I have to tell you, I have been on an ergonomic quest lately. My goal is to find the best quality ergonomic office equipment I can afford. The key word, of course, is “afford.” A few years ago, I bought the Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 and I absolutely love it.
Check this little guy out.
As you can see, it’s not particularly fancy, but the product does offer one feature that I use all the time. With this keyboard, I’m able to bookmark my top five favorite documents—this includes MS Word and Excel docs, as well as, internet URL’s—and I can open these documents with the push of a single button. I’m sure many other keyboards offer the same convenience, but to have this capability in an ergo keyboard is really awesome.
I’ve noticed, however, that my keys for the letters “E” and “R” are almost chipped away, and I’m sure it’s just a matter of time before some of the other letters chip off as well. Out of curiosity, I started looking for other ergonomic keyboards and sadly, the pickings are pretty darn slim? Granted, I know split-keyboards aren’t for everyone—especially my hubby who finds it very difficult to type on my keyboard—but surely other manufacturers offer quality competitive products. So now this whole situation has me wondering. Have people moved away from using ergonomic keyboards? Have any of you ever tried one?
