Cooler Master’s MasterKeys S Keyboard Has Cherry MX Speed Switches

Posted by at 12:09 pm on January 16, 2017

Cooler Master’s MasterKeys S keyboard joins the field of mechanical keyboards packing Cherry’s MX Speed (Silver) switches.

The MasterKeys S has a compact, tenkeyless design, and it has some higher-end features. For example, instead of ABS key caps, it has superior PBT caps (with a UV top coat), and you can switch between Windows, Mac, and Linux layouts, as well as between QWERTY, DVORAK, and Workman layouts. It does not appear to have backlighting.

This keyboard is, you might say, a minimalist gamer’s dream. Other than the fact that it has the Cherry Speed switches on board, which are really designed for rapid-clicking gamers, the MasterKeys S seems more like a typist’s keyboard.

Other features include on-the-fly macro recording and NKRO/6KRO toggle, but there’s apparently no software support (which is not necessarily a bad thing). There’s no price information available at this time.

Cherry MX Silver (Speed) switches are linear, like Reds, and they require the same light 45g of force, but the former has shallower overall travel (3.4mm versus 4mm) and actuation point (1.2mm versus 2mm).
