CM Storm Quick Fire Stealth Mechanical Keyboard

Fresh out of the box you can see the so called phantom key caps on the Stealth keyboard. Not one of the key caps has anything on top, and from a fair distance it appears there is nothing there at all either. It isn't until you get closer that you notice the much smaller letters and symbols painted on the front of the caps.

You can see the layout is completely typical, just where you read each key is moved. You can also see a place where an LED will light up when the caps lock keys is activated.

The right side of this Tenkeyless keyboard stops with just the eighty seven key layout. There are no fancy gaming keys, Macro buttons, or even a number pad, pure, sleek, and stealthy is the name of the game here.

I removed the WASD keys and both the sticker and the model number on the box were correct. We do in fact have a full set of Cherry MX blue switches under each keycap. With these you will have the tactile feedback, you will get a click when they are pressed, and these require 50 grams of force to operate.

With the rear legs still folded in, you can see the Stealth does have a natural inclination of the keys as you go toward the back of the keyboard. Also the top half of the keyboard wraps all the way to the bottom and leaves no visible split around the edges.

Across the back of the keyboard all you will see is a raised section in the middle at the bottom of the keyboard to allow a cable to go through it and of course the CM Storm and logo painted on the right side.

When you raise the legs on the Stealth, you are given another 1/2" of height in the back and raises what was at a ten degree angle to now having a 15 degree angle of attack on the key caps.
