Ultra low profile high end keyboard with mechanical switches

Mechanical switches meet ultra-slim design. The CHERRY KW X ULP keyboard combines the attractive look of modern slimline keyboards with the advantages of a mechanical keyboard, making it a unique premium product. Its very low height is ensured by the high-quality CHERRY MX ULTRA LOW PROFILE TACTILE switches. The keyboard can be connected wirelessly via Bluetooth® or 2.4 GHz radio frequency as well as via USB cable, offering you maximum flexibility. In the office, for gaming, as a frequent typist in the home office or as a programmer: you'll love this ultra-slim mechanical keyboard.

Proprietary CHERRY MX ULTRA LOW PROFILE switches

The CHERRY KW X ULP mechanical keyboard owes its slim design to its proprietary MX ULTRA LOW PROFILE TACTILE switches, which are renowned for their fast response and reliable input. In addition to the extremely low height, the switches, which are exclusively manufactured in Germany, also ensure a precise and unique typing feel. Each key on the mechanical office keyboard can easily withstand up to 50 million rapid keystrokes.

In addition, the rechargeable CHERRY Ultra Low Profile Keyboard features high-quality polycarbonate key caps. Designed specifically for the CHERRY MX ULTRA LOW PROFILE switches, these are abrasion-resistant and guarantee long-lasting key labeling. Although they are extremely slim, they are subtly concave for comfortable typing and good grip. This makes the flat mechanical keyboard comfortable to use for gaming as well as in the office. The elegant look is rounded off by an anodized aluminum surface with silver edges.

A premium mechanical keyboard: not just slim, but also multi-device capable

Bluetooth®, 2.4 GHz wireless or USB cable? The CHERRY KW X ULP keyboard cuts a fine figure in any situation and can be very easily, but above all quickly connected by any of these connection options. If you use the ultra-flat mechanical keyboard wirelessly, you can be sure that your data is transferred securely thanks to AES-128 encryption. Very practically equipped with CHERRY MX ULTRA LOW PROFILE TACTILE switches, the keyboard can boast a total of four channels, allowing you to connect several devices at once. At the push of a button, you can easily switch back and forth between two Bluetooth® channels, a wireless channel and a wired channel. This means, for example, you can control a laptop, smartphone, game console and PC with just one keyboard. Colored LEDs on the F-keys mean you always know which mode you’re in.

White illumination with additional colored LEDs

The white key illumination of the CHERRY KW X ULP can be dimmed in 10 steps, so you can use the flat mechanical keyboard optimally in the office or when gaming, even in poor light conditions. Of course, you can also use the CHERRY Ultra Low Profile Keyboard completely unlit. The status keys CAPS LOCK, NUM LOCK, SCROLL LOCK, WIN and FN as well as the keys for the four channels have also been given a colored LED. This shows you at a glance whether the respective function is activated or not.

Below the CHERRY button, you’ll find a useful RGB LED that gives you information about the battery status while charging. Once the CHERRY KW X ULP is fully charged, you can type away on it for several weeks depending on the selected illumination and operating mode. The USB-C to USB-A cable required for charging is of course included.

Enjoy all the advantages of a gaming keyboard

The mechanical CHERRY KW X ULP may not look like a gaming keyboard, as slim and sleek as it is, but technically it is ideally suited for that as well. Incorrect inputs are reliably prevented by anti-ghosting, while full-N-key rollover enables simultaneous pressing and processing of an unlimited number of keys. Data transfer takes place with low latency on all channels. The CHERRY Ultra Low Profile Keyboard is also equipped with three flip-out feet, which can be used to adjust the tilt. For all these reasons, the CHERRY KW X ULP can easily be used as a slimline mechanical gaming keyboard.

Individual key assignment with CHERRY KEYS

With the CHERRY KEYS software, which is available free of charge, you can reassign the F keys and special keys in no time at all. Text modules, shortcuts, macros, open files/websites/folders/programs, system functions or multimedia functions can be intuitively assigned to individual keys. This useful little tool is as slim and unobtrusive as the low-profile mechanical keyboard itself.

High-quality materials combined with state-of-the-art connectivity make the CHERRY Ultra Low Profile Keyboard a completely unique high-end product. Prepare to be impressed.
