Fun Keyboard - my first ortholinear
Not going to lie, I was nervous about switching to ortho. But as it's hot-swappable and a little more interesting than the GMMK, I figured I'd take the plunge at the least to try new switches and fiddle around with. A week has passed and I'm not sure if I can go back now! As a touch typist, the ortholinear layout is great because it highlights any weaknesses or bad habits that you've developed over time - I use my right hand to reach over to the left B and V keys, for example. Also, once you are used to programming the keys, at least to me it makes it a lot easier for me to remember what function keys I've programmed to what, because they are all in a simple, easy to remember grid layout.
All in all, I think this is the most flexible keyboard I've ever had the privilege of trying, and if you're a touch typist, I think you would enjoy the programmability and hot swappability. The extra number row makes it a little easier as well to get into if the Planck is too intimidating :>
If this keyboard was bluetooth compatible, I think this would be the absolute perfect, hands down keyboard for me of all time. Would love to see a bluetooth enabled board in the future!
Would recommend to a friend.
