Supplier: nullPrice: $79.99As for Cooler Master’s first foray into the realm of gaming keyboard makery, they did a pretty good job. The Quick Fire Rapid Pro is an excellent piece of hardware. It is a pretty bare bones keyboard as there are no extra...

Though they are a tad shy of the browns, the Cherry MX Blue switches are still awesome to type on.The keys were clicky and tactile, and the actuation force is just right. This feeling, however, ended when I had to enter a sequence of numbers. The missing...

This is my first experience with a mechanical keyboard besides simply pressing the keys on some at the local electronic store. So what I did after taking the photos of the QuickFire Rapid was to jump into a game of CoD: MW3. And I am here to tell you...

Though the CM Storm Quick Fire Rapid does not have any dedicated macro keys (or any macro recordings), NumPad, backlighting, and other bling-blings, it is one of the cheapest gaming mechanical keyboard out there. It also has multimedia controls and a...
