Cooler Master Storm Trigger Appears on Taiwanese Store  

Member Moderator

As far as I know, Cooler Master never gave any indication to the Storm Trigger's release date but apparently it isn't too far off. This Taiwanese website has it listed. Cherry MX Red switch model.

The QuickFire Rapid appeared in Taiwanese stores several months before it came available in the US, but we'll see how long the wait is this time. For those unfamiliar with the Trigger, it is Cooler Master's highest end mechanical keyboard. Full red LED backlit, 5 macro keys with on-the-fly recording via onboard memory (so this can easily be banned at tournaments), dual USB 2.0 ports, gold-plated Cherry MX mechanical switches (red, black, brown, or blue switch), rubber coating, detachable wrist-rest, and more. I think it will only be available in USB though.

Hopefully one of us gets a chance to review it. This was actually the first keyboard CM announced, although it might be the last one to arrive. The QuickFire Rapid is already available in Asia, Austrailia, and the US and it did very well in my review. They announced the QuickFire Pro later on - a partially LED backlit 104-key board available in the same switch types, with an MSRP of $99.99. So the Trigger makes #3.
