    Are the switches Cherry MX switches? If not, what kind are they?
    Wilbur Y on Feb 15, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I have popped off some keycaps and confirmed that the switches are, indeed, Kailh switches.
    Can we change the brightness of the color. Low , Medium and High. ?
    A shopper on Nov 28, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: yes you can. Its combo of FN key plus up or down arrow keys, which does it.
    Is this model available with a single color backlight?
    A shopper on Apr 3, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. Correct, the colors of the LED's would be locked on this keyboard and would not be adjustable.
    Is it possible to turn off all backlight?
    Samuel L on Mar 30, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Hold down the Fn button (bottom row) and press the down arrow button (a little to its right) several times. Or you can press the right arrow button several times and light up select key sets (for playing games).
    Will this work on a
    2008 Mac Pro?
    Peter D on Nov 30, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: I'm using it on a 2009 iMac and it seems to work well. I would have like to have had the option to change the windows keys out with mac keys but it doesn't make that much difference. Lighting affects are also nice.
    Will this work with a KVM switch (that uses scroll lock as the controlling key?)
    Lee T on Mar 2, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I use mine with a KVM switch, but I don't have the scroll lock hot key. It's a standard USB keyboard, so it will be just fine with any KVM.

    Not actually RGB LEDs
    The item isn't labeled accurately. While the keyboard has LEDs, the LEDs are fixed colors and not LEDS capable of multiple colors. This wasn't what I expected.

    PROS: It's a keyboard.

    CONS: LED back lighting is not as advertised at the point of purchase.

    Great Mechanical Keyboard. Shouldn't be labeled as RGB lighting!
    I just received this as a gift for Christmas. The keyboard has proper Blue switch feedback and responsiveness. You can choose patterns for the lights to flash and which keys light up. Unfortunately, the product description should be updated. While there are RGB lights behind each key, the color of each key CANNOT be changed. RGB can produce over 16.8 million color combinations yet Monoprices chooses to permanently lock the colors to 6 (red, green, yellow, blue, purple, and pink.) Monoprice should have used white LEDs with colored covers to save money. So if you don't like the color layout in the picture, do not get this keyboard.



    PROS: Proper blue switch feedback.
    Sleeved cable
    Multiple lighting pattern options. (brightness, custom on/off lighting)
    Heavy, durable feel

    CONS: RGB light colors are permanent.
    Doesn't take advantage of 16.8 million color options for RGB
    No software for keyboard

    Great for the price!
    So far I'm enjoying the feel of the keys and I didnt realize how much I missed using an mechanical keyboard.
    For the price you can't get better, it feels sturdy, works well and they thought of everything for this price base.
    My only complaints, is sure it RGB, but each row of keys appears to be stuck at one colour. Would of been nice if I had the option to make the keys either solid green/blue/red/orange instead of the rainbow pattern they had.
    Also wouldn't hurt to get some software for this as using the FN key to change the pattern/lights is a bit annoying and would definitely bring this keyboard up to it competitors if it had a software suite to customize on the fly.

    PROS: Great price
    Great Build
    Does not feel like cheap plastic
    Keys respond quite well


    CONS: Having to use FN to change colour brightness and patterns
    No ability to have a solid green keyboard or the ilk
    Lacking software to customize/control directly from the desktop as using FN is rather annoying.

    Colors are fixed not like other keyboards with adjustable leds
    I thought this keyboard would allow me to adjust the color to any of the colors shown in the photo, in fact they are fixed so the letter Y is always blue and the letter n is always purple. Otherwise the keyboard seems pretty good so far. Disappointing but I don't think I will return it, they should be more clear in the description though.

    PROS: mechanical switched at a reasonable price, hopefully it holds up over time.

    CONS: Colors of individual keys are fixed, you can not adjust the colors at all.

    Great mechanical keyboard
    Great keyboard for fast typists and gamers with cool visual backlight effects. The ability to reassign colors would make it even more awesome.

    PROS: Feels solid and looks nice.
    All keys are in the right place and have the right size.
    Good tactile feedback.
    Does not need any additional software installed.
    A number of predefined backlight patterns with ability to define up to 3 custom.

    CONS: The feedback is inconsistent across keys - some are more 'clicky' then the others.
    The colors are fixed - having RGB in the description might be misleading.

    Great keyboard with limited lighting options
    Great for typing and gaming. Harder to spam keys than red switch, but I play FPS games so makes no difference to me really. I really like the clicky responsiveness whether I'm typing an essay or playing Counterstrike. Colors are not interchangeable from key to key, so if you don't like the way the picture looks do not buy. The build quality and price easily deserves five stars in my opinion as I didn't buy this product for the lighting options.

    PROS: -Sturdy as hell
    -Clicky feedback great for typing and gaming unless you need to spam keys
    -Cool preset lighting patterns to choose from
    -Can change brightness of keys and program your own patterns
    -Unbeatable value for the money

    CONS: -Can't change colors of individual keys
    -The clicky response is kind of loud though not as loud as I expected from reading about blues. Makes typing very efficient but could piss off a finicky room mate that doesn't own a set of earbuds!

    Best Keyboard I Have Ever Used!!
    I bought this keyboard to pair with a new Dell 8900 computer. I never used a mechanical keyboard before, but decided to get it and hope for the best. A nice email coupon lowered the price so the deal was irresistible. Well, all I can say is that this keyboard is absolutely fantastic. I really like the way the keys lights up - it far exceeded my expectations. Now for the important part - the typing. This is a dream to type on. The blue switch type is much easier to type on than a membrane keyboard. It's just made for your fingers to work on. I think the click sound is also great - it's not as loud I thought it would be (from what I've read about blue switches), and it is a symphony of clicking while typing. It's actually quite enjoyable to listen to.
    This keyboard appears to be made very well - it's heavy, so it doesn't slide around on your desk. And I like how it sits higher than the average run-of-the-mill keyboard.
    All around, it's a great product and even without the coupon I used, it would definitely be worth it.


    PROS: *Great backlight
    *Great feeling when typing
    *Great clicking sound
    *Appears to be very well fabricated

    CONS: Not able to change colors of keys as others have mentioned, but I can live with it.

    great value
    been looking for a mechanical keyboard for a while but they're too pricey. not a gamer so didn't need it for that, just wanted a positive, responsive keyboard for typing. this keyboard went on sale and is one with an ENTER key that I'm used to so bought it. needed a backlit keyboard but wasn't too keen about the multicolors described however once I got it I must say I like the colors, it's festive and fun looking. was concerned about the loudness of the blue key clicks but it's not bad at all, especially since no one is around me in my home office. it reminds me of my original IBM PC keyboard from the 80's. overall I highly recommend this keyboard if looking for a solid, mechanical keyboard that is a great value

    PROS: festive multicolor backlighting
    fun special light effects
    solid feel to blue keys with not too loud click
    awesome value
    normal sized ENTER key

    CONS: no option for single color backlighting

    PROS: sturdy
    nice size
    easy to program

    CONS: can't change color of keys
    limited programming

    Great Keyboard
    I know this keyboard is for gaming, but I purchased it because I work from home and need a keyboard that I can really type fast on. This one does the job very well, due to the positive keystroke feel. I prefer keyboards that have "switched" keys, rather than the membrane kind. Also, I live with a few gamers and they like it very much as well. The lit keys are important for working or gaming in low light, and the light patterns are fun.

    PROS: fast, responsive keys, fun light patterns

    CONS: None
