Overall and Final Verdict

As of this article, I have published over 650 reviews. Of those reviews there are only a few products that have gotten more use over the years than my Quickfire Rapid. I loved it so much that I even talked Cooler Master into handing over one with Cherry Black switches back at GForceLAN, when they only sold the Rapid with Blues. They have been with me at just about every LAN between then and now due to their compact size and durability. I always said all they needed to do was add backlighting. Cooler Master stepped things up even more than that with the multiple lighting modes, four profiles that can be recorded on the fly, and a design that puts the old grey model to shame. At this point, beyond adding even more lighting modes, I have no idea where they can even go from here.

You might call him obsessed or just a hardcore geek. Wes's obsession with gaming hardware and gadgets isn't anything new, he could be found taking things apart even as a child. When not poking around in PC's he can be found playing League of Legends, Awesomenauts, or Civilization 5 or watching a wide variety of TV shows and Movies. A car guy at heart, the same things that draw him into tweaking cars apply when building good looking fast computers.

Very cool lighting modes. I would prefer back lighting other than white, though.

if you took all the keys off, you could color the white backplate and make it another color, the keys would still be white, but the glow would be something else. Might be interesting.

actually they make LED covers that work amazingly with white LEDs and you can swap them out to other colors as needed
