5 out of 5 eggsVery impressed so Far

This review is from: Tt eSPORTS Poseidon Z Illuminated Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Blue Switches

Pros: Price
Design, sturdy solid plastic, weighty

The blue switches on this are surprisingly good. I use it 9+hours daily for work and can't tell the difference between my other mechanical keyboards. I actually prefer these Khail switches over Cherry MX Reds. Yes I know they are dramatically different types, but these blue switches are very impressive. Compared to the similar Razer switches, the TTesports switches are much lighter and clicky feeling. I haven't typed this well on any other keyboard, and I have tried almost all of the Cherry switches. Had blue, black, brown, then red. I do not have a direct comparison between these and Cherry Blues though, but they really are not that different from what I remember. Even if they are a little bit different, I don't think the Cherry switches are really worth $20+ more. I have not had any problems using this keyboard for 9+ hours a day for work. I have never typed more accurately or comfortably, next to Cherry Blues, which these emulate pretty darn perfectly.

Cons: I thought some keys felt different than others, but that was just me being super paranoid like everyone else.

no wrist rest! :-(

Other Thoughts: After using it daily, I have not noticed any keys different enough than any other to stand out and make me notice them. It is possible there are some uniformity issues with the switches, but none that I can notice while using it every day. Just buy the keyboard. You won't regret it. If you have any issues, there is something called an exchange or RMA. Every piece of computer hardware has this risk regardless of the brand, so get over it. Don't give a product a bad rating because you received a defective one, which will Always eventually happen no matter what. Buy this. Give it a try and you will be pleasantly surprised.

My only other thoughts are if there is a Cherry MX Blue keyboard at the same price, get the Cherry, but if you are trying to save some cash and there are not any Cherry keyboards similar in price, get this. Even though I do not think there are any REAL WORLD differences between Khail and Cherry.
German vs Chinese. Yea I know.
"The terrible Chinese are coming to make terrible keyboards!"
Get over it and start saving some money by buying these switches.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat keyboard! But having some problems with it.

This review is from: Tt eSPORTS Poseidon Z Illuminated Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Blue Switches

Pros: -Price is great compared to other Mechanical Keyboards
-Blue ALPS Mechanical Switches
-Multimedia Keys for volume adjustment, mute, and pause, play, next and previous.
-Illuminated with different levels of Illumination
-Disable Windows key for gaming
-Rubber Feet

Cons: -After having this keyboard for 6 months my wire is starting to have problems and its causing my keyboard to disconnect.
- I also dont really like the routing of the wire on the bottom of the keyboard because it doesnt say in place and i think it puts stress on the wire.

-Other than those little things i love this keyboard

5 out of 5 eggsGood entry mechanical keyboard

This review is from: Tt eSPORTS Poseidon Z Illuminated Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Blue Switches

Pros: Mechanical
LED backlight
Standard form factor
Rubber risers

Cons: LED light the top half the keys better than the bottom half.

Other Thoughts: Even though the LED light the Top half of the keys more, I can still visiably see the bottom key symbols just fine.
First mechanical keyboard and had to get used to the weight.

1 out of 5 eggsgarbage kailh keys NOT cherry MX keys -- keep repeating

This review is from: Tt eSPORTS Poseidon Z Illuminated Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Blue Switches

Pros: price, feel, backlit

Cons: Keyboard is great for about 3 months, then some of the keys started randomly repeating themselves. I bought one in July, replaced it for this problem in October. Then in January I had the same problem, so they replaced it again. It's now March and as of today it started doing it on the THIRD keyboard. They offered me to replace the keyboard again or they'd give me a credit to use for any of their other products. Why would I want to buy another piece of junk? I'm so disappointed. When the replacement comes this time, it's going straight on Craigslist and I'm buying another keyboard WITH CHERRY-MX SWITCHES. Two of my friends BOTH have keyboards with cherry switches, which they both bought 4 years ago and they don't have any problems aside from the keycaps losing their paint from being used so much, a testament to the reliability of the Cherry MX switches

3 out of 5 eggsDecent Keyboard - Not the best

This review is from: Tt eSPORTS Poseidon Z Illuminated Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Blue Switches

Pros: Lighted background, Decent feedback. Sturdy.

Cons: I have had this keyboard for about 8 moonths now. My friend bought a mechanical keyboard at the same time. After punching the keys on his keyboard and this one. The difference is quite noticeable. His keyboard had a cleaner crisper soound and a more distinct feeling to the bottooming out.

Also, just recently the keyboard has started duplicating my "O,L,Y" presses. I am leaving anyy of the extra letters in it so you can see how often it happens. (It's not my typing I never have this problem at home on a different keybooard.

Other Thoughts: Good for the price. But the extra key additions are making me crazy. I am about to get rid of it.

4 out of 5 eggsexcellent

This review is from: Tt eSPORTS Poseidon Z Illuminated Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Blue Switches

Pros: Keys are responsive, blue backlighting looks clean, has a solid/weighted feel to it

Cons: Only issue mechanically is that my W and 1 keys sometimes stick for a split second, but not often enough to even be considered a real problem.

Also as someone else mentioned, the blue backlighting flickers kind of like a monitor with a really low refresh rate. It is very noticeable from the corner of your vision while scanning the screen, but I really only notice it while surfing the web. In game I'm too distracted to notice it at all.

Other Thoughts: Recommended for anyone who wants a decent mechanical keyboard and who likes the aesthetics of this particular keyboard.

1 out of 5 eggsGreat keyboard when it works...

This review is from: Tt eSPORTS Poseidon Z Illuminated Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Blue Switches

Pros: - Solid build
- Good layout
- Affordable

Cons: - After a few months of use, keys will begin double registering (technically called "key chatter") which means a key that is pressed once, for example, the "g" key, will double register and output "gg" ... this is a sign of faulty switches in the keyboard.

Other Thoughts: First off, this is a great keyboard for the money if it worked properly. I RMAed my first Poseidon Z because of double registering issues within two months of using it. After a bit of a wait and also paying for shipping to Ttesports, I am on my second Poseidon Z keyboard and once again the keyboard has started double registering keys after two months.

I'm not one to leave bad reviews, but I am extremely disappointed in receiving and using two keyboards with faulty switches and will not be buying from Ttesports ever again. The money I would spend on RMAing a SECOND time will be put towards a new mechanical keyboard.

There are several other reviews stating the same issue and it's a shame Ttesports has not acknowledged these issues other than encouraging people to use the five year warranty, which from my experience, you will most likely need in order to use this keyboard for any significant length of time.

This keyboard would be a great, affordable entry into the world of mechanical keyboards if Ttesports would hold their products to a higher standard and not allow such major problems to exist with their keyboards.

Caveat emptor...keep shopping - there are better options.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

We hope to hear from you soon, to provide you the details.

1 out of 5 eggsPiece of junk

This review is from: Tt eSPORTS Poseidon Z Illuminated Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Blue Switches

Pros: When the keys work they have satisfying feedback

Cons: KEY KEEP BREAKING/STICKING!

Seriously this is idiculous. I've decided to type this review without doing any corections- notice the lack of r's? And that's just the key of the week- I've had problems with at least 4 keys since I've owned this thing. For gaming you can get over it, but it is just awful to do any wod processing on. DO NOT BUY

Other Thoughts: This might just be a super lemon keyboad but fo the $80 I paid forr it I'm very dissapointed.

5 out of 5 eggsPoseidon Z

This review is from: Tt eSPORTS Poseidon Z Illuminated Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Blue Switches

Pros: Solidly built. Backlit. Mechanical. Not going to break the bank when you buy it.

Cons: Some keys feel inconsistent. My cap locks light and scroll lock light do not light up.

Other Thoughts: I bought this as a second mechanical keyboard. My first was a CM Storm. It had Cherry Red keys in it and it is fine for gaming but wanted something better to type on when doing my everyday stuff. This one was around the perfect price. Have to say, it really is a nice keyboard. Full size backlit mechanical keyboard for this price was way to good to pass up on. I don't regret buying it but there are few things about it that are going to bug me. The cap locks light being the only real big thing. Not sure why that bothers me so much but it does. Just me I guess. Other then that, I would buy another one in a heart beat.
