Solved Trying to choose a keyboard

December 22, 2012 at 07:44:41
Specs: Windows 8 x64

Hey there. I just bought a CM Storm Quickfire Pro for Christmas. I got it and tried plugging it in to my computer, but it kept giving me a "USB Device not recognized" message. I decided to return it for a refund after trying for hours to get it working. So I'm faced with a decision. I'd really like to get a reliable keyboard after this experience, and I've heard good things about the Das Keyboards. But I've always heard shining reviews about the Logitech G110 (and I really like having a headphone jack on the keyboard for headphones). Though I don't need all the macro keys and the special extra gaming features that the Logitech comes with. So do I pay more than twice for a good quality keyboard, or would the G110 be sufficient? Does anyone on here have both to compare? Are the MX brown keys better feeling to type on than the G110? How durable is the G110 in comparison? I really can't decide...

Doesn't appear to be a driver at the CoolerMaster site & I don't see anything about which OS is or is not supported. However, there is a single question in the FAQ section that mentions the USB cable & using a USB hub.

As for a keyboard recommendation, I'm not a big time gamer. I wouldn't even consider spending $75+ for a keyboard. My Microsoft keyboard is good enough for me. You might wanna try asking in the gaming forum.

"it kept giving me a "USB Device not recognized" message"

Did it come with a drivers disc & an installation guide?

Nope, no driver CD, and I couldn't find any downloads for it on the support website either. It's supposed to be plug and play. I've already sent it in for a refund, so there's no chance of getting it to work now.
But I would like some advice on which keyboard to go with, if anyone has any experience with either the Das or G110.

Read the instructions better. My guess would be that PnP doesn't include Windows 8.
