Microsoft Comfort Curve 3000

 

Regardless of what type of user you may be, comfort is a concern we all share. It can help productivity, responsiveness, and even play a major role in the longevity and health of our body. Microsoft is no stranger to pioneering innovative designs for...

I did find it easier to sit for extended typing sessions with the Comfort Curve 3000 than a standard keyboard. The 'Curve' in the 3000 is literally and arch in the base that forces the hands to be propped into a natural rise, or curve, while situated...

Microsoft Comfort Keyboard 3000

 

The Microsoft Comfort Curve Keyboard 3000 is a nice keyboard with great feel and is listed at a great price for a standard feature keyboard. This keyboard is slim with a slight rise in the center and is rounded just enough to feel...

Microsoft has developed a very nice comfort fit keyboard in the Comfort Curve Keyboard 3000. Very natural to the touch allows effortless keystrokes, while the price of $19.95 does not leave a user empty in the wallet.

Microsoft Comfort Curve Keyboard 3000 Keyboard Review

 

Today I am checking out the new Microsoft Comfort Curve Keyboard 3000. This wired keyboard might be perfect for the user that needs a slightly more ergonomic keyboard before spending big money on a truly ergonomic offering. Read on for all for the...

Cheap ; Ergonomic design

Very thick

The Microsoft Comfort Curve Keyboard 3000 isn't ideal for me and my typing style, but you may like this cheap ergonomic offering.

My second one

 

I would absolutely recommend this keyboard. I have carpel tunnel in both wrists and the pain was becoming unbearable. I switched to this keyboard at work and have had little to no issues with my carpel tunnel since. I just purchased a second keyboard...

Great comfortable keyboard

 

-Under heavy stress I suspect the keys may wear off, space bar already has a smooth polish in places. -If your are looking for a ergonomic keyboard but don't want to go to a split style, this might be a decent alternative.

-Enjoy the quiet keys -Unique curve for good ergonmics

-None so far

The Best Keyboard Ever!

 

Sometimes when I am on out another office mate will use my computer so she can be closer to a friend....I hated that, especially when she messes with my settings. I always complained but mgmt never did anything. She cannot get used to the new keyboard...

This was bought to use at work as I have R.A. in my hands and wrists. The pain in my hands after a long day typing was excruciating to the point I was having trouble driving home. I am so glad this was a cost effective and amicable solution. The gentle...

it's a downgrade to past comfort curves

 

I cannot continue using this keyboard and will be searching for an alternative brand. I've always preferred Microsoft ergonomic keyboards as they do have a more natural hand position to other "wave" keyboards.

Ergonomic Soft and quiet keys

Terrible layout making keys more compressed together. Arrow keys are right next to Ctrl key and number pad. The worst is expanding the delete button and moving the Insert key to the top. I use Ctrl+Insert and Shift+Insert so often my fingers are...
