    I just got a new laptop computer, and as the keyboard is fairly small, decided to buy a freestanding keyboard for home use. I had owned one of the first generation Microsoft ergonomic boards, and once I got broken in to the different way it felt, really liked it. The new generation boards are even better. Lots of handy keys, usable either as F keys or as specific task keys, very easy to use. My only gripe about this keyboard is since I use a straight keyboard 8 hours a day at work, when I come home at night there is some readjustment for the old fingers. The built in soft wrist rest is nice, too. The 4000 comes with a plastic keyboard lift, which I don't use. It seems to be made for people who have a keyboard drawer that is lower than their desktop so they can have their arms in a neutral position to type. All in all, I would, and have, recommend this keyboard to anyone looking for a more comfortable way to type...and am thinking about investing in one for my work computer at my own expense, so I can bwe comfortable there, too.

    Have used a Microsoft ergonomic for 10+ years. This newer one, although quiet, has a stiff keyboard. I use a keyboard 8-12 hours a day as a medical transcriptionist. I already feel pain in my wrist area because the touch is so stiff compared to previous Microsoft ergonomic keyboards.

        My hands and wrists never tire when I am using an ergonomic keyboard. I have one on each computer that I use. I would not go back. The keyboard can be used with the natural angle of the arm that does ot include bending the wrists.

        I suffered a wrist injury and noticed it wasn't healing. This was especially evident after hours at the keyboard and I could feel stress on the outside of my wrist. My department's IT director ordered me a Microsoft Keyboard (model 4000), and the problems immediately ceased. I liked the keyboard so much that I bought my own for use with my home PC. I could not be happier!

            This is the 4th ergonomic keyboard from Microsoft that I have purchased and used and I refuse to return to the old flat keyboard. Typing is effortless, since I adjusted to the altered keyboard shape with the first one I owned.

            My one complaint, and the reason I have had multiple keyboards is that the letters on the keys wear off in a year or so of use. While I am a touch typist I prefer to have the letters showing.

                When my old ergonomic keyboard died, I read reviews to decide on a new one and ordered this one. When it came, all I had to do was plug it in and it was working. It is even more comfortable than my old one, particularly because of the forward tilt and the articulated keys. The only drawback is that it did not come with a manual, so I don't know how to set up the special function keys, which I think would be very useful.

                                    This is the second one of these keyboards I've bought; the first one failed after several years because I'm rather abusive toward keyboards. The ergonomic shape it very nice, and it works well for me, even being a touch-typist. There's a decent amount of feedback on the keys, as well. I do wish that someone made a mechanical ergonomic keyboard, but the only ones out there are prohibitively expensive. This does the job and does it well.

                                    The keyboard is pretty impressive. Except that the keys are a little hard to press.

                                      This is the second Natural Ergonomic keyboard by Microsoft that I have had since 2001. I LOVE this style keyboard. I believe it has saved me from having health related wrist issues. This keyboard lasts, it works great and it's entertaining! (it's fun to watch coworkers try it for the first time)

                                      Great product for the money!

                                        The first one have a problem with the space bar but they change to another one which was fine a really like it just i need to use more again more because the keyboard split space is is wear but good for me. Also the price is very good too, just make sure if you buy it check the space bar and that's it.

                                          I have been using an Ergo-Keyboard for years now and when mine stop working I went looking for another, I soon came across the Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 USB by Microsoft and placed my order, it got to me sooner then expected and I am verry pleased with all the new features that this one has, now I can control more with less time spent looking.
