Introduction
Hardware Secrets Silver Award

Cooler Master is releasing two new QuickFire keyboards under its CM Storm brand, both aimed at FPS games. In this article, we’ll review the QuickFire XT, that comes with a choice of four Cherry MX switches, depending on the region the consumer is in. We got the Cherry MX Blue; we’ll talk more about its characteristics later on. Let’s first describe the product.

Figure 1: QuickFire XT Keyboard

The QuickFire XT has 140 mechanical keys with no illumination over an embedded steel plate. The keyboard does not feature programmable keys, but it has a separate numeric pad and multimedia controls. A function (Fn) button beside the Right Ctrl disables both Windows keys and engages the multimedia controls (F5-F12). Laser-marked keycaps ensure that the letters and numbers will not erase over time.

The body is slim and compact around the keys. On the upper side, there is a USB port that connects the keyboard to the desktop through a detachable cable, which makes it easier to transport. There is no wrist rest.
