This review is from: Perixx PERIBOARD-512B, Ergonomic Split Keyboard - Black - Wired USB Interface - Natural Ergonomic Design - Recommended with Repetitive Strain Injuries RSI User - US English Layout
Pros: Board "split" at a more natural angle than the Microsoft 4000 series.
Complete set of CTRL / ALT / WIN / MENU keys on BOTH sides.
Encourages proper, "palms off the desk" typing style.
Cons: None for me, but see below.
Other Thoughts: I got this one at work, and have a Microsoft 4000 at home.
If you are a "keep the wrists high and palms off the desk" typist, you will love this one. If you're a "palms on rest", those "high" CTRL, ALT, WIN, MENU keys will cause problems. This board was designed to encourage the proper typing stance. That bottom row reflects that.
Possible CON: The Insert - PgDn keys are grouped 2x3 instead of 3x2, and the Arrow keys are 1/2/1 instead of 1x3, so that's a little awkward at first. However, in my opinion, the gain in desktop area makes this a wash. Your mileage may vary.
Pros: Excellent value for the cost.
No dead / "stuck" pixels.
No noticeable variation in edge to edge sharpness / color!
Cons: Based on price and specs: NONE!
Other Thoughts: The menu buttons take a little getting used to, but the buttons are exactly where the pointers indicate. I've been adjusting it on the fly for late night (i.e. DARK) sessions. Buttons are easy to use, and out of the sight of rugrats.
For the price and specs, I knew I was not getting "top of the line", but I feel I've stumbled into "hugely awesome goodness"!
The "blur" on high speed turns / moves is noticeable, but not annoying. After all, this is NOT a 1ms monitor, so that's not a con, just what it is.
Still very, very happy with this purchase!
Pros: More than I expected. I have no dead pixels, no noticeable variation in edge to edge sharpness / color temp.
I like the unobtrusive power button. It glows blue/amber, but it's not obnoxiously bright.
Value for cost makes this a 5 star.
Cons: Based on the price and specs: NONE!
Other Thoughts: I've used LCD monitors at work for years, and finally replaced the venerable 19" NEC CRT.
As this is not "top of the line", I was not expecting hugely awesome goodness ... but I got it anyway!
The adjustment controls takes a little time to get used to, but the buttons are EXACTLY where the pointers indicate, and do what they are supposed to.
The "ghosting" with quick rotation is noticeable, but better than I expected.
