Cooler Master CM Storm Trigger Gaming Keyboard


In use, I am very impressed with the CM Storm Trigger gaming keyboard. The feel of the unit as a whole is very solid, and I am sure this could be a reliable keyboard for years longer than most other units I have used. Everything about the keys is nice...

» Very well built, » Excellent feel and responsiveness to the keys, » Back-lighting is very well done, » Highly customizable, » Software application is attractive and well done

» Additional power adapter (not included) required for full back-light functionality, » Could only get back-lighting to work with included USB cable, » Price tag of about $120 (US)

CM Storm Trigger Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review


Cooler Master have been a major player in the PC industry for around 20 years and in that time have been responsible for some stand out cases, PSUs and coolers. The Wavemaster and Cosmos are two examples which really stand out and both are cases which...

Finish wears


Would buys this keyboard again, but I just wish the finishing wouldn't have worn off so quickly. Looks like I'll be ordering replacement keys because some of the letters on the keyboard look like red blobs when the keyboard is lit up.

Keyboard functions properly without any issues, durable construction, nice long USB cable included. Backlit keyboard with the ability to turn off

The keys and the finish of the keyboard wears away pretty quickly. WASDE keys (keys used for gaming) are almost unrecognizable after owning for over a year. The palm strip also has lost it's matte finish where the palm of my hands normally sit while...

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...

Trigger Finger


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...
