About this deal

The home row of keys is colour coded and sculpted so you can find them without taking your eyes off the screen.

The keys are arranged in vertical columns (rather than staggered) to better reflect the natural motion of your fingers. For maximum typing comfort, simply split the two modules to shoulder-width and angle them slightly to achieve a neutral wrist angle. These configurations allow complete separation (130 mm) and/or adjustable front splay, adjustable or fixed tenting, plus integrated and removable, padded palm supports. All chairs are supplied with a 5-year guarantee against fault in manufacture, including structural parts, when used in normal office conditions.Oh, if you're using this for gaming, don't use it at an angle, you'll put weird strain on your pinky fingers, which can be quite painful. It is your responsibility to carefully check that all items have been delivered in the correct quantity and to the required specification. The two keywells are “tented” at an optimal 20 degree angle moderately raising the thumb side of the hand. Please bare with me because it matters to understand why the Advantage360 is superior and better to the existing Advantage2 in many ways. We offer a two week trial period on the majority of products (exclusions do apply ie Software, Headsets etc) which starts from the day you receive your item(s).

After receiving the Kinesis and starting to use it, I couldn't go back to any other Keyboard any more. Kinesis Freestyle 2 is an ergonomic split keyboard that is split down the middle and can be separated into two separate working halves. The MX Red silents were linear; there was zero tactility or feedback; it felt like you were pushing into the void and suddenly hit a wall.This is at least 25% less than most traditional and many ergonomic keyboards such as the Microsoft 4000 with maximum key forces of over 60 grams.

There is a button underneath you need to press to change the setting, and it's effortless to change the keyboard's height instantly. The split design also allows me to put the mouse (or trackball if you have one) in the middle of both keyboards, which makes using the mouse more comfortable. It was one of the reasons I purchased the Advantage360, so I don't have to mod it again to add QMK or ZMK support. The numeric keypad has been relocated to the right-hand set of keys and toggled via the usual Num-Lock.A 20 inch linking cable is used to connect the two keyboard modules, which can be adjusted to suit a user's preference and the desktop environment. Switching to keypad is pretty annoying, especially if you forget that you've done it and start trying to type normally.

I believe it will be an amazing step up in keyboard development and revolutionary for individuals with keyboard related health issues. But I also configured with quick_tap_ms = <200>;, this has the effect that if you quickly tap Space several times and hold it, it behaves like a Space button and is no longer a switch key for the FN layer. One of the most significant changes and the number one decision to purchase the Advantage360 was its wireless split design. Our working from home range is only a fraction of the range of seating, desking and accessories that we offer. Tenting of the keyboard can be facilitated via 3 optional accessories and each side can be angled independently of the other.I also wrote a review about it if you're interested: My review of the Moonlander MK1 keyboard I've used the Moonlander for like 6-12 months; However, it wasn't for me, not because of the quality or hardware, but the design didn't work out for my small hands. With the all-new SmartSetTM Programming Engine, Advantage2 features powerful programming tools designed to let you customize the keyboard to boost your productivity. The integrated palm supports reduce stressful bending of the wrists and provide a convenient place to rest your hands when you are not actively typing. Because my Raycast/Alfred (finder applications) and the ESC key are on those keys, I immediately found it cumbersome.
