Good keyboard, but with weaknesses

Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 Keyboard with cord black / silver (German keyboard layout, QWERTY) (Accessories)

Customer Review

First, first to prehistory:
For a few weeks I try to get used to my 10-finger writing with the NEO keyboard layout (similar to the Dvorak layout). Before I had mastered only the error-prone one-finger system in Qwerty layout. The problem in my learning curve has always been that it is just too much a creature of habit and always fall into old bad habits. For this reason I decided to buy a split keyboard to me to impose itself the use of a 10-finger system.
Now I have decided to use this keyboard and gained me today, although I am far from being a fan of Microsoft products.
The appearance of the keyboard is really great, because you can not complain. Especially the palm rest makes quite what her. The keys have a pleasant pressure point, and I are also wonderfully quiet. Only the multimedia keys are a bit lapprig (especially Volume + wobbles like a cow's tail), which is not all too much bother me. The build quality is, apart from the multimedia keys, very good. Speaking of multimedia buttons: on Linux, which is my main operating system, not all return a code. This is a little annoying, but it was almost to be expected.
The angle between the keyboard halves could also be a bit bigger, you have to already hold in an "ergonomic keyboard". So whether the goal of better ergonomics is achieved, so be times undecided and may be doubted.
Another shortcoming: Where is bitteschön USB PS2 adapter go? So just another USB port is again plugged because my USB-PS2 adapter from Logitech can not operate with this keyboard, all Microsoft-like flat ...
All in all, therefore, it must be noted the following:
That's a really good keyboard, but has some weaknesses. In the small area of ​​ergonomic keyboards you but unfortunately not much choice. For beginners in the 10-finger-spelling or people who have not worked with a split keyboard, it is highly recommended, because the learning curve is not really high.
Who is looking out for medical reasons, an ergonomic keyboard, could be really very disappointed, then was more caution advised.
Positives:
- Optics
- Pressure point and processing the normal key
- Good entry keyboard in split keyboards
Negatives:
- Ergonomics not really guaranteed
- Multimedia buttons something lapprig
- No PS2 adapter
