Hi guys!

Wanted to share a quick gallery of pics of our upcoming QuickFire Stealth keyboard.

http://imgur.com/a/dbZfa

They should be arriving mid-March and will come in Red/Blue/Green/Brown switches. The MSRP should be very similar to existing QuickFire Rapids (depending on switch type). If you have any questions, I'd be glad to answer them.

Looks really great. Cooler Master is really stepping up their game.

Even non gamers are looking at these keyboards, and I see them being recommended all the time for their great value. With this being the price of the Rapids, I can really see this doing extremely well. Previously people constantly used to say that they are great,... "If you can get over the branding". Now that they have a cleaner "non-gaming" aesthetic, I think gamers and nongamers alike will have to take a good hard look at these before going for something like Filco etc.

I think I see a new work keyboard in my future. I can't wait to do away with this horrible HP thing.

What are the chances of seeing an optional hard cover? I'll be transporting mine in my backpack so something to protect the keys would be awesome.

You could always use the sturdy cardboard box Quickfire keyboards come in

Touche good sir! I'll have to get me a can of matte black spray paint then, to match the keyboard.

That is awesome. Not enough manufacturer's provide the option of PBT. It seems to be all ABS nowadays. Doing this would really set it apart, and give this keyboard something no other "gaming keyboard" has and even a lot of top end brands do not offer. PBT laser etched, or even dye subs or engraved... that will win a LOT of people over I reckon.

I have another question:

Does the case have some sort of rubber coating (like some of your previous keyboards) , or does it have a more regular hard coating?

It is a rubberized coating... some people love it, some people don't like it, and most don't care as long as it's priced well... haha

Thank you for the fast response. I am in the "don't really care category". I mainly asked because some people over at geekhack were asking about this. I posted the info you provided here over there as well.

Blank white PBT caps please

I mean it's a pipe dream but more companies need to offer something to differentiate themselves. Blank white PBT caps are one of the reasons why I'm still considering buying a Ducky DK9087G2 Pro even though sometimes it's 2x the price of a QFR (when it's on an extreme sale of course)

I think we could always get the pbt keycaps later on, this would be great if priced around the 70-80 mark like the normal qfrs, I've always wanted one and I think I will get this, any idea on when this comes out.

I was planning on getting one with blacks, but between this and the TK, CM seem to have dropped them...Any reason why?

If only these were PBT. The blanks helps with shininess, and is similar to the ninja. Also, if CM use the OEM cherry font instead of that horrid QFR font. Otherwise, great build and solid construction.
