Very Nice Keyboard 12/25/2019 9:57:45 PM

Pros: I like the way that the keys click every time I press down on it. The RGB that comes and gives the keyboard a smoothing atmosphere. The dark colors that it emits

Cons: Would Be better if it was wireless and had a slower rgb cycle mode

Overall Review: This is very great and all, but I don't know. I just don't enjoy it all the way.

Pretty Good Keyboard 10/3/2018 4:16:08 PM

Pros: Bright per key RGB LEDs
Secondary Functions Labeled On Key
On-the-Fly Controls (On Keyboard) RGB Controls
Software RGB and Macro Management Available
Sturdy Aluminum Construction
CAPS, Num, Scroll lock LEDS are RGB
SDK Available from CoolerMaster

Cons: No USB passthrough
No Audio passthrough
No wrist rest
No RGB Sync with Cooler Master Fans

Overall Review: The Cooler Master CK550 Gaming Mechanical Keyboard has a brushed aluminum finish and with bright RGB LEDs. The keys have blue switches with a single RGB LED above each blue switch. The keys are loud, which is noticeable to others when on phone calls or during gaming online. Each key cap with an assigned secondary function is clearly labeled which includes Multimedia and RGB Control functions. While this keyboard does offer software controls, the keys offer a multitude of RGB controls without the need of software.

The Cooler Master software for this keyboard allow management of the RGB LEDs per key, Macros, Key Map Reassignment and Profiles. I found the software easy to use when programming the LEDs and Key Reassignment, but I have used better implementations of Macro creation. Additionally, the software does not allow the keyboard LEDs to sync up with the Cooler Master MasterFan Pros or Cooler Master CPU Cooler I have installed in my computer.

The keyboard feels extremely nice to type, but due to the loud blue switch it would be difficult to use in an office setting without annoying others near the keyboard or over the phone. If you work from home or do not play online games, this keyboard is a great option. However, if you work in an office environment or plan to use the keyboard for online gaming, the Brown or Red switch versions of this keyboard would probably be a better choice.

Mushy Keys 9/5/2018 7:55:26 AM

Pros: The software to control the RGB is top-notch. The look of the keyboard is very stylish and I love the floating keycaps.

Cons: I've owned other CoolerMaster keyboards (both blue and brown) as well as some from Razer, Ducky and Corsair. This keyboard feels very mushy when compared to the Ducky and my previous CoolerMaster. I understand that these are no longer Cherry switches, and apparently this makes a significant difference to me. It's not BAD by any means, but it really feels like I should have paid $50 for this instead of $100. My Ducky is by far the superior keyboard. If you have the means, find one of those.
