Cooler Master SGK-4040-GKCM1-US

 

Love my cherry browns, but after six months, I have 3 LED's burnt out. I can't wait to hear how much it'll cost me in shipping to fix CM's horrible LED selection. The micro usb connector is starting to wobble too, but that's just because I have to...

Bad LED lifespan ; Cheap micro USB connector

Bad software, Bad hardware, Bad support

 

Many other options out there that have better lighting, better compatibility, better customer service, the same Cherry switches, and in the same price range.

Cherry switches are consistently what they are

Why Mac users should not buy this keyboard ; The software to fix bugs (like the keyboard not being recognized at start up) only works from a Windows machine. The keyboard will work on a mac until it doesn't and then you need Windows to fix it ; Why no...

Works like a mechanical keyboard should. Responsive, nice tactile sensation, etc

Purchased on 4/25/15 and as of 5/12/15 10 different LEDs have gone out. It's not a huge problem but it's annoying. I should have expected as much from the reviews but I figured I'd take a chance

Works like a champ

 

It's feels solid, the keycaps are nice and the back lighting has different brightness's and modes

The back lighting on the "J" key seems to have dimmed to the point where I can't tell if it's on or off even with the brightness maxed. I've only had this keyboard for over a month now so I'm worried the other keys will start to have issues

Great Keyboard, One Issue

 

Very Solid Feel ; Typing is very accurate ; Back lights have customized settings ; Braided cable ; Sleek

The only bad thing I can say about this keyboard is that it won't always turn on when the computer is booted, causing you to have to unplug it and then plug it back in to make it power on. It happens intermittently however this was a gift for someone...
