CM Storm Quick Fire Rapid - Page 20

post #191 of 1084
@CMCarter

As a Canadian, I cannot see why I would ever but the Quick Fire cherry red from your CMStore. The shipping is $20 (which is reasonable) but the customs and added taxes make this keyboard very unattractive. Please give us the option of USPS and not UPS (I don't want to pay $30+ brokerage fee on top of everything else) or give a few MX reds to Canadian retailers like NCIX or Canada Computers. Otherwise I may just have to get a Ducky Shining form PChome who provide super fast EMS shipping and absolutely no fees upon pick-up.

Where do you see the cherry red in the CM store? Also you can get it from PChome for $111 shipped to the US. Not sure the price in canada I think its the same world wide.

I didn't, I added the cherry blue to get an estimate on shipping so that I have an idea of the cost when the Cherry reds come out. Yea its 120 shipped to Canada but I'm not too fond of the chinese characters.

You need to add $10 to the price on the CM site for the red version. If you didn't already.

Thanks for the advice, guys. I ordered the board and replacement keys. I'll post a screenshot when everything arrives.

It has been more than a couple of weeks, any updates? A tenkeyless Cherry MX Blue model seems strange first of all... a gaming keyboard with typing switches and no numberpad. I assume most people who want a typing keyboard would want a numberpad.

The "CM Storm Quick Fire Rapid" is marketed as a gaming keyboard. The Razer BlackWidow also uses blue switches, so I think there is a market for gaming keyboards with blue switches.

That said, as a computer programmer, I prefer a tenkeyless so that I don't have to move my hand as far to reach the mouse. It's much easier on my shoulder over the course of an eight hour day.

This keyboard is on my list with a few others. I just seen Cooler Master's CES 2012 products from various YouTube videos and the Quick Fire Pro is more of what I want because it has the numpad on the side. Even if I use it once in a while, I'm just used to it plus also use some of the keys for the hot keys. biggrin.gif

Anyone know when the new keyboards come out?

I just bought a Leopold Tenkeyless with cherry reds. It's built just like a Filco, which is what the Quickfire Rapid is.
