THIS DISCONTINUATION NOTICE DOES NOT AFFECT THE WIDER RANGE OF STORM USB COMPATIBLE KEYBOARDS, WHICH CONTINUE TO BE MANUFACTURED AND AVAILABLE.

Product Upgrade

In accordance with Storm’s policy of continual product improvement, the use of white keytops with dark contrasting, laser marked keytop characters, has been widely implemented across the Storm keyboard range. This improved specification has been tested and field proven to provide a more durable keytop graphic with superior contrast and readability. Keyboards with these improved characteristics will now be offered as the standard specification for Storm keyboards.

Keyboards featuring black keytops (as listed below) will be manufactured only as special orders and for as long as existing stock of critical components remain.

(Please note: An X in the part number represents any character or additional sequence of characters.)

2210 Keyboards with black keys
Part-numbers 2210-2520X

2210 Trackerball keyboards with black keys
Part-numbers 2210-2522X

2212 Keyboards with black keys
Part-numbers 2212-2521X
Part-numbers 2212-2522X

Existing stocks of Storm keyboards, as detailed in this notice, continue to be fit for purpose, to meet the published specification and to be suitable for sale.

It is our objective that these new products will further enhance the range of Storm interface devices; ensuring that, from within the range of Storm products, our customers will find human interface devices that perfectly meet their current and emerging requirements.
