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!

3 out of 5 eggsHope you're not a touch typist

Pros: The ergonomics seem good, although this is my first ergo keyboard. Quiet.

Cons: Too many batteries. Arrangement of main keyboard number keys is crazy - are you supposed to hit 3 different number with the forefinger of your left hand? That's not what Mrs. Rowan taught me back in 1967.

Other Thoughts: Do the designers actually know how to type? When typing large amounts of text it is both faster and more convenient to use the upper row numbers rather than lifting your right hand to use the number pad. I am new to ergo keyboards so do not know how common this is, but the 6 key is on the left side of the split. You are supposed to use your RIGHT forefinger to type a 6 as well as a 7. Totally impossible on this keyboard unless you lift your right hand and cross it over to the left side. Otherwise, I am liking this keyboard. I just wish the 6 was in the right place.

3 out of 5 eggsWarning

Pros: comfortable, one usb adapter

Cons: lots of batteries

Other Thoughts: WARNING: The left space bar is not customizable on this version. You cannot set it up to act as a backspace.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Nearly same layout as MS Natural KB 4000 that I loved, Keys have a great feel to them, Much smaller footprint on the desk, Stylish look - even my wife loved it. Once you use the mouse for a bit, that is great too.

Cons: I hope I don't lose the number pad, 5 batteries to keep this running seems like overkill.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Upgrade

Pros: More ergonomic than the previous model due to the lack of 10 key pad and thanks to the new laptop-style, low profile easy actuating keys.

I'm actually using the wrist rest negative incline attachment because it actually looks and feels like it fits the keyboard naturally unlike the previous model which looked more like an afterthought.

The mouse has a flush-mounted back button which doesn't require any thumb movement and it has a really handy (no pun intended) windows 8 start menu button. Also the mouse tracks so much better on my old desk than previous versions.

The mouse's scroll wheel is much better than the previous model. It has nice solid clicks when scrolling up and down and side to side.

Cons: Two things: I wish the mouse was even more tilted so my hand could lay on its side and I wish it didn't cost $130 (I still gladly forked out the money for two combos anyhow:)

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Keyboard

Pros: Best looking ergo keyboard I've ever seen/owned. Keys are soft to the touch and very responsive. Mouse is very easy to use. Magnetic latches are amazing. Detatchable number pad

Cons: Not really a con for me right now but in the idea of having to shop for 3 different types of batteries is annoying. Hopefully the battery life is as long as they estimate.

Other Thoughts: I have used the microsoft 4000 ergo keyboard for several years now so going from that keyboard to this one isn't much of a difference. Having the shallower keys makes it feel like I'm typing faster but it could be all in my head.

I tried out the microsoft ergo 7000 mouse a few years ago and after 2 weeks of use I could not get used to it. Not sure if this mouse is designed a differently in terms of shape or height but this one fits much better in my hand than the 7000.

Lastly, not necessarily a con which is why I'm listing it here but coming from the ergo 4000 to this keyboard, the only adjustment I'm still trying to get used to is the home, end, insert, delete, page up, and page down locations. They are the only keys I still have to glance down at due to them not being in their previous location.

All in all, I like this keyboard so much I may even get one for my home office. I'm using the 4000 there as well.
