I wouldn't say the quality is poor but it does feel cheap for the monies you pay.
Although I already own 3x 3494 (1x chinese version, 2x english version), I believe I will still be buying more.
The lower height profile of Cherry keyboards make it more enjoyable to use and not to mention the smooth POM keycaps that brings out the feel of Cherry MX red.
Note : the one sold in PC|home is "chinese version" which is no different to the US ANSI layout but with extra printing.
Cherry, Y U NO decide on only one type of capslock...
