CM Storm Quickfire Rapid Keyboard

Benchmark Reviews
2 April 2012
  • Conclusion: Performance of a keyboard is about being able to quickly and accurately type and game at all times. Thankfully, because of the fantastic Cherry MX Blue switches accuracy is not a problem that the QuickFire Rapid suffers from. When the QuickFire Rapid is compared to the standard HP keyboard that my school uses I am seeing at least a 20-25% increase in speed and accuracy while working on my studies.
  • Pros: Space saving design, Haptic feedback helps increase typing speed, 2 year warrenty, Full NKRO with included PS/2 adapter
  • Cons: Loud key actuations, Quite basic for its $80 asking price, No number pad

Cooler Master CM Storm QuickFire Rapid Review

16 January 2012
  • Conclusion: There seems to be two camps in gaming keyboards right now. One of these camps believes in macro keys, built-in macro recording, LCD screens and other fancy features. The other doesn’t care for that, and feels that it’s more important to have a solid keyboard with excellent key feel. Personally, I fall into the second camp.
  • Pros: Affordable, Excellent key feel for typing, Different models offer different key switches, Good build quality, Lack of numpad allows for better mouse position
  • Cons: No macro keys

  • Summary: CM Storm QuickFire Rapid лишена "фишек" из разряда подсветки или особых "игровых" формы и расположения клавиш. Её создатели, очевидно, решили не изобретать велосипед, не копировать существующие игровые решения и ограничились классическим форм-фактором, отделив лишнее (цифровой блок). Но что же тогда даёт этой клавиатуре право называться игровой, и почему столь высока её цена?
