Where can I find an ergonomic mechanical keyboard that doesn't look like a star-trek prop?

More akin to a microsoft natural as opposed to the other mechs with epic gaps inbetween the seperated key pad areas?

I think those are the only kind available in the ergonomic variety. Is ergonomic a must?

Microsoft Natural keyboard shapes are imo the best I've ever used in terms of comfort as I dont have to bend my wrists outwards 45 degrees as I do with non ergonomic keyboards. It was the first type of keyboard I ever used and the only type I've ever spent money on.

It's not a must as much as it would be a huge bonus that would make me purchase one with that feature instantly over any other mech keyboard out there.

Why do they make them so outrageously separated like that though?

I find it strange that there are basically no ergonomically shaped mechs out there (apart from the star trek looking ones).

Guess I'll have to stay away from the mechs if I want to be comfortable mad.gif

I see. I've used them as well but I've found that if I sit back a bit further from my desk as to where I can extend my arms I don't have to bend my wrists as much. I am using an xArmor mech keyboard and I love it. It has the Cherry MX Brown switches which have the tactile feedback but not the click. If you got one with the Cherry MX Black switches, which has neither, it would also make it a little easier on your hands imo.
