Description

The Uni v4 keyboard offers an efficient, minimalistic design with an ortholinear layout and fast Gateron Clear switches with only 35g actuation force. Its sleek black PCB and white keycaps are complemented by the Plover bird artwork on the backplate. Built for fast stenography, the Uni v4 is ideal for use with the Plover software.

Features:

  • No assembly required
  • You can use your normal keyboard and the Uni at the same time
  • Each switch's spring weight is 35 grams, and you can replace the springs without desoldering.
  • Made to work with Plover's Gemini PR machine settings, see the video for more info
  • Composed of three layers: backplate, PCB, and switch plate.
  • Much cheaper than a traditional steno/stenography machine.
  • US Design Patent Granted
Includes:
  • Nice packaging
  • The Uni v4 keyboard
  • USB-C to USB-A cable

  • Thumb numbers
  • Split S

After a year’s use, still works well, aside from one key sticking and the little rubber feet fell off! Easy fixes however.

HIGH QUALITY STENO KEYBOARD!

This is perfect for people who are interested in studying Machine shorthand. The keyboard is just perfect as it is, it has a minimalist design and it feels light to press the keys. The shipping was fast(it only took 11 days to ship from US to PH)
THANK YOU! to the makers of this keyboard for making it possible to learn machine steno without having to buy a VERY EXPENSIVE steno machine that costs 50x more than this.
