Keyboards are really important to me and I’ve been recommending (and using) the same one for around the last ten years. Most recently I wrote New Keyboard Same as the Old Keyboard about the Microsoft Natural Ergo Keypad 4000. Heck, I’ve even written about What Happens When You Put a Keyboard in the Dishwasher? Today I’m going to write about a different keyboard. Yes, I’ll share links to Amazon where I can earn a pittance if you buy something. No, I haven’t gotten a free keyboard (or anything else).
Each time I’ve gone looking for a replacement, I just can’t find anything better. Heck, I own three of the Microsoft Natural Ergo Keypad 4000. It still provides a lot of bang for the buck.
But you may want to at least explore the Logitech Ergo K860 Wireless Ergonomic Keyboard. It is smaller and lighter and comes with a nice wrist rest. There are a couple of features missing though I admit I don’t use them often. Some will think being wireless is a plus and others will worry about having to change batteries from time to time. Personally I don’t mind a wired keyboard. The biggest hurdle for me is the price difference between this new Logitech model and my trusty old Microsoft model. For now, I’ll stick with what I have. But I’ll keep an eye on this one to see if the price makes it more tempting.
