    I'm thinking of buying one of these.

    My wrists and shoulders are killing me after spending several full days behind a computer. I've read that this might help.

    Any of you got experience with keyboards like this?

    I do not, but I know having a mouse wrist cushion and a keyboard wrist cushion has made life much better for me...

    You shod be figuring out how to open you office window instead. It'll come in handy when depression sets in.

    I can do 35 WPM using only 3 fingers. That keyboard is a scam

    its a proven fact that it is faster to only use the keyboard for everything and not use a mouse at all

    I have a black version of the original Microsoft Natural keyboard and have been using this style of keyboard for over 10 years now. I like it a lot but realize it's not for everyone. If you have never used one before then it would take you a while to get used to it but after a while you would really like it. I can type about 80-90 WPM with it.

    If a keyboard is kicking your ass, consider suicide

    Whoa. You think it'll get that bad?

    Won't have much use anyway, we're on the 1st floor.

    Yeah, I'm gonna buy one. It's only 50 bucks so what the hell.

    :jj:
