I do not own one of these keyboards but to me this just looks like a rip off (albeit a rather good one) of the Apple Keyboard I am typing on at present.

If it is pretty much the same as the Apple Keyboard then I can thoroughly recommend it, the key spacing is ideal for typing accurately; the keys themselves are not very deep which suits me but I know many people who really don't like typing on a shallow keyboard.

I don't think ANYONE can advise you on your next keyboard (or mouse) - except to avoid this or that model because they are poorly made and fall apart. These are YOUR HIDs (human interface devices) and as such, become extensions of YOUR hands. Therefore, they must "feel" right in your hands, not my hands, or Fred's hands or Susan's. I suggest you visit your local computer store and touch and feel all the keyboards and select one that feels good to you. Try to position them the way you sit at your desk.
