Good choice. I have been using my Coolermaster Trigger-Z brown for over 3 years now.
If the Master Pro quality is anything like the Trigger, then should last you a while.

OK !
Just got the keyboard today and i must say im pretty amazed!

let me say first that i had Blue / Red And steelseries switches b4!

and the Brown are the best one's so far! im really enjoying typing in my keyboard now!! biggrin.gifbiggrin.gif


I got the Coolermaster Masterkey Pro L from amazon and it came flowless

the Keyboard itself is normal sized and the keycaps not too high like my old Ducky Shine 3! but also not so Low profiles as my old Apex m800 - its like the best of both worlds and i really like it

The board is very sturdy and you can tell its very high quailty !

the USB cable is a bit short but i managed.

I plugged in the keyboard and few seconds later its working - i downloaded the latest CM software and updated the Frimware and choosed my desire color profile
The FM update took few seconds and the whole proccess and working with the software been flawless!

The keyboard comes with a White PCB (i think it called) which makes the Lighting MUCHHHH BETTER !!

You can also control every single thing on the keyboard using the FN keys and the tiny manual it comes with!

maybe im super hyped but so far:

Very good looking board
Very high quality
Best RGB in my opnion
Very easy and flawless software to work with!

The Brown Switches probably my most favorite thing in the keyboard!

Its always exciting getting new gear and using it for the first time smile.gif especially is the realm of keyboards. Glad that going with Browns worked out for you, I have found that people either really enjoy or really hate browns. I like browns but ONLY for specific things, but i do wish my work keyboard had Browns instead of these Blues (too loud). Break it in for a good month and see if you notice anything different about the switches. Good buy and good luck, enjoy it!
