While we just reviewed the MasterKeys Pro L RGB not too long ago here, there’s another spin-off variant of that magnificent keyboard – the version with white LEDs. Now, I do know for a fact that there are people who don’t like RGB lights – like me, for example. That’s why the MasterKeys Pro L White LEDs exist. In a lot of ways, this keyboard is different with its RGB brother. Here is the MasterKeys Pro L White LEDs.
The box design of both the RGB and white LEDs version don’t have much difference, other than the highlight in its white LEDs, obviously.
Opening the box reveals the same contents too. Keyboard wrapped in a fabric sleeve, user manual tucked underneath the keyboard, and all other accessories are placed at the small little compartment above the keyboard.
Again, you’ll get the keycap wire puller – which is a really nice change than the usual el cheapo plastic keycap pullers.
Taking in the exact same dimensions and design of the case from its RGB brother. The MasterKeys Pro L White LEDs still has UV-coated plastic material across the top housing of the case, and has a white backplate for better LED glow.
This time around, it uses the classic Cherry MX Brown switch with blade opaque case. That’s the switch that I personally know, love, and use personally. And again, same cable routes at the back.
Also, since it uses the classical black-cased Cherry MX brown switches, it will require DIP LED switches instead of surface-mounted ones. This is because the case is not transparent like its RGB switch brethren, and thus will require the LED to be moved above the switch itself.
However, Cooler Master did say that it has something called the Intelligent White LEDs. How intelligent are they, anyway? More on this later.
