Truly Ergonomic (TECK) mechanical keyboard now available with Red switches

We’re happy to announce that our mechanical ergonomic keyboard, the Truly Ergonomic 209, is now available with Cherry MX Red switches. That means you’ll get an even softer typing experience, with light 45 cN linear switches that ensure minimum hand fatigue.

The Truly Ergonomic is a unique keyboard that is the most comfortable I have ever used. Through introducing a new layout with modifier keys in the middle, your fingers don’t have to move as far. The keyboard is also much thinner than a traditional split ergonomic keyboard, meaning you can keep your mouse right in front of you instead of stretched out to the side.

If you’re interested in how the Truly Ergonomic with these new red switches, please have a look at the Truly Ergonomic with Red Switches product page for more information and additional photos.

You can also have a look at my hands-on Truly Ergonomic First Impressions. It includes a mention of the options available for customising the keyboard’s layout and how easy it is to learn the revised layout.

If you’ve got any questions about the Truly Ergonomic, please feel free to leave them in the comments below! Thanks for reading and be sure to let me know what you think of the article.

    I hope they release a version with blue switches.

      I hope they don’t (jk).
      Otherwise I’ll have to buy it as well :)

        I’ve heard they had a limited run with blue switches…

        Why are blue’s never in these ergonomic keyboards.. I would have bought the kinesis if they had it…

          I’ve read somewhere they did make blues, but the contact in the switch bounces a bit more in blue probably, they couldn’t fix the problem with doubling the key actuation on single press occasionally, so they pulled them instead of fixing that. Yea, that’s stupid IMO, apart from Maltron – which is super ugly and expensive – there seems to be no ergonomic keyboard with blues now.

    Read your initial review of this keyboard, thinking of buying one. Do you use this keyboard on a daily basis? Would you recommend it?

    What’s the biggest pro and con?

    Thanks for great posts!

      Hi there,

      Sadly I had to return it to Keyboard Company HQ after a couple days :)

      I’d recommend it if you’re looking for the performance and fun typing experience of a mechanical keyboard, with the health benefits of an ergonomic keyboard. It definitely takes some time to get used to, but it’s totally workable and should be great for anyone that suffers pain from typing.

      Pro: You barely have to move your hands while typing on it, a very comfortable experience.

      Con: The first couple of hours / days can be rough, and you’ll definitely be typing slower when you try to use it!

      Thanks for the comment 2na :)

        Thanks for they quick reply.

        I don’t mind taking the time to get used to it. My biggest issue is the price…

        Guess it’ll be this one or a Kinesis, currently using the Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000, I really like it at first, but know I feel like the keys are very hard to press and the mouse is to far to the right, they should cancel the numeric section.

        Any other recommendations?

          No worries :) As far as I know the TECK, Kinesis Advantage and Ergo Dox are the big names in terms of mechanical ergonomic keyboards.

        May I ask why you’d returned it?
        I ordered one yesterday so finger crossed that it will arrive without any issues (hardware that is) to Belgium.

          Hi BigZ,

          It was a product sample, so I couldn’t keep it forever. I believe in this case it was needed as a demonstration unit for trade shows and the like :) Just to reiterate, there was no physical issue with the unit – it was just that I only had a limited time to use it.

          Cheers,

          Will

            Hi William,

            Thank you very much for your reply. Can’t wait ’till I get my fingers on this keyboard.
