I’ve been using the standard Dell keyboard for several years. After reading TheWireCutters review of the Microsoft Ergonomic Keyboard I decided to purchase one. At first, it was hard to type because I was accustomed to the straight and flat Dell keyboard. The gap in the middle and the different key sizes have taken some time to get used to. I’ve almost had to relearn how to type.
- Small form factor
- Great design and attention to detail
- 10 key is separated
- Learning curve if first time using ergonomic keyboard
- Function keys are harder to press then the other keys
Overall the position of your hands feel much better and if you have ever had wrist, forearm, or shoulder pain, then an ergonomic keyboard would most likely help.

One thought to “Ergonomic Keyboard”
I have this same keyboard for almost 10 months now. I absolutely love it. I no longer have wrist or shoulder pain after typing all day. The batteries seem to last a long time too, I’m still on my first set. I paired the keyboard with the Logitech M570 Wireless Trackball and have seen great improvement in my daily grind.
