Cooler Master MasterKeys MK750 Review
Cooler Master MasterKeys MK750
Just your type
Gamers and business users aren’t always looking for the same things from their PCs, but they tend to agree on keyboards, turning up their noses at today’s flat, flimsy affairs in favour of traditional keys with mechanical switches that will survive years of hammering. This model from Cooler Master is made with classic Cherry switches, which are colour-coded for their feel. We tested a ‘Brown’ model, which offers a distinct tactile click without being too noisy or clunky.
It’s a good option if you haven’t bought a mechanical keyboard before, but you should ideally try different types before

you buy. If you can’t find a local computer dealer where you can do that, you could take advantage of your statutory right to return goods bought online within 14 days for a refund without giving a reason (some outlets, such as Amazon, extend this to 30 days), but remember the retailer can charge you for return postage.
The MK750 comes with a comfy fake-leather wrist rest that attaches to the front with fairly weak magnets. It also has multi coloured LED backlighting. The ability to set the colour of each key is brilliant for remembering shortcuts, and you can set up macros to generate several keypresses from one key. There’s no wireless option, but the long braided cable plugs into a USB Type C port, so if necessary you can replace it with a standard Type A plug on the PC end.
This substantial mechanical keyboard suits a range of uses and should last a long time, making it a wise investment

With the same switches, this has no lights and uses awkward software for macros, but is good value
