All I had to do was put the keycaps on where I wanted them, plug it in and bring up the Via web app and I was off and running setting up my key maps and layers. It is so nice to dive into the world of custom keyboards without having to reckon with my lack of soldering skills or patience lol.
Solid build quality. And the track point is amazing allowing pointing without leaving the keyboard. Just need to map a key as mouse click 1 in Via.
Wonderful experience overall. (Typed with said keyboard ;P)
I bought a trackball Ferris Sweep. Lovely build. Looks like it was made in a factory. Immense attention to detail and I LOVE the trackball. Also the seller was helpful throughout the process and responded quickly to any questions I had. Would highly recommend!
this keyboard feels very sturdy. yet still compact. VIA is very easy to use and QMK is not too hard to use if you have any programming experience, but necessary to adjust the trackball settings
I don't have the time, tools, or ability to solder up my own keyboard kit, and I always wanted one with built in mouse functionality, so when I found this site, I was blown away and immediately purchased a Corne Low profile with a trackpoint on the right. However I kept researching and ended up emailing multiple times to adjust my order,
He was super friendly the entire time and even offered helpful advice here and there to point me in the right direction, and ended up with a completely different setup. A Corne Choc with a trackpoint on the left, and different colored covers. Once I received the board, the service didn't end, through his discord, he helped me get QMK setup and running so I could reprogram things to my liking, and I am now happily programming away with a sleek and beautiful board, on a much cleaner desktop, having no experience with any of it prior! I highly recommend HolyKeebs!
I’ve built many different sweeps, but decided to pull the trigger and buy this prebuilt for the trackpoint. This is by far my favorite one. Communication with the seller about shipping and setup was great and almost immediate. If you’re on the fence, you will not regret this purchase. I was able to move my pre-existing key map and use the provided build commands with no issues. I was able to add scrolling through qmk macros on a layer, along with mouse button keys; so there is no need for me to revisit a separate pointing device. All in all, I’m very happy!
I got this kit from HolyKeebs recently, and I am very happy with it. Everything came presoldered, I just had to get the switches and assemble the case. The small trackball works great too. Looking forward to more cool ergo keebs and kits :)
Very happy with my first ergonomic keyboard! Also first time having clicky switches (choc whites) and low profile switches. The trackpoint works as expected; however, the mouse cursor would move very slightly on its own even if my finger is not touching it. It takes a minute or two after plugging in the keyboard before the keyboard would be responsive. The keyboard key mapping layout was really easy to program using the usevia.app GUI on a chrome browser. Would be nice if there are instructions about which USB-C to plug into because I got it wrong at first as a total noob. Thanks for making this keyboard for me! :)
l wanted to cut down on devices that I bring during my daily commute, having a trackball integrated into my ferris sweep is the perfect solution. The pimoroni trackball module is a good entry point for beginner's like myself.
I also want to emphasize that the level of support I got was amazing - all my inquiries regarding the setup down to the qmk firmware installation were answered. I couldn't have done it on my own.
I'm very new to ergonomic/split keyboards and even made a few rookie mistakes when originally ordering. They were willing to help me with part selection and the keyboard I received works great. Highly recommend for any newcomers looking into split keyboards.
I bought a trackball choc Corne mango yellow and it turned out better looking than I thought. It was also easier to pick up than I thought but I will say you need to have good memorization. The trackball is small but works very well, much better than I thought! Very good product!
Incredible keyboard and build quality, Very responsive to all my emails and holykeebs reached out to me to clarify order details. This is my end game keyboard 10/10 recommend
Purchased Lily58 a few weeks ago. The keyboard is great. I managed to configure everything I needed. Excellent quality.
After a bit of support to get qmk up and running with the new pcb it looks and works great 😊
Idan responds really fast, and very friendly.
If you have any questions just talk to his for recommendations!
After using a regular sweep for a while I saw this product and said that I need to stop moving my hand to my mouse everytime.
the keyboard came like it was made in a factory, every solder was perfect and the product finish looked great!
and the trackball is amazing, and I find it really useful.
I Can't recommend this product and Idan enough!
