If you really don’t want 2X USB 2.0 ports on the keyboard, the only selling point of this board- compared to QuickFire Pro- is only the wrist rest and 64KB onboard memory+ 5x Macro keys- Windows Key On/off toggle ALT+F12 option (no- I didn’t forget the polling rate on Pro- but it doesn’t seem to matter to me when it comes to keyboards). The CM Storm Trigger should have everything that QuickFire Pro has and doesn’t has, but its not the case. If they windows key being off by default doesn’t bother you, its not really a con. If you’re like me who prefer that the standard options should work the way they should by default.
CM Storm has introduced a new mechanical keyboard in a town called Trigger- sporting with 5x Macro keys, 64KB memory for storing Macro and Keyboard profiles, 2x USB 2.0 with a 5v port and a wrist-rest pad. Worth the dough over one of my preferred gaming keyboard so far- Quick Fire pro? Some premium/gaming peripherals come with the best of the stuff, but the packaging is pretty much as standard as you can imagine, but CM used Polyethylene Foam to protect the keyboard the way it should be. Rest of the illustrations -as expected from CM Storm- says what you…

BBQ Score

Summary : Its a good keyboard, but between the Pro and Trigger- you have to buy based on your preference. My preference points towards the QuickFire Pro, but not having a wrist rest on the QuickFire Pro is a con where I have to bite my tongue. Damn!

  1. the rubberizing on the wrist rest starts to wear off after a week of use. also, thesymbols are a little wonky at first, as the sybols are below the numbers, and the [ and ] and are not lit, instead {, }, and | are lit. you get used to it though. no other probs.
