      Best keyboard ever, I have used this design for over 20 years and wouldn't think of using any other one. I am a professional writer so it is important that I have a keyboard that is kind to my wrists. Try it and you'll never go back to any other make!

          Comments about Fellowes Microban Split Design Keyboard:

          I've been on a search every now and then for a quiet ergo keyboard to replace my loud one. I recently saw the Fellowes ergo with Microban and the price was right and I ordered it and am so glad I did. The keys are just exactly what I was hoping for in terms of responsiveness with a quiet muffled sound. The Microban feature wasn't a necessity but was a nice bonus. I would give this keyboard a solid A- in performance only because it's not absolutely silent but will still give it 5 stars since I can't give it 4-3/4 :) Happy typing!

            Comments about Fellowes Microban Split Design Keyboard:

            This is my first split keyboard and I adjusted to it very quickly, and my wrists stopped hurting almost immediately-that is huge for me. My issue now is that the keys stop responding in the middle of typing. I believe the keyboard is less than 3 years old. I pick up the keyboard-maybe a half inch-and let it drop, and all the keys work again. I have had to do it 5 times in one hour, yet today I haven't had to to do it at all. I have ordered a replacement keyboard but I'm waiting for the issue to re-occur before I swap it out. The only thing I do not like about this keyboard is the SLEEP hot button being positioned at the top of the keyboard, dead center of a raised part. My desk has a pull out keyboard tray, and the button hits the underside of the desk, putting the pc into sleep mode. Now the tray has to sit higher so that the button isn't lower than the bottom of the desk. Maybe next design go-around you could put it in a corner?

                Comments about Fellowes Microban Split Design Keyboard:

                I'm really hard on keyboards and Fellowes is on of the very few ergonomic keyboards still around. The layout is absolutely perfect and allows me to get close to the high speed typing I've done all my life. It stays very clean and is very easy to take apart for a deep cleaning.Its very easy for me to wear out lettering on most keyboards and yet the fellowes holds up remarkably well. I'm on a pc about 12hrs a day and have worn out 3 of the keys lettering ( a,t,e) but fellowes replaced the keyboard rapidly with zero hassles. I'll be a customer for a very long time.

                  The keyboard performs satisfactorily except that the right space bar sticks in the down position and I have to stop and manipulate the key until I get it unstuck! I thought it would work out after I used the keyboard awhile. It has not improved in the several months that I have owned the keyboard.

                    I just bought the Ergo or split design keyboard model 98915. No "shift" key sub identification commands which are always written on the keys: IE "Shft" + what key is paste/cut/copy etc? There is no "calculator" key which I use a lot. I may return this keyboard due to these things.

                      I've used this particular keyboard extensively each day for several years and not one problem have I experienced with it. I would like to suggest to Fellowes that they simply give the keyboard a 'contoured' shape, i.e., make it higher in the middle than the left and right sides. I'm just now going to purchase my second of these keyboards.

                      Cartridge Comparison Guide
                      • Cartridge Types
                      • Ink & Toner Basics
                      • Number of Pages & Shelf Life
                      Cartridge Type
                      Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
                      Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
                      Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
                      Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
                      What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
                      Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
                      Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
                      Material Liquid ink Dry powder
                      How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
                      Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
                      Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
                      Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
                      Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
