PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH



At first glance, the Challenger Pro looks pretty tame. It has an attractive glossy black finish, but it's not so shiny that it will show fingerprints every time you touch it. Let's take a closer look at what makes this product stand out.



The keys have slightly curved tops that produce a smooth, soft click when pressed. The key depth seems to be just about right, but I'll reserve judgment until further testing. The W A S D cluster and the arrow keys can be swapped out for red ones to create a look that stands out.



Any PC gamer can attest to the frustration caused by accidentally pressing the Windows key while in a game. It is possible to disable this key through a registry edit, but Thermaltake has an easier solution - they included "dead" replacements for both Windows keys which, when used, renders the Windows keys useless.
