5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Gaming Mouse, Not Enough Practical Use

This review is from: CM Storm QuickFire TK - Compact Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with CHERRY MX Blue Switches and Fully Backlit

Pros: Alright, so the quick things to know about this mouse are that it is an excellent mouse. Adjustable DPI, the ability to bind on the fly adjusting, rebinding every button is possible, though it is required you have some buttons bound (i.e. left click, right click) The Logitech Gaming Software can be a bit of a pain to get working on some computers, but i'm not docking it an egg because it's worked on virtually every computer I've tried it on after a bit of a fight on some. The mouse is large, so it fills my hand, but for some this may be a con. The buttons feel nice and are indented to fit your thumb in an area of 6 of the total 12 side buttons, and it really is a great experience using this mouse. It takes a bit of learning to use all 12 side buttons, and feels awkward at times, but it's not bad once you learn. There's very few flaws, and most of those I have listed as pros because I enjoy my mice beefy.

Cons: Very few, but includes:

- Side buttons are easy to press but hard to locate for novices
- The software can be a bit of a pain to get working
- Sometimes the mouse feels too light, but I won't dock for this.

Other Thoughts: Really a great mouse, I would definitely buy many more for the low price I paid. It's lasted a few months so far, here's to hoping for a few years.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

This review is from: CM Storm QuickFire TK - Compact Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with CHERRY MX Blue Switches and Fully Backlit

Pros: Nice narrow keyboard - no more bumping into the numpad keys with the mouse. Very nice looking blue led keys, several led modes, very durable feeling, nice braided detachable cord. Fits excellent in a desk with a wrist/hand rest already on the pull out tray (or where you would generally put the keyboard.)

Cons: Very loud and clacky sounding/feeling, kind of feels like typing on a typewriter- that's just the cherry MX blue switch though I presume. It's also very thick, the top of the keys to the bottom of the keyboard is about 1 inch - not very comfortable using this on a flat table without a wrist rest of some sort.

Other Thoughts: I ended up modding the keyboard by removing each key and placing an o-ring on the bottom, (there are tutorials on Youtube of this) and it's significantly nicer feeling to type on and sounds slightly quieter.

1 out of 5 eggsVery bad customer service!

This review is from: CM Storm QuickFire TK - Compact Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with CHERRY MX Blue Switches and Fully Backlit

Pros: Blue switches, comes with key cap puller, TKL, back feet are fully coated with rubber.

Cons: Works fine with Linux and Windows, not with OS X

The customer service is dismal

Other Thoughts: I will never endorse any Cooler Master product again after buying this board. The enter key LED wasn't working which wasn't a huge issue, returning the board seemed foolish due to the expenses involved so I contacted CM hoping for a small refund, credit or something else. I was fine with replacing the LED myself as I would have liked a red LED for enter anyway. I contacted them 3 times in 10 days before hearing anything back and they simply said they would RMA it. Needless to say it's going back to POP for a refund and this is my last CM purchase.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect keyboard

This review is from: CM Storm QuickFire TK - Compact Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with CHERRY MX Blue Switches and Fully Backlit

Pros: Amazing mechanical keyboard. Extremely sturdy and well-built. Compact layout makes it space efficient without sacrificing functionality. The blue backlighting looks fantastic. The cherry mx blue switches are a joy to type on. It doesn't have any superfluous features such as macro keys that tend to make keyboards big and bulky.

This keyboard is one of the best purchases I have made.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: One of the best mechanical keyboards out there especially for the price. Highly recommended.

4 out of 5 eggsNo separate Del or Arrow Keys

This review is from: CM Storm QuickFire TK - Compact Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with CHERRY MX Blue Switches and Fully Backlit

Pros: Love the mechanical clickiness and feel
Gorgeous blue backlighting with adjustable brightness

Cons: Keypresses are louder than expected
INS/DEL/PGUP/PGDN/ARROWS are shared with num keys.

Other Thoughts: A little bigger keyboard with separate keys would have been perfect.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid performer. Absurd number-pad.

This review is from: CM Storm QuickFire TK - Compact Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with CHERRY MX Blue Switches and Fully Backlit

Pros: The feedback/click from the keys are very good. They are just a tad shallow for my tastes, as I have a more forceful typing-style than most.

Also, I'm not a PC gamer, so I can't attest to the usefulness for them, but I really enjoy the variety of lighting options available. They're great eye-candy

Cons: The downside: the number-pad. Normally, I'm a fan of Cooler Master, but this number-pad is absolutely heinous.

Again, the TK layout is probably more beneficial for gamers, but for productive taskers it is infuriating.

I work with numbers (code, spreadsheets, etc.) often so inputting them on the number pad has become an innate habit.

With the TK, you HAVE to switch from number lock to scroll lock! And I will admit, before I purchased this product, I thought, "Eh, no big deal, I'll figure it out." Nope. It's been a couple of months now...maybe I'm not using it enough?

If you are planning on using this as an everyday productive tasks keyboard do yourself a favor and stay away from the TK.

I ended up buying a Quickfire Pro MX Brown keys for the office and just use this at home.

Other Thoughts: ALSO who uses the 00 key? Honestly?

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome!

This review is from: CM Storm QuickFire TK - Compact Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with CHERRY MX Blue Switches and Fully Backlit

Pros: It's a mechanical keyboard. Durable and will last me a long time. Haven't had any problems with it. Backlight is gorgeous and I love the braided cable.

Cons: The Cherry MX Blue switches are a little loud for me, but I expected that. Should've waited to get the version with the brown switches.

1 out of 5 eggsI regret buying this! Terrible Customer Service from Cooler Master

This review is from: CM Storm QuickFire TK - Compact Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with CHERRY MX Blue Switches and Fully Backlit

Pros: This keyboard is nicely compact and played games perfect for like a week. I installed buffers on most of the keys so it sounds a lot quieter as well.

The plug is a pro and a con:
I like that it is detachable but the implementation is poor and ends up being a fragile part of an otherwise solid machine. Seems like a huge oversight.

I really enjoyed the number pad function and being able to switch back and forth is now into my routine keyboard use.

Cons: - Backlighting has limited choices and they are all much too bright for a dark room which is really the whole point of backlighting.

Cooler Master customer service was terrible. I contacted Cooler Master after my keyboard broke 2 weeks into using it. The cord that was sent was faulty and so is the port for plugging it in. I have tried different cables and the keyboard lights up but won't type letters, just the modifier keys to activate certain parts of the keyboard.

Cooler Master IGNORED my claim for a replacement. I have waited more than a week for a reply (one they stated would be sent the next day).

I WILL NOT be buying anything else from them. Since, this board was a compact replacement for my Razer Black Widow I really regret the switch. I was really surprised by this purchase, in the most negative way.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear valued customer,
I'm sincerely sorry for the troubles you're having with your TK and getting service. For your immediate needs, you can apply for an RMA replacement using the "RMA" link I've provided below. Could you please contact us directly via our Live Chat system that's in the "Contact Us" link I'm providing below and refer to this review so that we can assist you directly and see what's going on? We're here to help and we definitely don't outright ignore requests. So please contact us as soon as you can! We also do have Ticket submission and a phone number on the same page as well, if that's within your preference or the Live Chat hours aren't available for you.

Regards,
Kevin with Cooler Master

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing

This review is from: CM Storm QuickFire TK - Compact Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with CHERRY MX Blue Switches and Fully Backlit

Pros: Love this keyboard. Got it when it was on sale for $70. WORTH
Back lighting is very vibrant. Extremely durable feel.

Cons: The number pad/ arrow keys take a while to get used to. Only thing I wish was different is the enter key on the numpad only works if numlock is on rather than all the time.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for virgin typer

This review is from: CM Storm QuickFire TK - Compact Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with CHERRY MX Blue Switches and Fully Backlit

Pros: I have never owned a high pc, let alone a high end keyboard. This keyboard has felt amazing with every single click and the response sound is nothing below satisfying.

Also getting faster speeds than on past keyboards and have been improving over the couple of months I have owned it.

Cons: The first week the left shift key was getting stuck when i pressed it, but after a while of use it fixed right up and haven't have a problem since.
