        I like the ergonomics of the keyboard. The keys are not as soft as some keyboards but soft enough. Unfortunately the keys get stiffer quickly and I have to by a new keyboard every 7-12 months.

            Comments about Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 for Business:

            I am an editor and writer. I love this keyboard for so many reasons that I can't explain them all.

            Pros: I love how the keyboard is shaped and fits my typing so much better and it seems so much nicer to lay my hands on and type! I like how they placed the quick buttons and overall programming of they keys for shortcuts so that I can easily use my function keys as operation keys for convenience. it really makes it so much easier to use.

            Cons: I had to learn to type the right way instead of my fingers just typing and going where they want, now i'm forced to know and relearn where my fingers should go and what fingers should hit which keys. It takes me a few seconds sometimes. Hopefully soon it will be back to muscle memory.

                We bought 5 of these keyboards for our office. They're great - very ergonomic, comfy to use, and lots of features. Very quiet keyboard too. Highly recommended.

                  I use the keyboard with a Dell Vostro PC. This is my third Microsoft Natural Ergonic Keyboard. Unfortunately, a cup of coffee spilled into the keyboard does render the product useless. (Hence the need for this purchase). This is the most comfrtable keyboard for people with large hands. The shape of the layout increases typing speed and accuracy since it is difficult to press the wrong key caused by having one's arms and hads too close to the body.

                    If you have never used an Ergonomic keyboard, the design could through you off. The 'wave' look certainly is a conversation starter with co-workers, but I love it. I feel no pain in my wrists and fingers and the keyboard is so comfortable and easy to use. Some of the included settings, such as favorites for Frequent links or documents are a great feature. Am buying one for my husband to use at work!
