Logitech Cordless Desktop Wave ReviewPosted on 2007-10-01 20:57:57 by Thomas De Maesschalck
As a keyboard snob, I have to preface this with a forewarning: I hate ergonomic keyboards. I find that they tweak my tendons (or don't tweak them enough) and muss with my muscle memory. They cause me to make typos and my fingers feel crammed together. I don't like scaled-down keyboards or keyboards that are missing keys due to the fact that most people don't use them. I use 'em all, even insert. (OK, maybe not scroll lock, but I'd use it in a pinch if I, er, knew what it did.) The truth is that the first keyboards and their mechanical predecessors needed little improvement. My grandmother, who shakes holding a pen, can still type faster than I can speak. Competitive typers all use straight keyboards, and rely on pianist's reflexes and ruler's-edge posture to crack out pages. The ergonomic multimedia keyboard does what an army of secretaries can't do: they make using a computer friendly.
