Top customer reviews
The letter "Y" had been an ambi-letter for me where I used both my right and left hand so I do miss the ability to reach over to "Y" with my left-hand now, but for the comfort gained from this super cheap $20 keyboard, not much of a sacrifice.
The 10-key portion, I do wish that the NumLock key and the "=" key would switch places.
Do people switch NumLock On and Off that frequently?
For Excel formulas, yes, you can start a formula with "+", but still, they're technically supposed to start off with an "=" and it would make things much easier, making it quicker...
Or it would have been nice to make the 10-key portion all one clump, making it more reachable and I have decently big hands...
But, I assume they placed that slight distance for sake of uniformity/aesthetics.
Yet, the option of "=", "(", ")" and a backspace right above the 10-key portion is very Excel friendly and appreciated.
I just need to program myself to remember that.
If you have the desk-space and type a lot and/or use Excel a lot, this keyboard is definitely a must-buy.
Oh!! And the "command key" or the "right-click key" on the bottom right, in between the Alt and Ctrl key is so awesome!!
That's definitely a must-have for hot-key lovers, right?
I am generally a huge fan of Logitech products, but for some reason, Logitech uses that button as their Fn key for pretty much all of their keyboards.
But of course, many of the things that I mention are personal preferences...
Yes, this keyboard took a minor adjustment to get used to...I'm a very skilled touch typist and it took me roughly 15 minutes to adapt to it.
That's not too bad in my experience.
Buy this keyboard if you are looking for something to replace corporate or stock Dell / HP / etc. keyboards. You will NOT be disappointed.
For clarity, I work for the Government (replaced an HP keyboard with built in CAC reader) and use this keyboard to replace the government furnished one as well as a standard SCM Microsystems desktop CAC reader. Both work great. Also, I have 1 desktop computer, 2 monitors and a laptop on my desk, so I used all of these with IOGEAR 2-Port USB KVM Switch (Model Number GCS22U) and it works wonderfully to switch keyboard & mice inputs between desktop and laptop. The second input of the second monitor is always attached to the laptop (I just have to hit a button on the screen to get dual laptop display) and the input on the first monitor is always connected to the desktop, so I didn't need to use the monitor part of the KVM switch. This particular KVM switch comes with a little toggle button that fits perfectly on top of the "Microsoft" logo (top right of keyboard) on this keyboard, making very easy and convenient to switch inputs. All in all, very pleased with this purchase.
Keys are solid and responsive to the touch.
The shortcut keys across the top work well and are very handy
Keyboard is study and appears to be built to last
The "slant" of keyboard is natural and takes pressure off of wrists
Loads with windows without needing any drivers etc
I've had zero problems so far with any features thus far
The position of the keys are very awkward, I'm not really sure why. I'm still having a difficult time of typing without looking at keys even though I've used Ergonomic keyboards before. It's as if the spacing of them is slightly different.
I word recommend this product even for people who don't need an Ergonomic Keyboard
I've been using ergonomic keyboards since they first came out and the MS "Natural" ones have always been my favorites. This one improves on the old style with the addition of multimedia keys and other helpful additions, but like the original, maintains a solid feeling key action, superb durability, and possibly the perfect ergonomic design for touch typists, especially with larger hands.
Now if only Microsoft would follow this one up with a model with back lit keys I would never look at a different brand or model again. Make the first truly ergonomic with back lit keys and Cherry MX switches and you'd end up with a lot of the gamer market too! Build it and they will come...
