CM Storm Octane Gaming Gear Combo Review

The Keyboard
The keyboard that comes with the Octane kit is known as the “MB7C”. Since this is an entry-level keyboard yo do not have mechanical switches, but rather a membrane design. All of the key on the keyboard are backlit, which we will cover a little later in the review. One of the first things you will notice when looking at the keyboard is the enlarged space bar which as a little bit of an angle on it which makes it larger on the one end. The keyboard has an all-black color scheme going, the keys have a matte coating which adds some grip to the keys.

The bottom of the keyboard has some nice rubber feet and a carbon fiber looking pattern.

The side of the keyboard you can see the cut out design. The first picture has the keyboard at its normal angle as the second picture has the keyboard with its feet up. Here you can see how your fingers will sit in both modes.
