Summary: I seldom write reviews, but this is an item that I loved, that failed. It had good review, great form factor, met all my needs. A few weeks after purchase, the braided cable failed. I emailed CM and never heard back.
backspace does not work. More $$ does not mean more quality

Summary: Completely satisfied until 10 months later after purchasing. Backspace key is not working. I should've read the negative reviews and realize that many say that certain keys no longer work after and certain amount of time especially the backspace button.
Summary: Arrived with a broken space bar, it requires 1 little white cap insert on each side to work. One was missing when it arrived, I could only use 1/2 of the keyboard. I've spent a couple months looking for a replacement, sadly no one offers a spacebar with this insert.
Summary: Less than one month of light usage, backspace key died in the middle of a work day. Now using my mouse and DELETE to correct any typos I make. Spoke to Coolermaster over live chat, RMA system is also down.
Cheap connector construction ruins an otherwise good keyboard

Summary: I bought this item on June 27th 2013. Around September/October, it started malfunctioning frequently. While typing, random series of letters/numbers would appear, and the keys on the number row would stop working. I realized that this stopped when I fiddled with the cable.
Excerpt: First of all this is my first mechanical keyboard so I don't have any past experience with mechanical keyboards. I went from a Logitech membrane keyboard to this keyboard with Cherry Mx Browns and I must say I am impressed. The keyboard is very low profile, without any flashy back-lights or logos.
Summary: The keyboard, when working, is wonderful. Last month, though, when I plugged it in, the caps lock LED lights briefly, and then nothing--it doesn't show up on any USB hub or when directly inserted into my MBP, linux workstation, or windows. Something internal must have fried.
