Pros: + Cherry Blue keys (just like a razer blackwidow)
+ Excellent quality and build across the ENTIRE keyboard.
+ USB cable is a detachable mini USB cable.
+ Small size keyboard with standard layout.
Cons: - mini usb connect maybe a little difficult to plug in sometimes.
- lots of CM storm logos but you forget about this when you actually use the keyboard after awhile.
- Tenkeyless (no number pad) justified by the lower than average price.
Overall Review: Excellent road warrior keyboard.
The quality of this keyboard is similar to Thermal take keyboards which I find to be one of the best in terms of quality and build.
I have to say the Quickfire Rapid earns a very solid build and has brought my confidence in CM Storm products even higher and deserve extra consideration from now on.
Pros: + Cherry Reds have good feeling one of the best MX reds
+ Multimedia Buttons/Volume Rockers
Cons: - Wrist Rest is useless
- Ink on keys fading
- Not fully mechanical (for gamers: I miss cancels an extractor in sc2 when hitting the esc button)
Overall Review: This keyboard so close to being the best. I feel the cost to make certain parts of the keyboard should've been devoted somewhere else such as taking away the wrist rest and the contoured keys to make the keyboard fully mechanical.
