UNBOXED: Reviewing Cherry G80-3000 Silent Keyboard
A quick glance at the keyboard market can be overwhelming. The brands are numerous, the designs run the gamut, and the LEDs are luminous. However, the common denominator seems to always be Cherry brand switches. So when we bumped into Cherry at CES, proudly showcasing their new line of Cherry MX Silent switches, we knew we had to get our hands on it.
Lucky for us, Cherry has made their personal branded keyboard — officially dubbed the G80-3000 — to highlight these unconventional switches.
Before we get under the hood, let's talk first impressions. The G80-3000 feels retro. It takes us back to the day of 30lb cell phones, CRT televisions, and suitcase laptops. It seems like Darth Vader's Executor-class Star Dreadnought when I immediately made the switch.
