You can, but I don't want to order from pchome because I don't want to pay $30 extra for switches that should be available in North America, if not at regular retailers, then at least at the cm store.

Oh I agree with you. I felt very annoyed at the fact that CM doesn't at least have it available in their store for North America. This is why I went with the Leopold keyboard from elitekeyboards.com .

I'm not sure if you can. Is there a version with only chinese characters? Because I'm pretty sure I picked english and mine has both.

Its not really $30 more either. Its $111 shipped to USA. The msrp of the reds version is $89. Plus shipping and possible tax the price is about the same. Even with no tax its only about 10 bucks more.

Well the MSRP might be $89 but it's cheaper than that from Newegg, Amazon (when they have stock) and various other US etailers.

Of course this is the second time today I've failed to read a post entirely. I thought you were referring to the Quickfire with cherry mx blues. Ignore my post.

Ordering from PCHome is actually very quick and painless and, since there is no tax and the shipping is really cheap, it's really not much more than if it were for sale here in the States. The keycaps have Chinese characters on them, they look pretty cool imo, but I ended up swapping in some different keycaps anyway.

After that, I definitely couldn't justify the price. How is the the cm keyboard worth it at that point?

A lot of people are going to change the caps regardless. So if the price is 90 for the board instead of 140 then in the end your saving some money.

I'm not sure I understand what you mean. At what point? If you are referring to the keycaps, I would have swapped them out regardless of the keyboard I got(unless they came with PBT), because I prefer the feel of PBT over ABS. Also, I already had the keycaps from using them on other keyboards.

PBT ftw. I just put a black set of pbt's (gold legends) on my cm storm. The keys have a matte look that matches the case of the quickfire very well.
