MonsGeek MG M2 QMK Mechanical Keyboard Kit

1800 compact layout are efficient, and ideal for users who want to maintain the full-size of the keyboard while save desk space.
Note: M2 requires 2 x 1.5u function keys (ALT/FN) at R1. It is compatible with Akko MDA / SAL profile keycaps. Given M2 intl’ version is QMK programmable, users can literally program any key; hence, any keycap sets with alternate 1.5u R1 keys are theoretically compatible with M2 such as Marrs Green, World Tour Tokyo Cherry Profile etc.

PCB Mount/Screw-in stabilizers tend to vibrate less. M2 uses Akko transparent white stabilizers (un-assembled) with nylon housing in case users want to lubricate.
Gasket Mounted Style
With the Gasket-mounted structure, the isolation between the plate and the case gives a unique sound and feel compared to other mounting styles.
The south-facing PCB of M2 1800 mechanical keyboard barebone avoids causing interference with Cherry profile keycaps, offering more compatibility and flexibility.
New Silver Accent
While M2 silver comes with golden accent, MonsGeek has picked the new silver accent on other models. MonsGeek will start to offer standalone accent for sale to better personalize each unit based on user preference.
The N-Key Rollover technology allows all keys to work simultaneously and ensures every keystroke is recorded and prevents ghosting.
Engraved Back Design
M2 Aluminum Kit QMK version has adopted the new engraved back design with a re-sized sticker for aesthetics purposes.
QMK / VIA
MonsGeek M2 supports VIA for cross-platform (Linux/Mac/Windows) advanced keyboard configuration.
This feature is exclusively for international version of M2.
Need More Foam?
Monsgeek has developed its own budget custom material that performs equally as well as poron. Meanwhile, MonsGeek M2 custom kit comes with an additional sponage case foam to reduce case ping.
*Disclaimer: Using thicker foam may reduce flex, whether to include it or not is down to your personal preference.
PET Insulation Layer
A PET insulation layer has been added to the bottom case in order to prevent any short circuit issues. It’s rare for these issues to occur but we want to add extra protection.

Extra tape for users who wish to perform a tape mod.
MonsGeek includes a default 3mm custom-made foam for a balanced feeling. Disclaimer: the foam will affect the overall sound profile and flex.
