Microsoft has engineered the Comfort Curve 3000 to compete with the standard, flat keyboard, and in that aspect is passes with flying colors. They have also done very well keeping costs down to maintain a price point that appeals to the mainstream user. Though other 'Curve' options are available, many sport features that raise the price-point to well over the $50 mark. Though I was immediately turned off by the glossy finish, I will still be keeping the 3000 around and tossing out my old, flat standard boards. I'd like to see either a wrist rest or adjustable heights, but at $24.95 the Comfort Curve 3000 is still the ideal choice for users that are looking a comfortable, contouring board.

I had a gel pad wrist rest, that would probably work well, of course it is not curved like this, so maybe they will release something more official. Looks like a good board at a good price.
How's the key sound volume, and how many keys can be pressed at once before it spazzes out?

It uses a silicon-based dome switch, so they aren't very audible.
