- Very affordable
- Full keyboard layout
- Low profile key caps
- Minimalistic design
- Cherry MX Blue switches... very clicky!
- Rubber feet on bottom do not provide much friction
- Not the highest of build quality (esp. when compared to brands like Filco, Ducky, etc.)
I've owned this keyobard for about a month and I absolutely love it. I've been considering a mechanical keyboard for a long time but could not justify getting one due to the high price tag. However, when I saw the Cherry mechanical keyboards for sale, I figured it would be a great opportunity to get one. I have not regretted it at all! It's a great mechanical keyboard at an inexpensive price. The keys are clicky, as expected with Cherry MX Blue switches. I really like the simple design and I prefer it over those other gaming keyboards with flashy designs and LED lights. The keyboard isn't the best in terms of build quality (it's quite light and occasionally you will hear some keyboard rattle on certain keys if you elevate it on an angle, but for a great mechanical keyboard for under $70, you can't really complain.
Overall, I would definitely buy this keyboard again if I had the opportunity.

-cheap, especially if you only want the switches
-a no-nonsense step up from trashy rubber-dome value brands
-does not include rear feet
-spacing between key groups is not full-sized
I took my first step back into mechanical keyboard territory with the steelseries 7G and its MX Black keyswitches. There's a link to the reviews of that at the end of this one. I decided to pick up two of these Cherry MX-Board 2.0 models in a recent sale, one with blue switches and one with brown.

First, I can confirm that the bodies of these Cherry keyboards are extremely flexible along their width, but luckily I can also say that this does not affect typing in the slightest. The reason for the flex is that there is no metal plate in these boards - the keyswitches used are the PCB-mounted models. I don't notice much difference, except that the keys on the Cherry boards feel more "individual" - likely because the metal plate transmits the movement from each keypress to the rest of the board more noticeably. Another side-effect of PCB-mounting is that the LED indicators can be mounted in the keys instead of the status area, which is perfectly acceptable but takes a bit of getting used to.

There are two small rubber pads under the front of the keyboard, but both the case itself and the extendible feet at the rear of the board lack any sort of friction enhancers. This is odd, considering there are two huge indentations on the bottom of the board made specifically to accept Cherry's rubber pads (see bright orange triangle in the image linked below). While the front ones should suffice on most surfaces, I'm not sure how well they'll grip during a fast-paced game.

The Cherry keycaps are all of a single top angle, which slants away from the user rather than towards them as the steelseries caps do. Another big difference is their height, they are only half as tall as the latter, giving them an almost laptop-like feel. They are also laser-etched, which means they will be legible pretty much indefinitely.

The layout of the MX Boards is not one I am fond of, unfortunately. Although it is not a ten-key-less design (i.e. it has a numerical pad), it is not a full-sized layout. Compare the pictures with the G80-3000 model NCIX carries and you will see what I mean: the spacing between the key groups (function keys, alphanumerical section, directional arrows, etc.) has been decreased to almost nothing. While this hasn't made me any more likely to activate neighbouring keys unintentionally, it has resulted in pressing entirely incorrect keys as it's harder to know where your fingers are.

Specific to the MX Blue keyswitches, they are pretty much what I expected after reading about them on various forums and examining Cherry's graphs, which detail how applying force affects the sound, activation, and resistance of the switch. Personally, I prefer the Blue switches' higher resistance just before the activation point, but the concern I had of not being able to tell when the switch resets is valid. This is due to the reset point being quite far from the activation point in a zone of low resistance, and it makes words with double letters a bit tricky sometimes.

The feet that aren't included (orange-red triangle far right):

Very cost effective for a mechanical keyboard
Full sized shift key
Not the highest quality of workmanship
Low profile keys (could be a pro) (they are about 1/2-3/4 standard)
I agree with the previous reviewer that they lettering on the keycaps is not the best. However, I do not think that it warrants a 2 star review.


I bought this keyboard for my girlfriend as she wants to try a mechanical keyboard. She wanted a standard keyboard with a full sized shift bar, number pad, and cherry blue switches. She also didn't need macro keys. After searching for a while, the best options I could find were the Das Keyboard and this one.

Now, I love my girlfriend and all, but I can't afford a $120 keyboard if she doesn't end up liking the mechanical keys. As a result of my cheapness, I settled on this one for around $56.

This keyboard is awesome for the price. It's cherry blue switches, it has a full size (maybe even bigger) shift key, it has a number pad, and it doesn't have macro keys (a plus in my case). The keycaps are a bit lower profile, which can be good, but I believe it is a standard layout if you ever want to change the keycaps (though I read that caps lock may not be standard... BECAUSE CAPS LOCK IS NECESSARY, RIGHT?!)
Is it the best quality keyboard? No. Is it a good keyboard? I would say yes. If you can't afford a Das Keyboard, go for this one. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

I miss the sound and tactile feeling of Cherry Blues switches whenever I am typing on my laptop. Once you start typing on mechanical keyboards, it's hard to go back.
It is not even 3 weeks and the keycap lettering started fading. This is definitely not acceptable for a $50 keyboard. My OEM keyboard has lasted for 10 years and the lettering has yet to come off.
Cherry MX 2.0 is a good introductory mechanical keyboard with its basic 104 ANSI layout. For someone who does not need any macro features or media keys shortcuts, this keyboard is for you. However due its poorly printed keycap lettering, I cannot recommend this keyboard. This review was modfied by poster g 10-06-12 02:17 PM
