Mechanical keyboards are becoming more and more popular among gamers, professionals and enthusiasts. Unlike a year ago, when mechanical keyboards were a very rare and expensive commodity, there are numerous unique models available today from which every power user can choose from. Today we are having a close look at the QuickFire TK, a compact mechanical keyboard with a full numpad which CoolerMaster primarily designed for gamers attending LAN parties. The QuickFire TK comes in three versions, each featuring a different Cherry MX switch and backlight color.
