If the color scheme looks familiar then you must’ve read my article on the Pulse-R Headset that’s part of the Cooler Master’s Aluminum Gaming Series of gaming peripherals.
The keyboard comes with a distinct removable bezel, allowing you to customize it with whatever you feel great with but personally I like the silver finish as it is.
The Mech comes with a handle which I think is great when it comes to shifting your gaming gear around, like say LAN Party for example. Alternatively the keyboard could be used as a weapon too, or a shield for self-defense.
At the back of the keyboard are various ports which I believe are self-explanatory.
Besides the cable that powers the keyboard, the package also comes with a key remover tool and also a hex key to facilitate the removal of the bezel.
I quite like this keyboard, though I must say that the handles make it occupy quite a fair bit of table real estate.
Fortunately the non-conventional edges like the angles on the wrist-rest area doesn’t affect the experience.
Here’s a video of the keyboard in use, you’ll hear the sound of the Cherry MX Blue switches.
The keyboard is easy to install, and with a their software (User Manual Here) installed you may customize the keyboard further with your gaming profiles.
The board comes at a hefty price of RM 499 and it’s great to pair with headsets like the Pulse-R and their Reaper gaming mouse but bear in mind that this isn’t an RPG so a “full set” won’t be boosting any of your stats.
I like it that it’s simple, no clutter of unnecessary keys from corner to corner. On the down side, the keyboard occupies quite a huge area of which I think they could fare better if the handles and wrist-rest can be adjusted or removed should there be space constraints. In fact the keyboard does remind me of an electric guitar in some ways.
The Mech also comes with Cherry MX Brown and Red switch variants.
its too big. ill wait for CM Storm Rapid Si or Ni.
