Cherry cooked up an ultra-low profile mechanical keyboard with the CHERRY MX LOW PROFILE RGB SPEED switches. The board has per-key RGB LED illumination, a metal base, USB-C connectivity, and 8MB onboard memory. The keys lettering is laser etched and varnished, for high durability. Cherry says the MX 10.0N RGB will ship towards the end of this month. It has a MSRP of 149.99EUR.
The CHERRY MX 10.0N RGB is a premium mechanical keyboard, yet as slim as modern office keyboards. This is made possible by the CHERRY MX LOW PROFILE RGB SPEED switches, which are exclusively manufactured in Germany. With an overall height of just 22 mm, you can type ergonomically and comfortably even without a palm rest. This slim elegance stands in stark contrast to the sturdy and solid metal housing. The fold-out base is also made entirely of aluminium. As a special feature, it folds back automatically as soon as you lift the keyboard. Whether with or without the stand, the keyboard is always stable and non-slip on the table.

Powerful lighting
All keys feature an RGB LED with up to 16.8 million colours. In addition to ready-made effects, you can also choose your own colours or illuminate individual keys. Choose from exciting colour effects or subtle single-colour illumination – all without installing any software. However, if you want to program even more individual effects, macros and professional settings, the CHERRY Utility Software is a powerful program available at no extra cost.

"State of the art" electronics
With 8 MB of integrated memory, the keyboard remembers your last settings – even if it has been unplugged in the meantime. Anti-ghosting prevents the occurrence of “ghost keys”, i.e. characters that are outputted when several keys are pressed simultaneously, even though they were not pressed at all. Thanks to full key rollover, you can press an unlimited number of keys simultaneously and no input is lost.

Original CHERRY switches
CHERRY MX LOW PROFILE RGB SPEED switches withstand more than 50 million presses per key. Despite the low height, you’ll immediately feel the inimitable MX feel with every keystroke. The switching characteristic is linear, i.e. without a click and without noticeable resistance. The switching point occurs already after a pre-travel of only one millimetre. It is not necessary to push through to the floor. This not only increases the reaction time but also ensures that every keystroke of the extra flat keys is registered. A decisive advantage, not only for gamers but also for everyday office use.

A keyboard for all those who want "more"
Thanks to its robust construction, extremely long durability and adjustable illumination, the MX 10.0N RGB is not only suitable for power users, gamers and enthusiasts but also for industrial applications and frequent typists. The low-profile mechanical keyboard fits anywhere, making it versatile.
