Summary

Logitech Ergo K860 is an excellent ergonomic keyboard for the office. It features typical tactile scissor switches, just like the MX Keys and the Apple Magic Keyboard. If you pair the K860 with a Logitech Flow-enabled mouse, you can switch among two or three paired devices, while typing on different machines with the same keyboard.

The $130 Logitech Ergo K860 isn't just a comfortable keyboard. It's the best ergonomic keyboard we've ever used. Logitech claims 15% of computer users feel pain on a daily basis and that its K860 can provide up to 54% more wrist support than traditional keyboards. As a keyboard featuring a USB dongle, Bluetooth, durable plastic and long battery life, the K860 will last the test of time.

Reviewers from Pcmag have found the following[***]:
The Ergo K860 is a one-piece split keyboard, or a "soft split" as I like to call it. There's a triangular gap between the sets of keys destined for use with your left and right hands. Despite having a high curve, the K860 design feels subdued.

Pros[**]
  • Comfortable wrist rest
  • Two sets of feet support inclines of either 4 or 7 degrees
  • Easy-to-use numeric keypad
Cons[**]
  • High curve makes switching to an ergonomic keyboard difficult

Reviewers from Rtings have found the following[***]:
The Logitech ERGO K860 is a nice ergonomic keyboard with a curved design. While this type of layout might take some time to get used to, it reduces wrist strain. The keys are pad printed, and while they feel a bit different than the Logitech MX Keys, they aren't too cheaply made. If you would prefer a keyboard split in two halves, check out the Kinesis Freestyle Edge RGB.

Pros[**]
  • Excellent ergonomic design
  • Very comfortable to type on
  • Works with multiple devices at the same time
  • Excellent wireless capabilities
Cons[**]
  • Very large and heavy
  • Expensive for a curved keyboard
