Cooler Master has had some really solid keyboard over the past few years. Today we are going to be checking out their new MK730, which is basically a tenkeyless version of the MK750, which we took a look at back in 2017. I’ve said this many times before, but I am a huge fan of tenkeyless keyboards. They are the perfect size as they don’t take up a lot of space on your desk and are small enough to easily take with you to the office or LAN party. And for me they offer all of the keys I need, I rarely use a number pad even if the keyboard I’m using has one. The MK730 offers Cherry MX mechanical key switches, a brushed aluminum chassis, full RGB lighting, and a nice PU wrist rest. You’ll get all of this for only $119.99, is it worth it?

The MK730 comes in a nice retail box, on the front it shows a photo of the keyboard and lets us know we have the version with Cherry MX Red key switches (MK-730-GKCR1-US). Cooler Master does offer this keyboard in Cherry MX Blue and Cherry MX Brown as well.
Flipping over to the back there is an overview of the keyboard where many of the features are detailed.
