Tt eSPORTS Challenger Prime Gaming Keyboard Overview
The Challenger Prime has a pretty aggressive look to it. It is all black, as most gaming keyboards are. It is a full-sized keyboard with a full compliment of keys and a full number pad. There are also some multimedia keys, which we will get into here shortly.
This keyboard is a membrane keyboard, so no mechanical keys here, this is one of the ways Tt eSPORTS is able to keep the price of the keyboard so low. Upon initial inspection the keys have quite a lot of give to them.
Starting on the left side of the keyboard there are six dedicated macro keys (T1 – T6), of course you will be able to set these to whatever macro or binding you like in the software.
Moving up to the top of the board there is a row of shortcut and multimedia keys. These include M1-M3, My Computer, e-mail, home, play/pause, back, forward, volume up, volume down and mute. There is also a dial at the top center of the keyboard that will allow you to adjust the brightness of the backlighting.
Looking at the keyboard from the side we can see that all of the keys are angled the same way, which is slightly down, but almost flat. Typically we see more of an angle on gaming keyboards, so we will have to see how these keys feel after hours of use. There are pop-out feet that give you height adjustment and a better angle for the keyboard to sit if needed.
Flipping the keyboard over we can see those pop-out feet and there are also 4 large rubber feet that will keep the keyboard from moving around on your desk during use. You will also notice 9 holes in the keyboard, this is part of its anti-spill design. So with a membrane keyboard, if you happen to spill a drink your keys could become sticky etc. With this design the liquid will actually drain out of the keyboard.
Looking at the USB cable, it is nicely braided which I always like to see on gaming products.
