Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Desktop 7000 Review:
The Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Desktop 7000 is an improvement to the Microsoft Keyboard 4000, where there are specially added features described above, and a mouse which we can say is good enough ergonomically for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
Just like the 4000, this ergonomic keyboard is contoured to meet your hands’ natural posture, or at least Microsoft thinks it does. It is best suited for people who know touch typing. Users who know this typing method will get it, and will adjust more easily. This is because the keypads for the left hand are separated with the right using an empty space. It is made this way because when the hands are too close with each other, the wrists tend to bend a little more. Users who do not know touch typing may have a harder time adjusting with this keyboard.
Here are the bad news about the keyboard: just like Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000, the spacebar is quite difficult to tap. Also, the price of Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Desktop 7000 is just way too unreasonable for just some added features and an “okay” mouse which are both wireless. The reason for the price is because this is now a discontinued product, hence supply is coming down to a close.
If your hobby is collecting discontinued keyboards, then fine. If not and you would just want a Microsoft keyboard that’s ergonomic, better go with Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 or Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic Keyboard. This one is just not worth it.
Standard computer keyboards are flat on a surface. They are made that way so they are easy to stack and transport, you know, so business is easy. However our human hands are not made flat, so we would have to adjust on the keyboard we use day and night. Most of the time our hands are just unable to cope which leads to wrist pain, arthritis, CTS, or other Repetitive Strain Injury. Think twice on just sticking with the standard keyboard as it is best to not risk your health. Although it may require some time to getting used to, it won’t take long until you get the hang of it.
