Conventional keyboards use membrane or scissor key switches with rubber domes that have an uncertain and spongy feel, greatly vary their sensitivity through their short life, and require too much force for every key press.

The Mechanical key switches used for each key in Truly Ergonomic keyboards require very low force to activate and provide a gentle tactile feedback when pressed that helps you feel when each key registers.

If you hear a loud sound for each keypress while using your Truly Ergonomic keyboard, it means you are using too much force – likely badly influenced by conventional products.

Please press the keys as lightly as possible.
You should not hear a loud sound when pressing the keys.

If only clean water drop over your keyboard: un-plug your keyboard from your computer, let the water drain, dry it as much as possible with a clean soft cloth or small vacuum, and let it dry overnight. Make sure your keyboard is completely dry before plugging in into your computer.

Otherwise, give your keyboard a bath:

  • Un-plug your keyboard from your computer.
  • Submerge the keyboard in a bin containing 20% isopropyl alcohol with 80% Distilled/Deionized water for a few minutes.
  • Keeping the keyboard submerged, shake it a few times to remove debris and contaminants as much as possible.
  • You can also take a clean soft cloth, submerge, and use it to scrub it.
  • Drain the keyboard and let it dry overnight.
  • Make sure the keyboard is completely dry before plugging in into your computer.
  • You might need to repeat this process a few times if required.
