Question: Has anyone tried the Cherry Ergo Keyboard? I have had a trial assessment through PACT and didn’t notice the difference until I returned to a normal keyboard! Could you tell me a bit more about this? I will shortly be visited by the PACT people and I’m not sure what they can offer me, although one person I spoke to on the phone mentioned getting hold of a matron keyboard for a trial period. Is it anything similar to the Microsoft ‘ergonomic’ one?
Answer 1: I personally use a Maltron keyboard. It is an ergonomic keyboard which has actually been ‘split in half’. I find that without this keyboard I couldn’t work but having said that this is a personal opinion.
Answer 2: Can you tell us what sort of k/b this is please. is it one split through the alpha keys or with a sep number pad, and who stocks it? If it is a supplier you are allowed to use maybe we are too!
Answer 3: I visit website of Maltron keyboard. From the pictures it looks rather hi-tech! I think the web site has links to distributors who sell it in the UK.
Answer 4: The Maltron keyboard is split in half and is concave. I have details of their address and telephone number if anyone wants them.
Answer 5: Does anyone know the approximate cost of these ‘flash’ key-boards
Answer 6: Cherry keyboard approx. =A3140 plus =A330 for numeric pad
Maltron keyboard – starts at =A3375
