5 out of 5 eggsGreat Keyboard, good price

This review is from: CM Storm QuickFire Rapid - Compact Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with CHERRY MX Blue Switches

Pros: This is a great keyboard, and if you are hesitant, don't be. CM makes great products.

Cons: None really.

Other Thoughts: This keyboard is a little cheaper than most mechanical keyboards. It lacks the bells and whistles, like backlighting, and audio/mic ports. But if you are looking for a great keyboard for a reasonable price, this is it.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing, quick, and accurate

This review is from: CM Storm QuickFire Rapid - Compact Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with CHERRY MX Blue Switches

Pros: I love the MX blues. Great tactile feedback and quick response. I just have to get use to no 10 key pad.

Cons: Not really a good but I wish they put more key caps in the bag. Like different colors.

5 out of 5 eggsVery good keyboard

This review is from: CM Storm QuickFire Rapid - Compact Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with CHERRY MX Blue Switches

Pros: Nice mechanical keys. Clicky Clicky Click. The best part about mechanical keyboards is the uniformity of the keystrokes. The finish on this board is great and contrary to the Newegg video this keyboard with the Blue switches is finished in black and not grey/silver. Considered the Reds due to concern over the black finish so am very happy. Love the function keys and the red led lights for Caps lock, windows key and scroll lock. The braided cable is a nice touch.

Cons: Good quality for sure, but the keys are very close together and so the keyboard feels constrained. I have no issues with the Blue keys, although I had tried only browns before this.

Other Thoughts: Comparing this to my Das Keybaord only serves to show that the Das is just better as a keyboard, This board has some travel on the space bar for example and although it feels very sturdy it is just not quite up to the standard of the Das. As for the finish of the board I would argue this one is better as it has a non-glossy finish and comes with keys to replace WASD which I had to order separately for the Das. To be fair I am being nit-picky as this is a great keyboard and I love that it is small as I use it for a travel keybaord for a gaming rig.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent keyboard

This review is from: CM Storm QuickFire Rapid - Compact Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with CHERRY MX Blue Switches

Pros: This keyboard is great. It's small, and simple, yet it is nice to look at. The feel of the keyboard is very quality.

I absolutely love the blue switches. There is also a button to lock the windows key so you don't accidentally hit it when in a game, which is very useful! The font looks great, and it also comes with red key caps for the WASD keys that look very nice. It also comes with a PS2 adapter and a key cap puller. Another small feature is that the cable for the keyboard is detachable, which is very useful for toting it around.


This keyboard is a joy to type on!

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: Since I changed from black switches to blue, I was not used to how light blue are. I often would accidentally hold down a key, just a little, but enough to trigger the key. It takes a little getting used to, but I heavily prefer this to my black switches.

The lights for scroll lock and caps lock are also a little bright, but it doesn't bother me.

Keep in mind this keyboard is 10-keyless, so if you're used to typing your credit card number etc. with that, you won't be able to use it on this keyboard!

Highly recommend this product if you are looking for a quality blue switch keyboard.

5 out of 5 eggsBest keyboard I have had yet

This review is from: CM Storm QuickFire Rapid - Compact Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with CHERRY MX Blue Switches

Pros: This mechanical keyboard is the first I have used, and I am in love with it.
I have greatly improved my gaming skills within the first week, and I can move so much faster and have a better APM.
The clickiness from the MX Blue switches is awesome. I like the sound.
At first, the keyboard was a little difficult to use because I am used to a Logitech K400 keyboard. Took no time at all to get used to it.

Cons: So far nothing. Here and there the keyboard derps and doesn't want to work, so I have to disconnect it and reconnect it a couple of times. Its not enough to take off an egg, its probably an error from my side anyways. Other than that, I am fairly impressed with this board.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

This review is from: CM Storm QuickFire Rapid - Compact Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with CHERRY MX Blue Switches

Pros: It feels solid, heavy, and well made. It's very compact (no numpad). Great keyboard for the price point but also stacks up well against my friend's DAS.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsJust Great

This review is from: CM Storm QuickFire Rapid - Compact Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with CHERRY MX Blue Switches

Pros: Great typing experience, the tactile feedback is there as to be expected with cherry mx blue keys. The build quality is fantastic, if you picked the keyboard up and tried to twist it as hard as you could, it wouldn't give an inch. The rubberized surface feels great and the laser etched keys don't wear.

Cons: There is only one con that deserves to be put on this list. The replacement WASD keys are made of a different plastic and feel different. They do not feel bad, however this may irritate some people.

Other Thoughts: Over all a great keyboard, especially for somone like me who has limited desk space. The missing num-pad isn't on the con list because there is a model that has the number pad. Solid buy for $90.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Keyboard

This review is from: CM Storm QuickFire Rapid - Compact Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with CHERRY MX Blue Switches

Pros: Feels really nice to type
Compact, Tenkeyless

Cons: Sometimes my quick double taps don't register because I didn't depress the key enough to reactivate the switch. That's the design of blues though, and I was already aware of that.
I'm also not a big fan of the clicks, but again, I knew that when buying.

Other Thoughts: I wanted to get this in Cherry MX Browns, but when when I saw the blues for a sale at I think $50? I couldn't pass it up. It was a great investment and I love it.
