CM Storm Trigger Keyboard Review
Perhaps more famous as the gaming case arm of Cooler Master, CM Storm have also furnished us with a few excellent peripherals in time. The last one we looked at was the Sentinel mouse and Sirius headset, both of which we found to be very good indeed.
So with due anticipation we finally get our hands on a product we first saw at the Insomnia event, the CM Storm Trigger mechanical gaming keyboard.
With a sleek look, a bevy of features, and a design that has been rigorously tested in demanding conditions, can the Trigger provide us with all we look for in a keyboard?
The key, if you'll pardon the pun, to a good keyboard is excellent switches, and with Cherry's providing the heart of the CM Storm Trigger it's clear that we can't complain there. Depending on where you are in the world you will receive one equipped with one of the four types they provide. For those to whom this is new information, the Cherry switches are the premium mechanical switches available, and the colour largely depends upon the amount of pressure required to actuate the key itself. Our model comes equipped with the sturdiest Cherry Black switches, which require the most force to depress, but balance this with extreme longevity.
Besides those we have all the elements we hope to find on a premium gaming keyboard, including a six key anti-ghost, full (but adjustable) backlighting and five dedicated macro keys.
