Comparison: Glove80 vs Kinesis Advantage360 vs Moonlander vs Advantage2

To help users looking for ergonomic keyboards with the best ergonomics, we have compiled a comparison of three columnar contoured ergonomic keyboards (Glove80, Advantage360 Pro & Advantage2) and a popular flat columnar ergonomic keyboard (Moonlander Mk.1).

Ergonomic keyboards are important tools for maintaining the good health of keyboard users' hands and wrists. We are all unique with different hand sizes, shapes, habits, and needs. Ergonomic keyboards are not created equal; each has a different ergonomic design and suits different bodies and requirements.

Broadly speaking, ergonomic keyboards can be classified as:

  1. Columnar vs row staggered: Columnar keyboards are generally considered as more ergonomic
  2. Split vs non-split: Split means the left hand and right hand part of the keyboard are separated
  3. 3D contoured keywell vs 2D flat keyboard: The keys on a 2D flat keyboard are on the same plane. A keyboard with a 3D keywell has the keys arranged in a bowl shape shaped to human hands
However, beyond these three classifications, many ergonomic factors should be considered when making a purchase decision. We hope this table will help you make an informed choice.

This table is collated from publicly available and private information. We have tried our best to be accurate and objective. If the source of information is private, details are provided in the footnotes. If there are any inaccuracies, please inform us at support@moergo.com.
