Summary: I've used G84-4100(Old model) for a long time. and i purchased 2 (new model) more. Because i thought that i am going to be with this keyboard for my remain life New model removed few keys so it has more rooms on bottom key column. But It still has few problem that specially right shift, Back space, enter keys are so small. but it is okay when you used to. At the first time i just bought it as small sized keyboard for my business trip.
Summary: I purchased one of these for somebody else who didn't quite have enough space for a 'full size' keyboard. Nice quality product, substantial build quality, with a slightly 'springy' key action,not as 'fast' and responsive as the logitech keyboards. For continuous use throughout the day, this wouldn't be my choice.
Summary: I use this keyboard everyday, 8 hours a day. It is very nice. The keys are easy to press. All of the keys are easy to use except that the ~ and ` keys are in an odd place, but I learned to used with with out much trouble. I use it on a Linux system so I am not sure if Windows users will miss the menu and window buttons. I use the keys so much that the letters rub off, but I have this problem with all keyboards.
Summary: Very nice product, though hard to see why Cherry charge so much for a keyboard which has effectively had things removed, not bolted on! Be wary of the claim that it is PS/2. It is USB, so don't think you have to buy an adapter, as I did.
Summary: This keyboard is the perfect size for a small desk. The keys are pretty much normal size, and the only thing different from a regular size keyboard is that the number pad is absent and the pg dn etc. keys are rearranged to take up less space. If you don't need a number pad, as I don't, this is a wonderful keyboard. I've been using it now for three weeks, and I'm so glad I found it.
Summary: Ignore the other slightly disinterested review. These are the best thing for your desk; beautiful key action; you can shove them out of the way when you have other stuff to do; and if you use illustrator, and need to use lots of key shortcuts, you can cover the whole keyboard with one hand, and mouse away with the other. Brilliantly fast, brillaintly convienient. Get rid of that sunken aircraft carrier bunging up your desk; get one of these.
Summary: Some PC systems situations just do not need a huge full-sized keyboard. Server room computers, Home Theater PC, college dorm room PCs, Car MP3 serving laptops or anywhere space is at a premium. This diminuitive keyboard has very nice tactile feel to the keys with functions similiar to those found on laptop keyboards - a FN key to enable the numeric key layout for extended number entry for instance.
Summary: Switch types are always going to be something of a personal preference, but I never got on with the Cherry ML's on this - they're sticky, scratchy, and require a fair bit of pressure to actuate, which means they always end up bottoming out with a decidedly unsatisfying plasticy clack. They also don't take well to being hit off-center, which only makes adapting to the cramped layout more unpleasant.
Summary: Great feeling and build quality. Love the way the keys feel but its just to small to work with for me (6ft er with big hands). I love the ML keys tho. Keys are cramped together and I kept missing important keys like Enter and backspace.
