MONTECH is proud to unveil its latest offering—the MKey mechanical keyboard collection. This collection, available in two captivating colors—Freedom and Darkness, encompasses both full-size and TKL keyboard options.
Drawing inspiration from the iconic Osaka Castle in Japan, MONTECH has beautifully captured its grandeur in the MKey's design, incorporating the castle's color accents and ensuring a stable infrastructure. To enhance the keyboard's aesthetic appeal, each MKey Freedom and MKey Darkness includes two sets of custom keycaps inspired by the Osaka Castle.
Equipped with pre-lubed Gateron G Pro 2.0 switches, the MKey collection guarantees smooth and precise key actuation. Users can choose from three switch options—Red, Yellow, and Brown—to achieve their preferred typing sound and feel. The MKey supports both 3-pin and 5-pin switches, allowing for further customization and flexibility.
Unlike ordinary sound-dampening foam, the MKey features specially designed silicone acoustic absorb pads that expertly envelop the PCB and keyboard bottom. These pads effectively absorb unwanted acoustic vibrations, ensuring an optimal keystroke acoustics experience. The MKey series incorporates a gasket structure along with two custom-made silicone pads, strategically placed on the PCB circuit board and the bottom of the keyboard. By effectively dampening vibrations and eliminating atypical sounds, the MKey delivers a flawless auditory experience.
The MKey boasts south-facing LEDs beneath each key, providing enhanced under-glow illumination without any ghosting or interference issues. Additionally, the keyboard offers a wide range of lighting customization with 18 built-in RGB lighting modes, all effortlessly controlled through the multi-functional rotary knob.
Multi-functional Rotary Knob
The MKey's Rotary Knob has three main modes: zoom in and out, volume adjustment, and RGB mode switching. Users can easily cycle through these modes by simply pressing down on the knob, featuring a Patent Pending underglow ring displaying the current mode. The Rotary Knob provides users with quick access to essential functions without the need for additional software or keystrokes.
5 Sided Dye-Sublimated Keycap Legends
To create the most visually appealing keycap legends, the MKey features a dye-sublimation printing process on all five sides of the keycap. With this printing process, the MKey offers users with aesthetically pleasing keycaps that are durable through wear and tear. In addition, the MKey features MDA profile key-caps made with PBT for ultimate comfort and ease on the fingertips.
This collection has full F1 to F12 keys, Windows Key Lock function, N-key rollover, and also macro recording function. All these features are accessible directly through the keyboard or through Montech's MKey software. The F12 key also has an alternate "Boss Key!" function, a direct shortcut back to the desktop!
Some other notable extra features include: adjustable 3-level incline angles for maximum comfort along with a braided Type-C cable.
Available starting May 17th, 2023 on Amazon and Newegg MSRP for the TKL size is $89 USD with the full size keyboard priced at $99 USD.
