Summary: There's a lot to like about this keyboard. The layout and waviness make is an easy touch-typer. However, the keys get sticky, and sometimes they need a lot of pressure to activate. This is REALLY irritating and mars what should be a top-notch product. The extra keys on the mouse are very handy for forward and backward in the browser history. I use them constantly and miss them when they're missing.
Summary: I bought two of these 2 years ago - one for work and one for home. I have given both a hard workout as I am a heavy pounder, and 8 hours a day minimum. The keys began to get sticky on both after about a year. I did the re-lube recommended widely on the internet - pried off keys, cleaned with swabs, used a dry spray lube and put it all back together. The keys continue to stick and make me want to throw the keyboard in the trash.
Summary: Overall, this is a pretty decent keyboard. Very light in weight. The keys are responsive. I've experienced no problems, thus far, after a month of solid use. My OS is Win XP Home Edition SP2 and all of the features are operable. However, it's baffling that an F-lock key is not on this design. NONE of the F-keys open/launch without holding down the Fn key. This is certainly an inconvenience as it requires using both hands at times.
Summary: It is great for crooked fingers from arthritis...easy to use my only problem is I ordered the new one...not refurbished...beware when ordering this Had a hard time with the customer service... they said they hadn't any new ones left and they do...The one I received is used... old batteries in the keyboard...marked and scraped without any paperwork what so ever...Came in a plain white box...not from the manufacturer... I wouldn't mind if I had ordered used..New...
Summary: Purchased this keyboard to use with my Mac setup as I knew it was compatible, and I wanted a keyboard with its very own wristpad. I was also intrigued with the "wave" affect of the keys themselves. This keyboard was certainly an upgrade from the Dell provided keyboard I had been using. My thumb was placed in a natural and comfortable position due to the provided wristpad which allowed me to strike the space bar with ease and grace.
Summary: I really like the comfortable built-in palm rest and the curved contour of the keyboard layout. But the other stuff I'm not too fond of. If the keyboard were cheaper, I could overlook it, but as it is, I have mixed feelings. F1 through F12 have custom functions assigned to them (eg F1 opens Microsoft Word) but you need to hold down Logitech's "Fn" key or else it will act as a regular F1.
Summary: Up to now, I've been using the Microsoft 3000 and 4000. The 4000 was my last keyboard. I love the feel of the 'slanted' keyboard but I hated the buttons. They have way too much travel and it has that 'sticky' feeling I don't like. I just got this Wave today. My first impression was that this wasn't a real ergonomic keyboard. Not like the 4000 anyways. I can tell because my wrist is still at an angle and there's some discomfort after a few hours of use.
Summary: This is a decent keyboard. The keys are a good size and spaced fairly well. The keys depress very smoothly and the keyboard is very quiet. Also, all extra keys are highly customizable via the Logitech software which make this keyboard even more difficult for me not to like. Unfortunately, I think the keys themselves may be too inset into the keyboard which makes my fingers have to stretch more than I would expect.
