Great Cherry MX quality as can be expected but the long keys like the "space" and "enter" are very mushy feeling. This is because there is no bracket holding them up but two switch-like things ( like the plus) on each end. This kills the feel of these keys. The shift button feels unnatural sometimes when playing games. If these keys had the same system as the HyperX Alloy, which has this spring bracket that only helps the key balance, this would be an excellent keyboard. But for this very reason, I cannot use it.
Super bright and lots of customization. You can download other templates from Cooler Master's website but you have to launch a .exe to use them every time which is a bit of a bummer, but there's still plenty of customization within the software to keep you happy for awhile.
The form factor:
This keyboard is a little bulky. Somewhat talll, but if you have big hands you should be fine. CM did a great job of not putting useless buttons on the keyboard which looks great. The lighting for the Num Lock and Caps Lock are just the lights built into the switch. So if caps isn't on, there will be no lighting on that switch, but if it is on, that switch will light with your selected pattern or color.
Overall build quality:
It's a very well made keyboard and all the keys look and feel great, with the exception of the aforementioned longer keys that feel mushy. The cable is thick and should stand up to any sort of wear just fine. No carrying sleeve but it does include a dust cover so be careful traveling with it.
After using the keyboard for a few days for typing and gaming, I'm gonna have to go back to the HyperX. This keyboard has a lot of potential but the bad keys + the .exe customization kill it for me. Maybe if CM can come up with a better design and fix the software a little bit, I'll come back, but as of right now I am sticking with my HyperX Alloy.
Pros: -Bullet-Proof construction, heavy and sturdy
-Great, sturdy feeling when typing, thanks to that metal plate behind the switches for durability.
-The customization for the RGB lighting, pretty much endless (even if your a freak about customization like me XD)
-Has a detachable micro-usb port and comes with a good, braided cable. This is my go-to feature to look for when buying keyboards. (Mini or Micro USB).
-The Cherry MX Blue's feel great on this keyboard, and not mushy like some plastic keyboards do. Clickity-clack.
Cons: These are all the cons i can think about, mostly personal preference.
-The outer case count be metal, something that's really hard to find these days :/
-The Key Caps. I replaced these key caps with Dye-subbed double shot PBT gradient key caps from Massdrop. The stock key caps are decent, but ehh... I can't give up the sturdy, stubbornly stiff chalky-hard feeling of Double shot PBT. They feel amazing to type on (especially with Blues) and they never wear out, shine or show fingerprints, but i can't complain because one thing to note though is that Dye-subbed Double Shot PBT key caps with custom color, like gradient is VERY EXPENSIVE to buy, well for key caps. A full set retails for $80+ and tenkeyless being $60+. If CM put custom double shot PBT key caps on this keyboard, it would easily be at least $200.
-The only, last thing i can think about for CM to improve on this keyboard is to add USB passthrough :3
Overall, a great simplistic keyboard that has a ton of features and feels great to game and type on. I would recommend this to anybody building a new PC set up, or looking to buy a new keyboard (but of course i would hound them to change the key caps XD).
As a newbie to mechanical keyboards I recommend this one as a great beginner. The build quality is solid and it feels like time went into it. The packaging was solid. However, I am sad that after two days the price dropped by 20 dollars... It arrived before the date specified in shipping.
Top international reviews
One of the reasons I purchased this board was because it leaves out the number pad. I hoped it would make it easier for me to maintain proper posture and still have quick access to my mouse, and I am seeing the benefits so far, although it takes some getting used to. I think I will be picking up a standalone number pad to position to the right of my mouse, if even just for times when I am deep into Excel or working with finances.
I do miss having dedicated media buttons and a volume rocker, which I had on my previous board. That said, the combination of the function key and tapping the right home key media button is actually not so bad.
This purchase was also a leap from MX Reds (different keyboard) to MX Blues for me. I *love* the sound. I mostly write and code (I don't game often), and I find the extra pressure, feedback (clicking sound), and tactile bump really add up to make typing just feel more careful and deliberate.
3. Cherry MX Brown
4. "Smooth" keycaps
This was one of the few Keyboards that fit the bill. The other option was a Ducky TKL RGB board but I couldn't find it anywhere. I tested the cheaper version of this board, the Cooler Master Quickfire. I really liked that KB, and would have kept it if it wasn't for the raised lettering on the Quickfire keycaps.
The Cooler Master Keys Pro S fit all 4 of my requirements. Build quality is great, RGB lighting is very vibrant and colorful. I love the ability to change keys on the fly. The software itself isn't as robust as say the Corsair K70, but it's better than the Ducky ones (no software available to customize keys).
So far i've been very happy with this keyboard and will be keeping this one and returning the CM Quickfire.
And this all is coming from my Girly & Delicate finger which cannot feel the tactile feedback. Imagine normal fingers.
Not at all worth the +100% import duty, taxes & shipping.
You should REALLY get atleast MX CLEAR switches to get SOME tactile feedback)
Upon purchasing this I had read A LOT of reviews on it and generally it was amazing, however there were a few I came across that had serious issues from more 'experienced' mechanical keyboard enthusiasts about the keys being weird and such. Needless to say I was hesitant to get this at first but eventually pulled the trigger. Boy was I glad I did!
I got the MX Brown variant and coming from the Razer Blackwidow 2013 which was a green backlit MX Blue fullsize it was quite the change!
Immediately I love the Browns as opposed to the Blues especially for gaming, although when typing I do miss the Blues a bit however I'm completely accustomed to the Browns now so that is mostly gone.
Having the TKL is very nice, I only ever used the numpad for what most people usually use it for which is number crunching in calculator which is often-ish for me but for the amount of time I used it learning to use the number keys along the top wasn't a big deal.
Getting rid of that terrible Razer software felt so great, and not being 'forced' to install a software to use this keyboard made it feel even greater! (Although I still installed it, but knowing I didn't have to and I wouldn't really be missing out on much felt great!).
Speaking of the software it's solid software, very simple to use and easy to navigate. I wish other manufacturers would take this more seriously.
As for the keyboard itself I mean the keycaps feel nice and solid and the backlighting is nice and bright.
The only nit-picky thing I would change is the position of the media function buttons, have the the play/pause be on 'Home' flanked by forward/backward while 'End' handle stop while being flanked by volume up/down. Ridiculously minor issue, and only because I use it quite often. I have gotten used to it however!
Apart from all this, I must mention that I bought a wrist rest to use with this keyboard and that improves things quite a bit, It'd be a much worse experience without one personally but most people it probably wouldn't bother. I won't take a star off for this because the point of this keyboard is the small footprint which if they included a built-in wrist rest would defeat the purpose of that.
That aside if you're interested in the wrist rest I am using it is the 'Glorious PC Gaming Race' foam TKL wrist rest.
Overall great purchase and I doubt anybody would truly be disappointed with this.
In the end I chose this keyboard because it was highly rated and suggested by other reviews and friends. I got a used one for around 135$ total. It was in perfect condition.
Two things to note: Caps lock and Scroll lock button's LEDs are off by default to indicate that you dont have those buttons enabled. (Replaces separate LED indicators since this keyboard doesn't have them)
Second thing is I played around with all the keys and I also hit the Windows button lock (FN + F9) and I thought my windows button was broken but I actually locked it.
Since I use it with my MacBook at work, I did not find a mac version of their COOLER MASTER PORTAL V1.00 application for the keyboard. Also tried on this Windows PC at home and I had problem running the application...
But, in the end the app is not needed since you can cycle through the different LED modes, set keyboard macros, and set your own custom per-key LEDs simply with the keyboard shortcuts.
If you have any questions let me know, I also added pictures and a video of my pudding keycaps.
Keyboard itself, I am very pleased with. I tried out cherry reds at a computer shop beforehand and the keys were perfect for me as I'm a very light typer. The coolermaster software is pretty extensive and has great presets + easy to navigate and change colors. My favorite so far is the blue raindrop setting. IF THIS IS YOUR FIRST MECH, HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU TRY OUT DIFFERENT KEYS AT A NEARBY SHOP THAT WILL ALLOW YOU TO TEST THEM.
The software and colour LEDs are what make this stand out among other backlit keyboards. The configurator is easy to use and download. CoolerMaster also provides an SDK on their website so you can download or create custom patterns as well - so possibilities are literally endless. Personally I'm a big fan of the colours.
My only complaint is that there are no dedicated media keys but that's minor. Media functions are accessed via Fn key combinations.
