Neat. They're usually good priced compared to other mech keyboard vendors.

So they can be stingy and cheap out on the backlighting that models like the QuickFire TK have. That's the one I bought, I find that CM cut corners wherever possible when it comes to keyboards.

The only reason I bought a QF TK is because it was the only one that had MX Blue switches, supposed N-Key rollover (it doesn't, that's an outright bold-faced lie which they should be sued over), and full blue backlighting for a price which wasn't outrageous. It's MSRP is $100 and I bought mine for $90, others with those features are outrageously priced.

Overall it's satisfactory, but I don't like the fact that they made it a mini keyboard with a lot of functions set to secondary, that means I can't just alt+F4 anymore. Even $90 is a stupid price for $2 worth of plastic and manufacturing/labour/shipping costs, but it was the best I could find. I wouldn't be so pissed off if its N-Key rollover really was N-Key, it's in fact 6 key, and its so called 6 key rollover is more like zero, it can lock at the 3rd key, meaning only 2 are pressed.

The sad part is, if I shopped around even now, this would still be my top pick. Just remember that their 6-key and N-key rollover claims are outright lies.
