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
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
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

    Cooler Master SGK-6030-KKCR1-US reviews

    MasterKeys Pro S Mechanical Keyboard with Intelligent RGB Backlighting (Cherry MX Red) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing keyboard! I got this keyboard to replace my Corsair Strafe RGB with Cherry MX Silent switches, I wanted a TKL keyboard with RGB since I pretty much never use the NumPad. I have to say this keyboard with Cherry MX Browns exceeded all my expectations, from the moment I got it I was typing a lot better and more precise compared to usig the Silent switches which had 0 tactile feedback. Though key switches are all personal preference I would recommend the Brown switches. As for the lighting, on most RGB KEYBOARDS the why light either has a blue or yellowish tint, and this one the closest to white as my laptops white LED keyboard. The software for the lighting is very simple to use. I have 0 complaints about this keyboard and would recommend this to anyone looking to switch from full size to a TKL keyboard.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Minimalist RGB Keyboard Pros: High quality LEDS, good build quality. I enjoy that the MasterKeys does not need software to run cool RGB LED setups. Cons: The media keys are positioned well, but I wish there was a mute key as well. Also there is no Mac version of the software which is kinda annoying.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing keyboard Well built keyboard, a little on the heavy side due to the metal frames. Detachable cable, so you can put it away after you're done using it or change out the cable if it gets damaged. Takes a bit of time to get use to if you haven't used cherry switches before but keyboard can be extremely loud compared to the rest of the keys.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great, but not perfect keyboard. I use this item primarily for gaming, as most tenkeyless users will be. The brown switches are great for gaming and typing and have the same Cherry MX key stems as any other Cherry MX keyboard. They keyboard has a great feel due to it's metal plate located inside, makes it feel premium and gives it a good weight to it. The RGB lighting is good, and the software is easy to use, and I am sure some will find the ability to control the keyboard with only Function keys a great feature. I like this keyboard a lot but it's not perfect. Some other keyboards feature better RGB lighting due to their better designed for it key stems. But hey don't feel as good as these. And some other keyboards feature better lighting integration with games that have profiles created for them. The coolermaster logo is just not a very nice looking logo to me so I am sad to see it printed on the windows keys... but these are minor quibbles with a really well implemented TKL RGB Cherry mX brown switch keyboard, of which, there are not very many with a nice software such as this has.
