3 out of 5 eggsNot so much

Pros: Smooth crisp keystrokes, great feel, heavy so it doesn't move around.

Cons: Back light is INTENSE and can't turn it off, worked fine for about a month, then my W,S,L,I,H keys all developed a studder. So now I have a very destinctve typing style.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't Buy!

Pros: Simple layout and looks clean.

Cons: Double strikes after 6 months on multiple keys. Customer service is horrible. They know they have is problem by now yet they want the bad keyboard first before they send you one. If you want a replacement first them you must pay 90$ to have one sent to you then they refund it after they get the defective product back. So either way your going to have to pay more for their defective keyboard. Never buying from them again. This warranty was still valid.

2 out of 5 eggsDefective after 1 Year

Pros: Its a very reasonably priced mechanical keyboard and at the time I bought mine it did come with name brand MX cherry switches

Cons: The first 6 months of owning the keyboard, 2 of the keys actually broke under normal use, now a little over a year later half of my keys are double registering and some of them aren't registering at all.

Other Thoughts: I can't recommend buying this keyboard at all. I realize this is still under warranty but after reading through alot of reviews there is a ton of instances going on with the double typing and keys not registering. Whats odd is most people would blame this on the non MX cherry switches, but I have MX cherry switches and have the same exact problem. Stay away, this keyboard has a high defect rate.

Manufacturer Response:

1 out of 5 eggsLasted about a year

Pros: Solid feel, adjustable brightness for backlit keys. I was very happy with this keyboard for the first 10 months.

Cons: Just like the rest of the reviews showing up after owning the keyboard for about a year, some keys have been double-tapping. In other words, striking the "s" key once sometimes results in "ss" while you're typing. It was only happening with one key to start, but it seems to slowly be spreading to other keys.

Other Thoughts: I bought the keyboard when it was on sale for $69.99. Even at the sale price, to only have this keyboard last a year is disappointing. Their support seems to have no actual fix for the issue aside from replacing it. I can only assume the replacements are the same model that will have the same issue down the road.

1 out of 5 eggsStopped Functioning

Pros: Worked very well for < 1 year. Very responsive, good back lighting and felt smooth.

Cons: After around 8-12 months, every time I press a key, it triggers the key multiple times. If you're trying to type "hello", you might get "helloooo" or you might get "heeeeello". I take very good care of everything I own. I have a CM Storm for my gaming set up and bought this as a back up and for work (as a software developer). I even recommended this keyboard to others as I was very satisfied at first but beware, it is not worth the money if it goes bad in a year. Loved the product but would never buy from the company again after this. There is nothing worse than "misleading" produce, one you're satisfied with that is built poorly.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,
We apologize about the negative experience you have had with Thermaltake. It is never our intention to mislead our customers. Please contact Customer Service and we would be happy to replace the keyboard for you through warranty service.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Keyboard

Pros: Beautiful bright blue back lighting is very uniform across all the keys. Keys feel great. I've had this keyboard for one year now and have had absolutely no problems. I like the small overall size and the sturdy construction. It is heavier than most cheap keyboards which helps keep it in place on your desk.

Cons: When the back lighting is turned off, the symbols don't really show up all that well even with the room lights on, so you sort of have to always keep the back lighting on.

Other Thoughts: I use it with gaming too, but if you want a keyboard with programmable keys, well this isn't it.

2 out of 5 eggs10 months l8r

Pros: Numbers and letters have not rubbed off yet!
Still works most of the time.

Cons: Every once in a while now it types several letters together, instead of just one.

Other Thoughts: My kids oem keyboards are still going strong, with no errors.

1 out of 5 eggsKeys malfunction horribly

Pros: The keys are beautifully illuminated and pressing the keys feels great.

Cons: After about 9 months of ownership, this keyboard has become barely usable. Some keys, especially my "o" key, will either not register being pressed and require multiple, very hard slaps from my fingers, or will register two keystrokes when pressed, so I either wind up with missing keystrokes or duplicate keystrokes. (It took me 15 minutes just to write this small paragraph.) For $90 this keyboard was a complete waste of money. I will never under any circumstances purchase from this company again.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,
The Poseidon keyboard is backed by a 2 year warranty. Please contact Customer Service so we can have the entire keyboard replaced for you through warranty service.

2 out of 5 eggsWas nice for a few months

Pros: This is the first mechanical keyboard I've owned, so of course the difference is night and day. The tactile feedback, the sound and the lack of rollerover issues really set this keyboard apart from what I had been previously using.

I bought this keyboard with gaming in mind, but I also do a bit of work on it here and there, and it has been nice to use for both.

I've seen a few complaints about the backlight being too bright, particularly, the indicated LEDs for caps lock, etc (which cannot be dimmed, unlike the rest of the keyboard). However, I didn't really have any issues with this. Unless your head is hovering directly above the lights, it's not noticeable at all.

Cons: I purchased this keyboard in May (5 months ago, at the time of writing this review) and over the past few weeks, I've noticed intermittent (but very obvious) issues with keyboard chatter.

My "E" key is the one that's really giving me the most trouble. At first I thought I was going crazy, but the rate at which I was seeing double ee's actually prompted me to do a search on this issue. I've also experienced issues with a few of the other keys (a and t have been the main culprits).

I expected issues much late in the product's life, but only 5 months of use is hardly the lifespan I expected.

Other Thoughts: From what I've read, it isn't too difficult to replace the switches in some keyboards, so I'll be looking into that before I make my next purchase, but overall, I expected more from this keyboard. Obviously it's cheaper than some other mechanical keyboards, which is nice if you don't run into any issues, but at the moment, all the benefits of having a mechanical keyboard are so overshadowed by this annoying key chattering that I'd honestly be happier using my old one.

Maybe this is a just a fluke, so if you're willing to take a risk (or willing/able to replace the switches) then this board might be an okay purchase. Next time I'll be paying closer attention to what other people are saying and how often these type issues show up in the reviews. It seems to have been an issue for the MX Blue version of this board, but less so for this model.
