It's been a solid ergonomic keyboard. One of the few available on the market. One notable drawback is that F-Lock key which disables the Function keys (F-1 - F-12). When you wonder why, for example, context sensitive help did not come up after pressing F-1, check the status of this F-Lock key (reported by a little green light at the front of the keyboard). The price could be reduced by eliminating the 17 extra buttons along the top and down the middle of the keyboard. Really, who uses these buttons? At least the buttons are designed to be out-of-the-way. I recommend it over the keyboard that comes with HP computers, where the silly buttons line the keyboard and are too easy to hit accidentially.

The space bar is the reason I am returning this. This space bar does not work very well unless you hit it at the very bottom directly in the center. It also does not have a quick repeat because it is so hard to hit. I have to always back space because when I hit spacebar twice after period, it only enters once. For such a large space bar key, it is odd it is just connected underneath by 1 spot at the middle bottom of the spacebar key (hence the reason the right and left are hard to push). Otherwise, I would give this board a 5 stars, but because of the spacebar I can only give it a 2. Think of how many spaces you type a day and is it worth it to keep going back to re-hit it at a diferent spot over and over. Otherwise a great board, and if the spacebar was was fixed I would buy 2 or 3 of them as backups.

Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard

Comments about Microsoft Natural® Ergonomic Keyboard 4000:

This is an excellent and cost effective hard wired keyboard. I am not a user of wireless keyboards or other devices and it can be difficult to find a quality, inexpensive USB keyboard. This one fits the bill perfectly. It is very well designed for comfort during use. I am not a fast typer and would consider myself at a middle skill level. The keys are placed far apart for my older arthritic fingers to use without hitting adjacent keys. Some of the modern compact keyboards are difficult for me to use because the keys are to close together. The ergonomic design also keeps me from developing cramping when writing long essays and articles. It has all the functionality I require. The rest pad is also very comfortable during long writing sessions. Finally, the wide design which I can accommodate nicely on my work desk again provides my older slower typing style plenty of room. My only complaint is that there is only one ctrl key for keystroke commands that I like to use on the left side of the keyboard. I once had a board that had one on either side.

Good keyboard

By LT

from Houston, TX

This customer has reached Intern level on the Staples.com Leaderboard

Comments about Microsoft Natural® Ergonomic Keyboard 4000:

First one worked well until a water spill rendered the backspace key unworkable.

PROS:
This keyboard makes my hands and wrists much more comfortable than a traditional keyboard - which was the initial reason for purchase.

It has a number of added features that some might use like the zoom and browser buttons.

CONS:
Takes some time to 'break in.'

Keys are not quiet, space bar is loud.

Both units I've used show wear early in product life; especially the E, S and D keys. In fact, the E key wore of the second one much faster than the first.

Great, reliable replacement for wireless

By Al

Comments about Microsoft Natural® Ergonomic Keyboard 4000:

Read and compared this unit with others before purchasing as a replacement for a similar, wireless unit from another leading manufacturer. While the old unit was nicely laid out and comfortable to use, after going beyond its warranty, the keyboard developed a nasty and well-documented series of keystroke issues. After struggling, changing batteries, etc., I decided to return to the reliable, though tethered realm of a wired keyboard and saw the MS Natural Ergonomic 4000 keyboard.

This Microsoft keyboard certainlly is not a brand new model, but it has proven itself. It has all the needed features, it is comfortable with the built-in wrist pad, and best of all - it works without the previously mentioned problems. I am a hunt and peck typist, so watching my keystrokes and having the display show an accurate result are critical. This unit fills the bill, though the fairly widely split keyboard does take some getting used to if you have not had one like this before. I must say, though, that I have not encountered any problem with the space bar (some reviews said it can be stiff/stick/not respond when tapped anywhere but in the middle).

Initial set up was easily accomplished on my Windows 7 system, a welcome departure from some of the "plug and pray" installations I have had to endure over the years. Once set up, everything has been working as advertised, though I have not yet made use of the programmable keys. A nice feature is the zoom key in the middle of the keyboard, as it makes it quick/easy to relieve the strain of fine print on an aging pair of eyes. The numeric keypad section is comfortable and well-placed, too. Admittedly, I still have some learning ahead of me for the many features of this keyboard, but so far, all is going well.

Finally, on pricing and availability, a keyboard is something I think should be touched and "tried on for size," as layout and comfort certainly should be more important than good looks or price alone. While one can window shop and then buy online, there is no need to do that when Staples offers its price match guarantee - just ask for it and have the other source/price available. Also, when looking on the Staples site, I was disappointed to find this item sold out; however when I went into a local Staples store, I found several of these keyboards still on the shelf (you also can call ahead to verify availability). Instant gratification, problems solved, and a competitive price. What more could you ask for?

This keyboard is fine, except for the fact that there are many options and customizable features with almost no documentation.
