Cherry Keyboards, Part 2: MX Board Silent

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.

If you want more information about this product, head on over to the Cherry site. If you want to buy it, head on over to a site like Amazon and pay about $149.00 for it.
