5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Keyboard

This review is from: CM Storm QuickFire Rapid - Compact Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with CHERRY MX Brown Switches

Pros: I have had this keyboard for about 6 months now and I have loved every second of using it. It feels amazing (I have the brown switches) and typing sounds pleasing. Gaming has been a dream with N-key rollover, also the small actuation force, and quick actuation time has saved my life in games more than a couple times. This keyboard is a dream and the size means it takes up less valuable space that I need on my desk.

Cons: Of course it is weird not having the number pad in some games, however that was something you get this keyboard for, no keypad. There is the Quickfire TK for anyone who needs a number pad, however after a little bit you get used to not having them and it doesn't really affect me except for when I play Gary's Mod.

Other Thoughts: This keyboard is awesome and has made me look forwards for having to type of school reports or essays. Just typing this review is an awesome experience. I have no regrets about getting this computer.

3 out of 5 eggsCMStorm Quickfire Rapid - Brown

This review is from: CM Storm QuickFire Rapid - Compact Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with CHERRY MX Brown Switches

Pros: *Reasons to Buy
mechanical
quiet actuation
durable
cherry MX switches

Cons: *Reasons to Pass
newer version available for only slightly more

Other Thoughts: It's a great keyboard for those transitioning from membrane or chiclet keyboards. The cherry mx brown's have a good balance between feedback and quietness, with it only making sound when you bottom out. This keyboard is really good! But the successor to this keyboard is probably even better, with only a marginally higher cost. If you really need a keyboard, this'll do great, but if you have a tiny bit more cash laying around, go for an upgrade.

2 out of 5 eggsVery poor durability.

This review is from: CM Storm QuickFire Rapid - Compact Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with CHERRY MX Brown Switches

Pros: Very nice when new. Win-key disable is a nice function.

Cons: Certain keys have stopped responding to fast input, such as the 4 key, 9 key, and ' key.

Other Thoughts: This is a great keyboard at first. I gave it a 5-star rating a year ago. But with multiple keys now not responding to fast input, I have never had a keyboard begin to malfunction so quickly. One year is completely unacceptable at this price. I have never traveled with this keyboard. It has remained in one spot, with only normal typing usage, and it is clean.

3 out of 5 eggsDuplicate keys after 6 months

This review is from: CM Storm QuickFire Rapid - Compact Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with CHERRY MX Brown Switches

Pros: Feels like quality construction, good size and weight. Just feels right.

Cons: After about 6 months of light use, I'm not getting some really annoying duplicate key inputs. About 20% of the time I try to use the C key, it sends it twice. A few other keys are starting to do the same. I've tried cleaning it with rubbing alcohol and it hasn't helped in the slightest. This seems like a common problem with this keyboard.

Other Thoughts: If it weren't for the duplicate key issue, it would be a great keyboard.

5 out of 5 eggsThis keyboard is awesome!

This review is from: CM Storm QuickFire Rapid - Compact Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with CHERRY MX Brown Switches

Pros: Solid build, great price, quality keyboard.

Cons: Keycaps are printed I think? I can feel the bumps for the letters.

Other Thoughts: This is my first mechanical keyboard experience and I am extremely happy with this keyboard! It is a joy to type on and I am very happy with the quality of the keyboard. It feels solidly constructed and durable. I'm not a gamer but I will enjoy typing on this keyboard!

1 out of 5 eggsA great keyboard. But a Dysfunctional Connection.

This review is from: CM Storm QuickFire Rapid - Compact Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with CHERRY MX Brown Switches

Pros: Great Keyboard when it works!

Cons: This Keyboard has been giving me considerable issues in regards to keeping it connected to my PC, in the interest of trying to fix it I purchased a new mini USB cable, and while that seemingly helped for a while the issue has been coming back. I have to re-plug it each time this happens, and the mini USB area on the keyboard is hard to reach, so I spend a ton of time messing around with the mini part of the connection, wasting a good amount of time on something I should not have to use time on.

It is just me getting one of the keyboards that does not work correctly out of the box, and while it is a great keyboard, I am going to rate it based on what I have gotten which is a product that is not working as intended. Which means one egg. If yours works I would give it a 4 or maybe a 5.

I will have to google and find numbers for support....

Manufacturer Response:

Good Morning Valued Customer,

Can you make sure the USB cables are firmly in place on both ends and test the keyboard and/ or mouse on another USB that is not a USB hub as well as another computer. Does it work in BIOS? Does it work in Windows SAFEMODE? If all else fails you can register your product on our Fanzone for an RMA Request along with your invoice and serial number at the following link.

Regards,
Felinni M.

1 out of 5 eggsKeys activate before tactile point

This review is from: CM Storm QuickFire Rapid - Compact Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with CHERRY MX Brown Switches

Pros: Nothing that can overcome the fatal flaw.

Cons: As a long-time mechanical keyboard user, it didn't take long to notice a fatal flaw - the keys actually activate before the tactile point.

What is the point of a mechanical switch with a tactile point if the keyboard registers without giving feedback? So disappointed by this product.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Eric,

I'm sorry that you feel there is this issue with your keyboard. If this is only affecting a few keys, it may be an issue with those individual keys. Also, this is a RED switch keyboard where it may take time to learn the actuation point on this particular model as well as I am not familiar with the previous switchtypes or keyboards you've used before. I have gone and linked our article which goes indepth of each of our switchtypes for reference. If you have any other questions, comments, or issues, please let us know by visiting our Fanzone to livechat and ticket links or call us directly at 888.624.5099.

Respectfully,

Robert N.

5 out of 5 eggsfirst mechanical keyboard

This review is from: CM Storm QuickFire Rapid - Compact Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with CHERRY MX Brown Switches

Pros: Brown switches feel great, not too loud and annoying like blue switches.

Comes with red WASD keys, makes it easy to find them when the lights are down.

Cons: no 10key numpad, but i dont use that much anyways.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Quality, Reasonable Price

This review is from: CM Storm QuickFire Rapid - Compact Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with CHERRY MX Brown Switches

Pros: Easily the most cost-effective cherry brown keyboard I've owned.

Cons: I miss my numpad.

Other Thoughts: In this day and age where everyone is falling over each other to build a more expensive back-lit keyboard with 1000 extra buttons and features you're never going to want or use this keyboard is a breath of fresh air. It's a cheap, durable, and responsive deck of brown switches you won't regret buying... just don't forget to check whether or not you really want to give up your numpad.
