As in the title. This is the same model as shown here.

 

Purchased around a year ago, but have lost the warranty.

 

Used for a couple of weeks, but couldn't get used to it, so I've gone to a different ergonomic keyboard. Minor marking from usage, but approaching as-new condition.

 

$100 +shipping or pickup in Whangarei.

Any interest at $70 before it's off to Trademe?

A little off topic, but I'm wondering what you replaced it with? Last year I got the new "Microsoft Ergonomic Keyboard", but I've got a few issues with it.

$9.50 with Courierpost. I've got a couple of people tentatively interested, but I'll put you next up if they fall through.

I had a whinge about it here.

 

I ended up going with the same, the Microsoft Ergonomic Keyboard which ticks most of the boxes apart from having the ten-key attached to the right. 

 

What issues are you having with it?

I purchased this one because it is the first model that I considered close enough to the original MS Natural that I used from February 1997 onwards.

 

The main issue with the new model is key spacing. I use the function keys a lot to step through code, so I'd prefer them to be full sized and separated. I also didn't realise it was going to be such a problem, but the lack of a recessed Caps lock causes me to keep hitting Caps when typing 'a'.

 

I resisted buying other variants of the MS Natural due to the lack of a second Windows key, which I still miss, but there is a dedicated lock button, so I don't need to use Win+L anymore

 

It doesn't work with my KVM switch as a keyboard. It only works if I plug it in to one of the switchable USB ports. This means it is being (dis)connected every time I switch inputs and I can't use keyboard shortcuts.

 

Finally, the printing isn't robust. After ~12 months, Windows logo is partially missing and I could easily scratch the rest off. This model clearly doesn't have the longevity of the original. In fact, I like the original so much I recently purchased one new in box almost 25 years after the Elite replaced it.
