This keyboard is not excessively thick or wide for a split keyboard design and will fit in my adjustable keyboard tray. It has hot keys for email, web, search, and volume. The keys do not make a lot of noise and have a nice touch.

Great keyboard for medical transcription
I am a medical transcriptionist and type several hours a day. My laptop keyboard was causing my thumb and wrist to be strained and hurt. I love this ergonomic keyboard. It feels more natural for the way your hands are meant to be positioned while typing. It has relieved my thumb and wrist problems. It is a great keyboard for the price and even has a mute button and volume controls at the top. I am very glad I purchased it.
Best keyboard I've ever used.
The keys are spaced evenly and are not too close together or too far apart. The keys are easy to press. This is a keyboard that will hold up, as I had an older model before and it was still working, just not compatible with new Windows programs. I like the fact that on the F and J keys there is a sort of lip so that you can keep your fingers in the correct position without looking.
I ordered this keyboard after breaking my wrist and having pain trying to use a regular keyboard. This one was great and I am exceedingly pleased with it. Only two things have caused me some slowdown - B being only on the left side. I am used to hitting it with my right hand. Also, the number 6. I reach for it with my right hand and it isn't there. I think it would be helpful if those two were on both keyboards since I was taught to use the right fingers to reach those keys. Others may be in the habit of hitting them with the other finger. I am slowly getting used to the difference. The comfort for my wrists far outweights the other difficulty.
The Best Keyboard; Fellowes Split Design Ergonomic
This is the best keyboard I have ever used. I used ergonomic Adesso Keyboards in the past; but they did not last (I went through three of them; one each year.) So I had been using unergonomic keyboards these last few years after the Adesso. I find this Fellows Split Design keyboard fits my large hands well. I don't use the key pad on the right end of the keyboard; but I do use the arrow and delete buttons located there. I type much faster with this keyboard than the standard straight flat keyboards which came with my Mac and PC. I prefer to use this keyboard for everything. It is easy to pull out the USB jack and put it into the other computer as needed. It is just so much easier. I had just bought an inexpensive flat keyboard before I decided to try this one out. It is really a positive experience to type with the Fellowes Split Design in contrast to the discomfort of the regular unergonomic keyboards. This keyboard comes with some extra function buttons which I have not used. I almost bought another Adesso; cause they were comfortable to use; just did not last with daily use. I like the Fellowes Split Design keyboard the most; best I have ever used. I don't mind using the mouse with this keyboard.
BETTER BUT NOT GREAT
i have used Fellowes in the past. The smaller, cheaper ergonomic ones are not to my liking. Some reason they can't make the slightly larger keyboard affordable? Why is it twice the price? RIDICULOUS. I wearied of the Microsoft board wearing out so fast AND the "B" seeming to work one-third of the time (both well known issues), and the space bar wearing out very rapidly. Don't get me wrong, this Fellowes board IS an improvement over microsoft's garbage, but just a few minor changes and it would be a STELLAR board. on the right, the button between the CTRL and windows key, it needs to go. I reach for CTRL and keep hitting it. The space bar is a bit stiff. I'm hopeful it will break in and loosen up. I have to go back and re-strike the space bar because it's stiff. Also, the ALT key on the left hand side would be better if it were moved to the right a bit. It's a stretch reaching back and under to hit it. Height adjusters should be present front and back. I would rather have them in the back than the front. Fellowes? you fellows got it backwards here. Lastly, the home, end, delete, page up and down and insert keys, that layout is annoying, as well as the arrow keys. If you want loyal customers, put the keys where the customer is used to them being. I think I can guarantee you'd have an immensely loyal following if you fix these issues. All that being said, let me repeat, Fellowes boards have a reputation for longevity. This SEEMS to have the same quality they have always had, but, of course, only time will tell. if you are looking for a cost-effective alternative to the CHEAP boards by Microsoft and other vendors that wear out in a year, this board is certainly worth a look. I think next time, I'll take a crowbar to my wallet and spend the extra for the bigger keyboard At least it has a better layout
Excellent for the money!
I Haven't used this keyboard very long but it does everything I need it too and was a wonderful price. The only problem I've found is the 1/! key starting sticking, today. I popped it off to see if something got underneath it and it didn't see anything. I put the key back on and so far it seems to work again. Other than this one thing I am very happy!! One of the best features is that it has a wonderful feel. It's easy to find the home keys in the dark without looking and it's very quiet when you press the keys. I haven't set up the hot keys but it looks like most of them do what they should as soon as you plug it in. I feel like this was a very good buy!
The keyboard design is what I was looking for
I very much liked my Microsoft ergonomic keyboard 7000. When it stopped working, I looked for a replacement with an almost identical layout (you can never find an exact replica when a company ends production of the original item). The Fellowes Split Design Keyboard comes about as close as I could hope for. I would have given it 5 stars, but it is not nearly as heavy as the 7000, with the result it moves around on the keyboard tray.
