The events that followed show, IMHO, that the folks at TypeMatrix are serious about customer support.

I've had mine for one and a half years now and I'm very happy with this keyboard - so much, that I'm buying a second one (although it is pretty expensive).

I found that one thing that really aggravated my wrists was hitting backspace and enter with my pinky.

I bought a Typematrix 2030 keyboard to use at work when I discovered I had some RSI pain in my arms. The initial main reason for choosing it was the very narrow width of the keyboard which allowed me to move my track ball in right next to the keyboard and reduce the motion of my arm when switching between the keyboard and the mouse. I've used it for a few years now and finally decided to get another one for use at home. I like the typing feel of the keyboard, it doesn't have too much stiffness to the keys. Both of mine are QWERTY keyboards with the option to switch to Dvorak layout.

Pros:
* Narrow width that moves the mouse in closer.
* Quality, I've never had any problems with my keyboard.
* Typing feel is nice.
* Layout is very nice (once you get used to it).
* The ability to switch to Dvorak mode if you want to go to the next stage of optimizing your keyboarding experience.
* Availability of membrane skins with the alternate keyboard layout (e.g. Dvorak) so that you can be add the skin and have a different keyboard layout.

Cons:
* Price is pretty high.
* The number of features available can make the keyboard confusing to use at times. Sometimes when I hit a wrong set of keys at the same time I end up putting it into a different mode and then have to switch it back.
* Using the skins over the keyboard is a little bit harder than just the keyboard. I've used my first Typematrix 2030 for over 2 years without a skin with no problems, so I guess the skin is a personal choice.

Overall, I really like this keyboard and recommend it highly. The only people that I wouldn't recommend it to would be heavy users of the numeric pad. It gets it's narrow width from integrating the numeric pad over the other keys so it isn't quite as convenient as a normal 104 key keyboard if the numeric pad is used frequently. But for normal typing, it works great!

I've had mine for one and a half years now and I'm very happy with this keyboard - so much, that I'm buying a second one (although it is pretty expensive).

Pros:
- small
- aligned keys (i.e. not staggered)
- hardware switch for dvorak, my preferred layout
- nice key response (it' somewhere between a laptop keyboard and regular keys)
- solid build
Cons:
- requires an USB adapter for non-PS/2 interfaces (the adapter is included with the package)
- no extra num-pad, I don't use the integrated one at all
- some manual remapping of keys might be required to fit your needs
- there is no means for raising the back of the keyboard (most keyboards have expandable feet)

This is my keyboard of choice, the pro's by far outweigh the cons for me. The only thing I would wish for future versions is a complete separation of the left and the right keyboard parts.

4.5/5

I have gotten so used to my keyboard, I find it difficult to use anything else. I bought my keyboard used and have had it for over 6 years. I did not find the learning curve to be that difficult. I do hate switching when I go home or use someone else's computer. I'm currently looking to by a new Typematrix since the space bar's bounce on mine has just about worn out. But I'm holding off because I like how I've worn down the letters on the keys, it really keeps people away from my computer!!

BACKGROUND
About 2 years ago I came down with a really severe case of tendonitis. I couldn't use a mouse, type, ride my bike, or even carry groceries. It was terrible. I tried every ergo-keyboard I could find on amazon at the time and none of them helped at all until a friend told me about this particular type. Granted, recovering from the tendonitis was more than just a keyboard switch, but, since getting the 2030 I haven't gone back, and I don't think I ever will.

WHY I LOVE THIS KEYBOARD
This keyboard takes about 2 days to get used to, but, it's worth it. You type faster and more your fingers less awkwardly, even in querty. The square layout is far far far more normal for my fingers than the offset on most keyboards. I spend much less time reaching for keys at an angle. The function key allows really easy flipping between arrow keys (sort of like vim, if you're a vim user) and typing, so, you can scroll through web pages or code or text without ever moving your hands. I found that one thing that really aggravated my wrists was hitting backspace and enter with my pinky. The backspace and enter being in the middle has completely fixed this for me. Also the space bar is less awkwardly placed than on my macbook pros built in keyboard. OH, and I'm constantly using the quick play button to turn my music on and off. I would recommend this keyboard to really anyone, regardless of if they have issues with their wrists or hands.

AFTERMATH
I now own 5 of these keyboards - 1 at work, 1 at home, and 3 backups in case I spill coffee on 4 of them (though, that's not an issue if you use the skins)

IMPORTANT NOTE
This keyboard took me about 1.5 days to get used to. I wasn't super fast at first. Though I could get by just fine, typing was a touch frustrating.

TypeMatrix is in my opinion one of the best ergonomic keyboards on the market. There is a slight learning curve if you are just using qwerty layout, and a large curve if you are switching from qwerty to Dvorak. It took me about two months to learn Dvorak, and I am happy with my keyboards that I purchased. I currently own two of these boards, one for home and the other at work. The first keyboard I have used it for three years with no complaints. I have used it on several different operating systems including Linux and Windows (xp, 7). What I can tell you about the keyboard is that it is built with quality material and the layout is good. My wrist never hurt and I type at good speed. The owners are very nice, and expedite most orders. Not sure why other reviewers are crying about having to learn. Bottom line...you won't be sorry.
