1 out of 5 eggsKeys activate before tactile point

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

Pros: Nothing that can overcome the fatal flaw.

Cons: As a long-time mechanical keyboard user, it didn't take long to notice a fatal flaw - the keys actually activate before the tactile point.

What is the point of a mechanical switch with a tactile point if the keyboard registers without giving feedback? So disappointed by this product.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Eric,

I'm sorry that you feel there is this issue with your keyboard. If this is only affecting a few keys, it may be an issue with those individual keys. Also, this is a RED switch keyboard where it may take time to learn the actuation point on this particular model as well as I am not familiar with the previous switchtypes or keyboards you've used before. I have gone and linked our article which goes indepth of each of our switchtypes for reference. If you have any other questions, comments, or issues, please let us know by visiting our Fanzone to livechat and ticket links or call us directly at 888.624.5099.

Respectfully,

Robert N.

5 out of 5 eggsfirst mechanical keyboard

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

Pros: Brown switches feel great, not too loud and annoying like blue switches.

Comes with red WASD keys, makes it easy to find them when the lights are down.

Cons: no 10key numpad, but i dont use that much anyways.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Quality, Reasonable Price

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

Pros: Easily the most cost-effective cherry brown keyboard I've owned.

Cons: I miss my numpad.

Other Thoughts: In this day and age where everyone is falling over each other to build a more expensive back-lit keyboard with 1000 extra buttons and features you're never going to want or use this keyboard is a breath of fresh air. It's a cheap, durable, and responsive deck of brown switches you won't regret buying... just don't forget to check whether or not you really want to give up your numpad.

5 out of 5 eggsGoing strong

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

Pros: This keyboard has been with me for 3 years now and it's a beast. I've purchased another mechanical keyboard since then for another computer and I love this one so much more. It's priced appropriately and has a great feel to it.

Cons: None with mine; however, I've heard some people having problems with the connector cable.

Other Thoughts: Buy the darn thing.

5 out of 5 eggsWonderful keyboard!

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

Pros: The Cherry MX Brown switch is a good all-round swich, so this is a good all-round keyboard.
The raised letters of the keycaps feel good.
Detachable cable plugs in via mini USB, good for easy replacement.
Tenkeyless for better mouse positioning.
Fantastic build quality.

Cons: While using the PS/2 adapter the cord sticks out from the computer about 4 inches.
Rubberized coating collects LOTS of dust, and is difficult to clean.
"Bottoming out" sound is quite loud.

Other Thoughts: The back stands are not rubberized.
Wish it had a USB pass-through.

4 out of 5 eggsits nice alright

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

Pros: its a really really nice simple keyboard. the keys are loud but not obnoxiously loud. some guy i know wakes his wife up with his cherry red mxs... these are a lot quieter but still have that nice punch and popping feeling to them.

Cons: no num pad... of course

Other Thoughts: in retrospect i wish i coughed up more money for a keyboard with a numpad. get this model only ifyou are pinched for space and want a small keyboard.

2 out of 5 eggsA shame since others loved it.

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

Pros: This crapped out on me a couple months ago and I am just not writing my review.

At the time this was a very good price for a solid keyboard + Cherry switches.

Cons: My computer started to lock up a while after installing this keyboard, I never put it together until key board errors started to happen. Non registering keys, then eventually it was no longer detected.

I have nothing against Cooler master but I would suggest adding Humidity stickers on the boards and upping the warranty.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Brian,

I'm sorry to hear that you're having issues with your keyboard. I see that you're having quite a number of issues concerning and if you don't mind, please contact our Customer Support staff. We can try to help troubleshoot whatever is occuring with your keyboard and if it comes down to it, help set you up with a replacement under the 2 year warranty. Plus if the keycaps are fading or being strange, we'll make sure to help with that as well.

Yet, as you've made the comment about upping the warranty, at this point and time, our keyboards, mice, and headsets are set at a 2 year manufacturer's warranty with no plans to change that. Depending on the retailer you've purchased the item from, many offer extended warranties through their own services which you will need to research. If you are out of warranty and your keyboard is defective, please visit a local computer/technology repair shop to be able to help get the item serviced for you as an option as well.

Please let me know though how we can help,

Respectfully,

Robert N.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Keyboard

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

Pros: ---Solid build quality
---Braided Cable
---Location of cable connection on bottom of keyboard virtually eliminates the possibility of accidentally snapping the cable at the connection.

Cons: ---Back feet not rubberized. Although this does not bother me, it may matter for someone else.

Other Thoughts: I needed a basic compact keyboard for my computer build (space restrictions on desk). This fit my needs perfectly. The media keys are a plus, although I wouldn't mind if they were necessarily there.

It would be nice if this was available with heavier cherry mx switches (green, clear, black) for those who prefer them.
