There was so much build up in this. I was at maximum hype and giggling as I read this. I’m typing on a CM Storm QuickFire Rapid with Blue switches and wanted to read a review on the version with Greens because I find Blues to be far too light for me. I don’t like the sound of bottoming out. I also haven’t been able to reach my old top typing speed of 146wpm since going mechanical, and I think it could be due to how light Blue switches are.

From what I can tell, there’s no macro modifier key on that KB. Am I missing it? I wasn’t able to find an image large enough to see a close-up of all of the keys. Either way, that keyboard definitely looks attractive.

Would like to take a Green for a spin one of these days, because it sounds kind of up my alley. And as for macro features, I just want it to be simple… a single button that enables macro features for any other keys, that’s it. I -love- the clean design of KBs like this, but just want that one little thing :D

I prefer KBs sans extra key sets (macro keys, etc) and function sets myself (I’m a more basic user, I guess), but I wouldn’t be opposed to having one as you’ve described, Rob.

I’m very curious about whether or not I could adapt myself well enough to the Green switches to make me prefer them over my favorite Blues. I guess that’s the sort of question that can only be answered after the passage of adequate time.

I wish CM would release something like this, but with a numpad, and build macro functionality in without a series of additional keys. I’d love to be able to hit a “Macro On” key that would transform some of the regular keys into preset macros. For example, since I tend to never use the F1 – F12 keys in games, I’d like to convert them to macro keys instead.

Or if this solution wouldn’t work, I’d be content with macro keys on top of the board, above the F row. I truly dislike macro keys to the side.
