I believe I am in a minority of people who like the form of these keyboards. It fits the way my hands and arms angle, and I don't have to push my wrists toward each other to hit the keys. This keyboard has a build up toward the center so that the reach is easier with second fingers. The fact that it is wired is not a big deal to me, because the other qualities make up for the small inconvenience. I am much more comfortable on this type of keyboard and if I should need another, I would buy the same model. Microsoft was once again thinking of the consumer's ease and products being user friendly.
Excellent keyboard. A long time ago I had a Microsoft Ergonomic Keyboard similar to this one and my wife said that it would take about a week to get use to. I took to it like a duck to water. When it finally died of old age, there wasn't any to be found, so I went with the Logitech Wave. Well it to died, then I found the 4000 Love all the new features like the zoom button and programmable function keys.
