Logitech's Wave Keyboard is my favorite by far. That corded version they used to sell cost 3 or 4 times as much as the MS CC and it was well worth it. However, it's not widely sold any longer so after searching I opted for this instead. I thought the Microsoft Natural Ergo Keyboard 4000 keyboards were overpriced based upon past experience with them. I regret not getting that one instead.
This keyboard will be perfect for those who want the lowest profile ergonomic keyboard they can find. But for those who do a lot of typing, this keyboard's overall feel is not nice to type on. The keys don't have the tactile feedback of even the basic free keyboard bundled with new computers. The curve of the keypad layout is slightly better than the traditional linear design of those freebies. But it is not curved enough to really be ergonomic.
++ Keyboard installs itself on Vista or later and all extra keys work with the basic drivers
++ Key layout is curved slightly, good for those who don't want a full split keyboard
++ Integrated number pad is a nice extra for a budget keyboard
++ Quiet key action will suit those who don't like loud "clicky" keyboards
++ CTRL Shortcuts are starred under common keys like x, c, v, b, u, I, & f, making this a good learning keyboard
++ Additional extra keys include the normal function keys, back, forward, music controls and 3 extras (web/home, search & mail)
++ There's even a calculator shortcut button built-in
++ Keyboard's lower profile is much thinner than most ergonomic keyboards
++ Lowest cost in an ergonomic keyboard makes this an option for those on a budget
-- Plastic body is noticeably cheap
-- Keys have little tactile feedback, making this unpleasant to use for longer periods
-- Not curved enough for those who prefer full split ergonomic designs
-- Keys are sticker prints that will eventually wear off (typical of low cost keyboards)
-- High failure rates (also typical of low cost keyboards
It's a challenge to find decent results with ergonomic or split keyboards in this price range. Even at twice the price, I wish I would have chosen another option. The Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Desktop 7000 and Logitech Cordless Desktop Comfort Laser are each good options for those willing to spend more. And if you don't mind a more expensive wireless option, the Logitech K350 has the Wave design and is the primary keyboard I use on my main computer. Still, all the ergonomic alternatives require you to spend more.
I like the mix of functions and the value cannot be beat. But if you are looking for a true ergonomic split keyboard feel or even the "middle of the road" feel of the Wave, you will wish you had spent more on one of the alternatives. And if you like your keys to have a little bounce to them, you will likely be disappointed by this keyboard as well.
This is still worth it for a true backup keyboard that won't get used more than a few hours at a time, or for those who want the low profile and quiet key action. For everybody else, look elsewhere.
Turns out this keyboard is really comfortable! I didn't realize it until I used this keyboard, but on normal straight keyboards, our wrists are actually forced to bend a little bit, and this keyboard eliminates that problem. No more strains after hours of writing term papers.
There's a short learning curve, perhaps 2-3 days, to get used to the different feel of the keys' layout.
This keyboard also increases typing speed, especially if you're a touch typist. The increase is pretty significant, sometimes I have pressed the next button before I lift my finger off the shift key, so my CApitalized WOrds LOok LIke THis. I'm used to the amount of time required to press shift button in normal keyboards, so that took me a while to get used to.
Some shortcut buttons on top of the keyboard are pretty useful, and no installation whatsoever is required to enjoy those buttons. The ones that I use the most are back/forward for browsing, and volume up/down/mute. There's also a handy calculator button above the number pad on the right, which is also very helpful.
Overall, for $15, this is an excellent purchase. Highly recommended for people who earn their living by typing for hours at a time.
