    This keyboard is very bulky and odd to type on. It does have some extra functions but takes alot to get used to.

    Works well, love the design. I did not realize, until I was using it, that it is bulky. Had to remove a part cause my desk is not that big.

    This keyboard types really well. I am in college and I have to write a lot of papers and this has really helped. I do like the divide down the middle, perfectly laid out for a touch typist. The only thing that I don't like is that is bulky.

    I bought a new surface book and it does not like the Wireless Ergonomic Keyboard / Mouse (Blue Screen Keyboard Error, A LOT! @@@@@@@ so I bought this to try and see if I have the same keyboard errors with a wired keyboard. Happy to report no problems at all. Only thing I don't like is it's a bit too bulky, keys are bit too large and have too much travel. So I would like to see a trimmed down version of this, like the wireless one.

    This keyboard is very well designed. It is bulky so make sure you aren't looking for something portable.

    It's a nice ergonomic keyboard. Takes a little while to get used to and is a little bulky but it's hard to go back to a regular keyboard after using one.

    It's the standard in ergonomic keyboards

    I only knocked a star off because the keyboard is quite bulky and after about a year or two, the printing on the keys starts to wear off due to the oils on your skin. It could use a sleep button as well. Still a better design than anything Logitech has to offer.

    Comfortable, takes up a lot of real estate on your desk. There is a learning curve, it forces you to type properly. It's big, those with small hands may find this keyboard cumbersome.

    Comfortable alignment. Eases wrist pain. It's a bit bulky and lettering wears off quick.

    My last keyboard was older than I want to admit. This is a nice upgrade though a little bulky if you have a keyboard shelf that pushes in and out. It fits, it just feels like the keys sit higher than the older models.

    It takes a day or two to get used to. It has advantages. But it's not worth learning all that - your hands might feel better on this keyboard, but it's bulky and you don't enjoy using it.

    Best keyboard I ever owned. I type for hours and my wrist is totally relaxed. Has some extra keys that allow you bring up the calculator, Internet Explorer etc. It comes with a USB-cable. The keyboard is large and may be a bit bulky for traveling.

    I bought one for myself for work, and I love it! It is so comfortable on my wrists. I went back and bought another one for my hubby. At the time, I bought them with $10.00 off too! Now, I just need to buy one for home. It is bulky though.

    As a professional transcriptionist, I type anywhere from 8-12 hours a day depending on the work load. I've tried multiple keyboards in the past, but this is by far the most comfortable. The one con I do have is that the design takes time getting used to. The first week I used it, there was a noticeable drop in my typing speed. It's mostly around the keys where there is the curve, because I'd constantly be one key off, just from muscle memory where those keys are shifted slightly. Within a week though, I got the hang of it, and now I'm back to typing every bit as fast, if not faster. Plus, I'm a lot more productive because I don't have the same wrist pain as before, and don't have to take breaks as frequently. Probably not great for gaming but if you type for an hour or more a day, I'd say it's well worth picking this up. The design is way better than other ergonomic keyboards that cost 4 times as much, plus it's not as bulky which is great for people who may not have a huge keyboard try on their desk.

    Great ergonomic keyboard!

    This is a really nice ergonomic keyboard (kb). When you put your hands on this you can tell that there was a lot of thought put into this. Besides the obvious arch of keys, the bar that raises the kb makes a difference! In many cases your kb is not ideally leveled to your elbows so your hands will arch when your wrist lays on your wrist pad. The bar solves this issue by raising the wrist pad area. It feels really comfortable. It's bulky for sure, but it was designed this way for comfort. The programmable function keys are also a nice addition. It's flexible enough to add a path or url, effectively opening up a website, file, or program. The only thing I disliked and had to get used to was that I am not a fan of split-kb as I don't type standard (eg. type B-key with my right hand). Anyone who sits in front of the screen for more than a few hours a day needs to get an ergonomic kb to save your wrists!
