Pros: Performed reliably in my gaming rig for almost three years. Upgraded my CPU, motherboard, RAM, and video card at least once during this time period.
Pros: This is my first ergonomic keyboard and I have to say it is much more comfortable than any other keyboard I've used. It took a little bit of time to adjust to the spacing difference between my hands though. I tested all of the keys and they all work, and do not require any more than normal pressure to press the keys, except the spacebar. The software came with other ergonomic suggestions such as the height of the chair, keyboard, and monitor which should help people like me that have back and wrist pain.
Cons: It didn't come with a driver CD. I found the drivers on MS website easily enough though. The spacebar is a little loud, and pressing the extreme edge of it does not work, you need to press it closer to the center.
Overall Review: It has a detachable base that slants the keyboard at a negative angle, which I did not expect. I haven't used the extra buttons, so I can't comment on them.
Pros: The firmware was a little out of date, but you can go to the nokia website and update it. This will speed up its operation. Especially noticeable when turning the camera on. It starts a full 3 seconds faster than before. You can also install download and install the N-Gage gaming application with the new firmware, which gives you access to more 3D games. There's tons of other really nice software online that you can get.
Overall Review: This phone is meant for people that are tech savvy.
