Do you enjoy the tactile feel of mechanical switches but find the height of the keys too high? For some people, this extra height can be uncomfortable after a while and even cause wrist pain after a long gaming session. One solution would be to use a wrist rest but this isn’t always possible due to desk space or simply not being a fan of them. Well, thanks to Cooler Master’s new low-profile keyboard, the SK650, this can be a thing of the past. The SK650 has been designed with low-profile Cherry MX Red switches and coupled with extra slim keycaps which lowers the height of the keyboard and eliminates the need for a wrist rest. The SK650 also includes other notable features such as RGB backlit keys, on-the-fly controls, and a brush aluminum design. Coming in at an MSRP of $139.99, it stays competitive with other premium mechanical keyboards with the SK650 appealing to users looking for a keyboard with a lower-profile.
We would like to thank Cooler Master for sending us the SK650 to review.
About Cooler Master
Back in 1992, when the internet was in its early stages and CPU’s were measured in MHz rather than GHz, a company called ORYX was born. ORYX later became Cooler Master, which we know the company as today. Started by a rogue product manager who had no funding and no support except a single administrative secretary, he set out to create, innovate and improve products for the PC industry. Starting with its first product, a Socket 7 CPU heat sink in 1993, their product line has since grown to Cases, Peripherals, Fans, and much more. Over the past 25+ years they brought many advancements and firsts to the PC industry (such as the first all copper heat sink) and today, they continue to innovate by bringing new and exciting products to market.
