Good Keyboard, Takes time to get used to it
This review is from: A4-Tech Left-Handed Pro KBS-29 Natural "A"-Shaped Key Layout Wired Multimedia Keyboard w/ Numeric Keypad
Pros: Good keyboard, and the numeric keys on the left make it much easier for me
Cons: "Mushy" key feel (but like most keyboards today; not any worse than the MS keyboard I had). Light weight - tends to slide around the desk if I type too fast (for example, while playing games). They keys are also laid out in a "flat" arrangement, not like an ergonomic keyboard, and so I sometimes get pain in my wrist if I type for too long.
Other Thoughts: It takes some time to get used to this keyboard. Since the number keys are on the left, I have to move my arms more to the right to line up with the keys. I keep my mouse on the left, which pushes the keyboard more to the left. Since I don't have an option to always use a left handed keyboard, so I have to keep reminding myself to make sure I line up my fingers on the "home keys" before I start typing, otherwise, because of the offset, I end up typing gibberish. Overall, a good keyboard, at a good price point.
