also if you guys can wait. i just posted this in the other thread..

WAIT.

i thought i would let everyone know that a member of coolermaster has confirmed the cmstorm red version will be released outside of china in north america for sure. no additional comments were made on other region availability but USA and CANADA is getting it... a bit later by a month but we are getting it.. this was also confirmed via email stating that retailers and coolermaster's own site store would be offering this as well.

source was from member CMcarter - hardware rep for coolmaster @ overclock.net

The questions is always gonna be, is it worth the wait. I'm curious to see the price point when it's released in the states. If it's around 100 USD then getting it on PCHome right now isn't such a bad thing. Unless you don't like the chinese character being on your keys. Of course, there's also the added benefit of buying it from a retailer in your country so you can have access to returns and the like.

it retails 79.99usd
it's msrp is 79.99usd
also the chinese character thing is not biggie since this is pretty much a FILCO top to bottom you can buy any key cap set on ebay or from marketplaces on geekhack like in here http://geekhack.org/forumdisplay.php?70-group-buys or here http://www.vendio.com/stores/E-sports-Gaming-equipments/category/pbt-key-caps/catId=3982960 or here http://www.wasdkeyboards.com/index.php/products.html
most ppl are modding the hell outta theirs already anyways.

yes.
there have been several and many hands on videos already with cm staff saying the price.
there has also been mods with that exact kb on hand doing full reviews stating this as well.
unless their staff is a bunch of liars...

Hey guys

Quick report for the European users who deliberate about ordering at PChome. I've ordered my Quick Fire Rapid with red switches on December 26 and it was delivered on December 30 to my place in Switzerland! Very quick service I'd say thumb.gif

I've payed 116.00 Swiss Francs (95 Euros) including delivery, plus handling at the Swiss customs (35 Francs) and Swiss VAT (11.85 Francs). A cheap option compared to other mechanical keyboards I could have ordered from the US, UK or Germany. Delivery around the world from Taiwan to Switzerland is by far less expensive than it would be across the border from Germany.

This thread helped me a lot with my decision for my first mechanical keyboard. Maybe my experience with PChome does help others as well...

The Quick Fire Rapid is a great keyboard by the way!
As this is my first mechanical keyboard I'm probably not in the position to write a qualified review. But I'm able to say, that it fullfills my expectations completely.

Some thoughts for those who are still wondering which switches to get on their first mechanical keyboard: I bought my Quick Fire Rapid for gaming only (MMOs, Shooters, Starcraft) and my decision for the red switches feels perfect. I was a bit worried that the low actuation force of the reds might feel too soft and encourage accidential keystrokes, but I haven't had any issues with that at all. The switches feel wonderful and perfect for gaming - though I would probably prefer a tactile feedback for writing... but that might just be the acclimatization period it takes to get used to the keyboard (I'm comming from the dark side of the force, due to the industrial sector I'm working in -> Apple scissor-switch keyboard on a Mac Pro workstation)

To make a long story short: full recommendation for this keyboard and for ordering it at PChome (if you don't care about additional chineese letters on the keys). Also a recommendation for the red switches if you're a gamer looking for a smooth key activation.

Please be patient if my post reads a bit "bumpy", English is not my native language whistle.gif

Greetings from Switzerland

My two buddies both picked up the quickfire rapids with blue switches yesterday and they love them. From what I can tell its a very solid keyboard.
