QuickFire Ultimate joins CM Storm's popular line of mechanical keyboards as the most potent and complete gaming keyboard of the QuickFire lineup. Like those that came before it, QuickFire Ultimate comes equipped with fully mechanical CHERRY MX keyswitches. Evolving from its predecessor, the QuickFire Pro, Ultimate brings a fully backlit keyset to the table for complete visibility in low-light environments. N-Key Rollover in USB Mode ensures that every keypress is registered, providing faster response times and unlimited simultaneous keystrokes.


Whether for work, school, or gaming, these high quality switches were designed for enhanced comfort while providing a more satisfying typing experience. With a lifespan of up to 50 million keypresses, mechanical switches can outlast most traditional keyboards.

5 out of 5 eggsGlad I Didn't GIve up

Pros: Backlight
Full layout (tkey)

Cons: I still wish the price was a little lower.
F12 key isn't lit when Windows key is disabled (not really a con, just looks weird and wish it was other way around)

Other Thoughts: I went through 3 or so other keyboards (including a cheap CM keyboard that I thought would be good enough) before I decided to stick with this one. I'm glad I didn't settle before, this keyboard has the feel and look I wanted. For someone who writes code all day along with tons of emails, this keyboard feels great. Since I work in a fairly dark room, I wanted a backlit keyboard, but not one that was blinding. The brightness adjustment on this is great, I actually settled on the "breathing" look and love it. Really nothing bad to say about this keybaord. My goal was to find a solid keyboard, that looked good, and felt amazing. I didn't really care about anything extra. This keyboard exceeded everything I wanted.

5 out of 5 eggsNice!

Pros: Nicely built and feels great. Got this for my wife, since she liked the feel of my Corsair K70 with MX blues. This CM keyboard with the same switches actually feels better...not sure how that's possible. Feels like there's slightly less resistance than the same switches in my keyboard. Maybe I'm just crazy.

Cons: She's had no complaints. I kind of like the dedicated volume "wheel" on my K70, but I don't think she cares about that kind of thing.

Other Thoughts: I have keyboard envy now. Of course.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very bright, especially at night. The keyboard is very robust and has a very clean look. It's heavy and won't move when typing.

Cons: The "J" and "8" keys seem to be slightly malfunctioning. The click cannot be heard and it has a slightly weird sensation to it compared to the other keys. I bought the blue switches mainly for the clicky sound so it's a little disappointing.

Not worth removing an egg since most keyboard are probably all like that.

Other Thoughts: Oily fingers will leave dark spot on the keys.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Keyboard

Pros: This keyboard offers amazing feedback (just like all of the Cherry switches) and feels incredible to both game and type on. The limiting factor is really only noise. If you are on the fence because people are saying that the blues can't be used for gaming, only typing they are wrong. It really just depends on how much noise you are willing to tolerate. This keyboard, is not too loud at all. With a pair of closed headphones the sound is barely audible and not at all distracting.

Cons: I have to say I love everything about this keyboard. I don't ever use macros, so that wasn't an issue for me, but if you are looking for a keyboard for macros, this isn't your best bet, as this isn't an option, although I prefer that, because I don't want features I will never use to clutter up valuable desk space.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking into purchasing a Cherry MX Blue keyboard for pretty much every task, then this is the keyboard to buy. The layout is nice and spacious, and the thing is solid and heavy enough to be used as a defensive weapon.

5 out of 5 eggsQuickfire ultimate with blue switch

Pros: - Cherry mx blue switches
- Solid construction
- Steel plate to reinforce i'm pretty certain you can use this as a weapon in a pinch.
- did i mention mx blues? clicky clicky!
- Backlighting is beyond awesome.
- Improved my typing significantly.

Didn't think i'd like mechanicals, as i love the flat chiclet keyboards but there are no good ones. Glad i switched.

Cons: To say something wrong about this keyboard is to dislike everything you can wish for in a keyboard.

Other Thoughts: But this! Switching to mechanical was seriously the best decision i have made so far.

5 out of 5 eggsLove it, 100%

Pros: Very sturdy, well built, should last me years
Good backlight, even highlights wasd keys for late night gaming.
responsive keys, best feel from typing I ever got.

Cons: Everyone within a fifteen foot radius is going to know you're typing, not so much a con for me, but could be for you.

The stands could also have put it at a higher angle, but this is nit picking.

Other Thoughts: Genuinely impressed with this. Only thing in my last purchase I 100% love.

5 out of 5 eggsI like it!

Pros: -Very bright blue backlight with blue backplate
-Nice design layout
-Very solid

Cons: -Price

Other Thoughts: I've never had a mechanical keyboard test prior to purchasing this keyboard. The feedback feels alot like my previous membrane keyboard with a clicky sound instead of a clacky sound. Many people who have never tried blue switches should at least hear how they sound before making the purchase since different people have different sound tolerance and sensitivity.

Many things such as the gold-plated USB, reroutable cable, function keys, firm rubber stoppers to hold the keyboard on place and NKRO over USB should come standard nowadays so they price is kind of debatable. When looking at the description of the keyboard you should know what you are buying such as the key switches and layout if it has any macro keys in which it doesn't (I'm aware of that but really do not prefer macro keys. I like this keyboard the way it is.)

The keyboard is very solid and is bright to my liking especially due to the blue backplate it has. The keyboard does not in fact look very generic it has some neat designs over above the number keys and around the keyboard.

At the moment I can't seem to work my NKRO over USB though I'm unsure why. For the price I believe that $110 doesn't really justify the price in my opinion, I believe it should be around $80-90 for it to be a killer bargain.

5 out of 5 eggsNiccccceee

Pros: no driver hassle, plug and go to my surprise. love the clicky sounds if your into that. Its a cooler master so it's thick and durable. I feel confident this thing will out live my dog.

Cons: i was expecting a little more illumination but it's really bright enough as it is.

Other Thoughts: after doing some research i have found these are more likely to last longer the razor products. no macros but i knew that buying it. it

5 out of 5 eggsGreat mech. keyboard!

Pros: This is my first mechanical keyboard and wow. the mx blues provide glorious clicky clicky sounds, and the typing is far better. I recently hooked the old membrane keyboard up to a server of mine and was absolutely displeased with how much resistance there was on pressing keys after using my mechanical keyboard.

the keyboard fees natural, my hands don't get as exhausted during the work day as well. its an excellent, simple keyboard with minimal features while being built like a rock.

Cons: no cons.
