Excerpt: I am very satisfied with this keyboard. Since this is my first mechanicla keyboard. I was considering between Razor and this due to price. finally I chose this one, I am happy with it. Mine is brown switch and the sound is not that big. I like fn keys which can adust volume and win-key lock. and others. I play dota2 with this keyboard. And I code Java with this keyboard. It is a good keyboard for both purpose for me. I want to typying even right now!
Pros: Comfortable Design, Great Features, Highly Compatible, Reliable Performance
Excerpt: I learned to type on the classic Model M keyboard on the PS/2 so when I took a job primarily typing all day I decided to get a mechanical keyboard. I initially got the Model M clone from Unicomp, but I soon realized the amount of force required to type on it (90 grams per key) was a little too much for an all-day typing. On top of it, I started having shoulder aches from reaching for the mouse back-and-forth.
Excerpt: This keyboard is fantastic, very well built, nice feeling keys and good options for how the cable is routed. If you need a number pad, this keyboard is not for you, but if you don't need a number pad you will appreciate its compact size. My only small complaint is how the caps lock, scroll lock and windows lock are light up, it will make it dificult to use custom keycaps with it.
Pros: Comfortable Design, Easy To Clean, Reliable Performance
Excerpt: The most comfortable gaming keyboard I have ever gotten. CM had discontinued this product last year I think, and I was glad to see it was still being sold here for its initial price! This goes very well with my new gaming rig and I recommend it to those who want solid gaming keyboards.
Pros: Comfortable Design, Easy To Clean, Highly Compatible, Reliable Performance
Summary: This keyboard was a great value for a first time mech keyboard user. I added some o-ring bottom out dampeners and it sounds and feels much better then my old Logitech G11. I thought I would miss the back-lighting, but with the red WASD keys in place I don't think I will need lighting for hand position anymore. Also, I love having more desk space.
Excerpt: CM Quickfire Rapid is the ten keyless mechanical keyboard I could find that worked with Mac out of the box. All multimedia keys work with Mac. A lot of mechanical keyboards I researched had some sort of issue with Mac or required some software to be installed. The CM Quickfire rapid works right out of the box. The most you would have to do is update your modifier keys in OSX and switch your key caps for option/command.

Summary: I bought this keyboard for at work since I already had the QuickFire Stealth Tenkeyless w/ Cherry MX Blue switches at home, but thought that might be a bit loud in the office. I really like the form factor as I rarely ever use the number pad. It also puts the mouse closer to where my hands are on the keyboard. The brown switches have a good feel to them, though, I do enjoy the blue switches at home quite a bit.
Summary: Love it! Tenkeyless + mechanical keyboard provides great ergonomics. I should have done it sooner! So much better typing experience due to no having to shift hands to the left. Only drawback for me is coming from a backlit keyboard to non-backlit. I can't justify the price for the newer model with white backlight. This keyboard might be not perfect for hardcore gamers, especially FPS gaming since WASD is now shifted to the center due to compact size.
