Comparison: Planck EZ vs. OLKB Planck

Plug it in and go

No matter where you land, the Planck EZ takes seconds to set up. Pull it out, plug it in, and you’re in business. You don’t even need a desk: It’s small enough to rest on top of your laptop keyboard.

Using it is a snap too: The design requires minimal finger and wrist movement. Every key is within easy reach.

The Planck EZ is the ultimate in portability. It is a compact and powerful beast of a keyboard, one we're proud to bring to the world.

All of your keys, in less space

Planck EZ KeyboardPlanck EZ Keyboard

Classic

If we asked you to close your eyes and draw a keyboard from memory, you’d probably end up with something that’s remarkably close to the Planck EZ.

The Planck EZ takes that archetypal notion of what a keyboard is, and shrinks it down to its compact and powerful essentials: Small, but mighty.

Ortholinear

Jack Humbert, the creator of the original Planck, took the notion of ortholinear keyboards and made it wildly popular among the tight-knit community of keyboard enthusiasts.

Ortholinear keyboards are popular because they work: Having a grid of keys minimizes finger movement and can help when learning the layout.

The Planck EZ is the mature, warranty-backed iteration of an idea that started as a group-buy for two metal plates back in 2014 — it's everything I've been wanting to put into the Planck and more.

Floating keyswitches over a thin base

The Planck EZ celebrates the mechanical switches that power your every keystroke. They’re firmly mounted within a supportive framework, but the top half of each keyswitch floats over the board, there for all to see.

Change it yourself

Gain ultimate control over your hardware: Change any keyswitch on your Planck EZ, at any time, without soldering and without voiding the warranty. Your keyboard, your switches, your way.

A wide selection

Should your keyboard be clicky, or whisper-quiet? Are you an energetic typist, or do your fingers effortlessly glide over the keys, barely touching as you commit your ideas to writing?

No matter your personal typing style, we’ve got the perfect keyswitch to support it. Pick what works for you.

Works with both USB Type C and Type A

The Planck EZ ships with a high-quality USB C-to-C cable. We also included a dongle in the box, letting you convert one end of the cable into a USB type-A plug in case you‘re not rocking Type C just yet.

One special little key

One special little key

The Planck EZ ships with a number of custom keycaps we‘ve created specifically for the board. One of these is extra-special, though: The QMK keycap.

This little cap sits on the bottom-left corner of the board, and celebrates the flexibility of the board. You could program it to do whatever you like: Control the lights, switch layers, send out a dynamic macro, and more. All of the keys are programmable in this way of course — but we wanted one little key to celebrate the open-source nature of the firmware.

This board talks back

The Planck EZ incorporates two bright status LEDs, as well as a buzzer that can play Gameboy-style chiptunes. Of course, you can also keep it completely silent (but where’s the fun in that?).

Open-source firmware

Open-source firmware

The powerful firmware that runs on the Moonlander is called QMK, and it’s open-source, available on GitHub.

While you can use our configurator to quickly put together a layout, having complete access to the firmware source code means you can dig as deep as you’d like.

Streamlined configuration

Streamlined configuration

You don't have to code to customize the Moonlander. Oryx is free, simple, and powerful. Point-and-click your way to the ultimate keyboard layout.

Multiple layers

Multiple layers

Need easy access to your F-keys?

Want a mechanical numpad?

Need programmer-friendly
symbols right on your home row?

Layers make it easy. It's like a Shift key on steroids.

Remap any key

Remap any key

Don't like where something is? Move it. All keys can be remapped and reassigned, and most people iterate over their layouts until they're just right.

Mouse control

Mouse control

The Moonlander can emulate a mouse. Tap, tap, point, click. You decide where the mouse keys are.

Combo keys

Combo keys

Create dedicated keys for those
RSI-inducing key combinations found in industry-standard software. Ctrl+Shift+Alt+W suddenly takes just a single keystroke.

Dual-function keys

Dual-function keys

Tap your Z key, and it sends the letter Z as expected. Press and hold it down, and it becomes Alt.

That’s the power of dual-function keys.
When tapped, they send a character. When held, they act as a modifier. Alt, Ctrl, and friends have never been easier to reach.

Space Cadet Shift

Space Cadet Shift

Use your Shift key for more. Press and hold it, and it acts as Shift. Tap it on its own, and it sends parentheses — open parens on the Left Shift, close parens on the Right Shift.

This feature not enabled by default but is trivial to enable using Oryx.

Dedicated Hyper and Meh keys

Dedicated Hyper and Meh keys

Unlock the power of system-wide shortcuts.

Hyper is Ctrl+Shift+Alt+Win/Cmd, while Meh is Ctrl+Shift+Alt. No sane application on your machine uses these, which means you get free system-wide shortcuts.

Hyper+S will never conflict with anything on your system.

On-the-fly macros

On-the-fly macros

Record macros on the fly into one of two slots, then play them back with a keystroke. They're ephemeral and local — removed when the keyboard loses power.

Works with Windows, macOS, and Linux.
No special drivers or resident software needed.
