Great/useless keyboard

Joe L., Newegg
7 August 2014
  • Pros: Great key feel, and the keyboard sits at a good height
  • Cons: "Enter" key on the keypad broke after three months or so. That shouldn't happen, and renders the keyboard unsuitable if you have much data entry to accomplish.

Revising Previous Review

Billy N., Newegg
16 June 2014
  • Pros: I just had to update my previous review. No, I haven't yet gotten my offices, but you'll note that I've updated my review from a 4 to a 5. It got a 4 previously for not having any sort of reference on the "J" and "F" keys, but silly me, it just took me a little bit to find it. Turns out the "J" and "F" keys have more curvature, a deeper "concaveness" if you will, than every other key. Now that I know this, I'm good. Go Cherry!

Climbing the corporate ladder

Billy N., Newegg
12 June 2014
  • Summary: I'll be CEO in no time.
  • Pros: Perfect keyboard. I'm in a cubicle style environment and I'm deserving of an office. With this keyboard, they are going to shove me into an office within days. No one can stand the sound of this thing nor the grin on my face. Upper management, here I come. I actually bought two of these since I have two cubicles in two different cities. I'm expecting two offices within the week. Success 101: If you can't earn your way into an office .... annoy your way into an office....
  • Cons: No reference marks on the "J" and "F" keys ... really? This thing cost just short of a C-note, has absolutely no frills ... no extra LEDs, no raised fonts, it's not wireless, it doesn't roll up - nothing. The least they could have given me was index references on the "J" and "F" keys. This is why this keyboard gets only 4 stars. However, they'll be forced to up my salary once I get my two offices, and then I can pay someone to put little nubs on my "J" and "F" keys.

Best Keyboard on the Planet

James B., Newegg
3 April 2014
  • Pros: For anyone typing code, there is no better keyboard on the planet.
  • Cons: I wish this keyboard was offered without labels. This is the exact keyboard Das Keyboard used in their previous generation of keyboard without any labels. I purchased my first Das Keyboard without labels about 8 years ago. It took me two weeks to train myself to stop looking down at the keyboard for a label. Once I trained myself to stop looking down, my typing speed increased by 30-40% over the next few months.

Reminds me of my old IBM keyboard

Johnathan C., Newegg
4 November 2013
  • Summary: Great keyboard if your looking for something basic and great for typing more than anything. Reminds me of my old huge IBM I use to have, except even better when it comes to typing.
  • Pros: -Great Feel For Typing, feels fast and responsive -Basic, no media keys, just a keyboard -Click but not overally loud, compared to old IBM keyboards
  • Cons: -No "nub" on the two home row keys where your pointer fingures sit. Use to it with most keyboards I use, though really I'm living without it just fine.

its like those old school IBM keyboards in sound

CardinalB, Amazon
4 weeks ago
  • Summary: This is a relatively cheap mechanical keyboard and makes typing a dream with its clickety clicking sounds and positive feedback, its like those old school IBM keyboards in sound. However, do not buy this product to use in an office environment, or in your house with others about. While the clicking is strangely satisfying this is not an experience that is shared by others in the room, its loud and its annoying!

Disapointing

Seira Kronn, Amazon
5 January 2015
  • Summary: Product arrived partially broken and had to be returned so I'm putting in 2 rather than 1 stars as perhaps the broken nature of the unit biased my opinion further. I don't consider the break to be a general fault to the model as Cherry is otherwise a very reliable brand. Either way, the board arrived with several keys inconsistently registering presses and the spacebar often refusing to move.

Nice feel but noisy!

S. Simmonds, Amazon
3 January 2015
  • Summary: Nice mechanical keyboard - quite a big footprint though - the keys on this are quite noisy - unless you like to make lots of clatter, I would go for the quieter versions of this keyboard. Keyboard is actually cream not white.

Typos be gone!

Greywolf, Amazon
9 December 2014
  • Summary: My typing accuracy has definitely improved. The key action is just excellent. I started in computing using IBM keyboards, so the sound and feel of theis Cherry keyboard says "quality" to me. Expensive, but worth it. Note: This keyboard has no multimedia keys, and I miss them (slightly), but I will set up some hotkeys as soon as I can find out how to do that.
