What would you like to do?
Every "split" mechanical keyboard currently being sold that I know of
  • Kinesis Freestyle (Terrible key switches. Mushy and un-lovable)

  • Matias Ergo Pro (Looks pretty great. Have not tried.)

  • ErgoDox Kit (Currently, my everyday keyboard. Can buy pre-assembled on eBay.)

  • ErgoDox EZ (Prolly the best option for most people.)

  • Diverge 3 (Looks great. Might buy one. Ergo-dox really has too many thumb keys anyway. This might be a better design.)

  • Diverge TM 2 (Cool idea. Magnets! Too few keys for me.)

  • Keyboardio (Halves can optionally be separated. Looks promising, but too few keys)

  • UltraErgo (Does not appear to be mechanical)

  • Lets Split (Dunno what this is yet)

  • Mistel Barocco (no arrow keys, but looks good if you like 60% keyboards)

  • Goldtouch (Technically one-piece, but close enough. I've used these. They're crap.)

  • Goldtouch Go (Technically one-piece, but close enough. These are also crap.)

  • Comfort Keyboard Split Magic Keyboard (This looks terrible)

  • SafeType Keyboard (Also looks terrible)

  • Axios (Something gloriously weird that is under development. Maybe.)

How long did it take you to get used to the ortholinear key layout on the ErgoDox?

I've got a Matias Ergo Pro. It is pretty nice, but in over a year of use I've got several sticky keys. I have other non split mechanical keyboards from steel series so I know there are better switches out there. Plus the keyboard is missing some important keys. Like insert for example.

Keeb.io makes a few different PCB's for splits
