Summary: I've had this keyboard for nearly two years, and it's by far my favorite keyboard. I got the version with Cherry MX Brown switches and white LED and it's a nice balance of tactile response and quietness (if you don't bottom out the keys).
Pros: - Satisfying click - integration of arrow keys and keypad is seamless delivering the best of both worlds without the added bulk of having them seperate - media key - build quality is top notch
Cons: - no option/menu key - placement of Fn key - no way to completely disable LEDs - arrow LEDs wear out much faster and noticeably dimmer
Summary: This keyboard actually exceeded my expectations. I wasn't sure about the heavier MX Green keys, but now am glad I went with them. I find it easier to type with the mechanical keys...maybe because I learned to type on a manual type writer way back.
These make great type learning keyboards, and work awesome for gaming. Prefer the TK Quickfire Version.

Summary: Coming from the Saitek Eclipse 2 keyboard which is imo one of the better membrane keyboards, this keyboard is quite an interesting thing to use. I tried out the Quickfire Rapid as well to get an idea of whether I wanted a numpad or not and while I did, the form factor of the TK version made it hard...
Summary: Would be fine if all the keys worked. Mine already has two dead. Time for a different brand. All these "CM Storms" are just Costar boards in a different box. CM is just one company that does this; there are many others, hopefully with better quality control.
Pros: Cherry brown switches
Cons: Bad solder joints Dirty circuit boards that can possibly short out
Summary: This is a great beginners mechanical keyboard for gaming. The keys feel great, I'd recommend the o-ring mod for added silence. But there are some cons to this keyboard: my memes became 420x more dank than usual, my beard has spread over to my neck region, it increased my fps to an unusable 9001, and...
Pros: Exactly what I was looking for. If you're looking for a cheap mechanical keyboard that does everything a mechanical keyboard should do then this is exactly what you're looking for too. For the Cherry MX Brown, the backlit keyboard looks beautiful. Love it in white. The keyboard is also a nice siz...
Cons: Only one. One of the lights burnt out a couple months after using. But from what I've read, it's really only happened to me. Honestly not too noticable, just wish I could have gotten it replaced.
Summary: If you look at a keyboard with numpad harrow with a short size this keyboard was the deal very more quality much more quality than if I had anticipated. All work weel, all key was easy acces. Great light well
Pros: Best deal Short keyboard vs fonctionality. Numpad with harrow. alloy back plate make the keybord stiff and feel really solide. Awsome quality and low price Light really well at the low light it shine 2x better than a microsoft side winder x4. Function key work no programation need Volume up/down/...
Cons: Its not really a cons but I would have liked more light effect. .... its all i dont have any cons because itst all i whan in this key board.
Summary: Such a great keyboard, with the biggest bang for the buck. If your looking for a cheap mechanical keyboard, look no further this is the best mechanical I've ever owned. Better than my razer, das keyboard, and ducky.
