CHERRY MX 10.0 IN DETAIL
The MX 10.0 is a premium keyboard that is a perfect companion not only for gamers, but also for frequent writers in everyday office life. Thanks to its flat design and the quick actuation of the LOW PROFILE switches, input is quick and precise. CHERRY includes an aluminium travel case with the keyboard, which provides appropriate protection when travelling and guarantees a unique experience when you first unpack the box. In addition, the model offers full RGB lighting with up to 16.8 million colours, a detachable USB cable and, of course, N-key rollover and anti-ghosting.
DESIGN AND ERGONOMICS
The MX 10.0 relies on an aluminium top cover, which provides stability and a premium feel. By using the MX LOW PROFILE switches, the keyboard achieves a very low overall height of just 22 millimetres. On the rear side the keyboard features a foldable stand which elevates the keyboard at an ideal angle to prevent wrist fatigue. The highlight: when the keyboard is lifted, the stand folds in automatically. The package is rounded off by the sturdy, flat keycaps, which ensure a clean look.
FEATURE SET AND SPECIAL FEATURES
In addition to the three dedicated media keys, the MX 10.0 also has a lock function to lock the Windows-key at the touch of a button. This prevents accidentally switching to the desktop while gaming. The special CHERRY key gives quick access to the CHERRY Utility software, which can be used to configure various macro settings and lighting options and then store them in the integrated memory. The keyboard is connected to the PC via a 1.6-metre detachable USB-cable.
LIGHTING AND CHERRY UTILITY SOFTWARE
The MX 10.0 offers full RGB lighting with up to 16.8 million colours, configurable for each individual key. Using the free CHERRY Utility software, it is possible to create complex macros and save them directly to the keyboard thanks to the eight megabytes of onboard memory. Furthermore, individual lighting effects can be created, previewed, and then stored.
FIRST CHERRY KEYBOARD WITH CHERRY MX LOW PROFILE SWITCHES
The new premium keyboard from CHERRY is impressive in terms of its flat design as well as its fast and reliable performance, in particular thanks to the CHERRY MX LOW PROFILE switches. They are manufactured exclusively in Germany according to the highest standards and therefore contribute to a pleasant, premium typing feel and high durability.
Buyers can choose between MX LOW PROFILE RGB RED and MX LOW PROFILE RGB SPEED SILVER switches. Both are linear switches with an actuation force of 45 centinewtons. MX LOW PROFILE RGB RED switches have a pre-travel of 1.2 millimetres and feature the same characteristics as the classic MX RED switches; for MX LOW PROFILE RGB SPEED SILVER the pre-travel has been reduced to just 1.0 millimetres. This enables even faster input and can give the player a decisive advantage in virtual battles.
With the new MX 10.0, CHERRY is demonstrating what can be achieved by using LOW PROFILE switches in terms of flat design. The aluminium cover doesn’t just give it a premium look, but also offers a high degree of stability. The MX 10.0 is available in two switch versions: LOW PROFILE RGB RED for fast inputs in gaming and typing, and LOW PROFILE RGB SPEED SILVER can offer gamers that decisive extra when it comes to demanding games. The laser-marked, abrasion-resistant keycaps round off the elegant appearance. The special stand allows the model to be placed on the table at the perfect angle. The powerful software from CHERRY, on the other hand, allows useful macros and lighting options to be configured, which ensure even greater precision when playing.
