I've been using ergonomic keyboards for ten years now.Used the Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic (terrible build quality, killed two within a few years), the Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 (cheap at $20 used but wobbly keys and has a number pad), and also a non-ergonomic Das Keyboard with mechanical keyswitches just to see the benefit of that approach.The Goldtouch reigns supreme above them all with excellent build quality, great keyswitch feel (seriously, mechanical keyswitches are absolutely not necessary to have a nice typing experience), endless adjustability, and all at a great price - $50 less than its main competitor the Kinesys Freestyle2 which looks & feels cheap by comparison with its sold-separately tenting kit.I would recommend this keyboard to absolutely anyone who is at all concerned with their ergonomic setup.The only complaints I have are the odd decision to sell Mac compatibility as a specific keyboard feature (seems odd in 2020 where cross-platform support is expected by default, especially for something as basic as a keyboard), and that the width & chunkiness of the keyboard means the greater the angle you tent it, the higher your hands have to go.The main drawback of this last point is that your mouse is then quite low by comparison, so there's really only a very limited range where your mouse & keyboard can both be used with straight wrists.I solved this by raising my mousepad with a book underneath.All in all a tremendous keyboard that I will be using far into the future.

I used to use the old Microsoft serpentine keyboard, until the newer ones started using terrible feeling keys.

This worked ok, as I was able to remove the tops of the two halves and take them outside to hit them with a sprayer I use to clean my pool filters-- the keys don't fall out and you don't have to take them off-- with the top removed it's all plastic so there's no electronics to worry about getting wet.I'm planning on buying a second one and retire the old one as a backup-- it still works well though some of the markings on the most often used keys are worn off-- that would probably be the only "con" I could think of, after a lot of use you'll wear some of the letters smooth.

But it's still holding up otherwise and going strong.I also have a Kinesis Freestyle for one of my other computers which is a decent keyboard as well, but the goldtouch is the better of the two IMHO.

The Goldtouch hinge between the two sides is much more bulletproof than the Freestyle-- the Freestyle hinge broke in a relatively short time, though it's not really a problem for me, I just ended up with two keyboards that move independently, one for each hand instead of one common keyboard with a hinge.I don't end up using the tilt-up feature, but I usually keep it adjusted at it's widest spread.

A computer keyboard is a typewriter-style device which uses an arrangement of buttons or keys to act as mechanical levers or electronic switches. Replacing early punched cards and paper tape technology, interaction via teleprinter-style keyboards have been the main input method for computers since the 1970s, supplemented by the computer mouse since the 1980s.

The usual price range for a computer keyboard is between $9.94 to $309.63.

Jane's Review: Should I buy this product?

Jane's Review

Yes! I recommend this computer keyboard based on its brand popularity. Let's go over the reasons why buying this computer keyboard now is a good idea, and also things to consider before you decide on this item.

1. Goldtouch is one of the best selling, well known computer keyboard brand!

Goldtouch is one of the best selling brands among other computer keyboard brands. I found some YouTube videos that talk about this product, which means this is a widely known product/brand. I have attached the videos above and links in the additional research section down below, so don't forget to watch and read those!

One thing to be careful about here is that I'm not verifying if this product's maker is a household name or not. This section is more focused on whether this is proven enough by its consumers, whether people actually love this product.

2. This computer keyboard has positive reviews on the internet

Some people have a great experience with a product, while some are unlucky and get a defected item and have to go through the whole process of returning them. Since people have different experiences about a product due to various reasons, don't read too much into one good or bad review. Reading multiple reviews with different ratings can help you picture how good/bad the product generally is.

This computer keyboard has positivereviews on the internet, and based on current trends, it's likely that people will like this computer keyboard more a week later. I summarized what fans and haters say about this product above in the good/ok/bad table, so don't forget to read those since they paint the whole picture! And of course, if you want to read more detailed reviews, many of them are on Amazon!See More Reviews on AmazonSee More Reviews on Amazon

3. The price might go up, so buy now if you need this!

image/svg+xml Highest Price Lowest Price $96.00 $65.64

Price is one of the most important factors in making a purchase decision. I analyzed the price of this product in four parts: its recent price change, when it was most expensive/cheapest, its price volatility, and a price prediction I made, just in case you want to wait.

First off, let's talk about its recent price change. The price of this product has not changed recently, which means that it has steady and healthy supply!

Next, we need to look at its highest price and lowest price. Historically, the highest price point for this computer keyboard was $96.00, and the lowest price point was $65.64. The current price is greater than it has ever been. If the best price is what you're looking for, this could be potentially be a bad time to purchase.

What about its availability and price volatility? This is another aspect we have to dig into before buying something. I haven't seen this product being unavailable since I started reviewing this product. So as far as the availability goes, this product is solid. If you plan to make a repeat purchase of this kind of item, this is your product! Based on past behavior, we don't expect the price to shift. The price could still change, but don't get your hopes up!

Considering all this, will the price go up or down in a week? Based on past price points, I expect the price to be $97.38 a week from now. It might be best to purchase as soon as possible before the price becomes too high.

4. Manufacturer has generally positive reviews on their other products

The maker of a product is another factor you want to definitely consider before you buy anything. What if there is a piece missing or there is some defect in the product? With anything you buy online, there is a small chance of this happening. But don't worry too much, because Amazon has an amazing 30-day refund policy (Amazon❤️). Still, you want to make sure that the manufacturer or the seller has been helpful in resolving this kind of problem and/or has been helpful to its customers about general product inquiries. The manufacturer of this product, Goldtouch, has generally positive reviews on the internet. It's generally a good sign if the manufacturer has good reviews overall. If your purchase decision heavily involves how well they make their products and treat their customers, and if you like this product, I'd go with this product!

5. There are other options you might want to check out

image/svg+xml Goldtouch Other similar brands: Razer Hermitshell Apple WASD Keyboards

I found 8 brands that have similar products like this one: Razer, Hermitshell, Apple, WASD Keyboards, HP, Verbatim, SANOXY, and JETech. 'If you're looking for a cheaper alternative, you might want to look at a similar product from Verbatim. If you're looking for a computer keyboard with best reviews, a product from Hermitshell gets the best score on the internet. If your primary concern is whether the product is popular and well known, a similar product from Apple I linked below is a better option. I linked all the similar products in the similar products section so please check them out! Or you can check other similar products on Amazon, too.
