hey what’s up guys my name is brain bean and today we’re going to be doing something a little bit different we’re going to be doing and unboxing and review of this cherry MX board silent now this is a board from sherry and it’s going to be a little bit something different than you’re used to seeing for me.
Cherry MX Board Silent Review
So let’s go and pull this out of the box and I’ll show you what I’m talking about this is the cherry MX board silent now it is going off of one of Cherry’s most popular designs and this is definitely not your more flashy gaming keyboard this is going to be something that’s more for office use and it certainly fits that team when you see a susan like an old 90s computer kind of off-white color it also comes in black to those so don’t let that scare you too much now if you look at the keyboard it it’s got a very large footprint for a keyboard especially right now when keyboards are kind of going more towards that minimalistic style so that’s something to consider with how much real estate that’s going to take it if you look at this top section here – I mean there’s like an extra inch of just space there and I think part of that is because one of their models comes with a credit card swiper up here for more like business type stuff like in retail stores so that’s probably why it’s there but it still kind of just seems like a pointless addition to me to have on there now picking up the keyboard it’s fairly light for a mechanical keyboard especially from something I would expect to see from Cherry and if you look here it does kind of flex a little bit and when I mash down on the keys as well it the board actually has a pretty significant amount of flex probably one of them more amounts of flex or more you know the worst flex I probably seen a mechanical keyboard in a while so that’s kind of kind of scary but in during the regular typing it doesn’t I tend to crank down on them pretty good looking over to flip this thing over real quick and look at the underside so you have your four fairly small rubberized pads and then you have two very small extendable legs as well on the bottom side of the keyboard so let’s see if we kind of extend those up a little bit it does feel like it’s not really going to slide too terribly much but it is still something to come and be myself and like send it off down there full day but the big thing about this is like the name implies it’s a cherry MX silent board so basically what that means is it comes in to switch varieties it comes in the red which is the same as the Cherry MX red and then it comes in the black which is going to be the same as the Cherry MX black but with the big difference on both of these switches is that they have built-in dampeners very similar to your o-rings that you would put on your keyboards both on the downstroke and on the upstroke as well so when you take your your finger off the key and it snaps back up again it’s going to reduce the volume on that as well now this is the cherry MX red version here in front of me and I also have a keyboard that uses regular cherry MX Reds in it right here so what we’re going to do is a quick side by side sound test just to see how much more quiet these cherry MX silenced which is our so if use a quick sound test for you of these two area MX silent switches and now we’ll go over to the regular cherry MX red that will do some quick back to back so you can see so as you can imagine for office use this would definitely be something that is a lot more desirable from employers and also your co-workers too because you’re not going to be making a ton of critical actually loud noise when you’re using this one here so I think that’s the big benefit although one thing that’s worth mentioning is that both of these silent switches are linear switches and typist tend to prefer tactile switches just because you get that nice tactile feeling now again to kind of go against that if I was going to be using a membrane keyboard at work which I personally do it I hate it is that you could bring your own mechanical keyboard like this one and I would much prefer a linear mechanical keyboard to a crappy membrane keyboard at work anyways you still have to bottom them both out so you know that’s fine in that sense the a nother big thing that’s worth talking about is the price on this keyboard so this keyboard is a and that’s pretty darn expensive for something that looks pretty plain Jane like this now it does have a couple of things on it that’s nice like the key caps for example our laser etched PBT key caps which is a much higher quality key cap than your standard abs key caps typically a set of PBT key caps is going to run you like on its own so that’s part of the value in this keyboard they’re definitely going to last a long time and the characters aren’t going to wear down on the keyboard but still going for something like for home use you could get a Cherry MX silent switch in the courser strafe RGB keyboard for cheaper than this keyboard cost so if it’s for home use I don’t necessarily recommend this keyboard but for the office and for somebody who wants to still have the mechanical experience without disturbing other people in the work space then this is definitely a very good option now if you don’t you know your employer’s don’t mind flashy things I would still probably get this straight for RGB just for the extra features let it have but you know I do think that this keyboard should come in a little bit cheaper and hopefully cherry will drop the price on it it is a fairly new keyboard it just came out a few months ago and I think a more appropriate price point for this would probably be somewhere more around but anyways guys that’s kind of what I think about this keyboard thanks for joining me for this quick snippet review I’m going to try to do more of these like I said in my last video like
