Hi everyone, just wanted to get some opinions on which of the two keyboards listed in the title would be better based on quality, functionality and overall performance. I'm from Australia so these two keyboards are the cheapest I can find for brown mx switches. Personally preferences/opinions are most welcomes! Many thanks

There's one major difference between them - the Quickfire TK has combined the numpad with the arrow keys, PgUp, Del etc., which makes the keyboard quite a bit smaller. If you use the numpad and those keys a lot, you'll get tired of swapping between them with numlock. If you don't, and you could use some more room on your desk, then it's a great solution.

The Quickfire TK also has backlighting of all keys, with various modes to choose from.

I really like my Quickfire TK, though I have the version with Cherry MX Red switches and red backlighting. But you need to consider your numpad usage carefully. If you use it a lot, you'd be better off with another keyboard (be it the Ducky, or the Quickfire Pro which is like the TK but with separate numpad).

Thanks for replying. I like the coolermaster keyboard too, everything about it just looks better built. I'm not too concerned about the numpad since I use a net book which doesn't even have a numpad to begin with. Do you find that your keyboard is a sturdy build? And performs well throughout gaming?

I've only had it a couple weeks, but it feels very sturdy. It's a small keyboard, but still manages to be fairly heavy. The rubber feet keep it exactly where you plop it down. The USB cord is thick, braided and feels like quality. No problems in gaming, and the backlight makes it easy to see if the Windows key is locked.
