Let’s start with the lighting. It is a nice addition to the keyboard however, getting the lighting exactly how you want it can be very difficult and frustrating. Holding the function key and choosing between F1 through to F6 might should straight forward it isn’t. Even with the manual in hand I still has a few WTF moments. I know I’m talking a lot about the RGB but as a huge fan and user of Razer’s Chroma hardware, that is my standard. When you select colours it is only Red Green and Blue. The colours sadly don’t mix and fade into each other but rather strobe from colour to colour. I’m going to assume that you who is reading this know the difference between a mechanical keyboard and a membrane keyboard. The keys are the CoolMasters Cherry Keys, they are silent and don’t make a clicking noise like the Razer mechanical keys. The keys installed in this keyboard are mechanical. I recommend if you play any fast-paced games that you get a mechanical keyboard. I have notice that even when I play it eliminates the error of pressing the wrong key. With a membrane keyboard if you just ever so slightly touch the wrong key, you can use the wrong spell and that can be the end of your hero in a match. The wrist rest is a nice addition, but the keys are much higher than normal keyboard, so the wrist rest is comfortable but does not help much as I still find myself having to lift my hand when trying to touch type. I really like the small mesh bag the keyboard came in, it will help in keeping it from getting scratched as well as 4 purple WASD keys for customization.
The keyboard is a sleek matt black design. There is a clear resin on the front of the keyboard with RGB that lights up the CoolMaster logo shape. The keys sit higher than most keyboards but it’s not too bad comfort-wise. It is quite a pleasure to type on. As I work and am still doing school, I am almost always on my computer. Having to write essays, articles and reviews, it’s pretty decent. I’m using it right now. Its far quieter than the Razer green keys but less satisfying but that just my personal preference. You must press the key in quite deep to get a response, the upside is less mistakes when typing and, in a match, but its slower to use when in intense combat situations. Gaming isn’t bad, quick response and quiet. I love how the media buttons are on the keyboard in their own section of the board. Easily accessible while in game to pause or play the music.
All in all, its not a bad keyboard. I would recommend it if you desperately needed a keyboard for your PC but if you can wait, rather get one that you want rather just getting it because is RGB and in your price range.
