Yes! And then next thing you know, you won’t be able to work with non-ergonomic keyboards/mouses! Before I upgraded to better equipment my wrists were in really bad shape. I switched to ergonomic and it was weird at first but truly helped once I got used to it (which only took a few days).

Basically same. I felt like I was getting carpal tunnel in my fingers and ergo helped. Now non-ergo feels so weird

Yes links please!

Yessss. I literally have 3 of these, home office, office office and parents basement office. Love the Microsoft Sculpt! On decent sale during Black Friday too. Agreed with the other posters you’ll get used to it and won’t want to go back.
