Great Work Keyboard


-I miss it, I wish I could get this board repaired, it treated me well.

-Very work appropriate and professional looking -Whisper Quiet keys, which keeps my coworkers happy -Really good feel and fit to my hands, the keys were not mechanical, but still felt novel, and enjoyable. I also have another gaming keyboard at home...

-I spilled a cup of water right on it, just dumped it on, when I was moving my cup and it slipped out of my hands and poured all over it. Not sure if it was spill-resistant or not, but it's definitely not waterproof.

Very easy action on the keys, my older but decent-feeling (non-mechanical) Logitech keyboards have a much stiffer tactile bump that I didn't think was stiff until I got used to typing on the Cherry. Click isn't too loud IMO, but since I live alone I'm...

Not inexpensive

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...

Eggcellent Keyboard


I expect this keyboard to last for a long time. The laser inscribed keys will not wear like the OEM keyboards and it is faster to type on.

I purchased this keyboard to replace the OEM keyboard on our primary home desktop that my wife uses often. She is a very proficient typist and we had worn many of the inscriptions off the keys. The Cherry keyboard is a delight to type on and my wife is...

This keyboard is more expensive than some of the others, but then again you get what you pay for.

Great Keyborad


Very nice keyboard. Has comfortable, sturdy keys. The keyboard connected quickly to my iPad and the battery last a long time. It was worth $39.99.

If they had these with a back-lit option that would be amazing!!

We use Cherry Keyboards for our marketing company. We use them in outdoor locations (NOT WATER PROOF). We have close to 500,000 key stokes a weekend making up close to 500 different users a day. These are built to last!! Touch pad is very responsive...

For use in a kiosk application the USB cable is to short.

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.
