Rating: 7.5.

Cooler Master’s CM Storm range of products has been slowly expanding in the last couple of years and now contains a wide range of gaming peripherals.  It’s clear that they are trying to compete with the big names in the gaming peripheral market like SteelSeries, Razer and Logitech.

Today we are going to look at the latest mechanical gaming keyboard from Cooler Master, the CM Storm Trigger. It boasts an impressive feature set which includes Cherry MX mechanical switches, customisable LED backlighting and macro buttons.

Interestingly, the Trigger is one of the only mechanical keyboards on the market which is available with all four colours of Cherry MX mechanical switches.  This means than you can choose the type that suits you best without having to purchase a different model of keyboard.

    Looks good. I would prefer Cooler Master over Corsair personally as Corsair software just doesnt work right.

    I love the option of choosing the key style. blue for me all the way !

    Looks great IMO.

    They face a lot of competition. I think the razer black widow is the best, but its like £120 now. seems excessive for most people. even if it is b uilt like a tank.
