Genuine Cherry MX Keyswitches
Cherry MX keyswitches are known for their superior design and construction. Their patented Gold Crosspoint contact technology ensures precise accuracy and long-term durability for more than 50 million keypresses, with a superior feel that allows for more accurate and quicker typing.
RGB LED Backlighting
Each keyswitch is individually lit by an RGB LED. This allows you to choose any individual color you fancy or to choose a multicolor or color cycling pattern. You can choose one of the built-in LED color modes or create your own custom mode using the included software application.
64-key USB Rollover
Most USB keyboards are limited to the standard USB six-key rollover, but this keyboard features a 64-key rollover option, ensuring that every key you press is registered by your game or application.
Ordinary membrane keyboards are susceptible to "ghosting" where the keyboard cannot distinguish between certain simultaneous keypress combinations and therefore produces no keypress at all. You may not notice it as a problem with the hardware design and simply write it off a failure on your part to press the keys in time. Mechanical keyboards, on the other hand, use individual switches for each key, allowing the keyboard to recognize any combination and simultaneous keypresses, up to the maximum 64-key rollover limit, regardless of which keys are presses.
USB and Multimedia Hub
The keyboard features a 2-port pass-through USB hub, making it easy to connect a mouse, flash drive, or charge your phone. Additionally, it has 3.5mm microphone and speaker/headphone jacks, allowing for easy connections of traditional headsets or speakers.
Double Injected Key Caps
Many keyboard manufacturers reduce cost by using a white plastic keycap with black paint to form the letters and numbers. These look great for a while, but the paint will wear off with use, obliterating the letter. Rather than cut corners, we use double-injected keycaps made with white plastic for the numbers and black plastic for the surround keycap, ensuring that the letters will never fade with use and will look like new for years.
Use the included software application to create and manage custom macros to allow for multiple actions with the press of a single key. You can create macros by recording your keystrokes or through direct programming using the simple application interface.
Multiple Profiles and On-Board Memory
You can save your custom macros and lighting options to one of the five profiles, allowing you to create custom setups for different games, for office use, or for use by multiple users. Additionally, the keyboard features on-board memory to save your settings locally, rather than on your computer, allowing you to move the keyboard from computer to computer without the need to reconfigure it or even to install the included customization software.
Easily control the volume and playback of your music and videos with the multimedia keys.
Heavy-Duty Wrist Rest
The removable wrist rest ensures that you can type and play in comfort for hours on end. The wrist rest attaches to the keyboard with an unbreakable, heavy-duty connection point.

Questions and Answers
Unfortunately we would not have the included software available for download via the website. Should you purchase the keyboard and wish to try it out, you are welcome to. We do offer a 30 day return policy should it not work out for you then you can return it. I hope this helps.
I like the white back light. But it turns on the Gmode. So after I switch to white back light, I use Fn + Windows to toggle it on/off.
I know the G indicator is for gaming mode but what about the other two?
does anyone know where the configuration is stored? i couldn't figure it out in the registry and i checked appdata to no avail.
The status lights (Num lock, Scroll lock abd the "G" light are bright bright white and do not dim or change color. I have had to stick 10 layers of frosted Stoch tape to dim them enough to not blind me while working.
Support said there was not adjustment.
To have to do this on a $114.00 keyboard is a shame.
PROS: So far seems to work great
CONS: Status lights are horrible
The MP D20 is definitely noisier than the old, but I'm happy to move up to a keyboard with Cherry MX Brown switches. It's solid feeling (though plastic - it's a hefty plastic and the keyboard weighs a lot more than I expected; it doesn't move easily) and feels good for typing and gaming.
I haven't loaded the drivers. What I want the keyboard to do (so far) is all selectable from the keyboard via Fn keys. I like the USB ports on-board - it keeps me from having the mouse cord run all the way back to the computer. I've tried the wrist rest a couple of times but keep removing it, as it doesn't seem to do much for me except take space. It's easily removed.
I keep it on a low white light for the keyboard. The status lights don't dim, though - which is the major annoyance to this board in my opinion. One last thing on lighting: there are two lighted panels on the vertical front edge (below the space bar) that make decent night lights. If you have this in a bedroom, you might need to shut the lights off for sleep.
The other annoyance to me is the font for the keys - it definitely doesn't match what is shown in the pictures, and it's kind of odd. E.g., 6 and G look very alike, 9 is an upside down G, and A is a Greek Delta with an open spot on the bottom. Basically, there are no closed characters, like 8 is open top and bottom to look like two broken chain links hooked together. I'm supposing this is due to how the keys are made, and closed sections would mean no support for (what Monoprice says is a double injected white/black key set) the black part of the key. You can see some of the true font used in the circular picture next to where it says "RGB LED Backlighting." I have a better picture if I can figure a way to show it here.
I haven't found an LED lighted Cherry MX Brown switch keyboard for any less money than this one (and most without lights are the same or more than this with lights). I like mine (enough to be tempted to buy another on this current sale).
I would give 5 stars for a more legible font on the keys and a replaceable cable (though the included cable is *nice* - fabric wrapped).

As far as the RGB goes, it's great that I can program every key (and all keys) from the software to whatever color/effect I want, my last one made me use the keyboard alone to program the colors which was tedious at best and left the "program" button un-programmable.
I don't know that the wrist rest makes or breaks the rating, but I do find myself using it all the time, so it's a nice little bonus, and it does look a little weird if you take it off.
