Great Keyboard


I wanted to get this in Cherry MX Browns, but when when I saw the blues for a sale at I think $50? I couldn't pass it up. It was a great investment and I love it.

Feels really nice to type ; Compact, Tenkeyless

Sometimes my quick double taps don't register because I didn't depress the key enough to reactivate the switch. That's the design of blues though, and I was already aware of that ; I'm also not a big fan of the clicks, but again, I knew that when buying

Great So far


Owned keyboard for 5 months now, no problems ; Compact, doesn't steal desk area from your mouse ; Heavy, high quality build ; Braided cable is very high quality ; Mechanical, so any switches you break can be individually replaced. (None needed to be...

Mini-usb is used to connect the cord to the keyboard. This means plugging and unplugging a lot will eventually fatigue the relatively fragile solder points. However, for me, the keyboard never moves ; Due to angles, can be a bit awkward to actually...

Owned it for nearly a year


Sometimes I really miss the numbers keys and wish I had direct shortcut keys. It's a great keyboard but it's ideally for road warriors/lan gamers or someone who needs to fit a keyboard on a small space/surface.

Great mechanical keyboard. Cherry MX blues feel awesome to type on and play games on. It's nice to have a compact keyboard to lug around

Cherry MX blues are LOUD, but everyone knows's part of the deal ; WASD keys and some of the left side command keys have faded lettering because i've had my fingers on them constantly, but this has happened to all keyboards i've owned for gaming

Poor Customer Support


Feels nice to type on Cherry Blue MX Switches. Decent build quality and price

Red WASD keycaps fade very easily. Contacted CM support about this and was told they would replace them and send them out within the next few days. It's been over 3 weeks and I haven't even received a tracking number. Very poor and slow service from...

Good for the price I paid


I jumped on this as soon as it was on sale. I needed a tenkey-less mechanical keyboard with PS2 port. This fit all of those requirements. The blue switches are OK, but I think I would prefer reds for gaming. Feels like there is too much distance...

Good value for a mech board ; Minimalist design ; Spare keys for WASD keys ; Would have liked to see a function key on the left side instead of the right side ; On-key lights for capslock, winlock, etc are cool

Spacebar squeaks sometimes ; replacement keys only look right on WASD. What about us ESDF fans?? We don't have to move our fingers for typing

Very Good


This is my first mechanical keyboard and I'm a convert. I don't think I could ever go back to a chiclet style keyboard full time.

Using the key cap puller I changed the keyboard layout from QWERTY to Dvorak and I was pleasantly surprised that typing didn't feel bumpy; however the - and + looked goofy ; The red WASD key caps made a small difference while playing Skyrim ; The...

Body of the keyboard is metallic gray ; F5-F12 are the multimedia keys and the logos used are oversized and unsightly

If you are sensitive to high pitch clicky sound, just wear headphone and listen to something. The clicky sound is not for everyone.

Have the Razer BlackWindow Tourney Stealth (MX Brown) at home and this CM KB at work. I do prefer the MX Blue much more for typing and overall other things, e.g. gaming. When I go home at end of the day and type on my Razer, did make me miss my CM at...

Co-worker did complain about the the high-pitch bottom-out sound. Just ignored them :). The high clicky sound did take couple a days to get used to

Excellent quality for an affordable price


This was my first mechanical keyboard, and it has me wanting more. I enjoy it so much it makes me want to try the other boards in the CM quickfire storm series.

The first quality I noticed unboxing this keyboard was the weight. It felt durable, and the build quality appeared excellent. The included tool to remove keys (as well as the included extra keys) was a welcomes bonus. The logos on the keyboard were not...

The only fault with the keyboard was the cable. It is extremely stiff, and is hard to route in the slots on the bottom of the keyboard. But that is just nitpicky; the keyboard is excellent, and is excellent value

Click clack


I cannot believe it took this long for someone to make a quality, numberpadless-but-otherwise-full size keyboard.

1. Full-size keys ; 2. Standard layout, they just eliminated the number pad ; 3. Standard mini-USB connector on the chassis. Cord's not integrated into the chassis, for easy replacement ; 4. Nice cloth-wrapped USB cable ; 5....

Little on the heavy side, so probably not a great laptop/tablet accessory

Great First Mechanical Keyboard


This is my first mechanical keyboard. I've had it for about 6 months and I absolutely love it. The keyboard is heavy and feels substantial so it doesn't slide around when you use it. I'm a programmer and Cherry Blue switches are amazing for typing...

High quality mechanical keys ; Substantial weight ; Has no number pad

Has no number pad
