I purchased this keyboard when I had a badly strained tendon in my elbow and found I was unable to type for more than 5 minutes at a time without pain. Since I am a desk worker, this was a real problem. Fortunately, the ergonomic shape of this keyboard really worked - I was able to use it continuously without pain or exacerbating my injury. The fact that it proved to be sturdy and very high quality was an added bonus.I have only two complaints, and they are minor indeed. First, the USB wireless dongle doesn't match my existing wireless mouse, so I had to use up another USB port. Second, because the keys are in more widely spaced than with a standard keyboard, once you have your muscle memory trained to use this keyboard, trying to go back to a a standard keyboard causes frequent errors as your fingers no longer know where the keys are.Bottom line: I highly recommend this keyboard for anyone with any sort of ligament or repetitive stress issues.
Logitech has done their homework to make this keyboard ergonomically comfortable with plenty of adjustments available for the variety of human body types out there. After a couple of trial settings I have my keyboard set to my body type, chair height, etc. The palm rest is really comfortable and I find myself relaxed while typing instead of tensed up trying to hold my hands in position. With the split keyboard it helps me center myself on the screen so I do not end up offset to the keyboard which was a constant problem with my last keyboard. I use this keyboard in conjunction with the vertical MX logitech mouse so I have achieved ergonomic nirvana!
I'm used to the Microsoft Wireless Desktop 5000 keyboard and mouse package. Those are really great for the money but I wanted a keyboard wth a wider split and better angle. This keyboard is perfect so far.I wanted to note one thing about the "palm" or "wrist rest." It is true it is not removable. The plastic on the back of the keyboard is one solid piece that extends across the whole keyboard and wrist rest, however, many reivews have said that you can't, therefore, replace the wrist rest if hte fabric gets dirty or worn out. i don't think that is true. There are scrwes on the back side of the wrist rest and I belive you will be able to replace it, or recover it yourself if needed.One other thing. One reviewer mentoned this keyboard feels cheap. Not at all. It feels solid as you are typing on it. Feels like a very high quality piece of equipment.Will this keyboard make me more efficient, perhaps. The additional comfort will allow me to work longer with fewer breaks for sure.Highe recommended. Logitech Ergo K860.
I've been using the Microsoft ergonomic keyboard since 2002, and I've been looking for a change of pace for quite a while. Logitech's new series of peripherals (I have the creator mouse) have been very impressive, so after checking a few reviews of their new ergonomic keyboard I was willing to give it a try.Speaking as a heavy user who is making a switch from another keyboard brand, I was pleasantly surprised by how quickly I was able to make the switch. The biggest problem I had was hitting Insert when I wanted to hit Backspace - the placement of Backspace on the MS keyboard is further over to the right - but after a day or two I've gotten used to it. Everything else is great. The keys are low profile and feel great to use, its quieter than the MS keyboard, and the size is smaller which is a welcome relief after trying to wrangle my MS keyboard into my keyboard drawer. My only wishlist item is that I'd love the ability to reprogram more buttons than the F keys and other top line keys, but the fact the option is there at all is very handy.If you're coming from the Microsoft line of ergonomic keyboards and are concerned about adapting to a slightly new layout, I'd say go for it - I'm very pleased with my purchase and would have made the switch earlier if I had known.
I've been a professional writer/reporter for 10+ years and in that time I've used the Microsoft Ergonomic 4000 keyboard for almost all of that time. I'd wear the letters out fast or it would get laggy after a few years, and I'd just replace it for like $40 off every 3-5 years. The MS 4000 was fine, and had a great ergonomic left/wrist rest for me.My current MS 4000 started to falter and I couldn't find it being sold as easily, or for the same price (now about double the price) as I'd get them before. So, I figured I'd see if there were any highly rated ergo keyboards on to try.I got two, to see which one won...the wired Perixx 512 Ergo for $40 with good ratings. And this wireless Logitech Ergo K860 for $120. OR would I just go hunt down and pay the heavier price for the MS 4000 again.I got the Perixx first, hooked it up and hated it from the first moment of use. All the keys seemed too close together/it seemed small (even though it was about the same size as the MS 4000). It felt cheap. No raised keyboard upfront for support. I thought that I was maybe too used to the MS 4000 and nothing would feel right. I tried to power on with the Perixx for another hour to see if I'd get used to, but I just so disliked everything about the feel and use that I boxed it back up for return same day and hooked my failing MS 4000 back up.The next day this Logitech Ergo came in. I assumed I would also dislike it, that I was probably too used to the MS 4000 spacing, etc. I almost didn't even open it, I thought I might return it without wasting my time. But I reluctantly tried it and thank the Lord I did.The Logitech Ergo is just better than any keyboard I've ever laid fingers on from the word go. First, it's boxed like a luxury item. When you plug it in a nice demo comes up to walk you through basics. The look of a keyboard is like a luxury keyboard (which I never thought really existed, all keyboards look similar). The feel of the keys is way better than hammering away on heavy/flimsy plastic keys of the Perixx or MS 4000...and they keys look built to last/not wear off the letters like the MS 4000. It's got good curves/wrist rest/ergonomic design...feels very natural.This Logitech Ergo Keyboard is a first class item...yes, it's 3x what I would normally pay for a keyboard -- but you get what you pay for.The Perixx felt/looked like a Kia.My MS 4000 was a trusty Hyundai...solid.This Logitech is like a Tesla/BMW of keyboards by comparison -- which I never imagined being excited about a keyboard or writing a glowing review.
