Conclusion: After several days of using ThermalTake’s eSports Challenger Pro/Ultimate keyboard, I can tell you I certainly do not want to go back to my old Logitech Wave. I really like the low-profile, light-weight keys -- they’re a lot quieter and easier to press, without being so delicate that you...
Thermaltake eSports Challenger Gaming Keyboard Pro Review and Unboxing[video]
18 May 2011
Excerpt: Thermaltake eSports sent TekGoblin a package with the Thermaltake Challenger Gaming Keyboard Pro inside. My first impression of this keyboard was it being just another run-of-the-mill keyboard.
Conclusion: The Challenger Pro is a niche keyboard. If you are looking for a keyboard with a fan, the Challenger Pro is a no-brainier. If you are looking for a keyboard with a backlight and macro keys, the Challenger Pro has a strong black and red theme and 10 programmable keys with 4 profiles for a total of 40...
Summary: If you type by touch, and have an older keyboard, it will take a little time to get used to the Challenger Pro keyboard due to its unique layout. However, once you get familiar with it, it may be one of the best keyboards to have.
Pros: » Very responsive, » Red Back lit keys can be turned off, » Includes replacement red keys for movement keys (arrows, W, A, S, D), » Macro capable
Cons: » Fan is about useless as it moves very little air, » Keyboard layout takes a little getting used to, » Macro entry limited to 10 characters and no Enter key, » No ergonomic version
Excerpt: Overall, Thermaltake has left me impressed with the Challenger Pro gaming keyboard. It's well designed with rugged construction and features that will appeal to gamers such as replacement W A S D and arrow keys, a hand cooling fan, and even “dummy” covers for those pesky Windows keys.
Summary: The included software allows you to set up the 10 different macro keys with specific timed macros, the ability to launch programs with a touch of a button, or assign basic key functions as well.
Pros: High Quality Keyboard, Nice soft, adjustable back-lighting, Great keystroke feel, Macro + saved to on-board memory
Cons: Function & top row keys are too small, Top left macro key is easy to hit and mistake for "Escape" key.
