    If you're after a nice typing experience and aren't prepared for the loud, clicky nature of the blues, go for Browns. :)

    this is a long shot but does anybody know where to get the white version of the Coolermaster Quickfire Rapid TK in cherry browns?

    OCUK would obviously be my immediate first choice if they stocked it (hint)

    Hi, Unfortunately the QuickFire TK white is EOL now. However, as the shell is removable, it is modable, and I have seen a number of painted ones in the past.


    Saying that, modding would void your warranty.

    Thanks Sircles. I'm looking at getting hold of it from abroad (reluctantly).

    I think the white casing is so worth having. What do you think?

    thanks for the info, had a steelseries m800 apex, but the numpad would not work, nor would the replacement :( so going back to some vendor online for a new model

    looking at brown switches, using a mad catz kb and a rat te mouse as the latter is smooth and light

    currently looking at these:-

    QPAD MK85 Pro Gaming Cherry MX Brown Switch Keyboard
    Razer Pro Gaming Blackwidow Ultimate Stealth
    Corsair Gaming CG K70
    Corsair STRAFE Mechanical Gaming Keyboard – Cherry MX Brown

    had discounted the qpad until I read the review here :)

    will probably decide tonight or friday :)

    Are Razer green switches the same as the blue in your review I take it? As I see Razer are mentioned under the blue switches.
