I made a quick run to the post office/general store today, as we were expecting packages. After picking up the package at the post office, the store owner came up to me, asking if I was expecting a package from somewhere “far off”. I wasn’t, but my daughter was. She wasn’t sure how it would arrive, as they wouldn’t accept a PO box, but delivery companies have a really hard time finding our physical address.
She brought over a box that had the strangest label on it. In the address area, it said it was to the post office. There was no name, but our phone number was in it. I figured it must be my daughter’s package and brought it home.
It wasn’t for my daughter.
It was for me!
My new keyboard has finally come in. The one we had to reorder because the first order was cancelled because they didn’t accept PO boxes.
I am now typing on it for the first time.
It is SO different!
This is my old keyboard.
As you can tell by the worn off keys, I’ve had it a long time!
I love that keyboard!
Unfortunately, some of the keys were getting janky, and it was getting time.
The ergonomic split keyboard is a must for me, but having a light up keyboard was also preferable, so that I could see it without having to shine my desk light on it, blinding myself every time I looked up.
This is the new one.
Nice, big legible letters on the keys. I love the lit keys too. The colours available are blue, red and green.
Now that I’ve typed with it for this long, I can already say.
I hate it!
The dimensions are different. Even though the keyboards are the same width, this one is narrower. The keys themselves are smaller. The difference is just enough to be a problem. My hands are cramping up, trying to type.
The worst is, the space bar is split. My thumb keeps hitting the end, and it doesn’t depress. To depress the space bar, I have to tuck my thumb under my hand. Which is causing it to start cramping even more.
My husband just came over to see how it was. When I told him, he offered me his. He says he can type on anything. His keyboard is basically my old one, except lit up and with one broken leg.
Oh, which reminds me. This keyboard doesn’t have legs at the back. The top of the keyboard is lower than the bottom, adding more stress to my wrists.
Excuse me while I end this post and switch keyboards!
