Keeping aside the reading materials, you get the mini USB-to-USB 2.0 braided cable with a ferrite bead, the board itself and the wrist rest attachment.
The plastic shell of the keyboard is of good quality as expected. The wrist rest area is about 18.5”x 3.5” and has a Rubber coat on it. Its a very large and comfortable wrist rest so people with large hands shouldn’t have any complaints.
There’s also a small section on top of the arrow keys with the same rubber-ish feel.
One point to note, however. The good part of having a fairly used keyboard that is used and tested by many reviewers and gamers, in general, is that such peripherals go through a certain extent where you could get an idea of any potential wear and tear during the time of its use. When you’re looking closely at the images, you should see a part of the peel around the rubber-ish area (the border of the keyboard to has a rubber-ish grip).
The rubber grip for the keyboard is present on the underbelly- same goes for the angled elevation.
Some of the rubber grips, however, would probably come out much easier if the adhesive wears off after a long time. Not a con, but if larger and thicker strips were used on the wrist rest and the section where the plastic is moulded to hold these are made accordingly, it could be prevented.
The keys do have a soft finish, but not the same feel as the rubber-ish grip on the board.
The Wrist rest is comfortable with and without the angled elevation.
CM has 4 version of this keyboard and the difference between them are the keys. CM storm makes it a point to ensure that one can see this clearly in-front of the box. For those who do not know, Cherry Red MX keys are usually preferred for those who want a lesser feedback compared to Black MX counterparts. Before QuickFire Pro, I mostly preferred Cherry Red/Brown keys. Its after I evaluated Quick Fire Pro, the key tops play an important role along with the force feedback the of the mechanical key that you would be using.
The keys are laser etched, and the material that is used on keycaps is PBT Plastic.
