You have solved my only problem with this keyboard thank you sir.

I'm going to be buying the quickfire tomorrow with blue keys. Did they remove the branding on both keyboards? I really want the reds but the blues only cost $65.

Yes they were both changed. The blue version will look like this if you manage to get the newer version:

hmm. Get the blue and grab some caps for $100 total? Or just get the Red for $90?

Like many others, I was very turned off by the branding of the keyboard. Once I had discovered that a branded-less version existed and could be requested when ordered from the CMStore, I ordered the red. Made the request, and it was apparently ignored frown.gif Received my keyboard today with all of its branded glory.

I've noticed people are put off by branding (or it seems that way). Why? How often are people really looking at their keyboards, or are they trying to receive accolades from others for their savvy purchase? I've converted a half dozen people to mechanical because of the reliability or how they operate, not because of looks or branding.

Anyway, here's a pic of my setup: keys changed (for function, not looks) on the QF are the WADS, escape (to a red Ducky), and Windows keys (off the Rosewill). Changes were so I can see the keys in the dark, if I look at them, and for tactile feedback (windows keys). The stock QF windows keys had no bump, so I was forever hitting Ctrl. No plans to change keycaps because, I don't care about the font on them. Provided they don't crumble to dust, then I'll be happy even if they turn blank.

Some people care more about aesthetics than others - simple as that. There are a few in this community who buy new keycaps because they prefer certain fonts, or key colors - again, aesthetics.

Well it was a MAJOR complaint when the CM Storm QFR was brand new. Compared to many other mechanical keyboards the branding on the CM Storm was over the top. Personally I never had a problem with it, in fact I actually prefer the branding on the keyboard contrary to popular opinion.

My Quickfire is from Taiwan. So, on top of branding. I have "other" language lettering on my keys. Dont know if its Chinese or what.

Bad pic, old iPhone picture of it when new.
