Where to Buy

About $450 on massdrop. Not readily available. And you have to build it yourself, including soldiering the electronics.

Alternatives

If this is about $250, and pre-assembled, then i think it's the best keyboard, beats Ergodox Keyboard

VE.A got got 10 extra macro keys, and driverless key programing. Those are killer features. Plus, full F1 to F12 function keys, and arrow keys etc. And split space bar, and many thumb keys.

But at $450, plus you have to assemble it yourself, then it's not worth it. Lots other keyboards has better value/price ratio.

and buy a good programable keypad for $80. that gets you dedicated arrow keys and function keys.
