Re: Ergodox Euro Tour

@Stabilized:

I know I do not meet the requierements for applying to test the keyboard, but I am curious about if you will "soften" a little the rules so those interested (as myself) will, someday, be able give it a try. :mrgreen:

Thanks.

99% of the time, yes. I learned typewriting (qwerty layout) with an old Olivetti Lexicon 80. Man, my fingers ache for weeks after the firsts lessons, specially the pinkies. As a result I can achieve an average speed of 70WPM (keyhero speed and only with Spanish texts) easily, but with the drawback o...

I had a split BFO 9000 with blue Kailh low profile, and I really liked the keyfeel and ergonomic aspect, but I discovered that for my life I can’t type quickly on them, even after a month of using them. Great keyboard otherwise, you can write your firmware etc. Here is it compared to an Apple wirel...

Ok. I'll plunge onto ErgoDox more deeply, and see what tickles my fancy.

I think it'll be better to stay away from soldering right now and let the pros do the job. :mrgreen:

So far my choice has narrowed to:
- Ergodox
- Cherry Switches
- Pre-built

Thanks for your advice, Muirium.

[Advice Needed] Options for ortholinear keyboards

Sorry if this thread doesn't belong here. I looked through the wiki and ortholinear keyboards caught my eye, splitted ones specially. As I visited some of the sellers, I had trouble trying to decide which switches, caps or PCB will fit me better. So I need some kind advice about some questions: Whic...

Thanks.
There is a lot of stuff and info here.
Right now I'm with the wiki and trying to assimilate all those new concepts.

New to the forum

Hi everyone, Newcomer to the forums here. English is not my main language, so sorry for all the typos I'll do. I've been always fascinated by mechanical keyboards, as they were the first keyboards I typed on (back in 1986), but never owned one. I'll fix that, for sure. As of now, I'm using the follo...
