Brilliant.... I'll even say better than my Unicomp
22 January 2014
Summary: This is the 1st time I've written an Amazon review (I think). I never thought I'd get so excited about a keyboard... after all... its just a keyboard right? I have a Unicomp Customiser I use on my rig at home for gaming... I bought this one for work as I was fed up with the crappy membrane keyboards that come with systems now. This Cherry keyboard is a pleasure to type on... I'll even say I like it more than my Unicomp...
Summary: I bought this keyboard in June 2011, so as of this review I've had it nearly 2 and a half years. It's held up perfectly, despite the occasional bit of abuse (thumping it in frustration). It still feels just like new, and the version I got, with Blue switches, really is lovely to type on.
Summary: The primary feature of this keyboard is of course the Cherry MX Blue keyswitches. Perhaps you could say they are its 'key' selling point... They feel great, and they sound great. I've just finished my first morning of editing video on this keyboard and I can definitely say that it feels a LOT nicer to work on than the Apple keyboard, or any other non-mechanical keyboard for that matter.
Very nice keyboard! Good feel and quick to type on

Summary: The keyboard has such a nice feel to the keys and the action used to press the keys leaves very few presses in error. It has increased my typing speed at work where I use it. Many complement my fast typing, which they didn't before I got the keyboard. One of the reasons is that they now more clearly distern that I'm typing because the keyboard is a little more noisy in use compared with rubber-dome keyboards.
Summary: I'm a writer and I love the feel of the key response, nice and reassuring when typing for hours on end. The clicks also warn the rest of the family that Mum's working, so don't get between me and my manuscript. Could be annoying if you hafve to sit and listen to someone else using this, but I love it as a user. Note I don't use this for games, so read other reviews for that aspect.
Summary: I used mechanical keyboards way back. I can't understand how I ended up switching to membranes - probably because they were bundled with PCs and/or were cheap. I needed a new keyboard, as my old Logitech had keys with the lettering gone and I was fed up of painting them back. So I thought I'd go back to a mech keyboard and Cherry are the ones who make the switches. I' hugely impressed with the G80. It's simple, unpretentious.
