great clicky clack!


i really wish it had a USB port on the right hand side just like my daskeyboard has. i use that port on my daskeyboard for the micro wireless mouse adapter. this way my mouse is never more than a few inches away from the adapter, which provides for a...

perfect size. who really needs a numeric keypad

Great compact kb


Awesome mechanical keys ; Compact form factor ; High quality fiber covered usb cable that can disconnect from the board itself as well as the PC

Noisy. The price to be paid for that feedback

Best budget Mech Keyboard


It's Blue switches so keep in mind that they make a lot of noise.

There are cheaper boards than this but you'll see the compromise for those cheaper boards. This board offers the best performance for the cheapest price

None so far

Works 95% of the time


long story short this is a bad keyboard i will not be getting another one this keyboard is either made cheaply or the product line has horrible quality control

Very cheap mechincal keyboard ; it works most of the time ; keyboard is 4 pounds has 0 flex to it

sometimes just does not work will have to restart my computer several times to get it work again ; f keys feel different than the whole other keyboard ; for some reason it only works in one usb port my old keyboard's work in every port

Great Keyboard, good price


This keyboard is a little cheaper than most mechanical keyboards. It lacks the bells and whistles, like backlighting, and audio/mic ports. But if you are looking for a great keyboard for a reasonable price, this is it.

This is a great keyboard, and if you are hesitant, don't be. CM makes great products

None really

Great Keyboard


I wanted to get this in Cherry MX Browns, but when when I saw the blues for a sale at I think $50? I couldn't pass it up. It was a great investment and I love it.

Feels really nice to type ; Compact, Tenkeyless

Sometimes my quick double taps don't register because I didn't depress the key enough to reactivate the switch. That's the design of blues though, and I was already aware of that ; I'm also not a big fan of the clicks, but again, I knew that when buying

Great So far


Owned keyboard for 5 months now, no problems ; Compact, doesn't steal desk area from your mouse ; Heavy, high quality build ; Braided cable is very high quality ; Mechanical, so any switches you break can be individually replaced. (None needed to be...

Mini-usb is used to connect the cord to the keyboard. This means plugging and unplugging a lot will eventually fatigue the relatively fragile solder points. However, for me, the keyboard never moves ; Due to angles, can be a bit awkward to actually...

Owned it for nearly a year


Sometimes I really miss the numbers keys and wish I had direct shortcut keys. It's a great keyboard but it's ideally for road warriors/lan gamers or someone who needs to fit a keyboard on a small space/surface.

Great mechanical keyboard. Cherry MX blues feel awesome to type on and play games on. It's nice to have a compact keyboard to lug around

Cherry MX blues are LOUD, but everyone knows's part of the deal ; WASD keys and some of the left side command keys have faded lettering because i've had my fingers on them constantly, but this has happened to all keyboards i've owned for gaming

Poor Customer Support


Feels nice to type on Cherry Blue MX Switches. Decent build quality and price

Red WASD keycaps fade very easily. Contacted CM support about this and was told they would replace them and send them out within the next few days. It's been over 3 weeks and I haven't even received a tracking number. Very poor and slow service from...

Good for the price I paid


I jumped on this as soon as it was on sale. I needed a tenkey-less mechanical keyboard with PS2 port. This fit all of those requirements. The blue switches are OK, but I think I would prefer reds for gaming. Feels like there is too much distance...

Good value for a mech board ; Minimalist design ; Spare keys for WASD keys ; Would have liked to see a function key on the left side instead of the right side ; On-key lights for capslock, winlock, etc are cool

Spacebar squeaks sometimes ; replacement keys only look right on WASD. What about us ESDF fans?? We don't have to move our fingers for typing
