A keyboard is a keyboard right? Thermaltake is betting against that school of thought with their Challenger Pro keyboard. Being of the eSports series, this keyboard was designed with gamers in mind with specific functions tailored to their needs. It is the big brother of the standard Challenger keyboard with additional features. While you can play games on most any keyboard, Thermaltake has stepped this keyboard up and has included some expanded functions that most other keyboards cannot offer. Below are a few feature bullet points Thermaltake touts for this unit:

• Backlit (red) keys
• Unique hand cooling fan
• 64k Onboard memory for macro storage
• 10 independent macro keys with four individual game profiles
• Two Extra USB ports
• “Dummy” key caps for the Windows key

The Challenger Pro also includes all of the features that are common to similar keyboards. The Challenger Pro has few unique features that should pique just about anyone's interest such as the hand cooling fan and the keycaps. The keyboard is currently selling for about $55 which puts it at a lower price point than many competing products of this class.

Let's move ahead and take a closer look at this new eSports offering.
