The basic specs of this keyboard are pretty standard - it uses a USB connection and has a full set of keys including a 10-key number pad. Unlike some other keyboards though, the wrist rest on the Challenger Pro is not detachable.
Only a quick look inside the box is needed to see that this is much more than an ordinary keyboard. The Challenger Pro is protected by a fairly well made cloth carrying pouch, and all the smaller accessories are packaged in their own cloth pouches too.
Accessories are plentiful and include an extra set of both W A S D and arrow keys, a key removal tool, cooling fan, USB cord, instruction manual, warranty information, and a software CD. Pricing on this keyboard is approximately $60 US from online retailers.
