Cooler Master Announces CM Storm Suppressor Gaming Keyboard

Cooler Master, a leading creator, innovator, and manufacturer of desktop components and peripherals, today announced the Suppressor, a keyboard tuned for gamers that enjoy being the silent assassin. Serious gamers take note; the Suppressor is well balanced to assist in deploying to each and every arena.

Suppressor is uniquely tuned to be your ideal tool for battle with a detachable USB cable for better and easier cable management and travel, a white LED light that keeps you gaming even in the darkest reaches of a LAN, silent membrane key switches equipped with a long life material to last through many skirmishes, and instant activation multimedia keys to activate your war songs. Add in its lightweight and durable design and Suppressor becomes a force to be reckoned with.The Suppressors LED backlight can be adjusted in 3 brightness levels or can be completely turned off. And for a more ergonomic gaming experience the Suppressor comes with a removable wrist rest in the box.

Advanced Gaming Power
Cleverly integrated into the Suppressor are features for when your game needs to be taken to the next level. A powerful 32-bit / 72 MHz ARM Rapid Engine is dedicated to executing macros. Up to 75 of which can be stored within 5 easily swappable profiles via built-in shortcut keys. That amounts to 15 macros per profile, ensuring there is plenty of room to customize your gaming experience within your most frequented games. All macros are saved on the Suppressors 128 kbs onboard memory so the keyboard is ready for plug and play use. Macros can be hardware recorded or with software that is downloadable from our website.

The CM Storm Suppressor will be available for Europe only in East Europe Region and in Russia for a suggested retail price of 45 euro. Price and availability may vary based on region. This release is meant for the East Europe and Russia region(s) only. The product will become available in Asia as of October but will follow in Russia and East Europe around December/January.

What do you expect for a $45 keyboard and only for certain regions only.

Placebo effect aside, until now I've never feel I perform better using mechanical keyboard (I own MX Red K70 but sometimes using logitech membrane keyboard in office for gaming).

Mechanical switches are way-overrated these days.

I, for once, will probably enjoy gaming and writing with this keyboard.

My Corsair K90 Mech Keyboard is really nice, but sometimes, ~:eek:~ I like to use my Apple Aluminum Keyboard for typing.

This CM keyboard seems like it will be fine for the price point.

Until it randomly disconnects from the PC thanks to the shoddy mini USB connected cable.
In fact the only time I ever detach the cable on my CM Storm is when it acts up and will not work properly.

I suspect that having back lit keyboard with integrated USB hub attached to one USB port is also part of the problem.
Even my cheap Lycosa has 2 USB cables and it has 1 USB port and a lot less LED's

Casual reminder that everyone is not you and people do have preferences...

I got it, you have a faulty CMSTORM keyboard. Been testing at least 5-6 models the past year or two and haven't had this problem.

Sometimes you can get unlucky. I had 2 faulty X99 motherboards (one had BIOS issues right from the start, the other was DOA). 3rd time lucky and I found one that works.

Although, my CMStorm trigger keeps disconnecting for a fraction of a second every few minutes (it doesn't really bother me though unless I'm typing up a law report or something for uni). It has been thoroughly used though so it doesn't surprise me that it is breaking.

Same thing mine does, it does really bother me when I'm in the middle of playing a game :(
