Tt eSPORTS Poseidon Z RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review


Tt eSPORTS Poseidon Z RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

Are you looking for an RGB mechanical keyboard without the crazy looks and without the silly price? The Tt eSPORTS Poseidon Z RGB might be up your alley. Thermaltake released the modest looking monocolor backlit Poseidon Z keyboard last year with a fairly low price for a mechanical keyboard. It was also a change from many of the many other gaudier looking Tt eSPORTS keyboards some which also had questionable seemingly unnecessary features, yet the simpler looking Poseidon Z looked good with its more minimalist design. The Poseidon Z RGB is an RGB version of that keyboard that looks to shake up the market with a repeat of that clean look and lean priceTt eSPORTS Poseidon Z RGB

We previously reviewed the original Poseidon Z with favorable comments. Though this new RGB version looks mostly the same, the insides are different and a good number of new features have been introduced. The Poseidon Z RGB features RGB Kailh mechanical switches in a choice of either tactile Brown (KB-PZR-KBBRUS-01) or clicky Blue (KB-PZR-KLBRUS-01), fully programmable keys, on-board memory, five profiles, N-key rollover up from six on the original, and a switch for disabling the Windows and now also the CTRL key. The Poseidon Z RGB comes with a generous five year warranty and can be found on Amazon for $97.99 shipped.
