After many problems using the 209 older version of this keyboard I reluctantly decided to try a newer model after speaking to The Keyboard Company. Whilst it may not be ergonomic enough for some people it works very well for me and has helped to prevent wrist problems from getting worse.

The reason for a change of model was the now famous repeating keys problem that the old model had. I have been using the new model for about three weeks now and not had a single problem with it. I am now able to write - which is what I do - without the frustration of constant corrections.

The Keyboard Company were very helpful on the phone.

Highly recommend this model.

I have had a Truly Ergonomic 209 keyboard for a couple of years now and I'm very fond of it. It took about a month to get to a point where I was typing without regular errors, but since then, my typing speed feels quicker than before and my wrists and fingers have felt so much better than before.

I bought this new model to complement my existing keyboard (one for the office, one for home).

As a bit of a warning to anyone who has also become accustomed to the layout of the 207209, the only issue I have with this newer model is that they have moved a few of the keys around into awkward positions (for me). For instance, as a programmer, I was fond of the tab key position in the centre block, as it's a key I use a lot. It's now moved to a small key in the corner, where I can't reach it easily and replaced by the minus key, which I don't use nearly as much. Similarly, the shift and ctrl keys have been switched. I'm not sure whether this was to make them more like normal qwerty keyboards, but I now find that my (fairly small for a man) hands are having to stretch awkwardly to use shift with the number keys using one hand. Maybe I need to teach myself to do shift-number with opposite hands?

I'm thinking I might make use of the online tool to remap my keyboard to the same positions as the 209, but to do that, I would also want to replace the key caps to match. I don't suppose it's possible to get hold of replacement key caps for these? Notably a tab from a 207209, as the other keys are more or less the same as most Cherry-compatible caps?
