Very comfortable but very cheaply constructed,
This review is from: Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 (Personal Computers)
This keyboard is great. A nice feel, comfortable layout, I suppose I must admit I'd prefer better keys as I like a quality laptop type keyset than traditional desktop keys. The buttons are a little "gummy" but I can look that all aside as it's not too much an issue than a minor annoyance and this is the only half way descent ergonomic keyboard that is reasonably priced.
The main flaw is in its construction. Herein lies its downfall. I've never used something more poorly constructed. It will die if you spill ANYTHING on it. For 50-80$ I'd expect a keyboard to have some sort of resistance to spills. Now, I wouldn't expect to submerge it or poor a keg onto it, but I've had cheap 10$ keyboards survive far worse catastrophes than this one and continued working as though nothing happened.
From someone that "suffers" from carpal tunnel syndrome I cannot use any other keyboard without my wrists screaming in agony. So, I am stuck with this keyboard or buying something that costs hundreds of dollars. Granted I do like this keyboard, but I am counting the days until the next time an accident occurs and have to replace it... again.
