Final Thoughts & Conclusion
In a market with what seems like nearly limitless key switch options, Cooler Master brought to market a keyboard targeting those users that are just looking for a good mechanical keyboard with RGB backlit keys. I think Cooler Master really hit the mark with this keyboard by creating a quality mechanical keyboard with the RGB configurability that people are looking for. The curved brushed aluminum top plate gives it a nice sleek look and the keys themselves feel great and illuminate extremely well. The included software was very easy to use and gave you a lot of configuration options. I personally could not find one flaw with this keyboard as it delivers exactly what it sets out to do. It’s a straightforward keyboard with great performance. So, if you are looking to find your first mechanical RGB keyboard or you don’t have a switch preference, you would be hard pressed to find a better keyboard in this price range than Cooler Master’s CK552.
