5 out of 5 eggsMy Favorite Computing Purchase

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

Pros: Solid Construction
Cherry MX Blues are so satisfying to type on
Compact size makes it easy to transport

Cons: No Dip Switches
Keycaps are a little cheap

Other Thoughts: I carry this keyboard back and forth to work everyday. I have done this for 2 years now. This keyboard has held up without any issues.

I would recommend replacing the keycaps. I have vortex pbt keycaps which can be found on various websites for under $30.

If you work in a cubicle or open floor office, I would recommend installing o-rings on the bottoms of your keycaps so your co-workers/friends do not murder from the sound this board creates.

For the price this keyboard is amazing. I would recommend to anyone looking for a mechanical keyboard.

5 out of 5 eggsMechanical so good

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

Pros: -sturdy/durable
-high quality
-very small takes up little space
-very comfortable
-i like the red replacement wasd keys

Cons: -none

Other Thoughts: This is my first mechanical keyboard and I love it. The sound of the cherry mx blues is oddly satisfying. This keyboard is a little tank. I threw it at my wall drunk one night (don't ask why) and it still looks new. Wall not so much.

4 out of 5 eggsGood well priced TKL mechanical kb

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

Pros: The keyboard has genuine Cherry MX Blue keys not clones and is decently priced. Keys provide tactile and audible feedback which is great for typing. TKL layout is really a bonus for me as I have no need for a TK keyboard and the lack of a numpad brings your mouse in closer which is more ergonomic.

They keyboard has a nice solid feel to it and does not move around. The design is straightforward and uses normal looking fonts for the keys unlike the Razor.

The capslock, scrlk, and windows lock keys have bright red leds so you will not be leaving them on accidentally.

Comes with keypuller and red optional WSAD key in red if you want to replace the standard black ones.

This is available with key backlighting for a higher price which might be useful if you are willing or unable to learn how to type or if you are in a cave.

Cons: It doesn't have any Apple-specific keys. Wait, this is the Cons section. My bad.

Other Thoughts: I bought this to replace a Razer BlackWidow Tournament TKL unit that features their "Green" Cherry MX Blue clone keys. The Razer was fine for a while but much noisier than MX Blues - and people think MX Blues are noisy. I liked the sound and the keyboard overall except some of the keys stopped making any noise at all, then they would make noise, and feedback was notably inconsistent between some of the keys. I could have replaced it instead of having it returned but decided to just go back to a known quantity.

5 out of 5 eggsHigh quality keyboard

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

Pros: The cherry blue switches are just perfect for a mix of typing and gaming. My son has a Corsair Gaming K70 with cherry reds, and I just make too many typing mistakes with it. Key actuation was just too light with the reds.

The Cooler Master branding is not all over the keyboard now. The branding is just in one spot now on the front side of the keyboard below the escape through F3 keys. You never see the branding during normal typing.

The fit and finish of the keyboard is very good, and the cherry blues sing that sweet tune when I am banging away at the keyboard.

Two year warranty is nice too. Already have mine registered with Cooler Master.

Cons: n/a

Other Thoughts: These keyboards are hard to find any where at a fair price. I kept checking Newegg everyday for two weeks to get this cherry blue board, and right after I bought one, Newegg went out of stock. It was worth the wait though because these are very good keyboards at a reasonable price.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Keyboard, One flaw

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

Pros: Responsive, well built, and compact. This is my first mechanical keyboard and it is very fun to type on. There isn't any extra software needed to use this keyboard, just plug and play.

The cable management is nice, which is under the keyboard, because I am using it for my laptop and I needed the cable to go only one way and not straight out in front.

Cons: The one flaw I have experienced is the keyboard's inability to work with my USB 3.0 port when booting the computer. It works when I unplug the keyboard, plug it in, then start my computer. However, if I keep the keyboard plugged in, shutdown, turn on, the computer hangs and does not boot. very annoying.

I do have a USB 2.0 port that works fine.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

I do apologize that you are having issues with your USB 3.0 port. In instances like these, not all manufacturer's make these ports the exact same and some will have kinks with certain peripherals and even USB 3.0 devices. I personally have a Toshiba Laptop with a USB 3.0 and when I plug in my USB 3.0 enabled external hard drive, my computer won't boot into windows. A reverse problem from yours. Check with your laptop manufacturer to see if they have any work arounds or solutions in this case. If not, then yes, use your USB 2.0 ports to avoid the issue.

If you ever have any more questions, concerns, or comments, please call us at 888.624.5009 or use the Cooler Master Fanzone to communicate with us through livechat or Tickets.

Please let us know how we can help in the future.

Respectfully,

Robert N.

5 out of 5 eggsI've never been so impressed!

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

Pros: I like how this keyboard feels. I can't believe at the fact that I've been missing out on mechanical keyboard for years! I've played PC gaming for quite some time now and never really believed in premium keyboards like this one. I mean I thought all keyboards were the same. But when I got this package today, everything went black for a minute and I just glared at it. This thing is very compact and it fits on my desk perfectly! Well it's true, once you start using mechanical keyboard, you will never go back to the cheap plastic ones!

Cons: There are no cons for me. I will update when as the time continues to move forward.

Other Thoughts: I'm going to have to get used to typing on a mechanical keyboard. I've made so many errors just typing this review. But every time I press a key, it feels so comfortable! Now, time to play some games!
