Microsoft made another crap!! Similar to the review on 4/13/2008, this keyboad causes computer to malfunction. It interfers with booting sequence, and possibly I/O sequence by keep sending data to a computer. (without me typing) If I plug in after booted, it worked fine for few hours, and then start sending a data again. (without me typing, of course) I never saw or hear defect keyboad other than this product at my work or private. You DO NOT want this product. Simple device like keyboad must not have high defect ratio.

-IT engineer quote

I bought a Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 for my wife's computer. She liked it. It worked for a couple of weeks and then her computer wouldn't boot -- no keyboard. I unplugged the USB connection, plugged it back in, and it worked for a few more days. Then her computer wouldn't boot, no matter what -- no keyboard. I went back to the PS2 keyboard she had been using, and ordered another MNEK 4000. When it came, I plugged it in and it worked for a few days. Then, it wouldn't work at all. I don't know whether the problem is in the keyboards or the computer. Whichever it is, it's been an unpleasant experience.

Pretty good keyboard

by Claudia Piegdon on 10/16/2006

This keyboard is very comfortable to use. I've used the "natural" type keyboards since they have been available to the public, and I love them. On this model, there aren't as many hot keys as there are on the previous Microsoft natural keyboard (the grey with blue hot keys),and I used most of them a lot. Also, this keyboard is black with white lettering, which is not as easy on the eyes as the previous model. Read More
