Microsoft Comfort Curve Keyboard 3000 Review

Cheap Ergonomics?

Microsoft has been making its own keyboards for many years.  They have pioneered a lot of good accessible and ergonomic keyboards, but also have come up with some questionable designs, even when considering ergonomics.

We are looking at the Microsoft Comfort Curve 3000 keyboard, which is apparently the bigger (yet somehow smaller) brother of the Comfort Curve 2000 keyboard.

    Been using this keyboard instead of the laptop crap all are stealing from the mac and putting in their portables. I mean by that the spaced out squared keyed ones. So in my book, as I am a long time user of MS keyb and mice, since the first Natural they made, I can tell you that the reviewer neither used extensively nor has an idea what he is talking about.
    The device is awesome, and none of the flaws you mentioned are actually there, so I find this review a rather subjective to say the least. I also own the first model M keybs and use them on my old machines, so for a start I do know what a good keyb feels like, and even though this MS one is cheap, it is still a good product unlike their line of mice, which I will let you spit on at your own pleasure. However natural keybs made by MS are bloody awesome, and so far they are unrivaled in the experience and downgraded rsi.

      Are you seriously saying a $20 keyboard is the best Microsoft keyboard ever? I think it is you, sir, that has no clue what he is talking about. Go look at Amazon or any place that sells this. User reviews all agree that this keyboard is just o.k. at best.

      None of the flaws are there? Let's see….
      Membrane keys? Check.
      Silk-screened letters? Check.
      Lack of adjustments? Check.
      Crowded keys? Check.

      The only thing that is subjective is the comfort level. I, too have used all (and I mean ALL) of the Microsoft keyboards and have been typing for over 20 years. So I do have some experience when it comes to keyboards.
