I believe all Microsoft's ergonomic keyboards have the modifier keys
placed symmetrically to the home position keys. I myself is using “The
Microsoft Natural Multimedia Keyboard”. For review, see:

Also, about maybe last year i looked, most of the cheapest generic pc
keyboards these days also have the modifier keys symmetrically placed
to the F and J keys. Although i think their right Control is more to
the right because the added a menu key on the right side.
