      Good Ergonomic Keyboard and Mouse

      I had the Microsoft Ergonomic Desktop 7000 keyboard and mouse, but the mouse broke, and I looked around for a replacement. I saw that Microsoft had replaced the 7000 model keyboard and mouse with this sculpt ergonomic desktop set. The sculpt ergonomic keyboard has a different design than the 7000 model keyboard, so it takes a little time to become accustomed to it. However, now that I have been using it for a week or so, I like it. The keyboard is smaller than the 7000 model keyboard, partly because the number pad is a separate item (i.e., there are three parts to this desktop set -- keyboard, number pad, and mouse). Since I do not use the number pad so often, I keep it tucked under my monitor most of the time, which allows for more room on my actual desk. The sculpt ergonomic keyboard itself looks like it has chicklet keys (as on a laptop), which initially gave me some concern, but the sculpt ergonomic keyboard works fine and is quieter than the 7000 model keyboard. Two disadvantages of the sculpt ergonomic keyboard as compared to the 7000 model keybard are that (1) you must move a switch in the upper right corner to toggle between the two different tasks assigned to the function keys (e.g., F2 and audio mute are assigned to the same key and you cannot merely hold down the control, alt, or shift key to access one function versus the other function, you must physically move the switch at the upper right corner) and (2) you cannot custom-program any of the keys (and I miss having my programmed keys on the 7000 model keyboard to skip ahead 30 seconds and skip back 5 seconds on a video). The sculpt ergonomic mouse is fine, though I think it is a bit less ergonomic than the 7000 model mouse (i.e., the sculpt ergonomic mouse is more like a regular mouse). The one great frustration that I had with the sculpt ergonomic keyboard and mouse was trying to figure out if it came with a USB transceiver or if you needed to separately purchase a USB transceiver. I never could figure it out (even from Microsoft's website and a call to Microsoft customer service!), so I just ordered it. The box does not list the USB transceiver as included with the contents, and there is nothing written down that informs you whether it is supposed to be there or not. Finally, after a lot of searching on the web, I saw a posting where someone pointed out that the mouse has a place in the battery compartment where the USB transceiver can be stored. A quick look there revealed that the USB transceiver does indeed come with the sculpt ergonomic desktop set and is in the mouse battery compartment. You would think that Microsoft would point that out somewhere on the box, on a package insert, or a sticker placed on the mouse!

      I use this keyboard and mouse all day everyday at the office. I'm very happy with how well the ergonomic side of this keyboard is designed - every key is easy to reach.If I had to purchase another keyboard and/or mouse it would NEVER be this specific keyboard/mouse combo.My computer case is right next to my desk with the dongle plugged in. Both the keyboard and mouse often stop responding and just hang for a second or maybe even half a second, but this causes miss typed words, miss clicks, and is a HUGE time waster!!If there is something that I don't like more about this combo, that would be the mouse. It jumps around randomly and even now, writing the review, I was having a hard time selecting 1 Star since it kept pushing to the right. The courser bounces in every direction at random, right left up down.Save yourself aggravation and time! get another product - like the Microsoft Natural Keyboard 4000 for Business.

        I use this keyboard/mouse 8-10 hours per day, and I noticed a great improvement in my "mouse" shoulder...being able to move the keypad out of the way when I'm not using it allows my to move the mouse in closer and keep my arm parallel with my body.

        Comments about Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic Desktop:

        I'm a coffee shop nomad who spent most of last year recovering from repetitive stress injuries, and needed to seriously create an ergonomic setup for my Macbook Air. I use a Roost stand to loft the screen to a good ergonomic height, and I use this keyboard for typing. (I also use an Evoluent vertical mouse, which is superior to this mouse.)

        I'm very happy with my purchase as the best keyboard out there -- so far. I qualify it because Microsoft could make it even better as I'll detail below.

        Pros:

        The keyboard is split to allow your wrists to remain aligned, and has an attachment that gives it a reverse incline to also help with wrist alignment -- i.e. prevent carpal tunnel syndrome. I had this years ago; trust me, it's no joke. You should always use the reverse incline.

        Also the separate number pad means you can keep your mouse closer to the keyboard, easing the strain on your mouse arm.

        The keyboard is much smaller than its predecessor, the Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000, which I owned and used for years. That keyboard was very helpful, but was quite big. This keyboard is smaller, so easier to put in a backpack and use as a coffeeshop nomad.

        It's also attractive. Has a "manta ray" elegance to it.

        Cons:

        The keyboard seems heavier than it needs to be, and is definitely heavier than the bigger. (Why Microsoft, why?) It's not a deal breaker, I still carry it in my backpack everywhere. But it should be lighter, and would be amazing if this were so.

        Microsoft doesn't support the Mac OSX officially, so most of the functionality works but not all of it. Some of the function keys don't work, but the volume ones do. I mainly wish the split space bar worked, in terms of setting a second function to the right side of the split, so I could use it to reduce mousing or keystrokes.

        The keys are a bit harder to press than they should be. Again, not a deal breaker, but they give more resistance than the 4000.

        Uses a USB dongle to connect to your computer. Really should be Bluetooth. The latest Macbook is moving to USB C, and it's unclear to me if the dongle will work when it is plugged into a hub vs straight into the computer. I tried it with an ethernet to USB hub that had a second USB in on the hub, and it didn't work.

        Conclusion: This keyboard allows me to keep my RSI from flaring up and still be able to travel around to coffee shops and work. So thanks Microsoft, I'm grateful. But I do wish it was lighter, used Bluetooth instead of a dongle, and had OSX support.

          Comments about Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic Desktop:

          I have been programming computers in one context or another for over 20 years and RSI became a serious concern for me about 15 years ago. I started using the older Microsoft ergonomic keyboard with the first model MS released.

          Although I've used a variety of minicomputers and PCs with a wide variety of keyboards, I've increasingly migrated to developing on laptop PCs, with their variously compromised keyboards.

          I bought the MS Sculpt Ergonomic Desktop because I was hoping that Microsoft would eventually produce a more compact version of their older ergonomic keyboard, that I could use with my 14" laptop.

          So far I'm finding it challenging to adapt to the Sculpt keyboard after using the full-size MS ergo keyboard or the more "standard" laptop keyboard on my Dell. The ergo keys are sculted but, following current market prefs, are low and have a short stroke compared to the older-style keyboard. The keyboard is very compact - only about 1" wider than my 14" laptop, so some of the keys, e.g., Backspace and Delete, are both located in somewhat different places and shaped differently not only compared to a full-size standard or ergo keyboard but also compared to the [relatively] standard keyboard on my Dell laptop.

          Nevertheless, I plan to keep this keyboard and I do use it regularly now because it does allow me to place my hands in a more mechanically-correct position.

          As for the Sculpt mouse, it took only a few minutes to get used to it, compared to several other standard-size and travel-size mice I use. Its large size felt a little strange at first, but it's sort of like draping your hand over a softball, and is really quite comfortable.

                I'm going to buy another for my house. This keyboard mouse combo is truly ergonomic. I have had less wrist and shoulder pain since using. I believe having the mouse closer to the keyboard and not using the number pad has helped.The keys are a little hard to get used to at first as its like typing on a laptop keyboard. Once you memorize where the delete/end/home keys are you will be set.It did come with an attachment for the keyboard that I do not care for. I use it without that and have no wrist problems. I think what helped me the most is the mouse as it is very comfortable and I no longer have wrist pain in my right wrist since using.

                  I want to take this keyboard to work with me I love it so much! It's so quiet and soft touch is all you need. I'm finding myself pounding the keys because that's what I'm used to having to do, but this keyboard requires only a soft touch. Great ergo feel to it. The mouse is really nice too. The large size is comfortable to both my husband, who has very large hands, and me with my small hands. I haven't had to use the separate number pad much, but when I have used it, I am finding it slightly difficult to use, but I'm sure it will be fine once I get used to it. In addition, it was super easy to set up. Just unplugged my old stuff, plugged in the new stuff and off to the races! I'm very happy with this purchase. Also, I'd recommend B&H to anyone. The shipping was very fast and the price was beyond compare! All around I'm very happy with this purchase.

                      The keyboard is great also, just took a little time to get used to with it being divied as it is.
                      I would recommentd it to everybody.
                      I would also recommentd B&H to all because of their great service.

                      A long time ergo keyboard user I wanted something new that looked good and was wireless. All in all I really like the keyboard, was able to adapt quickly from my prior ergo board, and key spacing etc seem natural. This would be 5 stars except for below:
                      1) you have to toggle the Function keys - I hate this
                      2) The 10 key is detached - I do not like this as I keep it beside the keyboard and I find it not being on the same "plane" as the keyboard (it sits flat) makes transitioning between the 10 key and the arrow keys strange (my biggest gripe of the keyboard)
                      3) the mouse is a bit strange - I have lost accuracy over my old mouse but I am adjusting.

It jumps around randomly and even now, writing the review, I was having a hard time selecting 1 Star since it kept pushing to the right. The courser bounces in every direction at random, right left up down.Save yourself aggravation and time! get another product - like the Microsoft Natural Keyboard 4000 for Business.

                        Comments about Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic Desktop:

                        I had the Microsoft Ergonomic Desktop 7000 keyboard and mouse, but the mouse broke, and I looked around for a replacement. I saw that Microsoft had replaced the 7000 model keyboard and mouse with this sculpt ergonomic desktop set. The sculpt ergonomic keyboard has a different design than the 7000 model keyboard, so it takes a little time to become accustomed to it. However, now that I have been using it for a week or so, I like it. The keyboard is smaller than the 7000 model keyboard, partly because the number pad is a separate item (i.e., there are three parts to this desktop set -- keyboard, number pad, and mouse). Since I do not use the number pad so often, I keep it tucked under my monitor most of the time, which allows for more room on my actual desk. The sculpt ergonomic keyboard itself looks like it has chicklet keys (as on a laptop), which initially gave me some concern, but the sculpt ergonomic keyboard works fine and is quieter than the 7000 model keyboard. Two disadvantages of the sculpt ergonomic keyboard as compared to the 7000 model keybard are that (1) you must move a switch in the upper right corner to toggle between the two different tasks assigned to the function keys (e.g., F2 and audio mute are assigned to the same key and you cannot merely hold down the control, alt, or shift key to access one function versus the other function, you must physically move the switch at the upper right corner) and (2) you cannot custom-program any of the keys (and I miss having my programmed keys on the 7000 model keyboard to skip ahead 30 seconds and skip back 5 seconds on a video). The sculpt ergonomic mouse is fine, though I think it is a bit less ergonomic than the 7000 model mouse (i.e., the sculpt ergonomic mouse is more like a regular mouse). The one great frustration that I had with the sculpt ergonomic keyboard and mouse was trying to figure out if it came with a USB transceiver or if you needed to separately purchase a USB transceiver. I never could figure it out (even from Microsoft's website and a call to Microsoft customer service!), so I just ordered it. The box does not list the USB transceiver as included with the contents, and there is nothing written down that informs you whether it is supposed to be there or not. Finally, after a lot of searching on the web, I saw a posting where someone pointed out that the mouse has a place in the battery compartment where the USB transceiver can be stored. A quick look there revealed that the USB transceiver does indeed come with the sculpt ergonomic desktop set and is in the mouse battery compartment. You would think that Microsoft would point that out somewhere on the box, on a package insert, or a sticker placed on the mouse!
