"Takes some getting used to!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I love my new keyboard. My wrists rest softly on the supportive padding, and I still have good coverage of the keyboard.

All of the special functions including Quick Touch Program Initiation are fantastic for someone like me who is at my computer for at least 10 hours per day. Accompanied with the Logitech Trackman mouse, the Microsoft Ergo Keyboard is a computer nerd's dream!

"Nice key board, wrong colour ....."
4 stars"

I found this is great to use in a good light, but because the keys are black, and the lettering on the keys is fairly thin and is white, I found this combination hard to see, unless I had a desk light going as well. My eyesight is not what it was years ago ...... LOL. It is a shame there was not a white keyboard with black lettering available as I would grab it straight away. I have reverted back to the Ergo from DSE, but am looking ..........

"Just got my second one"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Had to get another one of these as my wife stole the first one. She tried it one night and the next day when I got home from work I had her scungy old keyboard attached to my PC. But no worries two days later Mighty Ape had a new one on my doorstep, cheers.

"A La-Z-Boy for your hands."

Purchased on Mighty Ape

I've had this keyboard for a while now, and despite owning a couple of expensive mechanical keyboards, this remains my go-to piece of kit for coding, writing and other keyboard intensive tasks. The split layout takes a little adjustment when you first get it, but it rapidly becomes second nature and reverting to a standard keyboard is something done out of necessity rather than preference. The wrist rest is comfortable and easy to keep clean, and the extra keys and buttons are all really handy for media playback and browsing the web (even on Linux). The only downside would be the build quality. The keyboard is very light and feels a little on the cheap side. If you're planning on using it for heavy-duty gaming, don't be surprised if it doesn't go the distance when compared to more expensive models. For what it is, it's great, and I have no hesitation in recommending it, particularly to those with RSI or other issues.

I'm still not used to this keyboard but I'm noticing a difference with my hand and wrist fatigue. Bit clunky but I love it.

The Elevation is more than expected, however good product and delivery time.

"Its awesome once you get used to it however I got a faulty one"
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Been toying with the idea of getting one as I have had carpal tunnel surgery on both hands. And it really helps. Two stars off for poor QC as my one arrived faulty with a bad Space bar.. I noted that it was previously opened. I have never RMA'd something with Mighty Ape before and I hope they do not disappoint.

"Perfect keyboard for me"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I have this keyboard both at work and at home. My arms and wrists rest almost as right-angles and this keyboard stops the pain worsening in my wrists and elbows. It took three days to get used to using a split keyboard but I have had them for over three years now and could not revert back to using a traditional style keyboard.

"Goodbye RSI"

Purchased on Mighty Ape

Coming from a standard brown switch mechanical keyboard, my hands feel in a much more natural position. In the future a mechanical version would be awesome!

"Best keyboard ever"

"Wrist problems, no more"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

After working for several months in an office with a non-ergo keyboard/mouse I began to have severe wrist problems. I started using this keyboard and found the split keyboar fantastic as i'm now forced to move my hands more. Also the leather wrist pad is really soft and nice to rest your wrists on. Since using this in the office, i've decided to use one at home. Brilliant keyboard, well done microsoft.

This is great for writing long essays and/or spending large amounts of time, the keyboard is perfect for reducing wrist and hand cramps
