Themaltake Challenger Pro

The keyboard itself reminds me of early renditions of the Saitek Eclipse. It has a matt black theme to it, with some red highlights around the wrist rest and a large logo in the centre of it.

The red areas, as well as the backs of the keys are lit up in a hardcore gaming red when the board is powered on.

Along the left and right edges of the Challenger Pro are five macro keys. These can be given pre-programmed instructions or given macro control with the bundled software.

Popping the keys out we can see that this keyboard utilises rubber domes. These are about the cheapest methods of input for a keyboard so will help keep the cost down, but they don’t have the greatest shelf life. For a full run down of keyboard input materials and methods check out Overclock.net.

At the extreme left and right (at the top) of this board you’ll find little rubber stoppers. This is where the fan goes. The small plastic nubs to the side are purely for aesthetics; they’re a bit odd really.

The keys have quite a nice curved feel to them. The lettering, I’m pretty sure, is laser embossed. Not bad but may rub off with time.

The underside features some flip out feet which help stabilise the board as you type, as well as changing the angle to a more comfortable one.

The front has some small rubber feet to further prevent the board slipping across your tabletop.

There’s also a little slot in area for the USB cable to go to keep it tidied away. I assume this will also help prevent it getting accidently getting yanked out.

Don’t want the fan in action all the time? Slot it away in this handy compartment. The only problem is it’s not held in by anything, so could surely fall out quite easily?
