Been looking at mechanical keyboards for weeks now. I figure if I don't like it and can't return it, I could still make a profit selling off ebay. Gonna give this one a shot. I've only tried browns before, so maybe I can come to like this.
FYI from first-hand experience using/typing with this exact keyboard for many months now:
- Clicky/very responsive. Can be a problem if people are trying to sleep and you're nocturnal. It is great for typing and gaming. There is a technique called "bunny hopping" in counterstrike 1.6 and people can hear me legitimately pressing the keys while I'm doing it (as opposed to cheating; using a script). People on skype can hear me typing and believe me to be writing up a novel (100 wpm and insane clicky noise makes them go WTF?).
- Compact keyboard due to no numpad. This will be a problem for people if they consistently sign up on websites that don't know their credit card information (or if you do not save it in your browser)... leaving you to constantly re-type it. You then rely on the numbers above homerow. Also, this is annoying when typing phone numbers and social security numbers as well.
- If you're a keyboard design nut like me, I believe the key location, size, and shape are perfect as they should be from the bottom left CTRL key all the way to the F12 key. AKA the ENTER key is not a backwards L shape, the backslash key is above ENTER and about 1.5 key-sizes in length, the backspace key is 2 key-sizes in length, etc.
If you don't like it, you can re-sell it. I think the re-sell value is pretty nice on this. You could do that a few times and then buy the Coolermaster QuickFire TK with the profit.
Coolermaster QuickFire TK is like the re-mastered QuickFire Rapid. There are backlighting options and the numpad returns. The arrow keys and every other key that you need is still there in the compact size that this QuickFire Rapid keyboard has.
