Good mechanical keyboard

 

I don't use this keyboard daily as I didn't really enjoy the layout for typing I kept making too many mistakes. I do use a Cherry G84-5500 everyday though for my living room computer because of the attached touch mouse pad, very happy with the touch...

Mechanical keyboard at a decent price Has all the keys Also has the euro symbol but can't figure how to use it Very small form factor which could also act as a con Not much travel force to activate the keys

Small form factor hard to get used to Different layout from most other keyboards Not easy to get use too

overpriced

 

Maybe if I sprayed WD40 in the keys...it might be smoother? So disappointed!

it has keys

If you want a $20 keyboard (that's stretching it) and throw away the other $49 -- choose this!

ML not MX switches

 

Be careful when using the catalog. Some specs are wrong.

I emailed Cherry company and recieved a reply almost immediately, that the 4100 series of keyboards use ML and not MX switches. The catalog is wrong when it says 50 million activations, it reads 20 million on the spec sheet on next page. ML are...

Just be aware they are not MX

Nice, but only for windows

 

It's a programmable keypad, which gives you much greater control over input. It can sit next to your main keyboard, not taking up too much space, but giving you vastly increased key entry capabilities

Unlike many of the other Cherry programmable keyboards, it stores the key definitions in the PC (i.e., in Windows), not in the device, so it's not usable in Linux

Great keyboard; just a little cramped

Great keyboard; just a little cramped

 

I brought the keyboard with me to work for a week so I could get used to it. That helped a lot.

Key action is great. This is my first mechanical switch keyboard, and I'll never go back.

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.
