Cooler Master CM Storm QuickFire Stealth Mechanical Keyboard – Hidden and Dangerous
Published on June 4th, 2013
In addition to CM Storm’s mechanical gaming keyboard lineup, Cooler Master has updated and released a “stealth” version of their popular Quick Fire Rapid mechanical keyboard – the CM Storm QuickFire Stealth. With this keyboard, your touch-typing skills will be put to test. The QuickFire Stealth’s design and functions are basically the same with its predecessor, except that it features “Phantom Keycaps” and some added features. See features, specs and price below.
UPDATE: The CM Storm QuickFire Stealth is now available. Check out the different options below.
CM Storm QuickFire Stealth Specifications and Features
The CM Storm QuickFire Stealth features an extremely compact size keyboard with standard arrow keys, command key blocks, and with no numerical keypads. The keyboard has a stealth rubber coated body, with phantom or covert keycaps. The fonts are printed on the front side of the keycap to give that stealthy looking design.
Since it is a mechanical gaming keyboard and is built with mechanical Cherry MX switches, it has a guaranteed lifespan of 50 million keystrokes. Not only that, it has integrated steel plate for maximum durability. There are command rate speed adjustments located from F1-F4 (in PS/2 mode), 7 multimedia shortcut keys, and a Win-lock key on F9. It also has a removable braided USB cable with cable routing groves
