Customer Questions & Answers

Customer Reviews

The keyboard is heavy and feels very solid.
Cuong Truong
The keyboard is not loud; the sound of the keys is actually no louder to me than my MX Black key switches, save the 'click' of the Blues, which I quite like.
Practical Desk
The plastic risers dont have rubber feet, so it slides more easily than I would like.

I moved to this keyboard after using a series of normal rubber-dome type keyboards. I want to give potential buyers an idea of what the experience of using this is, as well as pointing out the things that I do and do not like about this keyboard.

I want this keyboard primarily for improved typing. I also game, but cheap keyboards are more than good enough for my gaming needs. I want something not taxing (no repetitive stress injuries), fast, and accurate. I like a good click and I prefer short travel. I also prefer lower keytops (i.e., less separation between keys). These keys do not have short travel or low profile keys, but I guess you can't have it all.

As of this writing this is the cheapest mechanical keyboard you can buy. At least the cheapest one with Cherry MX keys. Cherry MX dominates the mechanical keyboard switch market, so almost every mechanical keyboard you will find features them. The various colors indicate the type of key used. These are the blue keys, which are the clickiest type (loud) and also probably the most commonly used for typing keyboards (as opposed to gaming keyboards). At the end of the day, the reason to get a mechanical keyboard is to have the mechanical keys. All the other considerations are pretty secondary. So if you are a budget consumer looking to have the mechanical key experience, this is the best keyboard to choose. Provided, of course, that you are interested in the MX blue keys.

The Switches
=======================================================================

The MX blue switches make two distinct sounds as you press a key. At 2mm they make a very high-pitched click. This is also when the key activation signal is sent to the computer.

I had only heard of the company.
I didn't know a company like it could make mice and keyboards.
Now I know. They're really good at it.

This is a mechanical keyboard. MX Blue switches(North America). Other regions may find Brown/Red. It's a mechanical keyboard that has the qualities of other well-known creators. In every sense, they really are bringing a level of quality found in much more expensive keyboards($100-200).

I believe it takes a lot for a company to realize mechanical keyboards like this is in demand. They have a good sense like they've been building for many years.
Ever heard of Leopold Tenkeyless keyboards?
From what I see/ hear this is almost identical- layout and cable management both. Just much cheaper.

My favorites:
+Tenkeyless - sophisticated.
+Cherry Blue switches are easy on your fingers
+Rubber matte coating finish entire top body. Utter joy... my favorite feature (As you can see, the body is grey - that's the rubberized part)
+laser-etched keys of decent touch
+Heavy, overall solid
+Red WASD set! always an awesome option. Also red LEDs on select keys.
+Fn shortcuts with a windows key lock! Wow. Volume control works great as well, use it all the time.
+Detachable, gold-plated mini USB.
+$80 price point?! (Edit: lowest I've seen now is 59.00! Wow...!)

Concerns (minor flaws):
*Few too many CM logos.
*Wish it had more useful Fn shortcuts/macro key capability! The Window key lock was a great idea.
*Red LEDs might be too bright.
*Routing the wire left/right, it really doesn't stay in the channels. Keeps popping out.

Style Name: Red CHERRY MX SwitchesSize Name: Tenkeyless Verified Purchase
After using this keyboard for a day I never want to type on a rubber dome keyboard again. First let me say that I love the mx red switches. Through forums I have read people's opinions on mx reds. Some love them for gaming and typing while others argue mx reds are bad for typing. My opinion is that they are great for both. I tried mx blues for a day. They were ok, but I disliked the click and the force required. I found the tactile feedback somewhat distracting as well. I don't find the mx red switches to be too light as some have stated. In fact I find them perfect. I also like the sound they make; not too loud, and not too quite.

Thoughts on the cooler master quickfire rapid with mx red:

Pros*
-mx red switches.
-Matte black casing looks great (no fingerprints left behind)
-Keyboard has a solid build
-Keyboard uses costar stabilizers
-Excellent feel while typing
-Great for gaming
-Great for typing
-Tenkeyless (space saver)
-Removable usb cable
-Price point compared to Filco keyboards of similar quality

Cons*
-Over branding of CMstorm logos
-Key font is in my opinion ugly (I will buy new key caps when I get a chance)
-Cable braided in stiff ugly nylon (I would prefer fabric braiding like on my mouse)

Minor Cons*
-Came with a squeaky backspace key. However, this is somewhat normal and went away after a couple of hours of use
-Rubber coating over logos is easily scratched off.
-I would prefer to do without the rubber coating.
-I would like rubber feet on the feet extensions like found on Filco keyboards
-Font lettering is slightly raised

Over all considering the price and quality this is a five star product. However, if you want to change the key caps (20-50 dollars more) and dislike the styling I would say it is a four star product.
