Single point of failure problem

The USB dongle/communicator is a single point of failure this of the device. It's very sensitive and if it doesn't work all parts will be garbage. It happened to me and I recommend avoid it or you should replace all parts and wasting your time and money. I called Microsoft and asked them to design a reliable dongle and add a spare USB dongle/communicator to respect customers time and money. I have not received any feedback. I recommend to avoid it.

No replacement for USB

This set is great, very comfortable etc. But be AWARE: if you loose the USB receiver, or if it gets damaged, there is NO replacement. In other words: if the warranty is over (1 year), there is no way of getting a replacement for it. If you still have the warranty, you can ship the whole set back to microsoft and they will replace it (the keyboard and the mouse). This is so absurd. There you go, microsoft being stupid over and over.

Soft, functional keys; ergonomic layout; easy to get used to

After going through four keyboard sets from various companies (including others by Microsoft), this by far wins the race. That is why I was impelled to write a review. Quick notes: - Keys are OK to write with long-sh nails - Erogonomic layout is good for wrists and the raised keyboard settings reduce pressure effectively - The split layout of the keyboard is suprisingly easy to get used to. Once trying the keyboard, I found I could get used to it right away with only small adjustments (i.e. i would normally hit the 'b' button with my right, as opposed to left, finger). Unlike other keyboards, this was easy to get used to. - The ergonomicness isn't overbearing. The mouse is awesome. It is natural on the wrists and big enough sot hat the hand isn't scrunching. I would buy this mouse alone as another mouse to use with my laptop alone, but a bit too expensive on its own for me... Feels great on the wrist. Overall, I would definitely recommend this to others.

Very pleased with purchase.

After getting used to the ergonomic placement of the keys I was very happy with typing speed and accuracy. I do find that the position is more comfortable after a long work session. The mouse is also excellent once you get used to the motion and the position of the buttons. I like the back button and the Windows buttons as well. I found that the bluetooth dongle needed to be placed in one of the front USB slots to prevent signal loss and lag. Other than that, perfect product.

A great upgrade to my Microsoft 4000 ergonomic keyboard!

I've been using the wired Microsoft 4000 keyboard every day at work for a few years now. Once you get used to the shape of these curved split keyboards, you really have a hard time going back to the regular flat ones! The Sculpt ergonomic wireless desktop set is a fantastic upgrade to my trusty 4000. It connects in a snap once you plug in the dongle. Would it be better as a Bluetooth combo? Sure would, but I knew I wasn't buying a Bluetooth setup here. That's the biggest negative I can say here, other than some may find it odd that the number pad is not connected to the keyboard itself, but is a standalone piece. I kind of like it. I can keep it out of the way when it's not needed that way. The keyboard itself has nice key travel, and a satisfying click on each keypress. The split spacebar also eliminates one of the biggest complaints most had with the 4000 keyboard - it didn't always press fully unless you hit the right spot. I haven't has a missed space on this one yet. They got it right this time. The function keys all serve dual-duty, and instead of a function lock key to flip between them, there is an actual hardware switch. The functions do all work flawlessly with Windows 10. If you use multiple desktops, the switch desktop hotkeys are great! The biggest thing I'm trying to get used to is the placement of the cursor keys and the delete/insert/home/end/pg up/pg down keys. Then there's that mouse. I have to say it, it's a bit of an odd duck. It feels kind of like cupping half a grapefruit in your hand, and some people are SURE to not like it. I'd guarantee that. I wasn't totally sold on it at first hold either. But after a few minutes, I could feel the difference in my wrist position. I think they were going for the 'vertical mouse' approach here, but it's just a few degrees short of where a vertical mouse should be. And there is nothing compact about it. But it DOES give a much better wrist position than a standard mouse, no doubt about that. It has the Windows menu button on top, something I've never really used on my other Microsoft mice, so that probably won't change now. It DOES include a back button on the left side below the menu button though, which would be handier if it wasn't in a slightly awkward spot to actually press. I've found most of the time that in trying to press it, I'll also (naturally) squeeze the outside of the mouse, invoking a right click. A better spot for it would have been to the outside edge, so you would press it by rolling your thumb out and pushing down into the surface the mouse is sitting on ... instead of pressing into a right click by effectively 'squeezing' the mouse. Oh, another nice little add-on is the keyboard riser, to lift the leading edge of the keyboard to improve your wrist position, depending on where your keyboard is located relative to your body. On my old 4000, it physically snaps into the bottom of the keyboard - on the Sculpt wireless it sticks in place using magnets. Nice touch.

Great keyboard, mouse a little odd

The keyboard in this set feels great, with easy to use buttons that don't have as much travel as a standard one. The separate numeric pad is fantastic, and can be placed to the left side of the keyboard where I prefer. The split configuration really forces you to use a better posture and be more deliberate with your keystrokes, but you will also unlearn some bad typing habits that might cause otherwise cause discomfort in the long run. Two issues though: 1) Like many keyboards, the function keys have media functions (volume, etc), but instead of a separate "FN" key, this has a manual switch that you turn on and off to make your keys act as either media keys or function keys. Odd, and annoying. Adjusting volume is something I do often and should not have to flip a switch to do so. 2) The wrist pad is not removeable and shows signs of wear early if you rest your palms on it while typing. The mouse is large...and high. The "Windows" button at the top is not programmable, and seems kind of pointless...I could just use the one on the keyboard with my left hand. The second button is a little hard to press. The biggest issue though is that you absolutely must be able to get your chair/height in the correct position to keep your elbows at 90 degrees. If you cannot, the high mouse will force your wrist at an angle that will be uncomfortable. Overall, it is a nice set and worth the sale price but you need to commit a couple weeks to trying it out to make sure it is right for you.

All in All, A very good combo

I love the keboard and number pad, the only issue I have is the mouse is too bulky.

Great ergonomic keyboard

Of all the keyboards I've seen online and tried in-store, this one was the winner. It's basic in the best way. Not too cluttered with unnecessary keys and not too bulky with the attached wrist-rest. The keys are low and quiet with just the right sensitivity. The mouse takes some getting used to, but once I got used to it, I really liked how it felt. I love the stowaway USB storage within the mouse. Makes it pretty hard to lose when you're not using it. Some very minor dislikes: - there's no caps lock indicator light - unless you can see what you type, you can't tell it's activated. - I have a love/hate relationship with the detached number pad. I like that it conserves desk space, but I hate that you can't use shortcut keys without it. - I was lucky enough to get this on sale. At regular price, the value is not that great, even for a 3-pc set. - I wished the wrist-rest was detachable. Once it gets really dirty and gross, there's no option to replace just that piece.

Comfortable

Overall, good keyboard and mouse. The mouse is by far the high point in this package in terms of comfort. The keyboard is nice except the key layout is too different from a standard keyboard making it difficult to find certain keys with your fingers. Detachable key pad is good and bad. Not a bad price on sale. Wouldn't buy this one at full price. The thumb position on the mouse needs one more button to quickly switch between windows, like Logitech mouse.

Timelessly Ingenious Product by Microsoft

The Ergo set by Microsoft has been a favourite of mine since inception. At a base level its key focus is one thing, keep the user's hand level at all times. Now they come through on the same front with their Ergo mouse. Some say it takes getting used to but I would say the learning curve is negligible, especially if you read the instructions and keep the "hand level" concept in mind. I'm no Microsoft fanboy. I'm a Linux user through-and-through; been running Ubuntu for basic desktop for nearly a decade. And I have to tell you that this keyboard set works like a dream in Ubuntu Linux. The thing of it all is, I take advantage of Microsoft products when I can. Same goes with anything that adds value to my daily life. Having a truly ergonomic keyboard and mouse combo is actually a core issue in my life, and this is the only set out there (maybe there's some special order stuff out there of no real value to the common user), but this set has been around since the 90s. These guys know what they're doing; in fact, they do it quite well. Another common thread is the worry over having to use a toggle button when switching from Function Key focus to Media Key focus. Some of the people that make this complaint claim they favour Function Key focus. As a function key user I would have to disagree with this, as typically the issue is that the media keys are the default. I like being able to set it to the way I want, sort of like a CAPS Lock Key. That's my two cents, take it or leave it.

A great ergonomic set!

I love the comfort of the mouse. They keyboard takes a bit to get used to but once you get the hang of it you can feel the difference it makes on your hands and wrists. I love the convenience of the external number pad. A great buy overall.

very comfortable

Th keyboard layout is amazing. very comfortable, Keys are very sensitive, and easy to use and I enjoy using it. I guess my emails are longer ever since I bought this keyboard. the soft pad in front of keyboard is very good, but not sure how long it will last. The main disadvantage of a keyboard like this is that t be a trueley ergonomic mouse should be at higher level than the keyboard; so, you need to be a keyboard tray as well.

Ergonomic MS Sculpt keyboard

Recently replaced my previously well used MS Ergonomic 4000, which I have used for more than a decade (several of them), as it was too big to fit on keyboard trays. Love this smaller keyboard. Like the separate calculator feature. Only complaint is that it comes with the ergonomic mouse, which I already have and don't use because it's too big for my hand, so now I have 2 that I don't use. This keyboard is comfortable, has good key response and works well for me. I would certainly recommend it for anyone who is still using the original flat keyboards which will eventually give you wrist, arm, shoulder, or neck problems of some sort.

Different

Detached number pad a bit odd moving it all the time. The keyboard comfortable after getting used to it. I bought it on sale and it was a deal. Has worked fine since hooking it up.

Satisfied customer!

i bought this desktop for its ergonomic features as well as its aesthetic appeal. I've been using it for a few weeks now and I'm pretty happy with the comfort it provides. The best thing was the ease of installation - just plug in the USB, turn on the switch (batteries already included of course) and you're set. So far, so good! Worth every penny.

Weird keyboard but I love it!

I started working a desk job 2 months ago and I am on the computer 100% of the day. Noticed that by the end of the day my wrists hurt from improper positioning and a lack of wrist support. This keyboard feels great, your hands just fall into place naturally and the wrist support is comfortable. It has been odd getting used to typing on it, a lot of it was natural but I also used to cheat with my tying and I find that I have to type a lot more "proper" on this one, not a bad thing just something to get used to. I didn't think that I was going to like the oddly shaped mouse but now that I have it I actually quite enjoy it. The only thing that I would actually say can frustrate me is the detached num pad. I thought I was going to love it, and in a lot of ways I do. The only thing is that I find myself moving it a lot to put it out of my way and back into a place when I want to use it. Not something that you have to be concerned about with a regular keyboard. Altogether I love and and am really happy with my purchase, even at the price point it is at! (BTW, the calculator button is the best feature ever to have on the num pad!)

Great keyboard...if it worked!!

I've now returned this keyboard and replaced it with a new one to only have the same issues in both keyboards. The number keys on the separate keypad don't work 100% of the time. Being a bookkeeper...this is VERY frustrating!! I LOVE the keyboard otherwise...but a little frustrated with Best Buy that I can't return it for a refund to repurchase the mouse part due to the fact that it's faulty!!

Highly recommended!

You will not pay attention on keying, rather all you would be thinking is the article that you working on. Very comfortable, without notice, 1000 words completed......

Love it!

This is a great keyboard and mouse. I have tennis elbow and didn't want to make it worse with a regular mouse and keyboard. Keyboard is definately different and takes a little getting used to but it doesn't take very long. Same with the mouse: different feel but got used to it quickly. If they didn't feel different, there wouldn't be much point in buying them!

Not a bad keyboard, but some bad design mistakes.

THE GOOD - The separate numeric keypad. The ergonomic feel of all the items. THE BAD - The keys are too soft making it easy to accidentally press extra keys while resting your fingers on the keys. The alignment of the 3rd and 4th row of keys for the right hand makes touch typing accurately difficult. They use a switch for the function/feature keys. They should have used a shift-like button for the features. THE UGLY - The 6 key is above the wrong hand for touch typing. For an average hunt and peck user, this keyboard is too expensive. For a professional touch typist, the alignment of the keys make it a bad investment. This keyboard was designed by engineers without consulting anyone who actually types for a living.

Great Keyboard

This keyboard works great. I bought it as a replacement for Microsoft's Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 which I like but had a few complaints. This keyboard fixes most of those complaints. The mouse took a bit to get used to but I quickly learned to like the shape all except the back button on the side is a little hard to use compared to my former Wireless laser mouse 6000. The only complaint is that the price is a little high but overall I'm happy with the purchase and would recommend it for a ergonomic set.
