Well I just got my cherry g80-3000lscrc-2 and it has english and chinese on it, pretty unique and cool. The space bar switch is a little stiffer than I thought it was going to be, but the board types really well nonetheless. It's interesting as I have never typed on Cherry MX Blue's before, but they feel wonderful to type on. It reminds me of a cross between a membrane keyboard and a MX Black board but with a little click. It is very responsive, easy to type quickly with. I can see what people mean about the Cherry MX Black being the best for gaming though, but you can still practically do the same thing with this board, although it has to engage the click switch in order to register, but with an MX black you just lightly press the key and it engages the input data. Anyway, I am going to put a picture of it later.

Cheers.

Glad you like it

FYI, take the spacebar key off and I bet you'll find that it's actually a Green switch instead of Blue. Cherry likes to make their spacebars stiffer than the rest because people like me tend to hit them really hard.

Heh, yeah I don't think im gonna take it off right now to check but I'm sure you're right about it being a different switch, reminds me a lot of the MX Black space bar. I tend to be kind of gentle on my keys except when im playing Halo PC. I think I might replace the LED's on this board since they look a little dull. Pics go up tonight.

Alright here are the pics of the keyboard. Pretty sweet. The first picture is my office where the horrendous membrane keyboard I had before once sat. And yes, under my desk are three SCSI 15k RPM Cheetah's. Anyway, the new keyboard rules.

Edit: You were right about there being a Cherry MX Green switch under my spacebar, that's pretty cool. I've never seen one before, it has an interesting feel to it, but I will never again take off the space bar to look at the switch, it was the biggest pain in the butt ever to put back on, took me like 45 minutes.

Hm, right now I'm torn between the mx blue and mx brown. I consider myself a pretty light typer, I really hated those MY linear springs and my brother's crappy logitech membrane is a PITA to hit keys. Is there much of a difference between the brown and blue? I wouldn't want to bottom out every key, though, so does the blue require that much force?

Whichever of the two you get you're gonna be bottoming out for a week or two - it takes a bit to get fully used to them.

But yeah there's quite a difference between the two switches. The tactile bump on the blues is more pronounced and sharp (that's where all your force is needed), but the bump on the browns feels very soft and more gradual.

I used to really, really like Blues myself but I think I'm starting to lean towards using Browns again because of how light they are.

Good stuffs . Yeah I've always been wondering why they never made a board completely with Cherry Greens, just for the hell of it maybe someone would like it. And I'd be interested in trying it at least.

Heh, they would never make a board with all Cherry Green's because everyone's hands would fall off after typing on them for more than 5 minutes, they remind me of a Black switch except with a click bump.
