## Is it worth it?

Yes, definitely yes. Most of my gripes about the Atreus are compromises that I have to make in order to get the portability I want; the price tag is significantly less than other pre-built, ergonomic, ultra-customizable keyboards that I looked at (e.g., the [Moonlander](https://www.zsa.io/moonlander/)); and the good parts are really great. I'm happy with my purchase and enjoy typing on it every day!

## Update, two and a half years later

I still love my Atreus. I now have two, because it's nice to have one at my work desk and one that I can keep in my backpack for on-the-go use. I still only use 34 of the keys, which is fine by me. I'm not bothered by the column angles any more, and I've come to appreciate the fact that it's a unibody board -- split boards can be a bit of a hassle. I sometimes wish it were wireless, just to make pulling it out to use with my laptop quicker, but I also enjoy never charging it. Overall, I'm a very happy typist.
