Kinesis hit the ball out of the park with this model. I'm a software engineer and spend most days doing hours of coding and typing emails/Slack/documentation; I can't imagine working without this keyboard. I use Karabiner Elements for all of my keyboard layering and remapping and haven't had a need to customize the firmware yet so it's been a great drop-in replacement from the older Kinesis Advantage models I've used over the last 10 years. It's really easy to switch the keyboard over to different systems when you're paired via bluetooth. I have two Macs and just hit Mod-1 for system 1 and Mod-2 for system 2 and the keyboard switches seamlessly. This model proved to be worth the months of waiting for it to be released.
Been waiting for a split version of the Advantage for over a decade and this delivers. I had to move a few keys around and remap them to make it suit me, but once that is done it has been great. The github interface is a little slow, but fine honestly. I've been on a regular keyboard for the past few months cause my old Freestyle died and I was waiting for this. It was worth the wait for sure, but it's taken a few days to get used to it. I'm now up past 50 WPM on it which is only a bit slower than I am on a "normal" keyboard but perfectly servicable. I still have a number is mis-clicks, especially for keys that are in different places like +, but I think I'll be faster on this than on a regular keyboard eventually. The main thing I wish is that each piece had a threaded mounting hole on the bottom so I could easily mount it on a chair (been thinking of actually mounting it so my arms hang down to type for ultimate ergonomics). The icing on the cake for this setup would be to incorporate one of those old IBM nubbin mice, or a trackpad into the board so you could just leave your hands down forever.
Feels so solid and well constructed. The keys take a little getting used to - they require less pressure than I expected based on my previous Advantages - but after day typing on it I appreciated the shorter travel.
I really love this keyboard! I have an advantage2 and love that as well, however the aesthetics of the advantage360 were obviously incredibly appealing to me along with the split keyboard side of things. Currently working on finishing my setup which is quite unorthodox yet works perfectly with these. I have a keyboard tray attached to a kitchen counter (I'm a software engineer who basically just codes nonstop I don't do much cooking lol) and from that I have another smaller mouse pad tray coming off for a trackball mouse. Currently have two more mousepad trays coming which when attached will be able to hold the two sides of the keyboard perfectly, and at the perfect height to allow me to have my hands in as near a perfect resting position as I could hope to get it, allowing me to use my armrests while typing in an extremely comfortable fashion.
This keyboard has basically just perfected my setup and I am beyond happy with it. I got the basic version because I didn't need wireless, even the wired version is trivial to carry around, so I didn't see the benefit there really. Worst case I'll get a second for the office once more are in stock. I got extremely lucky and searched for this on a whim on google and found the Jestik entry there. Happy I stumbled upon it and ordered, didn't expect it to sell out so quickly. I did replace the home keys with my advantage2 keys because they are shaped slightly differently and catch your fingers, but that's a personal preference (I also like the blue on those keys, looks pretty nice with the advantage360)
It blows away the old advantage I got the wireless one and love it!
I had purchased one of these several years ago. I purchased the 22 inch ball bearing track and the platform. I like being able to switch the mouse from left to right to avoid repetitive stress injury. The design hasnt changed much at all. it is sturdy (and heavy). Compared to the old one the the front to back track moves smoothly, but raising/lowering the tray takes more force than it should. and rotation takes way too much force. I don't use this feature, but if i did it would be a deal-breaker. Easy removal of the wrist support is helpful as I have an ergonomic keyboard with an integrated wrist support.
I'm a web application programmer and a Kinesis user for more than 10 years. I'm now working at home and my Kinesis Classic is still at my locked down office. After three months working on a regular keyboard my wrist RSI was flaring up for the first time in years. So, a brand new Advantage KB600 for working at home.
I had accustomed myself to the contoured KB years ago and it's great having my old favorite back again. I had actually worn out several keys on the old mode 133 (with the ps/2 adapter only) at about the 8 year mark and Kinesis refurbished it at a reasonable cost. It's still working great. These things are work horses, it may be the last keyboard you will ever need. Worth every penny.
very solid with no wobble. love that its modular so I can mix parts from other ones of the series to expand it.
Five stars to Jestik for business, four stars for the keyboard.
I have liked the keyboard so far. This is my first ergonomic and mechanical keyboard, so I am not really sure what to expect.
It has been two weeks since I am using this keyboard, so still have to get used to it a bit.
some keys in thumb clusters are a bit hard to reach, and so are some other keys too.
The build-quality and overall keyboard functionality are very good. will hopefully update my review later.
Fast response. Nice product
Easy setup. Keys are soft and make very little noise. This is my 3rd keyboard in several years. Very happy with my purchase.
The stand is exactly what I was needing for a second monitor.
Perfect for me. I have these at my office now and I do say they are worth every penny.
VERY STURDY I love this arm , the directions little difficult figuring out. I like how you can adjust the height quickly,I will be buying other arm for my 2 Monitor
I absolutely love this desk. It holds 3 monitors and I even lean on it when it's up. It's spacious. Very nice quality, easy to put together. Comes mostly assembled. Worth every penny.'
It works well!

I am currently using this product and I noticed that when I’m typing on my keyboard, the desk kind of goes down a little. I have the base zip tied, but something seems unsteady. Is it something else I need to do so that it will be more stable?
This monitor stand is a solid value. There are cheaper units out there and I have had several experiences with inexpensive stands, not good. On this stand I have two Dell U3415W 34" monitors stacked. The hardware and center post are more than sturdy enough that these monitors sit steady and solid. The model I bought is non clamping and has a generous (heavy) base that is necessary to stabilize large monitors. Good solid unit I would definitely recommend.
I have been using this for about 4 weeks now and it has been great! It is large and it is bulky, so keep that in mind if you have a small desk. I have an L-shaped desk and put it in the corner with a large monitor and a lot of office stuff that I used regularly. It lifts and goes down very easy with the push of a lever. If you sit all day, this is the perfect way to spend some time standing....they say that sitting is the new smoking!
I work from home and I love that I am not confined to a chair all day. This desk is easy to use, can go from sit to stand smoothly and can adjust to any height.
Holds my 24" dells up perfectly would recommend.
So far so good. I believe this one goes the highest. I had a veridesk at my old job and I do not know the difference
This product, the 130 1x3, is very well made, easy enough to set up and is adjustable in almost every way. The only thing I would like to see is a way to adjust the forward-back spacing, especially for the top monitor. Because of the nature of my top LED monitor I have to angle it down towards my eyes, this means the bottom bezel of the top monitor does not align with the top bezel of the bottom monitor. I'm going to solve this by finding some plastic spacers from my local hardware store and trim them to size.
Highly recommended! it will bear a lot of weight (holds the 27 inch iMac beautifully) and I imagine stability is the reason it is locked down. Recommended.
Quality stand at a great price, the second one we've purchased.
