Excellent keyboard for typing / programming, if a little noisy
1 January 2015
Summary: I was looking for a keyboard for typing / programming. Easy migration to typing on this keyboard, standard key layout and a decent sized backspace key. I've tried one with Cherry MX Blue keys before and found it very loud, something there's no way you could use in an open office environment.
Summary: This keyboard is great. The only reason I'm knocking off a star is because it is a little too thick (tall) for my taste. I would have preferred to have the keys a little closer to the table surface. If you use a wrist pad, it would be just right. I love typing on Cherry Brown keys.
Summary: I have spent a good chunk of time using this keyboard now and I have been overall satisfied with it's performance. The speed of the keys are extremely welcoming as you would expect from a nice mechanical keyboard.
Summary: Pleasantly surprised! Cooler master in the past (with my history that is) has made some pretty sub-par products. However, it changed a bit with this mechanical keyboard. I ordered this keyboard and a CODE keyboard from WASD keyboards.
Summary: The main caveat I have with this keyboard is that it is higher off the desk than most keyboards: probably at least five millimeters higher. If you have small hands (as I do) this is a potential issue.
Summary: This keyboard with brown switches makes typing a breeze. Not too loud and good quality. The one I have has a slight bend in the chassis which you can only tell if you push on the bottom right corner(it rocks). It's not too big of a deal because you can still type perfectly with it.
Summary: It took two months to ship, but that's getting off easy from what I've seen. For the price, it's probably one of the best out there. I'm glad it's quieter than my old keyboard with MX Blues, after acclimating it's a very comfortable typing experience.
Summary: This is a well-built, solid and satisfying keyboard which meets, but does not exceed, my hopes and expectations. While I like it better than any other keyboard I can remember using over the past 35 years, I have not found it to be impressively better than most others I have used.
Summary: Good keyboard. Nice action. Very nice price. I like it quite a bit, but I will probably buy MX Brown for my next keyboard. I have two MX Brown 10-key keyboards and thought to try out the Red for a 10-keyless (Filco was out of stock of 10-keyless browns).
