Cherry MX Blue

Mechanical keyboards utilize a different type of key switch technology for a more durable and unique typing experience. The Cherry MX Blue switch has an actuation force of 50 g and offers both an audible "click" and a tactile bump when pressed, letting you know that the key has registered. The "click" comes from a mechanism within the switch that triggers when the key reaches its actuation point.

Das Keyboard 4 root Reviews

Nice keyboard, not so reliable

By James

So it's a beautiful keyboard for sure- but when I'm paying this much for a keyboard, it would be cool if all the keys would work upon booting every time. I often have to disconnect it and reconnect it because some letters don't work- typically vowels, W key, sometimes numbers- you never know. Super annoying but I love the feel under my fingers.

Lovely typing experience, USB hub issue

This keyboard is the ultimate typing experience compared to any other keyboard Ive tried. I had a cheap keyboard with brown switches, cause I thought the blues would be too loud for my office. However, the brown switches barely had any tactile feedback, they were actually worse than some silicone dome keyboards from Gearhead. So I got this keyboard and my office coworkers actually prefer this sound, it is rather clicky, but is missing the clunky sound of bottoming out, which was a problem with the cheap keyboard. One problem though; the USB hub doesnt work on the one I got. If I plug something in the hub, it says theres insufficient power and it doesnt mount the device. I contacted customer support and they got me to do a firmware update, but that didnt solve the problem. They told me I can request an exchange through B&H, but I didnt want to do without it for that long, so I just dont use the hub, which I probably wouldnt have anyway.
