Cooler Master Masterkeys Lite L Review
Peter Donnell / 5 years ago
Competition in the gaming market is fierce, with seemingly every brand pushing their own gaming peripherals for every budget imaginable. Mechanical keyboards are now packing all kinds of crazy features, and with RGB being the main focus for 2016, the price of premium keyboards is pushing into the realms of crazy for many consumers, with prices often hitting around £150 for a gaming model. Cooler Master are fighting back against this with their latest premium gaming bundle, which still clocks in at around £120, but comes with a well equipped RGB keyboard, as well as a high-performance gaming mouse in one tidy package.
The Masterkeys Lite L uses mem-chanial switches, a hybrid of membrane and plunger switches to give you that slick mech feel, without costing the Earth, and with other benefits like long switch life, super quiet performance, MX compatible keycaps, and more.
