Meticulously designed from the ground up to have the utmost reliability and a clean minimalistic look; the Keyed Up Labs ES-87 keyboard's rigid construction uniquely maximizes the tactility and durability of authentic Cherry MX mechanical key switches while offering features and modern styling that appeals to power users and professionals. Whether you're a serious writer, a competitive gamer, or a jack of all trades; you can depend on the KUL ES-87.

Also, the reduced "Tenkeyless" layout of the ES-87 embraces a new-ergonomic standard by dispensing with the often unused tenkeypad and allowing operation of a pointing device nearer to the body; thereby reducing shoulder strain. Multi-OS compatibility along with modern styling and unique color options make the ES-87 an inspiring and competent addition to any home or office workstation.

Keyed Up Labs (aka KUL) bills itself as making the highest reliability Cherry MX keyboards on the market. Disappointed with the high failure rates of available mechanical keyboards on the market that do not have the build quality to maximize the 50 million keypress potential of Cherry MX switches; KUL set out to create a keyboard that could do these switches justice. Bringing their first product to market in 2014, KUL intends to lead the market in high-quality keyboard design for professionals who depend on keyboard performance.
