Summary: Switched from a standard keyboard to see if it would help my hands from being so tired and it does. However, the space bar kept sticking but it seems the more I use it, the less it happens so maybe I just need to wear it in a bit more. Plenty of features on it. I'm sure I'll like it more once I get better used to it and the space bar doesn't stick any more.
Summary: I use this keyboard on a daily basis. It was purchased for me at my job a year and 3 months ago. I have already worn off the letters "s", "d", and "c" and the numbers "1, 2, 3, 4 & 5" from the numeric keypad. I worked at another place with the same keyboard for 5 years and never wore a letter off.
Excerpt: The ergonomic style, you either like it or you don't. For me, I don't, but I do like the keyboard itself. The amount of stars has nothing to do with my personal preference on style of keyboard, but more about the keyboard and it's functionalities. The reason why I took off a star is that in some instance, the keys tend to stick depending on the angle you press it.
Excerpt: I had a simple, $20 keyboard from logitech that I was relatively content with, but I was also aware that eventually my wrists were not going to be so happy with me if I kept using it. My boyfriend has this keyboard and is incredibly happy with it, so when it went on sale, I decided to give it a shot. It is a very comfortable keyboard, I have to admit. They keys have just enough give to be satisfying to press, but aren't at all stiff.
Excerpt: This is the first ergonomic keyboard I've ever owned. It took me a while to get used to the repositioned keys. Once I got used to the keys, my typing speed increased dramtically. I suffer from carpal tunnel and have always had to rest when I was on the keyboard for any lenght of time. I can now type longer and with fewer mistakes. I love the hand rest. The function keys are programable. This is a good keyboard and I do highly reccommend it. It has two positions...
Excerpt: I've owned 4 of these Microsoft 4000 Ergonomic Keyboards now. I love the keyboard, that's why I bought 4 but they are somewhat problematic (or at least they can be). The first 3 I bought each had the same problem. Some of the keys required multiple pressings or sometimes outright pounding before they worked. So it took 4 keyboards before I got one that worked properly and I have to admite that it was worth the trouble. The features on this keyboard are top notch.
Excerpt: Like the name suggests, the keyboard puts your hands in the "natural" position when you type. Quite often my hands hurt at the end of a long day. Ever since I switched to this new keyboard I feel like the strain on my wrists have gone down. It's definitely nice that I can do more work without resting often. I would definitely recommend this keyboard for someone who uses it to work. I would say any office job would benefit from this.
