Keyboards are as integral to your PC as just about anything else in it, and here at XSR we’re determined to give you the best advice on just what keyboard is best for you.

You can’t fault Thermaltake here, they know how to make a box worth looking at. Sometimes the actual packaging design can help sell the product, and perhaps that’s what Thermaltake are aiming for with this box.
The reverse is just as good as the front as well!
And a flip top lid. Superb!
But what’s this inside the box? A damned keyboard carry-bag? That’s awesome, especially since I frequently travel to LAN parties.
