If they have indeed used Aluminum then a keyboard autopsy would show it clearly. Weird thing is why paint aluminum it's far better anodized instead and would last far longer. Not saying that an anodized finish wouldn't be scratched easily but this keyboard isn't something you should bash on repeatedly without knowing what the consequences will be.

I actually like it and it's far stronger to me then any of their previous releases that flexed a little too much.

Aluminium housing with sanded finish and grease resistant coating

Aluminium top housing with sanded finish and grease resistant coating

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

 

Oh hey, maybe that's what it is. Good catch!

misoonigiri suggested above that maybe it's the "grease resistant coating" that's wearing off. I'm curious though: what does the body sound like if you tap it with a very hard object, like maybe the side of a screwdriver (the metal rod part)? Or maybe a metal spoon or fork or butter knife or something like that.

In fact, this keyboard is more expensive than a lot of mechanical keyboard。If they can do the anode oxidation, as well as iPhone case。Anode oxidation does not require too much cost。
if cherry will do this at next keyboard,I will look forward to it

All I want out of this keyboard is the Cherry MX switches and the Analog Real Key Technology.

You girls and guys can cry about the rest. I've seen worse keyboards for more money

Hi,

Can someone give me a bit more detail about this specific keyboard please?

Ideally, I'd like an image of the underside of the keyboard - the whole piece, including all labels that are on the base and, if possible, a close-up of the main label, which includes the part-code and, more importantly serial number.

Will look into it...

You know that sounds suspicious, right?

Exactly, and that's the only post he made. Gee, I wonder what he's trying to do.

Okay, apologies people - should have announced who I am smile.gif

My name is Robin Bithrey - I have worked for CHERRY in the UK for almost 20 years and I'm just interested to find out as much as I can about the issue with the MX Board 6.0. To my knowledge, this is the ONLY case of this since the keyboard has been available and it would be interesting to see particularly what the date code is (one letter, two numbers, just after the serial number).

I have spoken to my colleagues in Germany and they have confirmed that this is definitely made with a solid piece of aluminium, with several layers of coating which give the specific finish, so to see the wear is disturbing to say the least, as well as exceptionally unusual. In my personal opinion, this would only be caused by some form of severe usage - it looks (certainly from the image showing the large area of wear on the left side) as if this has been held or rubbed for a long period of time. How exactly this has been achieved, I really don't know - only the user could tell me - but certainly in 'normal' usage, it's doubtful that something like this would happen. My son, who is a gamer, uses his MX Board 6.0 almost daily and for relatively long periods and there are no signs of wear on his whatsoever. He's had this now for approximately 9 months.

The image below is of a bare casing - this was sent over by Germany to show the different layers of coating that are present and it has been deliberately sanded with a Dremmel hand-tool to get to this level - hope it demonstrates how the product is built.


So, if someone can give me the date code, it would be great - just interested to see when the keyboard was built and report this back to the factory.

Ah that helps. Unfortunately, the person who mentioned it here hasn't been online here in almost an year now: http://www.overclock.net/u/477306/dereklin

You could try sending him a private message and hope he had set up email alerts but doubtful. Based on his posts, he's based in China and that's where he saw similar issues. If it helps, my review sample is still fine.

If you decide to spend more time here you should talk about getting a title for your naming showing as a Cherry rep or something, Its always nice to see companies and reps here on the boards.
