    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.

          Really awesome keyboard, meets all my needs and it is wired so no snooping!

          The only issue I have is it is a little overwhelming at first, but after a week or so you get used to it.

          Very comfortable.

            Had one for many years until a spill of liquid fried it. Tried a Logitech ergonometric one because it had more programable keys but it kept freezing. Have gone back to the Microsoft but wish they would have even more programable keys.

            Have been using this model of keyboard for about 10 years. Started a new job and couldn't take the old one with me so I bought a new one. Everything about this keyboard is great. The only drawback is that it is not wireless. Highly recommend.

              If you spend any significant time keyboarding, get this keyboard! If you try it and it feels wierd using it ... give it 10 minutes and you'll never want to go back to a straight keyboard again. Straight keyboards stress your wrists ... this one does not. The many special function keys are a bonus not to be overlooked.

It was as simple as a click and a few questions and I had it within 2 days! I am going to definitely use this company in the future!

                              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.

                                      Prompt shipping from B&H, and those users we have who need an ergo keyboard are very pleased.

                                      I honestly cannot work without this keyboard. Comfortable and reasonably priced. Bought it for myself at work when I switched jobs because I couldn't live without it.

                                      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.
