    "The ErgoDox EZ is by far the best keyboard with customizable hardware I have found to date. I love that I've been able to customize the keycaps and the switches, it makes using it so much more fluid and intuitive, not to mention comfortable. My typing speed and accuracy has increased dramatically. I hate it now when I go somewhere like the library or my friends' house and have to use an old school keyboard. haha"

    A DIY keyboard that users will build on their own ensures that the keyboard is exactly the way they want it. Users can either source parts from existing keyboards or build them themselves. Price will vary depending on the modifications.
