When I first saw this $295 keyboard on Indiegogo, I had my doubts. But the more I learned about it the more I thought it was worth every penny. ErgoDox EZ mechanical keyboard can be labelled as the world’s most ergonomic keyboard that has been funded 179% of its original goal. Good news is, you should prepare yourself for this open source keyboard design which is easy to put together and tailor to your specific needs. It has two different adjustable wing pieces for resting your wrists and four metal legs which help in setting up the ergonomic position which is great for people like me who have to write a lot using the keyboard.
The $295 price point is the most you’ll have to pay for this keyboard and of course you can go for the lower priced kits, but then you’ll have to assemble or solder it yourself. People with a good hand at electronics and soldering can certainly save $55 to $90 with that option. You can also upload you own configurations and news ways to setup the ErgoDox EZ keyboard.
