titleEveryone and their mom have jumped into the mechanical keyboard party over the past year. Typically each of the keyboards has a fairly standard layout with a few small differences to help them stand out. When we saw Cooler Master’s new offering I was excited to see something a little different. If you have ever seen a Filco keyboard this may look familiar. The new Cooler Master QuickFire Rapid is a compact keyboard without a number fad for those looking for something that doesn’t take up very much room on your desk. Sounds like a perfect keyboard for going to LAN’s doesn’t it? We thought so, let’s take a look.

It isn't a natural keyboard, so nope.
I was going through a bunch of old keyboards we have at the shop, and I found four or five Microsoft natural keyboards. I thought of you. :)

hehe

I used this when I was at the LanOC Office for Christmas. It's a great little keyboard that is awesome for LAN's. I missed the keypad on the right side cause I use it all the time but for LAN's this thing would be awesome. Hell, I might even replace my old G15 with this. I like it!

Thats a nice little keyboard!

The detachable cord is an interesting feature. Perhaps they could incorporate a wireless/wired charging function like we see on some mice... Use it wireless, when the battery gets low, use a magnetic coupler to quickly attach the cord, and you continue on like nothing every changed!

A back-lit key option would be pretty nice as well, since many LAN party environments are dimly lit.
