Cooler Master is targeting the entry-level mechanical keyboard market with the CK550. Currently flooded with rebranded or low-quality products, bigger brands haven’t really touched this segment. The CK550 is still priced slightly higher than the budget mechanical keyboards but it delivers build quality and the basic features you would expect on a mechanical keyboard. And the most important, it has two years of warranty. By using Gateron mechanical switches instead of Cherry MX, they have been able to keep the prices down. The keyboard is available in three switch variants including Red, Brown and Blue, similar to what Cherry offers. There are tiny nuances between them which will go unnoticed to the regular user. For now, the reputation of Gaterons has been quite reliable in the mechanical keyboard enthusiast community.
Apart from packing an impressive build quality at this price, Cooler Master is also offering hardware-based macro recording and lighting control. On top of that, you also get complete software support for the same functions through the Cooler Master Portal. At this price, the CK550 is a great choice for users who wish to buy a mechanical keyboard with a limited budget. It’s also an affordable option for local mechanical keyboard enthusiasts as a secondary keyboard who want to experience Gateron switches. The CK550 isn't the only keyboard in the CK series. At Computex 2018, we had also seen the CK530 which was the tenkeyless (TKL) version of the CK550. The CK530 is going to arrive soon in the local market.
