I know if you type the proper way you are not supposed to use a wrist rest. I've tried to adopt this technique but I can't get used to it.

Do you guys use a wrist rest? Do think its better/worse to use one vs not?

I have a wrist rest on my G15. It's bulky as hell but I find it comfortable.

Don't use one at the moment, though I'll likely buy one soon.

yeah at first it is really awkward. You get used to it then you can't go back to other keyboards

Didn't need one till now, but with the new keyboard I'll probably end up getting one.
