So, it is another day with a Cherry product, and I really want to make some terrible pun on how this G80-3000 MX Board Silent is the cherry on top. owever, I don’t really want to do that, but I will tell you all about this.
First of all, the MX Silent switches have Gold Crosspoint contact technology. Again, I clearly don’t know much about keyboard technology to know what contacts are, but I think it is underneath the keys and work as silencers or mufflers, maybe?
The MX Board Silent does have some noise-optimized MX key switch for patented noise reduction, with some integrated 2-component stem that can minimize the bottom-out and top-out. Again, I just don’t really know what that means.
So let us talk about what we should talk about. Is it quiet? I would say yes. I have tried out other “quiet” keyboards that turned out to be louder than the one that I regularly use. What you want to have is a keyboard that you can use while another person is taking a nap.
I’ll go ahead and end with some more features like the N-Key rollover for simultaneous operations of up to 14 keys without any ghosting. Just to let you know, this 104 key keyboard is compatible with both Mac and PC.
