As a touch typist (I type by feeling the keyboard keys and not needing to look), it's important that I can type quickly and comfortably. For this, I need a good comfy keyboard and maybe a good wrist rest. I decided on the Microsoft Ergonomic Keyboard 4000, which cost me around £45 at the time (around £30 on Amazon today). It's a USB (wired) keyboard with a very unusual shape, designed to make typing feel comfortable and natural for the touch typist. Good ergonomics is extremely important along with best practices to avoid permanent injuries from sitting at the computer over extended periods of time. Main problem when it comes to using a keyboard is the ... Read the complete review

Being a computer programmer (ActionScript 3), I clock up a serious number of hours sat in front of a computer hammering away at small plastic keys (hell I'm even doing it now!), I used to suffer from acute wrist pain with normal "flat" keyboards after long coding sessions and I was worried that the first stages of RSI were kicking in. As a result, I invested the time to retrain myself to use the Microsoft Ergo 4000 and I have never looked back. The first thing that people notice about this keyboard is the back-to-front design - the palm rest under the space bar is actually the highest point of the board with the keys sloping downwards - this forces ...

The Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 is an excellent all-around ergonomic keyboard that has served me well. I have RSI which means that comfort and ergonomics are vital to me, but I would go as far to recommend this keyboard to anyone, not just sufferers of repetitive strain injury. Fair enough, the first reaction you will probably get from most people when they see and try to use your keyboard is, 'WHAT THE...' (I know I did.) After all, it is unusually high raised up with a bizarre upwards curve shape, as well as the main key section split into two. This however, is what makes it so comfortable to use and is surprisingly easy to get used to. ... Read the complete review

I bought this keyboard about a year ago now after using one at work and loving the feel, But the biggest plus by far is being able to type for moderate to long periods without wrist strain or being uncomfortable in the forearm. The keyboard comes plug and play, just literally plug it into your pc via USB slot and away you go it will self install, mine also came with an installation CD. This keyboard is pretty big as far as keyboards go so will take up quite a bit of desk space what with the wrist rest attached to it as well, the keyboard slightly slants up towards the centre making your wrists sit at a more comfortable angle there is also a gap in ...

This keyboard seems to fix problems you never even knew existed. For example the height of the keyboard is slightly raised in the middle. This makes it feel much more natural when typing as you have different length fingers it makes sense for the keyboard to be shaped to account for this so the hand falls more naturally on the the keys. It may not seem like much of a problem but you appreciate it when you have it. I use this keyboard at home but at work I have a normal flat keyboard, and so I really notice the difference between the two. At first it felt weird typing on this keyboard but its to be expected, not being used to the different shape of the design. ... Read the complete review
