As you can no doubt tell, PC Perspective got a HUGE and much needed facelift over the weekend to what we are internally calling "PC Perspective v4.0".  I know there are still some kinks to work out and we are actively addressing any feedback from our readers in this comment thread.  

But we want to celebrate the launch of the new site in style!!  Some of our site sponsors have very generously offered up some prizes for us to give out throughout the coming days...

The third set of prizes is a pair of Thermaltake esports Challenger Ultimate Gaming Keyboard!

View Full Size

These babies have just about everything you want on a keyboard and probably more.  Backlight? Check.  On-board audio jacks and USB ports?  Yup.  A FAN??? Yessir.

What do you have to do to win this wonderful piece of hardware?

Couldn't be easier: post a comment in this post thanking Thermaltake for its sponsorship of PC Perspective as well as what you want to see most on your next keyboard.  I want a drink holder. 

You should probably have a registered account or at least be sure you include your email address in the appropriate field so we can contact you!

We will pick the winners tomorrow and move on to the next hardware that finds its way to PC Perspective offices.  Good luck and thanks for reading!!

USB 3.0 Is not necessary for a keyboard

Thank you so much Thermaltake for sponsoring PC Perspective. As for what I want in the keyboard? Well ... what else? :P

But seriously I want a keyboard with integrated cooling fans. My palms get sweaty after a couple of hours playing Crysis 2 so this would definitely help . Ohhh and add a cup warmer for my coffee ;)

Thanks for sponsoring PC Perspective! After looking over all the different features that come with the Challenger, I find myself unable to think of a thing that you guys might have missed with it's design! Two things that I'm always looking for in gaming keyboards is the incredibly quiet keys and durable rubber stoppers on the bottom. Hoping to win one of these so I can put up a review of it on YouTube, but even if I don't win, I might have to still go out and purchase one.

Keep up the fantastic work.

Thanks Thermaltake for this keyboard that I'll be getting. I want a long LCD screen on a keyboard that displays the HUD of the game instead of being displayed on your monitor. That way you'll have a better view on your games.

Thank you Thermaltake for your sponsorship of PC Perspective. What I would like to see on the next keyboard is LCD buttons so you could change the font of each key and change the characters it's set to or even set pictures to each key. There could be some cool effects added to it like an equalizer and what-not.

Thanks Thermaltake!

I want a Level 10 on my next keyboard. :D

And a software kit that helps with word editing, allowing you to map special characters, etc.

Double posted FTW!

Thanks Thermaltake for being a proud sponsor of PCPer. You are in good hands.

For the ultimate keyboard, I want one that is spill-proof and dust-proof. I also want it to vibrate to remind me of an event or task that I need to do.

Thanks TT and PCPer!

Let's just get on with the touchscreen gaming keyboards already!

Thank you ThermalTake (Tt):). for your support of the PC Perspectives site and I"m sure we all appreciate it it - I know I do. I would like to see a USB plug-in on the keyboard...but, it has them:). So, hmm, maybe a cool countdown timer (could be used in many gaming circumstances)..wait, it has that as well...hmm. A docking remote control unit? (I mean it has everything else and kitchen sinks are too cumbersome:)

tyvm Thermaltake,

Thank you Thermaltake and PC Perspective for this giveaway. I want to see a keyboard that is dust/dirt proof.

I want to see some sort of interactive, full color, touchscreen LCD panel. I think that adding that to a keyboard would provide an advanced interaction with your computer that you are not able to have without other touch type modules.

I would like to thank Thermaltake for sponsoring PCPERSPECTIVE's site and this mini giveaway, you guys really did a great job sponsoring worldwide events(OOF4 rocks!), sites, and giveaways(Yay! Big thanks for giving me one of your awesome Crimson Red Jackets!). I would also like to thank you for giving us gamers some of the gaming industry's best eSports gears:

-TtEsports MEKA G1(Expensive, yes... But it's worth the price!)
-TtEsports Black mouse(Light, accurate, claw and palm grip friendly mouse. Gotta love it.)
-TtEsports Dasher(Large and silky smooth pad, built to last!)
-Shock gaming headset(Got this one on my head)

Thank you so much Thermaltake, without you I wouldn't have such wonderful gaming gears. You guys really rocks!

Continuing with PCPERSPECTIVE's giveaway: What do I want to see most on my next gaming keyboard? Hmmmn... that's a tough question, bec. I am pretty contented with my MEKA G1. But, (Life always have "buts".) if you're referring to a product that is yet to be developed, then I would suggest the following:

-Programmable Windows button: Windows button is a real killer. Have it programmed like pressing it for 4 seconds disables it.
-Higher CFM/RPM fans if you would like to continue to create keyboards with fans. Put it inside the upper most part of the keyboard, so that vents will take care of the airflow. Don't forget to put dust filters :)

I'd like to thank PCPERSPECTIVE too... Great reviews and articles. Gotta explore the forums next! THat's all guys!

Thanks Thermaltake without your support of pcper we wouldn't get the best pc hardware podcast on the net. Not to mention your awesom cooling products that have allowed me to get my geek on by overclocking my pc to within an inch of it's life, keep up the good work

April 21, 2011 | 04:36 AM - Posted by Rword

Thanks for the support Thermaltake! This is a great looking key board. I would like to see customizable buttons in my next board..

April 21, 2011 | 04:46 AM - Posted by VeryInterestedO...

Thanks Thermaltake and PCPer. Would love a self cleaning feature & TV remote control. Save me the trouble of cleaning all the dust every week or so and never having to get off my lazy butt.

Thanks ThermalTake, great looking product!

Thank you Thermaltake for this giveaway. This keyboard would make a good companion to the Level 10 GT case.

What I would like to see on my keyboard is "Xbox360 Controller Dock". Yup no need of letting my controller just lay around my room. I could just pop it onto a clip or sumthing on my keyboard itself! or a "Generic Mouse Stand" that kind support holding a mouse. or a "Quick Shutdown/Restart/Log off button"
Another feature would be "Force feedback" from any of the user selected buttons to enhance gaming!

gratitude to Thermaltake & PCPerdotcom.I would like to see keyboards have a 'transporter' button kinda like what Scotty presses in Star Trek!

how about a water resistant and easy to clean keyboard... I could just wash her out in the sink or the like .
