M1 HE Fully Assembled
MonsGeek’s first aluminum keyboard features magnetic switches and is also compatible with 3-pin mechanical switches.
Additionally, with magnetic switches, users can easily customize the actuation distance, which is especially useful for gamers seeking rapid actions at their fingertips, particularly in FPS games, as demonstrated by the following functions:
- Rapid Trigger
- Dynamic Keystrokes
Note: The M1 HE is not compatible with QMK/VIA, please perform the customizations through the MonsGeek Driver.
M1 HE – Magnetic Switch Keyboard
Adjustable Actuation Distance
These magnetic switches allow users to adjust every key’s actuation point from 0.2mm to 3.8mm in 0.1mm increments, which offers different kinds of pressing for gaming or typing.
Rapid Trigger (RT)
Rapid Trigger dynamically changes the keys’ actuation and deactivation points. Through the MonsGeek Driver, users can choose “All Buttons” or “Per Button” customization modes, as well as activate “Non-stop Rapid Trigger” for near-instant key response. This gives FPS gamers a competitive edge in fast-paced gameplay.
For example, when gamers enable RT, they can achieve “Counter-Strafe“ in VALORANT games.
Dynamic Keystrokes (DKS)
Pressing a key can trigger four different key operations.
Depending on your keypress force: a light press triggers action 1, a deeper press activates action 2, and releasing the key also supports a two-stage key setting.
With on-board memory, users can save their preferred settings without keeping the software or drivers on, ensuring easy access to their personalized configurations.

PORON Plate Foam
