Desktop Keyboard Frees Up Workspace

CHERRY, latest addition to its keyboard family, the MX Board 1.0 TKL, is a user-friendly keyboard that is compact, with its layout refined down to the essential keys to free up valuable desk space. Built with the original CHERRY MX keyswitch, the keyboard is backed by dimmable white backlighting and provided laser etched keys and an illuminated USB plug.


Even though the corded mechanical keyboard with TKL layout is designed for comfort, it’s as sturdy as the company’s larger keyboards. The MX Board 1.0 TKL is equipped with additional feet for a non-slip grip and adjustable for custom heights. Its anti-ghosting technology and N-key rollover function prevent input errors. Also, each key is meant to last at least fifty million operations.
