Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Microsoft Sculpt Comfort Keyboard

Contoured for comfort
Designed for comfort

The Sculpt Comfort Keyboard is packed with ergonomic features including a contoured keyset, removable padded palm rest, and palm lift. These features are designed to encourage a more natural, relaxed positioning of the arms, hands and wrist, providing greater comfort and helping to avoid injury during extended use.

Built for productivity

Microsoft believes in the constant pursuit of excellence, and is always looking for ways to improve the comfort and productivity of our hardware. The new split spacebar with backspace functionality on the Sculpt Comfort Keyboard is the perfect example. Research shows that 90 percent of people use only their right thumb to hit the space bar, and that the backspace key is one of the most frequently used keys on a keyboard. Knowing this, Microsoft Hardware designers built a larger, split spacebar that includes a backspace bar on the left-hand side. The new design helps improve typing speed and provide improved comfort.

Perfect for Windows 8

The Sculpt Comfort Keyboard is equipped with hotkeys that give you one-touch access to some of the most commonly used functions in Windows 8, so you can search, share, or access your settings in the blink of an eye.

Problems -------- - The Space/Backspace key is a neat idea, but in practice, it was just too hard to get used to.
K. Vu
The curve in the middle takes a little getting used to, but you quickly get over it and typing becomes as easy as it is comfortable.

I have been using the Microsoft Natural Keyboard series for years (the ones with the split keys), and I love those keyboards.

First, let me start out by saying that my wrists are very picky about what keyboard to use. Prior to this I used the Microsoft Natural (split keys) and Logitech Wave keyboards. Each had their issues, but they were the only ones that didn't hurt me. The reason for dumping each of those keyboards was that the key action over time degraded to a point where numerous keys became sticky.

So far, the Sculpt keyboard works for me in my two primary concerns for a keyboard: comfort and key action. There are feet on the front edge of the keyboard that can be deployed so that the keyboard will tilt slightly away from you - all keyboards should have this. The palm rest is a good size and is just the right firmness. I'm not a huge fan of how the keys are shaped (the overall curve of the keyboard), but after a few weeks of use, still no wrist problems.

Even though the keyboard does not have mechanical switches, the key action is good for me. The keys are light, responsive, and quiet. There are full size arrow keys and the "Del/Home/End/PgUp/PgDn" keys are laid out in a reasonable manner.

Problems
--------

- The Space/Backspace key is a neat idea, but in practice, it was just too hard to get used to. I switched it back to a normal space key (even though I almost never use it).
- I would have preferred larger Function keys. Having a tiny F5 key is not great considering I am a programmer
- There is a mechanical switch that engages the Function keys' secondary function. Since I almost never use the secondary functions, it's not a huge problem for me, but it is annoying when I have to.

So the keyboard is not perfect, but at this price it wins on my 2 key points: comfort and key action. Also, there was a minimal learning curve moving from the Logitech Wave to this keyboard.

My beloved Microsoft Natural Multimedia Keyboards have all failed after years of solid, but creaky, service; not to mention they were discontinued over a decade ago. I was hoping to find a solid replacement with the Sculpt Keyboard but unfortunately it doesn't quite make it.

Pros:
+ Full size keyboard with a very convenient and small footprint
+ Wireless, decent range, excellent responsiveness (haven't tried with gaming, though)
+ Easily detachable, but still secure, wrist rest
+ Very quiet keyboard overall, key presses make a noticeable sounds but much less than most other keyboards

Cons:
- Keys require far too much pressure to depress which results in too many mistakes
- The keyboard does not feel all that ergonomic. My hands do not quite fit the "natural" curvature of the keyboard.
- The function keys are too small
- I hate having to switch the keyboard from the blue media/shortcut keys and the white function keys
- The split space bar/backspace, multi-function keyboard thing was nice in theory but provides almost know practical benefit. Since no other keyboards support this feature, it does not make sense for me to get used to this feature only to not have it on all other keyboards.

Overall I think this keyboard is a failure. The need for so much pressure to depress each key, lack of true ergonomics (at least, for me), and unusual function/media key switching make this keyboard awkward and therefore it fails at its one and only goal: to be a solid and functional keyboard. As background, I have slightly larger-than-average hands if that helps to give some context to this review. Maybe people with slightly smaller or larger hands will have a different experience.

Awkwardly written on my soon-to-be-returned Microsoft Sculpt Keyboard...

I agree with David Koehler's review; the layout and having to toggle a switch to access the function and special keys is a pain.

I purchased the Microsoft Sculpt Comfort Keyboard as a replacement for a kaput Microsoft Ergonomic 4000. I wanted to carry the Sculpt keyboard around with my laptop to use if I'm going to be working on it for an extended period of time.

Some things I've noticed:
* There is no Pause/Break key. Some applications use the Pause/Break key to do stuff and I'm also used to using Win-Pause/Break to launch the System Information dialog. For example, SQL Server Management Studio uses Alt-Break to terminate a query.
* There is no FN key. Instead you must toggle a switch to access the hot key functions in the top row.
* The keyboard doesn't appear to be modifiable via the Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Center so I can't remap keys.

I'm also not sure what the battery light is for. The batteries that came with the keyboard lasted about a week before the keyboard wouldn't work. I popped new batteries in and things started working again. The light never came on.

The keyboard is compact, especially if you remove the wrist pad. However the keys are "squished" into the new layout making typing somewhat cumbersome. The curve is nice but not as pronounced as the 4000. I'm a touch typist and I find my typing affected (i.e. I'm slower) because of these last two things.

Pro:
-ergonomic without the split keyboard.

Con:
-New split spacebar feature is unnecessary
-No indicator lights for Num Lock or Caps Lock.
-I hate the fact that it has a toggle switch to change the Function keys to volume and other function buttons. I would rather have a "Fn" key or at the least, move the toggle closer to the spacebar. This was overall a terrible design feature. When someone comes to talk to me at my desk, I want to be able to Mute my music right away. Not, fumble around pressing buttons, then realizing I have to toggle, curse under my breath, then press the button again.
