The built-in processor allows all profiles to be easily set and activated directly from the keyboard without the use of any software.

  1. THE LEVEL OF BUILD QUALITY AND CUSTOMER CARE YOU SHOULD EXPECT 1 Star Review

    Defective out of the box

    Hi there, I ordered this keyboard to replace a keyboard I have since disposed of.

    Alas, this keyboard has a bad switch lying under the backspace. It is functional, registers the keypress, and provides a soft click. However, while there are inconsistencies in the manufacturing of Cherry MX switch which are to be expected, the mushiness of the backspace key is far greater than the mushiness of any of the other "less than crisp" keys, and is indistinguishable from a Cherry MX BROWN key rather than the Blue switch that it is. Very disappointing indeed.

    While I like the keyboard very much, for the $150 I paid, I would have expected to have (mostly) firm and clicky keys across the entire board.

    This is my first order from CM and I'd like to see what you can do for me.

    The board you sent is currently the only KB I have, you have my credit card on file (as a deposit) if necessary, I would like a replacement sent out so I can send back the defective one as the new arrives, otherwise I won't be able to type on my computer (!).

    Many thanks

    Hi,

    I am not sure if anyone has read my email, I understand it's only been a couple of days since I sent it.

    I have received an email from CM requesting that I review this product. As it stands, the product is below expectation and I would like to see what CM can do for me before I write my review.

    I await a reply.

    Many thanks

    LOST CUSTOMER (if you even care)

    You Said:

    Wow. I must say I am a bit stunned by the utter lack of regard for your customers. I have not even received a form letter reply to even acknowledge that I reached out to you regarding my order.

    CM has forever lost a customer, and I will make sure to steer anyone interested in your products to any number of your competitors with enthusiasm.

    Shame on Cooler Master.


  2. Best keyboard I've ever owned 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 1st Aug 2014)

    This keyboard is phenomenal. Not having a number pad actual improves my posture while working. The noise is significant, but in a room full of developers with different color switches, nobody really cares. I would absolutely recommend this keyboard.

    Really well built and great key action. The backlighting is really nice and can be configured to be subtle or bling. My favorite mechanical keyboard.
