  Watch out - Where have the letters gone?!

| | See all lunaticasylum's reviews (1)

I've used an ergonomic keyboard for years and years. This is a good model but with repeated use the keys end up shiny and the white letters disappear completely as your fingers rub them away. This is not a problem for me as I can touch type but anyone else who tries to use the PC in my house can't see which key is which! I also find the keyboard to be rather noisy and the "N" and "Y" button often do not work properly resulting in spelling errors! I think the keyboard should be matt so that the white lettering cannot be worn away. Other than that a good keyboard with lots of good softkey functions

Just a quick piece of advice for any gamers thinking of buying this keyboard. It's by far the best gaming board I've ever used. Forget so called gaming keyboards, this one os ideal for FPS or any other kind of game come to think of it. I've been playing competatively in a clan for years and swear by this model. The angles for your left hand on the "wasd" keys are so comfortable and natural that it make prolonged use a joy. You can't quite see it but it is very raised in the centre so it mimics your hands natural curviture perfectly.
The drivers are great and I especially like the feel of the built in wrist rest.
Only one slight, and I do mean slight drawback. And that's the footprint, it's huge. You need a load of desk space. I have an A3 size gaming mouse pad too, my desk is the size of a tennis court!
Great keyboard, amazing at the price. Shop arond too, I got one a bit cheaper than this.

  Best keyboard I have ever owned

| | See all tkin2u's reviews (2)

This keyboard is the best keyboard i have ever had it feels so natural typing.

It's made my word a minute score go up, i never get cramp in my hands after typing a lot, it looks great, the leather in your palm resting position feels great, the faction button's it has are just what you need and just in the right place so it don't take to long finding them.

And best of all play.com is the cheapest I've found online to buy it new. It's ever cheaper then eBay at play.com.

  Great keyboard

I am new to the ergonomic type of keyboard and although it takes a little bit of practice it is worth the effort. This keyboard is top quality, very comfortable and extremely well designed. I definitely recommend it.

I am a writer and so use keyboards for hours everyday, and this is great.
the support that comes attached tilts the keyboard forward, and not back to you get bent wrists. you can type without any pressure on your joints at all, brilliant.
The extra options for web browsing, zooming, controlling media player, and even a quick calculator button should you need it.
Great layout and intuitive to use. Nice job microsoft.
Even comes with a warning on the base, and advice website to avoid RSI or other complaints.

Play.com service. Ordered Tuesday, arrived Friday by courier, excellent as always

  MS Ergo Keyboard

Takes a bit of getting used to but feels so comfortable to use and all the shortcut buttons are great. Really happy with it, looks great too. Everyone that sees it says what a great bit of kit it is, even though it's just a keyboard.

I got this a while back and it was a bit strange to use at first and the keys are split, but now i am use to it its great and simple to use it looks cool being black and silver. and is so easy to set up the fav keys.

now i would not go back to a non ergonomic keyboard.
