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.

4 out of 5 eggsMy Dream Keyboard

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

Pros: A keyboard that is very well designed. It's solid, simple yet sleek. I love the missing numpad. The keys has a nice contour and a nice solid feel. They The keyboard also has a very nice solid rubber feet grip.

Cons: The braided cable is surprisingly fragile. I use this keyboard at home and never move it. It became unreliable after a month; The keyboard will not be powered and there's no obvious sign of damage. Therefore I have to readjust it randomly to find the sweet spot for it to work. (which is the most annoying thing ever as this can take up 1 to 5 minutes!)


Based on the internet, many other users experienced the same problem. I did a warranty request and they require me to ship the entire product to them. As an avid gamer/user this is ridiculous, they should've offer to ship a cable replacement! Instead of doing this process and wait for weeks, I bought my OWN cable to replace the faulty one..


With that said, this could be my perfect keyboard for general, gaming and programming usage. But the faulty cable and their poor warranty service will make me think again.

Other Thoughts: The keyboard is a bit warped when it arrive, so you have to bend it back to place for it to stand on your table evenly. (Not a problem)

4 out of 5 eggsGood keyboard at a good price

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

Pros: Cherry MX switches feel great, sleek design, all keys are working fine and the build quality feels very good. Good price for a quality mechanical keyboard.

Cons: The included USB to PS/2 adapter stopped working after a week. Not a big deal to me since 6KRO is fine for my purposes, however it means I'm down a USB slot.

4 out of 5 eggsGood keyboard

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

Pros: Good keyboard for gaming. Made a noticeable difference right away, much more responsive. Braided USB cord is really durable. Good price.

5 out of 5 eggsFeels great, quieter than my Ducky

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

Pros: This keyboard feels great for typing. My first mech. kbd was the ducky zero with CherryMX browns. The CM QuickFire Rapid feels very similar and comes at about the same price range. The build quality is great as well.

This one is quieter than the Ducky. While that is perfect for me, that might not be the case for everyone

Cons: None that I am aware of at preset. T

Other Thoughts: he letters on my Ducky are showing signs of fading. I will see how the CM storm lasts before updating my review on NewEgg.
