    Research consistently shows that Qwerty and Dvorak keyboards outperform alphabetical layouts. The most common keys you type are not conveniently ordered in the alphabetic layout. As a Dvorak user, I found it reprehensible that a company would use the arguments against the Qwerty to dupe users into buying a piece of crap.

    Thoughs?

    If I come across any research I'll post it here.

    I guess it's like all things - you get used to it with use... I suppose...
    Personally, I wouldn't - because I wouldn't use it... my fingers took long enough to get used to where the keys are on THIS keyboard... lol

    Dvorak was worse enough, but now there's an alphabetical board too? Crazy!

    I sure hope they did ergonomics tests for these keyboards. I don't mind re-learning a new keyboard layout, as long as they make my data entry faster.

    It is good that there are different types, though.
    Makes it easier for everyone to find what they find the most useful.
