Guys I do apologize for me not being on here much. Super slammed with CES and trying to get everything back. I will double confirm arrival for brown switch as I have not been able to look at the forecast in a couple weeks. Will let everyone know tomorrow.

Sorry not trying to hijack the thread but if you can let us know when QuickFire XT is coming that would be great too  :D

When will brown switches be available in the Netherlands?
And when will keyboards with menu key become available?

Hey Carter, can you comment on the TK's unorthodox bottom row and why CM have taken this approach? Just wondering, because even though many backlit keyboards I've seen have uneven spacing on that row, their key caps are still standard size—this is not the case with the TK's spacebar and CTRL keys.

Any idea when we can see this white keyboard with backlighting available?

Never, I am in the process of EOL'ing the quickfire pro, as it was made by iOne which is a vendor we are discontinuing business with. We looked at bringing the white in way back when, but ultimately decided not too. We displayed it at CES becuase it matches a White/Blue theme HAF xB mod.

I am considering bringing in White TK's tho.

That's teasing ;)

Anyway, do you know if any of this applies to Australia?

I'm guessing QuickFire Pro is getting replaced by QuickFire XT?  Well played CM Storm  :D

Also white TK would look awesome too !

I asked Carter about the availability a little while back:

Sorry, its tough to keep track of which forums i have updated and which I havent.

TK brown US version was slightly delayed further and is looking to be about mid Feb for the black bezel.

White tk w/ brown switch will most likely be late Feb.


In before "WHITE TK!!!!!!!!!!!!!?!?!!?!?!!!!!?!!?!!?!1!!!!ONE"

Just thought peeps in this here thread would like to know.

You ordered directly from CM Store? Wouldn't it be cheaper from Ncix.ca?

Looks like Memory Express carries the TK w/ browns, but is currently out of stock. Canada Computers seems to have it as well, but only as an in store purchase.

I bought direct from CM because they get more money that way. More money means more support for products up my alley, and more love for Carter.

Sure I can save 20 bux going elsewhere, but I like to think of it as a tip.

Also,
Hell with that, LOOK WHAT'S BACK IN STOCK.

Ah, didn't check there since NCIX usually has the largest selection of keyboards here. 

There's a notice on Canada Computers that the browns will be in March/April.  My friend will be pleased to know that they're at least coming, thanks.

I recently bought this keyboard and overall it's pretty nice. But the whole numpad thing is somewhat tricky. Especially because the 2nd enter key (as well as "+") get deactivated when you turn num lock off, even though they have no secondary function.
Is there any way around that? Maybe reprogramming the function or something? Not sure if that's possible. Any input would be appreciated.
