Cooler Master CM Storm Trigger Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review


The CM Storm Trigger keyboard from Cooler Master can be ordered in four versions, with both Brown, Black, Red or Blue Cherry MX switches and features red LED lighting for all keys. The intensity of the LEDs can be modified straight from the keys...

Cooler Master Trigger Review


Spending more than a few hundred rupees on a pair of headphones, mice or keyboards might seem like a waste of money to the layman and the Cooler Master Trigger is one such, high-end gaming keyboard, which might come across as such as a product. Ask a...

Priced at 8,500, there’s no denying the fact that the Cooler Master Trigger isn’t expensive. If you’re looking for just any mechanical keyboard, there are a few cheaper options. They’re noisy and crude, but they offer good value for money. Remember...

Great Keyboard


The keyboard has blue under the keys, making the blue lads stand out(in my version anyway) My left arrow key's Cherry MX Blue switch does not have a 'click' and is defective, however that just seems like a bad key, so I won't take off points or RMA it....

-Backlighting -Macros -Cherry MX -Good Wristrest Backlighting- Great, extremely bright with 5 settings Macros- Here if you need them Wristrest- Nice, Big, Rubbery-Plasticy thing that is very nice to use, however it falls off if you pick it up, but...

No RGB(I personally don't really care, as long as it has a backlight)

CM Storm Trigger Z Cherry MX Blue


All in all everything I could have asked for in a keyboard, I definitely recommend this product for anyone looking for A) Cherry MX Blue switches which seem to be less and less common these days. B) Macro keyboard C) A keyboard that is very comfortable...

Going into my purchase my main concern was durability. I researched and researched and didn't find much on the build quality for this keyboard so I was a little hesitant. My last keyboard was a Corsair K70 which is made out of aluminium. I'm happy to...

The only con I have currently is the rubber finish is very susceptible to smearing. However I see this as a user problem, if you eat at your keyboard expect it to get dirty so I won't be docking an egg for it.

Media Controls & Backlit


My daughter's Microsoft keyboard recently broke. I gave her another more recent Microsoft model, but she was unhappy that it didn't have Media controls on the keyboard. Since she wanted the Media functions I also looked for keyboards that were backlit...

Had the media controls my daughter wanted in a keyboard and the backlighting gives her a feature she didn't have with her older Microsoft keyboard.

Keys are a little soft. Wouldn't recommend this for someone who does a lot of typing.

Great Keyboard


This is a great keyboard. It is quieter than my last cherry MX keyboard. Unlike some other CMStorm mechanical keyboards, this one works even before the OS has booted. Others I've had to change keyboards to get into the BIOS. The palm rest is very...

Full featured gaming keyboard All keys lit Macros

Palm rest detaches too easily.

CM Storm Trigger Z gets an "A"


I ordered the CM Storm Trigger Z due to the CM Storm Quickfire Ultimate being sold out, but I enjoy this keyboard more than I thought I would. Cooler Master delivers another product that I admire. Computer Specs: Windows® 7 Professional x64 Intel®...

- Blue LED Backllights! - Mechanical keyboard - Detaching the wrist rest off the keyboard. - Removable USB plug from keyboard to motherboard I/O. - Cooler Master.

I do not have cons a the moment. If I encounter problems with the CM Storm Trigger Z, I will notify about the problem as soon as possible.
