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.
