Pros: I wanted to follow up here, but I feel as though I am short on pros for this keyboard.
The keyboard itself is wonderful... when it works...
Cons: I don't intend to blast cooler master here but this was ridiculous.
Here I am finally, with a new replacement. I started this process on 8/8 and received the replacement today on 9/11.
There was a long back and forth email chain with CM on this, and when they finally deemed me eligible for a replacement they were out of stock on the stealth keyboards. They then attempted to give me a quickfire rapid (a keyboard that retails for $20-$40 less than this one) as a replacement. I asked what they intended to do to cover the cost gap (Mind you I have paid shipping now as well... looking at $120+ invested in this thing already as when I bought it my total was $110 and change) they blatantly disregarded that portion of my email and moved on.
I'm concerned. The first one didn't last very long and now with a replacement, I feel as though I've been given a band aid until they can wipe their hands and walk once my warranty expires.
Be wary. They don't seem to have your best interests in mind when it comes to you as a consumer. I would recommend going with another manufacturer and swapping the keycaps with stealthy black ones.
I am very disappointed with cooler master on this one.
Other Thoughts: switch failure rate seems to be high and a serious problem and they are only passing out replacements, presumably with the same bad switches they shipped with in the first place...READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Mechanical, sleek.
Cons: The O key on this keyboard stopped working after 1 month of daily usage.
I work IT and am on the keyboard for long periods throughout the day. Today, after working with another system for about 2 hours I came back to my desk to find my O key completely unresponsive.
Rebooted, switched ports, etc. etc. Still nothing. This is infuriating as I paid $120 for this thing and haven't even owned it for a month.
