Comfortable and great for Windows 8,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Microsoft Sculpt Comfort Keyboard - UK Layout (Accessory)
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.
+ 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.
- 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.
