Bij 3D Unlimited kun je vandaag een review vinden van het ergonomisch gevormde Microsoft Natural Keyboard Pro, dat net als vele andere modellen ook over een aantal Hot Keys beschikt. Hieronder wat meer info:
The first and foremost feature of this keyboard is that it has the implemented style of ergonomics in the main body of the keyboard. Lately everyone and their dog are making ergonomic keyboards for the home user market. Most of these are pretty standard as in the how the keys are laid out for each hand and the size of most of the buttons. The Natural Keyboard Pro is no different. The key style takes a couple of days to get use to and you wonít be able to type as fast compared to the old straight style. However, your wrists wonít hurt as much and will reduce the risk of carpal tunnel syndrome.
This board also incorporates 2 USB Ports, which are located at the back of the keyboard for devices like a mouse or other device that uses less then 100mA. However, they require taking up one of your USB ports on the motherboard or USB hub before you can use them. Also a USB Internet camera wonít work because they require more than 100mAís. Now lets take a look at all those blue buttons above the function keys and 10-key pad. Well 16 out of the 19 are already pre-defined keys and so you canít change them no matter what. Of those 16, 7 are dedicated to Internet browser functions such as: Back, Forward, Stop, Refresh, Search, Favorites and Web/Home. Another 8 are for media type functions such as: Mute, Volume up / down, Play/Pause (one button), Stop, Prev Track, Next Track and Media. And lastly 3 are user defined and 1 Sleep button. On default the three user defined buttons access My Computer, the Calculator and your default E-mail program.
