2 out of 5 eggsokay keyboard for a small budget

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

Pros: great response time
clean keystrokes

Cons: after some time there began to be an issue where after i'd press my caps lock key (hotkey in mumble, etc) it would spam my F12 key until i hit caps lock again. say if i was in a game of counterstrike, i may try to comm. to my buddies in mumble and end up having 100+ screenshots taken within a couple seconds

Other Thoughts: i wasn't a fan of the blue switches, although this is all personal preference
wouldn't recommend if you're looking for a long lasting keyboard

4 out of 5 eggsVery nice budget keyboard, few mistakes

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

Pros: - Sounds very professional and nice
- Lights don't look cheap
- keys are easy to take out and put back in
- Cool features such as the window lock key, brightness change, and shortcuts
- Good price for mechanical keyboard
I think it is also a good idea to mention that this keyboard is relatively heavy compared to others, so it doesn't move around when i'm gaming which bugged me with my old keyboard

Cons: a week after i got this keyboard i instantly realized the E key would repeat itself a lot. I Couldn't find a way to fix this, and i'm hoping it doesn't do this for other keys in the future
- Large keys like the Enter key are harder to put back in

Other Thoughts: I've had this keyboard for about 2 months now and the lights haven't dimmed at all. It isn't awkward to use at all even without a wrist rest. I extremely recommend this if you don't have a mechanical keyboard and you're looking for one. Can't complain about anything, and would gladly use over a cheap Razer keyboard. If you're looking for a semi-budget mechanical keyboard, get it!

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

Pros: not like other TT products, 99% of them are great, this one is not a good representation of their products.

1 out of 5 eggsLasted almosst onee yer

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

Pros: It lasted 351 days and now finially i have had enough of it.

Cons: I hav issues with the keys reestering , somtimes tthe keys regestter, and othe ttimes they dont. As i type typically fast i never ccheck to see if tthe speelling is correect ( which it usually is) untill this keyboard start to double and triple tttypee letters. The only letters thatt thave shown to triple type are thee T and thhe E But the T will leave a space between the 3rd letter and the 2nd letter . Not too impressed

Other Thoughts: - I would probabbly never purchasse another Tt Keyboard, i would like my money back TTBBH This was like $100 of my hard earned money that is basically wasted now.

2 out of 5 eggsUnresponive after less than half a year

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

Pros: Beautiful keyboard, feels great to the touch, and goes well with my all blue setup

Cons: Works very incconsistently. At first it was jjust thee E key which was the hugest pain, but I thought it was possibly just dust or something getting undeer the keys. But noww at least 5 or 6 keys noww work inconsistently. Has made this keyboard bbasically unusable. For about $90 I expected someething that wouuld last longer, and I am not even a keyboard and mmouse gamer nor a student who has written any long papers. The only use this keyboard has gotten is posting inane commments on facebook or what have youu. Obviously I left the mmistakes in this review so you can see how painfully bad it is.

4 out of 5 eggscheap(for a mechanical), works, shiny keys

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

Pros: Was inexpensive for a mechanical keyboard.
Everything worked.
Nice solid feel to it and the keystrokes feel nice to me.

Cons: The keys seem unusually shiny. I bought it for a work environment. Lighting is bad, which made the shiny key problem even worse. You could not read the keys unless you had the backlighting on. If I could have bought a non-backlight mechanical at this price, I would have. I had to sand down the key surface so I could use it without the backlighting on.
Also, because of the backlighting style, the numbers and symbols are reversed. This is so the numbers become backlit. The symbols are not backlit.

4 out of 5 eggsbest budget keyboard there is.

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

Pros: -got it for $59.99, not $79.99
-easily the best keyboard I have ever used
-tenkeyless (might be a con for some, but I love how compact it is.)
-good switches (even if they are a 'knockoff,' it's a quality one)

Cons: - Cannot access BIOS/UEFI on certain mobos (-1 egg)

On CERTAIN motherboards (emphasis on 'certain') this keyboard WILL NOT boot until you are past the BIOS. This isn't the case on ALL motherboards - I went from an AM3+ to Z170 board and the issue went away.

This is something you HAVE to keep in mind because accessing your bios is something you will most likely have to do at least once, gaming or not.

Other Thoughts: Overall, if you're okay with possibly not being able to access the BIOS (you shouldn't be okay with this and should have another PS/2 or USB keyboard if need be) and you don't use the numpad, this is the ideal keyboard for you.

1 out of 5 eggsBroken/Repeating keys

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

Pros: It looks good

Cons: This keyboard worked great for about 6 months and then out of nowheere certain keys began sticking/repeating.

Also, thee 0 (zero) button on the keypad basically stopped working entirely or will only register if you push down really hard.

I am sorry but for $80 I eexpect to get more usage out of this thing than 6 months.

I went ahead and left the typos in this revieew to demonstrate exactly what its doing. These are all from just normal typiing with this keyboard.

Other Thoughts: I wish I had read the reviews prior to purchasing because the sticking/repeating keys seems to be a fairly common problem.

4 out of 5 eggsNice KB, nice price

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

Pros: Good replacement for an old mid 90's DB5 keyboard I have.
Keys have an ok feel. I like the sound the keys make.

Cons: back-lit keys feature is useless to me.
Not that I wouldn't want or use the key backlights....
but they have a SUPER annoying flicker. (very noticeable in your peripheral vision, and when I'm looking at my screen, the KB is in my periphery). This is the kind of flicker you get when LED lights have a cheap or insufficient driver.
Thankfully, the backlight can be turned OFF.

Other Thoughts: Blue seems to be an unpopular switch 'color'..... for blues, this was the most reasonably priced, and gets the job done.
