Model 227 uses Kailh "Next Generation", not Cherry.
It is "Kailh", new Kailh are better than Cherry. Read the freaking posts and get informed before posting.
Funny that most compare TEK vs ErgoDox.
ErgoDox is only available once in a while, is a DIY (you have to solder and assemble yourself), no Function keys, too many non-ergonomic thumb keys, two pieces that are hard to place at the perfect position and when they are perfectly placed they move around all the time.
TEK is already assembled, buy it at any time, great design, and as well programmable.
If you have big hands, the Ergodox is pretty ergonomic, including the thumb keys. If you have small hands you'll have a tough time with ergonomic keyboards anyway since there is just so much space you can fit keys into; a curved keyboard like the Kinesis becomes a requirement.
I like how the Ergodox halves are separated, it lets me reposition my hands freely. Try keeping both hands relaxed at your sides when typing without a split keyboard :)
