The MK750 is Cooler Mas­ter’s lat­est me­chan­i­cal key­board, and ar­guably its most ac­com­plished. It only re­quires one USB con­nec­tion to power it, with added

ex­i­bil­ity thanks to its USB-C port and de­tach­able ca­ble. You don’t even need to preload your com­puter with the soft­ware: a 32-bit ARM Cor­tex M3 pro­ces­sor and 512KB of RAM mean it’s in­tel­li­gent enough to pick from prede ned colour set­tings at the press of a but­ton.

This doesn’t mean Cooler Mas­ter skimps on ef­fects: an un­der­stated colour bar sits on the base to com­ple­ment the in­di­vid­u­ally back­lit keys, and you can cus­tomise any num­ber of ef­fects us­ing the soft­ware.

Cooler Mas­ter also pro­vides a wrist rest, which mag­net­i­cally at­taches to the front of the key­board when you need it. Al­though “at­taches” may be too strong a word, be­cause it’s a de­lib­er­ately weak con­nec­tion – if you drag the key­board along, the strip will dis­con­nect.

You can pick from three Cherry MX switch types. Cooler Mas­ter sent us the Brown ver­sion), but you may pre­fer Red for faster gam­ing re­sponse times, or Blue for louder clicks.

While it isn’t cheap that in­cludes a twoyear war­ranty and the knowl­edge that it uses Cherry’s hard­ened tech­nol­ogy. This is a key­board that should last for so long that even USB-C will be old-fash­ioned, mak­ing it our pick of an ex­cel­lent bunch.
