In the I/O panel you see there is a DC 5V input connection to maybe power the USB ports, but there isn't a power cable included. Then we move on to the mini-USB port for the keyboard connectivity, leaving the standard sized USB 2.0 ports as a pass through hub.

Flipping the keyboard over you can see an imprint of CM Storm taking up much of the bottom panel. On the left side there is a manufacturer sticker with the model and serial number on it, and a tiny OK sticker denoting it passed quality control testing.

At the back of the keyboard there are three thick rubber pads used as feet, and will keep the keyboard from sliding around. If you prefer to raise the back half of the board, simply lift the fold in feet to add another half inch of height.

On the front edge of the board you will find three more of those thick rubber feet for a total of six under the Trigger, but here you will also find places near each foot to clip in the wrist rest.

The wrist rest easily clips into the base of the keyboard, and as you can see it contours to the shape of the front of the keyboard as well. The hexagonal design isn't just to look good; it adds structural support to the rest as well.

With the wrist rest on the Trigger, you get an additional eight feet made of the same material, just a bit smaller in size. With 14 anti-skid feet now on the Trigger I can assure you it isn't going to move around during use.

The wrist rest is really deep, but keeps a gentle angle rising as it meets the front of the Trigger. I did spend some time with it in use on my desk, and with the blunt leading edge of the Trigger, this really helps if you have the room to use it.
