We have been seeing a lot of companies who specialize in high end cooling solutions such as cases or heat-sinks, start to dip into the peripheral market. Today there is such a high demand for high end keyboards, mice, headsets, etc, that it was smart for Thermaltake to move into the market. When the eSports lineup of gaming gear launched, we saw a whole new lineup of gaming grade peripheral gear coming from Thermaltake including the eSPORTS Challenger Keyboard.
Thermaltake has always been a large supporter of the World Cyber Games, so when developing their eSPORTS lineup including the Challenger Gaming Keyboard, they listened to what gamers wanted, and encorperated that into a brand new affordable lineup. Affordable yes, but that doesn't mean that it's lacking any features. The Challenger keyboard comes with all the unique features you would find on a typical high end keyboard such as Anti Ghosting, Macros, Internal RAM, and up to 5 customizable profiles, all this alongside some of Thermaltake's newly designed features.
As for the Challenger lineup of gaming keyboards, there are currently three flavors, The Challenger, Challenger Pro, and the Challenger Ultimage. Each adding more features with each version. In this review we will be reviewing the top-tier version The Challenger Ultimate.
