CM STORM QUICKFIRE ULTIMATE

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.

FULLY MECHANICAL CHERRY MX KEYSWITCHES

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 eggsCM Storm Quickfire Ultimate

Pros: This was my first mechanical keyboard, and I will never go back to mushy rubber tops on PCB's again. I have had this keyboard for over a year and am still amazed at how it feels (especially after spending a day on my laptop keyboard at work)

I was prompted to write this review because I recently spilled a drink on my keyboard. I removed the keycaps, and the PCB with switches from its housing, rinsed it off with water (for stickiness) and plugged it back in the next day after letting it dry overnight. It worked perfectly. I am blown away by the quality of this device.

The backlighting is beautiful, have not had a single LED fail on my to date.

The spacebar retention is great, it handles my button mashing like a champ, and I rarely press in the center.

Cons: This keyboard IS LOUD. There are quieter Cherry MX switches out there (reds/blacks/browns). I bought Blues because I love the sound when you bottom them out, and the feel of the switch, but if you're looking for a quiet keyboard, look elsewhere. My fiance has learned to deal with it.

I wish they had a volume scroll wheel, instead of mashing FN+F10/F11. Also, not sure how it would have fit, but I would have liked an FN button on the left side as well. Give me these, and you've got a perfect keyboard CoolerMaster.

Other Thoughts: Well worth the money. My use has been casual gaming and work.

3 out of 5 eggsGood but...

Pros: I love this keyboard. I have had a few mechanical boards in my lifetime but there always seemed to be something fairly significant wrong with them. I as a little hesitant to buy another one but I finally decided to give it a go and thus far I have not been disappointed (see cons). You can purchase this with confidence.

Cons: I have just barely had this keyboard for a month and despite how much I love it I am a bit disappointed that a couple of the keys have already quit lighting up. I know how much of a gamble it can be with these things but barely 30 days just seems to be a punch in the nose per say. The only reason this review is a 3 and not a 5 is because of the early exit of a couple of the lights.

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice

Pros: Back lighting is great, very responsive keys, easy to get used to, windows key lock is essential to anyone who games, keys have a good feel to them.

Cons: The only real con I can come up with would be that it is a bit high even without using the feet. A wrist rest would have been nice for the slight elevation reducing some strain. I think this is mostly due to my desk set-up as it has a keyboard tray that is lower.

Other Thoughts: As I said it is a bit high, mostly due to my setup. If you are in the market for a mech keyboard, I would highly reccomend this board.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat investment for the avid gamer

Pros: The keyboard itself is very sturdy, since it virtually doesn't flex if you move the sides.

Cherry MX blue switches are versatile in multiple purposes other than gaming. The overall quality is very fast and responsive for many types of games from MMO's to First person shooters.

I find that the layout is nice and simple, yet looks nice and stylish. The LED lighting does help out when playing in the dark since the brightness can light up the area very well.

Other features I enjoy include the N Key Rollover, the option to lock the windows button (Which helps a lot).

Cons: Only a few cons on the keyboard. It would have been nice to see some other options in the lighting options such as integrating custom profiles for different games. It only utilizes either all keys being fully lit, breathing or the WASD and arrow keys being lit. Though for this price range, it's somewhat expected.

It can get a little bit tiring after a while since there is no arm rests, but that can be easily solved with an optional arm rest on the side.

Other Thoughts: All in all, I'm happy with this purchase, as it's a good investment for an avid gamer on a budget. And for other keyboards around the same price range, I feel it holds a better value compared to a Razer Blackwidow (standard model) or anything similar.

3 out of 5 eggsJust Another Mechanical Keyboard..

Pros: I am an avid computer gamer and web developer, I finger bang this keyboard for ~10 hours a day.
It's easy to complement this keyboard on a solid frame and keys, just as any mechanical keyboard should.

Cons: Although this keyboard is a sturdy plastic monolith, it is seriously lacking in functionality.
The board doesn't come with a manual, which makes sense because its supposed to be universal, but this also leaves some of its functions up to the imagination. (notably the timing buttons on the numberpad) Moreover, the online manual doesn't cover it either.
The most frustrating thing about this keyboard is the function-lock key. You cannot use the function keys when the FN key is on (It usually is). It also takes 3 seconds to turn on and off.
This means that switching between actual function keys and keyboard macros becomes a unnecessary chore.
Huge oversight.

Other Thoughts: Aside from being a mechanical keyboard, the Quickfire Ultimate is disappointing. It modeled the traditional keyboard design that's been around for decades and then the designers made it just a little less functional and a little more annoying.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat mechanical keyboard

Pros: Very tactile, the font is a bit tacky for some people, but I personally am fine with it.

5 backlight brightness options

"Gaming" mode

Keycap puller for easier cleaning

Cons: LED's underneath the spacebar leak when you slouch, easily fixed by putting a blue piece of paper or postit underneath.

Down arrow key got mushy after a week of usage, was told mechanical keys don't get mushy, but it feels off as compared with the other keys ...

Spacebar stabilizer broke off by just simply pressing it, bleh, simply buy another pair online for around $0.50 and you're golden.

Other Thoughts: Everything works as advertised, with some minor drawbacks.

5 out of 5 eggsGlad I Didn't GIve up

Pros: Backlight
feel
weight
everything
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.
