Split Keyboard Recommendations?


I've been curious about ergo keyboards for a while now but haven't really thought about getting one until I recently started developing some wrist pain. I'm almost ready to pull the trigger on either an Iris or Lily 58, but I wanted to get a couple more recomendations and opinions.

I'm fine with soldering and number keys would be nice but aren't a necessity

If you have wrist pain then I think the most important feature for you is "tenting": that each half can be tilted sideways.
I would look for a kit that offers that or find a way to build a tenting solution yourself.

There is a Split keyboard layout comparison site that includes the most popular split keyboards. From there you can also download the layouts to print out on paper, for trying out before you buy.

nevin: has a bunch of great inexpensive kits
