So loud, yet so nice to type on, 18 Jun 2013
I purchased this keyboard after trying out MX Blue switches on the Razer BlackWidow Ultimate, but I wasn't willing to spend that much money on a keyboard, so I opted for the Cherry G80 as Cherry are a reputable company for keyboards. The keyboard arrived the next day (Amazon Prime) and I opened it with excitement, plugged it in, let Windows Update take care of the drivers and I was ready to go!
The first thing you will undoubtably notice about the keyboard is the very loud, yet very satisfying, "click" with each key press. At first I was worried that this would get annoying but it is really nice typing feedback.
The next thing you will notice (if you haven't used a mechanical keyboard before) is the ability to type by only pushing each key about half way down (pushing the key all the way is known as "bottoming out" and creates a much louder sound). The ability to activate the switch with a half-press is awesome, especially if you're a touch typer who likes to type as fast as possible.
Overall this keyboard is very nice to type (and program, and play games) on, and is a bargain at £60! It feels sturdy enough to last a long time and is a bargain at £60! If you're thinking about making the "switch" to mechanical keyboards, and are an avid typer/gamer, definitely go for it!
