A Closer Look
The keyboard is finish in a high quality black plastic with a durable chassis with very little trim around the edge, which should save you a little desk space.
All the key caps are removable and very high quality with a custom font. There is a slight curve to the key layout from front to back, but it is very subtle.
Around the back is a small CM Storm logo and a USB connection port for hooking it up to your computer.
The keyboard has a few settings built into it that you can tweak on the fly, at the top of the number pad you’ll find you can change the polling rate.
At the top are multimedia short-cuts, these can be accessed via the Fn shift key.
Pull the key cap and you’ll find the superb Cherry MX Blue switches, as you can see these are not LED lit like many other mechanical keyboards, but this is one think that has helped keep the price low without impacting performance.
The custom keycaps clip into place easy enough and while I have put these on the WASD keys, you could place them pretty much anywhere on the keyboard, such as on the up, down, left and right arrow keys.
