Truly Ergonomic keyboard registering double keypresses?
« on: Wed, 08 February 2012, 22:10:59 »
So I just got my TECK today and I'm really frustrated by it. Part of it is due to the funny key locations---which hopefully I will become accustomed to, but I really think an extra column to the right of the right-pinky column would be warranted to keep /, |, - and ' where you expect them. However I think this is stuff that is a matter of overcoming muscle memory.

The bigger issue is that I am getting a lot of double key presses. I have to keep a watchful eye on what I type and usually have to re-enter passwords. Has anyone else had this? This seems like it would be a firmware issue rather than hardware...

I do like the Blue switches---my laptop keyboard feels so gross now---but I'm not so convinced about the TECK's ergonomic features. I may just have to return it and up my max-price on the ErgoDox...

EDIT: Just saw this thread:, sorry for the extra thread.

There aren't many red TEs around here. IIRC Gerk and RTbar have/had one, though RTbar's is going to treigle I think.

Gerk posted he had no issues, dunno about RTbar.
Keyboard: Kinesis Ergo Advantage (two LF editions with red Cherry switches, one regular with brown switches)
Keyboard layout: basically Colemak, with some remapping to end up with my custom Kinesis Advantage layout
Typing test profiles: / /
