    CoolerMaster was on our rounds of the CES convention today, showcasing many a new keyboard and some news!

    They now have an in-house PSU development team. They want to be able to compete with EVGA and Corsair in PSU sales.

    Any info on the battery life of those slim 60% keyboards?
    Also, any word on whether they only plan for versions with rechargeable batteries (no options with AA or AAA batteries)?

    What kind of switches do those use? Didn't look like cherry or mechanical to me.

    Ah. That 60% layout looks similar with GK64 or iGK64. Are they programmable?

    Also really hope they have a blue switch variant then...

    This keyboard would have so much potential if it wasn't reliant on a BT connection :(

    I loved this!
    the 60% keyboard would be a welcoming addition to my setup for sure

    Don't know if anyone noticed, but the title photo shows a Space Gray colored keyboard with Apple layout. Is there any additional information about it?

    These keyboards are wired/wireless. The cable is usb-c as well.


    Dunno about the apple layout, but the number pad looks like a nice add-on. I wonder if there is any info floating around about that...

    I know they are wired or wireless, but the whole point of them is to be wireless and Bluetooth just has too many issues for me to get a keyboard that uses it. I'd rather wait for Corsair or Logitech to put out a wireless one that uses a dongle like most mice do.

    Ahhh gotcha. What bluetooth issues do you usually have? Reception from a distance?
