The Cherry MX switches on the CM Storm QuickFire Stealth are noticeably different from competitors keys, seeing as how the label is not on the top of the key but is instead on the side of the key facing the user.  The type of Cherry MX switches on the keyboard is up to you as there are four different models, allowing you to choose between Blue, Red, Green and Brown so that you get the keyboard you truly want.  That is not the only customizable feature, you can swap in red keys for your favourite buttons, there are LEDs and even the repeat rate which you can read about at Neoseeker.

"If you're particularly troubled by the prospect that all those labels on the keys of your mechanical keyboard may rub off or get discolored as a result of your fingertips, while still needing something compact, Cooler Master just might have you covered with its CM Storm QuickFire Stealth.

Its "Phantom Keys" move all key labels to the front-facing side face of the keys, leaving the very top surfaces that you actually type on blank. The QuickFire Stealth also eschews a number pad to keep a trim figure. Hit our review to see if all this adds up to a mechanical keyboard that is as useful as it its unique design decisions."

I do like the light directly on the caps lock key instead of way up in the corner where i won't notice it, but no backlight is a deal killer for me as well.

This looks like they've finally caught on and are trying to direclty mimic the superior Filco keyboard or the Filco-esque (designed by the same man) Leopold Tenkeyless.

@Branthog

Filco and CM Storm keyboards are made in the same factory.
