I've had this keyboard for five months, and I highly recommend it.

With the rubber grips on the bottom of the V3 Accessory, the keyboard stays right where it's supposed to.

This is the most comfortable keyboard I have used. The split keyboard feature allows comfortable hand and wrist positioning. The keys themselves feel great: easy to press, but rare accidental presses. The Mac function keys work well. I experienced no "learning curve": I was able to type efficiently right away.

I have two of the Mac version and one PC version. I ordered the Mac versions from Kinesis directly and had them customized with a 20" cable. With the wrist rests, custom cable, and shipping, they came to about $180 each, but they are a tremendous value. After using primarily these keyboards for 2 years, my shoulders experience no pain and my posture is greatly improved.

The key switches are not the best, but they get the job done. The flexibility in positioning is tremendous, though you will likely want a good, large surface for maximum flexibility.

The only downside is that Kinesis charges a premium for the 20" cable ($40) and the 8" isn't really long enough if your shoulders are broad enough (I'm very tall with broad shoulders).

However, there's really nothing else like this on the market at this price point--and the folks at Kinesis are fantastic to work with if you have questions or comments. Highly recommended.

As far as ergonomics go, this Apple-oriented keyboard is pretty good and I like the split keyboard. That said, there are still a few problems. I'm coming from the Apple wireless keyboard, so that's my basis for comparison. As a programmer, a good chunk of my time keyboard use is writing code. Here goes:

1) The function key locks and unlocks like the caps lock key. Not quite sure why they did this, and I find it rather inconvenient. If I want function keys to act exclusively as function keys instead of volume control, etc., I can set that in the preferences. This also prevents you from using function in keyboard shortcuts (for example, fn+down arrow for page down, etc.). Sure, there are dedicated page up/down home/end on the keyboard, but they're placed in a very inconvenient (for me) position. Why break the default apple shortcuts?

2) The keys take significant effort to push down, especially coming from an Apple keyboard. I find that I type significantly slower on this keyboard and my fingers get tired much more easily. That said, this gives you more response than the more shallow Apple keyboards.

3) Key locations and widths differ from Apple defaults and make accuracy more difficult. Likewise, the placement of home/end/pageup/pagedown keys along the right end of the keyboard (next to delete/return,etc.) with no space between them make it easy to miss the delete/return key and end up somewhere you don't want to be.

4) Escape key is located pretty unusually from the main keys. This is really annoying if you use Vim a lot.

The keyboard also has a lot of useless buttons including web forward/back, cut/undo/copy/selectall/paste, etc.

This keyboard made my wrist problems go away instantly. I don't think a keyboard could get any more comfortable. The only issue I have run into recently is that the Command button on the lower left side is starting to stick. I use Command+Q all day long however so it is a heavily used key. I would call this a minor issue since it doesn't stick often and I have been using this keyboard for two years. These keyboards are expensive but if you are on a workstation for any amount of time, this keyboard will save you way more pain and $ in the avoided medical expenses. I could not recommend this keyboard more.

AMAZING KEYBOARD !!! I couldn't tell initially what my wrist and carpal pain was until a family member told me that it was the keyboard I was using. So I searched for a keyboard that would correct my issues. Well I found this keyboard and decided to buy it and see the results. This keyboard corrected my WRIST and CARPAL PAIN within days of using it !!! But it works better set vertically. I have mine at around 80 to 85 degrees vertical. Although not the full 90 degrees, it still works perfectly. The only thing is the accessory that goes with this unit, called the "Ascent Multi-Tent Accessory" that holds this keyboard at it's 90 degree angle is a WAY TOO EXPENSIVE. Don't waste you're time paying $180.00 - $200.00. Use a Box of some kind; mine measures - 12 x 9.5 x 4". That's the best size box for this type of keyboard. Put them on either side of the box and it will fit your needs perfectly. I've been using it for a year now and tried to find a cheaper website that carried this "Ascent Multi-Tent Accessory" item. Even on "sale" at $179.00, it's still not worth it. Again, USE A BOX. To any reseller selling this accessory - what was your cost for these things? $90 or $100? Because if it was, you should dump them at that cost you bought them for and be done with it. If you paid more than what I said, then they're going to be even harder to sell... This piece of metal "accessory" shouldn't be any more than $40 to $50 tops. No accessory should cost twice the amount of the main item you're trying to sell; which in this case is the keyboard. It's no slight on the resellers, just the decision to allow this accessory to be sold for such a high price for such AN AMAZING KEYBOARD !!! WHICH BTW, IT IS !!! :-)

P.S. If anyone wants to see a picture of how mine is set up, just reply and leave your email address and I'll email you the picture. I'll try to see if I can load up a picture of my keyboard/box setup so you can see what I'm talking about. Again, AMAZING KEYBOARD !!! :-)
