Cherry MX Board 6.0 Keyboard Review


The MX Board 6.0 actually still remains their flagship gaming keyboard even though it has been out for a couple years now. Their mechanical switches are known

– Incredible build quality ; – One of the most comfortable keyboards we’ve ever used ; – Full N-Key rollover ; – Large wrist rest

– No software to program the keyboard ; – Price

I have been using the MX Board 6.0 as my main keyboard for the past 3 weeks and I have to say I am really enjoying it. It has to be one of the most comfortable keyboards that I’ve used in a very long time. I think a lot of it has to do with the quality...

Cherry MX Board 6.0 Review and Ratings


This swanky-looking mechanical keyboard is a solid performer, but it doesn't offer the depth of features to justify its current price.

Mechanical keyboard ; Cherry MX Red key switches ; Solid aluminum faceplate ; Detachable magnetic wrist rest ; Red backlighting

Consumer review (

Great Strafing Keyboard.


I defiantly feel this keyboards responsiveness in gaming with first and 3rd person shooters. Side strafing left and right now feels like I take 70% less hits. It's not a complete game changer other then strafing. But when strafing it almost feels like...

Extremely well built, nice bright lighting, big/small step lighting adjustments, just a keyboard with no extra junk like USB hubs or sound/mic ports. It's also heavy too which makes it not move in the most intense gaming moments ; The responsiveness...

Price... Some of the key icons are hard to see or to small. No other key colors available. Warranty is not even 2 full years
