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 blue 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.

So clumsy me drops a whole cup of juice on the keyboard, panics and unplug it and run it down the faucet, yes, the faucet. Removed all the keys and cleaned it thoroughly. Left it to dry for about a week and plugged it in. THE KEYBOARD STILL WORKS. Build quality of this is AMAZING. 5 Stars all day everyday!
Si buscas un teclado en este rango de precios definitivamente este es uno que no debe pasar desapercibido. La construcción del teclado es bastante resistente pero al mismo tiempo es bastante liviano (al menos más de lo que pensaba).
Es un teclado que se siente de calidad, la fuente de las keycaps es normalita, lo que permite poder usarse en entornos laborales sin problema, manteniendo cierta elegancia y seriedad.
La iluminación es RGB, la iluminación es fuerte, agradable y de calidad. Tiene iluminación en los bordes lo cual es un bonito detalle.
Si eres usuario Cherry Red de toda la vida posiblemente te cueste un poco acomodarte al tacto pues con los cherrys azules tienes que hacer un poco más de fuerza, sin embargo es una experiencia que vale la pena probar y el teclado no decepciona en ningún aspecto.
En resumen, es un teclado que vale lo que cuesta.
Not a bad thing though, came from having two razor keyboards and honestly the keys feel better.
-Wrist rest can hang off the table about 50% of the width, to give you a feel for the magnetism power. Not very strong, I would prefer it a bit stronger, but I can see the appeal in having a wrist wrest that can be adjusted very easily.
- When i compare the colours to razor keyboards, I would say it is slightly less bright. However, it is nowhere near as bad as many reviews made it out to be. The translucent tubing that lights up at the bottom of each key makes up the difference for me.
Only had it for about a week so I can't comment on durability other than it feels solid with no sign of key caps fading.
Es muy cómodo el tacto es agradable y rápido la respuesta porque es Cherry blue.
Lo malo fue que mi unidad vino defectuoso porque a la semana las luces RGB de la fecha "DEL" empezó a fallar, parpadea sin ningún motivo.
It would have been really nice to have one or two additional ports off the keyboard as that is often a premium feature and this is a premium keyboard. It comes with a nice wrist rest though it is smooth instead of felt-like. It also comes with a carrying bag for those that want to take the keyboard with them. And it comes with a bag containing nine extra purple keys so that you can have purple ASDW or arrow keys and/or a purple Escape key. And there's a key puller in the bag too.
The packaging is over the top. It helps to have a pocketknife handy as you have to cut the tape on both ends of the box to slide the contents out.
The keys have a slightly sharper edge than the Max Blackbird. I don't think that it matters; just something that I noticed while comparing the two.
I'm running this on a Mac and I'll need to figure out how to get the function keys working. I think that it took me a while to get things working on the Max Blackbird too.
At any rate, a very nice keyboard.
Update: I bought another one for home and another one with Cherry Brown keys for my daughter. They're all great.
Pluses: genuine Cherry blue switches, good build quality. Multi-color , if you are into that. Wrist support.
Nice brushed aluminum looks. Detachable Usb C to plain USB keyboard connector.
Nice layout. Nice set of double shot keycaps, with good looking lettering. Does not "echo" or resonate as the keys bottom out.
Minuses: Pricey compared to lesser brand mech keyboard clones (e.g. Redragon) . No caps lock status led. Does not have enough heft for my taste. "Over the top" in terms of led configurability, it is possible to accidentally mess up the configuration, so that it stops working and has to be reset. No way to angle the keyboard _away_ from you so you could elevate your wrist. No extra usb port(s)
Sometimes, it comes up "dead" after a reboot, and has to be unplugged and re-plugged to get it light up and start working again. One key command you need to learn first, is FN-E to reset the keyboard to default settings if it hangs.
The keyboard has a zillion possible way to configure various keycap light behaviors, macros.
This is not necessarily a fault of this particular keyboard, all RGB keyboards tend to be like this... It merely tends to annoy me.
The genuine cherry blue switches are nice, but I actually do not mind the "Outemu blue" clones common in less expensive clone keyboards, such as the Redragons. Honestly, side-by-side I cannot tell the difference.
If you are into high end switches, there are better options than the Cherry-s (e.g.: Halo-s, Holy Pandas ) and better keybeds (E.g.: Drop ctrl. Razer). For this price, I expected solder-less key socket bed,
All in all, It does not suck, and it grows on me. The only thing that consistently annoys me is the lack of status leds. I will keep it. but It lives in a strange land:
- For a little more money you could get something much nicer ( e.g. the Drop Ctrl)
- For for a lot less money you could get something almost as good
The most painful missing feature IMO is is the caps lock led.
The token wrist support is thin, and magnetically attached. Better than nothing, but something twice as thick would be nice.
If it had some interesting features, such as a solderless keyswitch bed, and capsLock status light I would definitely
rate it a lot higher. Will try to pull some switches when my switch puller comes in and update the review.
One though: A high quality keycap set matters more than you would expect, and if you add the cost of a keycap set to one of those cheap clone keyboards, the total price almost comes to the price of this keyboard, which comes with a nice set of keycaps to begin with. I wish there were more options configuring this keyboard e.g.: different flavor MX switches when ordering. E.g. I would love to get it with some tactile but quiet switches instead of the cherry blues.
I ended up putting o-rings on the key stems. ( Double 0.2mm rated ones. 0.4mm singles also work). This made a huge difference in the overall key feel and sound. The keyboard is still clicky, but overall much quieter. I would say quiet enough for me.
But if If I did it over again, knowing what I learnt, I would rather get the Razer BlackWidow Lite TKL, as that comes with High Quality keycaps and their orange quiet tactile switches, plus the o-rings set included to boot.
Sadly it is poor in its implementation.
Typing on this keyboard is a dream with the Cherry MX Blue switches. Overall it's quite comfortable for quick typing.
The included instructions weren't very good, and it took a while to figure out how to get the software to work. I expected the ability to do per-key RGB customization without the need for software, but sadly that's not the case. Even with the software, it only appears to support a max of 4 profiles.
Using the software is not very intuitive, and is like pulling teeth. I'm very tech-savvy, having worked in IT for 20 years, and it was a pain for me, so I imagine it would be tricky for other people too.
The size is nice, however the build quality is cheap and plastic-y despite the heft the board has, and the magnetic wrist rest does not stay attached AT ALL, which leads to it constantly coming disconnected and sliding all over my desk, which ultimately ended up hurting my wrist despite the nice padding. The hard plastic rubberized wrist rest on the corsair k70 is far more comfortable despite having less padding. At least it stays put, I suppose.
If you can live with those issues, it IS a great keyboard, and it IS an absolute dream to type on, but definitely not to game on, sadly.
