CM Storm QuickFire Ultimate Gaming Keyboard Review
The QuickFire Ultimate keyboard is the newest arrival in CM Storm’s collection of highly advanced consoles. This keyboard is much more technologically advanced than the previous ones as it can process multiple key presses within seconds. It was launched in August 2013 at a price of $114.77 and has received a rating of 4.2 stars out of 5 on Amazon.

The product dimensions are 17.9″ x 6.1″ x 1.2″. The keyboard weighs 3 pounds, whereas the shipping weight is 4 pounds. It also comes with a high-quality, built-in USB cable. The keyboard is available in two colors which include red and brown.
