CM Storm Quick Fire Rapid - Page 93

post #921 of 1084
Where can I find the CM Storm without the branding? I'm in the UK and can't find it... : (

Like this I found on Reddit.

Not going to be helpful to you, but I got mine from US Amazon from Amazon LLC, I'm curious to know if these are just the new stock or some temporary factory oops.

Carter listened to the community and asked CM to start producing the QFR with less branding, I say less because there is still branding on the front of the keyboard. As far as I know places need to sell out on the older stock to be given the newer one with less branding. It's been a few months since the brandless one was released so I'm betting Amazon would be carrying the newest model. Though it's never certain you will be given a brandless one.

I'm from the UK and I bought my QFR red switch from www.scan.co.uk.



As you can see there is no branding on the face, its all matte black casing. The only branding is along the top edge:

Only been a few days but ALT key (blues) is not DOA. However have read it can take a awhile to act up, and honestly I'm not doing much to stress it. When I play WoW, ALT is my main modifier, but on a break. Does anyone know if it is just a matter of a soldering issue, or damaged/faulty PCB?

I love this little keyboard so far, my only complaint is the detachable USB cable is way too rigid, I can't get it to stay in the side channels and it just lifts itself up in the air across the desk.

I just picked up one from with MX Blues from Fry's on sale. It's sharing the desk with my Ducky Shine II. So far I like it.

I just received my replacement Quickfire and I have a strange issue. It seems that anytime I press a key, there is a metallic sound coming from the keyboard. It's like the spring was hitting a metal plate and bouncing back. I don't remember that annoying sound from my previous board.

Man, what a mess, I just want a mechanical keyboard. I'll stay away from cheap ones from now on.

It's a CM Quickfire with browns. My previous CM ALT key failed.
