[TT] CM Storm Quick Fire Rapid Keyboard Review

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 


Quote:
For a long time I kind of felt that if you buy the most expensive keyboard, then you're probably going to be getting the best. For years I found myself exclusively a Logitech man with the latest one being a G19 with that fancy LCD screen. Being quite bored of it and getting sick of the fact that it required its own power, I finally thought I might look for a new keyboard.

i'm interested to see what other sources think of this kb... the layout of this review is confusing to read. Looks like a great gaming board!

Still ugly though, and for something on my desk, looks do matter.

Its a plain grey and black keyboard, what can be ugly about it? Not everything needs LEDS to look nice.

Not bad, not bad. I don't get the ugly comment either, it looks "normal." Clean and simple.

Still I like my Leopold Otaku Browns
