5 out of 5 eggsJust what I wanted

Pros: Sturdy and solid feel.
Easy to set up.
Nice grip on bottom and doesn't slide.
Looks nice and key font looks good.

Cons: price?

Other Thoughts: I got this keyboard for work where I do a lot of typing and it has worked great for that.
I wouldn't have bought this one because of the price but the rebate made it a little better.

1 out of 5 eggsHurts my fingers - Did research, everything, found nothing helpful!

Pros: None... Membrane keyboards don't hurt my fingers, but for some reason my fingers get sore when I use this.

Cons: I bought this after hearing all the good things about mechanical keyboards, and I had nothing bad a TERRIBLE experience with mine. Yes, it does work perfectly fine, but I don't understand why my fingers hurt compare to my old logitech $9 membrane keyboard. I looked online about proper keyboarding for your fingers, everything, and i even bought a wrist pad for this thing. Nothing helped... no idea why it happens, because supposely its less pessure to push the buttons down. I'm not the only one though, my brother also tried the keyboard, and instantly he noticed soreness while typing on the keyboard, so it isn't just me. I looked online with other people who had this problem, and they all suggested I was typing the wrong way. Well I been using this logitech keyboard for like 6? years and not one soreness ever happen. I just dont get it.

Other Thoughts: Why does it hurt my fingers? I just don't get it. I tried so many suggested methods to fixing the issue.

Technically, the keyboard keys are super smooth when you go down on them, I really like the feeling of that. It does come with some weight, about 5 lbs. But something about this keyboard hurts my fingers while typing, it might be the fact that its A LOT smaller then a normal keyboard and I'm cramming my fingers together, which causing it pain. Why would they decrease a keyboard size its beyond me!

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent, Excellent Keyboard

Pros: -Build quality is (mostly) astounding
-Feels solid
-No stupid LED backlighting
-Relatively cheap price for red switches
-Holds up well under HEAVY strain

Cons: -Material used to top off the keys wears away very quickly. At first the surface of the keys feels a bit more... abrasive? Within a few weeks of heavy use the keys will become very smooth. Not worth taking a egg off though because it doesn't really matter that much to me, but you will notice a difference in feel after a while.

Other Thoughts: Easily the best keyboard I've ever used. Feels fantastic. Can literally type for days on this. I play games where it's required that I mash several keys thousands of times in a relatively short period, and I've yet to feel even the slightest hint of failure from it. This keyboard can take some punishment for sure.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: Construction is solid and layout is nice and compact. ANSI layout is a pro for me which is why I chose this over the SteelSeries.

True 6KRO. Testing this keyboard vs the other rubber-dome and laptop keyboards I have laying around, the CM Storm Quickfire is the only one that doesn't have blocking problems and reliably tracks 6 keys with roll-over to the next press. Very nice for gaming.

It also comes with a key-puller which is nice if you don't have one.

Cons: The only thing missing from this keyboard I discovered after owning it for two weeks. In trying to use the keyboard more and rely on the mouse less, I found out about the 'menu' key on my other keyboards. When pressed, this key brings up the 'right-mouse' click context menu in many gui applications. However, this keyboard does not include the menu key which is unfortunate.

Other Thoughts: Two neutral remarks:

1) Yes, the Cherry MX Red switches are low force (45n I believe). It is easy to lean over the keyboard and accidentally actuate a key (often the spacebar). But, the light touch is a dream for typing.

2) I'm not a fan of the lettering of the keys, but that is just personal preference; they are easy enough to read. On the other hand, I do like the solid 'red' color underneath the keys. It creates an interesting appearance when looking straight down on the keyboard that really differentiates it from the black 'void' between most rubber dome keyboards.

5 out of 5 eggsMy first mechanical keyboard

Pros: No LED lights!!!! The only reason why I went with coolermaster instead of another brand. Is because MOST mechanical keyboards light up in some form.

Simple design and nothing flashy.

Cherry Red switches

So far really comfortable. Red keys aren't completely silent but it is close enough. It provides enough sound to feel like a quality product.

Cons: I wish Cooler Master offered some of those cool looking keys like Corsair did.... but I would trade off this very simple design to not have the LED lights any day of the week.

Other Thoughts: I wish the num lock, caps lock and scroll lock light came in a different color such as green (which is a normal color that most keyboards and peripherals come in)

I also wish the WASD replacement keys came in a different color or texture. Red is fine, but other brands are making it look really cool and sleek matching more with the keyboard instead of having it a complete different color "Red"

I also don't like the "red" background under the keys of the keyboard. But that is not that much of a big deal because the keys are black and it is hard to see anyways.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Keyboard

Pros: Really great keyboard. It is durable, very responsive, and after over a month of use I still don't see and sign of wear.

Cons: No lights, but that's more of a gimmick, not worth taking an egg off.

The letters and numbers that depict the buttons on the keyboard feel like stickers that you can scratch off at first, but you get use to it and just to be clear, they are NOT STICKERS, which is also not worth taking an egg off.

Other Thoughts: Buy it. For the price, it is well worth it, especially for gaming.

5 out of 5 eggsClackity Clackity

Pros: I'll be writing this for individuals who may have never owned a mechanical keyboard and could be gunshy concerning the price/inexperience anxiety that comes with swapping to a new input type.

I too was rather nervous about laying out $80+ for a keyboard when I felt like my current board was working just fine. Well that nervousness melted away the second I took the CM out of the box. This thing has serious weight to it. The keys are perfectly responsive and sensitive. There is a feeling of control to the inputs that simply isn't there with non-mechanical boards. After typing on a typical bubble board, feeling the keys shudder left/right/up/down with every press I'll be ordering another for office use (though maybe with blue switches).

I'm a gamer, needless to say I'm supremely happy with the product. Every part of this board oozes quality, from the snap-tight adjustable feet, to the USB cord, and of course the inputs themselves.

tl;dr, buy mechanical, you'll be happy

Cons: My only complaint is echoed numerous times in these reviews. My computer is stored to my left and the USB connection on the keyboard is located on the right half of the board. Only a worry for those obsessed with symmetry.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Keyboard

Pros: Great keyboard, I got mine with Red switches since I currently have every other keyswitch. I'm completely satisfied and the keyboard feels amazing. Would recommend for the $70 I got it for.

Cons: No LED Backlight/s

Other Thoughts: Great keyboard, no backlight kinda sucks but I'm willing to compromise.
