Looking for wireless ergonomic keyboard

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm currently using the Microsoft ergonomic Wireless Natural Multimedia Keyboard for about the last 6 or 7 years.

I've loved this keyboard since I've had it and it still works great.

But I plan on building a new computer soon and figured I'd upgrade the keyboard as well.

I was going to get the microsoft wireless ergonomic keyboard 7000, but for some insane reason they are going for over $300+ on ebay

Microsoft has a newer wireless ergonomic keyboard out call the Sculpt and while it looks cool and can be had for $66 for just the keyboard or around $80 with the mouse as well, I'm not sure I'm totally in love with the new design and would almost prefer the 7000 versions still I think.

I've tried looking online without much success in trying to find another company that makes wireless ergonomic keyboards?

Does anyone know of any other contenders to Microsoft's line of wireless ergonomic keyboards?

It must be wireless & must be ergonomic. Back-lighting would be nice, but I wouldn't choose that over my first two requirements.

Looking at Logitechs line, I'm really surprised they don't have any type of ergonomic keyboard.

The closest things seems to be their Wave Keyboard: http://www.logitech.com/en-us/product/wireless-wave-combo-mk550?crid=27

Does the Wave offer any type of ergonomic similarity?

I do like how it's encrypted... and also not microsoft lol

Do wireless keyboards work/function better with bluetooth or RF?

Why not just keep it? Why upgrade it if you don't need to? That 7000 model is expensive because it's out of production. IMO not worth paying that much for for an old keyboard. There's always mechanical but you're looking for ergonomic as priority.
