    Easy to set-up and comfortable to use

    5/5
    I have used a regular / standard keyboard for my home PC set-up for all my life. I thought it was high time that I got an ergonomic one for the long-term health of my hands / wrists, especially with working from home during these unprecedented times. It did take a short time to get used to the new button positions but eventually, I was able to type relatively at the same pace as I did before. The wrist rest is good and extends the length of the keyboard. The rest is smooth and soft cushioned, which I find is quite comfortable to rest on. The hotkeys / short-cut buttons at the top are also proving very useful and with the three programmable buttons, I can quickly open my most-used applications and / or websites. At the moment, I do not see any cons but if I have to name one, I suppose it will be the overall size of the keyboard. It is larger than my old one and it does take up alot more surface space.

    Quiet and comfortable

    5/5
    This seems to be an improvement from my last (10+ year old) MS ergonomic keyboard. The keys are soft & quiet and the wrist rest is spongy and comfortable. The keyboard and mouse app (used to program the extra keys) was easy to use. Only negative is that the keyboard can’t be tilted forward and the keys are flat, so it’s hard to see which one you’re pressing. This means lots of wrong key presses while you’re getting used to it (or if you can’t touch type).

    Good value, reliable bit of kit.

    5/5
    This is a great product. Feels really solid, the keys travel nicely and aren’t too noisy. It’s well laid out (though the left switch key is unusually small and the delete key is right above the backspace which can be awkward). I’m learning touch-typing and was worried about the switch from a ‘normal’ keyboard, but I tried going back to a normal keyboard today and it was really difficult so I’ve obviously got used to it quickly.

    As on the tin

    Just as expected, wait to see if it helps with rsi

    Excellent

    This is a really nice keyboard, good depth to the keys and some nice additional hot keys. Very pleased so far.
