This time it was the A & Z keys.

A keyboard designed for people suffering from carpal tunnel or RSI should have a VERY light touch so effort isn't needed.

I've been using this keyboard at work for over a week now, and while it does what it advertises quite well, I have some complaints.

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.

Pros:
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.

Cons:
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.

About that plastic: if you're in even a slightly warm environment, your wrists are going to sweat, slip and slide all over the wrist rest. While the position is comfortable, they should have covered that area with something other that a shiny plastic.

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. Even w/ the cool factor of this keybaord, I can only give one star for these reasons:

- Customer service is horrible. I email them w/ below issues and they would not replace my keyboard.
- Space key frequently do not work.
- The whole keyboard frequrently do not work. Reboot fixes it.
- Keys feel really cheap !! even $10 OEM keyboards have a better feel
- Key letters on the keyboard start fading after 6 months

Verified Purchase
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. If we still were typing long dictations we might have liked it better but for our purposes we did not like it.
