Watch as Shannon demonstrates how the Kinesis Advantage Contoured Keyboard works!
We've always loved the Kinesis Advantage for its unique contoured design, but the Kinesis Advantage Contoured Linear Feel USB Keyboard for PC and MAC takes it to the next level. Although very similar, the new Linear Feel model replaces the Cherry MX Brown switches used in the Kinesis Advantage and Kinesis Advantage Pro and replaces them with smooth-typing Cherry MX Red switches. These switches remove the tactile "bump" normally felt when typing on a mechanical keyboard, resulting in a less force being required to type and overall smoother operation on each keystroke. This increased ease of typing will certainly be noticeable with heavy use, which makes the Kinesis Advantage Contoured Linear Feel Keyboard an ideal ergonomic keyboard for gamers and heavy typists.
Great keyboard! Well worth the effort and investment

This is a very well designed keyboard. The Advantage layout is a proven design of Kinesis and after using it for a month, I appreciate the work they've done with it. Given the unique design, there may be a bit of a struggle when you first use it, often you will be pressing the wrong keys, but you'll eventually adjust and recover your typing speed after a month or so. With proper use, my wrist pain has been minimized so I would recommend this for professional use. The linear keys are also very welcome reducing stress on the keypresses and the hardware based macros are also very useful particularly for programming. The only minor thing that detracts from this keyboard would be the seemingly shoddy top function keys especially in comparison with the mechanical switches used with the rest of the keyboard.
