CM Storm Trigger Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

The Trigger is a fully back-lit gaming keyboard by CM Storm, the gaming division of Cooler Master. The Trigger is a mechanical keyboard, meaning that the usual capacitive light touch sensing is replaced by solid mechanical switches especially made for hardcore gaming. The CM Storm Trigger Mechanical Gaming Keyboard is a rugged keyboard, available at R1 360.

The high durability gold-plated Cherry key switches are rated for over 50 million key strokes. The keyboard has a non-slip rubber coating and comes with a detachable wrist rest. But hardcore built does not mean it looks like a piece of computer equipment that has just been through a war. In fact, the CM Storm Trigger is a good looker.

As mentioned, the Trigger is a fully back-lit keyboard and you can adjust the level of the red lighting. The keys are easy to read in mass gaming setups or simply choose the lighting setting that best suits your home gaming environment.
