Background and Identification ¶
The CM Storm QuickFire Rapid is a mechanical keyboard produced by Cooler Master. The keyboard comes stocked with either blue, black, or brown Cherry MX switches that are plate-mounted to the board.
Unlike some of the other models produced by Cooler Master, the Rapid has a tenkeyless layout meaning it does not include a number pad. This makes the keyboard smaller which makes transporting it easier, and take up less space on a desk.
Although the QuickFire Rapid does have LEDs underneath the caps lock and windows lock keys that indicate when these functions are active, it is a base model that should not confused with the new Rapid-i model, which features LED back lighting under all the keys.
