Best keyboard I have used
Reviewed by . Review Posted 24/07/2008
5 5

I have small hands and work as a designer/programmer. I also type very fast. I wanted to get away from the fancy Microsoft and Logitech keyboards and look for something simple and practical. As I started typing, it felt just right. It is very comfortable. There is a solid but smooth motion in the key pressing. The layout is low profile but not as light as a laptop keyboard. Don't be deceived by the 20% larger keys, the surface of the keys are just flatter than ordinary keyboards. I'll have to disagree on the previous reviewers as typing is near silent.
The keyboard offers some custom keys. The volume and mute buttons are positioned below the spacebar and cursors but the media keys are flat so you wouldn't press them by accident.
I also have to mention that Windows XP automatically detects your keyboard and its custom keys so no need to install drivers and bloated software. Bravo to Cherry. I highly recommend everyone try out this keyboard.

Almost as good as IBM

I have never found a perfect substitute for the old IBM keyboards, but the Cherry CyMotion comes close. It has a similar feel and comfort to them, but is not nearly as robust, unfortunately. However, if you don't drop it on it the floor and clean it regularly, the Cymotion gives grand service. You can't argue with the price, either!

I will certainly buy another

Fine but not coffee proof

The keyboard is nice, but I have just found from experience that it is not coffee proof! One spillage has resulted in the loss of my semi-colon. I have come back to buy another however.

I can only imagine that the other reviewers are reviewing a different keyboard when they refer to the noise, I simply cannot understand to what they might be talking about.

Awesome, but noisey

This keyboard was far cheaper than my previous keyboard (G15), I bought it on recommendation from a friend.
For typing it is amazing, nice feel to it in my opinion. However I do have to agree with the other reviewer 2 of us in my house have this keyboard and with us both typing a large amount of the time I sometimes find my other house mates shaking in a corner somewhere due to the noise. This however doesn't bother me of course! I have split a few things on it, not out of testing, Orange Juice, Beer, Coffee and lots of cigarette ash. Each and every time a quick wipe and a shake and its fine.

Tough but too noisy for home use

This keyboard sounded good - not too cheap, not too pricey. It is very well made, solid, with little flex. Looks smart. No connection probs. Comes with USB->PS2 converter.

Cherry have added another modifier key between the left Windows and control keys to access the secondary functions attached to the F keys. This reduces the space available for the other modifier keys, and, in my opinion, gets in the way. Otherwise the keyboard layout cannot be faulted.

What you really have to watch out for though is the key action. It's very noisy and clunky, with the key making a definite clunk as it springs back. On a wooden desk this keyboard makes a racket! Even with some foam underneath to dampen the noise the key action itself is still very loud - definitely audible in the next room.

Another point which may sound petty unless you've experienced it yourself; the caps/number lock LEDs are *very* bright, almost dazzling.

I get the feeling this keyboard was designed for point-of-sal
