Thermaltake TT eSPORTS Challeger Pro Gaming Keyboard Review

When was the last time that you upgraded your keyboard? The Tt eSPORTS CHALLENGER Pro Series keyboards has red backlighting, 10 Macro keys and even has a cooling fan on it!

What I liked most about the Thermaltake TT eSPORTS Challenger Pro keyboard was its ability to load up to four different profiles. In Starcraft II, this gave me the ability to use the same key to produce units regardless of which race (Terran, Protoss, or Zerg) I was playing. Being able to adjust the timing of the macro key is another feature which I thought was very cool. I also liked the overall keyboard look and feel and the ability to adjust the LED back light illumination of the keys. It’s got a nice long detachable USB cable and carry bags for both the keyboard and cable making it easy to transport to a friends house or to a competition.

Would anyone actually use those macro keys on the right side?

I wish they would stop putting extra macro keys on the sides that you cant hit without leaving WASD or the Mouse, and put some below the spacebar which you could easily hit with your thumb.

What they ought to do is put macros on a little detachable keypad that will attach to either the right or the left based on the users preference. Shouldn't cost more than about $10US extra to do something like that.
I have come to the conclusion that "FaceBook" should be renamed "FacePalm" :roll:

Left handed players like myself would use them. It's very difficult to find a keyboard which can be used by lefthanded players - I started gaming using the numeric keys and despite trying several times just haven't been able to retrain...

My only question is can the default keys be overwritten and does it include odds keys like numlock...
