Not for me

Excerpt: This keyboard had a couple of things that were not for me. The space bar requires more pressure than the other keys and it makes a noise when struck. The part that elevates the front of the keyboard makes it uncomfortable and was very difficult to remove. For someone who has used various keyboards over 50 plus years, it is not too easy to adjust to. After using it for a coupe weeks, I have replaced it with a standard keyboard.
Excerpt: I like the ergonomics of the keyboard. The keys are not as soft as some keyboards but soft enough. Unfortunately the keys get stiffer quickly and I have to by a new keyboard every 7-12 months.
Excerpt: I will say that the ergonmic design is great. It doesn't take a huge learning curve to get used to as others stated, and it forces you to type correctly (I'm a cheater typist and routinely use the wrong fingers for certain keys). The added wrist-rest is wonderful.My peeve is the size. 20 inches wide x 10 inches deep. It takes up a LOT of room on the desk. If you're cramped for space at all, this keyboard will cramp your style.
Excerpt: The keyboard is taking getting used to. I have never used an ergonomic one, but needed to. It seems to better on my wrists than the regular one, but like I said I am still adjusting. The added padded, raised bar area takes up a lot of room, so I am not thrilled with that, but I have not seen an ergonomic one that is smaller, so I think I am stuck with the added size.
Excerpt: I just received my 3rd, yes 3rd keyboard in a little over a week. I've used this keyboard before at another company because of the comfort of my wrists typing this way. I am on my 3rd because if you use the space bar with your right thumb as all were taught to do, it clicks and is a little stiff. If you space with your left thumb it doesn't make any noise but who can retrain themselves after years of using the right thumb?
