When I received Thermaltake’s Tt Esports Challenger Prime keyboard I was of two minds… I was, of course, willing to give it a fair hearing, but moving from an expensive Logitech G510 to a budget keyboard I anticipated a very unpleasant few weeks of testing.

Of course, this keyboard is of a different league that my previous one and so I shouldn’t be too hard on it; it’s still membrane based but substantially cheaper which will go in its favour and seeming very few differences in terms of everyday use. Yet with something as personal as a choice of keyboard it was going to take a few weeks of proper use to get a fair outcome, to let my fingers forget my Logitech G510 and see the Tt Esports Challenger Prime in its own light, and so I tried to keep an open mind as the testing period began.

But before I delve into my experiences of Thermaltake’s new offering to the budget gaming market let’s have a look at the specs and features.

The official spec sheet from Thermaltake above doesn’t really make for inspiring reading, no audio pass through, no USB pass through, no cable management, but what’s not immediately apparent is just how fully featured this keyboard is considering the price at less than £30.

Let us take a closer look at the Tt Esports Challenger Prime and investigate those features.
