Consumer review (newegg.com)

If only they still made them...

 

These are great, I don't feel like I'm trying to squeeze my chest together to type (like every other keyboard). Hands where they feel comfy. Hard to use other keyboards now.

Switches aren't the greatest. The arrow keys annoyingly laid out (but not bin-worthy contrary to other reviews). Biggest con... they aren't made anymore. The new ones are not as nice as what was made 6 years ago... Lame

Non conforming keyboard ends up in trash

 

For some reason keyboard manufactures and laptop makers don't realize how important having a consistent/easy to hit cursor control keys are to a some who types a lot more then mouses.

It does have the natural split layout of the original MS Keyboard

The dedicated arrow/insert/page up/down home end keys are worthless. Don't buy this keyboard if you use those keys

Awesome keyboard !

 

Excellent keyboard as always. I could never go back to the old style, wrist-twister

The SPACE bar sometimes doesn't register. Got to hit it harder

A decade of this keyboard

 

The little rubber feet on these can fall off, so be mindful of that (and stand ready with some superglue).

I can't use any other keyboard. Seriously. I've been typing of MS Naturals for about a decade now, and I go through about one every 2-3 years (I break them out of overuse and abuse, nothing wrong with the actual product) ; They're dirt cheap and made...

They get a bit loud after a few months of use. I haven't been able to successfully take one apart and put it back together again... yet (but that's probably a personal defect and not one with the keyboard) ; Lastly, you will get addicted to this...

Love the design, however, do not spill liquid on them.

 

Interestingly enough, every time liquid was spilled on the keyboards, it was by the Numerical Keypad, and that Enter key would no longer work, as well as the Z, X and B keys. All other keys worked fine. This happened on 3 of the 5 keyboards.

Great keyboard for me as I am a programmer. Wife loves it. I like the fact you can buy these in a 5-pack as I have 4 kids

Do NOT spill anything on these keyboards. In 2 yrs, I have gone through 5 of these keyboards. My old Microsoft Natural keyboard took a lot of abuse over 9 yrs, I would take it apart, clean it, and then put it back together, and it would work. Not...

Works with Win 7 64 bit , Vista 32 bit

 

I bought the original in '98 and it still works great. When I got a Vista computer they said I needed a new keyboard so I bought one of the NewEgg black Naturals with all the bells and whistles and the Y key rarely works on first stroke, the M key is...

Doesn't make coffee.
