Monsgeek M5 At a Glance:

Sound and Feel

Each component of the Monsgeek M5 was carefully chosen to produce an affordable keyboard that feels and sounds like a high end board right out of the box. 


Gasket Mount

The Monsgeek M5 uses the same gasket mounting system as many other premium boards. Versus a standoff mounting system as offered by other boards in the same price point. Gasket mounting offers a good combination of increased durability and better typing feel due to the keyboards' flex within the case. 


No Compromise

The MonsGeek M5 is an enthusiast grade keyboard at an entry level price. This barebones kit offers all the features one would expect in a board twice the price including: hotswap PCB, 2 piece aluminum case, gasket mount design, QMK firmware, and south facing RGBs. All of the features and quality for far less money.


QMK/VIA Compatible

The MonsGeek M5 is fully compatible with VIA, the premier programming software for premium mechanical keyboards. Monsgeek M5 has complete plug-and-play software support using the VIA web interface.



The Monsgeek M5 is hotswap compatible so you can easily switch between any of your favorite MX switches.
