CM Storm Mech Gaming Keyboard Review

Rating: 7.5.

Today we are going to look at the latest gaming keyboard from CM Storm, the Mech. As its name suggests, the Mech is a mechanical gaming keyboard and is designed to offer the best possible quality and performance on the market. It’s available with Cherry MX switches in blue, red and brown flavours depending on your preference.

There are numerous other interesting features to the Mech, including customisable aluminium plate which can be removed or replaced as required, an onboard ARM processor which powers the QuickFire function and the ability to register 64 keypresses simultaneously.

    I dont mind paying that for a keyboard, but the biggest issue CM have is the competition right now – Ducky for instance make some class leading keyboards and they are £30 less than this. I can’t see this selling well unless it gets a price drop.
