Cooler Master’s slick gaming keyboard can pair up to 3 Bluetooth devices

PC accessories manufacturer Cooler Master recently released a new mechanical gaming keyboard, and it’s already receiving positive reviews.

According to The Inventory, Cooler Master’s SK621 mechanical gaming keyboard was launched on Wednesday, May 8.

The Inventory highlighted the following features of Cooler Master’s latest keyboard in his fairly glowing review: Exceptional battery life (with or without the use of the RGB LED backlighting), full-sized keys, and enough memory to pair up to three Bluetooth devices without having to re-pair them when switching devices. In fact, the reviewer was able to connect a phone, tablet, and laptop without having to re-pair. It’s also worth noting, that though it’s primarily touted as a wireless keyboard, the SK621 can also be used wired as well with a removable Type-C USB.

In addition to the features mentioned above, the Cooler Master SK621 keyboard also offers Cherry MX Low Profile switches, a streamlined 60% format, adjustable keyboard settings without having to install separate software (On-the-fly System), and a 32-bit ARM Cortex processor. But it’s worth mentioning that Cooler Master does offer a software option for this keyboard if those who prefer to use it. The software, while not necessary, does allow you to have “further customization of lighting modes” and the ability to tweak your macros.

The 60% format is indeed, as Cooler Master describes it, “bare-minimum,” as it eschews the inclusion of features such as number pads and separate rows of Function keys.

The SK621 also comes with a built-in rechargeable battery that is able to last for 14 to 15 hours while the RGB LED backlighting is in use and for about four to five months if you choose not to use the backlighting.

By design, this keyboard is intended to be ultra-portable, and in keeping with that, the SK621 is relatively light, weighing just under a pound (without its cable).

Cooler Master’s SK621 gaming keyboard is now available for purchase on Amazon. Though, fair warning, it is a bit pricey and costs $120. But so far, all indications are that this keyboard might be worth the price. Considering its features, it is at least worth a second look.

Cooler Master’s GamePod is a gaming chair ripped straight from a sci-fi movie
Cooler Masters GamePod-2

Calling the Orb X GamePod a gaming chair is a bit reductive. The egg-like design of this all-in-one PC battle station looks like it was ripped straight from a sci-fi flick.

Cooler Master unveiled the new Orb X gaming chair during its Cooler Master Summit, and its eye-catching design isn't its only stand-out feature. The chair is fitted with a recliner, mounts for up to three monitors, surround sound speakers, and enough RGB to make even the most seasoned PC gamers blush.

The Razer BlackWidow V3 Mini Hyperspeed standing on a table.

If you’re choosing a new keyboard as a gamer, it can be very tempting to go for the smallest keyboard out there. Perhaps something like Corsair’s K65 RGB Mini or Razer’s Huntsman Mini, both of which sport 60% layouts.

But today Razer is introducing the BlackWidow V3 Mini Hyperspeed, and having had just over a week with a sample, I can say with certainty that this might be my favorite small gaming keyboard to date.

Corsair K70 RGB TKL is an excellent gaming keyboard, if only it came out in 2016

Well, there we have it: After all these years, Corsair is finally coming out with a fully-featured TKL (tenkeyless) keyboard. This one is the K70 RGB TKL Champion Series, and at first sight, it looks like the full package. The K70 RGB TKL features Corsair’s long-running but still top design, Cherry MX switches, the full array of media keys, volume roller, and of course per-key addressable RGB lighting. Indeed, if you’re looking for a keyboard that does everything in the TKL format, this might be one to keep an eye on. Or maybe not.

Compared to the K65 RGB TKL, in its various versions, the K70 TKL adds the full array of dedicated media keys, a volume wheel, lock/unlock buttons, a shimmy more RGB with a pretty, illuminated Corsair logo, a removable USB Type-C cable, a ‘Tournament Mode’ switch, 8000-Hz Hyper-polling, and PBT keycaps from the factory.
