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 *****!
Fortunately, the mouse works well. I bought a wrist support brace of sorts and I use it while using this mouse. You have your hand at kind of an angle in a more natural position. The mouse fits my (big) hand perfectly, and the travel is very nice. I didn't notice any lag in the wireless technology. For a complaint, the scroll wheel seems abnormally stiff.
Now, I'll be the first to admit that I had to re-learn how to type using the ergonomic design, but I don't believe this is well-thought out to begin with. For one, it's a split design, which isn't required for it to be ergonomic, but that's the way they've decided to go.
Unfortunately, the placement of the keys seems to totally random. They expect you to use your pinkie to use a period, and they have random keys larger size to fit the split design. Why is the 'N' key the one that is gigantic, but the period button is not? It just doesn't make sense.
Then we get to the spacebar. There are two spots you're meant to hit the spacebar on either side of the split design, but the point of pressing is actually in the middle. So it's hit or miss whether or not it's actually going to register. It's loud, loose, clunky and feels bad. It's one of the worst spacebars I've ever used.
On top of that, the whole thing feels like very cheap plastic. Of course, I'm used to cheap-feeling keyboards, but this is the first one that cost me nearly $80. The support is thin, the elevation device underneath feels like it might snap at any moment, and the keyboard itself feels more like $10 than $80.
- Well-built mouse
- Lots of extra function buttons
- Cheap keyboard
- Bad spacebar
- Questionable key design
- Bad padding on keyboard support
- Big wireless receiver
- Stiff scroll wheel on mouse
I've used ergonomic style keyboards for many years. This mouse seemed HUGE when I first received it. It was much larger than ones I'd used before. Now I can't imagine using anything else. It does have a natural curve on the mouse that allows your hand to rest comfortably on top of it with very little movement or strain on your hands.
The keyboard functions very well. Have no issues with it at all. Would highly recommend.
As other purchasers - and so many forums - have stated, the receiver on this setup is terrible. You can't have it near speakers, wifi, cordless phones, or anything else that may cause interference So, the receiver pretty much won't work in a modern, wireless office.
I have messed around with positioning the receiver and watched my performance get worse and worse. Skipped letters, typing lags, multiple letters - it was getting ridiculous! I finally reworked my entire desk to try to get better receiver performance, and the keyboard stopped working altogether. Dead. The device manager says it's installed, and reinstalls it promptly when I uninstall it, but it doesn't type one single thing. No "Enter". No "CTRL". Nothing.
It's under warranty, but it will cost me as much to get it back to America for a refund as this lemon of a product cost to begin with.
Save yourself the money and headaches and don't buy this keyboard. I will never trust another Microsoft peripheral after the pain this has put me through.
