Thinking of getting one of those keyboards that are split in two. (Yes, I will get both pieces. Harr harr.)

    Sweet mother of... They cost a bit more than I was anticipating.

    Might go with a Logitech Ergo K860 instead.

    @iiii yeah, I wasn't quite looking to shell out ~300 bucks.

    Theres a huge list of them here, some are sold kits. https://github.com/diimdeep/...

    Been looking into them too, seems neat

    @synemeup wow, that was quite the rabbit hole! Thank you, that made me find R-Go which seems to fit my budget a bit better (and is available at swedish retailers). =D

    @iiii True and worth it if you want to customise and control what each key/keybindings do.

    I'm interested in those too. I'm going to try a Boardwalk layout first to see if I like ortho at all.

    To all those of you who say 200 or 300 bucks are a lot for a keyboard - can you name another part that costs as much, that you probably use 8-10+ hours a day and that won't go obsolete in 5-6 years?

    @kamen I'm rather saying I simply can't afford that right now. >_<

    Went with a R-Go keyboard (and a cheap Delcato numeric keyboard).

    Yeah don't buy an Ergodox, they're overpriced and - what most probably know with a bit of experience - overkill. Most of the keys just aren't placed in useful ways.

    If you don't mind a more DIY approach you could go for a kit. Of course everyone got different preferences, but I'd say the Kyria has one of the most ergonomic layouts. I have a very similar one and it just fits like a glove.

    But beware, this is a rabbit hole with the deepest caverns and a few wormholes sprinkled in.

    @Berkmann18 wrong. Programmable keyboards are not only ergodox.

    @dmonkey ergonomics (claimed)

    @dmonkey for me it's mostly about ergonomics. I want a more comfortable position for my hands and because I have short arms and small hands (think T Rex) regular keyboards pretty much always forces my arms or hands to be stretched out more than what's comfortable in the long run.

    And also, it looks cool. 😆

    @iiii TF?
    Did I say, ErgoDox were the only ones? No.

    @dmonkey They offer way better ergonomics than the average/standard keyboard and even compared to the full-sized ergonomic keyboards, which may only suit certain people's build.

    @Berkmann18 I don't remember saying anything here NOT about ergodox. The context is not there
