The Ergonomics of Keyboards, Keypads and Computer Displays

August 3, 2017

In Part 3 of our series, you'll see the different input devices I've experimented with and the computer displays I'm using... with eye toward ergonomics.


Ergonomics Part 3: Selecting Gaming Keypads, Keyboards, and Computer Displays

In part 1 of this series, we talked about the ergonomics of your editing or color correction desk. In part 2 of this series, we talked about wiring and presenting your desk in a neat, professional manner. I’m going to wrap up this series by talking about the ergonomics of keyboards and other peripherals. Specifically, we’ll be looking at the Logitec G13 and Razer Chroma Orbweaver gaming keypads (click their links for my overviews of those two devices, here on Mixing Light) plus several keyboards I’ve tested out over the past few months and the computer displays I’m using for my external scopes and desktop.

I’ll be talking about all of these devices in the context of trying to build as ergonomic a room as possible. For instance, when selecting a computer display you’ll see why I put lots of emphasis on the ‘swivel factor’ and why I might choose a different display, in the future. You’ll also learn why I’ve decided to ditch one keyboard that’s my all-time favorite to type with.
