Reviews around touch (4.58 of 5)

  • The "floating" numpad is a nice touch as I can move it out of the way when not in use
  • The keys are soft touch versus others that require a harder type stroke so there is less fatigue over longer use.
  • It is easier on my wrist, has a 10 key that you can move around, and has the flatter soft touch keys I love
  • Such a comfortable keyboard and light touch is all that is needed to use it
  • The "U" key broke after 3 months

Reviews around thing (3.58 of 5)

  • The last thing you need in VI is a CapsLock lurking around
  • Good keyboard but the only thing that bothers me is that sometimes when my computer is off the keyboard will drain the battery that's inside like if it was on the entire day when it's not
  • I love this keyboard... the only thing I wish it had was an on/off switch.
  • My one criticism is that the number pad stopped connecting after a few months, but to be honest that thing was just annoying to begin with.
  • But after a while, my wrists start to hurt, and that's also not a positive thing.

Reviews around use (3.55 of 5)

  • I don't notice as much wrist pain as using a standard keyboard, and now going back to normal is difficult for me.
  • The best keyboard I've ever used that is not made by Apple

Reviews around product (3.38 of 5)

  • Wish I could love this keyboard, and I have mostly gotten used to the feel of it, but the dropped keys makes it impossible to love this product.
  • I don't really like Microsoft products and generally go with Logitech every time
  • The first time I assumed the product was defective because it dropped keys so often.
  • This product stinks, and it is a shame because I like the feel of the keys and the angle of the split.
  • when I made the purchase, said again with the partially damaged box, at the time of receiving the package, the box was damaged, but the product did not come new, is used, and the numeric keypad does not work.

Reviews around key (2.98 of 5)

  • But the keys are responsive, and I like the clicks made when depressing them
  • Furthermore the keyboard has sticky keys some of which get stuck regularly.

Reviews around star (2.48 of 5)

Reviews around detach (2.18 of 5)

  • I didn't think I would like the detached number pad but have grown to really like it
  • The detached number pad makes the main keyboard compact and also makes for easy keying.
  • I like the keyboard and wished it worked as it supposed to function.
  • I'm not totally in love with the detached number pad - it makes it hard to get the muscle memory right when it's in a slightly different position every time, but overall I absolutely love this keyboard

Reviews around dongle (1.95 of 5)

  • It is very easy to 'install', just plug the dongle in and it works.
  • The negative is that Microsoft's USB "bluetooth" dongle is dedicated to the keyboard
  • If you lose the USB dongle that comes with the keyboard then the keyboard is useless.
  • I suspect this happens when I travel and leave the USB dongle in my USB port, but, IMHO, with such a compact USB dongle, it should be more sturdy than it is and should be able to travel in the USB port in the computer in a computer bag without receiving damage.
  • If you lose or damage the dongle, the $100 keyboard (I purchased the mouse/keyboard combo originally) is useless

Reviews around receiver (1.88 of 5)

  • I have a PC and I can plug the receiver into one of the front USB 3.0 ports, which is closer to the keyboard, and it works a little better.
  • * *whatsoever* that I have to replace my entire keyboard and mouse set because of one tiny broken piece!Please, please make a durable and *replaceable* USB receiver for your Sculpt keyboards
  • THEN you have to click the "C" (clear) button on the Calculator app in order for it to register that you, who just pressed the calculator numpad button, actually want to use the Calculator app

Reviews around connection (1.85 of 5)

  • As far as the keyboard goes, its smooth, comfortable, strong connection (no stuttering/lag) and fits perfectly on my desk
  • After a 3-6 months, random keys start losing connection and then the keyboard dies
  • It's doable, but the connection speed and key spacing work against you
  • My computer lives on the side of my desk, which is just too far for a reliable wireless connection
  • I liked this keyboard at first, but after about 6 months the connection started getting lost to the 10-key.

Reviews around doe (1.78 of 5)

  • This one does not freeze up when typing like the bluetooth one often did.
  • It does sometimes miss key strokes, particularly with the "tion" spelling pattern.
  • It sometimes cuts out on on my work laptop docking station (Dell), but taking the batteries out does the trick.
  • Sometimes, a simple brushing and blowing out does not rectify the problem - you may have to get in there and clean it out completely by taking it apart
  • The Sculpt does both well and for less money, so this is now my favoritie keyboard

Reviews around keystroke (1.73 of 5)

  • It will start ignoring key presses randomly even when a battery tester still shows a low-green charge level.
  • I haven't had any issues with my computer (windows 10) missing key presses even with the adapter connected to a USB hub.

  • I also like having the separate number pad so that I can position it how I chose.
