The CM Storm QuickFire Rapid made a very good impression on me with certain exceptions, especially for those who don’t require Numpads. It keeps the costs down, especially on a mechanical keyboard, maintains a good form factor and its easier to store and travel around as how LAN gamers would do it.
The rest of it depends more on the keys that you’re choosing. All I wanted on this keyboard: Backlit!
For me, Cherry Black counterpart wasn’t my cup of tea, but Cherry Red left good impression. All I wanted to see: backlit keys. I also did point out for a need of a wrist rest, but then it would be nice to see a gel based wrist rest as an extra add-on around- for those who require.
Quickfire TK has a Numpad, with cluster keys and Print Screen/ Scroll Lock/ Pause/ insert/ Home/ Page up-down/ Delete/ End buttons put together within the Numpad area…. and backlit!
