    Cooler Master, a leading creator, innovator and manufacturer of desktop components, mobile accessories, and gaming peripherals, announced today new variants of the Devastator Keyboard and Mouse Combo and QuickFire Rapid-i Mechanical Gaming Keyboard.

    Red Shift
    The extremely popular Devastator Keyboard and Mouse Combo is now being supplemented with a Red LED edition.

The keyboard is durable, comfortable, and features dedicated multimedia control keys for maximum control of your system.

    Blue Shift
    Accompanying the CHERRY MX Brown model, the QuickFire Rapid-i is now available with CHERRY MX Blue switches. The new variant is still powered by a 32-bit ARM processor that enables ActivLite Technology, a series of responsive lighting effects. QuickFire Rapid-i includes N-Key rollover functions, a compact tenkeyless form factor, solid build quality popularized by its QuickFire Rapid predecessor, and the ability to set lighting profiles on a Per-Key basis.

    Availability
    New editions are immediately available directly from Cooler Master through the CM Store.

    Dam well I will probably get the red one since my build has red led fans, I bought the blue CM Devastator but they are so cheap in price that it does not really matter to get another keep this as back up. They are awesome keyboards + mouse combo.

    Dunno about under powered but shoddy and yes and they made it a L shape connector, To me it's so sickening how these smaller keyboards are priced and still call them a gaming keyboard as they are total useless as a gaming keyboard for people who use the arrow keys.

    So in a sence it's less of a gaming keyboard for more money HAHA.

    Out of sheer curiosity, what do you play that still uses the arrow keys?

    I hadn't considered the left-handed aspect, but with that in mind, is it not possible to mirror the wasd layout to the right side (pl;')?

    Why do that when the the keys around the full size keyboard give pretty much every key you need and mentally make perfect sense ( for the most part ). To me right handed people should be buying left handed keyboards HAHA..

    Key example

    End open
    del reload
    num1 prone\kneel
    num4\7 stand\jump
    RCTRL left lean\sprint
    Num0 right lean\melee
    Home map
    \ night vision and such
    num1,2,3,5,6,8,9 weapon change although it really depends on game.

    Well, most of those keys are further away from the "home keys" (arrows/wasd/pl;') than with the alternatives, but you're also probably missing out on ctrl, alt and shift being modifier keys for non-FPS games. I understand using what you're used to, but objectively it seems there's just less keys and a greater distance between the ones you have.
