There are those who prefer an ergonomic keyboard design over the standard model, which means most of the new mechanical keyboards do not meet their needs. Kinesis offers an alternative, the Freestyle Edge available with Cherry MX Red, Bue or Brown switches and a separated keypad. You do not need install the SmartSet App to use this keyboard but it is worth it as you can reprogram every keys function, add up to three macros on the appropriate keys, with delays, and of course to control your RGBs. Check TechPowerUp for the full review.

With a split keyboard configuration, extensive customization options, and nothing but Cherry mechanical switches, the Freestyle Edge offers a new take on ergonomics for gamers and casual end users alike."
