Summary: It was not any quieter than my Toshiba Satellite Pro Keyboard. I just ordered one of those rubber keyboards you rollup and I will try that. I am not saying its not a quiet keyboard, just not quiet enough. It probably is a decent keyboard but I returned it. I need a very quiet keyboard so I do not wake my roommate.
Summary: Okay, so this keyboard does not have all the fancy bells and whistles like many Logitech and Microsoft keyboards; however, Cherry keyboards are a leader in office, industrial, and medical applications. The switches used in these keyboards are proven and tested to be durable. This keyboard itself is a slim model and has low profile ultra quiet keys. They switches are very quiet, but they are also very responsive and have a fast travel.
Summary: I took this out of the box, plugged it in, and off we went. I bought this keyboard specifically because I do a lot of note taking in a public environment (I'm a District Clerk for a large Sanitary District). I heard from several regular attendees of our meetings that my typing noise was distracting to them. This keyboard will definitely not be a distraction. Wow, is it ever quiet. I love it. I'm only giving 4 stars right now because it's fresh out of the box.
Summary: I use these for pc repair. The USB and ps2 support make them great. They type like a good quality laptop keyboard and are very quiet. Havn't had trouble with them yet and I've been using a few for over a year now.
Summary: I had a Dell keyboard provided to me at work that actually came with the desktop and even though it was brand new the performance was so bad that even though I am touch typist I used to miss characters while typing. So I ordered this one since its more closer to a laptop keyboard. Must say really good product.

Summary: I changed more keyboards than I remember. Seems like I was looking for perfection. Seems like I found it. Even if it will break in a month, I'll get a new one. In fact, I think I'll get a replacement for the future, in case it will be discontinued.
