CM Storm QuickFire XT Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review

CM Storm QuickFire XT Continued




Looking at the back edge of the keyboard, the left side offers this full sized USB port to allow for the USB cable provided connecting this to the PC. I do miss the extra port to allow me to plug in a mouse or headset, though.




I skipped ahead to grab the USB cable and inserted it into the port. The fit is snug and will take a little tug before coming out.




On the other side of the back edge is the only place that this keyboard screams CM Storm in any way as far as logos and wording is concerned. I can easily tell it is a Cooler Master keyboard, but for those looking for something a little more subdued, this may be it.




Under the keyboard you have a completely sealed section of plastic covering it all. There is a lack of any sort of drainage, so a spill is going to mean a long process to clean up correctly. It does, however, offer four rubber pads and two adjustable feet to get the XT in the right position for you to use comfortably.




At the back corners you are given the option to allow the rubber pads to grip the desk so that it slides around much less. If you need the ergonomic angle as I do, you simply flip out the feet, but they are plastic and will allow the board to move a little more easily when in use.




The front edge offers two pads just like this one. They are a nice soft consistency and do grip rather well when all four of these are on the desktop.
