CM Storm QuickFire Pro

Out of the box the QuickFire Pro is sleek with the black on black of the keys and frame of the keyboard and I really like the white and grey logo as it doesn't automatically draw the eyes to it, it's more subtle than the bold red I am used to.

From the table to the spacebar you have 31mm you need to get your wrists accustomed to, it does sit a fair bit taller than most keyboards I see and those similar in height have a wrist rest, which this does not. The left side has five grooves to add design while the right houses another CM Storm logo.

The back of the keyboard stands 45mm from table to the top of the F-keys. This side also carries the groove and logo theme as did the front, but this time there are seven groves followed by another wire management hole on the right of them.

Here is the fan that is tasked with pushing air through the ceramic coated fins. This fan has a black frame and seven blades and the frame holds four white LEDs. This fan is PWM controlled and has a 4-pin connector to plug into the board.

The right side is angled and has the wire management hole just as did the left side of the QuickFire Pro.

Under the keyboard you can see four rubber pads keep the QuickFire Pro in place with optional feet in the back. There is the sticker with the model and serial number on it and just above this is where it has a plug and wire management options for the included cable.

It was tough to get the right angle and still have enough light to show it, but here is where the mini end of the USB 2.0 cable plugs into the QuickFire Pro.

The flip out to use, flip in to store feet will allow users to add an additional 11.5mm to the rear increasing the angle for users that desire their boards to sit a bit taller in the back.
