As I spend more time with the Cherry MX green switches, I really got a feel for what all the hype was about. At first I had thoughts that the tougher key stroke would wear out my hands faster, and it does do that for a couple of days, but in the long term I found myself becoming much more accurate in my keystrokes. The stiff resistance offered to the actuation point of the switch doesn't allow you to be sloppy on the sides of the keys like softer reds, even the Alps will allow at times. So while the Trigger may be a bit to get yourself used to in the beginning, I completely think it is worth the time and energy associating yourself with the Trigger because it will lead to you being a better typist, and you get more defined control in gaming without accidentally brushing other keys. For those of you with super-fast fingers, the 6-key roll over and anti-ghosting support may be a little weak for your needs, but I found no limitations in my gaming or typing while thoroughly enjoying my time with the Trigger.
Other aspects of the Trigger lends to it being a keyboard that most users can enjoy with things such as the fully back lit option, the detachable wrist rest, the detachable cable and USB 2.0 hub; they are all good selling points to any ordinary keyboard submission. Putting them all in together with some of the easiest software I have used for a keyboard, the unlimited control it offers users, and the feature set now including the Cherry MX green switches, there is just nothing that should turn you away from seriously considering the CM Storm Trigger as your next keyboard purchase. If I were to try to attack this keyboard for anything, I would say the blunt front edge may be uncomfortable to some users, and is something I found out long term with the QuickFire Pro, but the Trigger comes with the wrist rest to combat this issue as long as you have the room for it.
If you follow my keyboard reviews, you know how high I hold the Matias Tactile Pro 3 keyboard, and to tell you the truth, after spending quite a bit of time with the green switches on this Trigger, I don't see a real reason to go back. I really do think that for my every day runner, the currently $104.99 CM Storm Trigger with Cherry MX green switches is overtaking my desire to even plug the Matias back into my PC.
While this keyboard isn't for everyone, and is why it is in limited quantities, those with desires of using these green beauties, jump onto the local Cooler Master site and order yourself one, you won't be disappointed.
