Matias FK403QPC overview

  • 1Description

Type in customizable comfort with the Matias Ergo Pro Keyboard for PC. A 17" bridge cable allows you to place the two sides of the keyboard in whatever position is most comfortable for you. The legs can be adjusted to tilt your keyboard at a convenient angle, and the removable palm rests support your wrists.

The Ergo Pro's key switches provide tactile feedback while still being quiet enough to use in a shared environment. Dedicated hotkeys are added for the 4 most common keyboard shortcuts - undo, cut, copy, and paste. The Function key gives you access to audio shortcuts for volume, play/pause, and next/previous track. The laser-etched keys will retain their symbols even after lengthy use, and the sculpted shape helps keep your fingers centered without slipping. Anti-Ghosting Circuitry prevents skipped and added letters, no matter how fast you type.

Three USB 2.0 ports on the Ergo Pro expand functionality, allowing you to plug in flash drives, digital cameras, a mouse, or other peripherals. No drivers are required - plug the Ergo Pro into an available USB port on your PC, and start using it right away.

Fast, Comfortable, Quiet Typing
The Ergo Pro's key switches deliver generous amounts of tactile feedback, while providing enough resistance to support the weight of your hands. Matias Quiet Click mechanical switches are designed to be quiet enough to use in office environments without disturbing coworkers.
Navigation, Audio, and Shortcut Keys
The navigation keys on the Ergo Pro are arranged in their traditional pattern, but are laid out horizontally along the bottom row. This makes them both familiar and easy to use, while being more ergonomic. 4 dedicated hotkeys are added for common keyboard shortcuts - undo, cut, copy, and paste. And by holding down the Fn key, you gain access to shortcuts for Volume Up/Down, Mute, Pause/Play, Next Track, and Previous Track.
Laser-Etched, Anti-Ghosting Keys
The keys on the Ergo Pro are laser etched - burned into the keys with a laser - so they won't wear off and leave you searching for the symbol you need. The key tops are also sculpted to fit the curve of your fingertips, to keep your fingers from sliding out of home position. And thanks to Anti-Ghosting Circuitry, no matter how fast you type, the Ergo Pro can keep up without ghosting - no letters missing, and no additional letters that you didn't type.
Customizable Positioning
The 17" bridge cable allows you to set up the split keyboard at whatever distance is most comfortable for you. Leave your keyboard flat, or use the leg supports for 9° tenting and 4.5° negative tilt. Big and comfortable palm supports are also included, but can be removed if desired.

    Matias FK403QPC reviews

    Ergo Pro Keyboard for PC is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good keyboard - not perfect, but delivers where it matters! I got this keyboard to use on my Mac - the Mac version was out of stock. The PC version is actually the same once you toggle a dip switch hidden below the right alt key. It replaces my Microsoft Sculpt keyboard, which was good but still not soft enough on my RSI-affected programmer hands. This once, after getting used to using the exact amount of force required to press a key so as not to bottom out, does the trick. It actually becomes a pleasant experience to type on it. Pros: - It allows me to position my hands precisely how I want to. - The key curvature and the space between keys make it almost impossible to mistype. You can't hit two keys at once unless you really want to. - The extra shortcut keys on the left side is something you can't do without once you're used to it. - The oversized bottom row is actually convenient. - Solid build, it will most likely survive years of heavy use. - Not too wide, my mouse and trackpad can be in a comfortable position. Cons: - Although the keys are comfortable, they're quiet mechanical keys and that comes at a cost. I find the tactile feedback for lacking compared to other mechanical options. Takes a while to get used to. - Takes a little too much force to depress a key to my taste, although it's close. - Wires, wires, wires! - I wish it had a save / cmd + s shortcut - although remapping an F-key with Karabiner does it. - It's hard to carry around, being so big and heavy. - I miss the right Alt key (it becomes a cmd key once you switch the keyboard to Mac mode), I need it to type accented characters once in a while. All in all, after a few weeks of using this keyboard, my hands hurt less than when I was using my Microsoft Sculpt keyboard, which was already much better than my previous non-ergonomic keyboard, and that's pretty much the only thing that matters. I would definitely buy it again.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best of both worlds I have been a fan of mechanical keyboards ever since I bought the Code Keyboard. However, after injuring my right wrist, using a traditional (i.e. non-ergo) keyboard and mouse made things worse. A friend recommended this keyboard to me and I like it a lot. The switches don't feel as good as the Cherry MX Brown that I had in the old one in my opinion, but they are still much pleasant to type on than rubber dome switches and it doesn't cause any more pain on my wrist.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best keyboard I've ever used! As the introduction says, it's good for typing for a long time.
