I am not aware of any Topre ergonomic keyboards. The only Topre keyboards I am aware of are the Real Force and HHKB, which I would not classify as Ergonomic. Even if certain Real force keyboards do have "ergonomically" weighted keys, I am more inclined to believe that this is just a marketing strategy. I own one of these keyboards, and its "ergonomic" feats are greatly shadowed by a real ergonomic keyboard such as the Microsoft Natural 4000 Keyboard (which I also own). —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 17:49, 26 February 2011 (UTC)
Why are there no mentions of Kinesis and Maltron keyboards? They are as ergonomic as a keyboard with keys can be. Mentioning Datahand products would also be nice. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 16:19, 8 January 2011 (UTC)
I would suggest to rewrite that section. It is full of "may" / "may not" statements that are not backed by any data. A dubious writeup by Jess Johnson is used to back up some claims, even though that writeup doesn't quote any scientific.
Statements like "Ergonomic keyboards may take practice to get used to, and may permanently reduce typing speed." should not be there, as
- virtually any keyboard may take practice to get used to (try to use a different laptop),
- where is any data that supports typing speed reduction?
Same for the next statement about taking more space - it applies to any bigger keyboard, nothing to do with an ergonomic one (remember, there are full size keyboards with a set of numeric keys out there, aren't those big ones?).
I am using various 'ergonomic' keyboards for the past about 15 years. I am not connected to any keyboard manufacturer. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 00:14, 25 May 2011 (UTC)
"... forcing the mouse to be farther away ..." Some ergonomic keyboards (eg Maltron) have the trackball mounted in between the separate halves of the split keyboard, and they are the same size as those keyboards with no inbuilt trackball.
I've removed the text about the Diernisse keyboard. Wikipedia is not for self-promotion, and the two editors who added the text clearly have some conflict of interest. LDiernisse (talk · contribs) is almost certainly the son mentioned in the removed text. 04:10, 9 May 2015 (UTC)
