The Box and Goodies -
Like the QuickFire Rapid the QuickFire Pro comes in a slim keyboard style box (in other words flat and thin). On the front is a nice image of the QF Pro which shows off the limits of its backlighting (which we will cover in more detail later). You will also note that this device has a different version of the Cherry MX mechanical switch than what we saw on the Rapid. Before we had Cherry MX Blue switches which have a high resistance and a definite click to them. On the Pro Cooler Master has replaced these with Cherry MX Brown Mechanical Switches (we will talk more about these later too).
Flipping the box over we find a fairly normal layout. You have the features listed in nine different languages along with a cluster of images to show off some of the Pro’s highlights.
Once inside the box you will see that Cooler Master has done a very good job to make sure that your new purchase is protected in shipping. There is a plastic protective cover to prevent damage to the keys along underneath this the actual QuickFire Pro is wrapped in a thin foam cover (to prevent scratches). Once you get the QuickFire Pro out you will find the rest of the goodies; a manual, a cloth covered USB cable, and a key puller. Not much inside, but then again the real payoff is the QuickFire keyboard.
