Today we are going to review the Trigger mechanical gaming keyboard from Cm Storm that is part of the Coolermaster gaming division. The Trigger that we got is equipped with Cherry MX black switches so it’s not as loud as the other keyboards on the market; but the question is how comfortable this keyboard is to type on and game on. So lets find out!

This keyboard comes very well packed in this huge box with foam all around the keyboard. There is a small hole where you can get a feel on how the mx switches work. Inside you will find a USB cable, correction slip, info slip about drivers and also a quickstart manual.

The num, caps and scr lock keys all ligt up with red LED’s. On the left side of the keyboard they have placed macro keys which both has good and bad things about them.

The bad thing is that it moves the keyboard to the right which makes it harder to type since I for one push on the wrong keys all the time since im used to the keyboard part to be more centered. On the other hand the macro keys make it easier for you to game and to use them for various functions.

    Got one and it died after few months. No answer from Tesoro about warranty. Better to look something else…
