The MasterKeys MK750 is a mechanical gaming keyboard that comes with the obligatory RGB lighting, and the well-known Cherry MX Blue keys for a tactile typing experience. With an estimated 50 million keystrokes lifespan for its switches, and a Hybrid key rollover that combines N-key and 6-key rollover, the MK750 has the top-of-the-line specs on paper. With the specs promising so much to buyers, we’ll find out if the MK750 is worth its weight in gold.
The entirety of the MK750 is plated with an anodized cobalt-aluminum material. As a result, there is a certain heft to it, making it feel and look premium.
The MK750’s switches also features a Floating Switch design, making its RGB goodies easily viewable. Additionally, dust and gunk would also not easily get stuck, unlike other typical keyboards with switches that are sunk into the body. This results in a low-maintenance keyboard, with the right tools.
The only design flaw with the wrist rest is the blocking of the sexy RGB Lightbar which accents the bottom of the keyboard.
To keep the price of the keyboard low, while wanting to keep the superior quality of PBT keys, 9 PBT keys were included in the package. These keys include WASD, ESC and arrow, where most of which are the keys that normally develop the “shine” or have their symbols faded out. All of which are also double-shot to improve durability.
Following the trend of Type-C cables for everything, the MK750 is powered by a USB to Type-C cable. It is theoretically possible to use any USB to Type-C cable to power the keyboard, in possible future cases where the included wire got damaged. As compared to other keyboards that do not feature any detachable cable, or those that uses proprietary ports, the lifespan of the MK750 is definitely longer in respect to the cable.
Have a RGB setting that is too flashy for the night? Simply switch to your “night” profile with “FN + 1/2/3/4” and you are ready to go. There is no need to open up any program just to perform this meager action. Everything can be done with the On-the-Fly shortcuts.
With the various modes available for users to preview and play around with, and control over the RGB color, the software is the superior option. It even features the creation of macros, and even remapping of any key on the keyboard.
Ever wanted to remap that useless right Windows button that have been forgotten? Now you can replace it with a handier key, and give some love to that sad and unloved button.
It does however, lack a full set of PBT keys and wireless functionality that some might find a deal-breaker. This was probably done to keep the price sub $200, while wireless connectivity can cause some complications with gaming where latency and speed is of high importance.
