Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic Desktop review

 

Microsoft's new desktop kit that's comfortable to use, and Windows 8-friendly

Solid build Batteries included One USB dongle for all Ergonomic design

Expensive Mouse isn't great Windows 8-centric features might be alienating

A solid, well-designed keyboard that can protect against RSI and is generally comfortable to use for long periods. It's just a shame about the mouse. The Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic Desktop is a good example of what Microsoft does best. It has a solid...

This ergonomic desktop set provides good tactile feedback, but the keyboard's design won't be for everyone

Microsoft Sculpt ergonomic desktop

 

Microsoft has certainly flirted with the concept of ergonomic desktops and split keyboards for quite some time, and the latest result of this dalliance is the Sculpt ergonomic keyboard and mouse.

Well built, Spacious, comfortable palmrest, Keys have a nice press

Split keyboard can take a while to get used to, Mouse is chunky

Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic Desktop review

 

Microsoft's Sculpt Ergonomic Desktop keyboard and mouse bundle eschew compactness for improved comfort and functionality. Not only do these peripherals look good, you'll feel better using them.

On the whole, both the mouse and keyboard work as advertised in Windows 7 and 8. All we have to do is turn on our computer, plug in the dongle into our computer’s USB port, power on the mouse, and voilà!

Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic Desktop

 

The Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic Desktop is a trio of PC peripherals designed to reduce strain and improve your PC experience.

Comfortable ergonomic design. Stylish "manta ray" design. Three-piece set offers flexible functionality. Wireless design cuts clutter without monopolizing USB ports.

Keyboard has a pronounced learning curve. Lettering may wear off early.

The Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic Desktop combines some of the best ergonomic features with Windows 8 features that will power-up your regular PC use in addition to making it more comfortable. Throw in the simplicity of wireless and a distinctive, stylish...

Save your wrists from future pain with this Microsoft ergonomic keyboard-and-mouse combo

 

It takes a little time to adjust to the new layout of the Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic Desktop, but trust us, your joints will thank you.

The ; is a simple split-key keyboard with integrated shortcut keys and a spherical mouse, designed to take undue weight off your wrists.

Split keyboards are an acquired taste, setup takes up a lot of desktop space, and some users will lament the glossy shell on the mouse that attracts sticky fingers and fingerprints.

Whether you're already noticing early signs of carpal tunnel syndrome or just want to get started on prevention, the Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic Desktop is a cost-effective, well-thought-out solution that puts a healthy posture at your fingertips.

There was a time when secretaries, data input professionals, and stenographers were generally the only ones who suffered from carpal tunnel syndrome and other repetitive strain injuries. Fast-forward a few decades and everyone's posture is out of...
