Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic Desktop

 

The Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic Desktop is a trio of PC peripherals designed to reduce strain and improve your PC experience.

Comfortable ergonomic design. Stylish "manta ray" design. Three-piece set offers flexible functionality. Wireless design cuts clutter without monopolizing USB ports.

Keyboard has a pronounced learning curve. Lettering may wear off early.

The Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic Desktop combines some of the best ergonomic features with Windows 8 features that will power-up your regular PC use in addition to making it more comfortable. Throw in the simplicity of wireless and a distinctive, stylish...

Live la vida wireless with these slick Windows 8-optimized keyboards and mice

 

Ditch the tangled mess and go wireless with cool new peripherals that sport a dongle rather than a wire.

Mouse is comfortable to hold and use for long periods of time ; All devices work off one USB receiver ; Long battery life

Separate number pad is easy to misplace ; Typing ergonomically can involve a difficult learning curve

Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic Desktop review

 

Microsoft's Sculpt Ergonomic Desktop keyboard and mouse bundle eschew compactness for improved comfort and functionality. Not only do these peripherals look good, you'll feel better using them.

On the whole, both the mouse and keyboard work as advertised in Windows 7 and 8. All we have to do is turn on our computer, plug in the dongle into our computer’s USB port, power on the mouse, and voilà!

Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic Desktop Review: Your Hands Will Thank You

 

Microsoft's newest ergonomic keyboard - the latest in eight years - makes ergonomic keyboards look cool for the first time. But does it actually work better for your hands? Luckily for you, this reviewer has a bad wrist and is quite qualified to try it...

Design makes this the coolest ergonomic keyboard yet ; Scissor keys feel better than previous mushy keys ; Smaller shape makes for smaller footprint ; Gap in the middle is firm and doesn't flex

Function switch makes using function keys difficult ; Mouse never gets fully comfortable

Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic Desktop review

 

Microsoft's new desktop kit that's comfortable to use, and Windows 8-friendly

Solid build Batteries included One USB dongle for all Ergonomic design

Expensive Mouse isn't great Windows 8-centric features might be alienating

A solid, well-designed keyboard that can protect against RSI and is generally comfortable to use for long periods. It's just a shame about the mouse. The Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic Desktop is a good example of what Microsoft does best. It has a solid...

Ergonomic Desktop Keyboard

 

Very comfortable to use. Valued priced at Walmart as this writer shopped extensively on internet for the most competitive price, which was a considerable reduction from other offerings. With the separate numbers, takes some experience, but this is just...
