CM Storm Trigger Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
Fresh from the packaging you can see the Trigger arrives with a109-key layout including the number pad, Macro keys and multi-media and keyboard controls.
The Trigger is chunky and measures almost a full inch to the deck in the front and just over an inch in the back. If you use the adjustable feet, the back is then set to 1.5".
The main section of the keyboard has black keycaps inside of the aluminium trim, and all are cast white first, then have the black layer applied over it to help keep the legends intact on the key caps longer.
Moving in closer you can more easily see the cut away for the logo in the aluminium trim that will later illuminate, but I also wanted to cover the lighting keys next to it that will adjust the light levels and patterns of illuminated keys.
The key caps are cylindrical in shale which helps to center your fingers for touch typists, and the home keys have a distinct ridge on them that is easy to find.
The right side of the Trigger houses the "lock" LEDs at the top with a full number pad and arrow keys used with this layout. The front of the board is also notched here and gives the palm of your hand a guide of sorts to say on the keys.
Just like the other side of the Trigger, there is this two piece plastic construction that gives the Trigger a bulky look and feel. Since I type on my lap mostly this isn't an issue.
Looking down the length of the back of the keyboard you can see some grooves further back purely as a design element. Nearest to you is the I/O panel on the Trigger.
