A wonderful keyboard that is tailor-made for heavy pounding. I'm a writer so keyboards are one of those things I tend to replace on a regular basis because the letters are always being worn away. This looks as if it might last a lot longer and being ergonomically designed means your hands fit more naturally on the keyboard, a boon if you're a touch typist. One thing I might add for novice Linux users, it isn't mentioned in the specs but it just plugs into a USB slot and all the multimedia keys work just fine. You can configure the other buttons to do whatever you want.
An excellent choice for painful hands and wrists!
I have only just received the keyboard today; however, I know from years of experience using one with this configuration, that it will be excellent! I have moderate to severe arthritis in both of my hands and wrists. My previous ergonomic keyboard became unusable when the port for the old style round plug no longer worked. I have had to resort to a "standard" flat-style keyboard and my hands are so painful that I have trouble doing daily tasks. I feel confident that with the new keyboard, I will soon be greatly improved. I would highly recommend this split-style keyboard for not only those who suffer from hand and wrist issues, but for anyone who spends a great deal of time in front of a computer. The board configuration may look odd, but I can assure you that you will very quickly adjust to it and will find that the more natural placement of your hands will allow you to type comfortably for longer periods of time. 5/5/2018 Update: I have been using this keyboard since 4/25/2018 and, as I expected, the pain in both hands and wrists Is gone!

Comparison to the MS 4000 ergonomic keyboard
This keyboard just arrived. I've been using Microsoft natural keyboards for about 15 years now so I was curious to see if this one would be any better. This review is written mostly as a comparison to the MS natural 4000 keyboard Pro's: Keys are easier to push and significantly quieter than the MS keyboard. The space bar in particular is way better. As with the other keys it is quieter but also split which really reduces the noise and effort required to press compared to the MS keyboard. Quite a bit cheaper. Enter key is not too far from my pinky (I've found this to be an issue in some keyboards) Con's: It has a silly arrow key layout. Relatively minor issue. It has a stupid vertical home / end / pg up layout. Why, Perixx? The typing area is quite elevated compared to the palm rest, leaving your wrists lower than your hands by quite a bit (this may be a personal preference thing) Overall - Happy enough with it. Definitely good value for money. I've only been using it for about an hour so bear that in mind.

Long key travel
I've been using the Sculpt Ergonomic for the past few years, but its habit of occasionally missing the first keypress after you've paused for a while (presumably to do with some kind of power-saving mode) was driving me nuts. Also, the letters have worn off several of the keycaps, and the little pips on the home keys have worn off. So, I was really looking forward to trying the Ergonomic. Two things are immediately apparent. First, there is less of a negative slope with the foot fitted than on the Sculpt, which is a small shame, but not a showstopper. Second, there is more key travel - roughly 5mm compared with about 3mm on the Sculpt, and it is a traditional-style keyboard rather than the chiclet style of the Sculpt. As a result it feels very different to type on: the additional travel feels like typing a long passage will be more tiring, and it's weird to feel the top edges of the other keys touching the sides of your finger pads - something that never happens with the shorter travel and more widely spaced keys on a chiclet keyboard. Mind you, it's a minor thing - you soon stop noticing it. The general feel of the keys is good - they aren't rattly, they bottom out with a dull thud, and the collapse action of the membrane provides great feedback. Also, there is very little side-shake on the key caps. On the whole it's up there with the best of the membrane keyboards. This is really a workstation or desktop keyboard: it's far too big to pack and take with you, for use with a laptop. And, of course, being corded is no problem at all when it is permanently connected to your PC. In fact, it's an advantage - no batteries to change ever. I would say it's a great successor to Microsoft's old 4000 ergonomic - it is better in every respect, especially in the sound and feel of the keys. For me, it is a fine alternative to the Sculpt, as well. However, if you suffer from RSI then the Sculpt, with its lighter, shorter action from the chiclet keys would put less strain on your tendons, I think. In summary, this looks, feels and sounds like a really classy ergonomic membrane keyboard, and would probably only be bettered by a product with mechanical keys, at three (or more) times the cost. Provided you are OK with traditional-style key caps, and longish travel (compared with a chiclet keyboard), then this is a fine choice and brilliant value for money. Definitely recommended.
Great feel, difficult to get used to it, cant rid of Office key
Hi. I receieved this today and have issued a return already. The feel of the keyboard is great, looks classy, keys feel just right, but the ergonomic layout is VERY hard to adjust to, after 31 years of touch typing! I also really dislike the dedicated MS OFFICE button right next to the comma, full stop, I press it frequently. I'd prefer if it was customisable as I do not ever want to go to MS OFFICE website, and this kind of forced product tie-in is not appreciated. I am going to get the ugly Logitech K350 which is slightly ergonomically designed but way less extreme, and it has fully customisable keys and is wireless with a 3 year battery... and a mouse. Just looks pretty "boy racer" like. The MS is lovely to feel and see.

The natural evolution of Microsoft's ergonomic range
I got this to replace my broken Microsoft Ergonomic 4000, which was iconic at the time. I'll mostly compare it to that. This keyboard is very similar to its predecessor though brought into the modern age, even bringing an emoji button. At first I thought of this as a gimmick though admittedly I've started to find it a good time saver. 😁 The central bulge is less pronounced than previous iterations, though the feeling is about the same. I prefer the key layout quite a bit. Everything is a bit more square and lined up straight now. That uniformity has helped me learn this keyboard more quickly than expected and it feels good to use. I'm currently missing a few keys, especially the control keys and symbols though am quickly adjusting. The hot keys are more sensible than the 4000 and I think I'll likely use all of these. It's solid and sturdy and feels well grounded without being overly bulky. The keys are very quiet for their height, making it a good option for offices or wherever you want to not disturb others. In particular, although it doesn't have a split space bar, it's very easy to press quietly from the edges now. The wrist rest is very classy and feels very natural. Going back to the 4000 now feels a little gross for some reason. The software doesn't allow you to remap the Office key, which is frustrating. Overall very happy with this. certainly the best keyboard I've used. I've started to miss it when on other computers.

Great desktop keyboard & mouse set
I purchased this desktop combo after I had already purchased a separate Sculpt Ergonomic mouse for my Laptop. I was really pleased with it, so I got this set for my desktop. This set works off of just one USB dongle for both items, which are paired to this one USB dongle (found in the base of the mouse) at the factory. If you purchase a separate mouse, or the keyboard, *alone*; they'll need a separate dongle (and free USB port) for each. This set only requires one USB port for *both* the mouse & keyboard together. MOUSE: This right-handed mouse was purchased as an upgrade from my previous wired Microsoft Comfort mouse which had buttons that were starting to fail. I've never used an 'ergonomic' type mouse before and was somewhat concerned that I might have to re-adjust my hand movement to use such a design. This is not a problem at all! It fits the hand so well that within seconds of use I was upset I hadn't always had such a mouse! This is SUCH a good mouse. The "BlueTrack" technology tracks brilliantly on any surface (except for mirror finished glass & metal). It's reported to track more surfaces than a high-end laser mouse. I really like the size and weight. I don't like 'mobile' sized mice for daily work. So this is a pleasure to use. It has a great weight to it, probably due to the two AA batteries that it runs off. It weighs in at around 5.47 oz (155 g). Regarding battery life; remember to turn off the mouse at the end of use to preserve battery life. If you do that, Microsoft estimate many months of use per set of batteries. Holding this mouse keeps your hand tilted to the right, in a comfortable position. It feels much better to use than a regular mouse, where your hand lies flat over the top of the unit. With this mouse, your right hand rests naturally on it's right side, as you would if you put your hand on a desk in a relaxed way. It's got 5 buttons (7 if you count all the wheel's movements) that are all mappable to whatever you want them to do using the Microsoft Mouse & Keyboard Centre v2.8 software. I've made the inside thumb button a "Double Click" and it's great. You can change the blue Windows logo button to whatever you want, but by default it's set to open the Start Menu and I've found it really useful. The scroll wheel has 4-way scrolling that enables up, down, left, and right navigation and presses in as well. All these movements are mappable to whatever you want in the software. Connectivity is a breeze. Just plug the little 2.4 GHz dongle into a USB 2 port and it's instantly recognised in Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10, Windows 10 Phone, Macintosh Mac OS X v10.7-10 and Android 3.2-5.0. I was surprised as to how easy it all was. The range for the transceiver is around 10' (3 meters) so that's plenty. It glides around on it's clever magnetically held base brilliantly, and is an instant hit with everyone that sees it. They all want one in the office! KEYBOARD: I waited quite a while to write about this, as it took time to get used to this keyboard, as I've never used a split keyboard before. The very first impression is deeply affected by whether you use the magnetically attached tilt base or not. This option is more ergonomic, but as a newcomer to split keyboards, who doesn't touch type, I found it slowed my typing down so much that I couldn't use it and keep the speed I'm used to. (I type really fast on regular flat, clacky keyboards!) I decided to remove the stand after a three weeks and see how that went. There was an instant improvement in typing speed and spelling/input accuracy. However, I'm still slower on a split keyboard than a regular keyboard. In use the keyboard is perfectly functional. I've not noticed any 'mistakes' in wireless transmission as reported by some reviewers. I do notice that I often 'miss' the split space-bar and hit the huge "Alt" button instead. It's also taking me quite some time to get used to the position of the Delete button, where I hit the Return or Insert buttons instead. Something to get used to is that the Function "F-buttons" are shared with the media buttons via a switch. Shift the switch right and all the F-buttons are normal. Shift the switch left, and they all function as mappable media keys, not all of which work on Windows 10 through the Microsoft Mouse & Keyboard Centre v2.8 software. I found the "Snap windows right and left" buttons didn't work for me. Because of this, I leave the switch in the regular F-button mode and don't use the media keys much. I'm puzzled over the decision to separate the numeric number pad. I think it would have been better to incorporate it into the keyboard, as I stow it away on my desk to save space I end up using it less because of it. This separate pad runs off a large CR2430 Lithium button cell, while the keyboard runs off of a pair of AAA batteries, that - unlike the mouse - can't be turned off. However, comments & reviews say they last a long time. This set comes with a limited 3 year warranty for peace of mind. I really can't recommend this mouse highly enough for right-handed desktop or laptop use. Regarding the keyboard: It's a great unit, both high quality and responsive. But, there's a learning curve if you've never used an ergonomic or split keyboard previously. Thankfully, the tilt-stand is removable so you can ease your way into the whole ergonomic thing! This is a really good set, opens up a USB port if you're using two wired, or two separate wireless, units and frees the desk of wires. I would recommend this set for any right-handed Windows desktop PC user.
I had this keyboard in my previous workplace and absolutely loved it. I have been using ergonomic keyboards for years but usually have the wired version. The wireless version is so much better. It is slimmer, more compact and best of all, no cables to try and hide. I’ve never tried the mouse before but I can say, from one afternoon of using it I can already feel the difference in my hand and wrist. If you have never used ergonomic equipment before, it will take some getting used too but the investment in time and money is well worth it, especially if you are an office worker. I couldn’t believe how easy it was to set up. Both the mouse and keyboard come with batteries included and all you need to do is plug the USB dongle (hidden in the mouse) into your laptop and away you go! I haven’t tried the separate number pad, as I personally find the numbers on the keyboard easier to use. Hopefully this will last me for a while. Update: 4 months on and still going strong, haven’t needed to replace the batteries yet and I use this for up to 10 hours a day. Cannot recommend this enough.

I like it BUT there are a few flaws
OK, we'll start with the good. Battery life has, so far, been good for me, but I don't really see why the battery cover needs to be magnetic as this has come off more than once and almost got lost. The magnet could be a bit stronger as on the bar you can attach underneath to change the angle of the unit. I don't use it far from my desk so I cannot speak to the wireless range but it has always been perfectly fine on my desk next to the PC, as you might expect. It seems pretty well made and solid. Certainly I've seen no sign of the wrist rest material coming away but then I haven't been using it every day or for long periods (although I am now). However I used to work with two or three people who used the same keyboard and they did not have problems. I have never been a touch typist and never will be but it does force me to utilise my left hand more when typing which was my intention all along. I quite like the numberpad too, although why the little LED doesn't light up to show that num lock is engaged I do not know - seems to serve no other purpose. The main keys are enjoyable to use from my point of view. I've never understood the fascination with huge, clunky, loud, clicky mechanical keyboards. I've used them before (in a time where there was no other choice) and always hated them so these chiclet keys are pleasant and fast responding, although sometimes the shift key doesn't quite engage for me but that maybe a combination of my finger position and the annoyingly small left shift key. The not so good: - It could do to be a touch wider to suit bigger people like myself (I'm no monster but have broad shoulders and find my hands have to be angled in a bit more than I'd like) - The function keys should be full size because they are used a lot by software developers like myself - The function keys have a habit of physically sticking down which is really annoying - Why on earth do you have to move a mechanical switch to change the functions keys from F1, F2 etc to the extra functions like volume, home, screen functions etc? Stupid idea. - The right hand end keys are very annoying. Delete especially as well as the home/end keys and arrow keys. Because they are in non-standard positions, decades of muscle memory has to be re-trained which is just daft. It's not as though space is a huge issue - it's a desktop keyboard, not a mobile one. - The left shift key is a bit too small for my liking. Overall I'd like to give it 3 1/2 stars really because the stupid rearranging of the keys on the right and sticking, small functions keys and the weird mechanical selecting of the function key functions are all pretty annoying but the main part of the keyboard is good, as is the numberpad and it really has helped me to improve my typing so I'll slightly grudgingly allow it four rather than three stars. EDIT: Long term I had to stop using it because the non-standrad key positions were too annoying and worse, the numberpad just doesn't work. It seems to constantly drop the connection to the dongle and it won't work which is infuriating when you use the numberpad a lot, as I do. It's a shame that the wireless connection is so unreliable. I'm not sure what protocol they're using (BT/wifi etc) but it's a crap implementation. Means an expensive keyboard is now gathering duct and I'm now reluctant to experiment with any more pricey ergonomic keyboards. I am now using a ten quid wired MS keyboard and I hate it.
best keyboard ergonomic: Buying Guide
Many people complain about their backaches and neck pain after long hours of typing. This can be a sign of carpal tunnel syndrome, or repetitive stress injury, and can lead to pain and other symptoms. The best solution to this problem is to purchase an ergonomic keyboard. Most ergonomic keyboards are adjustable and can help you achieve a neutral typing position. There are several different types, but the most important is the Goldtouch model. This model is a perfect fit for those who spend long hours at the computer.
The ergonomic keyboard is designed with your body shape and typing style in mind. These keyboards feature an easy to use layout and allow you to adjust the keys in a comfortable position. If you spend a lot of time at your computer, slouching is a common problem. In addition, a poor typing position can cause carpal tunnel syndrome, which is caused by irritation of the median nerve in the carpal tunnel. Using an ergonomic keyboard can reduce or prevent this problem.
There are many benefits to using an ergonomic keyboard. It will support your work position. The split design of an ergonomic keyboard enables you to adjust the distance between the two sections. The mechanical switches are more accurate than those in conventional models, and will help you achieve a neutral wrist position. An ergonomic keyboard will help you type in a comfortable manner and help prevent injuries. If you want to get the most out of your keyboard, consider purchasing an ergonomic keyboard.
Ergonomic keyboards help minimize wrist and finger strain. They also prevent chronic pain and repetitive strain injury. Buying an ergonomic keyboard is not for the inexperienced. However, if you suffer from a specific condition, an ergonomic keyboard could be the best option for you. A quality, durable keyboard can improve your posture and prevent future problems. And, because they are built to last, they’re not cheap, so you’ll save money while using it.
An ergonomic keyboard has features designed to make typing comfortable and reduce strain. The keys are concave or tapered to provide an optimal wrist angle. The keys should be placed at a 90-110 degree angle. An ergonomic keyboard may also have two key rows that split or curve. These types of keyboards will help you avoid these problems and have a better wrist position. It is important to make sure your ergonomic keyboard fits your style and your needs.
An ergonomic keyboard is made with the user in mind. It should be positioned so that you can comfortably type for long periods of time. In addition, it should be designed so that your wrists are at a 90-110 degree angle. A good position will also allow you to sit up straighter, which will improve your posture. When you’re at a desk, make sure you are not slumping while you work. If your shoulders and wrists are rounded, it’s time to change your posture.
