Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000

 

This keyboard's split and angled design makes it comfortable to use. Programmable hot keys allow for quick shortcuts and reduced mousing, but before you invest in this keyboard, make sure you have plenty of extra desk space.

Ergonomic design leads to wrist comfort; enhanced function keys for common shortcuts; five programmable favorites keys; dedicated back/forward keys for Web surfing.

Takes up a lot of desktop space; isn't compatible with PS/2 adapters.

Microsoft's ergonomic keyboard is comfortable to use and supplies a few useful extras.

Finding the perfect keyboard can be tricky, especially if you prefer the split “ergo” design to the traditional style—as the options for the former have become increasingly limited in recent years. Fortunately, we've long been able to count on...

We miss the Natural Keyboard Pro’s integrated USB hub. But because we haven’t been able to use the unpowered hub for USB thumb drives above 512MB, its absence on the Natural 4000 isn’t devastating.

Comfortable, easy to use, customizable, mac compatible

No USB hub, stiff keys, some say, noisy spacebar

Microsoft Natural Ergonomic 4000 Keyboard

 

For those who type for hours on end or whose jobs are in front of a computer you may know what happens after hours of strain using a normal keyboard. Serious long term damage can be caused by this.

A great keyboard for those stuck to one.

The Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 is a small but interesting step forward for Microsoft. While you may be familiar with Microsoft's Natural Keyboard Elite Pro which has been around for almost seven years, the Natural Ergonomic 4000 adds a...

Aside from my key switch and programmability complaints, this is a great keyboard. The additional parentheses keys above the numeric keypad are a huge help when doing calculations. The range and number of programmable additional keys is good, with...

This keyboard would be the perfect, all around productivity keyboard if it had professional quality mechanical key switches instead of the membrane key switches found in almost every consumer keyboard on the market. The effort put into designing and...

Microsoft has made some upgrades and made a decent keyboard here but the few flaws that we fond are to serious to leave unnoticed. I forgot to mention the software that is included, there you can set the zoom and what actions to do with all the extra...
