Cherry G80-5000 HAAUS ergonomic split keyboard review (Cherry MX brown)

Video Reviews

Here’s our ergonomic video review of the day. Check out “Cherry G80-5000 HAAUS ergonomic split keyboard review (Cherry MX brown).”

We feature the Cherry G80-5000 in our Guide to Ergonomic Mechanical Keyboards. This keyboard is also known as the Cherry ErgoPlus and was the only ergonomic mechanical keyboard produced by Cherry. It was first sold in 1994 and was the first to use Cherry’s MX Brown switches. For 1994, this keyboard with the split left and right sides was not common and the marketplace was not ready for this type of ergonomic design. If you want one, you’ll need to scour Craigslist and eBay and expect to pay about $1,000 or more.

Hi, I'm Kealoha, an American engi-nerd. I've designed dozens of software systems for Fortune 1000 companies worldwide and institutions like MIT’s Digital Media Lab. I started to get carpal tunnel syndrome early in my career and a total
switch to ergo products has completely eliminated any pain or discomfort despite decades of crazy hours behind screens. I hope you too weave in a bit of ergo into your lives.
