Bottom line: they’re both great products, but you may be happier with one or the other depending on what you’re looking for! Both boards use the extremely powerful and flexible QMK firmware. If you want a fully-assembled keyboard that you can just plug in and start typing on, the Planck EZ is probably for you. If you’re a hardware modder (or want to start), then the OLKB Planck is probably more your style.
