The perfect TKL. Everything you could want. Genuine MX Browns, RGB lighting and a clean design. Would recommend to anyone, even non-gamers

My only other experiences with mechanical keyboards have been with a Corsair Strafe RGB and a Razer Blackwidow X TE. The switches in the Strafe weren’t to my liking (despite being made as ‘silenced’ switches, they felt really unresponsive), whereas the Blackwidow was okay but sadly had to be returned as half of the board stopped working. I took the chance to try something else. The folks over at /r/mechanicalkeyboards, whilst being hardcore DIY enthusiasts, maintain that the Masterkeys series are worthwhile. I can now fully back them on that. Going from the custom switches of the Strafe and Blackwide (Razer’s trademark ‘green’ switches, which are similar in nature to blue switches) to standard MX brown’s is unreal. The keys have. A great tactile feel, and the finish is a nice brushed plastic which gives off a rubbery-feel

To say I love this keyboard is an understatement. I chose the model with brown switches and after going through several different keyboards (Deathstalker, Logitech G910, Corsair Rapidfire) I can comfortably say this is the best keyboard I've ever used. I opted for the ten keyless to save desk space for when I get a smaller desk.
I love the satisfying sound of the keystrokes and the fact that it takes just a bit more pressure to get a full keystroke, as opposed to the rapidfire and G910 that felt too squishy to me and made my hands tired. I think I naturally apply more pressure when I'm concentrating, so I need more resistance to prevent fatigue. There were also times my finger would twitch and hit a key unintentionally and in a competitive game that's the difference between having your ult and using your ult.
10/10 would recommend

Excellent feel and the software works much easier than my Corsair K70. Compact and sturdy build, with a removable cable.

Great minimal-looking keyboard. RGB is a plus.

Minimalistic TKL keyboard with a detachable micro usb, fairly bright lights on each keys, and mechanical for a reasonable price.
The only cons I have with this was, to control the LEDs without the software. It took a little to understand how to use it.

Love this keyboard, some of the keycaps look a bit rough a the very bottom which isn't much of an issue, one of my keycaps came a tiny bit scratched, and I wish for the keys with stuff at the bottom (like the numbers) were a little more evenly illuminated, but these are super nit picky issues. Typing is super nice and I love the size.

I have tried Cherry MX Reds in the past and I like those but I must say, browns are by far my favorite. Add in a bit of rgb and a nice, clean black finish and you've got the perfect keyboard (I went for the ten-keyless because I have no use for a number pad and unfortunately my desk is kind of small).

I opted for Cherry MX Browns. Happy I didn't go with a full-sized keyboard. This is my first mechanical keyboard, and I'm still getting used to the sensitivity of the keys. I really have to try to barely press the key to only actuate it once. Otherwise, if I type as I usually would on a non-mechanical keyboard, I end up ttttttyyyyyyyyyyppppiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnngggggg llllliiiiiiiiiikkkkkkkkeeeeee ttttthhhhhhiiiiiiiissssss, with a ton of actuations per a press that I'm used to being a single keystroke. Hopefully this will decrease as time goes on and I get used to using a mechanical keyboard. The keyboard itself is nice. Build quality feels sturdy. Wish it had a USB passthrough and/or dedicated media keys, but for this price, I'll take what I can get.
Edit: Have since gotten used to the mechanical switches. Quite happy with this keyboard so far.

I love this keyboard! Its one of the cheaper TKL boards I've been able to find, and I feel like its one of the better ones as well. I got it with Cherry MX Brown switches which feel great for both typing and gaming. The software is super easy to use, and there are plenty of options for customisation. The only downside really is that there's no included wrist rest, and the one you can buy for it doesn't actually attach in anyway so it can easily slip away.
