Summary: Pros * the keys have an awesome feel. lovely clicks. * sounds super loud, perfect to drown out the depressed moans of my coworkers Cons * the home keys don't have a bump on them. however the paint they used to write the letters is so bumpy that you can "braille" which letter you're on.
Summary: As others have stated, this item rides the coattails of more illustrious ancestors like the Model M, but in terms of build quality is the proverbial David to IBM's Goliath. Though not exactly flimsy, the plastic backplate means the Cherry will never win any awards for resilience or robustness. If you like your peripherals to feel as though they have been hewn from granite and designed to outlast your children, sorry, you'll need to spend more money.
Great switches, cheap build, annoying lack of nubs...

Summary: Superb tactile feedback from this keyboard, which has a lighter and crisper break to it than the old IBM Model M, but the build quality of the body is nothing like that masterpiece: it flexes, and feels light, cheap and creaky, where the Model M could've been used to beat someone to death with. The keys themselves are also made of an inferior, lighter plastic than the Model M's.
Summary: I just received this keyboard today, and it feels fairly good; nice action, the keys are a little noisy but nothing you couldn't get used to. However, this particular model comes with the German/Austrain QWERTZ layout so I will have to return it. It would have been nice to see some indication of this in the product description before buying this.
Summary: These keyboards do not have backplates (a steel plate to which the keys are mounted - this model is PCB mounted), so don't expect them to feel good under frantic typing especially if you bottom out a lot (like me) as the board will flex quite readily. The beige version has superior quality keycaps, laser etched PBT vs what I think is painted lettering on ABS on the black model. Their build quality is sufficient and the feet are decent and provide ok grip.
Summary: This keyboard has one big plus point: The quality of the key switches is noticeably good. I cannot tell you if you would like it, you need to try one out. After that, everything else is negative: The keyboard is very thick. At the front, the height is 21mm (not including the keys). I would prefer it to be about half of that. This does bother me in general use, but it depends on your natural wrist position.
Summary: Hallo, ich habe mir diese Tastatur (mit mx blue, den Tasten mit dem "Klick" ) gekauft, weil ich seit jeher mechanische Tastaturen verwende und auch schon mehrere G80-3000 bzw. G81-3000 im Einsatz habe/hatte. War bislang von der Verarbeitung und vom Schreibgefühl dieser Tastaturen hellauf begeistert! DIESE Neue (wurde wegen eines "Flüssigkeitsschadens" erforderlich.... normale Tastaturen und Cola sind inkompatibel....) jedoch enttäuscht mich etwas.
