the battery cover).

Also, for the price, it would have been nice if the characters on the keys were laser engraved, rather than just being stickers that will probably wear away in short order. I wonder if replacement key caps are available. I did use some clear film adhesive to cover the WASD keys, since I tend to use those keys the most...

Personally, I like the feel of the keys, but this is such a personal preference. Basically, if you like the feel of scissor keys, you will like this keyboard.

2 out of 5 eggsWas good until it started malfunctioning

Pros: - Comfortable to use.
- Removable stand to lift keyboard, magnetic attachment is well done.
- Feels solid and well built.
- Looks very neat

Cons: - Switch for function and media keys, wish they could have just used a 'fn' key to hold down instead.
- A bit expensive.
- Started malfunctioning after a couple weeks of use.

Other Thoughts: The keyboard was doing great and I was enjoying it but after a couple weeks of use it started to malfunction. I tried a fresh set of batteries, which did not help. I tried different USB ports, I tried making sure the keyboard was close to the transceiver, I tried reinstalling drivers, I tried removing the Microsoft Keyboard and Mouse Center software. None of this worked. I tried the keyboard on another computer and it malfunctioned there as well.

The malfunctions were intermittent and somewhat inconsistent. Sometimes it would cause commands to respond when typing "rt" like in the words start or art. In Microsoft Word it would bring up find function, or navigation\search, or cause the alt-keys to display on the menus.

When typing in the start menu search weird things would happen. The start menu would close or other programs would just open that I didn't want.

When trying to lock my computer pressing Windows+L it wouldn't lock on the first try. It would take multiple simultaneous key presses to get it to happen.

When typing in an Outlook email it would bring up the alt icons as if I pressed the alt key, which I hadn't.

So not sure why the keyboard started this but I can't get it to stop. It does it on more than one computer and it has fresh batteries and still does it so something is definitely wrong with the keyboard. It is getting returned to where I bought it from and exchanged with another one and hopefully that one will work.

4 out of 5 eggsMicrosoft wirelss keyboard

Pros: It is a bit hard to get used to this new keyboard but I love it. It is very convenient.

Cons: The numeric pad did not come with the battery so I have not use it yet. I have not find any information about what battery the numeric keypad should have. I hope Newegg could send me one.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Keyboard

Pros: Ergonomic, great key placement

Cons: F Keys are buttons and not the same type of keys as the rest of the keyboard

Other Thoughts: This would have been a 5 egg rating if the F keys were not click buttons. The keyboard itself is fantastic. If you like split type keyboards this is great buy.

4 out of 5 eggsVery comfortable

Pros: Very comfortable to type on all day. I enjoy the feel and sound of the keys. Wireless works great in my office with my machine a few feet away under my desk. Feels like a high quality product. Separate numpad and small footprint. Backspace button on the num pad. The rear riser makes for perfect wrist alignment for me.

Cons: I write code on this all day and I do not care for the way the function keys are set up. I keep mine toggled to fn because thats all I need but for someone that would use the media and function keys the physical toggle would be annoying. I hit f5 a lot while programming and it will get stuck some times. I don't think its a flaw in my particular keyboard but a flaw in the design of the function keys. They function keys are not really keys but more like buttons. A stuck function key can really cause a ruckus when debugging.

Other Thoughts: If the function keys and escape were actually keys I think this would be perfect. The arrow keys are a little hard to find without looking, I think I will put a little texture on my up arrow so I can feel where I am at. I would also like to see the software allow for more key customization(remap insert and caps lock) but there are other solutions for that. This was my first ergonomic keyboard. It took me about a half an hour to get fairly used to it and about 8 hours to get proficient.
