The MX Board 6.0 features an sand blasted aluminium body on the top, black ABS backlit compatible key caps and a black rubber palm rest, which is detachable. It has a solid and durable feel to it and has an overall premium look and feel to it – Cherry certainly haven’t cut any corners here!
The palm rest attaches to the keyboard by two magnets located on the underside along the front edge. They are fairly powerful, however putting too much force causes the palm rest to push the keyboard backwards and almost “bounce”.
The keyboard has two collapsible feet which open sideways. They have little rubber strips on them to stop the keyboard sliding around, however they come off quite easily and cause the keyboard to wobble.
This particular model features Cherry MX red switches, which have a linear motion and require 45g of force to actuate. These switches are most popular with gamers and gaming keyboards – which may not be to some peoples’ liking. The switches are plate mounted with Cherry stabilisers. They all feature an LED, which is red or blue depending on it’s function – more on this in the next section
