4 out of 5 eggsFantastic keyboard for the price

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

Pros: -Great clicky feel without too heavy of an actuation point, perfect for both gaming and typing.
-Has a tenkeyless design that still includes a numberpad. I use a numpad frequently and I still get the functionality I need at the size i want. Fantastic.
-Keyboard is solid and well built, especially for this price point. From the rubber feet being absolutely rock solid, to the entire thing having pretty much 0 flex, this keyboard gives you more than what you pay for in terms of build quality.
-Spacebar feels very solid and balanced.
-4 Lighting modes. Off, WASD, all on, and pulsating.
-Lights are bright and look good. Even in a fully lit room the white lights look fantastic. The glow effect is very cool.
-Braided cable, with cable management that goes left, straight or right. Beautiful feature. You can unplug the USB cable for easy transport.
-Comes with a keycap remover.

Cons: -The double 0 key (00) on the numpad threw me off but its pretty easy to get over it.
-It doesnt do my laundry. Or pay my bills.

Other Thoughts: Fantastic keyboard. CM delivers fantastic quality for a fantastic price.

5 out of 5 eggsCM Storm Quickfire TK -- Brown Switches

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

Pros: -Compact size
-Key spacing is comfortable
-White backlighting (brown switch only) is soft
-Solid feel (both the keyboard and the keys)

Cons: -Cooler Master is discontinuing this.

Other Thoughts: The TK has the Ins/Del/Home/End/PgU/PgD, tenkeypad and arrow keys merged into one. It took a bit for me to get used to but it's truly a great feature. Saves some space on my desk.

It really is a shame Cooler Master is discontinuing the CM Storm keyboards. I would have bought 2 more, one with blue switches and another with reds.

2 out of 5 eggsSwitches began dying

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

Pros: Mechanical switches, initially very responsive, back-lit, compact while still retaining numberpad

Cons: switches did not live up to longevity claims.

Other Thoughts: After about ~1 year of use, A and D keys became extremely fickle and regularly unresponsive. A & D may enter twice when depressed, often times they simple do not register at all. Typing this message alone was a task to get keys to register. My razer lasted longer and is still kicking, but its switches are blues.

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

Pros: Like the size and the keys feel great.

Cons: Remembering to switch between 10 key and Alt {INS DEL HOME} The smaller size is worth it.

5 out of 5 eggsWow! Much nicer than expected

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

Pros: I just picked this up last week and I'm very impressed with the build quality. I moving from a KB talking race 75% which is a highend Taiwanese compact keyboard and this new CM keyboard is much much better in build quality.

The keyboard is heavy and feels very very solid in it's construction. The backlighting is very strong at max settings. The Cherry mx Browns feel great coming from Cherry blues. I'm actually glad I went with the browns this time.

Cons: It has a numpad......something I simply don't need but the keyboard is still very compact compared to a fullsize.

4 out of 5 eggsClickity Clack

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

Pros: I wanted to try out mechanical keyboards and this by far is such a better typing experience. I sat around 100WPM and this boosted me to 110WPM and it has a very nice feel. See Cons.

Cons: Only complaint is the space bar started squeaking after moderate use, looked around for a solution and got it back to its normal sound.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent compact mechanical keyboard

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

Pros: Cherry MX Brown Switches
White LED to match that color scheme
White backing behind keys to enhance lighting effect
Nice bright LEDs with available pulsing lighting effect
Numpad! On a compact size keyboard
Impeccable build quality

Cons: Arrow keys are within numpad. This might be detrimental to some
I personally would have preferred a different font on the keycaps, but this is the CM Storm signature font for their keyboards.

Other Thoughts: I have been waiting for the Quickfire TK - Cherry MX Brown w/ White LED version - to come in stock for weeks. From Newegg to Best Buy to B&H, this keyboard has been backordered for SO long. I would not settle with any other keyboard. Why? Because this is the only keyboard in the market that has the small form factor of the CM Storm Quickfire line as well as a numpad. I absolutely needed a numpad for daily use, but seeing as this keyboard was unavailable for so long, I was so close to settling with the newer Quickfire Rapid-I (which is a tenkeyless keyboard with flashy lighting effects).

Thus, when I finally saw it available on Newegg two days ago, I was so excited. And my expectations when I received it were high. My other desktop arrangement at home features a Corsair Vengeance K70 Cherry MX Red with Red Backlight Keyboard. I like the seamless light feeling of the Cherry MX Reds, but for my dorm room setup (which is why I purchased the Quickfire TK) I was eager to try a new switch.

I can 100% with confidence say that now I prefer the Cherry MX Browns. The Brown switches don't have a loud clack so they won't wake your roommate, girlfriend, or parents. They feel awesome with the subtle feedback when hitting the actuation point. The Quickfire TK has amazing build quality in that it feels heavy and substantial. The keycaps are great, and the backlighting is fantastic. The levels range from just right to really bright, and I love the pulsing light mode that matches my Steelseries Sensei mouse LED. I am sure the CM Storm line of mechanical keyboards all stick to this quality. If you are in the market for a mechanical keyboard go for a CM Storm keyboard. You won't be disappointed.

If you are in the market for a compact size, numpad featuring, LED backlit keyboard - then the Quickfire TK is where it's at. There are multiple options when it comes to backlighting and switches, so check it out!
