Summary: Keyboard is nice and solid. But the keycaps feel cheap. I pulled one off to change the keys to the red gaming keys and it totally stripped the center out of the cherry-blue switch. I was able to fix it and get it working again on my own. But that should not have happened as I used the tool correctly. Other than that, it's a nice small keyboard good for gaming and typing.
Summary: Cough up the extra $10-$20 and get a different brand. With the number of people complaining about this sort of thing I wouldn't take the chance although it appears their customer rep on this site is really helpful. You would still have the pay the RMA shipping either way which is the only reason I'm not RMAing.
Pros: I've owned MX Browns, MX Blues and MX Reds and the Reds are by far my favorite.
Cons: Like others have complained about my left alt key has stopped working after 1 hour of use. Luckily my hands are large enough to use the right alt key for games. Hopefully no other keys break so I don't need to return it.
Summary: would have been the best keyboard i ever owned had it not been faulty

Anyway it is awesome for gaming, and for the price its hard to beat. Not having a numpad means low sens gamers get more room for their mousepad and restricting desks that dont have a lot of real estate for periphs
Cons: the p key randomly would stop working and create a lot of issues for me, and then the backspace died, so this keyboard is practically worthless. started occurring 3 months after ownership,
Summary: Mechanical keyboards seems to be making a come back among computer enthusiasts these days. When my wireless keyboard at work ran out of battery for the second time in a week, I too found myself sucked into its hype and bought one. Ultimately it was a bit of a let down for me. The Cooler Master Storm QuickFire with its cherry MX blue switch did bring back to me a sense of nostalgia for those days I spent typing away in computer labs during middle school and high school,...
