CM Storm Novatouch TKL Review
Those of us who consider the keyboard to be a little more than something that just takes up desk space might be considered slightly quirky by the majority of people who pass the OC3D world. Importantly though we understand that to the outsider all keyboards all the same and which one you choose doesn't matter, there are tons of subtle differences which make them endlessly interesting.
Today's review is the CM Storm Novatouch TKL. This combines a couple of things that aren't commonly found on keyboards into an otherwise no frills affair. Rather than focussing on the icing, Cooler Master have concentrated entirely upon the cake. Or, for those of you so full of festive foodstuff that you don't care for metaphors, this is all about the switches.
Cherry MX switches appear everywhere and it's almost impossible to purchase a mechanical keyboard that doesn't come equipped with them. Until now.
CM Storm have equipped the Novatouch with some Hybrid Capacitive switches which eliminates the mechanical side of things to greatly reduce the strain upon your fingers whilst still providing the joyful typing experience that we've come to love. At least that's the theory. The other major feature is the size, as a tenkeyless design it's definitely one for those of you with either extremely restricted desk space or a hatred of the numpad.
