CM Storm Quickfire Rapid Keyboard


Space saving design, Haptic feedback helps increase typing speed, 2 year warrenty, Full NKRO with included PS/2 adapter

Loud key actuations, Quite basic for its $80 asking price, No number pad

Performance of a keyboard is about being able to quickly and accurately type and game at all times. Thankfully, because of the fantastic Cherry MX Blue switches accuracy is not a problem that the QuickFire Rapid suffers from. When the QuickFire Rapid...

Excellent tactile feel for gaming and general usage; lights built into Caps Lock, F9 and Scroll Lock keys.

Not the most ergonomic friendly keyboard; no macro management features.

Awesome Keyboard


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.

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...

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...

Good first impression


The cons are more nitpicks than flaws. I researched my purchase, I am not a gamer. The keyboard is set for continual lighting at its lowest setting and it's working very well. I chose this model to replace a Das Keyboard Model S (original) which is...

Solid build Good lighting

Mini USB connector - not very solid by nature and in my case, the cable is strung in the opposite direction of the angled connector Shift, return and backspace keys do no have the same clickiness as do the letter keys No USB pass-thru

CMStorm Quickfire Rapid - Brown


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...

*Reasons to Buy mechanical quiet actuation durable cherry MX switches

*Reasons to Pass newer version available for only slightly more

Very poor durability.


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...

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

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