Cooler Master Unveils New CM Storm Mechanical Keyboard

Cooler Master is adding another keyboard to its peripheral portfolio. Dubbed the Trigger-Z, the keyboard is part of Cooler Master's 5-year-old CM Storm brand. Cooler Master is describes the Trigger-Z as a 'premium gaming hub and mechanical keyboard' but it's actually a successor to the Trigger mechanical keyboard the company released in June of 2012. 

The new Trigger-Z packs fully programmable macro and standard keys with profile management for up to five profiles and up to 75 macros thanks to 64 KB of onboard memory. It's also got integrated multimedia keys, built-in audio outputs, a detachable wrist rest, non-slip rubber coating, 14K gold plated ultra low latency USB connectors, and high-grade braided cable.

Cooler Master says the CM Storm Trigger-Z will be available in Cherry MX Brown, Red, and Blue switches, but offered no details on pricing or when we can expect this mechanical keyboard to be available. We'll keep you posted on launch details!

    14K Gold plated connectors? More of a reason to overprice it... *sigh*

    I like their decision to offer a wide selection of switches for their mechanical keyboards.

    Another mechanical keyboard. Give me NumPad-less backlit chiclet, I'm sold, otherwise GTFO. Too heavy, too loud.

    Heavy is good. And mechanical doesn't need to equal loud; that's why they offer the choice of different switches.

    If it's not $70 then it's overpriced.

    Razer's mechanical is down to $69.99 on Amazon..

    Going from a g15 to a ducky zero was the best decision keyboard wise I have ever made. It's good to see keyboards made to last coming back into fashion.

    Ive got cherry black switches in my steelseries keyboard and I can barely tell any tactile difference between it and a rubber dome keyboard other than the activation of the key happens when you barely touch the key. if it wasnt for the paint on it wearing off in 2 weeks I'd recommend it to everyone but as it is ... its just ok.
