Comparing our keys against the Kinesis ABS keys
- Deep dish DSA Home One of the best things about the stock Kinesis ABS keycaps was the deep dish homing row. They have a nice groove to them that allows you to quickly find your place while typing. Luckily the grey deep dish DSA profile gives us the same features as the stock homing row.
- Side keys in each keywell (Tab, Shift, Caps, +=) These are the 8 keys on the edge of the keywells. They are slightly shorter in height than the stock Kinesis profile.
- Thumb cluster The thumb cluster SPACE key has a sharper angle than the Kinesis profile. The remaining keys are slightly shorter in height.
- Keywell individual keys The last picture at the bottom gives a profile view of all 1x keys and how they compare to the stock Kinesis keys. You can see the profile is slightly shorter in height than the Kinesis and the row 4 keys are at a steeper angle.
