  • Summary: This is generally a introduction to mechanical keyboards. generally id suggest getting a higher end product in the first place, but this isnt a bad choice for someone who is familiarizing themselves with a mech keyboard to begin with
  • Pros: -its a beginner's entry to the mechanical keyboard world, -its rather cheap but not the cheapest ive seen some of the keyboards out there on a good sale
  • Cons: -no steel backpalte changes how the keyboard feels overall, -isnt as sturdy as a good mechanical keyboard, but it is better than the generic membrane out on the market

  • Summary: OK, so these Cherry 3800 keyboards don't exactly exude quality like some of the more expensive offerings (eg, Das) due to their all-ABS plastic construction and lack of heft. Furthermore they don't have any extras that their more expensive counterparts do (ie, no USB hub/macro keys/backlighting/etc). However, comfort wise and typing functionality wise, they are every bit as good as any mechanical keyboard I've tried (ie, Das, Razer Blackwidow).
  • Pros: Cherry switches are Cherry switches, Relatively inexpensive/good value when on sale
  • Cons: Flimsier than many other more expensive mech keyboards, No media/macro/backlighting/USB hub

  • Summary: I took my first step back into mechanical keyboard territory with the steelseries 7G and its MX Black keyswitches. There's a link to the reviews of that at the end of this one. I decided to pick up two of these Cherry MX-Board 2.0 models in a recent sale, one with blue switches and one with brown.
  • Pros: -cheap, especially if you only want the switches, -a no-nonsense step up from trashy rubber-dome value brands
  • Cons: -does not include rear feet, -spacing between key groups is not full-sized

  • Summary: I like the keyboard overall but the construction of the chassis is lacking. For example grab both ends of the keyboard and one can easily deflect the chassis by gently twisting. Other than that it is a simply keyboard and that was what I was after.
  • Pros: cheaper than most mechanical keyboards, cheery mx brown switches
  • Cons: flimsy chassis

  • Summary: This is my first mechanical keyboard and I love it. Well worth the money if you do any amount of typing. Feels like the old white/beige IBM keyboards from back in the day.
  • Pros: Tactile feel, Basic keyboard (not a ton of bells and whistles)
  • Cons: None

  • Summary: I saw this on sale for 59.99 and jumped on it. Always wanted to try red switches and cherry has a reputation for making quality products. The actual keyboard just came in today and I've been using it for most of the afternoon. I am actually using it to type this review. So far I have to say that considering the price I paid it is a very high quality keyboard. Typing is comfortable despite what you may think by looking at the odd key shapes.
  • Pros: Cheap, Mechanical, High Build Quality
  • Cons: No PS/2 capability
