CM Storm Quick Fire Rapid - Page 64

post #631 of 1084
Picked up the reds myself. Takes some getting used too. Thinking of selling the red I got with the original caps and the laser etched set as well and try my hand at a different switch. Anyone looking?

Maybe browns? What keys should I try?

Just wanted to check before returning it for a refund. $15 logitech keyboard has no key cap fade or staining, its 3 years old rolleyes.gif.
Cheap printing. But it does seem to vary quite a bit between users. I used the stock caps for a while and didn't have any fading. Some people report it within days. The oils in different people's hands may have an affect.

But I think most people buy these keyboards with the intention of swapping the caps asap. Since the legends are pretty fugly tongue.gif

From what I can gather the Browns are the best for everything, and the Reds are basically lighter blacks, and I think people mainly use Blacks for gaming. For typing I think Blues are the best. But I don't really know tongue.gif

For whatever its worth I love typing on my reds. If I were you I would go for the Reds now and if you don't like them you can sell them and pick up browns later. That's probably a better option than taking anyone's advice on something like switch preference.

If you don't mind the blue cherry switches look at the Quick fire rapid refurb on Cooler Master's web site. I bought one and the only thing I found wrong with it was the box was messed up where someone tried to remove a big label on the back, every thing else looked untouched and as new. I figured for $50 it was worth a try and am glad I did. I don't find the blues that loud but I'm a slow typer. Being on SSI means I have to watch every penny, so now I figure I am $30 ahead and can replace the space bar, windows keys ( with Linux caps ) and a delete cap I can see and still be ahead.

I'm interested in getting a QFR, but wonder if anyone has directly compared this with Filco in terms of build quality and (if same switch) feel of typing on? Best if comparison is done with a similar set of keycap thumb.gif

edit: just bought a QFR with black switch redface.gif

They're the same OEM.

I know they are both made by Costar, but depending on the materials used, the actual design and the QC process, things can be different...

The Coolermaster Quickfire is a good 80g lighter than the Filco.

Something is up there!
