A great keyboard for those with wrist strain or carpel tunnel issues
7 March 2014
Summary: This is a great keyboard for those who have had or have carpel tunnel problems as I have. The split angeled keys help relieve the stress caused by regular keyboard use. I also like the built in touch pad. I can move the cursor without removing my hands form the keyboard -- unlike using a conventional mouse. This is the 3rd Adesso keyboard of this type which I have owned over he course of about 15 years.
Summary: The good * Solid * Long lasting * Much better than "Microsoft Natural Ergonomic 4000 Keyboard USB" * More comfortable The bad * The mouse pad and mouse button integrated into the keyboard is sometime in the way * The first keyboard let is too bright.
Pros: * Solid, * Long lasting, * Much better than "Microsoft Natural Ergonomic 4000 Keyboard USB", * More comfortable
Cons: * The mouse pad and mouse button integrated into the keyboard is sometime in the way, * The first keyboard let is too bright. I had to put a tape on it ;)
Excerpt: The split design is very easy to get used to and really is easier on my wrists. The touchpad, instead of the mouse, has reduced strain on my shoulder and it is almost healed. Just started using the Hot Keys - love them. I would definitely recommend this.
Pros: Comfortable Design, Great Features, Hot Keys, Not Having To Use A Mouse, Number Keypad Placement, Split Key Design
Excerpt: In 1996 I developed carpal tunnel @ work, workplace safety recommendation was to get rid of the mouse and always use a touchpad. Since that time I have had various models, and have always matched my home keyboard to my work keyboard. This Adesso model is the best. This is my second model of the same version, the previous one was about 6 years old, becoming sticky, and because I replaced my pc I decided it was also time to replace the keyboard.
Pros: Comfortable Design, Great Features, Highly Compatible, Quiet, Reliable Performance
Excerpt: I use my computer during the day at work and for doctoral study writing at night. I realized that I needed to change up one keyboard or the other. Got this keyboard and once I finally stopped reaching for the mouse I find that my hands and arms hurt less. I tried another integrated keyboard mouse combo, but I couldn't get used to the lack of a split keyboard.
