Kinesis Advantage Keyboard Looks Weird, Feels Right, Priced Wrong

I’ve never used one of Kinesis‘ keyboards so I can’t say for sure if they’re worth the price, but Cool Tool‘s Dylan Greene swears by the Kinesis Advantage, and so did most of the people who commented on Greene’s post. The USB keyboard features a contoured layout that minimizes the pains of prolonged typing. It also has 2 USB ports and can be customized for Mac or Windows; there’s also a slightly more expensive version that can be switched to the Dvorak keyboard layout.

No product is perfect, and just by looking at the Advantage I can already see a couple of problems with it. First of all, it’s butt ugly. Second, the keys on the top row are too small for my comfort. Cool Tools commenters also complained about the hard and loud keys.

If the Advantage was reasonably priced I could overlook all of those complaints. Unfortunately, Kinesis is selling the keyboard for $300 (USD). The model with the switchable layout is priced at $325. Right now Kinesis is offering a 10% discount for online purchases, reducing the Advantage’s price to $270, but still. Kinesis should work on improving the keyboard’s aesthetics or at least the quality of the keys.
