Basically CM Storm equipped their Trigger
Gaming Keyboard with a standard keybaord layout, which has been extended by five
macro keys and two CM Storm keys. Using the CM Storm key you can access
additional functions which have been programmed to the F-keys. You can for
example activate the backlight of all the individual keys, you can control an
MP3 program and you can also control the audio level.
Generally the CM Storm Trigger is a very robust keyboard. On average the Cherry
MX Black keys endure 50 million key strokes. Furthermore the keyboard comes with
an equally stable chassis which needs to be mishandled in quite a bad way that
it takes damage. Furthermore the keys come with a very comfortable and grippy
coating. Paired up with the Cherry MX Black keys this keyobard offers a level of
comfort you really don't find everywhere.
On the left side of the keyboard one can find the five
macro keys. These are positioned in a way that one can reach them with the small
finger. After some time it should be possible to reach them blindly.
At the place where
you usually find the Windows keys, there are the special CM Storm keys. These
can be programmed in a way that the Windows key is either activated or
deactivated. If you choose to deactivate the Windows key you wont accidentally
switch task from a game to Windows desktop. On the other hand if you're working
with Windows you might like to make use of the Windows key.
