Cooler Master, an industry leading chassis, thermal solution, peripheral, and accessory manufacturer, today announces the next incarnation of the extremely popular QuickFire Rapid Mechanical Gaming Keyboard, the QuickFire Pro.

Precision, Comfort, & Durability

Featuring a smooth and clean aesthetic, QuickFire Pro includes laser-marked keycaps and a non-glossy matte finish. This is complemented by a set of extra keycaps (includes a key puller) that give the keyboard an extra appeal that draws other gamers in. A response time of 1 ms, in USB mode, offers gamers a necessary consistency to navigate the ever changing landscapes of their video game libraries.

This is a terrible keyboard, had a play with it at CeBIT and out of the three models they have, this is by far the worst. Anyone planning on getting one, make sure you get to try it out first, as it's very uncomfortable to type on.

If you say about a mechanical keyboard with Cherry MX switches is uncomfortable to type on, you clearly have no idea what you're talking about ;)

Nothing to do with the mechanical switches, it's about the layout of the keyboard. It has a sharp edge at the front which makes it really hard to place your palms in a comfortable position when typing.
Add to that the fact that the keys have a wonky angle compared to their other two models and this is a terrible keyboard.
The Trigger is much more comfortable in use and it's actually designed like something you can type on.

Ah no, this is the keyboard people were afraid would be a step down from the Quickfire Rapid. I hope they're still using the same parts for this.

Not defending it, it looks awful IMO, but beside the sharp edges I don't think it's much different from any other Cherry MX keyboard in terms of layout, angle or whatnot (limitatons of the keycaps and the switches themselves).
But I guess we have to wait and see what other reviewers say about it.
