This is nice keyboard with an excellent feel, and that's the most important thing. But there are a few negatives. Firstly, some of the keys (eg, the Ctrl, Alt and space bar) are of a different shape and size to standard keyboards. Although this improves aesthetics, it does little for ergonomics. It makes some key combinations akward and your fingers will have to adopt slightly new positions to what they're used to while typing. Also, the slope of the keyboard is different to others, ie it seems flatter and needs to be sloping slightly more towards you. The shortcut keys are useful if you want them but there's no one-touch button for turning off the PC, like my old and inferior keyboard had. You'd think they'd include this as one off the functions you can assign a button to. But if you use just one keyboard then you will quickly get used to the differences.
