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 brown 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.

The keys float a little, for the price i expect the keys to not jiggle at all, but they do a little.
Still, huge fan. Would recommend.
En general, recomendado
Feels great and super responsive.
First things first. This keyboard is a dream for a typist. The keys are tactile enough for a pleasant feedback, but still easy to press. Actuation happens just before the tactile feedback, which is slightly less than ideal, but is fine for all intents and purposes. The traditional layout and keycaps mean your fingers aren't hunting for keys and typos are avoided.
The main downside: This keyboard is incredibly loud. The switches may be quiet, but the sound of the keys bottoming out is just as loud as anything on the market. It isn't suitable for a coworking space or most offices, which is a real bummer.
Build-wise, the whole thing is great. The keyboard itself is compact and sturdy. The included USB C cable is great. The only thing of questionable build quality is the cheapish feeling magnetic wrist strap, which is fine but decidedly cheap feeling compared to the keyboard itself. Also, it would be nice if the keyboard included a travel case to keep it and the wrist pad safe in transit.
But I'm nit-picking. Overall, I'm calling this a great option, but far from perfect.
I'm not using the magnetic wrist rest that comes with the keyboard. I already had another wrist rest from another setup. I think the glorious PC gaming master race wrist pad is better then the wrist pad that was included here, because it's more comfortable, raises your wrists higher to the point where they are level with the keys (which helps reduce the chances of getting carpal tunnel), is bigger, and also doesn't cover up the really cool front facing LED on the keyboard.
Now, you'll notice that the keycaps I'm using are also different. I think if you're really into the RGB colors of mechanical keyboards, you should consider replacing the ABS keycaps that come with this keyboard with acrylic double shot ABS keycaps. Those keys look super nice on a keyboard with cherry MX RGB lighting, as you can see in the pictures and video. The keycaps I'm using are red dragon A105 acrylic keycaps, which typically cost $10 to $15. Totally worth it for the aesthetics, and I personally like the super sleek and smooth feeling of those keycaps. It complements this keyboard really well.
Initially, my only complaint was that they replaced the right click button on the right side of the keyboard with a 2nd windows button. This was annoying because I actually liked the right click key, and the button remapping software doesn't have the ability to reassign the 2nd windows button to a right click key: you can only assign it keys that already exist on the keyboard. However, shift + f10 is another way that you can right click with keyboards in general. So I used the software for this keyboard to assign the 2nd windows key to a macro: shift + f10. And I got my right click key back! ^_^
I did not get money or freebies for writing this review. This is not the first mechanical keyboard model I have used over the years, but it may become my last!
I’m glad that I’ve gone from the full keyboard layout with numpad to TKL. Although I actually use a numpad fairly often, I find it much more convenient and ergonomical to have a separate numpad on the right side of my mouse. Cherry Browns are the perfect switch for me and these are authentic Cherry Brown RGB switches, but this is not a review of the Cherry switch or the TKL layout:
I am most thrilled with the on-board storage and CPU features of the keyboard. There are 4 profiles you can customize. ANY key can be remapped to another key or macro, so you can make use of any remaining redundant keys like ‘End’ or you could go wild and invent your own keyboard layout. In my case, I remapped ‘PGUP’, ‘PGDN’, and ‘PAUSE’ to control the volume and add a mute/unmute key. (FYI: when making a macro, you will need to “record” key-presses, so if you want to map a key that doesn’t exist on this board like ‘Mute’, you should also plug in a keyboard that has the key you need to record.)
The amount of RGB customization is also extraordinary. You can fine tune a large number of effects and those settings are also stored on the board. The best part about having all of your settings stored in the keyboard’s memory is that you can enjoy all of the benefits and features of the keyboard without any software (although the software makes the initial setup easier). Once it’s set up, you can plug the keyboard into any other computer or use any other operating system and your keyboard retains all macros, mappings, RGB settings, profiles, etc without the need of software. Those of us using Linux distros should appreciate that – I surely do!
The cable is detachable and uses a non proprietary cable, which means if the cable gets damaged or worn, you can just buy any USB-C cable. The cable that is included is a well-made, durable, braided USB-C to “regular” USB-A. The feet seem really sturdy and durable as well.
Others have said the wrist rest is insufficient. I actually like it, but to me this is an “extra” when buying a keyboard and is also a part that may need to be replaced a few times over the life of the board. I’ve been using the included wrist rest and honestly, it’s better than some high-tier rests available stand-alone.
I also appreciate CoolerMaster not making the board overly obnoxious with logos and branding. The board is stunning enough for anyone who is into mechanical keyboards to initiate a conversation about it.
Solid construction, great typing feel (pick the right switch type for you!), good backlight shine thru the keycaps, wrist support is comfy and easily removed when wanted thanks to it's awesome magnetic attachment, multi-media keys are well placed, for shortcut loves having a windows key on both sides is great and rare on TKL's, don't need to use the software to configure it for basic stuff.
The software for configuring the keyboard is trash.
Love it. While I'm not a fan of gamer aesthetic keyboards, they're usually quality mechanicals without being ridiculously expensive so I deal with it. That game aesthetic is very lightly applied to this keyboard, it'd look great in a twitch stream or on a lawyer-trying-to-impress-high-end-clients desk. My only complaint is the janky software, but all I wanted to do was set a profile that was all white and not too bright, and one for all lights off, and I could do that on the keyboard itself without too much effort.
Anyway, the squishy leathery wrist rest is nice but I don't use it because it kinda defeats the point of being super compact. The board's feet are a little steep but that's fine. The keycap layout is standard, which is really nice coming from a Corsair. I now have the option to buy custom keycaps in the future.
There are a couple of minor issues with this board though, most notably that the cable routing channel doesn't hold the cable when the feet are deployed. The RGB control is sophisticated, but also finicky. And if you turn the keyboard on its side, the flat metal surface means any accumulated debris will spill out instead of staying put until you actually clean it.
Overall I would say that this is definitely a good purchase, especially as your first mechanical keyboard.
