Customer Reviews

This is a great keyboard and very comfortable to type on.
Blake
Ultra thin, light and compact - I use it for my home/office business laptop keyboard and pack it when I travel, it easily fits into my backpack.
T. Barnes
It started acting weird after the first month where it would suddenly start endlessly repeating a keystroke while typing fast.

AARGG! AARGG!

MICROSOFT DISCONTINUED THIS KEYBOARD!

Luckily, I was able to modify the Microsoft Sculpt Mobile Keyboard so it actually is better than the Keyboard 5000 for HALF THE PRICE. See my review there: B009KG9K74

--- UPDATE: 6/8/2013
This is still, in my opinion, the best ergonomic keyboard - that is lightweight, inexpensive.
To get around the slow waking time, I repeatedly tap the sound down alternating with the sound up buttons on the upper right for a fraction of a second. This will wake up the keyboard without entering a character. This reduces any frustration with the startup time. And insures no wrong characters are typed in.

--- FIRST REVIEW: 4/1/2012
Microsoft changed this keyboard's name from the Microsoft Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 6000 to the Microsoft Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 5000. Then it raised the price by about $5.00. The older named model is still available from other retailers for the lower price.

The term "Microsoft Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 6000" is used for the keyboard plus number pad combination.

I've used every ergonomic keyboard available. Microsoft simply makes the best, most affordable ergonomic keyboards. The price is important since keyboards may last only a year or less with me for all the typing I do.

This keyboard is also the best of Microsoft's ergonomic keyboards. It feels so good, that I have standardized on it for my computers.

Advantages:
1. Ergonomic curve is simply the best for avoiding carpal tunnel syndrome.

There are so many great reviews of this product that I cannot add anything new. I am writing this short review to clarify a very important fact. I purchased the keyboard assuming it was compatible with the Kindle Fire HD 8.9. IT IS NOT. When I couldn't pair it with my Kindle Fire HD 8.9, I called Kindle support. They were nice, but were unable to help me. I then called Microsoft support and after dancing through many menu's and two technicians it was determined that the Microsoft Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 5000 will not work with the Kindle Fire HD 8.9.

For those of us who enjoy using this keyboard, I am happy for you.
I was really pleased with the ergonomic shape, the light weight, the wirelessness, and the omission of number pad and wrist rest (both of which I am better off without). Also, it doesn't slide off my knees.

It also connected far more easily than the Microsoft Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 6000 (see my review on that product's page). Maybe the the 5000 has a better-written getting started guide.

Then I started using it, and quite soon I discovered I had no [Home] key and no [End] key. I use both of these quite frequently in word processing and spreadsheet work. I asked some friends how to reprogram maybe F8 thru F12, which I don't recall using in the last 5 years, or maybe even the Windows key which really has no use that you can't do with something else.

Also, I discovered the [Esc] key, another of the most useful keys, is half-sized, and about a third the size of the Windows key, making [Esc] harder to strike than it should be.

Before I heard back from them, I encountered something worse. Intermittently, the keyboard will repeat characters llllllliiiiikkkkkkkkkkkkeee tttthhhhiiiiiiiiiiiiiiis .

Using another keyboard, I searched the web for troubleshooting advice. Apparently, the 5000 repeats keys if there's another bluetooth enabled device turned on somewhere nearby. This makes it nearly unusable in a workplace where one has coworkers. It also makes it unusable in the circus I call home.

About the time I learned this, I discovered the [Home] and [End] keys are Function mode keys otherwise used for something else ([Left Shift] and [Del], I think it was).

Back it goes. The number of problems with this keyboard exceeds my desire to figure them out.

A useful lightweight keyboard that you might want to consider is the Logitech K400.

I will update this later if anything changes, but for now. . . this keyboard is great.
I've used two other iPad Bluetooth keyboards. Both were okay. They connected fine, but in the case of the first (built into an iPad case), the keyboard was simply too cramped to be useful.
I tried some others I found and finally settled on a Mac keyboard clone. It was a lot better, only cost about $20, but was still significantly "in the way" when typing. I'm accustomed to Windows-style keyboards, and I like a full-size unit.
Finally, I tried this Microsoft Mobile 5000. It was $35 from one of the Amazon resellers. I only got it last night, but my experience with it so far has been absolutely perfect. I can type on it without worrying about hitting the wrong key (any more than normal). It is light, thin and easy to carry.
I do wish it came with some sort of simple slipcase to store it in, but it doesn't. No stars off for of that, because I was never told to expect a case. It is a keyboard, pure and simple, and it does the job beautifully.
I don't know about battery life yet, and if it doesn't work out well I will update this review. But for now, it looks like a real winner.
