Note: M2 requires 2 x 1.5u function keys (ALT/FN) at R1. It is compatible with Akko MDA / SAL profile keycaps.

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 the M2 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 QMK version has adopted the new engraved back design with re-sized sticker for aethestics purposes.

Need More Foam?
Monsgeek has developed its own budget custom material that performs equally as well as poron. Meanwhile, MonsGeek M2 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.

The MonsGeek M-series has proven with the M1 and now the M2 to be the best value keyboards on the market. What you get for the price is just incredible. The M2 delivers a comfortable and customizable user experience with impressive quality at a very low price.

This is amazing. Nothing on the market can beat the value for the price of this board especially in this layout. I own boards that are much more premium and expensive. I still been using the M2 as my daily driver since I’ve built it. Really impressed.
