That keyboard is older than me.

And it probably works better too.

He dont really need to mod it to usb cause you can always have the blue cube adapter + u get to use the original cable..... or since this board is with detachable cable he only needs this if he wants to have the straight USB connection

Just went and picked up my Coolermaster Quick Fire Rapid, cherry mx blue. Is gonna take some getting used to, but god do I ever like the feedback and the noise. I'm making the jump from a Logitech G11 (useless as I didnt use the macros or anything) to this, which is about half the size and built like a brick. As I said, making the jump from the G11's rubber domes to the Blues was pretty big, but I didn't like the lack of feedback on the blacks or lack of sound on the browns. A little disappointed when I got this home though because I had confused this one with the Pro and thought there was some backlight (there isn't). mad.gif

Anyways, in short I love it, makes my desk look even bigger (ikea galant, don't know how it could get bigger), and the blues are awesome. For 80 bucks I think this was a decent start into the world of mech keyboards, but next on my list will definitely be a Das or Ducky, which one depends on whether I get used to no lights on my keyboard. tongue.gif

Edit: Forgot to add, I only use headphones on my PC, so the sound won't bother me when listening to music or gaming. The feedback is definitely welcome though.

Pics to come soon.

Another guy here moving from G11, in my case to Storm Trigger, with black switches.

I love it! Seriously, absolutely no adjustment time was required for me going from G11 to this one.

I do, however, have two remarks:

1. I am pleasantly surprised how these black switches feel after all the horror stories I've been reading here and generally on the internet about how black switches are heavy etc... If this is considered heavy, I'd be very interested to try the red switches, as I have trouble imagining something that's actually much lighter than this. smile.gif

2. One complaint I have about the keyboard construction is that the double sized keys (caps lock, tab, right shift) are a bit wobbly I guess, in a sense that if you press them on the corner they don't go down evenly. I guess it has something to do with the stabilizers being used?

Anyway, 9/10 from me. And yes, Cooler Master, shame on you for cheapening out on the DC adapter!

I agree with you on all points, I find myself drifting sideways in games because my fingers are pushing the keys down when i am not trying, I wish there was a way to adjust the activation.
