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.

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...

awful replacement

 

WHY did they discontinue the comfort curve 2000?

None

My comfort curve 2000 broke, and I thought this would be a good replacement, the HUGE curve is neither comfortable nor helpful. Super awful, not sure I want to spend the time or money to return this poorly designed keyboard

Some keys barely work after 2 years

 

Comfortable design

Several of the keys no longer function properly after only 2 years of gentle use. The 1 and 2 keys in particular require a very firm press to work, basically the keyboard is nearly useless now since it is such an annoyance

Nothing but generic support from Microsoft

 

It works

Windows only recognizes it as a generic USB keyboard. There are no MS drivers for it. There is no software customization possible for it. If you go to the MS website you will find a "mouse & Keyboard Center" download associated with it but all that...

s/ergonomic/curved/g

 

Yet again I fell for the 'shiny' visual appeal of a MS product only to find out that the engineering department didn't seem to complete their course work. Curved doth not equate to ergonomical design, unless one articulates the curvature and layout in...

Shiny. Calculator and media function keys are a nice addition. Smooth and precise key action

Evidently the engineers for this keyboard decided that a nice looking curve and visual appear was more important than functional layout. The 'ergonomic' curve is counter to the key spacing and alignment instead of reinforced by it. Thus, your hand has...
