I've been using my new CM Quickfire Rapid with reds, and I love it even more than my Ducky with browns. Even though there is no tactility like the brown switches, I find typing on the reds much easier and more satisfying for some odd reason. Gaming is also fantastic. The linear behavior of the switches allows me to make actions a faster than I did with the browns, although it's a small difference. Typing on the reds is also quieter than typing on the browns. I do make more typos on the reds than I do with the browns, but not a lot more.

It could be the design of the Quickfire, but the large keys (backspace, enter) have a slight snappy click to them as I would imagine blues would sound like - which I actually enjoy. Loving the smooth rubberized texture of the keyboard frame. I also don't mind the Quickfire logos - the only things I don't really like are the large function icons on the F5-F12 keys. I will probably make the Quickfire my home and gaming keyboard, and take my Ducky to work.

I highly recommend the Quickfire Rapid with red switches. LOVE IT!

To Emissary: My enter key does not squeak. It's probably some friction in the switch.

All information would be greatly appreciated ...
Kind regards.

You need to lubricate the stabilizers with some silicone grease. You can find silicone grease in the plumbing aisle at any home improvement store. I'd link you to Ripster's wiki that shows you how to lubricate stabilizers, but the site it's hosted on is down at the moment. Needless to say, it's a fairly easy fix that won't take but 2 minutes and will quiet all stabilized keys on your keyboard (ie. backspace, enter, spacebar, left and right shift).

How do I remove the key though ... I can unclip the key from the MX switch but the stabilizer bar is still attached ... is there a way to remove the key without breaking anything

Remove the keys around it first.

Ha, my first mechanical keyboard was a WASD and it had that exact setup. I never liked the blue a while lot. I ended up giving the board to my wife. It has all white keys.

Did the blue really look that bad ?? ... ... Maybe I will go all white with the std black escape and who knows .... hahaha ... all I know is that for me to order that keyset and get it delivered it will cost like R450 ... which is half the price of what I paid for the keyboard ... =P

Yah you just gotta stop thinking like that lol. It does suck though but it will totally complete the board when you get a set of caps for it.

I wouldn't say it looked that bad. I just didn't really like it personally when I got it. But the blue in the pic looks like what it is in real life pretty much.
