CM Storm Quick Fire Pro Mechanical Keyboard Review

  4. 6KRO/NKRO testing and User Experience
  5. Conclusion

The guys from Coolermaster India have sent a Quick Fire Pro with Cherry Black keys for evaluation- a full-sized keyboard with partial lighting and the goodness that CM Storm’s Quick Fire Rapid has.

Things will be pretty interesting to see how good this keyboard is. As of now, I’ve tested few mechanical gaming keyboards- Razer’s Ultimate stealth elite edition (or was it Ultimate Stealth edition Elite?), Red and Black key version of Quick Fire Rapid.

To recap what I’ve said about Quick Fire Rapid with Cherry Black keys:

While these keys are great for gaming because of much stronger bump/feedback resistance/ “feel heavier” compared to others (Red, Blue and Brown), my fingers were tired when I started typing these. The squeak on some keys I’ve mentioned above made it more unpleasant.

I would like to really like if I don’t see this happening on this board, but an impression was made that it’s not going to happen.

    its weird that cm didn’t see that cable folding when they designed this board. thats why i prefer plastic insulation over threaded wrapping because eventually the threads come out. plastic on the other hand protects the cable properly even if you bend it hard. i hope the cable is also covered under warranty as some companies do not do that. but why have a removable cable in the first place?

    i think steelseries are the first guys to do full NKRO support via USB, not completely sure though. but one of the reviewers in another site said that microsoft released some update that lets you use NKRO via USB which didn’t make sense. any clarification on that part?

  2. why would anyone pick such an expensive keyboard? okay so the keys develop a shine, but to be honest i don’t see the point not to choose something like tvs gold.

  3. arey have you pressed the keys asx together and see if it works? if not then that is your answer. think logically. sidewinder x6 costs 2 thousand and a membrane keyboard steelseries merc itself costs 3k+, so considering all that this will actually cost 5 thousand since the price listed above if 6 thousand 5 hundred. tvs gold doenst even haz certain compatibility with certain keystrokes, let alone 6kro. ur tvs gold haz backlit? i think not.

    now if you question why is mechanical board is expensive, you need to google and check wat is the difference between mechanical and membrane keyboards. you want to buy cheap 3rd class stuff and play then wonder why certain key combinations dontz work then sux to b u!!!
