5 out of 5 eggsBest, sorta

Pros: I had one of these several years ago that I purchased for quite a steal from a store that sells overstock and such things.

The compact size, layout, and feel are excellent. Once I got used to it, I found it to be the best keyboard I ever used. Gives you tons of room for mouse/trackball/whatever. All the keys stacked in the numpad area are convenient for gaming.

Cons: Not indestructible. Despite my best efforts to treat the keyboard like a priceless work of art, it eventually died due to water spills. These Cherry mechanicals seem very sensitive to that.

And even more importantly, getting used to a keyboard like this will make you absolutely awful at typing on any other keyboard.

Other Thoughts: These bad boys sure are pricey.

4 out of 5 eggsSupplemental info

Pros: Adding some info about this keyboard. Keyboard lost it's ability to type the "b" letter within a couple of months of receiving it. Cherry was extremely courteous to work with on their warranty return, and they had the keyboard repaired and back to me in about a week...very fast turnaround time for a non-commercial customer.

Cons: Keyboard malfunctioned within a few months of purchase and had to be repaired under warranty. Had been rock solid since. Taking off one star for the failure, though.

Other Thoughts: Supplemental info on the keyswitches used: this keyboard uses Cherry "MY" FTSC (full-travel sealed-contact) switches. These are not the same "MX" switches used in high-end gaming keyboards. They are a stiff, silent, non-tactile switch with an increasing resistance the further down they are pushed. They "make" about halfway down; you don't have to bottom out the key.

If you search, you'll find some people don't care for these switches; however, I am a fast typist and came from a background of using IBM model M keyboards and find this keyboard quite comfortable even for typing hours at a time. And the compact size is a big plus.

5 out of 5 eggsNice little keyboard

Pros: Very small footprint. Simple, logical key layout. Full-stroke mechanical Cherry silent keyswitches, the same as used in some gaming keyboards. Rubber feet both on the base of the unit and on the swing-out angle lifts secure the unit nicely. Robust, sturdy little keyboard...looks to be built to last.

Cons: Does have some resistance, which may frustrate "soft typists" used to membrane keyboards instead of mechanical keyswitches.

The keyswitches in this unit don't have tactile feedback--they are silent and have a smooth travel all the way to the endstop. (They actually "make" and produce the keystroke about halfway down.) This may be good or bad depending upon personal preference.

Other Thoughts: A very friendly little keyboard to touch-type on. Let yourself get used to it for a couple of days and you'll never go back.
