View Full Version : ergonomic keyboard advice
Oct 16, '10, 10:30 AM
So i spilled some coffee on my old keyboard and replaced it with a funky ergonomic kind.
I use my computer a good deal for typing and I'm really struggling with this. I'm bothered at how much of a hump this is for me. Is this something anybody else has dealt with? Do you get over it or should I just take it back to the store?

My advice? Take it back.
Take that advice however you'd like... but lemme give ya a bit more detail
before you decide....
I ruined my old keyboard with a liquid as well.
Like you, I also bought a new ergonomic keyboard...spent 60 bucks on it too.
I hated using it. It was so unfamilliar to type on....a few months later I spilled
the smallest amt. of ANOTHER liquid on THAT keboard and it broke. but that
was a blessing.
I went to STAPLES, bought a 15 dollar "logitech" keyboard and couldn't be
happier.... it's a meat & potatoes, familliar feeling keyboard arrangement...
and supposedly it's "spill-free".
Not only would I advise you to get this 15 dollar Logitech keyboard (or
something like it), but I'd be tempted to suggest to you to buy 5 of 'em
so you have enough decent regular keyboards to last you the rest of your
life no matter how you ruin any of 'em.
MAN...what a mistake it was to buy that ergonomic keyboard (for me anyway).

Take it back
If you're not comfortable with it and you use it it might create all kinds of nasty problems for you

yeah i gotta agree, take it back if you're not comfortable with it

Oh, I hate those keyboards. One time my keyboard at work broke and they tried replacing it with one of those ergonomic ones. I gave it a try for a few days, thinking I might get used to it. I hated it, many of the keys weren't in the places I was used to, it was like I had to relearn touch typing. Maybe if I gave it enough time I would have gotten used to it, but I didn't have the luxury of time because it was just slowing me down at work. So I complained and got a new normal keyboard.

Yeah, I tired one once and couldn't get used to it. Ditch it

i'm not liking the ratio of "couldn't get used to it" stories.
