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...

Loose powerline

Anonymous, Newegg
10 July 2013
  • Pros: Good for some macroing, good for the extra light, not extremely loud when typing
  • Cons: The power connection is one small line with a poorly designed structure which makes it fall out and wiggle very easily. I've tried taping it and cutting into the plastic to make it not move but still it causes me problems. Wouldn't recommend if you move very much.

Alright gaming keyboard

Donna S., Newegg
19 March 2013
  • Summary: I would choose a 3 1/2 eggs. Overall good product . I wouldn't spend 70$ though on it. Got it when it was on sale.
  • Pros: Looked pretty good online, heard good things about this keyboard.... Its alright nothing special. Nothing too pro about this that I should state. -2 USB ports intergrated in the keyboard. :D -Comes with a keyboard case and extra keys. -Keys are soft.
  • Cons: Enter bottom is a little sticky, not too much of a problem. Fan likes to turn off (to solve this you need to keep pushing down on the fan). LED's arnt as bright as you imagine. Theres the option of off, 25% which is like nothing. 75% is also like nothing. 100% is alright but could be brighter. Th...

Good and bad

Andrew L., Newegg
12 November 2012
  • Summary: Seems to have odd power issues and certain keys for me began to stick(not mechanically) and spam their inputs. I tried to contact TT directly, but their technique was to ignore my request entirely. Sadly, they are the only game in town for this style of keyboard and I will be forced to buy another.
  • Pros: Nearly silent Good non mechanical for those who don't want mechanical Comfortable Fast Accurate Good aesthetics
  • Cons: Non existant customer server Keys started malfunctioning after 2 years USB ports work 80% of the time from sleep wakeup Keyboard randomly goes dead on sleep wakeup anywhere from 10 second to 2 minutes Garbage software

I like it...BUT!

  • Summary: I would give this 4 eggs, but my shift key breaking straight down the middle, may indicate a poor design. Perhaps the key just had freak flaw. Love to get some feedback from Thermaltake.
  • Pros: Red keys are great, backlight, easy macros
  • Cons: half the macro keys are useless, 5 on the right and 5 on the left. My shift key split in half! - no i did not pound it, just normal use.

Ugh...

30 September 2012
  • Summary: i was really wanting to like this keyboard when i got it and kinda like some of the features but the other numerous quirks just make it not worth the value
  • Pros: works fairly well lights are nice at night detachable cable a fan??
  • Cons: this keyboard was bought as a replacement for a Microsoft sidewinder x6 gaming keyboard that died and looked promising....... i wont go on a big sch-peal about all the things i don't like about it but i will mention my biggest beef with it: the software very slow and almost unresponsive at certai...

A Good Gaming Keyboard, Not So Good Typing Keyboard

DJ D., Newegg
15 June 2012
  • Summary: The Challenger Pro is highly recommended to gamers who are looking for a keyboard with some bling and extra goodies. For those looking for a keyboard to be primarily used for work/typing with only a small amount of gaming being done, then I don’t recommend it (unless of course you like these keys).
  • Pros: Pros: Excellent For Gaming GUI Is Easy To Use And Pretty Powerful The Red LED Lighting Looks Quite Good The Cooling Fan Is Not Gimmicky, And Is Quite Useful USB 2.0 Ports Are A Nice Addition
  • Cons: Cons: Not Enjoyable To Type On Laptop-Style Keys Are Icky A Bit Too Expensive In My Mind (At $79.99 Retail)

Challenger Pro

Charles B., Newegg
5 February 2012
  • Summary: Overall this is a decent keyboard. It has lots of features and customizable options. I think I will try something different in the future, however.
  • Pros: Nice adjustable back-lighting. Comes with an array of customizable options. Ten Macro keys. USB ports.
  • Cons: My main complaint with this product is the software. It takes quite awhile for the program to load, which I find strange. The software is decent, although, as it lets you customize the keyboard. Not the most comfortable, the wrist-rest should be larger. Not my favorite for typing as well. The Tt ...

good concepts bad execution

Anonymous, Newegg
28 November 2011
  • Summary: while the keyboard body may feel sturdy i wish it was the same with the keys themselves. they are thin plastic and while tryin to remove the up arrow key with the include key remover the key broke, i was switchin them out for the red ones anyways so i dont feel its worth the time to RMA the entire...
  • Pros: cool red backlight matches my Tt Dasher mouse pad and red LEDs in my PC chassis, mini hand fan gimmick, 10 macros keys, onboard profile saves. keyboard body seems sturdy. thick sturdy braided USB cable, removable USB cable, storage bags for everything to keep em from scratching while traveling, 2...
  • Cons: thin flimsy keys, software is a lil slow to load, no place to store the dust caps for the fan ports when the fan is plugged in so u can easily lose them if youre not careful.wrist rest could be a lil bigger, the fan doesnt really securely fit inside the KB when its put away so it can fall out whe...
