"Great Keyboard - Dreadful Mouse"4.5 starson by mijcar
Pros: Keyboard is truly comfortable and enhances touch-typing. Feel and action of the keys are just right. The placement due to the curvature reduces the amount of small adjustments usually required of touch typists, so work is more accurate and less tiring.
Cons: Function keys and escape keys are too small and the software reassignment of them is both pointless and frustrating. The oversize board due to the palm-rest is unnecessary. I have never found palm-rests helpful and they more often than not simply get in
Summary: This is a terrific keyboard. The clunkiness due to its oversize and the pointless mouse only shows that MS is not aware of what a great product they would have otherwise. None of the negatives are enough to keep the keyboard design and behavior from really shining through. This is the best ergonomically designed fundamental layout I have seen yet!
