made my rsi worse,
This review is from: Microsoft Comfort Curve Keyboard 3000 - UK Layout (Accessory)
People love or hate particulr keyboards, so some might not agree with me.
I get rsi in my fingers and had discovered the Comfort Curve 2000. That had less of a curve on it and the keys were not raised up at at all. The keys had a very light action (the keyboard was badly made and so I got through 3.)
The 2000 has now been replaced by this one.
I found it awful. The keys seem smaller. The action is less light. I kept missing keys, but above all my RSI got MUCH worse.
So be wary.

I used the Microsoft Curve Comfort 2000 previously as well. Trying to find a replacement. Have you found a keyboard which helps your RSI?

A. Crabtree says:
I got the cheapest one in Maplin, a "Genius" k639. It doesn't have a curve & isn't sold as good for rsi.
Yet it has a very light action (perhaps it's its cheapness - £10) and it really does not seem to provoke my RSI. I find if a keyboard is wrong my fingers are aflame within a day, if not hours.
So it seems good enough.
My broken Comfort 2000 I resurrected by hitting it very hard - I read of someone else fixing theirs like that and it's working again!! So if you've still got it, whack it hard against something solid.

Thank you for getting back to me. I opened up my Comfort 2000 twice and then the keys worked fine for a while, then the 'n' and the ',' died again.
I bought an ergonomic Microsoft 3000 from PCworld which was so wierdly arced hurt my wrists again.
I have a padded mousepad and a gel pad for my wrist so I was looking at getting flat non 'ergonomic' one.
