A Comprehensive Review from a Pro Gamer.

CM Storm QuickFire Rapid - Compact Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with CHERRY MX Red Switches
CM Storm QuickFire Rapid - Compact Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with CHERRY MX Red Switches

Pros: Basically this keyboard is designed for one thing in mind. Tournaments. That is why the USB cable is detachable and there is no num-pad. This things sole purpose is for gaming. If you want a typing keyboard go buy a DAS. That being said let me say, if you are in the e-Sports scene or hope to take part in it and need a keyboard that is designed to give you a better grip and angle on your mouse, this is the keyboard for you. This is one of the only if not THE ONLY keyboard aside from the Filco 10keyless that removes the numpad, is mechanical, and gives you the option of red/brown/blue MX cherry switches. The keyboard has 1.25 scaled keys to eliminate "wobbling" that other keyboards that use larger scales have. The keycaps are laser-etched and the braided cable is strong enough to be used as a makeshift rope. The keys are all extremely tactile and responsive the spacebar does not wobble or feel unsteady, and this thing is pretty heavy for its size so it doesn't slide.

Cons: There are none. Although some people have reported that the detachable USB cable sometimes has connectivity issues.

Overall Review: It should be noted that the Caps-Lock/Scroll-Lock/Windows Disable Key are all RED LED's. So if you have a machine that has Red-Colored LED's than this keyboard will match. It should be also noted that the spacing on this keyboard is quite good, it's almost impossible to fat-finger keys. I own several mechanical gaming keyboards and this one is by far my favorite for FPS's and playing osu! because of how much it affects your mouse positioning. I love it.
