Let me share my experience with you regarding Ergodox. It's incredibly cool! To 
be able to create your own programmable
keyboard is awesome. I built one with a custom case and mechanical switches, 
and it's great. Custom key layouts in the
firmware are awesome!

Until I discovered my hands don't fit it. I don't regret building it, but I 
can't use my lovely device I spent quite a
bit to make. Learn from my experience and test one hands on first.

On that note, I've been using a Kinesis Freestyle with a long binding cable for 
many years, and they just released a
mechanical switch version (Freestyle Edge? It's gaming branded) that also 
includes updates like layers. It's perfect and
exactly what I wanted.

Perhaps you should consider one of them. I'm very impressed with it.
