Like the mouse, but keyboard is cheaply made

Summary: I was experiencing severe wrist pain in my right wrist, so I thought an ergonomic keyboard might be my solution. Unfortunately, I was very dissatisfied with the quality of the product I received. I use the keyboard for my work, for around eight hours each day.
Summary: I think I may try a different manufacturer this time around.
Pros: The split key board and the ergonomics of the mouse feels good to the hand and posture. Not problems with connectivity.
Cons: Mouse eats batteries. I have two of these systems, one mouse eats batteries. On both mice the thumb grip has either bubbled or delaminated. The tracking on the mouse can be course and not easily used for graphics editing.
Cons: Poor connectivity. Often will skip letters and sometimes not work at all for a minute or two. Have tried resynching, using different USB ports, new batteries. Nothing works. Keyboard is essentially unusable because of this problem.
Summary: I enjoyed the design but hated the space bar action. It felt like you needed a hammer to get the space bar to assert the space character. As a programmer, I have fetish for a good keyboard and fell...
Summary: This situation reminds me of my high school typing class where we had to type on the old Royal typewriters with no key lettering. I know where they are but Microsoft should put a little more effort into higher manufacturing standards in this area.
Pros: Excellent comfort level for wrists.
Cons: I bought this for my wife, and she finds no fault with it; except that she does not like the mouse. I like the keyboard except for one little flaw - the lettering has worn off of the "A, E, and T" keys. Evidently those are the most frequently used, and they wore off very quickly.
Summary: I LOVE this keyboard's ergonomic shape, and own and love 2 wired versions. I had hoped for the same experience with the wireless version, and was disappointed. The mouse takes some getting used to, but is comfortable.
Pros: Ergonomic shape, built well, comfortable.
Cons: H and one or two other keys would not respond 1/4 of the time. This means you can't just type, you have to watch like a hawk to make sure the letters actually register, and you have to go back and fix it when they don't. Tried different frequencies, different USB ports, different placement of the...
Summary: Like many others, I am experiencing an issue where the keyboard just stops responding to input making typing a nightmare. I am not sure what could be causing it, but I am sending this thing back and getting something else.
Pros: If you like the Ergo 4000, this is the same keyboard without the cord. The mouse DOES have a laser...
Cons: The keyboard never loses signal entirely but it often seems to get stuck - it receives maybe 1/5 of the keys pressed. This can last two seconds or five minutes. It can happen a couple times a day or maybe once a month. It's finnicky, but never unusable and I still recommend it. The mouse is the r...
