      "The build quality, fully backlit keys, Cherry MX Blue switches, and the layout is really a great asset for anyone looking to do some gaming. When it comes to size, the keyboard is more than portable enough to carry around. With the inclusion of a detachable cable, the portability of this product is quite high. On top of that are the function keys, which I think is a great touch, especially on such a compact keyboard. The usage of the F1 to F12 keys as additional system keys is a great idea in my opinion."

      "The CM Storm QuickFire TK may be advertised to the avid gamer, but even for the constant PC user, this may be a keyboard worth looking at, Windows or Mac alike. We enjoyed our time with the keyboard because of its build quality and functionalities, and would recommend this keyboard to anybody planning on entering the mechanical world."

      "The Cooler Master Storm Quickfire TK is a excellent example of a mechanical keyboard made for the gaming population. It can be purchased with three different Cherry MX Switches (Red, Blue, Brown), with each switch having their own characteristics. Throughout my testing with the peripheral I never noticed any problems with the device not working the way it was intended. It behaved flawlessly in all of my gaming sessions, independent of the game and genre."

      "First, I would like to say that I love how CM listening to the community when it comes time to release a new product or when it is time to make some changes in an old one. In this case many (especially LAN gamers) wanted a smaller more compact keyboard to transport between LAN parties. CM gave us that with the QuickFire TK.

      Second, many wanted less branding with the continuation of great quality in a keyboard. Once again we got that with the QuickFire TK. Only the CM Storm logo is present on the surface of the keyboard. And the TK is built like a rock. It should last you many years.

      Third, the consumer wants choices. And again he got that with the QuickFire TK. With this keyboard you got your choice of three different Cherry MX switches as well as three different back lightings. This here allows you to be a little different from the next guy.

      Using the QuickFire TK will take some getting used to but then again what keyboard or mouse for that matter doesn’t? It took me less than a day to become comfort with this keyboard. It may take many lesser time and a few longer. But in the end it is a pretty good keyboard once you have settled in."

      "At about $90, the Quickfire TK is only about $10-$15 more than its sibling the QuickFire Rapid, and about $10 more than Razer’s BlackWidow TE—and I’d be inclined to recommend it over both of them for the back lighting alone. No matter how you slice it, the Quickfire TK is an excellent best-in-class keyboard and earns an "Examiner's Choice" award. "

      "the build quality of the CM Storm QuickFire TK is second to none. The Cherry MX Blue switches are the best I have ever used, and I love the blue accent off of the steel plate. I also enjoyed the dimming functions, the highlighted gaming keys, and I really liked gaming with it. I now favor the Cherry MX Blue for gaming over my Red, as the overall gaming performance is one to be reckoned with, including the extra room it afforded me. Overall, this keyboard is a specialist product. It is an amazing gaming keyboard."

      "The QuickFire TK has an MSRP of $89.99. It doesn't have much competition when it comes to backlit compact keyboards; I only know of the KBT keyboards and another company that I can't remember. For the price you can also get a QuickFire Rapid, which is the better choice if you don't care for backlighting. But if you're buying this, you probably want the backlight, and perhaps the innovative layout too, so it has very good value."

      "The QuickFire TK is one of the best gaming-grade keyboards we’ve tested for FPS gamers (which is, coincidentally, our game genre of choice). Robust, compact, elegant and stable on the table, it has controllable illumination and an ingenious system to shrink its size without losing keys."

      "With the Quickfire TK coming in three different switch/backlighting options and at a price just under $100. I don’t think you are going to find a lot of keyboards with full backlighting to compete. I know I have said it before, but Cooler Master is here to stay in the keyboard market and they aren’t holding any punches when it comes to competing. I’m excited to see what they will do next."

      "Overall, we found the keyboard to be solidly build, simple in its design (partially due to the fact that it is completely plug and play), and especially well thought out for a keyboard in its compact size class."

      » Details  Gold : December 2012

      "Overall, the CM Storm Quick Fire TK is an excellent compact gaming keyboard. Cooler Master tried to shove everything they could into a small peripheral. While the TK isn’t built for productivity, it is built for portable gaming. This is a perfect keyboard for any traveling LAN gamer, or to plug into a gaming laptop for heavy sessions."

      "The Cooler Master CM Storm QuickFire TK is a great keyboard. If you are looking for a mechanical keyboard for your gaming habit, then any of the QuickFire line up will certainly work for you, but if you need full backlighting, NKRO over USB and a keyboard that sticks to your desk as if it were nailed there, well then the QuickFire TK is probably the only one on your list."

      "The Quickfire TK is very well built. The laser engraved keys have very nice grip and the keycaps are comfortable enough to withstand heavy abuse. The entire unit is ergonomically sloped and rests comfortably on any surface. The keyboard is hefty, much heavier than it looks but that is no doubt because of the solid metallic construction. This keyboard looks like it can be used to club zombies, it’s that solid."

      "The quality of this keyboard is exceptional. Like most CM keyboards it's likely a certified weapon in case of an apocalypse. The keys feel great and light up rather evenly. And, even for my first time on Cherry MX Blues, I'm smiles all around."

      » Details Highly Recommended : December 2012

      "As a gaming keyboard the Quickfire TK is an excellent choice and performs terrifically for all types of FPS games. The compact size and backlighting options make it travel- and LAN-friendly . And there's just something incredibly satisfying about the tactile "click" you feel with each key press of the TK, and I honestly could care less than it makes more noise than traditional keyboards. While I never became proficient with combined arrow keys/command keys layout, the compact size is an attractive feature for anyone wanting to save precious desk space."

      » Details  9 out of 10 : December 2012

      "Overall the CM Storm QuickFire TK is an excellent gaming keyboard, I especially like the backlighting for gaming at night. The keyboard itself is very well made, it seems sturdy and should last for a long time. The keyboard is small so you can easily slip it into a bag and take it with you if need be and the build quality should prevent it form getting damaged in your travels with it."

      "Regarding the looks of the CM Storm Quick Fire TK mechanical keyboard, I am very impressed. The red back-lighting looks great and the three different modes you can choose is very unique. I really like the Windows Key lock feature and that it remembers the previous state after a cold boot or after unplugging the keyboard. Never again will you be accidentally thrown back to the Windows desktop during your favorite game!"

      Techgage: Editors Choice : December 2012

      "If you have just a limited amount of desk space for your keyboard, the TK makes good sense because of its compact footprint. If you enjoy keyboards equipped with Cherry MX Red switches, this should be on your short list of candidates. If all you do with your keyboard is game without needing to program and execute macro commands, it’s hard to think of better keyboards than the CM Storm QuickFire TK."

      » Details : November 2012

      "Overall, the Cooler Master Storm Quickfire TK gaming keyboard is a compact, dependable, and rugged keyboard. It accomplishes everything it sets out to do and is available now at Cooler Master’s CM Storm official website. It may not have a 16 million color back-lighting system like some other keyboards out there, but I would like to see someone use those keyboards as a club when the LAN tournament gets heated. I think not. With the Quickfire TK, you can quickly detach the braided cable and start swinging."

      » Details  Editors Choice : November 2012

      "We give the CM Sports QuickFire TK Compact Gaming Keyboard our highest recommendation and our ABT Editor’s Choice Award. It is a superior well-built and above average mechanical keyboard at an average entry level price.  It has become our favorite keyboard and we will be using it for many years to come.  Highly recommended!"

      » Details Gold Key Award : November 2012

      "Cooler Master’s CM Storm QuickFire TK is a great keyboard. It is the combination of two models and many user requests. On the one hand you can definitely see the QuickFire Pro, but you can also see the Rapid in the size of the board and the way that the overall footprint is reduced. We do like the fact that Cooler Master added in items from users’ wish lists like a number pad for the Raid and Full illumination for the Pro. You are getting the best of both worlds here and for a very solid price. If you are looking for a mechanical keyboard for your gaming habit, then the any of the QuickFire line up will certainly work for you, but if you need full backlighting, NKRO over USB and a keyboard that sticks to your desk as if it were nailed there, well then the QuickFire TK is probably the only one on your list."

      "Cooler Master has really nailed it with the QuickFire TK. After numerous iterations, the QuickFire TK is really coming into its own as the premiere LAN gaming keyboard. From its small, compact size to its mechanical keys and full LED backlighting, the QuickFire TK has everything you need to be at the top of your game. The grip coating gives the keys a great feel, though it can be a fingerprint magnet. The customizable LED backlighting is great for those late-night gaming sessions and is very crisp and clear making the keys readable under any lighting conditions."
