Microsoft ComfortCurve Keyboard

4. Performance/Conclusion

Testing a keyboard is a subjective matter and depends on personal preferences.

First of all, this keyboard is very different to what I had been used to. It is thin. The design of the keys is flat and need less down pressure, making them more quiet and also probably means less strain on the hands! The inner columns of keys (TYGHBN) are wider but spaced evenly. This may not be ideal for gamers and it does take some time to get used to it.

The ergonomic design of the keyboard, the curved style is functional, even though there's no wrist support. The angles, size and feel are very close to what I had in mind before buying this keyboard.

Personally, I don't care much about the programmable buttons but the keyboard does have several Internet buttons (back, forward, home, search and mail). What's more useful are the volume controls (up, down, mute) and the play/pause buttons. On the right side is a calculator button, near the numeric keypad. Useful for quick access to the calculator.

The USB cable seems shorter, compared with other models, and could be an issue if the case is not nearby. Of course, this can be solved with an extension cable. There are two supports on the back, but they didn't seem very stable. I don't use them anyway...

After using the keyboard for several days, I am very satisfied with my purchase. I don't have any complaints. Of course, nothing is perfect but for the price tag, you cannot go wrong.
