- Easy setup
- Intense separation (9")
Most of the ergonomic keyboards I tried cost too much to justify them being worth my money. The only other ergonomic keyboard that I found to be reasonably priced was the Targus ErgoDox ECHELON Compact Keyboard/Mouse. With any key customizable dual modular design, it was the only keyboard that I identified as a possibility for me.
The Kinesis Freestyle2 Blue Wireless Ergonomic Keyboard for PC (9" Separation) is a variant of the Kinesis Freestyle2 with the split design feature I was looking for. Since I'm a standalone editor these days, I've been very sensitive about the layout of my keyboard.
The Kinesis Freestyle2 Blue doesn't feel like a gaming keyboard, but it is much better than the Logitech G710 that I reviewed previously. The Logitech has always been kind of meh for typing, but the Kinesis has much more of an authoritative feel to it.
The feel to the keys is good, and the touch pad buttons are also easy to use. There is a USB charging port for the keyboard's backlight to come on at night or in the dark, which is helpful.
As with all wireless keyboards, connecting is always going to be a hassle when you're switching between computers. I wish that Kinesis would develop a USB dongle to negate this, maybe something they could build into the mouse.
As far as the split design, the switches beneath the keys feel good. They are fairly quiet, and while not silent, are also not noisy.
