Hi!
I want to purchase a wired ergonomic keyboard that is compatible with Windows 8. 
Would like some suggestions and feedback as to how satisfied/or not with using one...thanks!

Edit: Moved topic from Windows 8 to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

I don't have windows 8 nor use an ergonomic keyboard. But here is a new product designed for Windows 8 and by Microsoft.

Microsoft Sculpt Comfort Keyboard

I have given up on getting a wired keyboard as they are not compatible from what I research to Windows 8, only wireless.  The one you mention is really what I need....

Will check this one out further...thank you...Kislanya;)

I just realized I originally posted in the wrong forum;) sorry about that.

 

Anyway I purchased a

  Logitech Wireless Wave Combo MK550

 

from Dell as I was able to get a nice military discount from them.  It's very similar in appearance and options to the Microsoft Sculpt..

 

I spend a lot of time researching geneaology and typing, my hands/arms are bothering me.  Sure hope the ergonomics of this new one will help relieve that.

Will definitely come back and give my review of how it handles plus any improvements in the discomfort....thanks!

The Logitech Wireless Wave Combo MK550 is absolutely terrific!  Aside from the super quick ship from Dell(4 days), the keyboard is the answer to my issues with aching wrists and fingers.  My palms rest very comfortably on the soft raised pads and the curved wave keyboard allows my fingers to access the keys without strain....plus increases my typing speed. 

 

There are a number of super nice keys to save time in operations overall.  Wireless is wonderful, the receiver works clean, tiny and can use multiple devices at the same time.  I like the zoom in/out key in particular that integrates nicely now with Windows and btw, this keyboard is compatible with Windows8.  The F keys can be re-set to access your email, word, browsing, im and 3 keys left for you to use at fave sites.  In my case that would be FB and Ebay;)

 

Easy setup with disc and few pages in the manual.

P.S. works beautifully while sitting in bed across the room....definitely a plus right there.
