Hey, any chance you could go into a little bit more detail? Cheers!

Same question to you too, any chance you could give a bit more detail? Thanks

Comfortable to use for lots of writing and just works - any particular features you want to know about?

Oh good, so there wasn't really an adjustment period or anything? I bought a keyboard years ago that had a strip of function keys to the left and it really threw my muscle memory. No questions in particular but thanks for the response

So I have been using one for quite a while at this point - took me about a week to adjust I think.

I used one of these at work for 3 years, I never suffered from RSI after that again. I moved jobs and I couldn't take it with me unfortunately and am having to make do with a cheaper version (still Microsoft) with proper raised keys which isn't as good. It took maybe a few weeks to get back to being able to touch type again with this keyboard. It is a very good keyboard and mouse. It's a shame they don't do a wired version of it. I couldn't fathom whether the occasional lag I experienced was the problem of the keyboard or the PC so watch out for that if you get it.

Thank you, that's very helpful
Just to add my two cents on this, I've got one for work as well, and it's the best keyboard I've ever used, honestly. There is a small adjustment period (personally, the larger size of the T/Y keys made me "miss" a key every now and then), but I'd also say in about a week I was typing quite fast and not getting a tingle in my little finger anymore (early sign of RSI).
anyone using this with a Mac?

Quiet, but just enough click, super comfy, great range as I have my pc in the lounge. The mouse and num pad are a bit weird but its the keyboard that you want.

Hard to describe really, it helps me to type quickly and I am on it for 9 hours a day, no pain,no strain.
I've used one of these keyboards for years as I like the short travel design and there's not many good keyboards with that type of keys. I wasn't wanting the split keyboard and was concerned it would take a while to get used to but it didn't take that long and it's improved my typing on other keyboards as it forced me to type properly keeping each hand on its own side.

Hi. I have it hooked up to an old Mac Mini as well as a Windows machine. It works fine on both. (Using KVM / USB Switch if you're wondering)

Windows Key acts as the Command key.

I paid £85 a few weeks ago from CCL on Amazon (no mouse version). Now they've dropped it to £72. Now Amazon are doing it for £68 with the mouse... Good deal.

On the bright side, I'm claiming this back on expenses due to the WFH thingy. I'm curious about the mouse. Any good?

The mouse is good, I don’t use it as I found the Evoluent vertical mouse removed my RSI but it’s what you’d expect from a MS mouse in this range, solid and comfortable.
Keyboard is awesome, I’d love to buy one for work but can’t afford atm.
Cheers. I have a cheap and cheerful vertical mouse. Didn't really get on with it so been using a Logitech M705. Might give the vertical one another shot.

The Microsoft ergonomic keyboard is also very good for RSI. Wired and much cheaper if you're still having to go into the office and using a regular keyboard.
Just received mine and it's lovely I need to get my right hand in the right place though but once I get used to it I'm sure I'll hate using a normal keyboard again! I remember having the old Microsoft white natural keyboard back in the late 90's and got quite attached to that too
You really need to sit in front of it too or your fingers get very confused
