I moved to this keyboard after using a series of normal rubber-dome type keyboards. I want to give potential buyers an idea of what the experience of using this is, as well as pointing out the things that I do and do not like about this keyboard.

I want this keyboard primarily for improved typing. I also game, but cheap keyboards are more than good enough for my gaming needs. I want something not taxing (no repetitive stress injuries), fast, and accurate. I like a good click and I prefer short travel. I also prefer lower keytops (i.e., less separation between keys). These keys do not have short travel or low profile keys, but I guess you can't have it all.

As of this writing this is the cheapest mechanical keyboard you can buy. At least the cheapest one with Cherry MX keys. Cherry MX dominates the mechanical keyboard switch market, so almost every mechanical keyboard you will find features them. The various colors indicate the type of key used. These are the blue keys, which are the clickiest type (loud) and also probably the most commonly used for typing keyboards (as opposed to gaming keyboards). At the end of the day, the reason to get a mechanical keyboard is to have the mechanical keys. All the other considerations are pretty secondary. So if you are a budget consumer looking to have the mechanical key experience, this is the best keyboard to choose. Provided, of course, that you are interested in the MX blue keys.

The Switches

The MX blue switches make two distinct sounds as you press a key. At 2mm they make a very high-pitched click. This is also when the key activation signal is sent to the computer.

Style Name: Red CHERRY MX SwitchesSize: Tenkeyless Verified Purchase
Full disclosure here - I am not a gamer, I just want to buy a quality keyboard for my work and personal use. the selection criteria for the key board for me are:

1. Good touch and feel- I do not like the mushy feeling of the cheap keyboard came with every PC.
2. Good quality- keyboard material and workmanship must be good.
3. Small and no bell and whistle- the keyboard has to be clean in design and good in execution, I do not want a keyboard that have many features I do not use.

For the above selection criteria, I did check out some of the keyboards from different manufactures, I ended up with the basic requirements for a mechanical keyboard and preferably with Cherry blue or red switch, I ended up buying both from Cooler Master.

In my opinion, Cooler Master key board has the best price performance point of any other keyboards I compared with, especially, you do not care about 10 keys entry, I like the tactile feedback of the blue switch, and I also like the easiness of red switch, I decide I will use blue at my work and red for home. Both keyboards provide excellent value, and they are also very quality made, I do not think you will go wrong with any of them.


After bought another CM red keyboard, and use both for a while (one at work, one at home), I think CM blue is better, CM red has this soft feel with less of a feedback than CM blue, when typing fast, I make more mistakes on CM red than CM blue. Also on my CM red, the PS2 connector seems to have connectivity problem, it will drop the letters for no apparent reason, after I switch to USB connector, all is well, I will not just fault CM keyboard yet, it may very well because of my motherboard problem than keyboard issue.

I had only heard of the company.
I didn't know a company like it could make mice and keyboards.
Now I know. They're really good at it (this was written in 2012, obviously they've come a long way since then. Woo!)

This is a mechanical keyboard. MX Blue switches(North America). Other regions may find Brown/Red. It's a mechanical keyboard that has the qualities of other well-known creators. In every sense, they really are bringing a level of quality found in much more expensive keyboards($100-200).

I believe it takes a lot for a company to realize mechanical keyboards like this is in demand. They have a good sense like they've been building for many years.
Ever heard of Leopold Tenkeyless keyboards?
From what I see/ hear this is almost identical- layout and cable management both. Just much cheaper.

My favorites:
+Tenkeyless - sophisticated.
+Cherry Blue switches are easy on your fingers
+Rubber matte coating finish entire top body. Utter joy... my favorite feature (As you can see, the body is grey - that's the rubberized part)
+laser-etched keys of decent touch
+Heavy, overall solid
+Red WASD set! always an awesome option. Also red LEDs on select keys.
+Fn shortcuts with a windows key lock! Wow. Volume control works great as well, use it all the time.
+Detachable, gold-plated mini USB.
+$80 price point?! (Edit: lowest I've seen now is 59.00! Wow...!)

Concerns (minor flaws):
*Few too many CM logos.
*Wish it had more useful Fn shortcuts/macro key capability! The Window key lock was a great idea.
*Red LEDs might be too bright.
*Routing the wire left/right, it really doesn't stay in the channels. Keeps popping out.
