It really comes down to how you type, the majority of the noise outside of "Clicky" switches should all sound relatively about the same.
Red/Brown/Black are = as long as you are not bottoming out.
Blues/Greens on the other hand have Audible click feedback.

Thank you for the response.

 

So basically the Trigger and the Quick Fire I have differ because Trigger has numpad + macro keys and wrist rest? The Quick Fire has a phenomenal build quality, can we say the same thing for the Trigger?

 

Since my current one is black switches, I might go for the Red version since it seems a hot one as well but can not decide unfortunately :(

My left alt-key just failed on my CM Quickfire with brown switches. I've applied for a RMA and I'll see if it works. I'm a bit worried at getting the same keyboard who will probably also fail in 2 months.

Shame, it was a nice keyboard.

-Seems like it was just a small batch of CM Quickfire with Blue, Red or Brown switches.

I would stay away from the CM Quickfire line of keyboard for now. There is obviously something wrong with the QA and the design because this isn't the first thread I've stumbled on.

Actually it was only a small batch -

Also its impossible to recall the whole shipment because only about 1 out of 20 boards suffer the issue.
Please understand this was something we didnt catch, but do apologize, and assure you we have tightened up QC BIG time on our Costar boards.


On other news I RMA'd my keyboard and it should be there tomorrow, not quite sure how long it will take but I'll keep everyone updated.

Just got another quickfire rapid w/ broken left alt. yup, this is a real problem
post #897 of 1084
I just picked up the QF Rapid I'm typing on at Microcenter today. MX Blues and no branding on the face of the KB. It doesn't even have the CM Storm Windows keys. frown.gif I like typing on it a lot so far, but it's rather loud. Does the loudness of the click decrease over time with break in or will it always be this loud? I wanted the browns, but I couldn't beat the price I got on this one ($51.99 AR). Also, where can I get a pair of the CM Storm keys?

I don't think the blues get quiet over time. Will always be loud. Good thing about the linear keys you can touch type to be pretty silent

Looks like you got the newer revision of the rapids without the branding all over the keyboard

The trigger has a lot more case flex and all together doesn't feel as solid as the quickfire rapid to me.
