Funny, I am selling a similar keyboard- but in black with cherry brown switches- right now. ($20 more (shipped) though)

What do you want to use it for? I like the one I am selling well enough, but prefer my model M. Note, can you live with the arrow key placement?

Yea i can live with the arrow key placement. I just like that they most likely will be cherrys, so lighter than the current board i use now dell at101w. The programmable keys on top will be great for macros and media key functions.

I only recommend them for trying out the switches. Not for daily use.

They tend to be HEAVILY used.

In other words they don't call them POS for nuttin'.

I used to spit on our POS keyboards to try and clean them.

Not to mention I can't even begin to express how much coffee and energy drink was spilled on them ahaha, good times.

pretty much what everyone else has said, if you want to try a certain color switch its a cheap way to do it.

and hey if it works, some alcohol should clean it up okay and you can ride it till its dead if you like it, but they take up a crap ton of desk space, course they are so heavy you can use them as a weapon if someone breaks in tho.

All my keyboards are second (or third, or more) hand.

@OP: A lot of Cherry POS (i.e. Point of Sale) keyboards have black switches. Even if it had tactile or clicky ones, Cherry switches dont age well, so they aren't really indicative of what a new keyboard will feel like at all.
