Everything I wanted


Would buy again, but probably wont have to buy another key board for a very long time. If every company made products that felt this sturdy, life would be grand.

Quite (not silent) keys that have a distinct feel and sound when pressed ; Nice glow on the LED, with changeable LED settings ; 5 max profiles for MACROS, that you can change instantly ; The macro program is difficult to learn at first, but allows for...

You cant set the extra macro keys to open programs ; The macro program is difficult to get the hang of at first

Power/Connection Problems


Looks great, feels nice, and responds nice

This is a great keyboard ruined by the (apparently common) problem of the USB power connection. It worked fine for around a month but recently it just looses power/ connection to my PC for no reason, often in the middle of the game. This now happens on...

Nice keys.


I'm still getting used to not having to press as hard for a keypress to register.

Typing on this keyboard is highly enjoyable. LED backlighting is nice, adjustable

it's a shame there isn't RGB backlighting. You must install the software in order to use the "Storm" key as a windows key

I Would Stay Away From CM Storm Trigger Keyboards


Get a Corsair Vengeance, Razer, Logitech, TTeSports. Any other brand really. I'm not going to trust Coolermaster with a quality gaming keyboard anymore, and I wouldn't recommend this poorly manufactured piece of junk to anyone.

Heavy Weight ; Comfortable ; Nice Clack ; (Please read the cons, it gets hairy)

So, I won this keyboard in a giveaway about half a year back. Since then I've gone through THREE of these keyboards. The longest one of them has lasted for me is 2 months. The Micro-USB power connector that powers the keyboard and plugs it into the...

So after my anansi getting zapped due to a misplaced glass of water, and its replacement (A K90) arriving DOA, I figured I would go with something new, and picked up this guy. The first thing I noticed was they used Cherry Brown keys. Now I never had...

CHERRY MX Brown keys ; Mechanical Tactile Keys ; Solid design, with Rubberized coating on entire keyboard (not just keys and/or rest) ; Detachable USB Cord ; Backlit keys

Weight. The keyboard is rather heavy ; Noise. Although Cherry MX Browns are quiet by design, they still are mechanical and produce noise ; Tactile Feedback. Although this isnt a issue for some, others may be turned off by only needing half the key...

Not amazing, but reasonably good.


A great keyboard in many ways, the Cherry MX Black switches will provide the most "clicky" experience you're likely to find on anything short of a typewriter. Attractive and feels very sturdy. Not alot of functionality for the price range, no dedicated...

Great looking, Cherry MX Black Switches, Lighting is Generally good

Somewhat limited offering for the price, lighting not quite right on some keys

High Quality Gaming Keyboard


I bought this keyboard somehwere else ;), so that's why there's no verified ownership. But thought I should put a review on here to help others make an informed decision ; This is excellent gaming keyboard, very smooth typing and feels a lot better...

Only con I have is the software could have been a little bit more user-friendly, it took me a little bit to figure out how to save your macros to a profile

Cooler Master SGK-6000-GKCM1-US


It took a bit of searching, but you can make the left "storm key" work as a winkey. The right storm key cannot be remapped.

Mechanical switches. I would've liked the cherry black ones that click too, but the brown are okay ; Backlight is nice at night ; I love the wrist rest. It's hard to find a good keyboard with an attached wrist rest. This is why I chose this keyboard...

No backlight on "shift" functions. For example 1 is nice and red, but ! isn't. You can't even see ! in the dark at all ; I'm not loving the macro keys. I tend to shift my left hand over too far when I start typing because I'm used to the regular keys...
