Pros
-Durable as heck (I've been using this model for 7-8 years and never had any issues).
-Comfortable and easy to get used too (No more twisting your wrists uncomfortably when typing).
-Very affordable for the comfort it offers.
Cons
-Takes up a fair bit of desktop space.
-Not wireless (but comes with a nice long USB cord)
Summary
I bought one of these when they were near $100 brand new many years ago, and I am still using it. I haven't lost any keys, none of them have failed me in all these years.

Every other normal keyboard would have keys fail after a year or 2 at most. I suffered from sore wrists from typing for too long, but not with this baby.

Totally worth it at near $100, and totally worth it at NCIX's prices.

Pros
Super-comfortable typing, built-in wrist rest, all the extra-feature keys you'll ever want
Cons
Some people may look at this and go "huh??"; takes a bit of mental adjustment, if you're used to standard keyboards
Summary
I love this keyboard!! I switched to one several years ago and have never looked back.

Standard keyboards aren't designed for people. With their keys laid out in straight lines, you must bend your wrists inward to make your hands conform to them. Not so with the MS Natural Ergonomic 4000: Each hand comfortably rests on keys that are angled for that hand. The smoothly operating extra-wide spacebar compensates for the small amount of extra space between the keyboard sections.

If you've never used a split keyboard, it may take you a day or so to get used to being able to hold your arms straight and naturally when you type.

If you get wrist pain when you type—or if you just want to avoid it in the future—or if you're just tired of having to hunch your hands together to fit something that was never designed for a human, get one of these, and start enjoying using a PC!

Pros
Great keyboard - excellent price for a well designed ergonomic keyboard - keeps up with speed typing
Cons
it's large and a bit bulky - won't fit very well on small desk area
Summary
I'll give it 4 out of 5 because of the size ...

Pros
he keyboard is ergonomically designed, yet it isn't too pricey. The keys are quiet and don't stick. I've got medium sized hands and I find it comfortable to use.
Cons
Large size takes up a lot of desktop space. Hard to get used to the wave shape. Difficult to touch type and reach all the keys unless you have large hands or long fingers.
Summary
First of all, the keys are quieter. None of the keys stick like that had before. So it has gotten a bit better.There are now more hotkeys than before

Pros
good layout, comfortable, proper arrows
Cons
NOT SPILL PROOF!!!!!! NOT IN THE SLIGHTEST!!!!
Letters wear off easier than most keyboards
NOT.. NOT... NOT "SPILL PROOF"

Summary
I do really like these keyboards...I've been using them for years at home and have one at work too

as mentioned in the cons they are in no way spill resistant let alone "Spill Proof"

I spilled less than a tablespoon of (distilled) water near the spacebar and the zoom slider and it fried the keyboard had a newer one at work die the same way a couple years later

The numbers wear off very easily on the heavily used keys.

But that said now that the price has dropped below $35 they are a decent deal

Pros
* Solid
* Comfortable
Cons
* Stop working after 6 months
* Expensive when not on sale, you pay for the brand
* Don't work well when connected to a extended self-powered USB extension
Summary
I bought 3 of those, two from ncix, they all stopped working after 6 months. I tried the "Adesso PCK-308UB Tru-Form Pro Contoured Ergonomic Wired" still working after 1+ year.

Pros
really comfortable
looks great
Cons
none
Summary
I've been using the orginal microsoft ergonomic keyboard for the last 7 years, and decided it was time for an upgrade. I"m sure glad I did. This keyboard is amazing. It's incredibly comfortable, especially with the faux leather wrist rest. The keys are responsive, and smooth when typing. Plus it looks great.
The extra function keys are an added bonus. I"ve very happy with this product.

Pros
Good tactile feel.
Comfortable. Doesn't cause as much fatigue to my wrists.
Cons
Near impossible to keep clean!!!
Summary
I've had a couple of these keyboards, and I would keep buying them. They are comfortable, quiet, and easy to use. My only complaint is they are hard to keep clean! The black rubberized area on the keyboard shows everything.
