Anyone who has been around computers and gaming know of Cooler Master. They have provided us with the new Master Set 121 or MS121 and also give the consumer the ability to switch to Cherry key caps which is an exciting new feature. Today were going to be looking at their entry-level gaming peripherals and how they stack up against the other big gaming companies.
Packaging & Contents
The two pieces to our combo come blanketed in protection. The board has its own plastic shield in addition to the mouse having a styrofoam shroud.An instruction manual with all combinations for changing the RGB on both peripherals is included. Right out of the box this pair feels very sturdy. As we take the mouse out we notices that Cooler Master has added in an extra switch just in case you are as clumsy as us and damage a switch. This keyboard also comes with a full RGB image floating design. The board looks extremely minimal with its 104 key design and slim persona in addition to an anti-ghosting gaming mode. The small design is very apparent due to there being no wrist rest. We would like to note that this isn’t a bad thing, some gamer’s just prefer smaller boards. On the bottom of our board is two rubber feet as well as two adjustable feet to tilt the MS121. This board didn’t come with a key-remover tool, however, our Cherry key-remover worked perfectly. Total dimensions for our MS121 are 441 x 132.5 x 38mm. On the mouse we find simplicity mixed with customizability. Minimal mixed with simplistic creates a very professional looking mouse. The dimensions are 114 x 64 x 39mm. Cooler Master manages to fit two thumb buttons, three anti friction pads and a DPI switch into this small package.The MS121 is also designed to be ambidextrous even though the thumb buttons are only on one side.
