Unkillable.

Pros: I have had this keyboard since mid 2012 it is in perfect condition still with heavy use. Around 20k games of starcraft 2k hours of CS: GO and every other game. 10/10 I will frame this keyboard if it ever breaks..

Cons: I have wanted to get another keyboard since the blue switches was the first mechanical keyboard I have gotten and didn't know how loud it would be but this keyboard is showing no signs of death.

Excellent

Pros: Its a really good compact keyboard which i was looking for. I dont need the numpad, so its great. NO problems so far. Very sturdy board.

Cons: No back lighting. Which is fine as i use a well lit room to play games in.

Other Thoughts: This is my second Mechanical keyboard from coolermaster, both had really good contruction and worked well. I would say if you dont NEED backlighting save yourself 30+ dollars and get this one. It works fine. I play heroes of the storm mostly, so i dont need any macro buttons.

Dead keys, useless board

Pros: None. It doesn't work,

Cons: Dead keys
Ability to work as a keyboard

Other Thoughts: Certain keys just stopped working. Mine has brown switches, but is otherwise pretty much identical to this one. Cooler Master sends out tons of keyboards with bad soldering. A little research with the words in the last sentence will find a lot of complaints.

CM QUICKFIRE STORM Rapid

Pros: Pretty study Keyboard; heavier than most keyboards I use
Love the sound of the Cherry MX Blues
Plastic grip at the bottom is very helpful so the keyboard doesn't slip around
Fast delivery time

Cons: None yet, and I hope that it stays that way :)

Would've liked the CM to include backlight, but alas you can't get everything in life.
