CoolerMaster Storm QuickFire TK LED Backlit Mechanical Keyboard Review

The Storm QuickFire TK LED Backlit Mechanical Keyboard by CoolerMaster is a great keyboard especially if you are a gamer who needs a smaller, more portable keyboard. Unfortunately I needed a full-sized keyboard, but you can blame the QuickFire for my inability to read.
