CM Storm QuickFire Tk or Razer Black Widow Ultimate 2013

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So i've been shopping for a very long time and I still have not been able to decide which keyboard I want. I was wondering if I can get some advises from people who has tried these two products or have done some research on them and let me know how they feel about them.

Im leaning towards the CM product just because it's $20-$30 bucks cheaper. I'm really into the blue switches nice and clicky. If there are other options I'm willing to look into. In my mind, I'm learning to CM because it seems like its the same as the BWU. It has blacklit, blue switches, but the size seems smaller. Thanks for reading!

Definitely TK, not only it is cheaper, but it also of much better quality. The only thing is that the way numpad works requires some adjusting.

I love my TK, well worth the money and small form factor with a functional numpad is awesome.

I have a BWU, I like it a lot but I feel I'm not that much into the MX blues. However that strange CM numpad feels wrong. I agree to say CM keyboards are better deals but this one ... maybe not after all. Plus MX reds are a typing nighmare.

Definitely go with the CM Quickfire!

I've got the CM Quickfire TK with the Cherry Reds, just got it the other day. I was also able to test out a Black Widow with Blue switches at the Tigerdirect/CompUSA.

I'm not sure how other blue switches feel, but the overall FEEL quality of the Blackwidow didn't feel so great. I'm not sure how to describe it.. the keystrokes didn't feel as solid as I thought they could of felt.

The TK is nice so long as you don't need constant use of the NumPad and the Arrow Keys, I'd imagine if your someone who uses it heavily that switching back and forth with the Numlock key can get annoying really fast.

Ya.. go for the Quickfire.
