I've been waiting for this keyboard since it was announced at CES 2018. Cherry MX red keys, a full layout, rgb, quality looking build, and analog aimpad keys, it checked every box. However, I have been let down with the quality on TWO of these keyboards.
On my first keyboard, 8 of the keys were damaged. The damage varied from keys being creaky, having "bumps" as you pressed down on them (keep in mind that these are supposed to be linear switches), and the print screen key continuously falling off and being unable to be reattached. I emailed Coolermaster, and they assured me that this must be a fluke and that I should get another one. Desperate to enjoy this keyboard, I did just that.
After returning the first keyboard and waiting for shipping on the second one, it has just arrived today. This time, I did not even bother plugging the keyboard and immediately went to test it. It was the same thing, but with a different assortment of keys, hence why I am leaving this review. If I am paying $200 for a keyboard, I expect for none of the keys to have any issues, let alone 8.
