Kensington Pro Fit Ergo Wireless Keyboard: Affordable Ergonomic
It’s tough to make an ergonomic keyboard feel approachable.
MIKE EPSTEIN

The curved design and angled keys with a split down the middle can take a little time to get used to, and that is time most people don’t want to give up. Kensington’s latest ergonomic board, the Pro Fit Ergo Wireless, can’t eliminate that hesitation, but it seeks to ease it by making it as affordable as possible. In some ways, the Pro Fit Ergo goes toe-to-toe with more expensive ergonomic keyboards, such as the Logitech Ergo K860. In other ways, including basic build quality, it simply can’t keep up. The Pro Fit Ergo is a solid way to dip your toe in and experiment with a curved ergonomic keyboard without dropping too much cash, but it lacks the comfortable typing feel of its more costly competitors.

Available in black or gray, the Kensington Pro Fit Ergo Wireless is a competent keyboard elevated by a solid ergonomic design. The full-size keyboard has a curved chassis with the primary keyboard layout split in half, separated by a triangular gap. The design is made to reduce the stress of typing on your body: Splitting the keys and tilting them away from the center reduces your need to pinch your shoulder blades to push your arms directly in front of you to type. The curved body also eases the need to twist your wrists so your hands line up with flat keys.
