CHERRY MX Board 6.0 Mechanical Keyboard Review

Others/Mice & Keyboards by stefan @ 2016-11-07

CHERRY MX Board 6.0 is a premium keyboard with top-notch hardware, incorporating MX Red switches, low-profile ABS keycaps and RealKey technology for minimizing the response times to unrealistic levels. The product lacks software customization as we have seen with many other gaming keyboards sporting same switches, the LED lighting is only red (and blue for several function keys), while the price is matching the high-end offerings from other brands.
