Very nice keyboard


Very high bang/buck ratio keyboard with very good quality overall. I'm not a big fan of ABS keycaps but I knew it had them when I ordered it - and Coolermaster has to cut a corner somewhere in order to provide a keyboard with such quality at this...

Nice weight & very solid feel. No flex when typing. Just a very quality feel overall

The indicator LEDs (caps lock, etc) are a bit too bright for my taste

Great Keyboard


Had this keyboard since the spring and I love it. First Mechanical keyboard from a "gaming" keyboard. Repainted with white plastic paint and put some different color keys on it. Feels great typing is smooth and easy to use, planning to get another to...

Great compact keyboard ; Red switches are awesome ; Easily altered/moded

none yet

The keyboard is black not grey


Newegg was no help in determining if this product had a grey or black body. The pictures shows both models, and they told me to contact coolermaster to find out, like they'd know what stock newegg has...For the record the keyboard is black, which is...

Wow this keyboard is amazing. It's much heavier than my HP keyboard but typing on it is an absolute dream!! I got the brown switches and they feel amazing. They actually sound how I'd imagine the blues sound (because I'm bottoming them out) so if you...

None so far, this keyboard is amazing! The tactile feedback from the brown switches is hardly noticeable, but I actually like it this way

Huge improvement vs non-mechanical keyboards


This is not meant to be a comparison with other mechanical keyboards. But if you are still deciding whether you should purchase your first mechanic keyboards, hopefully this review will help you make up your mind. The cons I listed, as you can see, are...

Comparing with non-mechanical keyboards ; 1. feel much better to type on ; 2. less fatigue ; 3. better accuracy because of better feedback ; 4. Feels very solid and sturdy ; In general ; 1. No numpad. allows positioning mouse close to the center. more...

Comparing with non-mechanical keyboards ; 1, Louder ; 2. Higher overall height. This is a con if you like those flatter keyboards ; In general ; 1. The font type is kind of ugly (or I should say unique.) Wish they had used more standard font

Cooler Master SGK-4000-GKCC1-US


remember this has no numpad, so if you need one of those you don't want this

Small enough to fit my desk ; comfortable for me to keep my hands on ; has a slight tilt even without the flips ; switches feel great, especially for gaming ; braided cord ; they took away all of the logos on the picture displayed here ; red keycaps if...

more expensive than a normal keyboard (but cheaper than most other mechanical keyboards)

Consumer review by:

Very sturdy and good quality.


I found this to be a very solid keyboard. I got it on sale for 54 dollars shipped and so far I can't say I regret it. It has VERY nice build quality. If you're looking at a cheap entry level mechanical keyboard you really can't be disappointed with...

I've really liked this keyboard a lot so far. The black keys are quite stiff compared to my old Blackwidows Cherry Blues but I'm sure I'll get used to it sooner than later. I love the compact feel of the keyboard overall and the build quality, for the...

I miss the clicking sound the blue switches gave me, but the dull sound that this keyboards key makes is quite charming in its own way. It's a lot quieter then other switches. My other complaint would be that the red LED lights are a smidge on the...

Backspace stopped working


It has been more than 30 days so now I have to deal with the manufacturer.

Great feel. Love the switches also good price

Backspace key was acting up then stopped working completely

Consumer review by:

excellent compact keyboard


I have a Corsair K60 kb at home which has cherry mx reds and I am tempted to replace with this one!

I ordered this for work. As a developer I use my keyboard quite a bit and I am starting to get some RSI ; The keyboard is nice and heavy and the brown switches feel great. I'm sure after some practice of typing lighter I will become faster and have...

something I didn't know before ordering was the context menu key (right click) I was used to using (normal on many keyboards) was replaced with a Fn key which is used to access multimedia actions

Consumer review by:

Glad I picked this one


Cherry Brown keys feel so sweet. No clicky noise to deal with, but great sound and feel ; Small footprint is a great boon for my cramped desk ; Construction of the keyboard is solid. I think this is a great deal for the price ; Replaceable keys is...

Need to get a wrist wrest, would be nice to have an option to have a modular wrest. Oh well ; Might be cool to have it backlit, but no big deal ; I've read the reviews about the usb connection to the board itself so I plan to never mess with that
