      This keyboard is pretty sweet. I really like the feel of the mechanical switches. I would say that it feels equal to or better than some of the higher priced models. When I was in the store looking at my options I noticed that this was the only model that had RGB lights on each key and didn't cost more than $100. Compared to the HyperX, Steelseries, and Corsair boards for around the same price, you get way more features on the CM one. The top panel is a really cool brushed aluminum that makes the board look premium compared to the plastic on other models. The keys are also floating so when I get my Cheetos dust and chicken tendie crumbs on my board it is easy to clean. I am really happy with it so far and feel like that at the $80 price point there isn't anything better.

      Spectacular entry level RGB mechanical keyboard

      I honestly can't say a negative thing about this board. Coming from a standard membrane keyboard, this is a huge improvement. Typing on this is a dream and isnt much loader than my old one. The linear switches are a dream to type on and even better to game on. I play mostly FPS games and these switches make pressing from any place on a key as smooth as butter and a huge improvement from my last membrane. When it comes to the RGB, with so many options and ways of controlling them from either on-board keys or software, it really doesn't get better than this, especially in this price point. Overall, if you are at all interested in mechanicals, this should be your go to keyboard. Plus, the price at my local store was actually a couple bucks cheaper than listed online.

      Smooth and Solid

      I got this keyboard not too long ago, and I'm hooked! I never really used mechanical keyboards before, but it was time to try it out, and I didn't know what I was missing! The keys feel great and responsive, just enough push-back to give some great sensitivity on the WASD keys. It's backlit so I don't have to squint when typing or gaming in a darker room, and the software lets you turn down the brightness a little for folks with sensitive eyes, like myself. The full RGB brightness was pretty staggering at full power, but hey, if that's what you like, blast them colors! As horribly cliche' as it sounds, the CK552 is form, function, and solid for a decent price! (golf claps in Cooler Master's general direction)

      I was recently looking to get my first mechanical keyboard and I decided to go with this one. Such an incredible keyboard for the price! It has Gateron Red switches which people say they are smoother than cherry's, it is made of plastic and aluminum so it feels like great quality, has RGB lighting and has the numpad! Overall probably the best deal on a keyboard especially if it is on sale. It also has very little to no branding if you like a nice clean look. This is probably the best keyboard to get as a first mechanical keyboard!

      This is my second gaming keyboard, my first being a Corsair K55 RGB. That was by no means a bad keyboard. However, I kind of knew I wasn't going to be using all those extra buttons. This Cooler Master was a blind buy for me. It was, from a quick overlook, a simple mechanical keyboard. I thought I would have to control the RGB lighting with software, but that isn't the case. The Cooler Master logo button plus whatever key you push is all you need. And there are many options at your control. It has a nice feel. Sounds of the keys are nice to me, which was pretty much what I was really looking for in this keyboard.

      This is probably the best bang for buck mechanical keyboard you can buy. I was skeptical at first because I prefer the clicky switches but decided to try it out due to the friendly price. It feels very smooth looks durable and professional, feels very fast in terms of reaction time from gaming. Feels great on typing and not too loud at all. The press on a key feels solid and not mushy or bouncy

      I was looking for a keyboard for my desktop gaming setup and heard great reviews about this one. I got it on sale so it was not terribly expensive. The key customization is great. The keys are responsive. I have just started using mouse and keyboard for gaming so it takes a little getting use to. It is great for typing as well.

      Its a great keyboard for the price. The rgb are awesome and colorful. My only complaint is not with the product but the key switches. Sometimes ill press keys without noticing bc my hand is resting just a little too heavy on the keyboard. However that is just red switches .
