I now have a new mouse and keyboard, and they are awesome! The keyboard is the Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 and it’s definitely the most comfortable keyboard I’ve ever used. It’s unique for several reasons: the comfortable curve in addition to the “natural” style of keyboard; great key action; comfortable, padded wrist wrest built-in; and reverse tilt. This one is for home, but I know I’m going to end up getting on for work too.
The mouse is the Wireless Optical Mouse 5000. There’s not a whole lot interesting with the mouse, other than it’s a lot smoother than my previous first generation optical mouse. When I picked it up today, I really wasn’t expecting a better feel, but I sure was wrong.
If you’re in the need, these two products are definitely worth the money. Particularly the keyboard.
