4 out of 5 eggsSolid, but with flaws

Pros: Outstanding mechanical switches. Light for a mechanical keyboard, but still very sturdy and much heavier than your average rubber dome keyboard. $55 after MIR - great price. Partial LED backlighting makes for a unique visual aesthetic.

Cons: Enter key stopped working 5 months into its lifespan. Processed an Advanced RMA through Coolermaster (waiting on the replacement to arrive) without issue.

Other Thoughts: 5 stars if the Enter key hadn't stopped working.

2 out of 5 eggsGood, but terrible design

Pros: It's a great keyboard. I love the way it feels. I've tried a lot of other mechanical keyboards and this one feels the best to me. I like that only a section is backlit. Great for gaming and for programming.

Cons: Terrible, awful, ABYSMAL design.The general layout of the keyboard is solid. It's the USB cable that's the hassle. Having a separate connecting mini-usb cable is an awful idea to begin with, but the area on the bottom of the keyboard where it plugs in; It's designed in such a way that the cable has to bend in a spine-twisting way to fit into the socket. Having it plugged in like that is almost GUARANTEED to cause failures. I've gone through 5 different mini-USB cables now. All of them breaking over time due to this terrible design.

Other Thoughts: Great keyboard, but I will be picking up another soon. Not sure what I'll get quite yet, but it won't be CM Storm.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Perry,

We greatly apologize for the trouble that you are having with the keyboard concerning the USB connection. Since the connection is on the bottom, it is meant for a nicer display of the cabling and provide better cable management along the cable channel grooves underneath. This was one of the first keyboards where we implemented the design and to help gaurantee a solid connection, when inserting the cable, there should be physical click when it is fully seated. It take a bit of a push to get this in. Plus, having a removable cable is better for individuals who travel and bring their computers to LAN events to not damage the connector.

Yet, with newer designs, we've begun to do place the connection at the top of the keyboard, rather than on the bottom because of this feedback. We understand if you're not satisfied with the Quickfire Pro's design. Please contact us by Live Chat (link below) or phone (888-624-5099) where we can help to make a suggestion that suited for you.

5 out of 5 eggsOne of the Best Mechanical Keyboard

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Nice tactile feedback from the brown switches. Loud but not that bad.

Cons: Backlight is limited to a few "gaming" keys. I personally find the font of the keys ugly and unnecessary.

Not the fault of the keyboard, but I bought it for typing, not gaming, and I'm concerned that because the keyboard features a brown switch (as opposed to blue), nothing is preventing me from bottoming out.

5 out of 5 eggsclicky clicky

Pros: Feels great to type on, satisfying tactile response and click. If you know you'll like browns then you should enjoy this keyboard.

Have had it for the better part of 2 months now without any issues.

Cons: These aren't really cons so much as things to take into consideration:

Can be a little noisy to others, if you are going to be around people who are sensitive to hearing you type then I wouldn't recommend it.

Not fully back-lit but that's not really that big of an issue for me, if you want something that has full back-lighting for uber gamer status you might want to look at Coolermaster's other options or another keyboard manufacture.

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible

Pros: Feels great. Nice controls and layout.

Cons: Doesn't last. On on my second keyboard. The first had problems recognizing key strikes, especially with the enter key. I returned it, paying shipping to them, and it was malfunction and crashing usb. Talked to customer service turned out it was a bad usb cable. Ordered another one. They sent the wrong usb and had to request another one.
Now the keyboard, which I've had for perhaps 2 weeks is having the same exactly issues.

Other Thoughts: This is not a con for this product, but next time I will spend more on a keyboard that has all they keys backlit.

This is my first Cool Master product and I have to say I will not be purchasing anymore from them.

2 out of 5 eggsTerrible Customer Service

Pros: This is a good solid keyboard, when it works.

Cons: When it doesn't it's the most frustrating thing to deal with. Mine broke within 2 month's use so I used my warranty and sent it back, received it back within a week and turns out the left alt key is broken so I call them again. I get promised that I will receive a free shipping label in my email, after 2 days of no email I call again and turns out the first person just wrote it down as a note to send me a label and never fulfilled it so the second guy tells me he'll send me one within 24 hours. It's been well over 24 hours and still no label, do they just not want me to have a functioning keyboard?

Manufacturer Response:

Dear customer,

We sincerely apologize for any trouble you had regarding this situation. Would you be able to contact us directly at the phone number below extension 602 so we can get this sorted for you asap?

4 out of 5 eggsSolid keyboard, but wish it was fully backlit

Pros: Cherry MX Brown Switches
Price (instant rebate + mail-in rebate)
Build quality

Cons: Function Lock key works, but does not work as advertised
Not fully backlit
Can't choose backlighting color
(these three reasons are why it only gets 4/5)

Other Thoughts: This keyboard arrived yesterday (4/10/14), and I just wanted to share my experience so people don't think their Function lock key is broken. Basically, the Function lock key does not work as stated in the literature or shown in Newegg's video (or any other videos I've seen). Both the literature and the videos state that the Function lock should work like the Caps lock key - press it once and the key becomes backlit and allows you to access the alternate keys along the F row. However, on mine I have to hold down the Function key in order to access everything, just like a standard laptop keyboard with a Function key. Also, the Function lock key never becomes backlit (all other advertised backlighting works fine). It's not a deal breaker though, but it did make me raise an eyebrow at first and make me think something was wrong with the keyboard. I have no plans to return it since I'm not missing any functionality and I got a really great deal through Newegg. They had a $30 instant rebate and $25 MIR, so the final cost for the keyboard was $58!

I also wish this keyboard could become fully backlit and be available with other colors of backlighting (everything else I have is blue). However, the Quickfire Ultimate wasn't in stock when I decided to buy, which would have given me a fully white-backlit, and it would be $50 more for the Ultimate anyway.

I enjoyed some MMO gaming on it last night, and I look forward to trying it out in some FPS this weekend.

3 out of 5 eggsUneven Rubber Feet?

Pros: Feel to mx browns, 1ms polling, Full NKRO.

Cons: The keyboard does not sit flat on my desk (or counter, or table... my previous one does). I see another user posted the same issue. Placing a nickle under the front left rubber pad mostly stops the keyboard from tilting but now makes it prone to sliding.

Other Thoughts: I am hopeful this gets resolved soon, I will edit the rating and review accordingly. I have sent in a request @ cooler masters site.

1 out of 5 eggsBroken keys after 1 month

Pros: Looks good, cm bowns.

Cons: The r key is already broken. 1 month of use, not very intensive.

Other Thoughts: Never buying from cm again, their website is terrible for rmas.
