Tt eSPORTS CHALLENGER Pro

Hailey H., Newegg
2 July 2015
  • Pros: Nothing at all. The color is nice.
  • Cons: Cheapest keyboard I have ever used and ordered. Thermaltake needs to work on quality control because I have received two defective keyboards in a row where one or two keys don't work at all. Is not worth a second of your time look for a better brand because these guys are a hoax.

Good for gaming, but not much else

Anonymous, Newegg
19 September 2014
  • Summary: I've had this for a year - and while I didn't love it, it wasn't this bad at first. Time for a new keyboard.
  • Pros: Soft Keys, bright backlight, versitile key functionality
  • Cons: keys stick - while this hasn't been an issue for gaming, I can't even type an email without the keys sticking. Is the backlight supposed to change color? There is a multi-color indicator, but they keys remain red only. Don't really care about this, as it lights up. Frequently need to unplug and r...

Good style and performance.

Thomas S., Newegg
11 April 2014
  • Summary: Overall great board - I would recommend it.
  • Pros: The red/black looks really good and the LED backlight is awesome. A lot of backlit keyboards don't have great illumination, but the Challenger does. I love the feel of the board. For a non-mech board, it rocks. It feels great. There are customization options on 10 macro keys that come in handy. Y...
  • Cons: It always comes unplugged. The usb connection in the back of the keyboard comes out with the slightest tug. It's only happened to me 2-3 times so far. Not a huge deal, but loses an egg. Also - the mini-fan that is included blows from what looks like the back. It's set up as most PC fans, but I th...

Greak Keyboard, Aweful Keys

Collin N., Newegg
11 March 2014
  • Summary: I talked about the fan, but honestly I never found the need or want to use the fan.
  • Pros: *This keyboard is pretty solid for the price. *It comes with a fan attachment to cool your hands. *It's back-lit keys are great for gaming in dim light of for people who want to ruin your eyes. *adds 2 external USB ports.
  • Cons: *You can't adjust the light intensity on the back-lighting without running the program that comes with the driver. *The fan is mostly silent but without headphones its a bit annoying. *The additional USB ports on the keyboard do not provide enough power to charge a phone or other various USB atta...

Pretty Good

Nathan D. Phillips, Amazon

  • Summary: I believe for the money there is better keyboards out there. But it still looks cool and all. It wount let you press 3 buttons at the same time so if im running in battlefield i have to stop to change my weapon.

Broken within a year

Paul Chua, Amazon
20 December 2013
  • Summary: The maker claim this a Pro keyboard? They must be joking. I used it for playing D3 and the shift button simply broke into 2! And I consider myself a gentle player who doesn't take it out on the keyboard when I lose. Definitely wouldn't advise anyone to get this keyboard!

Have Had One For Nearly Two Years

BizzBuz, Newegg
10 December 2013
  • Summary: The little cooling fan was a great idea in theory. However after using the fan on my first keyboard only once I really didn’t see the need for such a design. It really doesn’t move any noticeable amount of air so I didn’t find that it “cooled” my hand by any measurable amount.
  • Pros: The first one of these keyboards that I have has been used for close to two years. It is still going strong and only replaced it to have a new one again. I have used the original keyboard for many different typing tasks such as; PC gaming, college classwork, forum posting, and article writing. It...
  • Cons: USB ports; as many have stated, they are not very useful for much other than a standard USB mouse. As some have pointed out, some of the boards have had an issue with the macro keys. People have complained that they have to be “mashed” down in order to work properly. I did not find this issue wit...
