Works for me.
on November 17, 2011
I've used several Microsoft Comfort Curve 2000 keyboards as well as the split Natural keyboard. I bought the 3000 to use for work at my programming job.
The first few days that I used the 3000, I wasn't sure if I going to like it. It was a little rough, but nowhere near the shock of getting used to the Natural keyboards. I spent the first couple of days mistyping somethings, but I'm used to it now.
A few points:
* Typing is very quiet. I work in an open area with others, so I like that I'm not making a lot of noise.
* There's not a lot of tactile feedback. Pretty much the opposite of the old IBM PS/2 keyboards. That took a little while to get used to, but the smoothness and quiet makes it worth it.
* The keyboard feels much more solid and the keys don't feel as cheap and unsure as they did on the 2000.
* My main complaint of the 2000 was the noisy, sloppy, piece of junk space bar. This is fixed in the 3000. The space bar is quiet and tight -- it feels like all the other keys.
* It is a nice space saver.
* I really like the placement of the delete key.
* My beloved calculator key and volume keys are there, but this time they don't take up so much real estate!
