CM Storm Trigger Keyboard Review

Software

CM Storm Trigger Keyboard

Software

The software is an optional download, and a large one at that weighing in at 100mb to download, and a 460mb footprint after installation. To be fair this is ridiculously large, and the inclusion of bitmaps for the UI doesn't help. However it's feature-rich, with multiple profiles and easy macro recording.

When recording a macro the software offers a nice timeline overview of the keypresses and delays. You can select from real-time delay, a 50ms default one, or no delay at all.

In case you desire it, clicking a section of the recorded macro will highlight the keys used at that moment. Assigning the macro to a key is incredibly easy, and you can choose to play it once, repeatedly or in a cycle.

Playing a macro isn't the only option available from a key. You can launch applications, macro's, duplicate other key combinations, choose from a preloaded list of options, or disable the key entirely.

Looks good but that price tag is too high imho.
like the power input in the back though for the USB connections, something i could use on my old G15 would make my desk tidier

Looks good, but I don't understand why manufacturers don't offer a greater variety of colours, instead of the traditional black.

As a future purchaser of the Stryker, it really would have been great to have a white keyboard and mouse. I can't help but feel that it's a tremendous oversight to not have at least a choice between white and black keyboards and mouses.

I can only live in hope that manufacturers start including greater variety in terms of colour down the line. We have every kind of keyboard & mouse under the sun...why not more colours to choose from?

From a production point of view, the manufacturers would have to spend a lot more money as they would essentially have to have a separate production line for each colour. They are all about maximizing profits and I don't see it happening anytime soon unfortunately

Mine just died today 2 months in and it took my mouse with it, The CM Recon which was plugged into the keyboard.

Mouse began flashing blue which is odd because my default setting is red on always. Then after a few seconds my keyboard went bzzzzzzzz and now there both dead.

edit

forgot to add do not use a external power supply to the unit. They do no include it for a reason. It obviously leads to a defective product.

I will update this thread to see how RMA handles me which will end up supporting my suspicion or negating it.


My response from RMA team..
