Its ok, Dont focuss on my rating, just read the review

 

Its ergonomic! Heh, yeah thats the main point I'd like to get across no matter how bad the keyboard is, its way better than a normal one. Plus, if you have a keyboard with similar arrow keys ("+" style rather than "T") then this is the keyboard for you

Now i dont personally own this model, the "elite", but just from looking at it you should notice that it doesn't have a "T" style arrow key, nor the usual 2 row of 3 (home,insert,delete,end...etc ) keys Not only that but it doesnt have any programmable k

I have used this model for going on 10 years. I ordered and bought a new one from newegg about 1 yr ago. The best keyboard for long term typing. Also the best keyboard for big sausage fingered relatives.

I echo Bill in Kansas's comments

 

I own 3 of these keyboards and I plan on purchasing more as soon as I can. They are, hands down, without doubt, the best keyboard ever made. Mine has survived for at least 8 years and two tours to Iraq. Sand, hair, dust...this thing just keeps going....

Not really a con, but all of the ones I own are PS/2 connectors. They come with a PS/2 to USB adapter, so it's no big deal...but a pure USB keyboard would be nice so I don't have to carry the adapter when I use this with my laptop (yes...I love it so...

I purchased this Microsoft keyboard to replace my old Microsoft Natural that I have been using since I had Windows 95! Both of my wrists have been broken in the past (work and motorcycles) and are very much limited in range of motion. This style of...

Welcome To Comfortable Touch Typing

 

If you\'re a touch typist, and if you have never tried an ergonomic keyboard, this is a great place to start. I picked up several of these, used, some years ago, and was shocked to find out how easily my wife and I (both touch typists) transitioned to...
