3 out of 5 eggsKeys double strike

Pros: Small factor allows it to fit in my laptop bag. Mechanical keys work well, at least at first. The illuminated keys are really bright, and adjustable including off.

Cons: After a while, the keys start to double strike. This makes the keyboard rather useless. The mechanical keys are not Cherry MX switches, this may be the reason they fail.

Other Thoughts: The lights may be too bright, I use the lowest setting the most.

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.

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.
