Some of the CM range is garbage. it isn't fair to judge the QFR based on other CM boards. They aren't made the same, or even by the same manufacturers. The QFR is also a TKL board, so unless the ducky you compared it to is also a non-backlit TKL board, the weights are meaningless (not that weight is a particularly good indicator of quality to begin with).
All 3 ducky boards I've used have more flex, more creaking/squeaking noises, and looser keycaps than the QRF. my YOTD (the only TKL ducky I've used and thus the only one that is fair to compare on this point) also has worse feet , both the rubber pad ones, and the "kickstand" ones. Lastly the QFR if I remember correctly uses wire/costar stabilizers while all the ducky boards I've used have has the (subjectively) inferior cherry stabilizers.Edited by Zero4549 - 8/10/13 at 3:51am
