Pro Cushioned palm rest
Thanks to the scissor-switches used (same switch used in many laptops), this keyboard is very quiet when typing.
Pro Low impact keys
Pro Separate number pad
Pro Wireless means cleaner look and flexible use
This keyboard connects to your computer or laptop wirelessly. This offers many benefits:
• Clean look (no cables to get tangled or droop around your desk)
• Flexible use (range is much longer than a wired connection so you have the flexibility to move the keyboard around)
• Doesn't require ports (especially if you have a laptop, the number of ports are limited. A wireless keyboard doesn't require a port, which frees an additional one up for another use).
Pro Split 3D layout for extremely comfortable typing
Our hands naturally rest angled when in front of us, and this keyboard has been built to conform to that instead of us awkwardly trying to straighten our hands on a regular flat keyboard which puts strain on our wrists. The split in the middle lets the keyboard be angled to best suit natural typing position.
The keyboard is also curved into a 3D dome shape, which also helps reduce strain and make typing more comfortable, because this design puts the keys where your fingers naturally rest.
Pro Switch for using function keys or media controls
Pro Optional detachable numberpad
The numberpad is detachable, which means that you can move it out of the way when you aren't using it. This allows for more ergonomic mouse use, as then your mouse hand isn't reaching way past the keyboard straining your shoulder (like in a ten-keyless design). However, if you are going to be number crunching, the numberpad is going to be very handy.
Con Small function keys not helpful for programmers
Con Key switches used aren't ideal for long typing sessions
The switches used are scissor switches, which are similar to the ones used in laptops. They provide shallow keystrokes which don't provide the same feedback as a mechanical keyboard. These keys need to be bottomed out in order to activate, which means some strain on your finger's joints as they are constantly hitting the bottom of the stroke.
Scissor-switches are also known to be less accurate than other keyboards. The key-tops are flat, and it's much easier for fingers to go wandering while mechanical and rubber dome keyboards often have recessed key-tops that help to keep your fingers in the right place and hit the keys dead-center every time.
Con Less durable than flat keyboards
Because of its shape and thin design, this keyboard will be easier to break in a backpack or bag than typical flat rectangular keyboards. This also makes it less portable unless you're very careful.
Con Arrows keys, page up, down, home, insert, end and delete squeezed together without a physical hint as separator from enter, right shift and right control
Con Strange feeling on pressing
Some keys (backspace, enter and other) are blocked on key down if not pressed perfectly perpendicular as they hit the shelf of the frame and do not go all the way down to register the stroke. Though this does atleast inform the user that the key press didn't go through as they can feel the key hitting the shelf.
