The compact, tenkeyless version of the MK730 mechanical gaming keyboard is the scrappy, lovable younger brother that somehow beats you regularly online. The strikingly sexy floating key design with brushed aluminium profile gives way to durable Cherry MX switches, intuitive On-the-fly Controls and hybrid key rollover to ensure peak performance through the toughest battles. If that weren't enough, a removable magnetic wrist rest gives comfort during long sessions, while an RGB lightbar surrounding the bottom and sides gives subtle illumination that doesn't come off as lonely peacocking. When you’re in a groove, the last thing you want to do is Alt+Tab out to adjust your keyboard settings. The MK730 combats that with an innovative On-the-fly System. In the heat of battle, easily adjust per-key backlighting, switch lighting modes and even record macros with just a few keypresses. Get the functionality of the software without needing to have software bloating your system - saving you time and precious PC resources. The MK730 red switch keyboard employs the same rollover technologies available in all our MasterKeys Pro line, resulting in the most efficient, accurate anti-ghosting technology yet. N-key rollover works in tandem with 6-key rollover to ensure that every single keypress is correctly detected, no matter how many are pressed and how much CSI-level hacking you’re doing. Rest easy knowing no matter how fast and furious it gets, your keyboard can handle it. Say goodbye to ragequits due to crappy hardware. The MK730 comes equipped with a 32-bit ARM Cortex processor for consistent precision and performance. Register keystrokes instantly. Save and execute commands and macros in a snap. Thanks to the MasterKeys On-the-fly system, get an instant advantage over your opponent and beat them to the punch every time.

High quality - I wanted an aluminum body to avoid keyboard flex, and this has none - to be expected. Cherry MX switches feel fine, I haven't purchased too many mechanical keyboards to draw comparisons, but most people online trust their quality and durability. This looks and feels expensive because it is.
Well thought out - The included, magnetic wrist wrest was a huge selling point for me. Wrist rests, in general, are underrated in gaming, and although wrist rests do exist, they're usually cheap, third-party add-ons versus an actual design choice. The key placement seems evenly spaced and not cramped; this is a true TKL. There are kickstands to raise the keyboard, which might be a big deal to some. Lastly, I appreciate that the keycap designs don't have "gamer" text and, with RGB off, can come off as a high-end, regular keyboard for everyday use.
USB-C input is garbage - The included braided cable is an excellent addition and would have been a pro if it didn't take 15 minutes for the keyboard to turn on during setup. The issue was that the USB-C cable kept sliding from its input. I had to cram it in before the keyboard turned on. I'm already afraid that the keyboard wire drag (I came from using, almost exclusively, wireless keyboards) will pop the cable out in the middle of a gaming session. Not a fan.
Weak magnets - The magnetic wrist rest is an excellent addition, but the magnetism is so weak that it’s almost pointless. It's just barely strong enough to create a stable hold. If I adjust the placement of the keyboard in the slightest, the wrist rest pops right off. How hard is it to include stronger magnets?
Unnecessary lighting - These light bars people keep complaining about; I'm also not a fan of this “feature.” As I began this review, don't expect RGB lighting critiques. Maybe it's because I'm a minimalist, but there's no need for all the light bars on the sides of the keyboard, I'm not sure what it adds, and it makes me wish they weren't there or to cover them up entirely.
Red switches? - I'm mixed on red switches in general. This is not a criticism against the keyboard but more personal preference. Please keep in mind that, at least with red switches, you won't get any obvious input feedback as you would brown or blue switches. Blues are obnoxiously loud to type on, but you can't beat how intense the feedback is; not only can I hear the keyboard clicks on blues but can feel it when wearing my noise-canceling headset. It's oddly satisfying, and I rarely bottom out on blues.
Would I recommend this keyboard? Yes, in the ideal environment. With this price tag, you should know what switches to choose, have tight control around your RGB light settings, be neutral on whether you want an attachable wrist rest and get a wire bungee to give slack to the included USB-C cable. At that point, this is a 5-star keyboard. FYI, I typed this review on this keyboard.
Update - upon learning more about gaming keyboard keycaps I wish for the price cooler master would have included some pbt keycaps instead of their basic abs ones. I upgraded afterwards
very quality keyboard. a++
edit: the left shift key isnt working properly anymore. i play a lot of fps games that require me to be sprinting and when pressing shift it will double press on its own sometimes and cancels my sprint. i've tried everything to try and fix it but i wasnt able to.
Bravo Cooler Master...very nice keyboard!
This keyboard sounds better, feels better, and looks better. The size is perfect. The detachable wrist wrest is great and the USB c being detachable is great for when you want more desk real estate or for travel. Best keyboard I have owned.
