MK-50

The bundle of the MK-50 is limited to just an installation guide, four interchangeable key caps and a tool for changing the caps. There's also an USB-PS/2-adapter included, as while the primary connection for the MK-50 is PS/2, it can also be plugged into an USB-port.

Out of the box the keyboard looks exactly like the MK-85, but there are some tiny differences that are instantly obvious in a side-by-side-comparison. First of all while the Fn-key is still there, there aren't as many alternate commands on the F-keys and none on the numpad as the MK-50 doesn't have back light to control. The MK-50 also lacks the USB-hub and audio through-puts.

To get the best out of the MK-50 it needs to be connected via PS/2. The keyboard comes with an USB-adapter, but unlike the MK-85, the MK-50 doesn't offer full NKRO over USB, only the PS/2. The MK-50 also lacks the audio connectors and USB-hub seen on its bigger brother so the cable isn't nearly as thick and stiff.

The MK-50 uses the same Cherry MX Red-switches as the top of the range model, so the typing touch is identical. The thing to notice here though is the lack of leds next to the switches, and indeed the lack of backlight is the most visible difference when compared to the MK-85.
