CM Storm MECH Aluminium Gaming Review

  • Brand: CM Storm
  • Model: MECH
  • RRP: £129.99

CM Storm are well known gaming arm of Cooler Master, having produced many peripherals and cases all aimed at the gamers out there. We’ve reviewed many products for CM Storm now, with the majority of them being high quality and decent performing products for the cost. CM Storm have recently launched a new range of gaming peripherals aimed towards the higher end of the marketing dubbed the “Aluminium Gaming Series”. These new products consist of keyboard, mouse and headset, all with a similar theme and target market. We have recently reviewed the Pulse-R Aluminium Gaming Headset which scored well, so today we will be taking a look at MECH mechanical keyboard.

Mechanical keyboards are renowned across the peripherals market as being the best keyboards going, in both terms of performance and build quality, although they often come with high price tag. The different types of Cherry MX switches means there is a switch type for nearly everyone, and with each switch offering a lifetime of around 50 million keystrokes, mechanical keyboards often takes precedence over it’s rubber-dome cousins. These mechanical keyboards are increasing in popularity with gamers, especially with the professionals, as most have better anti-ghosting capabilities and NKRO, making them ideal for competitive gaming.

The MECH is CM Storm’s latest product to hit this market, boasting many features that a gamer would want and need during those matches. CM Storm have a great feedback system for their products and in the past we have seen them re-release their products having made changes that their customers have put forwards, so because of this, I’m expecting great things from them with the MECH.
