Topic: Cooler Master MS-121 Keyboard Review - A Mem-chanical Miss

Mem-chanical? Yeah, that's in reference to this being a membrane keyboard from Cooler Master, but with keys designed to operate along the same lines as a mechanical keyboard. A hybrid if you will. Hence the fancy descriptor. Today's hardware review comes from our very-own Hogfather.

Turns out it's a bit of a misfire from the usually solid hardware maker. A shame because Cooler Master's full mechanical offering is an exceptional keyboard.

Unfortunately, the vaunted Mem-chanical switching was plagued with issues, at least with our review board. Some keys, notably the main Enter key and the DEL key, the click fail rate was bad enough that I had to retrain myself to primarily use the number pad enter key instead. While the clicking mechanism itself felt great, the result was that the imprecise underlying mushiness of the membrane was actually amplified. This would often lead me astray as to whether a keystroke had been registered, making effective use difficult and at times frustrating.
