Microsoft Sculpt Comfort Keyboard Review

 

Along with Windows 8 , Windows RT , and Windows Phone 8 , Microsoft has released a handful of new keyboards, trying to cover the wide range of people who need a physical keyboard regardless of it they're working on desktop or on a tablet. Of all of...

Even though I’ve never been a big fan of ergonomic keyboards, I have to say that the Sculpt Comfort Keyboard impressed. It isn’t the most feature-rich keyboard around, but Microsoft has done some interesting things with it. Splitting the space bar in...

Microsoft Sculpt Comfort Keyboard

 

The Microsoft Sculpt Comfort Keyboard is a solid choice for anyone looking for a keyboard with Windows 8 hotkeys or who'd benefit from a dual-function spacebar.

Unique dual-function spacebar. Detachable padded wrist rest. Hotkeys and charm keys optimized for Windows 8.

Keys aren't backlit. Requires a dongle. Batteries aren't rechargeable. Directional arrows don't scroll through the Windows 8 tiled interface.

Microsoft Sculpt Comfort Keyboard review

 

Having launched a pair of Windows 8 tablet-focused input devices , Microsoft has now turned its attention to full-size peripherals. The Sculpt Comfort Keyboard comes equipped with Microsoft's new array of Windows 8-specific buttons and a new take on...

An alternative take on the spacebar, a removable wrist rest, and Windows 8-specific hot keys give the Microsoft Sculpt Comfort Keyboard a robust set of features for its price.

Mushy typing and the oversize spacebar make the Sculpt Comfort Keyboard feel imprecise and cumbersome.

It's always worth reexamining technological features we take for granted, but even if you like Microsoft's new approach to the spacebar, the Sculpt Comfort Keyboard needs some streamlining before it merits a recommendation.

Microsoft Sculpt Comfort Keyboard Review and Ratings

 

The overall design of the Sculpt Comfort Keyboard has appeal, but we weren't fans of the mushy keyfeel. Still, it's a reasonable step up from a basic keyboard—especially if what you're after is a set of Windows 8-specific shortcut keys.

Split-spacebar design makes backspace more accessible ; Comfortable layout ; Sturdy wrist rest

Keys felt mushy and too deep ; No key backlighting ; Function and shortcut keys are small, half-height

While we weren't fans of Microsoft's choice of a thumb-length USB dongle, we appreciated the keyboard's no-hassle setup: Just plug in the receiver, and the keyboard was ready to use. That level of convenience was noticeably superior to the...

Microsoft Sculpt Comfort Review

 

The Microsoft Sculpt Comfort is among the best Bluetooth mice available. The BlueTrack technology scored high marks on every surface we tested on, including glass. It has five functions with touch-sensitive gestures optimized for Windows 8, though it...

It's extremely accurate on every surface we tested, including glass.

The mouse doesn't have an ambidextrous design.

The Microsoft Sculpt Touch is one of the best Bluetooth mice because it's extremely accurate on any surface, very portable and can accommodate every grip type.
