Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic Desktop (L5V-00001) just does NOT cut it for me as key's are to 'short'. The center 'arch' is not as significant as the 7000:(. The separation of the numbers pad makes no sense to me and by doing so eliminated the oh so valuable 2nd 'enter' key at the far right of the keyboard. The relocation of the delete, insert, home, end, pg up/down really *****!
For historical perspective, I am leaving my original review below. I have had no issues with connectivity and am happy with battery life, but the space bar is truly a problem and is beginning to cause pain.
I bought this keyboard in March of 2013 and paid $85 for it. I ignored the negative reviews about the space bar. Now, in October of 2014, I am having the same space bar problem as others report. I have to strike the space bar so hard that I am developing sore thumbs. I have been using Microsoft natural keyboards since 1992 and never had a problem. But this one is seriously hurting me. I really appreciate the ergonomics of the natural keyboard, and would be willing to replace it annually at a fair price. But at nearly $400 the price is simply ridiculous.
I have a fine motor control disability and acknowledge that I often have to pay extra for products that accommodate my difficulties, but Microsoft is clearly taking advantage here.
Original review follows
I bought a Microsoft Ergonomic Keyboard twenty years ago when they first hit the market. At the time I was a hunt and peck typist with a fine motor control disability. I still have the disability, but with a MS Natural Ergonomic Keyboard, at least I can type 60 WPM and I touch type easily. On a standard keyboard, it's still hunt and peck. I love the ergonomic part.
I love the wireless part too. I spend much of my workday in a room with a digital projector. I can sit anywhere in that room and work at the computer, using the screen in the front of the room as my monitor. Range appears to exceed 50 feet. When I meet with small groups of students, I can rove around the room and record the activities of each group in a way that allows them and all the other students in the room to instantly note the information being produced by each group.
Battery life is good too. I have two sets of rechargeable AA NiMH batteries which I swap out whenever I get a dodgy response from the keyboard or mouse and I only seem to need to swap batteries about every 3 months.
I received it and everything looks the same. I compared my old set (letters are worn off the keys, silver paint worn off the index clicker for my mouse) to the new one, side-by-side...they look identical. I plugged in the new USB to my monitor, slipped the batteries into each and...well...all is runing perfect and smooth.
The keys on the board are the slightest bit stiffer...but this is because it is new. Just like when you drive a new car, everything feels tight and fresh. With time and use, they will loosen up. Personally, I like the feel of the keys. The space bar is working perfectly fine.
For those that are finding the different sizing of the keys is strange, I can tell you, if you are a muscle memory typist, they are a complete dream. It took me about 2 days to get used to the keyboard, but now, I am miserable typing on a standard keyboard. The wrist rest on the keyboard is amazing and so comfortable.
The mouse...the mouse is awesome. Rest your hand on the table in front of you...you should notice that the natural position your hand wants to take is slightly tilting outward. This is not a coincidence. I am a petite person and I remember the first time I layed my hand on the mouse, I was like "What the!?" It did feel almost like I was resting my hand on a ball. But it did not take me long to realize how comfortable my hand was on it. I am sure if I had a larger hand, it would have been an even easier adjustment. But even with a tiny hand, it fits and works perfectly for me. So darned comfy!!! So, not sure what I like better, the mouse or the board. I can't decide. I guess I love them both equally! My pain completely disappeared when I started using this set over three years ago. I hope Microsoft never stops making this set as it has made a tremendous difference for me.
I have never had a connectivity problem with the set, ever? Maybe this is because I have the USB protruding from my monitor (most monitors come with 2 USB ports on the bottom front left side...just plop it in there, stick the batteries in, depress the tiny light gray connectivity button and you should be set to go). While the distance between my eyes and the monitor is a little over 2 feet, there is at least 36 inches of space between my mouse and the USB (as a crow flies/diagonally speaking). The keyboard rests on my 4G Humanscale swivel shelf attached to the underside of my desk (as does my mouse); the keyboard is "under" the desk, yet, the keyboard connects consistently without hesitation. I never download the accompanying software... I don't ever the buttons on the top of the keyboard, including the zoom, I suppose I could try them...but, I just use the mouse to adjust volume from my monitor, etc. I don't mind the calculator pad on the board, I use it almost every day (what can I say). I think the calculator pad is pretty darn convenient.
I am SOOOO happy I did not hesitate due to the negative reviews and re-purchased! As a keyboard and a mouse, they are a perfect pair. I love this set!
