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:
That Advantage Pro looks pretty intimidating.
I think I would have trouble with the 2-piece keyboards. How do you keep them in place?
Hmm, for these keyboards, a separate 10-key pad would be needed.
Now the search for a decent 10-key pad. The ones that I have are "tolerable" membrane keys that I use when I take my laptop on the road.
Looks like I'm also going to have to upgrade my KVM switch to a USB KVM switch.
