It is, because it's just a thumbnailóufraw keeps crashing on me these days.

The 2020 is a a piece of crap. Seriously. It looks cheap, feels cheap, and using two scissor switches per key instead of stabilizers is one of the worst ideas ever. Sure, bigger hand separation and an extra pair of keys in the middle could be nice, but we have ergodox for that, and it adds a lot to its size, making it less portable. The great thing about TM 2030 is that it's extremely portable.

Why not ask AcidFire? I could try hook you up for some. Cost for a pair I think would be around $15 + Shipping.

Hoggy, your nice collection has grown into an awesome collection! You've been quietly making some acquisitions I see :)

Yes, I still have an Alphagrip, it's a neat device. By looking at it you can tell if you'd like it or not. By it's nature it inherently has some great features.
(I have it for sale $65 plus shipping if anyone is interested)

Zinc doesn't rust. It's relatively corrosion resistant.

The difference is obvious, columnar layout should be better because fingers have different length. However, everyone is different, thus it's kinda difficult to find the ideal staggering. Moreover, the typematrix isn't fully split, that makes a difference as well, of course.

I don't have an opinion on the ergodox yet, that isn't sort of general.

New 'Dox with Blues and white PCB (via Mechanical Keyboards). I might not even put the aluminum plates on it when they arrive:




I think I need to put the stabilizers on this one. The heavier spring in the Clears doesn't need it, but on these blues you really gotta hit the thumb buttons dead on or they stick.

It's a yogitype.  Sadly it's rubber dome.

You rest your arms on the two rests, with the wrists facing each other. The keys are facing away from you on the back of the uprights.  I've only had chance to try it out for a few minutes so far.  I'm guessing it'll take a few hours (at least) to get used to it. When you press a key, a corresponding led on the front lights up.

Doable.  Are you thinking of getting one?

just playing with the idea. It looks rather nice. But the next thing I'll probably get is something ortholinear. I find that staggered layout works better with lower profile and lighter switches. For example, right now I'm typing on a $12 rubber dome with flat keys, and I find it less tiring than typing on my stock mx clears. I really want a Topre though, don't know what I would make of the layout :/

Wow, that's crazy. When I saw the letters on the inside, I thought you somehow had to type with your palms facing outwards! Looks interesting for sure, but I don't think I'd enjoy typing on it.

I use a Truly Ergonomic with MX browns at work. I like the physical layout but find the layout remapping pretty limited (you can only have a single function layer, I like to have extra layers by holding down thumbkeys to do different things - this might not matter to you). Also I've had quite a lot of problems with key chatter and the different firmwares that were supposed to fix it didn't help much. Some days like today it's fine, then others I feel like an absolute idiot for spending so much on a keyboard that is hardly able to perform its one single function.

Have a look at this blog post about the Truly Ergonomic, I pretty much agree with all of this, and the comments at the bottom about key chatter. There was also a really hilarious post I found about it with the guy typing and not correcting the chatter in his post, I'll try to find it. edit: found it!. Note that even though he said changing firmware almost fixed it for him, the latest firmware does not fix it completely on my board.

I use an Ergodox at home and I absolutely love it, especially now I have nice keycaps on it (DCS with GMK Carbon Modifers from Massdrop). If given the choice, I would definitely go with an Ergodox... The Ergodox was just a bit too weird and difficult to replace for me to take to work.

I could never go back to a staggered keyboard. Ortholinear FTW!
