From the manufacturer
Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic Keyboard and Numeric Pad
Advanced ergonomic design
Sculpt Ergonomic Desktop is built on advanced ergonomic principles, with a split keyboard layout that keeps wrists and forearms in a relaxed position, and a cushioned palm rest to provide wrist support. The domed keyboard shape works to reduce and correct wrist pronation that can cause pain and limited mobility.
True comfort for lasting productivity
Sculpt Ergonomic Desktop is designed for productivity, with an eye on ergonomic excellence. By providing a relaxed, comfortable computing experience, it enables you to work without the stress, strain, and discomfort of other keyboards and mice you may have used in the past.
It’s all in the angles
The natural arc keyboard layout follows the curve of your fingertips for a more natural way of typing. Reverse tilt design positions the keyboard at the correct angle to give you a straight, neutral wrist position. Additionally, the shape of the mouse is designed for maximum wrist comfort. Plus its Windows button provides one-touch access to the Windows Start Menu.

This set works off of just one USB dongle for both items, which are paired to this one USB dongle (found in the base of the mouse) at the factory. If you purchase a separate mouse, or the keyboard, *alone*; they'll need a separate dongle (and free USB port) for each. This set only requires one USB port for *both* the mouse & keyboard together.
MOUSE: This right-handed mouse was purchased as an upgrade from my previous wired Microsoft Comfort mouse which had buttons that were starting to fail. I've never used an 'ergonomic' type mouse before and was somewhat concerned that I might have to re-adjust my hand movement to use such a design.
This is not a problem at all! It fits the hand so well that within seconds of use I was upset I hadn't always had such a mouse! This is SUCH a good mouse.
The "BlueTrack" technology tracks brilliantly on any surface (except for mirror finished glass & metal). It's reported to track more surfaces than a high-end laser mouse.
I really like the size and weight. I don't like 'mobile' sized mice for daily work. So this is a pleasure to use. It has a great weight to it, probably due to the two AA batteries that it runs off. It weighs in at around 5.47 oz (155 g). Regarding battery life; remember to turn off the mouse at the end of use to preserve battery life. If you do that, Microsoft estimate many months of use per set of batteries.
Holding this mouse keeps your hand tilted to the right, in a comfortable position. It feels much better to use than a regular mouse, where your hand lies flat over the top of the unit. With this mouse, your right hand rests naturally on it's right side, as you would if you put your hand on a desk in a relaxed way.
It's got 5 buttons (7 if you count all the wheel's movements) that are all mappable to whatever you want them to do using the Microsoft Mouse & Keyboard Centre v2.8 software. I've made the inside thumb button a "Double Click" and it's great. You can change the blue Windows logo button to whatever you want, but by default it's set to open the Start Menu and I've found it really useful. The scroll wheel has 4-way scrolling that enables up, down, left, and right navigation and presses in as well. All these movements are mappable to whatever you want in the software.
Connectivity is a breeze. Just plug the little 2.4 GHz dongle into a USB 2 port and it's instantly recognised in Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10, Windows 10 Phone, Macintosh Mac OS X v10.7-10 and Android 3.2-5.0. I was surprised as to how easy it all was. The range for the transceiver is around 10' (3 meters) so that's plenty.
It glides around on it's clever magnetically held base brilliantly, and is an instant hit with everyone that sees it. They all want one in the office!
KEYBOARD: I waited quite a while to write about this, as it took time to get used to this keyboard, as I've never used a split keyboard before. The very first impression is deeply affected by whether you use the magnetically attached tilt base or not. This option is more ergonomic, but as a newcomer to split keyboards, who doesn't touch type, I found it slowed my typing down so much that I couldn't use it and keep the speed I'm used to. (I type really fast on regular flat, clacky keyboards!) I decided to remove the stand after a three weeks and see how that went. There was an instant improvement in typing speed and spelling/input accuracy. However, I'm still slower on a split keyboard than a regular keyboard.
In use the keyboard is perfectly functional. I've not noticed any 'mistakes' in wireless transmission as reported by some reviewers. I do notice that I often 'miss' the split space-bar and hit the huge "Alt" button instead. It's also taking me quite some time to get used to the position of the Delete button, where I hit the Return or Insert buttons instead.
Something to get used to is that the Function "F-buttons" are shared with the media buttons via a switch. Shift the switch right and all the F-buttons are normal. Shift the switch left, and they all function as mappable media keys, not all of which work on Windows 10 through the Microsoft Mouse & Keyboard Centre v2.8 software. I found the "Snap windows right and left" buttons didn't work for me. Because of this, I leave the switch in the regular F-button mode and don't use the media keys much.
I'm puzzled over the decision to separate the numeric number pad. I think it would have been better to incorporate it into the keyboard, as I stow it away on my desk to save space I end up using it less because of it. This separate pad runs off a large CR2430 Lithium button cell, while the keyboard runs off of a pair of AAA batteries, that - unlike the mouse - can't be turned off. However, comments & reviews say they last a long time.
This set comes with a limited 3 year warranty for peace of mind. I really can't recommend this mouse highly enough for right-handed desktop or laptop use. Regarding the keyboard: It's a great unit, both high quality and responsive. But, there's a learning curve if you've never used an ergonomic or split keyboard previously. Thankfully, the tilt-stand is removable so you can ease your way into the whole ergonomic thing! This is a really good set, opens up a USB port if you're using two wired, or two separate wireless, units and frees the desk of wires. I would recommend this set for any right-handed Windows desktop PC user.
Had this for 4-5 months and I'm loving it. I chose now to write a review as the batteries in the mouse have only just died, after daily use for both work and my personal PC. The keyboard is still going strong. I'm very impressed with the battery life.
The keyboard is very comfortable and I have noticed a significant reduction in the aches and pains I was starting to develop from excessive computer use. This was my main reason from switching over from my mechanical keyboard. The mouse is also comfortable, keeping your hand at a more natural angle while in use. The mouse is a little heavy, which may be a problem for some but I spend more time on the keyboard. The separate number pad is welcomed as it can be moved freely, or in my case stored away as I do not use it. The chiclet style keys are as good as they can be and also stop any dirt getting down under the keys, making cleaning easier.
I have knocked off one star for the function and media keys. They are actually buttons which is in itself a minor annoyance, and there is no dedicated function key, instead you have to physically switch back and forth (similar to shift vs. caps lock). In addition the software for rebinding the mouse keys was limited unnecessarily, e.g. you could set one button to play/pause music but that option would not be available on another button.
Anything I missed ask away and I will do my best to answer.
For the most part the keyboard is shaped like the 4000, but the keys require less velocity to type - much gentler on your fingers especially for touch-typists. Very very comfortable.
Having a separate number pad is useful, I can put it to the right of my mouse which everyone is likely to use more often than the mouse itself.
The build quality is solid and the design is uber-modern. The magnetic connections for battery enclosure and wrist support raiser nearly made me squeal with delight. Who am I kidding? I SQUEALED.
My only criticism is slight - I'd like to see this offered without the mouse to keep the cost down. The mouse is beautifully shaped, verging on vertical design, but I've already bought a far more suitable mouse as I'm sure most people have. It sits on the side gathering dust.
If it wasn't for the unnecessary mouse bundled in, this keyboard would easily get 5 stars.
