    gday all,

    I am in the market for an ergonomic keyboard
    You know the kind where the keys are split
    have done some looking online and prices are quite high
    No matter - I am prepared to pay for quality
    But when ordering i wont have a chance to try it out first

    Does anyone currently use an ergo board or want to reccomend one to me?
    I dont care either way about wireless
    Currently use a M$ 5 button corded mouse but happy to take a KB&M package so long as the mouse is 5 key or similar

    Fire away - tell me what u reckon
    Thanks

    actually, I'm looking for something similar as well. M$ makes one that is very common, so common in fact, that it is all I can find. I'm personally looking for one that is not made my M$. I know Logtech used to make some, but now all they have is one model that is wireless and comes with a mouse (2 options I don't want) and cost $100 US (too much)

    So, here's my similar question: an ergonomic keyboard (don't care about or want extas, preferably black) that is not made by M$ and available in the US

    Splash, you may actually like one of M$'s ergonomic keyboards since most ppl seem too. So you may want to try one out.

    :cheers:
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    stretchnow

    Here's a site i found with some details and pics
    It includes the Belkin and some others
    It's Australian so the prices will be half that in US$ i would guess

    I guess i was looking for some user feedback as to what is good
    I can try the M$ or whatever - just curious what others prefer

    Minibubba - if u havent used an ergo before it takes some getting used to but once u switch it's real hard to go back.

    thanks all

    I used a M$ one before for a few months, but i didn't like the shape/feel of it. I have used a logitech one once and it was noticably better, but I can't find one like it anymore. I've never tried a belkin one, since I didn't know one existed, so I'll have to try it out.

    but perhaps I should just stick with the strait one I have now, it might be a pain switching between and egronomic one and the the plain keyboards at school/work.

    yeah I reckon if you cant take your own to work (which would mean buying 2?) I'd stick with the conventional lay out or you will just get frustrated

    Cheers
