Great/useless keyboard

 

Great key feel, and the keyboard sits at a good height

Enter" key on the keypad broke after three months or so. That shouldn't happen, and renders the keyboard unsuitable if you have much data entry to accomplish

Revising Previous Review

 

I just had to update my previous review. No, I haven't yet gotten my offices, but you'll note that I've updated my review from a 4 to a 5. It got a 4 previously for not having any sort of reference on the "J" and "F" keys, but silly me, it just took me...

Climbing the corporate ladder

 

I'll be CEO in no time.

Perfect keyboard. I'm in a cubicle style environment and I'm deserving of an office. With this keyboard, they are going to shove me into an office within days. No one can stand the sound of this thing nor the grin on my face. Upper management, here I...

No reference marks on the "J" and "F" keys ... really? This thing cost just short of a C-note, has absolutely no frills ... no extra LEDs, no raised fonts, it's not wireless, it doesn't roll up - nothing. The least they could have given me was index...

Great Keyborad

Very Pleased with the service

Excellent small keyboard!

 

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...

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...

The one key I don't like is the Enter key. Hard to find with my right pinky finger. A very minor quibble

Awesome keyboard in some ways

 

If the keys were illuminated then this keyboard would be perfect because then the fading of the key labels would not come into play. I suppose if you're the type that NEVER looks at the keys it might not matter to you that the keys fade, but I still...

Excellent tactile feel! At first the keys were a little too hard to press but once I got used to them, I found I like this keyboard better than any other keyboard I've used. I hate mushy keys and this keyboard's keys are not that. I have had my...

It can seem loud at times. The labeling on the keys is cheap and have faded away on my most used keys! I got mine somewhat cheaper but there's no way that they should fade on a keyboard this expensive. I have had a keyboard that cost almost one tenth...

VGA Cable Great Price

 

We got this for our church. I didn't buy the signal booster with it thanks to PastorMatt's review. It worked just fine. Thanks

Product Specifications

Today's keyboard is assuming its place as the link for other peripherals to the PC terminal. Built-in magnetic-stripe and smart card readers, biometric fingerprint scanners and bar code scanners are becoming more commonplace, as retailers demand space-saving configurations. So too are port connections for other devices, allowing the keyboard to act as the wedge interface for separate scanners and card readers. Cherry Electrical Products offers the new G80-8116 full-size keyboard that integrates both a magnetic stripe reader and a touchpad with two mouse buttons directly into the keyboard. These space-saving, point-of-sale features make the G80-8116 ideal for POS, credit card, loyalty program, healthcare, banking, hospitality, inventory control, and membership/ID applications. The two-button touch pad is a unique new Cherry feature that eliminates the need for a separate, or standalone, pointing device at a POS workstation. Not only does this offer a significant space saving at the terminal, it also simplifies communication between the operator and the PC. To move the cursor, the operator need only slide their finger across the touch pad; to select items, the operator simply taps the touchpad. The ruggedly designed, lightweight keyboard consists of 120 keys. The keyboard's reliability is enhanced through use of Cherry MX switches. These key switches have uniquely constructed solid gold "cross-point" contacts that provide maximum contact pressure. They are also configured to provide minimum contact closure interference from foreign particles. Use of Cherry MX switches provides each key with a service life of greater than 50 million keystrokes.
