At this point, we’ve been able to get our hands and fingertips on a large quantity of mechanical keyboards. Each has brought some unique aspect, level of flash, or innovative new feature to the table—and that’s no different with the Cherry MX Board 5.0.
Cherry, for what it’s worth, has long been considered the leader in this space when it comes to mechanical keyboard switches. They’ve set the standard for keyboard switches, and their name has become something akin to the Band-Aid or Jacuzzi at this point. You can assume with great deal of certainty that whatever keyboard you happen to have on the desk there in front of you has switches that were made by Cherry. So, reviewing a keyboard that employs those same switches and is developed by the company behind them, you expect it to perform at or above standard. It’s like Google’s Pixel phone in that, Android is developed by Google, and the Pixel phone is, in their vision, the perfect device to help drive the perfect Android experience.
That’s absolutely the case with the MX Board 5.0 from Cherry.
