1 out of 5 eggsTerribe keyboard

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

Pros: Mechanical keyboard feels great and it does make you type alot faster.

Cons: Broke after 4 months L key stopped working.
Heavy
I missed the num key pad more then i thought

Other Thoughts: The L key just stopped working after 4 MONTHS! I am about to see if i am out of $70 dollars. I actually had to plug in my $20 keyboard that i had been using for 3 years with no issue and guess what it still works. No excuse for a $70 product to go out in 4 months no Excuse

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Emir,

We apologize that you have had trouble when using the Quickfire Rapid. The entire unit is one giant circuit board and sometimes, due to the type of use can weaken the solder points for the keys. This is typical wear and tear on Mechanical keyboards from all companies and brands. Yet, you're not out a keyboard as we do have a two year warranty replacement for our mechanical keyboards. If you can please contact us by phone (888-624-5099) or LiveChat (link Below), we can help to get a replacement for you. I have, also, included our new FANZONE link below where you can register your product and apply for the RMA process. Please let us know how we can help to get this situation rectified for you.

Respectfully,

Robert N.
CM USA Support

1 out of 5 eggsQuality Control

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

Pros: I was extremely excited to receive this keyboard due to the great reviews that it has been given. The build is fantastic, the keys fit your fingers comfortably, and the keyboard seems durable.

Cons: The keyboard was dead on arrival. I have read about some similar occurrences and was willing to take a chance in purchasing it. Immediately after I plugged it into my computer the only keys that seemed to be working were the function and winlock keys. No response from any other key. Both of my computers didn't even seem to recognize the device. If Cooler Master wants to compete with Razer, Filco, or Ducky they are going to need to make some major changes with product assurance.

Manufacturer Response:

Zachary,
I'm very sorry for the troubles with your keyboard on arrival. We do absolutely stand behind our products and would much prefer that you have a working unit than not. If you haven't already taken care of it, we'd be happy to help you get a tested, working replacement via our RMA system. You can start the RMA process through the Registration & eRMA link down below.

If you have any questions, comments, or conerns, please come talk to us directly! We're here to help you out and can be contacted via the methods in the Contact Us link down below :)

Regards,
Kevin with Cooler Master

5 out of 5 eggsGreatest Keyboard I've ever typed on!!

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

Pros: - Love the clicky keys!
- Great feedback
- Compact, definitely gives you room on a desk for other stuff
- Switchable WASD and Windows keys with tool
- Windows Lock Key for gaming
- Great F5-F12 key functions (play, pause, skip, volume, etc.)
- Awesome LEDs for Caps Lock, Windows Lock, and Scroll Lock
- Rubber Matte finish feels great
- Great build quality, durable
- Nice keyboard all together
- Heavy, so it never moves on you

Cons: - No Number Pad
- Can be loud at night if there are others in the same room or a room close by, (MX Blues and Reds)

Other Thoughts: Great keyboard for people looking to buy their first mechanical keyboard at a lower cost. I will say it takes some "getting used to," but it will definitely improve your typing speed by about 10 WPM. I would recommend this to anyone, especially gamers and avid typers! Other than that, there isn't really a lot of cons, just a lot of pros. Hope this review helped you make a choice on a keyboard!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Keyboard for Small Desk

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

Pros: Keys feel great.
Red FPS dummy keys.
Great looks.
N-key rollover with PS/2.

Cons: USB cable can come out. Very rare though.
Finish makes it slightly hard to keep clean.

Other Thoughts: I might buy the full quickfire keyboard if I get a larger desk.

3 out of 5 eggsDefective on Arrival

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

Pros: Honestly, this is a really great keyboard if it works when you get it. If you read around, you'll find that about 25% of these things are defective on arrival. This is one of those products that I hate to love. Enjoy the keyboard if you get a working one; however, don't expect it to work when it gets to your house!

Cons: See above

4 out of 5 eggs

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

Pros: Compact
feels good
everything that is usually good with a mechanical board

Cons: I don't like how the symbols and letters aren't printed or painted on the keys, they are stickers and some of them are already peeling.
My Shift, space, and enter keys are kind of wonky and stick a little bit compared to the letters and numbers
no backlight

Also the quickfire TK went on sale the day after I bought this for even less than this one, that is a board I would have much more preferred

Other Thoughts: Extremely fast shipping and delivery.
It's a decent board, especially for $80

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Keyboard

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

Pros: Great compact keyboard
Red switches are awesome
Easily altered/moded

Cons: none yet

Other Thoughts: Had this keyboard since the spring and I love it.
First Mechanical keyboard from a "gaming" keyboard.
Repainted with white plastic paint and put some different color keys on it.
Feels great typing is smooth and easy to use, planning to get another to use for work/laptop

4 out of 5 eggsNice Keyboard

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

Pros: It's a solid minimalist mechanical keyboard with Cherry switches. At least when I bought mine last year, CM had taken customer feedback into account and removed a lot of the branding.

Cons: While you would think a removable USB cable is a good thing, it's not. I haven't removed my cable more than 10 times in the past year. The cable has nearly worn itself out and is unreliable when connecting my keyboard to my PC. This is the biggest con by far.

5 out of 5 eggsQuickFire Rapid

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

Pros: -ergonomic
-compact design
-very sturdy, well built frame
-cable routing/removable cable
-CherryMX Red switches very fluid to type on with almost zero resistance

Cons: No real cons, still adjusting to the CherryMX Red switches, the keys are so easy to press its almost effortless, makes typing on a keyboard a whole new experience for me.

Other Thoughts: If you are not used to a mechanical keyboard I would suggest going with the CherryMX Black switches.
