Cooler Master introduces the CM Storm QuickFire TK, a new line of gaming keyboards available with Cherry Red, Cherry Blue and Cherry Brown switches. It's a pretty basic keyboard without a lot of bells and whistles, there are no extra programmable keys but what the keyboard does have is a backlight. Depending on the version you choose, it has red (Cherry Red), blue (Cherry Blue) or white (Cherry Brown) key illumination with three lighting modes and five different light intensity levels.

The keyboards are available in retail stores for around $99.99.
Cooler Master, an industry leading chassis, thermal solution, peripheral, and accessory manufacturer, today introduces a true gamer’s keyboard, the QuickFire TK.

Precise, Ergonomic, Versatile
Featuring a cool and clean aesthetic, QuickFire TK includes laser-marked, grip coated keycaps and a non-glossy matte finish. This is complemented by user requested reductions in markings and decals to provide a clean and professional look. Cleverly removing the home and arrow key clusters, QuickFire TK offers no compromises by combining these into a fully-functional ten key pad that switches seamlessly between Game and Work mode.

A response time of 1ms, in USB mode, offers gamers a necessary consistency to navigate the ever changing landscapes of their video game libraries. With the Windows Key being disabled in GAME mode, users will no longer worry about possibly losing a match from accidentally minimizing the game.

Multimedia shortcuts are available to ensure that media can be controlled with ease. With N Key Rollover, users connecting the QuickFire TK via USB can activate one or all of the keys on the keyboard simultaneously and have them all register. Full backlit LED lighting permeates the keycaps in colors that correspond to the Cherry MX switch type selected.

Special edition blue LEDs and blue back plate come with the Cherry Blue switch model and red LEDs and red back plate are installed on the Cherry Red, and White LEDs with a white back plate for Cherry Brown switch models. These high quality LEDs offer 3 lighting modes and 5 different intensity levels.

Long-Life Cherry MX Switches
Offering the best available mechanical hardware, QuickFire TK integrates Cherry MX switches. These provide the QuickFire TK with the ability to respond to, and recover from, furious button presses with almost zero lag. Vastly improve your possible gaming actions per minute by utilizing a QuickFire TK Mechanical Gaming Keyboard in FPS, MMO, RTS, and other games. Cherry MX Red, Brown, or Blue switches availability will vary based on region.

Travel and Manage Cables with Ease
Travel with ease by simply removing the included braided USB cable and storing it. While attached, the braided USB cable can be routed through cable management grooves in the back of the QuickFire TK. This prevents unsightly cable clutter and helps minimize risk due to a hanging cable catching a foot or leg from a loved one.
