1. Keyboard appeared used when I got it, but I was assured it was brand new....not sure where those smudges came from.
2. The plastic on this thing is a DIRT/SMUDGE/GREASE magnet. It's polished black, so anytime you touch the wrist rest area (basically all the time) you leave ugly marks. Plus, it scraches VERY easily.
3. Like the previous reviewer, I have a few keys that have to be pushed harder to get them to type, and ALL the keys require more effort that I would like....which in honesty is making this keyboard give me MORE pain in my hands.
My chief complaint is #3. A keyboard designed for people suffering from carpal tunnel or RSI should have a VERY light touch so effort isn't needed. Less effort equals less pain. This isn't the case here.
In all, it does work as advertised, I'm just disappointed in the crappy build quality for such an expensive keyboard. Hopefully the next revision will be better. For now, I'd almost perfer a standard Microsoft Natural keyboard....MUCH better key feel.
1. the positions it rotates through all work for me. It changes every 2500 keystrokes, so you're wrists are always in a different position.
2. You can force it to stay at a particular position that you like, or you can change it whenever you want via a keystroke
3. I like that it's powered off of USB and doesn't require a seperate power cord.
Would like to see in next revision:
1. lighter keystroke. This is not a keyboard for the light of touch, a good press of each key is required. It's not too bad, I've just had lighter keyboards.
2. Quieter motor. The motor makes itself know when it's changing position. It doesn't do it when you're away, so it won't freak out your cubical neighbors.
3. Different plastic used on the keyboard itself.
1. No home, end, pg up, pg dn keys by themselves, they are only part of the keypad
2. the arrows are a little awkward to use because they're on the far right of the keyboard. not a show stopper, just odd position
3. I have a bad g and 7 key, but that is probably just my own unit. They just require a little "extra" attention when I need to use them.
Overall, I like the concept of the keyboard and would look forward to seeing the next revision.
The touch is way WAY too heavy. You really have to press quite hard to make sure all the letters you intend to type actually make it up onto the page. I've never used a keyboard (short of a manual typewriter) that required this much effort to depress the keys.
Upon initial plug in via the USB the keyboard would just make the "USB plug in" sound over and over again. Keyboard would not work. Tried it in every UBS slot. Went to the Smartfish website to troubleshoot the issue. All they have is community forums. Good luck trying to talk to a human being. (Just like everything else these days.) After plugging it into every USB outlet a number of times, the keyboard randomly started working.
While I think Smartfish has possibly come up with a clever idea to improve the current state of ergonomic keyboards, they released this product too soon without getting enough feedback from the end user.

This keyboard is very high tech and it has a motor that moves the layout to different typing positions. My colleagues call it keyboard on hydraulics, aka low rider of keyboards. Read morePublished on February 5, 2013 by zeya oo
Neither myself nor two co-workers liked this keyboard. Since we do not type on a consistent basis it would re-adjust itself after only hitting a key or two. Read morePublished on January 7, 2013 by Amy Finch
