The Cherry MX Board 1.0 TKL keyboard is Cherry from start to finish, not just the switches themselves but also the layout of the board including the extra controls available on the Function keys. Keycap aficionados are going to be somewhat disappointed however, though the keys do have a nice concave surface to draw your fingers into the middle of the keys, the caps themselves are made from ABS plastic. RGB fanatics may disapprove of the backlighting, which only offers white light and with the deprecation of Keyman you have limited software control.
There are those Cherry fanatics who will still be interested in their new keyboard, which you can see in action over at TechPowerUp.
"The Cherry MX Board 1.0 comes in a variety of offerings: TKL vs. full size, backlit or not. We take a look at the recently announced MX Board 1.0 TKL using genuine Cherry MX mechanical switches and the rarely used Cherry keycap profile. It is a keyboard designed with writing in mind, and this first-party offering is sure to interest the market accordingly."
