Cherry MX Board 6.0 review: Nothing beats good ol' Cherry MX switches

 

When offered the chance to do a Cherry MX Board 6.0 review, I jumped at the opportunity. Find out how a Cherry board with Cherry MX Red Linear switches performs!

Solid build quality ; Outstanding performance ; No software required ; Adjust brightness in 1% increments ; Office/gaming mode ; Super long USB cable ; Included wrist rest

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

– No software to program the keyboard ; – Price

Macro keys and software aside, the MX Board 6.0 is still quite a few missing features that we would typically expect to find on a premium keyboard. It’s clear that Cherry is deliberately not competing directly with the manufacturers that buy its...

Consumer review (newegg.com)

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
