    "I've used other Microsoft ergonomic keyboards and loved them. When I needed one at work I decided to get the new one and must say its just as good if not better than their previous versions. The key spacing is great and the way your hands lay on the keyboard at an angle puts less stress on your wrists."

    "i do lot's of coding and transcription so carpel tunnel syndrome is a real thing for me. i got this as a gift, and i like the design but i just don't get the wireless craze. i've never had any problems with my mouse wire, and a wireless keyboard? i'd prefer the wired version."

    "At first glance, it looks like someone took a chainsaw to the middle of it and split it for you. You might think to yourself, "wow, now I can type out my report and have a boomerang". Unfortunately, you would be disappointed because this keyboard will not come back to you. However, it is a nice and functional keyboard that works well. You can twist it in different ways to help stretch out your wrists and this can really help with carpal tunnel. The price is insane for a keyboard, but so is the price for surgery on your wrists."

    "This type of keyboard would be a lifesaver for office workers like me. If you spend a lot of time at your computer, this would relieve some of the stress in your neck caused by typing all day. Even though the price is a little high, I would seriously consider purchasing this keyboard to save myself some neck and shoulder pain."

    "The site provides great info about the ergonomic keyboard and it generally fits the idea well, especially for a mobile user. Also provides a great video about functionality and ergonomics. The page itself is well designed and pleasing and should tell you much about the keyboard."

    "A friend had recommended I get an ergonomic keyboard since I spend so much time at my computer. The difference this has made for me is amazing. It was easy to remap the keys and is extremely comfortable to use. The setup was self explanatory and I had it running in minutes. "

    "I used to get the worst cramping in my hands and fingers whenever I was working or playing a game for a long period of time. This keyboard has really helped a lot, I hardly get cramps anymore. I love the wrist rest which takes so much pressure off of your hands and fingers. I also love the colors, it really is so beautiful."

    "You can hardly tell if the Optic Blue Switch is faster, too loud I even tested without my O rings mod. They sent the wrong extra keys I got 8 but I'm missing A&W switched with extra R&F. The keyboard is bigger which is nice but because of that, it's kind of odd to use the key puller tool. I give it one point for it's clean look and metallic plate. Overall I suggest you stick to traditional mechanical keyboards. Unless they have a quieter one with multimedia buttons & a dedicated led button so the keyboard doesn't pulse wend I don't type for few mins."

    "I've used this keyboard for a while and there are a list of pros and cons. First, it is back lit and that absolutely helps in the dark. However, the key caps are blank, so if you happen to wander off your row, it's not easy to get back and the back light becomes moderately useless. I am thinking about buying my own caps, which is an added expense. Know what you're getting into before you buy. A nice Corsair would be cheaper and have a better warranty anyway, including RGB lighting. This really isn't an eronomic option either and doesn't come with a wrist pad like a Corsair would."

    "Need a keyboard that places all the major navigation keys in easy to reach places for hours of keyboarding ? Need the numeric keypad to be for lefties ? Look no further, this is one of the best keyboard layouts I have ever seen and once you get used to it, you won't want to go back to the old standard keyboards ... especially if you're a leftie !"
