About Microsoft

With its modern, ergonomic design, Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic Keyboard sets the standard for support and comfort. It keeps your hands and arms in a relaxed position as you work, helping you feel refreshed after a day at your desk without soreness or injury. This Keyboard is built on advanced ergonomic principles, with a split keyboard layout that keeps wrists and forearms in a relaxed position and a cushioned palm rest that protects against inflammation and repetitive stress injuries. The domed keyboard shape works to reduce and correct excessive wrist pronation that can cause pain and limited mobility.

The natural arc layout follows the curve of your fingertips for a more natural way of typing. The reverse-tilt design positions the keyboard at the correct angle to give you a neutral wrist position.

  • Split keyset design: Split keyset design helps to position wrists and forearms in a natural, relaxed position
  • Natural Arc: Natural Arc key layout mimics the curved shape of the finger tips
  • Domed keyboard design: Domed keyboard design positions wrists at a natural, relaxed angle
  • Separate Number Pad: Separate number pad provides greater flexibility for workspace setup
  • Reverse tilt: Reverse tilt angles the keyboard to promote a straight neutral wrist position

Finally, Microsoft gets it right!

By

I do medical transcription and so a KB is my lifeline. With the mileage I put on a KB, they usually only last about 3 years. I have been a diehard MS Natural Wireless Ergonomic 7000 user for the past several years and have gone through 3 of them. Now #3 is dieing and so I decided to try the new Sculpt Ergonomic. I am in love with this KB! The mechanical keys are just what I've been waiting for. I have actually increased my typing speed and finger/hand fatigue is drastically reduced. The KB is extremely light and has a very small footprint w/o the number pad (cudos to MS for detaching it). The keys seem smaller and closer together and I was concerned about that, but once I started using it, I'm having no problem. The F keys are very tiny and that is the only drawback I can see, as I use them often for shortcuts and macros. I do have to look to find which F key I want. Hopefully with time, I will get the "feel" for them. The arrow keys, home, end, delete, page up and down are in different locations, but easily accessible and so just a learning curve there. The reverse tilt is not as drastic as the 7000, but no problem there either. The wrist rest is comfortable. The KB seems well built and sturdy. The prop for reverse angle attaches magnetically. And FINALLY, the space bar is now quick and responsive! I can not say enough about the touch of this KB! I highly recommend to anyone who is a 7000 or 4000 user. You will be pleasantly surprised! Now let's hope it is a durable product.

A Few Shortcomings

By

I've used the 1st generation MS Natural Keyboard, the Natural Elite, and the Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 before switching to this Sculpt Ergonomic Keyboard. I'm a touch typist. First, the goods: 1. The low-profile keys feel alright -- way better than the keys on my HP EliteBook 8540p. I don't miss the taller, more clicky keys of the Ergo KB 4000. And I like the Sculpt's quieter keys. 2. This "Business" edition KB package (ie. comes without a mouse) has a small USB transmitter that barely sticks out of the USB port. It is about the same size as the Logitech universal transmitter. This is much better than the Sculpt KB + mouse package that comes with a larger transmitter that sticks out half an inch from the USB port. 3. Built very well and looks to be durable. Battery cover underneath the keyboard is magnetic. 4. The palm support pad feels very comfy. Now the shortcommings: 1. Microsoft has rearraged the keys again and this takes a lot of getting-used-to! They should have at least separated out the arrow keys a bit. Or make the Enter key convex. Or add some indents (like on the F and J keys) so I can feel my way around the Home/End/Insert/Delete/Enter/arrow keys. Right now I've to look to find the keys. 2. There's no Caps/Num/Scroll lock indicator lights anywhere! 3. The Function keys (F1-F12) and the Escape key, etc (all buttons on the top row) are not the same as the rest of the keys -- they're much harder to press down. And they're so small I've to look to find the right one to press. 4. The number pad uses a coin battery. 5. I wish they had made this more like a laptop keyboard, with the Num Lock activating a number-entering mode that e.g. lets me use the J, K, L, U, I keys to enter 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, etc, so that I can do away with the number pad more often. Right now turning Num Lock off turns the number pad into arrow keys. Despite of the shortcomings, I still prefer this to the Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000.
