Microsoft Wireless Sculpt Ergonomic Desktop


Advanced Ergonomic Design

Sculpt Ergonomic Desktop is built on advanced ergonomic principles, with a split keyboard layout that keeps wrists and forearms in a relaxed position, and a cushioned palm rest to provide wrist support. The domed keyboard shape works to reduce and correct wrist pronation that can cause pain and limited mobility.

True Comfort for Lasting Productivity

Sculpt Ergonomic Desktop is designed for productivity, with an eye on ergonomic excellence. By providing a relaxed, comfortable computing experience, it enables you to work without the stress, strain, and discomfort of other keyboards and mice you may have used in the past.

It's All in the Angles

The natural arc keyboard layout follows the curve of your fingertips for a more natural way of typing. Reverse tilt design positions the keyboard at the correct angle to give you a straight, neutral wrist position. Additionally, the shape of the mouse is designed for maximum wrist comfort. Plus its Windows button provides one-touch access to the Windows 8 Start screen.

Designed for Comfort

The Sculpt Comfort Keyboard is packed with ergonomic features including a contoured keyset, removable padded palm rest, and palm lift. These features are designed to encourage a more natural, relaxed positioning of the arms, hands and wrist, providing greater comfort and helping to avoid injury during extended use.

Built for Productivity

Microsoft believes in the constant pursuit of excellence, and is always looking for ways to improve the comfort and productivity of our hardware. The new split spacebar with backspace functionality on the Sculpt Comfort Keyboard is the perfect example. Research shows that 90 percent of people use only their right thumb to hit the space bar, and that the backspace key is one of the most frequently used keys on a keyboard. Knowing this, Microsoft Hardware designers built a larger, split spacebar that includes a backspace bar on the left-hand side. The new design helps improve typing speed and provide improved comfort.

4 out of 5 eggsNot a Ergonomic As Advertized, Keys are Chep

Pros: The layout seems great and the idea of a separate numeric keypad is wonderful. I love the addition t

Cons: the key mechanics and printed letters are not as durable as one would expect for such a high priced and high profile product.
The after 18 months, several letters on the "home row" have worn away.
More importantly, several keys have been acting erratically and either not working or have been getting stuck. This used to only happen when the batteries were low, but now it is happening more consistently and frequently to the point where I can no longer type without my cursor zooming around the page.
With that said, I just got off the phone with MS Tech Support and discovered that the keyboard set has a 3 year warranty and they will be sending me a replacement asap. Phew! :)
Lastly, the software/utility that comes as part of the keyboard and mouse to customize it's settings is pretty useless and after every new pc build or upgrade, I need to uninstall the software in order to have them perform consistently between Windows and "RT" apps.

Other Thoughts: In order to "make this keyboard and mouse" ergonomic, the use MUST make certain that their desk is at a proper height.
If the user's desk is too low, the keyboard and especially mouse terrible and painful to use -- this primarily a problem for the mouse because you hold it "sideways" when compared the a typical mouse. If the desk is too low, your arm/hand rests on your wrist bone - ouch!
If you can, raise your desk or adjust your chairs height, the problem goes away and the ergonomics are back to great.

5 out of 5 eggsLove it or hate it. Personally, I love it.

Pros: My previous keyboard was a Microsoft comfort curve 2000, which I had for years and loved.

This is far, far better.

1) Ergonomics
The design is the best I've typed on, and I'm the kind of guy who goes around to all the hardware stores in town typing gibberish on their keyboards for 10 minutes just to see how they feel. I'm a programmer and spend a good 8-12 hours a day typing on a keyboard, so I need something that is comfortable.
This is that. Placement of keys is excellent, though there will be a bit of a learning curve if you're used to less ergonomic keyboards, and the shallow travel means I don't have to work hard to type. Padded rest is great for my wrists and surprisingly comfortable given how little padding is actually on it, and the detachable reverse tilt stand puts it at just the right angle for me. I work at a standing desk, elbows just above the surface, so probably higher than a lot of people, and even a flat keyboard bends my wrists back slightly.

2) Mouse
I doubt I'll ever want to use another. I've got large palms and short fingers, which means that on normal mice, my ring and little fingers usually get shunted off the edge of the mouse at an odd angle and by the end of the day are incredibly cramped and sore. Not so with this mouse. It fills my palm in a very natural manner and I don't have to bend my fingers to scroll the mouse or anything. I haven't noticed anything about the responsiveness, but then again, I'm just programming, not playing games or working with digital media which require very accurate mice. I've actually found myself using the mouse more than I usually would, forgoing a lot of keyboard shortcuts that I've picked up over the years, just because this mouse is so comfortable.

3) Wireless
I've never been a fan of wireless, knowing them to be much more flaky than wired, but so far I haven't had a problem with this keyboard and mouse. I type at about 100 wpm, and I've never had it drop letters.

4) Drivers
I work on Linux, so sometimes drivers are a pain, but this plugged in and worked within 5 seconds. No headaches. Can't vouch for Windows, even though they're both Microsoft products.

5) Magnets!
Love the use of magnets for covers and detachable parts. Best idea ever.

6) Batteries
Battery life has been great. I've worked on it for over a month now and haven't had to replace the batteries. Given, I do switch the mouse off most weekends and in the evenings when I remember.

7) 10key/numpad
I use the numpad fairly often actually, so it was nice to have that without it getting in the way of the mouse. I've actually moved it over to my left side and have learned to use it with my left hand (might tell you a little something about the kind of guy I am) and it works well over there. My hands never really move out of a 60 degree angle from my body.

Cons: 1) The function keys
This was a terrible idea. They are small and really hard to press, and their quality seems surprisingly poor compared to the rest of the keyboard. I've actually remapped a lot of my keys and key combinations so I don't have to mess with those. If you're comfortable doing that at your workstation, then I recommend you do. They are awful.

2) Wireless
I still don't like wireless. I haven't had any problems with it at all yet, but it just adds one more thing for me to remember. Batteries. I know there will come a day where I'm out of batteries and the keyboard stops, which is going to be a pain.

Other Thoughts: As much as I love this keyboard and mouse, I would not recommend it to most users. Most people do not spend as much time typing as I do, nor are most users comfortable remapping their keyboards and learning new key layouts to make up for shortcomings of their keyboards. If you value the ergonomics of a keyboard above everything else, then definitely consider this. Otherwise, I'd recommend a more traditional keyboard.

5 out of 5 eggsBest ergonomic keyboard I've used yet!

Pros: Comfort, lightweight and the Chiclet keys are more responsive to type on than standard keyboards.
The mouse took some getting used to but it feels great and works well.

Cons: Would like to have seen the number pad as part of the keyboard because it sometimes gets in the way of the mouse.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this to others who use ergonomic keyboards.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I have two of my users that had carpel tunnel and gave them this keyboard and mouse. They love them and also how sleek and enclose the letters are on the keyboard. The keyboards also stay clean because no food or objects can fall behind the letters. Overall this combo set is great and priced correctly.

Cons: none for now. Very Satisfied

4 out of 5 eggsHigh marks, but not perfect.

Pros: Slim form and very little wasted space. However, it's solid and heavy enough to stay put on some very nice rubber feet. The magnetic battery compartment covers are a GREAT idea. No more broken covers, ever. I've had excellent battery life, despite using it daily (usually for 8+ hours a day) 7 days a week for the past 7 months. Unlike some other reviewers here, I LOVE the mouse shape. I'm a big guy, with large hands, and the high arch on the top of the mouse is very comfortable for me. The mouse also tacks very well, even when used on the portion of my desk that had become too 'polished' from years of use for my older MS mice to do so.

Cons: HATE HATE HATE the double function Media/Function keys at the top. I would have preferred them separate, even at the cost of more space. Also, they are too small. Especially since the ESCAPE key is lumped in with them. Speaking of the escape key, it's the one key on my board that I have problems with. It sticks. Or jams on the way down, making it difficult to depress. Again... HATE the tiny function combo keys. I can't say it enough. Also, not a fan of the crowding on the Delete, Home, End, Pg Up, Pg Dn, and Insert keys. I'm forever hitting Insert... which I never use intentionally... and hitting pg up when I mean to hit pg dn... and pg dn when I mean to use the arrows.

Other Thoughts: I would love to see a version of this keyboard that has standard keys. I'm not a huge fan of the 'laptop' feel on these... though I have adapted. And again, I HATE the tiny keys at the top. It would be nice to see the next version get proper keys across the top for the Function/Media keys.

1 out of 5 eggs10 key dead after about a month

Pros: Mouse:
It Seems too big at first, but I think it fits the bill. Great mouse, works great with my media center and suits all my needs.

It's a mixed bag. It seems sturdy and I like the way the magnetic battery cover comes off the back. But, I just can't seem to type correctly with this keyboard. I'm old school I guess.. but getting used to it.

Includes a separate wireless 10key too, cool!

Cons: Mouse:
Maybe a little too big for a causal user.

If you aren't all crazy ergonomic or whatever, I say stick with what works. I think I still like the old school shaped keyboard better.

This died about 1 month of use. REALLY MICROSOFT? Your troubleshooting steps NEVER SOLVE A PROBLEM.
I am attempting to arrange replacement but Microsoft customer support treats me like a fool and is slow.

Other Thoughts: I know my computer hardware, but took a leap of faith on this one. I didn't read up on it first and bought it. It's a wireless mouse, and keyboard designed by Microsoft right? They got to have their act together right?

Ergo is not for me. there seems to be some serious quality control with this keyboard. I don't enjoy wasting my time chatting online and or on the phone trying to get garbage to work I know is defective... maybe i'll get my replacement, that remains to be seen.

I am buying a Logictech next time.

1 out of 5 eggsVery disappointed

Pros: Ergonomic
Interesting and slim design

Cons: Stand-alone number pad stopped working after 2.5 months
Keyboard keys stop functioning randomly.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this item for my mother as an early birthday present on October 4th, 2014 to replace her old Microsoft Natural Ergonomic keyboard 4000 that she's had for years. So many years, in fact, that all her letters have nearly disappeared from the keys.

I did a lot of research before purchasing this product for her since she still wanted something ergonomic but, also wanted something slimmer to fit inside her keyboard rest. This model seemed the perfect choice and she absolutely adored it until problem began.

So I did some more research and followed all the suggestions to uninstall and re-install the keyboard mouse software, replace the batteries and try the desktop setup on other computers. All of it to no avail because the number pad is still dead and the keyboard still stops functioning randomly.

Time to buy her a new keyboard that isn't this model because it clearly is sub-standard and I'll never recommend it to anyone...ever. If I could give the product 0 eggs I would in a heartbeat.

5 out of 5 eggsScupt Wireless Keyboard

Pros: This keyboard and mouse decrease wrist aggravation. The keyboard feels similar to a Microsoft Natural Keyboard - which is good IMO. Keyboard and mouse appear to be well constructed. The wireless connectivity has been flawless. It looks good without being tacky.

Cons: The angle between the two halves of the keyboard could be user adjustable. The action of the keys on the keyboard could be slightly deeper (more conventional rather than laptop).

Other Thoughts: Great mouse keyboard combo

1 out of 5 eggsUnreliable... such a shame

Pros: Feels great to type on. Comfortable. Short keystroke is great. Wireless is great.

Cons: Top row function keys are different style, have very little feedback.

Unreliable. I'm on my third replacement

Other Thoughts: This is a follow-up to my 5/22/2014 review. My second keyboard had worked great for about six months before it started exhibiting very similar issues I had before. I tried new batteries, moving the USB receiver to different ports, even tried other computers. The problem is clearly with the keyboard.

I'm on my third replacement keyboard, as is one of my coworkers who has also been having similar problems.

When the keyboard works it's wonderful. However once it starts having problems, then you can't type without frustration of keys being missed and other keys being input that you aren't even typing.

The ONLY good thing is Microsoft has been good about replacing it. Their shipping is fast and I get the new keyboard within a few days.

Too bad the keyboard just starts malfunctioning after some time. It is a shame, because it is a really nice keyboard to type on.
