The very beginning where he's clicking them slowly sounds about right (but like iandh said, the video is a tiny bit harsher than live), but once he starts moving around he keeps bottoming them out and that doesn't quite sound like normal typing. Maybe when you first get it and still aren't used to them yeah, but it's not normal.

I have really big hands and use palm grip so I have to find a pretty large mouse.
Have you tried the Ikari? It's the most comfortable mouse I've ever tried for a palm grip (and I have big hands too). The only quirk is that you should have only two fingers up top, not three like I like to use.

But yeah, my problem is that I like to use a fingertip grip so I need a mouse that's very short in the back and not too high (so it doesn't hit my hand when I pull it down with my fingers), but very wide so that my pinky doesn't hurt from holding it too long. Basically, if you put your hand on the home row, the distance between your pinky and thumb right there is how wide I need it.

Quick question for someone... I've been looking for a decent 10 key pad to go with my tenkeyless Filco keyboards. I'm left handed and like having it on the left side of the keyboard... I don't want to get one of the Filco ones because it has that double zero key on it. BUT I don't want to pay anymore than I would have to for the Filco one. It doesn't really matter what switches it has in it since my Filco keyboard is one of the B-stock ones. and the switches are kinda heavy on it anyway.

I think that about covers it for now...

Thanks RFJ.

Right now I am using a cheap inland one from micro center... it has the rubber dome switches and really sucks to use.... Even though I don't use the 10 key that much.



Edit----> ORDERED!

I could have sworn I saw a mechanical left handed one somewhere (0 on the right, +/Enter on the left) but I couldn't find it.

I think I saw the same thing that your thinking about on the Cherry web site a couple months ago.... I like the face that the tenkeyless takes up less real estate on my desk... I don't have all that much room to begin with. Its kinda cramped quarters in here with all the computers and such... I think I'm addicted to building and buying stuff.

I just picked up an new Nikon camera yesterday evening... the coolpix L100.. seems pretty decent so far. (Starting to go off topic...)

Thanks again on the link. I think I looked at those 10 keys before and didn't know if they would be any good.... since you recommended it, I think I will like it... I see your post on this thread a lot.

I had completely missed your question, sorry about that.

But that's a pretty good board. There are several other Kinesis models that would work too, and some really ugly Maltron boards. There's also the recently discontinued Kinesis Evolution, which you'd have to scour ebay and geekhack to get.

Out of those I guess have her pick the one she thinks looks the most comfortable.

I found the left handed mechanical keyboard...

Here


The enter key is to big and the backspace is too small... I like a smaller enter key and lager backspace...

Yeah I don't like that either. But I was just talking about the number pad being flipped around, so you could use your thumb on the 0 and pinky on the +/Enter like right handed people do.
