Cooler Master Introduces Low Profile Keyboard Series

[Editor's note: Our own review of the Cooler Master SK630 is published here for those interested.]

Cooler Master, a global leader in designing and manufacturing innovative gaming peripherals and computer components, today launched two low profile mechanical keyboards from its new SK series, the SK650 and SK630. "We created the SK series with design and functionality in mind. Especially for those who are workers by day and gamers at night." says Bryant Nguyen, Peripheral General Manager.

The SK650 and SK630 are slim profile mechanical keyboards with the perfect balance of "work and play." The SK series features Cherry MX low profile switches that provide a reduced travel distance and actuation point with the same signature durability and precision as a standard red switch. The boards are equipped with Type-C USB for convenience. Per-key backlighting, surrounding light bars, and macros can be fully customized through Cooler Masters easy to use Portal Software Application. On-the-fly-controls allow real-time adjustments to lighting and macros without the need of software, including Windows Lock On/Off to prevent accidental actuation during game play. Users can choose from two sizes depending on preference. The SK650 is a full layout keyboard while the SK630 is its little brother, a ten keyless layout for users with limited desk space.
Cooler Master will also release a Bluetooth and wireless version of aforementioned keyboards later this year as well as the SK621, a 65-key compact keyboard, perfect for on the go, available in late March. The Bluetooth and wireless versions, SK651, SK631, and SK621, will be available in white or gunmetal black. Cooler Master will offer models that are Apple and or Android compatible.

SK650: $/€ 139.99 January 29, 2019
SK630: $/€ 119.99 January 29, 2019

Any word on pricing of the tenkeyless bt version? And any word whether it'll work in wired mode? Does it charge through USB-C? If the price is passable ($10-20 over the non-BT version) and the answer to the latter two questions is "yes", then I'll be mighty interested in getting one of those at some point down the line.

No word on any of that yet, likely closer to launch.
