my standard kb


I have used this model for going on 10 years. I ordered and bought a new one from newegg about 1 yr ago. The best keyboard for long term typing. Also the best keyboard for big sausage fingered relatives.

big, comfy, easy on the ole carple tunnel, less wrist pain after long typing sessions

big: not gonna fit in a student sized keyboard tray. comes in white...and ...white

I echo Bill in Kansas's comments


I own 3 of these keyboards and I plan on purchasing more as soon as I can. They are, hands down, without doubt, the best keyboard ever made. Mine has survived for at least 8 years and two tours to Iraq. Sand, hair, dust...this thing just keeps going....

Not really a con, but all of the ones I own are PS/2 connectors. They come with a PS/2 to USB adapter, so it's no big deal...but a pure USB keyboard would be nice so I don't have to carry the adapter when I use this with my laptop (yes...I love it so...

I reviewed the original Natural when it came out years back. I wish the new one had the option to raise the front of the keyboard instead of the back, like the original. The new one has excellent tactile feedback like the original but was missing in...

I purchased this Microsoft keyboard to replace my old Microsoft Natural that I have been using since I had Windows 95! Both of my wrists have been broken in the past (work and motorcycles) and are very much limited in range of motion. This style of...

This one is done right


I have had a love-hate relationship with MS products over the years, but this is one they really got right. The one I bought here was the second one, a replacement for one I finally wore out after years of hard use. Once you get used to not having to...

Top Notch


You can find this thing all over for free or a nominal price as a used item... and they're virtually indestructible so no worries! If I couldn't I would gladly pay full retail but lets face it, Bill doesn't need the money! New Egg Rocks!!!

I've used this keyboard since it first came out and it has never let me down. I have three of them and wouldn't trade any of them for any other keyboard. I've tried just about any keyboard you can imagine (worked in a repair shop) including some very...

Price: Yes its worth it ; But come on! This thing has been around for over a decade

Memphis warehouse problems


Shipping from Newegg's Memphis warehouse continues to be a disaster. They throw the items into the bottom of the box and then packaging materials on top. The last keyboard I ordered, I had to fix the feet because they were broken off due to the...

I have been selling these ergonomic keyboards for years - they are the best on the market
