5 out of 5 eggsA great solution to 10 keyless

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

Pros: 10 Keyless is nice, you gain so much more space on your desk and it also feels better having your mouse closer to WASD. The only problem with 10 keyless is the removal of the numpad. This keyboard combines those middle buttons with the numpad giving a full keyboard experience. It toggles between the two with the numlock button. The arrow keys will light up when the keyboard has disabled the numpad.
The keyboard also has a removable cord using Mini-USB and it can be routed to the left, middle or right side of your keyboard. So if something happen to the cord, it can be replaced very easily.
Back light is very nice too. The white matches pretty much everything and has a lot of brightness levels. You can light up just WASD or everything.
Windows button lock function is great too in case you fat-finger it a lot.
Build quality is 10/10 and the material is a nice rubbery material.

Cons: I switched from Blue switches to this, and the tactile bump is okay but not very obvious, subjectively unnecessary given the price increase and lack of options compared to Reds. Nothing to do with the keyboard, but more of a thought about the switches. However, with this keyboard browns are better in my opinion because they have a white LED while the blue switch version has blue lights and reds have red lights.

Other Thoughts: A great way to jump into 10 Keyless.

2 out of 5 eggsStopped working after ONE day

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

Pros: Nice key switches, perfect size, durable cable, good key caps.

Cons: Unsure of the reliability of this keyboard. Wouldn't recommend modding this keyboard as a result so you have the option to return it still.

Other Thoughts: My situation is similar of one of the other reviewers of this keyboard. The day the keyboard arrived I took the screws out of the back to remove the front panel to spray paint because there is no white variant of this keyboard. I spray painted the top frame, allowed more than sufficient drying time, reassembled and everything was well. The keyboard worked like a charm. However, when I woke up the next morning the keyboard would NOT connect to my pc.

No matter what I cannot get this keyboard to connect to any pc at all. The keyboard keeps on connecting and disconnecting from my pc without an end. I'm upset a little because before I unscrewed anything I tested the keyboard FIRST and everything checked out just fine. Some cm online associates (who were very helpful) tried extensive trouble shooting with this thing, but it seems there are no solutions in my unique case. All in all, try this keyboard because with the time I had with it I really enjoyed it. I wouldn't risk voiding the warranty though.

Manufacturer Response:

Good Morning Isaiah,

I appreciate the feedback as I was able to test a Quickfire TK on a Windows 10 machine to validate that it indeed works as your case may very well be an isolated issue since your first contact with us several days ago for troubleshooting. Were you able to try disconnecting all your USB devices on your Windows 10 PC and plug it back in once Windows 10 has loaded? If that did not work did you uninstall it in your device manager and reinstall and update the default USB HID drivers? Let me know for any updates.

Regards,
Felinni M.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat 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 size, backlighting is fantastic, and very light.

Cons: Took the longest to ship of all of my order, over a week compared to 5 days with the others.

Other Thoughts: Takes some time getting used to having to toggle the num lock in order to use the keypad and the arrow keys seamlessly. Definitely not your friend if you need both at the same time.

1 out of 5 eggsWorst Support you will ever experience

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

Pros: I like the key board

Cons: Support. 3 months into owning this keyboard the led's started to burn out so I opened an RMA on 1/7/15. Today is 3/5/15 and I don't have it back yet. It sat in their warehouse for 6 weeks because the were having issues in the warehouse. Once rcvd into repair, not brown cherry replacements. Would you like another flavor. Lastly, oh we are going to send you a replacement when we get them in stock. They NEVER mentioned that if you had special keys to keeps them so now I have to rebuy an apple key set for the second time.

Other Thoughts: Life is to short to be working with these guys. Buy two cuz you will need something to use as you go thru their 2+ month repair process. For a $160.00 keyboard I would expect some level of service but none to be gotten here.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

I do apologize that you have had issues and an unpleasent experience with our service. Since the holidays, our warehouse has had a tremendous time in trying to catch back up on its many requests. During these past few months, we were closed for celebrating the holidays, closed for transitioning our warehouse to a different location, stock issues as much of our replacement stock is stuck overseas from the dock strikes on the west coast, and working with a limited staff. Also, we do not do repairs on keyboard, mice, and much of the product for RMAs, we do full replacements and we apologize about the keycaps as most customers ask or mention these sets when interacting with us through support contact (phone, livechat, tickets). We explain to remove these caps before shipping us the keyboard. If you have not done so, please contact us for an update and we'll look into seeing if we still have your original keyboard where we may help locate those keycaps, as well as looking into what we can do to help resolve this RMA sooner.

You can call us at 888.624.5099 ext 2 or visit our Fanzone for Livechat/Ticket submission links.

Please let us help.

3 out of 5 eggsTactile feel?

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

Pros: Lighting is great, size is great

Cons: I don't know if its just me, but these Cherry MX brown switches feel very similar to membrane switches. I can barely feel the tactile bump at all. Feels just like my membrane keyboard. My roommate has Cherry MX Brown switches and they feel fantastic, but these just feel just like my old membrane keyboard. Do I have to "break in" the keys to get them working like they should? Someone please fill me in on this.

Other Thoughts: I'll give it another week if it is the case in which i need to get the switches a while for them to "break in"

5 out of 5 eggsa great keyboard

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

Pros: white backlight - perfectly matches white leds on cooler master cases such as my n200 and on my dell monitor - who wants to work on a Christmas tree?

great key action for gaming - POUND that spacebar, it is no problem, you can feel that it is an instrument for this purpose, rather than a keyboard which is repurposed as a gaming input device

no wasted space

Cons: I got this for the "TK" numpad design, and it is clever, but in the end, with games with heavy keyboard assignments, like Rigs of Rods, City Car Driving, etc. it is just not working well, and I regret the choice. best would be true "TKL" design with detachable numpad on the right.

why upside-down label on number keys (symbol below number)? why?

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.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Hermes,

I do apologize for the trouble that you've received with your keyboard and we can help rectify this situation as this keyboard is covered under a two year warranty. You will need to RMA the product through our FANZONE. I have provided the link below to our FanZone and an RMA instructional link. I would recommend having your serial number and a photo of your purchase receipt. Register your product and then you can apply for an RMA under MY PRODUCTS. We will approve your request. Once you receive your RMA number, write it clearly on the shipping box to help expedite the process.
