with nylon housing in case users want to lubricate.
The south-facing PCB of the MonsGeek M5 avoids causing interference
with Cherry profile keycaps, offering more compatibility and flexibility.

silver accent on other models. MonsGeek will start to offer standalone accents

The N-Key Rollover technology allows all keys to work simultaneously and ensures
every keystroke is recorded and prevents ghosting.

sticker for aethestics purposes.

Need More Foam?
Monsgeek has developed its own budget custom material that performs
equally as well as poron. Meanwhile, MonsGeek M5 comes with an additional
sponage case foam to reduce case ping.

down to your personal preference.
