Microsoft Sculpt Comfort Keyboard

Wireless keyboard

Microsoft has a selection of ‘ergonomic keyboards’ and the Sculpt Comfort is much like the Comfort Curve with a split space-bar. Its angled keyboard leaves your hands pointing slightly inwards rather than directly forwards.

It’s the sort of keyboard that many people find hard to get used to.

The keys on the Sculpt Comfort are shallow compared to most desktop keyboards, and the travel isn’t as deep or crisp as I prefer – but I thump the keyboard pretty hard. If you’re a regular-to-gentle touch typist, you should find the depth and travel comfortable, though things may feel a little soft.

While I had a few initial hiccups with the keyboard shape, I was at my usual typing speed within ten minutes. The wrist rest is curved, and because that’s hard to find, I was disappointed that this one was quite high set but very lightly padded. If you, like me, suffer from wrist pain, you may find it unsuitable.

The only unusual features apart from the keyboard’s shape are its split spacebar, which can have the left hand side converted to a backspace, and a switch in the top right corner that toggles the function keys to multimedia/Windows 8 keys. You may find the backspace function unfriendly, if you use your left thumb for the space bar.

All up, this is a nice wireless edition of a contour keyboard. If you’ve never tried a contour keyboard before, try it out in a store before committing, but if you’re after a wireless equivalent to the Comfort Curve, this is as close as you’ll get.
