What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Matias Ergo Pro Quiet PC Ergonomic Keyboard
  • I bought them mainly because of the quiet key feature so I can type without disturbing people nearby. These keyboards are great, and the split design is quite comfortable.
  • Each keypad is very comfortable and being able to adjust their position on the fly depending on how I'm sitting has already alleviated the constant neck strain.
  • Comfortable, tons of fancy functions. But, the quality of the keys is horrible.

What customers say about "Keys"
Matias Ergo Pro Quiet PC Ergonomic Keyboard
  • Great keyboard. Typing most of the day and it relieves the discomfort I felt from my wrists, shoulders, chest, and neck when using a ms natural keyboard.
  • I have a great deal of hand and wrist pain when I type all day long. A coworker told me about this new Matias low force keyboard that helped to eliminate their hand pain.
  • Proper F keys. I use these quite a bit as well, and while these are serviceable, I would have liked them to be full size.

What customers say about "Features"
Matias Ergo Pro Quiet PC Ergonomic Keyboard
  • Not only is the quality of the keyboard absolutely superb, but Matias customer service is fantastic.
  • The usb to micro usb connection that they provide with the keyboard is incorrectly angled.
Kinesis Freestyle2 Ergonomic Keyboard for PC
  • It can come completely apart and separate into 2 sections. I currently have the sections over 2 inches apart from each other.
  • Keyboard tray has an adjustable and cushiony wristpad along with a base that can tilt a number of different ways to provide varying degrees of tilt.
  • The "quick keys" on the left side are far more annoying than useful, unfortunately, and just slow me down.
