It has been over 2 years ago that I bought this keyboard, it is the very first keyboard that didn’t break within 3 months of usage. Every other keyboard that I had (especially a lot from Logitech) have broken within literally about 10-12 weeks of use. (I’m not exaggerating.)
I write code for a living, so I am a real keyboard user (and abuser), my typing is tough on the keys and rubber dome keyboards I had in the past were breaking down simply because of either broken contacts, broken lanes on the print, keys falling off, you name it, I’ve seen it all. Up to whole sections of keyboards that just stopped working.
So when I was looking for something new, I had for myself something like, let’s buy something that can handle the stress of fast typing and can handle a bit of force. So I ended up buying this one. A nice Cherry-MX keyboard with an aluminium frame and RGB lighting. The RGB thing doesn’t interest me that much, although it helps to mark keys with special functions depending on the software I’m using.
The programmable G-Keys I use for starting my tools or handling common programming tasks, these work just nicely. They allow me to switch my keyboards to a variety of different ‘modes’ which reprogram these keys to do other things. Very handy.
I can certainly recommend this keyboard to anyone who types a lot for a living. The only downside is that it is a bit noisy, so others across the room will hear you type and that can be a bit annoying. If you have your own office that shouldn’t be an issue.
