Computer input manufacturer Cherry has today announced the availability of a new addition to their range of keyboards with the introduction of the MX Board 5.0
Which has been designed to provide a more ergonomic mechanical keyboard, to provide more comfort during those longer gaming sessions thanks to the addition of an adjustable palm rest. The Cherry MX Board 5.0 is now available to purchase with MX Silent Red switches priced at €159.
Features and specifications of the Cherry MX Board 5.0 Ergonomic Mechanical Keyboard include:
– The MX Board 5.0 is available with CHERRY MX Silent Red switches. This linear mechanical switch has an activation force of 45 Centinewtons, making it a popular choice in the gaming scene, but additionally offers a patented, integrated dampening solution for low-noise operation. These switches are exclusively manufactured in Germany and offer a lifespan of over 50 million actuations with an extremely high precision thanks to Gold Crosspoint technology. For those who consider the noise level of mechanical switches to be of no importance, the MX Board 5.0 will also be available in four classic switch versions: MX Red, MX Brown, MX Blue, and MX Black.
– CHERRY has integrated all the features into the MX Board 5.0 that a modern, high-quality keyboard should offer. These include high-speed key recognition, full N-Key rollover, and 100 percent reliable anti-ghosting. In addition, all individual keys are equipped with a white backlight which can be dimmed and allow different lighting modes. All of the technology is packaged into a high-quality aluminum case decorated with the CHERRY logo.
– CHERRY has implemented one more unique feature, in cooperation with the German company Typemates. Founders Nils Thomsen and Jakob Rungen, who have many years of expertise in the field of font design, have developed an exclusive CHERRY gaming font that guarantees perfect illumination of the abrasion-resistant key caps. This rounds off the MX Board 5.0 with a fresh, futuristic look.
