This review is from: Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000
extremely comfortable, fantastic array of customization for function keys, quiet, adjustable heights great for carpal tunnel
out of the 3 I've owned all three have just stopped working - usually only one key, never the same key, usually about 6-13 months after purchase.
There's no point in buying an expensive keyboard when about 9 months or so after you buy it, ONE key just stops working without warning. I never dropped any of the three I've owned. I moved with the first one and the third one, but it didn't change the timing of when it suddenly just stopped working. The first one had something spilled on it, but worked just fine after the tactic of turning it upside down on a towel - I thought this had caused the keys to type other characters when pressed 3 months later, and bought a second one. The second one worked just fine for 9 months, then the space bar and q key suddenly stopped working. This was the keyboard that never moved once set up. Thinking maybe something got dropped on it, or my cat sat on it, I got a third, and moved 3 months after purchase. 3 months after the move, the w key stopped working. Every time, the REST of the keyboard worked without flaw, except for the 1-2 keys that stopped working. Not worth purchasing at all.
