CM Storm Quick Fire Pro Mechanical Keyboard Review

  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.

  1. 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!!!

Cooler Master CM310 Optical Sensor Gaming Mouse Review

Cooler Master has been in peripheral business for a long time, especially with regularly releasing newer keyboards and headsets. The Cooler Master CK550 and the MH751 are two good examples. The gaming peripheral market is over-crowded and yet it manages to sell. The last mouse I've reviewed from Cooler Master is the Alcor and the Mizar. I loved the Alcor optical mouse. It was an agile mouse with all the switches places in reachable areas and I wanted more was the grips the Laser mouse Mizar. This wasn't the only brand that had this point of view at the time since everyone was in the race to push laser sensors and the next best thing. I never really understood why optical sensors were considered less premium to justify lesser premium features when it was hassle-free, compared to laser sensors of certain makes that had quirks that took some firmware and sensor updates implemented by the manufacturer. Logitech was one of the gaming peripheral makers that was the first to jump aboard with its MX series. For some reason, it ditched the MX branding under G series- and now brought it back.
