Wait a second. Is the so-called "aluminum housing" of the MX Board 6.0 actually a solid piece of aluminum, or is it just a layer of aluminum applied to a plastic surface that was painted with conductive paint and then electroplated? Or maybe in between, something with a cheap metal forming the actual structure and the shiny stuff applied to the top as a coating?

I ask because I've had peripherals with parts that were plastic with a metal coating, and the spots where the coating wore off looked a lot like this image:

That's terrible.

I can excuse that on cheap peripherals, where it's just another random coating that a part may have, but on such an expensive keyboard, with marketing that will lead most people to think they're looking at a solid piece of aluminum...yeah, that won't do.

NEVER did it say in any of their Sales material that this Cherry MX 6.0 is made out of Aluminum and if they did please provide a link to their website saying this.

Because it looks like Aluminum doesn't make it so, yet the keyboard is quite hefty compared to any other model previously released. Like it's conservative layout and the ability to type is quite comfortable despite being a weaker MX red switch.

We need someone to open one up and show us with pics, what makes this keyboard so heavy if they are not using any real solid Aluminum......

Actually: https://youtu.be/X6Uip1E73ag?t=6m36s

 

At 7:28, he says the body is cast aluminum. So, this must be a paint that is wearing off of the aluminum body, a paint that doesn't adhere very well to it.

Maybe it's this "grease resistant coating" coming off?
