Split is in!

Pros:VERY Comfortable, easy to type, quiet, and I can type faster!

Cons:wierd arrow key setup....

The Bottom Line: I highly recommend this keyboard to ANYONE, no matter what they do. It saves wrist fatigue, and does exactly what you want it to do.


I bought my split keyboard awhile back just after the product launch. Wow was that a great buying decision. My old keyboard WAS REALLY OLD, and made my wrists go into a position that in the long term would probably be harmful. The Microsoft Natural Keyboard Elite solved this problem greatly. My wrists are in a natural, upright position, and I feel that it is easier to type.

Thanks to the PS2 or USB interface, (USB being the one I chose) I was up and typing in no time at all. The buttons are nice and quiet, but are not too soft or damped. They push easily and register to the softest touch. For me, the learning curve was about 5 minutes to get used to the new shape of this innovative keyboard. Your time may vary :-).

Really, I have no complaints about this keyboard, and have had it for about 2 years now. It does just what a keyboard should do, and it does it seamlessly. The same amount of buttons is on the keyboard with the windows 98 "special" keys. For those of you that don't know what these are, they are special function keys on the left and right of the keyboard near the CTRL and ALT keys that allow you to open the start menu or simulate right clicking on your desktop. Just in my opinion though, the arrow keypad to the left of the number keypad is oddly shaped with very small buttons. This isn't really a bad part about the keyboard, its just awkward to get used to.

This is a great keyboard that is suitable for gamers like myself, or just a casual business user. I highly recommend this keyboard to anybody that types fast, or would like to learn. This is an excellent keyboard to learn how to type on and is very easy to type quickly on. Right now I'm averaging about 70 Words per minute, and I'm only 14!
