CM Storm Trigger Keyboard Review

Hardware Secrets Golden Award

Introduction (Cont’d)

On the right upper edge, the user can find four connections: two USB ports (to hook up other peripherals like a gaming mouse or a digital headset), a mini-USB/USB plug, and a DC 5V power connector for an external power adapter (not included) to complement the energy from the two 5V USB ports.

The underside features six rubber feet and two plastic feet that can be flipped down. The CM Trigger comes with a detachable wrist rest with a rubberized coating that can be attached by three flimsy latches. Attaching it is a bit tricky and gives the impression that the latches will break, so the user has to be careful. Unlike the QuickFire Pro, there are no cutouts to help route the cable on the underside.

The peripheral comes with a cloth wrapped and gold plated mini-USB/USB cable. There is no installation CD, so the user must download the configuration software from CM Storm’s website.
