Cherry MX Board 3.0 Keyboard Review


Today we're checking out one more, a business model, the MX Board 3.0. This flat top full Qwerty board isn't likely to grab your attention if you're a gamer.

– Solid Build Quality ; – Fast and Silent typing if laptop keyboards are your thing ; – Great for professional typing needs ; – Price

– Lack luster packaging could mean a damaged board upon arrival ; – Not great for gaming ; – Price

The MX Board 3.0 is not your top shelf, key feature after key feature, RGB everything flagship keyboard. What it is is a solidly built, solid performer, and a workhorse. I wouldn’t go so far as to call it utilitarian, but it is certainly wandering down...

Cherry MX Board 3.0 (Red)


It's no surprise that mechanical keyboards are the best type of keyboard there is on the market today. However, your choices are so abundant and the price range is even larger. What if you just want a normal keyboard that works? That's what Cherry is...

Cherry MX-Board 3.0 Review and Ratings


If you're shopping for the most bare-bones mechanical keyboard imaginable for office use, this is it, but it's not cheap. A choice of Cherry MX key-switch types is the main appeal.

Offered with four types of mechanical switch ; Easy typing feel, in MX Brown version we tested ; Semi-affordable, as mechanical keyboards go

Minimal curb appeal ; No included wrist rest, backlighting, or USB pass-through

We'd love to opine here about the myriad features we tested, what we thought of the keyboard's backlighting, and how handy the software was. Instead, we're left to simply report that as a keyboard, the MX-Board 3.0 works just as expected. But it’s so...

Cherry MX switches.

Lacks any extra features.

The MX-Board 3.0 can certainly do a job – just a very basic one. Sadly it is just lacking many features gamers desire with a mechanical keyboard.

Brown Key version


I ordered this keyboard from newegg via fleabay, where it DID have the full part number, G80-3850LXBEU-2 ... The listing here on Newegg's site only says MX Board 3.0 3850, but theres 4 different versions of the G80-3850, with 4 different types of MX...

the keys are a little noiser than I would have liked when I bottom them out, so I've ordered a bag of the red o-ring silencers for them. I wish they'd just sell the keyboard with them preinstalled

Would be nice to have the option for wrist support

Cherry Mx-board 3.0


As an arthritis and EDS sufferer, my fingers get sore on a "normal" keyboard in minutes. With this keyboard I can pretty much type indefinitely. It's that nice.

It's a bit pricey for a keyboard; that said competitive for a mechanical.

Cherry Mx-board 3.0


Butter smooth keys with consistent resistance to each press throughout the downstroke makes typing less tiring and more consistent. My first mechanical switch keyboard and very much worth it.

It lacks visual refinement and looks rather chunky rather akin to a Soviet industrial style.
