Evaluation: Glove80 Ergonomic Keyboard

Sep 3, 2023




Glove80 black

Evaluation tl;dr: get this keyboard in order for you final consolation. There’s an
preliminary studying curve, however your arms will love you for it.


For over 10 years or so, I primarily used Apple keyboards, switching again and
forth to a Microsoft cut up keyboard in intervals when my wrists felt
uncomfortable. In a brush with a extra extreme wrist ache over a 12 months in the past, I
determined to take my hand and arm well being extra severely.

After going by a slew of ergonomic keyboards, I found the Kinesis
, which was
a revelation. Like most ergonomic keyboards, it’s cut up, tented, has thumb
keys, and the keys are specified by columns to keep away from lateral finger actions
(so-called column stagger). Nonetheless, what set it aside from different keyboards
had been the fantastically comfy key wells. The Benefit, like its inspiration,
the Maltron 3D keyboard,
has its keys organized in concave bowls, so-called key wells. This places your
fingers in a extra pure place, places keys nearer to cut back finger journey,
and makes it doable to succeed in keys by transferring fingers alongside their pure arcs.

As soon as the honeymoon section with the Advantage2 was over, I additionally needed to be trustworthy
about its shortcomings: the cut up and tenting diploma are fastened – making it
unattainable to tailor the keyboard to your individual bodily traits akin to
your shoulder width. Additionally, although the thumb cluster has many keys, I might
solely comfortably attain two thumb keys per hand with out transferring my hand.

I used to be trying ahead to the Kinesis Advantage360
, because it solves a few of
the problems with the Advantage2. It helps three completely different tenting angles and
is a really cut up keyboard. Nonetheless, the Advantage360 Professional was quite a
. The
keyboard, which is a hefty 650 Euro, was plagued with Bluetooth points, the
Gateron Brown switches had been tiring for me, and Kinesis didn’t enhance the thumb
cluster. I switched again to my Advantage2 after some time and the 360 Professional was
accumulating mud.

That might simply be the top of my ergonomic keyboard journey, however then I discovered
the Glove80.

What’s it?

The Glove80 is an ergonomic keyboard that’s developed and manufactured by
MoErgo. It has many ergonomic options, together with:

  • Variable cut up, to be able to put the halves in step with your shoulders.
    This avoids bending the wrists outward (ulnar deviation).
  • Tented halves to keep away from pronation.
  • Thumb clusters, with six keys every. This makes it doable to maneuver some
    hard-to-reach keys that require uncomfortable pinky stretches to the thumbs
    (e.g. Backspace and Return).
  • The keys are organized in key wells, placing your arms in a extra comfy
    place, lowering finger journey, and also you to succeed in keys by transferring your fingers
    alongside their pure arcs.
  • Palm rests to keep away from tiring your arms. In distinction to wrist rests, they
    shouldn’t scale back blood movement.
  • Low-profile and low-travel Choc v1 switches to cut back the space fingers need to
    transfer to press keys.

Different characteristic of the Glove80 are:

  • Open supply ZMK firmware, which permits altering the keymap and behaviors.
  • Per-key RGB lighting.
  • Numerous extension choices, akin to GPIO headers and attachment factors for sidecar modules.

I’ve used the Glove80 for 2 months when scripting this evaluation. That could be a
pretty quick time for reviewing a keyboard. Nonetheless, I’ve used different contoured
keyboards earlier than, so I might skip the preliminary studying curve and have used the
Glove80 full-time throughout that interval. I’m not ergonomics skilled, so this evaluation
describes my very own experiences finish just isn’t well being advise.

All through this evaluation, I’ll use the Kinesis Advantage2/360 Professional as the principle
factors of comparability, because the Benefit line is the closest competitor to the
Glove80. Additionally see my Kinesis Advantage 360 Pro
. I’ll go
by numerous side of the keyboard, specifically buy and packaging, the important thing
nicely, thumb cluster, tenting mechanism, palm rests, construct high quality, switches and
keycaps, innards, and the Glove80 ecosystem.

Buy and packaging

The Glove80 can solely be bought by the MoErgo website. As of writing there
aren’t any regional distributors. The worth consists of transport, nonetheless VAT/import
taxes usually are not pay as you go and should be paid by the receiver. The ordering course of
itself is easy, however I seen that folks typically battle with two points:
(1) in case you are not conversant in Choc v1 switches, choosing the proper change can
be overwhelming (see Switches and keycaps); (2) letting
the client pay duties provides uncertainty about how the Glove80 is dealt with by
customs and what delay the customs course of provides. It could be nice if there was
a quick transport possibility (at additional value) with pay as you go duties (like DHL Specific),
which might streamline the method. Alternatively, the the acquisition course of
may very well be simplified by providing the Glove80 by regional distributors (e.g.
for the EU or US). All in all, the method is far more concerned than buying
a Kinesis Benefit, which I can order now and get delivered tomorrow.

The Glove80 arrives in a fairly compact field, which supplies a touch of how flat it
is for a contoured keyboard. The package deal accommodates the halves, a USB-C (keyboard)
to USB-A (host) cable, extra keycaps, materials for customizing the tenting
stage, instruments to take away the keycaps, and a quickstart information. Every thing may be very
properly packaged and the field will be re-used as a journey case in bigger backpacks.
I might have most well-liked if the Glove80 got here with an USB-C to USB-C cable, since
my laptop computer doesn’t have a USB-A port.

Glove80 packaging

Key wells

I used to be anticipating the important thing wells to be just like these of the Kinesis Benefit
and Dactyl Manuform. Nonetheless once I began utilizing the Glove80, the important thing wells felt
fairly completely different. One factor that instantly struck me was that the keys within the
pinky column are simpler to succeed in. I inspected the pinky column and seen a
putting distinction in comparison with different key nicely keyboards. The left picture beneath
exhibits pinky column of the Kinesis Advantage2. The pinky column is raised
in comparison with the ring finger column to account for the shorter size of the
pinky relative to the ring finger. The correct picture exhibits the pinky column of the
Glove80. Although the Glove80’s pinky column is raised in comparison with the ring
finger column within the higher rows, the peak converges to to that of the ring
finger column within the decrease rows.

Kinesis Advantage pinky columnGlove80 pinky column

Once you take a look at your arms opened, you’ll be able to see that (no less than for most individuals),
the pinky is far shorter than your ring finger. Nonetheless, while you clench your
hand right into a fist, your pinky is barely shorter than your ring finger. So even
although the Kinesis Benefit takes your hand’s anatomy into consideration higher than
flat keyboards (which solely shift the pinky column downward in case you are fortunate), the
Glove80 takes it a step additional, taking into consideration the relative size of your
pinky because it curls up.

Hands relaxed and clenched

One other noticeable distinction is the outer index finger column. On the Kinesis
Benefit, the curvature of the important thing nicely and the peak of the keycaps block an
simple lateral index finger motion to the outer column (see the upward arrows in
the close-up of the Benefit key nicely beneath). You must barely elevate your
index finger to land on the keys of the outer column. For me, lateral index
finger actions are fairly awkward, so having to boost my finger provides some
stress. The outer index finger column column of the Glove80 can also be on a robust
curvature to cut back finger journey, nonetheless the keys on the outer column usually are not
raised in comparison with the house column of the index finger. In consequence, you’ll be able to
make a easy lateral transfer to the outer column, nearly urgent the important thing by
merely transferring your finger in direction of it.

Kinesis Advantage index columnsGlove80 index columns

One factor that I liked in regards to the Benefit once I first bought it, are the arrow
keys on the underside row. Since I exploit vi bindings in lots of purposes and the
Colemak-DH format, I don’t have entry to the h/j/okay/l motions that are on the
residence row in QWERTY. The arrow keys on the Benefit will be reached by curling up
your fingers. I discover this extra comfy than placing the arrow keys on a
layer. Nonetheless, utilizing the underside row might get a bit tiring after a day’s value
of programming. I didn’t observe the identical situation when utilizing the underside row on
the Glove80. The distinction turns into obvious when utilizing the keyboards
side-by-side: when curling as much as press the keys on the underside row of the Glove80 you
can press the keys in the identical movement. On the Benefit, the keys need to be pressed
extra in direction of the Z axis. In consequence, urgent a key on the underside row of the Benefit is a
motion that consists of two motions: (1) curl up the finger to succeed in the important thing;
and (2) press the important thing in a unique course to actuate it.

A side of the important thing nicely that nervous me prior buying the Glove80 was that
the keycaps use a uniform profile. The Kinesis Benefit makes use of a strongly
sculpted profile, which I appreciated so much, because it guides the fingers to the keys
and in some circumstances emphasizes the important thing nicely impact. Nonetheless, this hasn’t been an
situation in any respect. The important thing nicely of the Glove80 is clearly designed to work nicely with
uniform keycaps. I’ve come to choose this side of the Glove80 – the robust
profile of the Benefit keycaps make the columns very ragged, whereas the
uniform profile of the Glove80 makes it simpler to slip alongside the columns.

Summarized, MoErgo has clearly made many enchancment to the Glove80 keywell
in comparison with different key nicely keyboards. The design appears to be targeted on letting
your fingers do as little work as doable and permitting it them to observe their
pure motions.

Thumb cluster

The Glove80 breaks the custom of the orthogonal/matrix-style thumb clusters
that had been initially launched by the Maltron 3D keyboard and likewise utilized by the
Kinesis Benefit, ErgoDox, and Moonlander. It’s well-known that most individuals
can solely attain two two thumb keys on the Kinesis Benefit with out transferring their
hand. Within the left image beneath, you’ll be able to see me making an attempt to press the outermost
decrease thumb key of the Benefit, however I can not actually press it with out
by accident urgent the nook of the center key as nicely. I can not attain the
higher keys in any respect.

Kinesis Advantage thumb clusterGlove80 thumb cluster

I’m stunned that Kinesis didn’t redesign their 30 year-old thumb cluster with
the Benefit 360. I suppose that they didn’t need to danger upsetting current customers ????.

The Glove80 makes use of a design that’s extra just like fashionable ergonomic keyboards
just like the Keyboardio Mannequin 100 or the SplitKB Kyria, the place the thumb keys observe
the pure arc of the thumb. The thumb cluster on the Glove80 is three 1U keys
vast and has two rows. The second row is raised in comparison with the primary row to
make it simpler to make use of the second row with out urgent keys on the primary. In
the appropriate image above, you’ll be able to see me urgent the outermost thumb key of the
Glove80. For the reason that cluster follows the thumb arc, I’ve no situation urgent the
key with out by accident hitting the center key. Just like the Kinesis Benefit, my
thumbs relaxation on the internal thumb keys with none effort.

I can not attain all of the keys on the Glove80 thumb cluster with out transferring my hand
(I’m not positive if I’m alleged to with common male arms). However I can pretty
comfortably attain 4 keys (the complete first row and the innermost key of the
second row), which is double of what I can attain on the Benefit. This opens up
new potentialities, akin to transferring shift away from the pinkies, including extra
layer-taps, or maybe a capsword
key (nice for typing constants in lots of programming languages). Given the arc
format and the completely different row heights, I anticipate that the thumb clusters works
nice for each small and huge arms.

Tenting mechanism

The Glove80 makes use of stilts within the type of M4 studs, nuts, and toes as its tenting
mechanism. The toes have rubber bumpons to make sure that the keyboard doesn’t
slide. The Glove80 comes with an assortment of additional studs of various
lengths, extra nuts, and extra toes. The concept is you can screw in
the stilts as deep as wanted and in that means get the precise tenting diploma that
you like. Organising tenting took me 30-60 minutes the primary time. Partly
as a result of I needed to discover essentially the most comfy tenting angle, however largely as a result of
organising the stilts is sort of finicky. Organising tenting is far more work
than the straightforward 3-angle mechanism of the Benefit 360, which you’ll be able to configure
in actually seconds.

Glove80 tenting mechanism

The problem that I had with the tenting mechanism of the Advantage360 is that
I might by no means discover the appropriate tenting angle, so I might typically change between
completely different settings all through the day. With the Glove80 I might set the tenting
to the angle that feels most comfy to me. So, the Glove80 trades off the
short-term inconvenience of organising the tenting mechanism for extra long-term
consolation. After all, if the Advantage360 has an angle that works for you, it’s
much less effort to keep up tenting on the 360.

You probably have a Glove80, I’d strongly advocate you to purchase extra nuts that
have a nylon (or different plastic) locking mechanism out of your native {hardware}
retailer. You possibly can lock within the tenting solidly utilizing such locking nuts. It additionally
makes it a lot simpler to recuperate the precise tenting diploma for those who take away the
stilts (e.g. for journey). These nuts solely value just a few cents every, so I hope that
MoErgo will take into account offering them with the keyboard sooner or later.

Nyloc nuts

Palm rests

I shouldn’t have a lot to say in regards to the palm rests. Although the Glove80 palm
rests shouldn’t have mushy padding, they really feel as good because the palm rests of the
Kinesis Benefit. I at all times use the palm rests, in order that I don’t need to hover
(which I discover tiring). The palm rests will be disconnected from the keyboard,
which is helpful if you wish to scale back the scale when touring or when utilizing very
giant tenting angles. The palm rests are simple to take away and reattach utilizing their

Switches and keycaps

The Glove80 makes use of low-profile Kailh Choc v1 switches. Outdoors a small variety of
Dactyl fashions, that is the primary contoured keyboard to take action. There are numerous
various kinds of MX-compatible switches, however the majority of MX switches
actuate at 2mm and have a complete journey of 4mm. Most Choc v1 switches have a
shorter journey of 3mm and normally actuate at 1.5mm. Using Choc switches and
low-profile keycaps permits the Glove80 to be very near the desk at its lowest
level. MoErgo states that the low profile of the Glove80 was a design aim to
make it doable to keep up impartial tilt with quite a lot of frequent workplace desks. I don’t discover
this argument very convincing, since a very good ergonomic setup ought to have a
electronically height-adjustable desk. For those who don’t have such a desk, you
ought to arguably purchase it earlier than getting an ergonomic keyboard. However it may be a
profit for individuals whose employers solely situation commonplace desks.

Kailh Choc v1 switches

Moreover the decrease profile, I’ve discovered that the shorter journey and actuation
distance makes typing extra easy as a result of your fingers don’t need to journey
as a lot in comparison with MX switches.

As of writing, MoErgo gives the Glove80 with four different switch
. Selecting a change is
in all probability one of the overwhelming features of buying a Glove80. The
Glove80 doesn’t help hotswap, since it’s exhausting to make hotswapping dependable
with the curved flex PCBs in the important thing wells. This makes the change selection a
long-term dedication. Change selection may be very private, so if in case you have doubts
about what change would give you the results you want, it’s best to get a Choc v1 change tester.
That is my tackle every of the change choices:

  • Brown: tactile switches. These switches are fairly gritty/scratchy, even in comparison with
    Cherry Browns. In case you are used to Cherry Browns or different MX tactile switches,
    Choc Browns could appear to be a logical selection, however I might advocate you to get a
    change tester to see for those who discover the grittiness acceptable.
  • White: clicky switches. I don’t have expertise with whites. One factor to
    concentrate on is that in Choc Switches (like Kailh Field switches), the clicking is
    generated by a separate click on bar. Which means the clicking is decoupled from
    the actuation mechanism itself. On some Choc clickbar switches, this results in
    the problem that the actuation will be earlier than or means after the clicking, and that
    they’re ineffective as a suggestions mechanism. I requested round on the MoErgo Discord
    and somebody reported that their White Chocs don’t have this situation. Oh, and
    you in all probability don’t need to use clicky switches round different individuals or on video
    calls. They click on… loudly.
  • Purple: linear switches (50gf). Can’t say something adverse about Choc Reds,
    they’re nice. For those who choose a lighter change, go for Professional Reds.
  • Professional Purple: linear switches (35gf). These are very gentle and fewer tiring than
    Purple switches for some individuals. Nonetheless, the spring power is so gentle that some
    individuals have unintentional actuations (from anecdotes this appears to be a
  • Unsoldered: this feature permits you to solder your individual switches and opens
    up the complete vary of Choc v1 switches. You want some soldering expertise for
    this feature, because you in all probability don’t need to destroy a keyboard this

I feel the principle attraction of Choc change line-up are the linear switches. They really feel
nice and there’s a giant number of spring weights, which ought to please each
gentle and heavy typists. For this evaluation, I used the Glove80 with Purple and
Brown switches. If I’d buy one other Glove80 sooner or later, I might
in all probability go for Professional Purple switches or solder Pink (20gf) switches.

MoErgo designed a customized keycap profile (MCC, MoErgo Choc Cylindrical) for the
Glove80. These keycaps use a cylindrical profile which make it simple to your fingers
to slip alongside the columns. The Glove80 comes with semi-translucent white POM
keycaps. Black keycaps will be bought as an add-on, however the black keycaps are
not translucent and block the RGB lighting. The keycaps really feel nice they usually can
be rearranged while you use another format (such because the German
the Colemak-DH format), since MCC is a
uniform profile. Some individuals could dislike that the homing keys don’t have bumps,
however I’ve discovered that the important thing wells information me to the appropriate finger positions.

MCC keycap profile

Every change is accompanied by an RGB LED. The RGB LEDs can be utilized for results,
although this may drain your batteries in a short time. I at all times go away them
disabled, since I by no means look down at my keyboard anyway. Nonetheless, the Glove80
has a pleasant characteristic the place for those who press the MoErgo/Magic key, the RGB LEDs shall be
used to indicate the battery standing of the halves, the energetic layer, and knowledge
in regards to the Bluetooth profiles.

Status LEDs

One factor to pay attention to is that ZMK doesn’t at present help per-key RGB LED
management. Although this impacts all ZMK keyboards and could be added as a characteristic
sooner or later.

Construct high quality

A lot has been mentioned in regards to the construct high quality of the Glove80 in prior opinions,
particularly compared to the Benefit 360. The very first thing that turns into
instantly obvious while you take the Glove80 out of the field is how extraordinarily
gentle it’s. It’s mentioned that folks affiliate gentle with low cost, however the plastic
feels very stable/sturdy. My Advantage360 had scuffs after utilizing the palm pads a
few occasions, whereas my Glove80 nonetheless seems utterly mint after two months of
use. The lighter weight doesn’t trigger the keyboard to slip extra simply since
the 6 stilts with bumpons present a whole lot of friction. The lightness of the
Glove80 is sweet when touring. I took the Glove80 with me for a two week journey
and the added weight to my backpack was barely noticeable.

One level of criticism that may be leveled on the construct high quality is that a few of
the seams usually are not utterly flush as will be seen within the picture beneath. The seams
look tight sufficient for this to be purely an aesthetic situation.

Glove80 seams

The important thing nicely building of the Glove80 improves over that of the Kinesis
Benefit. The Benefit makes use of three plastic layers: the underside case, the important thing
nicely itself, and the higher case. The important thing nicely is screwed to the higher case (and
within the Advantage2, a beneficiant quantity of glue is added). This feels a bit
fragile – while you press the keys exhausting (for instance when changing keycaps), you
can really feel the important thing nicely and its attachment factors flex. I’ve at all times been a bit
nervous that one of many key wells would break beneath stress. The Glove80 is
completely different on this respect, because it solely consists of two layers. The important thing nicely is
a part of the higher case, which makes the important thing nicely really feel extra stable.

Innards: microcontroller, battery, and firmware

Each Glove80 halves use an
nRF52840 as a part of a Raytac
module with a PCB
antenna. Each halves run the open supply ZMK firmware, which
is likely one of the most in depth keyboard firmware choices apart from
QMK. In contrast to QMK, ZMK is primarily targeted on wi-fi use
by Bluetooth LE. When the left half is related by USB, the keyboard
presents itself to the host laptop as a USB keyboard, nonetheless the halves will
at all times talk by Bluetooth LE. Individuals who choose to make use of a keyboard
totally wired could discover this problematic. In most eventualities this shouldn’t be an
situation since Bluetooth LE makes use of encryption and I’ve discovered the connection between
the halves to be rock stable. In my use during the last two months, the halves have
by no means disconnected and I by no means had any points connecting the halves once they
had been turned again on or when flashing new firmware.

Each halves use a battery with 500 mAh capability. I’ve solely charged the battery
as soon as once I bought the Glove80, apart from incidental charging when flashing new
firmware. The battery drains in a short time although with RGB results enabled
(inside just a few hours at most). For those who like to make use of RGB results it’s higher to
energy the halves by USB. The batteries are user-accessible, to allow them to be
disconnected when the keyboard is barely used wired.

The ZMK firmware utilized by the Glove80 is a latest ZMK model with some
Glove80-specific patches. The keymaps and behaviors
will be edited by hand and
constructed as any common ZMK firmware (or with Nix).
Nonetheless, most individuals will use the online layout
. The editor gives some commonplace keymaps
(QWERTY, Colemak-DH, Kinesis-like, and many others.), however the actual energy comes from defining
a customized keymap. The net keyboard editor works nicely for many customizations
(altering keys, including layers, and many others.). If you wish to change behaviors, there may be
the likelihood so as to add your individual customized conduct snippets. The behaviors can then
be used within the keymap utilizing the &customized key kind. That is the place the
limitations of the editor change into obvious, the customized behaviors usually are not parsed,
so the &customized keys change into stringly-typed from the angle of the editor.
This isn’t a problem for the overwhelming majority of customers who simply need to remap some
keys, however I hope that the editor will parse customized behaviors sooner or later for
those that wish to outline customized behaviors for residence row mods and their ilk.

Keymap editor

When altering the keymap, a brand new firmware with the keymap needs to be flashed to
the keyboard. For format adjustments it usually suffices to flash the left halve,
however each halves should be flashed for brand new firmware variations. Flashing the
halves is fairly simple. As soon as you’re performed along with your edits, you’ll be able to ask
the editor to construct the firmware and after a while the firmware is
routinely downloaded. The firmware will be flashed to a halve by placing the
halve in boot loader mode utilizing a shortcut (Magic + Esc for the left halve,
Magic + ' for the appropriate halve). The boot loader will expose itself as a USB mass
storage gadget with the FAT filesystem. Dragging the firmware to the drive will
flash it.

One good contact is that the firmware is a single file. The Advantage360 Professional makes use of
a separate firmware file for every halve and it’s oh-so-easy to flash the incorrect
firmware to a halve ????, which requires a full keyboard reset to repair it. The
methodology that the Glove80 makes use of for that is intelligent. The UF2 firmware
consists of blocks and
every block has a metadata header. The metadata can include a board household
identifier. The boot loader is meant to disregard blocks that shouldn’t have the
board’s household identifier. The Glove80 halves use completely different identifiers. So the
firmware is only a concatenation of the left halve and proper halve firmwares,
however the left halve ignores the appropriate halve’s UF2 blocks and vice versa.

Hackability & ecosystem

I haven’t tried any of the Glove80 expansions, however there are a good variety of
expansions accessible. For customers of language-specific layouts, MoErgo sells
extra keycap units. There are additionally units for macOS and various symbols. The
Glove80 tripod mounting plate gives various mounting/tenting choices
utilizing digital camera tripods and clamps. MoErgo can also be engaged on a journey case for the

The Glove80 has has M2 anchor factors for sidecar modules. So far as I’m conscious
not many modules exist but. Although somebody has used it to mount Orbital

to the Glove80. Every halve additionally exposes 6 GPIO pins on the logic board, which
might open up the keyboard to different helpful extensions. Utilizing the GPIO pins voids
guarantee although, so it’s not for most individuals.

Glove80 has an energetic and useful neighborhood on the MoErgo Discord. The MoErgo
Discord can also be frequented by MoErgo workers. There are additionally channels about
{hardware} and ZMK mods.

Touring with the Glove80

One situation of switching to an ergonomic cut up keyboard is you can lose all
that consolation if you end up touring. I’ve discovered that the majority lodges and
residences shouldn’t have desks and chairs with the appropriate top to work
comfortably. In such circumstances essentially the most ergonomic resolution is commonly to place the
keyboard in your lap. This works nice with ‘monoblock’ keyboards just like the
fixed-split Kinesis Advantage2. Nonetheless, placing the 2 halves of a really
cut up keyboard in your lap just isn’t very steady.

We not too long ago traveled for 2 weeks and I needed to take the Glove80 with me
since it’s lighter and extra compact than the Advantage2. I lastly discovered a
nice resolution within the bean bag recommended by Ben
: put the bean
bag between your legs, then put every halve in your legs such that the outer
stilts are in your legs and the internal stilts dig into the bean bag. The bean
bag offers the keyboard stability and a small quantity of tenting. For the reason that
halves are much less separated than on a desk, I angle the halves barely inwards
for finest consolation.

Portable Glove80 using a bean bag

For this journey I transported the Glove80 in its authentic field, which inserts in my
Ortlieb cycle backpack. I hope to attempt the deliberate Glove80 case sooner or later,
because it ought to take away a good bit of quantity in comparison with the cardboard field.


There isn’t a excellent keyboard, however the Glove80 does come awfully shut. The
Glove80 pulls key nicely keyboards out of the native optimum that they’ve been in
the final 30 years or so. The important thing wells characteristic important enhancements over the
competitors and the thumb clusters really feel far more pure. The continual
tenting mechanism, mounting choices, and the beneficiant variety of (reprogrammable)
keys make it doable to tailor the Glove80 to your individual preferences. If you need
a keyboard that’s extraordinarily comfy and are keen to undergo the
studying curve of adapting to a column stagger key nicely keyboard, you’ll be able to’t
actually go incorrect.

I hope that MoErgo can streamline the buying course of sooner or later. In
specific, it might be good if the uncertainties round customs dealing with and
transport occasions may very well be eliminated. For everybody deserves to get their arms on
this nice keyboard.



  • Beautifully comfy key wells, thumb cluster, and palm relaxation.
  • Tenting will be micro-tuned to your preferences.
  • Choc v1 switches make typing very gentle.
  • Bluetooth connectivity may be very stable.
  • Nice GUI editor that gives the performance wanted by most customers.
  • Light-weight, so good for journey, particularly as soon as the journey case is offered.
  • Good selection in switches.
  • Extensible by the sidecar mechanism and GPIO headers.
  • Good and useful neighborhood.


  • Tenting mechanism can take a while to arrange and it might be good if the
    keyboard got here with extra nuts to lock within the tenting.
  • Some seams within the building usually are not very tight.
  • The change selection will be overwhelming with out prior expertise with Choc
  • The order course of may be very streamlined, however offers a whole lot of uncertainty round
    how duties and transport are dealt with.

Score: 5/5
