Microsoft Curve Comfort 2000
- Great key layout, Nice design, Accurate
As far as your basic desktop, wired keyboards go, this model is right up there with the best of them.
Price$ 39.95 (AUD)
Wired keyboards are rapidly becoming old-hat. We haven't had a regular wired model come through the office since the Logitech G15 and that model had enough other features that it was worth taking a look at. The Comfort Curve 2000 is slightly less robust offering an ergonomic key design with what have now become standard shortcut buttons. Nonetheless it is a solid desktop product that will satisfy almost everyone.
The Comfort Curve utilises a flat key design similar to a notebook but not quite as low. We found it to be one of the most comfortable typing experiences we've ever had. The keys are not quite as angled as some other ergonomic models, but they have a slightly bent layout that fits well with the fall of the fingers. We suffered no noticeable finger strain even after long typing sessions and found the lower keys actually made our rather questionable touch typing much more accurate.
Not only did it improve our typing but it sports a classy, dark design that fits perfectly with the sexy Dell-Black motif we have going around the office. It takes up a fairly standard sized keyboard footprint and is generally very easy on the eyes.
The shortcut buttons cover some of the basic media functions such as volume and pause, but failed to provide track skip options. There are also internet shortcuts such as back, forward and email, as well as a link to the calculator program. Whilst this feature set isn't incredible by any stretch of the imagination it is more than adequate for most people.
With this model we suffered none of the problems we had with Microsoft's other wireless offerings. Those keyboards had a habit of dropping some of the keys you typed whilst getting stuck on others, providing a very frustrating typing experience. The Curve Comfort 2000 on the other hand is probably the best basic desktop alternative we have seen and we would highly recommend it for most daily computer tasks.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.
It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.
The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic
