It features an RGB LED backlight that supports 16.7 million colors, a 72 MHz ARM Cortex M3 32-bit processor, 512kB of built-in memory, on-the-fly recording for programmable macros and lighting, a polling rate of 1000 Hz, a repeat rate of 1, 2, 4, and 8x, and a response rate of 1 ms. This keyboard is protected by a limited 2-year warranty.

Cherry MX Red Switches

Mechanical keyboards utilize a different type of key switch technology for a more durable and unique typing experience. The Cherry MX Red switch has an actuation force of 45g and features a linear travel with no tactile bump. This can be beneficial for users who don't need the tactility of other switches. Additionally, with close actuation and release points, Cherry MX Red switches allow for easier double-tapping. Unlike Cherry MX Blue switches, these do not have an audible "click" mechanism, allowing for a quieter operation. Noise generated from this keyboard will be from the key either springing back into place or "bottoming out" – making contact with the back plate after a particularly hard press

Product Features

Redesigned & Redefined
The interior of this keyboard has been redesigned with RGB backlighting by modifying the printed circuit board (PCB) with small cutouts to let the LEDs sit snugly against the switches, allowing genuine Cherry MX switches to be used
Illumination
The MasterKeys Pro radiates almost any color you want. Change and customize the color with or without software. LEDs include multiple modes of operation, including Color Wave, Breathing, and unique responsive effects
Processing Power
The MasterKeys Pro is outfitted with a powerful ARM Cortex M3 processor. Clocking in at 72 MHz, the processor is up to 25% faster than keyboards that use the Cortex M0 processor, which greatly unlocks the potential for the MasterKeys Pro On-the-Fly System. Save and execute commands and macros with less loading and waiting
On-the-Fly System
The MasterKeys Pro utilizes the processing power of the ARM Cortex M3 for its advanced On-the-Fly system. LED lighting modes, repeat rate adjustment, multimedia keys, and macro recording, combined with four profile keys, enable you to control almost all aspects of the keyboard at your fingertips. There is no need to Alt+Tab and open up the software
Macro and Profile Support
Four profile keys offer quick backlighting and macro recording. Program multiple keystrokes to a single key or change per-key backlighting with intuitive keyboard commands. Users can also program keys with different colors to help learn the in-game keybinds faster
Status Indicator System
Navigate the On-the-Fly system and know what settings you have selected by just glancing at the keyboard. When holding down the FN key, users can see what profile and repeat rate they're currently on, as well as whether or not the Windows key lock is activated. They are also able to see the brightness levels of colors selected for the red, green, and blue keys
Software
Straightforward software lets you fine-tune RGB color and speed settings for modes like Color Wave, Star Effect, and Rain Drop. Users are also able to hold left click to brush on colors for per-key backlighting, making LED customization a breeze. Backup and save your gaming profiles to share with fans and the community
Anti-Ghosting Technology
Anti-ghosting technology features two technologies rolled into one, making the keyboard's functions and macros compatible even on iOS systems. The N-key and 6-key rollover have been combined together, helping to ensure each keypress is correctly detected regardless of how many keys are pressed. If six or more keys are pressed, it automatically switches over to N-key rollover

    MasterKeys Pro L Mechanical Keyboard with Intelligent RGB Backlighting (Cherry MX Red) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Keyboard with One Flaw for Mech Keyboard Nerds Got this as my first mech keyboard diverging off of various OEM Dell and chiclet-ey Logitech stuff previously and it sent me down the rabbit hole. Previously almost all I cared about was full-size and white back-lighting because of key shortcuts and dark studio environments (when I'm so lucky). Now I buy switch testers and obsess about "tactility". Many things I absolutely love about this deck: MX switches, stiff plate, abundant lighting options with both software and on-the-fly control, 108-key layout, etc.� But most of all it's an understated, classic, "coder"-feeling design as opposed to the over-detailed, oddly-shaped gamer stuff that's out there with the wrapped plates and the diagonal cutouts and the hey hey. This makes it a visually versatile piece of kit. You can turn the lighting off, put some nice caps on there and have something elegant, take it any direction you want.� This brings me to the keyboard's one major flaw: keycap compatibility. I thought its black case, flat lines and corners, and full, uninterrupted 108 key surface would look great with a nice, low-profile set of DSA Dolch caps, so I ordered some. Disappointed to report that the radius of the fillets on the keyboard's faceplate is too large, bringing the inner corners of the faceplate in far enough so that the faceplate interferes with DSA keys in corner positions (ESC, CTRL, BACK SPACE, etc.). This is bad enough that, though you can install the keys, once you press them down they will be held down by the corners and stay stuck down instead of springing back up as they should, requiring you to pry them back up with a blade before you can remove them with a keycap puller.� This makes the MasterKeys Pro L completely DSA-incompatible (no Granite for you!), but if you're sticking with OEM profile, Cherry profile, or even SA profile (I've had mixed results with SA) it's still a fantastic keyboard. The only other quibble I have with this keyboard is the white plate. I understand why manufacturers spec white plates: to reflect LEDs more effectively. But more and more I think that, unless I have an awesome-looking stainless steel or brass plate in there, I don't really want to ever see it when the LEDS are off. I think it makes a lot more sense to spec a black keyboard with a black plate. LEDs are so bright these days that they really don't need any help anyway, and seeing that plastic-looking white surface between keys in daylight with the RGB off instead of having it disappear to the eye like I think it should makes a very nice keyboard look a little chintzy. I dug around online and found that iKBC puts black plates in their black MF108s and just as I thought, they look really great. Hmm. So: DSA-incompatible and white plate, but I otherwise love this keyboard.
