Cooler Master Updates Devastator, QuickFire Rapid-i

Cooler Master introduced on Thursday a new version of its Devastator keyboard and mouse combo, as well as a new version of the QuickFire Rapid-I mechanical gaming keyboard. Both products are available now in Cooler Master's online store, priced at $29.99 for the CM Storm Devastator combo and $149.99 for the CM Storm QuickFire Rapid-i.

The Devastator combo now provides a Red LED edition in addition to the standard Blue LED model. Both the mouse and keyboard feature an ergonomic, ultra low-profile design that provides "extended comfort" for those long gaming marathons. The keyboard sports custom membrane keys while the mouse enables on-the-fly DPI changes (800/1600/2000).

"Both pieces of Devastator compliment the other with a mesmerizing option of either blue or red LED glow," according to the product page. "Whether you're new to PC gaming or a seasoned veteran, Devastator delivers great performance for an incredible value."

As for the CM Storm QuickFire Rapid-I, the company is now offering a model with Cherry MX Blue switches, which joins the current Cherry MX Brown model. This new version is still powered by a 32-bit ARM-based processor, which enables the responsive lighting effects provided by Cooler Master's ActivLite Technology.

"QuickFire Rapid-i includes N-Key rollover functions, a compact tenkeyless form factor, solid build quality popularized by its QuickFire Rapid predecessor, and the ability to set lighting profiles on a Per-Key basis," according to the press release.

The company reports that in addition to buying these peripherals straight from Cooler Master, customers can also get them from local retailers in the coming weeks.

    I like how that Coolermaster looks. Pity 10key mechs are so big, or I'd have gotten that sort of variant :\

    That keyboard mouse combo is as value oriented as they can get. The question is, does it perform well?

    32-bit ARM processor in a keyboard? Makes me feel old - I remember when that was new high-end stuff.

    The devastator combo is good, as long as the mouse isnt faulty. The lack of drivers for the mouse leaves you with a dead mice once it causes an issue in windows, with no chances of troubleshootinng but to RMA the whole combo..
