Refund my keyboard for a perfect working one and CMS quickfire has my trust
9 February 2014
Summary: I am an avid gamer and computer programmer. When I bought this keyboard I was initially pleased but I learned there are some difficulties with it. My bottom left alt key does not work at ALL. As you can imagine this makes this keyboard almost useless to me when I want to play certain games that frequently use this key. I looked up this problem and it seems a there was stock of them with this problem and that is when I bought it on sale.
Cheap connector construction ruins an otherwise good keyboard

Summary: I bought this item on June 27th 2013. Around September/October, it started malfunctioning frequently. While typing, random series of letters/numbers would appear, and the keys on the number row would stop working. I realized that this stopped when I fiddled with the cable. It only happened once every few weeks, so I didn't pay much attention to it (and at first thought it may have been a driver issue). But it happened more and more frequently.
Summary: The keyboard, when working, is wonderful. Last month, though, when I plugged it in, the caps lock LED lights briefly, and then nothing--it doesn't show up on any USB hub or when directly inserted into my MBP, linux workstation, or windows. Something internal must have fried. I haven't dropped it or been rough with it--it stayed on my desk. :\ Emailed customer support via their website, and didn't hear back from them.
Summary: UPDATE MAY 2013: TL;DR: AVOID IT. Mine has been problematic since early May and is now basically useless. Cooler Master has a lemon here and support knows it. Customer Service? Apparently non-existent. Keyboard fails after your Amazon return date, TOO BAD. You'll be spending 15-30% of the purchase price every time you have to ship it back. At just over 3 months the keyboard has basically turned into a paperweight.
