CM Storm Quick Fire Rapid - Page 30

post #291 of 1084
Anyone having a problem with the keyboard not always being detected? On my gaming pc, it took me quite a few plug/unplug for my system to recognize it. With my macbook, it does not always detect it. I wonder if i got a defective unit due to its plug or the keyboard itself.

Try a different cable. Mine was DOA so I used a spare I had laying around.

5 years (well about) with the sn and that was your first post. Impressive!

LOL! As you can probably tell im pretty much a lurker here. Way to make that first post count eh? Anyways, I just got the news on the new CM Quick Fire and bit the bullet. Loving it so far except for that issue above. The Blues are very clicky indeed but makes for good typing and gaming.

WOW!!! That helped so much!!!! I had no idea a bit of pressure in the right places could do that. Its not totally perfect yet but its much much better now.
Thank you so much. You sir are a gentleman and a scholar.

Also, whats with all the keycap hate? I actually really like the stock keycaps. They feel pretty nice and the font is pretty dope imo.

Because that's our opinion?

All these "futuristic" fonts look hideous to me.

I have to agree on funky "cool" fonts. Looks tacky.

Are the keycaps lasered with infill or printed?
