CM Storm Quick Fire Rapid-i Fully LED Backlit Mechanical TKL Gaming Keyboard - Brown Switch

Powered by a 32-bit ARM processor, the Rapid-i's ActivLite Technology incorporates 5 lighting modes with 5 brightness levels. Using ActivLite, users find themselves adding a richer aesthetic to their space. One such mode enables the backlighting to brightly illuminate upon each key press and fade softly as your fingers move on to the next key.

The effect is a deeply satisfying visual trail to bring a unique effect to your typing experience. Because of the Rapid-i's 32bit ARM processor more backlight modes can, and will be added for the Rapid-i in the future. ActivLite also allows users to individually program keys for unique game and application uses, while the onboard memory makes it possible to save profiles that store up to four different presets.

wanted a tkl keyboard and settled on thi

nice keyboard and a solid feel to it (for me anyway).

like the feature to lock the windows key so it doesn't work.

cannot understand why the usb cable supplied has a left angle on it, either a straight connection or right angled would have made more sense.


Very good but a major design flaw

I've had this keyboard for nearly 7 months now and overall this keyboard is a very good keyboard. The keys feel good and you know when you've pressed a key. It's minimalistic, non of that tacky logo stuff you find with other brands and gimicky multicolored LEDs. Just a nice white colour LED's and some awesome brown switches.

The only MAJOR gripe I have with this keyboard is the micro USB cable. If you nudge that connection slightly at the back of your keyboard, the connection and power to keyboard is lost. It's the sole reason I'm in the market for another keyboard exactly like this but without damn micro USB socket to connect your keyboard. With this in mind, I can't recommend this keyboard to anyone.


Excellent programming keyboard

I bought it to replace a standard Dell keyboard I had at work, which had very stiff keys and was extremely inconvenient. What a relief! The key presses take less effort but are registered reliably. They keyboard is not silent by any means, but it isn't very loud - perfectly acceptable in an open office. Lack of numerical keypad means I have more free space on my desk. Highly recommended.


If this is your style, you can't go wron

Aimed at the gaming market, this is actually a very ergonomic keyboard. Very comfortable to use and very easy to type quickly, the lack of a keypad allows for more room with your mouse hand, bringing your arms closer together putting less stress on your body. I bought this keyboard (a while back from this review date) for gaming purposes, but this is a hidden extra which has not be highlighted. The keyboard is built solid, with a nice matt rubbery touch, a weighted feel with rubber soles so it doesn't slide around your desk. The illuminated keys are very visible and can be adjusted to suit your needs. The different lighting modes are as always a bit of a gimmick other than the mode where you can illuminate certain keys to your game of choice (you can set 4 different modes). The lack of a keypad will not suit some, but I find this an acceptable loss being able to bring my mouse closer to the keyboard. The brown switch is in my opinion the best option, as it has just enough re!
sistance so you don't accidentally press a key, whilst at the same time being easy to type on and not too clicky. For the price, I do not think you can go wrong. Other than being a bit bland to look at, with minimal decals and logos, I think this suits the average gamer and even typist.

My only real problem is that due to the matt finish, if you have sweaty or greasy fingers, this will turn the keys shiny, so make sure to give it a gentle wipe with a clean microfiber cloth after.
