This product is what you expect from a Cherry keyboard. The keys produce a solid clickity-clack sound as you type which for me is strangely satisfying. I like the solid sound of this as I type, but be warned it’s loud and may annoy co-workers or any cats.

The response from the keys is excellent, and I found I was typing more accurately at higher speeds due to the deep (and yet light) press required. The keys have a concave shape at the top and a surface that feels pleasant to touch.

I would recommend this keyboard for programming/office work, and not for gaming, there are far better choices in this price range, and the noise/light key-press is more of a hindrance in situations where the same buttons are just being mashed over and over. I didn’t buy the keyboard for this purpose anyway as I knew what to expect, I’m just including the information.

Overall, the CHERRY G80-3000 Keyboard is a well-made product that has survived several falls/hard knocks without any damage and has retained its pleasant key-response despite extensive use. I would have loved to have seen backlighting.
