Unlike the well-known Microsoft 4000 Natural Ergo Keyboard, which features a full-travel membrane keyswitch, the Sculpt Ergonomic keyboard uses a low-travel scissor switch which has a higher than average 'return to neutral' or "bounce-back" rate than most laptop style keyboards. The keycaps feature a slightly concave surface to aid in finger positioning as well as a subtle crowning which provides more distinction between keys than some current scissor switch keyboards. However, the varying size of the keys may prove frustrating to users accustomed to a standard layout. In addition the function keys are only about 1/3 of the standard height and use a non-stabilized membrane switch. Although these keys do support secondary functions such as multimedia these can only be accessed by switching between Standard mode and Alternate function mode. This is accomplished by a slide switch in the upper right corner of the keyboard. The absence of a FN key removes quick access to secondary functions while retaining full access to the standard function keys. Users who find glare and reflection less than desirable or who do not like fingerprints will not appreciate the housing which has a high gloss or sheen.
This wireless keyboard features Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) technology, designed to help protect information by encrypting keystrokes. Each keyboard is permanently paired with its receiver at the factory
A mouse and a separate numeric keypad are included with the keyboard.
