Description and Specifications

Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 is designed to take the pressure away from your hands and wrists and make typing an enjoyable experience. Besides being a keyboard that is good for you body, it also has wide selection of multi-purpose keys to make your Internet surfing faster, and more enjoyable

Along the top edge of the bulky Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 is a row of programmable silver buttons. Aside from the five Favorites buttons, they come preprogrammed to do things such as open a browser window, open an e-mail client, control media playback, and open the desktop calculator. You can easily reprogram them to open a different version of a program (for example, Chrome instead of Internet Explorer or Gmail instead of Hotmail) or to do something different altogether (such as open a particular file or launch a program). The five Favorites buttons aren't preprogrammed; if you forget what functions you've assigned them, hitting the My Favorites button calls up a window that shows you.

Specifications

  • The advanced ergonomic keyboard design of new Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 delivers the ultimate in comfortable computing. The proprietary “gull wing” design brings the keys closer to the user’s fingers, reducing reach and unnecessary motion while encouraging a more natural position. The keyboard has an optional palm rest for a 7-degree reverse slope, which in a usability study was found to encourage better arm and wrist alignment.3 It also features a cushioned wrist rest that is 7 millimeters taller than the keyboard, which places wrists in a less awkward alignment.
  • Zoom Slider features effortless control of digital photos and documents with just the touch of a finger, delivering true compatibility between hardware and software. Simply push the slider, located in the middle of the keyboard, to zoom in and out when navigating large documents or images. It’s the perfect companion for digital camera owners, because 80 percent of them store or access their images on the computer.4.
  • My Favorites Keys deliver one-touch access to your most-used Web sites, files and folders. Simply push and hold the key to assign it to the current destination, just as you would with a car stereo’s preset buttons. The key assignments also move with the individual user settings. In addition, you can simply push the Show Favorites Key to reveal the current assignment of each of the five My Favorites Keys.
  • Enhanced F Keys make it easy to complete common tasks with one touch. Keys are conveniently grouped according to usage patterns, such as New, Open and Close. You also can set traditional F Key functions with the F Key lock.
  • Customizable Hot Keys, including Mail, Web/Home and Search allow you to quickly launch these programs with the touch of a button.

Verdict
Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 would add productivity and style to any computer setup and as a touch typist, We initially found positioning my hands comfortably on this shipping unit difficult. But after about a day, I got accustomed to the way it felt. The well-padded palm rest made everything feel even more comfy.
