    Is it really ergonomic? I want something like this but not sure if it really works.

      Yeah I use the black version of this at work 8 hours a day and have for a few years now. I figure anything helps.

      The form factor of this ergonomic keyboard has not changed for over 20 years. Only minor tweaks and build material. Logitech recently released a new keyboard in this form factor and iirc, they had some write-up saying this form factor being the most ergonomic in a bunch of studies. So it's safe to say it works.

      The only annoyance I have to say with this keyboard is that it can only connect to one device at a time. So, keep that in mind if you were planning to have it paired to more than 1 device.

          You won't regret it

          It takes about a week to get used to

          I used to get pain in my forearms before using these

      They are great after you get used to them. I type much faster on them, just look at my comment count…

      This is the one I use…

      You can also program the top row of keys for things like auto-bold…

        Lol, never know auto-bold exists as a function, it only happens erroneously when my keyboard hiccups. Thanks for the testimony jv, you’re a legend ;)

    I've been using this keyboard nfor 7 years, I'm on my second as my first one became a bit worn, I couldn't go back to another type of keyboard

    This keyboard was much better than a standard keyboard but personally wasn't enough for me with pretty bad RSI problems. I think it's a good option for early prevention and maybe mild pain but if you're already suffering from RSI problems I would recommend going for a fully split keyboard.

    I have one at home, and one for work. It's annoying at first, but I find it good. Used this design (but my number pad is seperate) for 5+ yrs

    Does anyone know if this works with Linux? Have been tempted by Microsoft keyboards but not sure if they would work with Ubuntu.

    •  

      It's a USB keyboard, so it'll work with anything you can think of. Brand never matters

      •  

        This is actually a Bluetooth keyboard. As long as Linux can pair to it, it should work.

    You can get the sculpt with a mouse for only $20 more https://www.amazon.com.au/dp/B075FG4TW6/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_g...
