All of them come unbranded now. The pictures on all websites will will be updated soon, but if you order from any big name retailer and the stock isnt over 5 months old. It will be unbranded.

Check out amazon for the newest pics:

As a former owner of a CM Storm QFR, I would recommend one now that they have minimal branding. The build quality is high, higher than the price would lead you to believe.
Only reason I switched to a Race was because I needed backlighting, the slightly smaller size helped as well.

CM storm quickfire rapid is pretty good, and you can find it priced around $60 sometimes. It's made by the same OEM as Filco and Das, although the PCB quality is worse on the QFR, compared to the Filco tenkeyless. I really doubt that you could tell the keyboards apart from that difference.

thanks, I want the one with the red switches but it looks like theres some red backlit or red under the keycaps on the red switch version not present on the blacks? Is that just the picture or how it really is?

Damn, even the newest unbranded model? I guess I could go for the stealth model? http://www.amazon.com/CM-Storm-QuickFire-Stealth-Mechanical/dp/B00C2MBG02/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1373527785&sr=1-1&keywords=cm+quickfire+stealth

If I buy keycaps with no holes for leds should I expect some backlight bleed?
