CHERRY MX Board 1.0 Review (CHERRY G80-3816LXBGB-2)

It appears that new CHERRY products are coming thick and fast as the replacement for the CHERRY MX Board 3.0 has been released and comes in the form of the all-new CHERRY MX Board 1.0. As is commonplace for CHERRY products, the new keyboard is presented in a neat fashion with the box containing the keyboard itself, along with a quick set-up guide, a plastic wrist-rest and some black non-slip surfaces to help the keyboard stay still during regular usage.
