Summary: I've been in the computer industry for over 25+ years and I started using THIS version Microsoft ergonomic keyboard over ten years ago. Most people hate them at first: BUT, if you stick with it and us proper typing methods you'll double or tripple your typing speed. VERY, very heavy duty built.
Summary: Yes there is a learning curve. Yes it takes desk space. Yes it looks weird but after using this flavor MS keyboard honestly you can't live without it. When I go to user's desks and they have an old-school rectangle board I cringe. I have used this model of keyboard for 11-12 years.
Summary: Looks to me this product might be used product, even though it still looks new. I ordered it as a backup and just started to use it a few days ago. Unfortunate I have passed the 1 month warranty. It's time to buy a Elite from another seller.
Pros: I love MS Elite keyboard, but that experience doesn't apply to the product I got here.
Cons: The product I got quite a few keys doesn't function. Key: R, T, B, V The extra cable for USB port also doesn't do its work. This is another surprise.
Summary: I have used this model for going on 10 years. I ordered and bought a new one from newegg about 1 yr ago. The best keyboard for long term typing. Also the best keyboard for big sausage fingered relatives.
Pros: big, comfy, easy on the ole carple tunnel, less wrist pain after long typing sessions.
Cons: big: not gonna fit in a student sized keyboard tray. comes in white...and ...white.
Summary: This was my first ergonomic keyboard. When I first got it I thought I may have made a mistake due to the difficulty adapting to the design. However, once adapted I couldn't stand standard keyboards and realized how terrible they are on your wrists.
Pros: Very durable. Spill proof. Very comfortable.
Cons: Perhaps it would be nice to have the palm pad removable for some people? But I've always enjoyed it... Only an issue if you don't like palm pads. Not wireless (this also isn't an issue for me but if you require a wireless keyboard this one doesn't have that option) Once you get used to typing on ...
Pros: Keeps you wrists and arms at a comfortable angle; essential if you spend a long time in fromt of the keyboard. I've had this keyboad since 2007 and another before that which I bought in 2002. I wouldn't use anyting else.
Cons: One of the feet broke a few weeks ago - not bad for 5 years .
Pros: I love the natural feel. The buttons are a bit rough on striking down. I dont think its ideal for those who are looking for low profile buttons for quick typing. I still average ~90+ wpm. I use it for college stuff plus some gaming.
Cons: Arrow keys are different than what i'm used to, not like i use them much. But, the down arrow isn't between the left and right. Again, not a big deal, hardly use it, just something that I'm not used to.
Pros: I own 3 of these keyboards and I plan on purchasing more as soon as I can. They are, hands down, without doubt, the best keyboard ever made. Mine has survived for at least 8 years and two tours to Iraq. Sand, hair, dust...this thing just keeps going. Very easy to clean. I have hooked my wife on i...
Cons: Not really a con, but all of the ones I own are PS/2 connectors. They come with a PS/2 to USB adapter, so it's no big deal...but a pure USB keyboard would be nice so I don't have to carry the adapter when I use this with my laptop (yes...I love it so much I carry it with my laptop)!
