Microsoft Keyboard 4000 Natural Ergonomic
  • Key strokes are light and the ergonomic position is perfect.
  • The tactical touch and feel of the keys is super. Just right.
  • The feel of the keys is satisfying - albeit on the louder side.
  • The keys are easy to reach and the angle is just perfect.
  • Once I got used to the spit keys, it is great. Some of the keys "dead sound" that makes it seem like a cheap keyboard.
