QFR With Greens Are in the Store
« on: Wed, 27 March 2013, 17:41:49 »
If anyone else wants them, the QFR with green switches (not, I repeat, NOT the stealth version) is listed in the CM Store for the US.

Looking forward to getting my hands on this marvelous piece of clicky clacky goodness.

Hmm, it just let me add one to cart. When do you find out they're not in stock? I thought if there was no stock, it let you know right away.

2 more questions, 1. will the stealth have mx green switch options/   
and 2. any scrap of information when they will be available?   

REP   7:27:58 PM      
The stealth is not a released item yet, so I don't have any information on what switches will be available. I am afraid we don't have an eta on that either.   

EZ   7:28:49 PM      
aw ;/ I wanna buy the MX greens but I'm afraid if I do the stealth version will come out
can you at least tell me if I should wait?   
which would mean they are coming soon     

REP   7:30:48 PM      
I would wait.   

EZ   7:31:01 PM      
NICE!

I'd like to have a green switch board, although I'm not sure how often I'd use it.

Anyone know if these will ever come around again? --->  http://mechanicalkeyboards.com/shop/index.php?l=product_detail&p=199  /    http://mechanicalkeyboards.com/articles.php?article=cherry_green_mx_switches_coming

I emailed them about that one a while back and they didnt know/didnt think it was likely.

I'd rather have a full sized board, I use the numpad at work and home too much..

I hear you on the full-size board, I have the CM Trigger with Greens, a lovely 104-key unit.  But if you're on the fence about Greens, it's hard to go wrong with a TKL board with Greens for $100...  Subtle logo on the back of the case, and no weird gray rubber coating (my one gripe about the Trigger). 

Having said that, my next new keyboard will probably be a Ducky Shine 2, ideally with green LEDs and White switches.  Or Grays.  Or even Greens, the LED color is what I'm trying to match.

I'm a bit sea sick ... I really like Cherry Stabs more but who knows when the Ducky will come out again with Greens.

Still, it's going to be hard to say no if the XTS w/ Greens gets released.

Come on Ducky :(

I know.  I was looking to order one and saw that they were out of stock.  Rajiv posted last week in the QFR Stealth thread that they were getting a shipment of the regular QFR with Greens in.  I was refreshing the site multiple times a day looking for it.  I thought I would pass on the info, as I know that Green boards are in high demand right now (after I bought mine of course  :D )

I do prefer Cherry stabs over the Costar ones, but like you, I'm not sure when/if Ducky is going to release a non-Shine II board with greens.  I really want them to release a Pro with Cherry White (not Clears, the milk switch) and engraved PBT caps.  I would be all over that.

Hopefully the guys that are waiting for a QFR Stealth with Greens get theirs soon.  I thought about it, but I have a few nice keycap sets coming from group buys.

But what about (on the stealth version)

*Stealthy rubber coated Keyboard body
http://www.coolermaster-usa.com/product.php?product_id=10035&product_name=CM%20Storm%20QuickFire%20Stealth

I'm not a fan of that.

If its anything like the Asus G73S that has it all over I semi-retired except for trips out of town, then blegh, thats crap. If anyone knows for sure post up. If so then maybe I'll take the plunge for the $100 board tonight/tomorrow morning.

I thought I remember reading something about variance in keycap size on some CM boards so swapping sets isn't possible? Now I can't find it. If that's not the case Ill probably order one today, had to see what I could find for a numpad first.

That applies to the QuickFire TK that I know of, swapping sets on that doesn't work out so well since the bottom row is sized differently.
