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.

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.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat keybord but bad mouse

Pros: Keyboard is good look design, and type comfortable, I like the keyboard tactile impression. And the number part can use with left hand or independent, this is also a design that I like.

Cons: 1. A little expensive.
2. Mouse is so bad to use, Comfort Mouse but let me more pain. This is what I feel.

Other Thoughts: If I can only buy keyboard, then I will chose this product again.

4 out of 5 eggsClose to perfection if it weren't wireless

Pros: If not for a few issues mostly related to wireless connectivity, this could have been the best keyboard ever. It's comfortable, has a fantastic modern shape, has excellent key feel, it's quiet, the separate numpad saves space, and it has a slick magnetically attached raiser for the palm rest. Even the battery cover is held on with magnets - no screwdriver needed and no tabs to accidentally break off. Very slick.

Cons: Wireless glitches - It often misses the second letter when I begin typing. Also if you hold a key down to repeat a character it will stop repeating after 5 seconds or so.
Stuck keys - The function keys have a tendency to get physically stuck down, making other keys not function properly.
It has a physical switch to toggle between function keys and other functions, and I don't like physical switches that feel like they're going to wear out or break over time.

Other Thoughts: If this keyboard was available in a wired USB model, I'd buy that and would be writing rave reviews to everyone I know. But it's wireless and has some glitches, so I'm not.

4 out of 5 eggsmostly a great design but bad quality

Pros: short stroke keys (more like a laptop); detachable number pad; ergo design; small and lightweight; mouse glids well; magnetic battery compartment covers

Cons: bad quality - left CTRL key stopped working

Other Thoughts: I tried the MS 4000 keyboard first but it was too big and the keys too clickity and stroke too deep. Started using the Sculpt and loved it. At first. Then the left CTRL key started being non-responsive. Being a programmer this is a show stopper. I'll try a replacement but seeing the other reviews here doesn't give me hope. Kudos to MS for have that number pad separate as it saves space & weight, gets me 'centered' better, and puts the mouse close to my keyboard ( = less movement of my right hand switching back and forth).

3 out of 5 eggsGreat design, low quality

Pros: Its small, comfortable, and saves space

the function key is a switch so no more accidently enabling the media keys. I constantly had this problem with the 4000 series. F5 means debug why is this... oh media lock. The switch is a lot harder to accidently press, but I miss the light indicators for all the locks that were on the 4000.

Cons: Its cheap, real cheap quality. I've actually gone through 5 before finding a good one. Either the receiver has issues, the keys are clipping the edges and getting caught or outright falling off. The "good" one occasionally will have a key stick, which has caused me to crash during docking attempts quite often in kerbal space program.

Other Thoughts: This is a great keyboard, I love the design. I don't really use the numbered keypads any more so having a detachable one allows me to save space on my desk. I just wish the quality of this keyboard was a better. And I wish there was an option for a wired version. The price of the keyboard does not reflect the quality.

2 out of 5 eggsNice when it works

Pros: - Comfortable to type on
- Looks neat and futuristic

Cons: - Different buttons for function keys, escape, (top row keys). These are not very tactile friendly buttons.
- Switch for function keys vs. media keys is rather annoying.
- Poor quality control

Other Thoughts: After about a month of use the keyboard started to malfunction. While typing, if pressing the R or S key commands would be initiated. Almost as if the ALT key was stuck. I tried tapping the ALT keys a few times (sometimes they get stuck on in Windows) but that didn't' help. After much hassling, testing, trying new batteries, switching the receiver to different USB ports, etc. I found it was the keyboard that was malfunctioning. I had it replaced by the reseller and the replacement has been working well for about 4 months so far.

A coworker of mine also bought on of these, and after about 3 months of use hers started to malfunction. When typing something would happen and it would activate some commands, and when you tried to use the mouse to click back where you were it would select everything or a section of text. New windows would open and all kinds of things would happen. We tried new batteries, tried the receiver in different USB ports, etc. but nothing fixed it. We tried a standard wired keyboard and it worked fine, so we know this keyboard was malfunctioning.

Both of the keyboards bought malfunctioned. Unfortunately since the one my coworker bought was working for 3 months, the reseller wouldn't exchange so we had to do a warranty replacement through Microsoft. I called their 800 number and was transferred 3 times, then the call dropped after waiting on hold for a few minutes. I tried the MS website and MS Store websites, neither of which were helpful (including their chat support). I called the 800 number again and finally got transferred to the correct group, which initiated the warranty replacement. It only took about an hour of frustration to get the warranty replacement started on a keyboard. Ridiculous... They sent a new one out, but didn't want the old broken one back. So now I have a broken keyboard I have to figure out how to recycle. They don't even want their junk back, which really has to say something I think...

My coworker has a new keyboard and it has been working fine for the past few days. However I think if either of our keyboards start malfunctioning, then i'm going to throw it in the trash and go get a wired keyboard. It's a shame really as its a good ergonomic keyboard. I hope we just had a bad luck run and they aren't all like this....

Something that took me a while to get used to, was not having a Y on the left side and not having a G on the right side. I taught myself to type so I don't type the normal correct way. Not a big deal, it just took me a few weeks to get used to. But I don't see why they couldn't have just have two Y's and two G's as there appears to be room for that. Nothing to complain about, just an observation / wish.

I rated this item two eggs because both keyboards we bought had to be replaced due to malfunctions and MS support was terrible. I hope things improve otherwise I won't be buying any more Microsoft hardware.

1 out of 5 eggsSave your money or get another product

Pros: Ergonomic keyboards are fantastic! EVERY single person working in an office environment should be using an ergonomic keyboard.
The design is great - every key is can be reached with comfort
I do believe MS makes great ergonomic keyboards and I would say skip this one, skip this mouse, and get a wired 4000 or 4000 business one.

Cons: My computer case is next to my office desk and often both the keyboard and mouse lag and keys I type don't come through or I get double letters - this is a huge time waster!
An "ergonomic" mouse is not necessary, imo.
Furthermore, this MS ergonomic mouse that came with the keyboard is HORRIBLE! the courser just bounces around on its own. This prevents my computer from going to sleep; and if it is in Sleep Mode, it wakes up.

If it's not evident by my review, i'm going to be returning this keyboard/mouse and getting the Microsoft Natural Keyboard 4000 for Business.

Save your money!
