  • Aimpad analog tech mimics a controller's analog joystick, Dedicated media controls, macros, and USB passthrough, Cherry MX switches

  • The MK850 is a great board that's packed with features and that makes the idea of eliminating the gamepad from your PC setup a genuinely feasible prospect...

  • The MK850 from Cooler Master is a well built, attractive keyboard that ticks plenty of boxes. The Aimpad technology is really quite exciting and is, in my opinion, more smooth and consistent than what's already on the market. It certainly takes some getti...

  • Expensive, Cherry Red switches aren't for everyone, Tight layout, Awkward M-key placement
  • Cooler Master has produced the current pinnacle of what an analog keyboard should be. Although the price may be extreme, the complement of features is spectacular...

  • I've been looking for some simple words to describe the Aimpad functionality and it ends being a little unpolished yet innovative. Adding analog controller like functionality to the keyboard I do like. It potentially helps me game better and more precisel...

  • Abstract:  Forget, for a moment, what the Cooler Master MK850 looks like. Forget about its RGB lighting, its brushed metal top, its many keys and buttons, and the software that comes with it, because none of those things make it a keyboard of consequence. The only t...
