Disclaimer: I bought the brown switch keyboard from newegg; for some reason, Amazon won't ship it to APO--even though they shipped the blue switch TK here no problem.

I work 12 hours a day, 7 days a week in Afghanistan as chief engineer on a large software project. I don't game a helluva lot, so I'm looking at these keyboards as a professional typist...you know, of sorts. Between coding and PM documentation stuff, I spend something like 80% of my waking hours with my hands on a keyboard. I've been here for a year and a half, but for some reason investing in a keyboard that's worth a damn never once occurred to me until the last two weeks or so, when my second bog-standard dell chiclet keyboard crapped itself.

After researching the Cherry keys for a few days, I decided it would have to be between the Cherry Blues or Cherry Browns. I bought one of each, with the intention of buying a matching keyboard to whichever I preferred. It's been four days now, and I still have no idea which keyset--or even keyboard--I prefer. Let me explain the bit about "which keyboard": Amazon won't ship the QuickFire Rapid--my first choice--out here, but they shipped the QuickFire TK no problem. I always prefer ordering from Amazon, so I bought the TK with Cherry Blues first. It got here, and I loved it, but I'm not a huge fan of things lit and there are a few other minor annoyances I have with the board. So after about a week with it, I went ahead and bought the QuickFire Rapid with Cherry Browns from newegg. I'm going to review the keyboards and the switches here.

To be perfectly honest, these are both very good keyboards and I doubt anyone would be unhappy with either.

Size: SmallColor: Rapid-I Blue Verified Purchase
There's a lot to like about this mechanical keyboard, but unfortunately a rather severe bug makes it difficult to recommend.

Pros:
- Choice of MX Blue or Browns, and the switches themselves feel well done. If you know what Cherry MX switches feel like, you won't be disappointed. I bought the blues version.
- Tenkeyless layout, which I prefer for ergo reasons.
- Backlit! This plus the tenkeyless already makes it a rare beast with not a whole lot of competition. There are a few different backlight modes available, most of which I found silly. The standard backlight on/off with 5 varying levels of brightness suited me just fine.
- Build quality was pretty good. The casing has a slight rubberized coating to it. Not as ostentatious as some other keyboards with regard to weird looking logos, even compared to other CM Storm keyboards.

Cons:
- Right angled USB plug on the cable is stupid. If you're a right-handed mouse user (as I imagine most people are), the angle of the cable plug means the cable is going to intrude on your mouse area. I don't know why someone thought this was a good idea. Thankfully the cable is removable and micro USB, so if you get this keyboard buy a cheap straight-plug micro USB cable.
- Firmware updates are distributed as windows EXEs only. Mac/Linux users will need to find a PC friend to update for them.
- The key font is not great looking. I know this is marketed as a gaming keyboard, but still. The rest of the keyboard is so reserved, it's a little odd to see something like the Titanfall font every time I look at it. To be fair, compared to some other gaming keyboards I'd still prefer this font.

Hello SF CA "Mr Pink"

For your cons, a lot of debate was going back and forth concerning the orientation and style of the plug. Complaints were made for the left orientation, right orientation, and even it being a microUSB plug. Each has their own positives and negatives. Having it go to the left, clears up that mouse space which you've mentioned. Yet, having it go to the right will go and keep consistent cable management. At this point and time, if you're not a fan of angled connector, there are third party options to purchase an inexpensive microUSB replacement.

For the firmware updates, all of our keyboards and mice are designed primarily for Windows based computer systems. Linux users will need to use alternative methods such as Wine, but that is no guarantee. Mac users will need to run BootCamp or Parrallels to boot up a legit copy of windows on their machine, if not using another computer.

As far as for the delay/"sleep" problems, if you are experiencing this issue, we implore and greatly appreciate if you can comment on that active thread with your detailed specs on your system(s). The more information we can garner from users the closer we can get to resolving this issue.

Overall I like the feel of this product (probably a great compact mechanical keyboard for Windows users), but there are some issues to be aware about when using this with a Mac.

It (mostly) works with OS X (tested with Mountain Lion, version 10.8.2). You can switch the windows (command) key and alt key locations in System Preferences, but you can't switch the keys like with the CM Storm QuickFire Rapid as they aren't the same size.

Switching between arrow keys and numpad modes:

- The numpad does not work. Pressing NUMLK has no effect. So the keyboard is stuck in the arrow key mode with PGUP, PGDOWN, HOME, END, etc. That kind of defeats the purpose of getting this keyboard and makes the CM Storm QuickFire Rapid a better buy if you don't need backlighting. There may be a workaround for this, but support did not know of one (they also said the media keys would not work which is only partially true, see below.)

Media key compatibility:

- The volume keys work
- The play/pause button works
- The stop button does not work (though play/pause kind of covers this and Apple keyboards don't have a stop key anyway)
- The prev/next buttons worked in iTunes and VLC but not Spotify. Not sure what that's about.

More key compatibility:

- PRTSC works as F13.
- SCRLK works as F14.
- PAUSE works as F15.
- There is no enter key. On Apple keyboards, FN+return works as enter. Apple keyboards with a numpad can also press the enter key there.
