Cooler Master Storm QuickFire TK Blue Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

 

Well, it is finally summer. I have to say I have been waiting for quite some time now. Summer is one of the few seasons here in Vancouver where it does not rain just about every day, and that is a good thing. Too bad most of the time I am now stuck at...

Overall good keyboard

 

Overall, I'd give it a 4/5 rating because of the weird layout configuration. I regret getting this over just a normal tenkeyless design. I also thought that it would have came with white backlighting, but it turns out that the switch type determines...

Cherry MX Blues ; Backlighting is VERY BRIGHT ; Compact ; Windows Key Lock ; DETACHABLE (BRAIDED) CABLE ; Solid build quality, doesn't flex much at all

The numpad/arrow key layout is very hard to get used to. I've owned this for a month now and with daily use am still getting confused on how to use it sometimes due to the fact that it can be tough to distinguish when backlighting is on ; The NUMLOCK,...

Had To RMA

 

If did not have to RMA the product due to the 2 errors then it would be a five star product. I normally do not review a product after only 3 hours of use. But from what i have experienced. It is a vary nice, Small, Clicky and sexy product. It is worth...

Well made construction ; Well lite back light with option to change brightness ; Nice small gives space on desk ; Sexy sounding clicky cherry mx blues

Had to RMA due to the "A" key not clicking or having a tactical feel ; On the num pad the 2 key's LED was placed upside down witch made it so you cant see the led light illuminate it

Great mechanical keyboard

 

Very solid mechanical keyboard ; Has survived several liquid spills . (when dried) ; I even spilled juice on part of the switches which gunked them up . This was easily fixed by putting drops of iso alchol into the switch mechanism and then clicking...

the red lights are worthless

A solid mechanical keyboard.

Keys feel nice, keyboard is compact and has nice features. Lighting options are good

It's a little less comfortable to use than some other keyboards

Cherry MX Red switches are super sensitive. Took me by surprise.

Built well. Sturdy. Nice bright LED

Cooler Master SGK-4020-GKCL1-US

 

Bought another with quiet MX Brown switches last year... that's better for nighttime & conference calls. Blue is nice and crisp, pretty similar to my ancient Northgate Omnikey. I like both.

Crisp, compact, solid. Backlit. No other frills, no problems ; The combined arrows/numpad hasn't been a problem for me, even in spreadsheets (I just use enter/tab/mouse to move.)

Getting into BIOS setup can be tricky if you have to turn off Numlock and hit Delete in a 1-second window, so keep a regular keyboard around and/or disable Numlock at boot in BIOS

Good keyboard

 

Cherry mx blue switches, good build quality, the cable is braided and it is really good to type on

i have only had this keyboard for a month and 3 of the keys have quit clicking and it is not my fault. I would still recommend this keyboard because i think i just got unlucky

Best keyboard i've ever had

 

My first two mechanical keyboards were blue switches. I didn't mind the noise and thought I liked the slightly harder to actuate keys. Getting this keyboard has introduced me to how wonderful red switches are ; The keys are a breeze to press, it feels...

Only downside for me was the unintuitive and not explained FN lock system. I had to google how the heck to press the F1-12 keys instead of their shortcut functions
