Perfection in miniture and RSI's downfall,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)

Wow, where do I begin.
The first thing thats hits you is how good it looks. Sleek and efficient. Several people in the office have already said how goos it looks and it was only delivered 3 hours ago!
Another thing I love is its size and simplicity. I've bought this to use in work. I have RSI quite badly in my right thumb. My hands are frequently aching at the end of the day. I found having a mouse in the standard position next to my keyboard pushed my arm out too far - that was the assessment of occupational health. So I have a separate number pad on the left and the small keyboard of the ARC in the middle which means I've been able to ove my mouse into the correct position. I can feel the relief already. Also the keys are slightly smaller and closer together so my fingers don't have to stretch as far. Great as I have small hands but not so small that someone with bigger hands would struggle. There are gaps between the keys that stop you hitting the next key by accident - nice design feature.
The keys have a nice firm feeling and generally a quality feel.
The curser keys being all in one takes all of 5 seconds to get used to especially if you've ever had a mobile with this feature.
Overall this a great keyboard and for the price incredible value.
