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: I love the clickyness of this keyboard. Only one thing keeps it from getting 5 stars. There is no way to know if you are on the home keys. In general, there are usually raised dots on the j and f keys on good keyboards to find the home keys without having to look.
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.
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.
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).
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.
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.
Summary: Solide verabeitete Tastatur, gut für den Einstieg in mechanische Tastaturen geeignet. Der Mangel an Orientierungshilfen für 10-Finger-Tipper (diese Noppen auf zwei Tasten links und rechts) ist ein Problem für den, der zufällig diese Schreibweise erlernen möchte.
