Introduction

Cooler Master MK850

Do you enjoy games that often have you reaching for your controller or joystick? Is your desk cluttered with peripherals needed for those racing and flight sims? This no longer needs to be the case thanks to Cooler Master’s new MK850 featuring Aimpad technology. The MK850 brings analog control to the keyboard with 8 pressure sensitive mechanical keys. This allows you precision control over your movements, acceleration, and braking which would normally have to be controlled by another piece of hardware. Some of the other notable features of the MK850 include dedicated media keys, on-the-fly controls, magnetic wrist rest and a brushed aluminum finish. With all these features packed into a single piece of hardware, it does come with a hefty MSRP of $199.99.

We would like to thank Cooler Master for sending us the MK850 for review.

About Cooler Master

Cooler Master Logo

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.
