    A very nice keyboard, that doesn't take up too much room on my desk. The keys have a nice feel to them. The only downside for me is that the arrow keys are a little too close to the number keys and sometimes I hit zero instead of the move cursor right key.

    You have the option with the split space bar to change the right hand side of the bar to a backspace key. The problem here is that if like me you're right handed, you will tend to have your right thumb resting on the bar and that every time you hit it thinking you're hitting the space key you are actually hitting the delete key. For me I found it very unnatural to use my left thumb for space so I ended up turning this function off and reverting the right hand side back to a space bar. Otherwise a good product.

    I wanted a slightly more comfortable keyboard for my desktop, this one has an ergonomic design with a cushioned pad so I thought I'd give it a try.

    Pros:
    + The cushioned pad is just soft enough, and with the legs up puts your wrists in a very comfortable position. This is also removable if you prefer not to use one.
    + There are loads of Windows 8 specific buttons that are very useful, such as switch app and settings. But there is the option to use these buttons as your standard function buttons such as f5 for refresh.
    + The buttons have a nice feel to them, and don't take long to get used to.
    + The split spacebar will be useful, when I get used to it!
    + The keyboard is UK layout, unlike that in the picture. Therefore you get a big enter button, not the little one shown.

    Cons:
    - There are no visual indicators for caps/num/scroll lock.
    - The wireless USB receiver is quite large.

    I would definitely recommend this keyboard, but it would be easily made better by a smaller USB receiver and lights for the lock buttons.

    Bought this keyboard to replace a very old Logitech Wave keyboard that was finally becoming too difficult to use day-to-day. I am using this as a software developer, so it get's a lot of use (and abuse) over the course of a day. Please bear this in mind as the review might be a bit programmer-centric in places.

    The keyboard is (as described) wireless, so it comes with a dongle and a set of batteries. It's a little disappointing that the dongle is so large though (the dongle is about USB-stick sized) when compared to the fairly common micro-dongle that barely sticks out from your USB port. This will probably be an issue for people that want portability.

    Surprisingly the included batteries were Duracell, so I expect that they'll last quite a long time. I haven't experienced (as far as I can tell) and issues with the wireless so far. To "turn on" the keyboard, simply pull out the blue tag on the back of the keyboard. Once you've done this, and Windows has finished installing the drivers, the keyboard will be usable. There's no need to turn the keyboard off as it does not use any power when a key is not pressed. One minor annoyance I find with this "always on" design is that aside from the battery warning light, there are no indicator lights on the keyboard at all. This means that you cannot tell if num lock or caps lock is enabled.

    Contrary to the images on the product page, the keyboard itself is an English (Great Britain) layout. This means you get a double-height enter/return key, and a backslash key in the lower left. Shift + 3 produces a £ symbol, rather than a #.

    The keyboard is mostly the standard EN-GB layout.

    Microsoft ergonomic keyboard

    What is it
    This is a keyboard made to make touch typing easier and give support to the hands and wrists to prevent repetitive strain injuries. It is a wireless keyboard and comes with receiver unit and fitted batteries.
    You need to pull out a small blue tab from underneath to activate the pre-installed batteries.

    Layout
    The layout is a standard UK qwerty type with extra function keys that can be switched on and off. There are several additions for Windows 8 users on the function keys (I am using Windows 7 so cannot comment on the usefulness of these)

    Set up
    I plugged in the USB receiver unit and the keyboard was found and set up correctly with no intervention from me.

    In use
    I do find it rests my hands more and I can type slightly faster than with my old Microsoft keyboard. It is definitely more comfortable to use for long typing sessions.
    I feel the keyboard is let down by the dead feel of the keys, there is no feedback and this makes it easy to make mistakes. This is a pity but the tactile feel of the keyboard feels no better than the cheap one it has replaced.

    Over all
    A nice keyboard spoilt by a lack of tactile feedback.

    I've always had Microsoft keyboards as I've found them to be very good quality and easy to use.
    Bought this one as I was specifically looking for a quieter keyboard that my current Microsoft one - as I use it for work and am often on phone calls where people can hear me typing. I tried it in a shop and it seemed quiet - then bought it on Amazon - and very happy with it. It's really quite quiet - and it has a really nice feel to it.
    The curve is gentle enough to be nice to use - but not like some ergonomic ones where you need to learn to type again. It took a few days to get used to - but I'm fine with it now. It's got a nice natural rise so it feels comfortable to use. There's an interesting option to tilt the keyboard back - ie. raise the front - which makes far more sense for your wrists than having the back higher - but didn't seem to suit me too well - and it was already comfortable when flat so I'm using it like that - but might be a good option for some people.
    It has an odd feature where the space bar is split - and you can use one half as a backspace - which seems like an odd thing to do anyway - and I tried it for a bit I just couldn't get used to it after years of using the normal backspace key - but luckily you can disable that and just use the whole space bar as.....a space!
    A couple of minor niggles which stop me giving it 5 stars.
    The first is that the right cursor key is too close to the number pad - and there's no difference in touch (eg. no raised surface on one of the keys) - so when you're not looking - I find myself feeling around for where the cursor key is - or pressing the '0' key by mistake.
    The second is probably common to a lot of keyboards - where the Fn keys - F4, F5 etc - are combined with 'special' keys - such as the volume keys etc.
