  • Summary: Maybe if I sprayed WD40 in the keys...it might be smoother? So disappointed!
  • Pros: it has keys
  • Cons: If you want a $20 keyboard (that's stretching it) and throw away the other $49 -- choose this!

Great keyboard; just a little cramped

Gregory C., Newegg

  • Summary: I brought the keyboard with me to work for a week so I could get used to it. That helped a lot.
  • Pros: Key action is great. This is my first mechanical switch keyboard, and I'll never go back.
  • Cons: Biggest problem is the placement of the 'ENTER' and '/' key. My pinky still hits the '/' at least 50% of the time. It feels a little cramped compared to a full-size keyboard, but just slightly. A few days of constant use and it'll feel pretty normal.

Excellent small keyboard!

  • Summary: Anyone the loves small boards will love this board. The one other small board to consider is the I-Rocks KR-6820E-BK 104 keys, but it has mushier key action and is slightly larger. Reason I mention it, is that the I-Rocks costs less than half what this Cherry costs. Cherry size: 5.5" x 14.7" I-Rocks size: 6.25" x 15.5" Whatever the extra 104th key is (on the I-Rocks board), I haven't missed it so far.
  • Pros: 1. Very good key action. 2. Surprisingly small, yet doesn't feel small. See Other Thoughts. 3. Good key placement, with the proviso that all small boards have odd key placement. See Other Thoughts. 4. Two Ctrl keys (and Alt keys too), and I like the left Alt key placement of this board. 5. Love how they very slightly offset the 4 arrow keys.
  • Cons: The one key I don't like is the Enter key. Hard to find with my right pinky finger. A very minor quibble.

  • Excerpt: Ich habe mir die XS Complete bestellt, da ich gute Erfahrungen mit der G84 Serie von Cherry hatte... aber im Detail: Vorteile: - die ML-Switches bei den Tasten geben ein gutes Feedback und sind sehr exakt beim Betätigen - das Layout ist für eine Compact-Tastatur nicht zu sehr eingeschränkt, der Ziffernblock ist vollständig vorhanden - die Tasten sind per Software mit Makros oder Funktionen programmierbar Nachteile: - Das Gehäsue macht eine sehr minderwertigen Eindruck,...

Bon produit

  • Summary: Le prix est la rançon de la technologie mécanique ainsi que de l'effort de compacité dans la conception de ce clavier. Il est très plat et se passe bien de repose-poignet. Les touches sont bien un peu plus petites que la normale et les interrupteurs de celles-ci, de type cherry ML, présentent les défauts d'une course moindre, d'une souplesse déficiente dans les coins ainsi que d'une plus faible durée de vie que leurs équivalents MX chez le même constructeur.
