3 out of 5 eggsWorks OK, but lacks quality.

This review is from: CM Storm QuickFire Ultimate - Full Size Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with CHERRY MX Blue Switches and Fully Blue LED Backlit

Pros: - Solid keyboard; good weight and feet so it stays put.
- Nice and clicky as a mechanical keyboard should be.
- Readable with backlight off.
- Sits relatively high with the feet extended, somewhat like an old school IBM keyboard.
- Windows keys can be disabled with FN + F12.

Cons: - Didn't come with directions for how to work the backlight and such; had to google them.
- The backlight is composed of single LED's in each key, which don't fully light keys with multiple symbols.
- The switch/LED for the F12 key on mine came mounted upside down! Not sure if I can fix that on my own or not.
- Wish it had a wrist rest.

Other Thoughts: If I had been able to see this product in person in a store, I would not have bought it. It fulfills the basic functions of a keyboard well enough, but the cons show a lack of attention to detail by the manufacturer. I will keep it for now because it's better than my old keyboard, but will most likely replace it in the relatively near future with a different, higher quality brand. 3/5 for being basically good, but short on QA.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid value for the price

This review is from: CM Storm QuickFire Ultimate - Full Size Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with CHERRY MX Blue Switches and Fully Blue LED Backlit

Pros: It seems quite durable and has a good weight to it.
Keys seem responsive and sound just as MX Blues are supposed to. Haven't noticed any weardown on the keys surfaces or switches.
Cord is something like 4-6 feet which is great. My previous cheapo keyboard had a hard time reaching through my desk setup.
LED configuration works well, there's a good amount of control over the brightness. There are very few fully backlit keyboards in this price range.

Cons: Manual is basically useless--the only instructions on mine were in Italian, everything else was just feature descriptions. It almost doesn't matter, though--you'll have to mess around a bit to figure out the LED controls and everything else is self-explanatory. I ran a search and it looks like the CM website has a video with explanations though.

Other Thoughts: It's a solid keyboard at an excellent price point. Most competitor keyboards with full LED were 10-20 USD more expensive at the time of purchase, and the non-LED version from CM (the Quickfire XT) is only about 5 USD cheaper.

I've had it about 9 months now (I'm using it to type this review, in fact) and been completely satisfied the whole time. In fact, when it went on sale in December I bought another one to use at work. I primarily use it for typing--although I do play games with it, that's not the reason I purchased it.

1 out of 5 eggsWorked good for the time being, just until this week.

This review is from: CM Storm QuickFire Ultimate - Full Size Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with CHERRY MX Blue Switches and Fully Blue LED Backlit

Pros: It was defiantly an upgrade from a k120. the keys had a nice response and i have always had some appreciation for cooler master.

Cons: Well it stopped working, it shuts my computer off before it even boots up and cause all kinds of issues. also you cannot type once you can get it to boot up, so i guess it will just look pretty while my Logitech k120 does a better job.

Other Thoughts: Cant say i will be looking at cooler master product for a while.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Keyboard

This review is from: CM Storm QuickFire Ultimate - Full Size Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with CHERRY MX Blue Switches and Fully Blue LED Backlit

Pros: -Nice and solid build quality.
-The keys are so much fun to press.
-The price was very reasonable compared to other mechanical gaming keyboards out there.

Cons: -A bit heavy due to the steel plate. Some might see this as a pro, not really a big deal.
-Some of FN the settings are a bit confusing and some I think aren't even mentioned in the manual.
-The LED backlight has some white noise when not at max brightness. Not sure if it goes away after a few seconds since I usually stick with the max brightness. Might be an issue specific to mine.

Other Thoughts: Had no idea what the difference was between the Cherry MX switches until after I bought the blue. Even so it's a lot of fun to type with and I'm sure it will be fine for gaming. Every CoolerMaster product I own has been great. I'll continue to purchase more from them in the future.

5 out of 5 eggsInexpensive, works great

This review is from: CM Storm QuickFire Ultimate - Full Size Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with CHERRY MX Blue Switches and Fully Blue LED Backlit

Pros: Not too pricey, it's mechanical.
In this case, I bought it for a friend. I just asked him about it today to let me know how it was working.
He is very happy with it. It's worked flawless except for one problem which I'll list below.

Cons: It uses a mini or micro plug to plug the cord into the underside of the key board. Now, at least it is somewhat protected under there and not just hanging off the back, but my friend is using this keyboard still had it unplug on him there once.
When you route the cable under the keyboard, you have to be careful to not bend the wire to sharp at the plug. This can put unnecessary strain on it. I still gave it 5 stars because it didn't actually fail, it pretty much worked like intended.
