The only reason I bought this...
Strengths: Wireless, Natural Keyboard, bateries last long.
Weakness: Random erratic functioning, software always specifies that battery is low, odd INS and END key layout.
The only reason I bought this system was because it was similar to my Natural Keyboard Pro (I needed to change it because it was too loud). Using the INS and END keys every day since the early 90s makes it diffcult to get used to the new layout (I wonder what was M$ thinking).
The wireless capability is good, although it will sometimes work erratically; a re-sync needs to be performed.

I would rather have bought a...
Strengths: Large, correctly-placed CTRL and ALT keys. Good range.
Weakness: They included an EULA! An F-Lock key that by default is deactivated (hardware) and requires a hit before you can do anything useful with the top row.
I would rather have bought a keyboard from any other manufacturer, but this keyboard has the best placement of the CTRL and ALT keys that I could find. The EULA that this thing came with is hard to believe. You really have to hand it to Microsoft who have taken software form something with little perceived value into something that limits your rights in less than 20 years. They call this kit an...

I would rather have bought a keyboard from any other manufacturer, but this keyboard has the best placement of the CTRL and ALT keys that I could find.
The EULA that this thing came with is hard to believe. You really have to hand it to Microsoft who have taken software form something with little perceived value into something that limits your rights in less than 20 years.
They call this kit an inseparable system which includes software and hence carries an End User License Agreement in order to undermine our rights.
As much as I don't like the strong arm tactics, I have to admit that there is no alternative for a well designed keyboard. Thankfully, the same is not true in the case of operating systems!

I highly recommend this keyboard...
Strengths: Touch; extra custom buttons; convenience.
Weakness: A little pricey.
I highly recommend this keyboard and mouse. I have been anxiously awaiting a Natural keyboard that is wireless. The colors even match my computer. Installation took only a few minutes. The extra buttons across the top work great - unlike with some keyboards I have used. The price is a little high, but if you really shop around, you can find good deals, especially at Amazon.
