    This keyboard has been mentioned BRIEFLY in other posts on this forum, but no real user experience has been discovered.

    I would like to hear from anyone actually using this keyboard and take advantagen of knowledge gained from real users.

    The keyboard is high-priced, but might be worth the extra $.

    One model, I believe has a footpad. That strikes me as odd, but maybe (again) I am missing something.

    The Internet offereings state that the keyboard is complete Mac compatible . . . . and that it has programmable keys.

    Please, if you are using that keyboard, either comment here or email me privately before I spend almost $300 for a product I don't fully understand.

    Thank, in advance, for your comments.
    Regards,
    L

    That is a seriously weird looking keyboard. But I never "got" ergonomic keyboards.

    yeah I know, It looks very interestingly fun! The only "ergonomic" key board i have used is the Windows "ergonomic" and now the Dell ones that come with the Optiplex......sad really, sad....

    I couldn't live without my comfortcurve keyboard even though it is an MS product. I would however, love to have one of the Kinesis ones. They look kind of silly but I bet they are great to type on.

    After reading the specs and looking at the details in many pictures (There is even a demo on YouTube) I am convinced that with a little practice this could be a dyn-o-myte keyboard.

    Nothing personal, but I am "over" ergo keyboards, and have been for a long time. But, you know, to each his/her own, I suppose.
