Interesting keyboards. I like some of the mechanical keyboards, but none have the ergo shape option.
I've gotten too used to using an ergo keyboard, that I won't use a straight keyboard if I have a choice.
Now you guys have me looking at keyboards.
I looked at the Happy Hacking keyboard, but I CANNOT give up the 10-key pad, to get a smaller keyboard. I use the keypad too much and just HATE to use the number row. Hey what do you expect from an accountant, I need the 10-key pad.
I had several of the big single unit ergo keyboards 10+ years ago but I ruined all of them by spilling drinks on them...they were just too big and I was too clumsy. The new Microsoft Ergo board is very nice.
If you want an ergo Star Trek style mechanical keyboard there is always the Advantage Pro which uses Cherry MX Brown mechanical switches (you will need a big desk though):
I am a CPA too though I haven't done accounting in a couple of years now but I found that I like a separate 10 key better than one attached to my keyboard as I like to be able to push one out of the way when I don't need it.
When I was working I used these in the office because they didn't make much noise and I could fit a notepad or calculator in the middle:
It was owing to Unicomp's history that I asked you compare it to your preferred Fujitsu. Thank you. By the by, your post stimulated me to purchase a second keyboard of choice for my office PC. The Logitech wireless illuminated K800 is for PC only and a far cry from your Happy Hacking Pro 2. However, the K800 is a graceful keyboard with a small footprint, the feel is addictive; and the illumination feature occasionally comes in handy.
Haha I am happy to be an enabler.
I like Logitech and Microsoft peripherals. Their designs are intelligent. I seem to rotate keyboards every few years on and off from mechanical...I am sure when I am bored with this one I will be back to one of their products or an Apple keyboard if they ever design a new one.
