Ergonomic Keyboard Reviews

Whether you like ergonomic keyboard mostly depends on whether you touch type. (Most people, even programers, do not touch type.) [see Typing Habits, Repetitive Strain Injury โŒจ] [see Touch-Typing, a Relic of Keyboard Design?]

However, if you work professionally as a programer, writer, or any job with intensive computer use, you may develope hand pain. This is when, most people start to look for ergonomic keyboards. (it is how i started to use ergonomic keyboard in 2005, after 15 years of using normal keyboards. My first ergo is the popular Microsoft Natural keyboard. )

Since 2005, i had mild cases of Repetitive Strain Injury about every 3 years. [see Xah Lee, Typing Experience and Repetitive Strain Injury] Here's my study of ergonomic keyboards. Analysis of their design with respect to hand health, and efficiency of input , and some are hands-on review. I hope it helps you avoid Repetitive Strain Injury.
