PROS

  • Thin profile matches any current RollerMouse model without the necessity for RollerMouse "lifters."
  • Slight built-in negative tilt helps keep typing hands in a more restful posture.
  • Dual-level tilt feet can neutralize negative tilt if desired, or create slight positive tilt instead.
  • Wireless convenience.
  • Durable and attractive chassis includes holder for wireless receiver - great for on the go.

CONS

  • F-key row defaults to media keys, with a special function key required to hit F1-F12. This could be a serious issue for developers.
  • Chiclet keys are not generally considered the best action for ergonomic purposes.
  • No special shape or adjustability other than tilt for typing position.

Our Bottom Line Verdict

Works well as a matching keyboard for Contour's RollerMouse. Not especially helpful for ergonomics in any other sense but negative tilt, and not recommended for developers due to the way the F-key row is implemented.
