good compact wireless ergo keyboard

Gonna buy this. Need wireless. No other good alternative. I need it for use with Microsoft Surface Pro.

The alternative is either keychron or niz plum. Keychron not too expensive but not ergo. Or i really want niz plum but too expensive. Plus, they not ergo.

Faak. My Gergo Keyboard broke. Now back to X-Bows Keyboard, for use when in bed typing on my Microsoft Surface Pro 4, 2015

gergo random type 2020-11-25

It happened about twice before, gergo would start to type random by itself. Unplug and replug solved the problem. Today it happened again. But i unplugged the keyboard side instead. After replug, it doesn't work. Repeat replug still the case. When holding a key on the right side, it would then type a string about 20 or so repetition of the key. And i realized, if i unplug the cable that connect them, the right side works fine. .

end of the ergonomic keyboard evolution

I think the ergonomic evolution, began in 2013 by Truly Ergonomic then Ergodox in DIY, with onset of 3d printing and mech keyswitch craze, is over. There is not much new that haven't been explored.
