Microsoft Comfort Curve Keyboard 3000

 

The latest in Microsoft's line of ergonomic keyboards, the Comfort Curve Keyboard 3000 is also the most affordable model in the line, and features perhaps the nicest design. The curved, contoured shape of the keyboard is a dramatic departure from...

As its name suggests, the Microsoft Comfort Curve Keyboard 3000 has comfortable, ergonomically inspired contours, and it's also affordable.

The keys feel a bit mushy, and the glossy plastic surrounding the keys attracts fingerprints.

The agreeably practical Microsoft Comfort Curve Keyboard 3000 offers a unique, ergonomic design at a price that makes it easy to recommend to anyone in search of a basic wired keyboard.

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...

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.

"Microsoft "Comfort" Curve? Not at all a good buy."

 

For a product from Microsoft I was flabbergasted at the quality of product I had received, After about two minutes I hated it, it is very uncomfortable to use and made my wrist hurt really badly. For a Microsoft product the build quality was terrible,...

Well it is hard to say what the pros are, I guess one of the pros are that the keyboard is really responsive. And the glossy finish looks really nice.

The cons are:

Consumer review by:

"Best keyboard in this price range that I have ever used"

 

The curve is really nice; I never thought it would't make much of a difference but after using this keyboard it's something I really miss on ordinary flat keyboards. Also it has some simple and not too small media keys (play/pause, volume up, volume...

Nice curve, media keys and calculator key, low price.

The keys might feel cheap if you're used to more expensive keyboards but you can't really expect more from a keyboard in this price range. They're not terrible; better than most keyboards I ever got with a new computer.

"The worst keyboard I can remember I've had!"

 

Stay away from this keyboard. I've wasted my money and I have to find another. I'll go back to Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard which is the best I've ever tried. I'm really dissappointed with this keyboard - I never write reviews, but this one...

Honestly I don't see a pro. The curve is OK, but it's too weak to do a difference in my opinion.

The keys are "tuff" to press down and you don't have a clear sensation when the keystruck is "accepted". The ALT GR is too far to the right - really annoying for a Danish user that needs the key everytime I'm writing an @.

"Comfy, responsive and smart looking!!!"

 

DOES THIS KEYBOARD HELP TO REDUCT RSI?

The keyboard feels more comfortable and responsive than a traditional keyboard. The simple traditional layout makes it a easy changeover from a standard keyboard.

Wavy layout takes a little getting used too for touch typists.

Consumer review by:

Terrible. Almost like it's a joke keyboard.

 

Clearly the original reviewer had either (a) never used a keyboard before, or (b) used one so infrequently, he still checks for the location of every key before he presses it. Basically, the space-bar is out of alignment. Look at any other keyboard...
