CM Storm QuickFire TK Review
Tenkeyless Formfactor with All Ten Keys
Last year, we reviewed the CM Storm QuickFire Rapid which offered the tenkeyless formfactor for portability, but came at the expense of a missing tenkey pad, and although we liked how it could be stuffed into our backpacks effortlessly, we definitely missed having the number pad when it came to working with excel spreadsheets.
If only someone could make a tenkeyless formfactor mechanical keyboard with a tenkey pad…
So before 2012 rolled to a close, Cooler Master handed us what they call the CM Storm QuickFire TK packed with Cherry MX blue keyswitches for us to review. In case its name hasn’t given it away yet, the QuickFire TK features the tenkey pad, but that’s not all. It also features the tenkeyless formfactor of the CM Storm QuickFire Rapid.
Confused and wondering what a tenkeyless keyboard with a tenkey pad even looks like? Let’s jump in and take a look at what Cooler Master has created.
