Already One light out

Daniel H., Newegg
24 November 2015
  • Summary: Very disappointment, it has not even been a day, let alone have a day and a LED already died!
  • Pros: Firm build
  • Cons: I have only used it for a couple hours and one led already died. Its the "L" key that died, and during the couple of hours that used it this keyboard i was mainly gaming. So, I barely or didnt use the "L" at all.

left alt key

Daniel H., Newegg
20 November 2015
  • Summary: Sadly, CM has QC issues. I have another Cooler Master mechanical keyboard I use at work, it's great. Guess I don't trust this brand anymore.
  • Pros: The keyboard is nice, I like it. Seems sturdy.
  • Cons: My left alt key was dead on arrival. Is there no quality control? Now they want me to pay to ship this broken junk back. Adding insult to injury, try doing a google search for "rapid left alt key", it's apparently a common problem.

eh...it still kinda works

Dale N., Newegg
13 August 2015
  • Pros: size and key noise n feel are great other features all as advertised
  • Cons: 1/3 of keys don't lite anymore that's a real bummer because the only other con was the 90 degree plug going to left out the back of keyboard which was a small inconvience but the keys starting to burn out in such a short period is a real let down

Unreliable LEDs

Jeffrey J., Newegg
29 June 2015
  • Summary: Love my cherry browns, but after six months, I have 3 LED's burnt out. I can't wait to hear how much it'll cost me in shipping to fix CM's horrible LED selection. The micro usb connector is starting to wobble too, but that's just because I have to disconnect and reconnect the keyboard after every...
  • Pros: Cherry brown switches Heavy Construction

LED's don't last

Jeffrey J., Newegg
29 June 2015
  • Summary: After six months, I have 3 LED's burnt out. I can't wait to hear how much it'll cost me in shipping to fix CM's miserable LED selection. The micro usb connector is starting to wobble too, but that's just because I have to disconnect and reconnect the keyboard after every fourth reboot.
  • Pros: Cherry red switches Heavy Construction
  • Cons: Horrible LED lifespan Cheap micro USB connector

Bad software, Bad hardware, Bad support

Anonymous, Newegg
19 June 2015
  • Summary: Many other options out there that have better lighting, better compatibility, better customer service, the same Cherry switches, and in the same price range.
  • Pros: Cherry switches are consistently what they are.
  • Cons: Why Mac users should not buy this keyboard: -The software to fix bugs (like the keyboard not being recognized at start up) only works from a Windows machine. The keyboard will work on a mac until it doesn't and then you need Windows to fix it. Why no one should buy this keyboard: -LEDs going out....

A great keyboard. But a Dysfunctional Connection.

Donna V., Newegg
2 June 2015
  • Pros: Great Keyboard when it works!
  • Cons: This Keyboard has been giving me considerable issues in regards to keeping it connected to my PC, in the interest of trying to fix it I purchased a new mini USB cable, and while that seemingly helped for a while the issue has been coming back. I have to re-plug it each time this happens, and the ...

User Review

Alex B., Newegg
18 April 2015
  • Pros: Nice switches, good to type on.
  • Cons: This keyboard died one day after the replacement RMA expired. The board suddenly stopped working one day and no matter what I did it, my computer would not recognize the device. I tried reinstalling USB drivers, using the board on a different machine, nothing. I just find it interesting that the ...

Lights going out

Anonymous, Newegg
28 March 2015
  • Summary: The light behind the 5 stopped working after using it for 2 months. The lights would be a cool thing if they worked but if they fail so quickly then they are a poor gimmick. I would have saved 60 bucks and gotten the cheaper RapidFire.
  • Pros: Cherry MX Brown switches are great. This is pretty standard though so not something to distinguish from other keyboards with the browns. The keyboard feels solid without much flex.
  • Cons: The light behind the 5 stopped working after using it for 2 months. The lights would be a cool thing if they worked but if they fail so quickly then they are a poor gimmick. I would have saved 60 bucks and gotten the cheaper RapidFire. The RapidFire is a 4 star keyboard, not the best but a value ...

Keys activate before tactile point

Anonymous, Newegg
27 February 2015
  • Pros: Nothing that can overcome the fatal flaw.
  • Cons: As a long-time mechanical keyboard user, it didn't take long to notice a fatal flaw - the keys actually activate before the tactile point. What is the point of a mechanical switch with a tactile point if the keyboard registers without giving feedback? So disappointed by this product.
