The POSEIDON Z Illuminated KB-PIZ-KBBLUS-01 is a budget- friendly, full-featured keyboard. The Tt eSPORTS certified mechanical brown switches deliver superb feedback and fast response, and last up to 50 million keystrokes. N-key rollover means every key you press can register without ghosting. Media keys allow quick control of media playback, and four levels of adjustable LED backlighting enables error-free operation in low light or dark conditions.

  • newegg Tt eSPORTS certified mechanical brown switches The Tt eSPORTS certified mechanical brown switches offer the right balance between tactile feedback and actuation force, while being much quieter than Blue switches. These switches actuate earlier and closer to the tactile feedback, offering a more accurate feel and faster response time than the other more commonly found mechanical switches.
  • newegg Anti-ghosting and disable window key function With 6-8 key N-Key rollover, the POSEIDON Illuminated allows you to hit combinations of keys at once, ensuring your gaming session is as fluid as it can be. A switch which allows you to disable the Windows key prevents accidental presses of the Windows key while gaming.
  • newegg Accessible media keys With the Fn (function) + F1-F7 keys, you can control your volume and media player anytime right with your keyboard, without having to minimize your current game or program.
  • newegg Fully back-lit keyboard With an LED under each cap, the POSEIDON Z Illuminated is a fully back-lit keyboard, offering four levels of adjustable brightness via the Fn (function) + F11/F12 keys.

5 out of 5 eggsBig Upgrade from Microsoft Sydewinder

This review is from: Tt eSPORTS POSEIDON Z Illuminated KB-PIZ-KLBLUS-01 Black USB Wired Gaming Mechanical Keyboard – Blue Switch Edition

Pros: *Heavy- I love the weight of this thing, will never slide no matter how hard you type or game with it.

*Sound- Personally I love it, but it could be a con for some.

*Portable- Although its heavy, its super small profile. Easily fits in a backpack, carrying case, or etc. Literally about 50% of the size of the Microsoft Sydewinder.

*Brightness- My entire rig is lit up, my mouse, etc, but this keyboard is by far the brightest. It's 3rd setting for brightness might as well be a lamp in a dark room. Seriously the brightest piece of gaming equipment I have EVER seen. (Fear not, its easily adjusted with Function + F11/F12)

*Good layout - Easily adapted from last keyboards with no problem. I would say my typing speed also improved a good 10-15 wpm.

*Price - One of the cheapest mechanical boards out there, and you really don't see why. The quality is outstanding. The Blue Switches are amazing.

Cons: *Sound - Its loud, people hear it over my stream. (Doesn't bother me)

*So Bright that the light bleeds around keys (Doesn't bother me)

*The northern-back keystands could be longer, as I like a more slanted keyboard when I'm not gaming. No big deal though.

Other Thoughts: Worth every penny of $80.00. You are not missing out on anything by getting this instead of a comparable $120.00 blue-switch mechanical, except the price and probably a bit of size. Up to you if you want to pay more for a bigger keyboard though.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Mechanical Keyboard for Price

This review is from: Tt eSPORTS POSEIDON Z Illuminated KB-PIZ-KLBLUS-01 Black USB Wired Gaming Mechanical Keyboard – Blue Switch Edition

Pros: I've been searching for a mechanical keyboard (blue switches) before finally deciding on this one. I was looking for one that wasn't too expensive, but still gave me the quality of a great keyboard. Not too big, different backlighting brightnesses, and the Windows key lock option is great.

Cons: Really only one color for the backlit keys. Not really a problem for me since I like blue

Other Thoughts: I haven't searched the market for mechanical keyboards in this price range since I've purchased this product (6 months ago), so I'm not sure if anything new has come out since then. But I still highly recommend this product for the gamers and heavy typists alike.

4 out of 5 eggsGood, cheap, illuminated keyboard

This review is from: Tt eSPORTS POSEIDON Z Illuminated KB-PIZ-KLBLUS-01 Black USB Wired Gaming Mechanical Keyboard – Blue Switch Edition

Pros: The blue switches were a nice upgrade from my previous motherboard (which were rubber-domed). This keyboard has good, tactile feedback and allows for fairly quick typing; though it did take a little bit of getting used to. Beautifully bright, deep blue light comes from this keyboard's keys; truly helpful for typing in the dark.

This keyboard was a great value for the price that I bought it ($75) at the time, but it seems that mechanical keyboards have since lowered prices, but that is expected.

Cons: This board is very loud. I guess I should have expected it considering anyone who knows about mechanical switches say that blue switches are really loud. Do not expect to try to write an essay at night if you live with somebody else unless your room is sound-proof or you're separated by a good distance.

I am fairly sure that there is no way to remove the keys. I have tried taking a few off before to show people what's underneath (since most people have never seen a mechanical keyboard), but wasn't able to figure it out.

Other Thoughts: I bought this along with the Tt eSports THERON gaming mouse and am very pleased with the illumination that they both put off. It really adds to the whole PC gaming setup; especially since they are of the same brand.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Quality!

This review is from: Tt eSPORTS POSEIDON Z Illuminated KB-PIZ-KLBLUS-01 Black USB Wired Gaming Mechanical Keyboard – Blue Switch Edition

Pros: Backlit Keys
"Clicky" Mechanical Keys
heavy duty chassis
No Frills Basic Keyboard with no usb ports ( a big plus IMO)

Cons: Lack of Mac Support ( maybe just throw in some extra Keycaps with command and Option symbols on them? We can switch the keycaps, and using OSX even switch the keys!

Other Thoughts: Really enjoy typing on this keyboard, I've tried almost every brand out there. I really appreciate the no frills design of this keyboard. I use a KVM Switch so additional buttons for media control, etc. are really just useless IMO. I think this company did an awesome job of putting this keyboard together from design to assembly. It feels very solid and sturdy (there is no Flex to the keyboard like most keyboards built these days have. I think there has to be a metal chassis in this keyboard to make it feel so solid. The click is right on to my likeng as well. I even like the feel of the keys, I doubt they are PBT for this price, but they do have a good feel to them and don't appear to be really thin like most of the ABS keys on keyboards today. I think this company has really delivered. I mean after all what is the part of the computer you interact with the most? If you are like me it's your Input devices, so why not make them GREAT! I really think this keyboard is on the mark.

3 out of 5 eggsOkay Keyboard

This review is from: Tt eSPORTS POSEIDON Z Illuminated KB-PIZ-KLBLUS-01 Black USB Wired Gaming Mechanical Keyboard – Blue Switch Edition

Pros: -The clone is nice
-Illuminated

Cons: The keyboard number keys seem to be different than the rest of the keyboard. They dont have a blue switch feel, more like brown keys. This really made me mad.
Plus the spacebar is not forgiving, once pressed, the spacebar does not come up quickly

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,
You can pull the caps to verify if the numbers have blue switches. Additionally, they spacebar should have the same response and feel as all other keys. If the spacebar is unresponsive, please contact Customer Service.

4 out of 5 eggsNice keyboard

This review is from: Tt eSPORTS POSEIDON Z Illuminated KB-PIZ-KLBLUS-01 Black USB Wired Gaming Mechanical Keyboard – Blue Switch Edition

Pros: Very heavy and sturdy keyboard, the keys have that nice tactile click, and of course all the keys are even and have the same actuation force (unlike a cheap keyboard).

Cons: The backlight flickers. Some people may not notice it but I'm sensitive to flicker. I can't stand CRTs below 85 Hz and I can't stand plasma TVs either. Out of the edge of my vision, this backlight is an annoying mess of blue flashing and flickering. I have the backlight turned off as a result.

The switches are loud, but this is not a con for me. Don't buy this for an office cubicle environment. The noise is not an issue at my home though.

Other Thoughts: I jumped on Newegg's open box inventory and got one of these for about $60. Great price, great keyboard, and a great upgrade that will hopefully outlast all the cheap keyboards I wear out so quickly.

Also these are not Cherry MX switches but don't let that concern you. It's nice to see some competition in the mechanical keyswitch industry.

4 out of 5 eggsTt POSEIDON Z

This review is from: Tt eSPORTS POSEIDON Z Illuminated KB-PIZ-KLBLUS-01 Black USB Wired Gaming Mechanical Keyboard – Blue Switch Edition

Pros: Solid!!! This thing feels like a brick on my desk.

Very tactile touch, as the blues are known for.

5yr warranty on the switches

Cons: Backlight bleeds through the sides of the keys no matter what brightness setting you use. This thing can get bright!

Doesn't come with a wrist rest (a Con to some)

Other Thoughts: Feels extremely solid and heavy compared to my Razer. It sits on my desk like a tank and doesn't shift or move during even the roughest of gaming sessions.

4 out of 5 eggsGood for the price

This review is from: Tt eSPORTS POSEIDON Z Illuminated KB-PIZ-KLBLUS-01 Black USB Wired Gaming Mechanical Keyboard – Blue Switch Edition

Pros: LED backlit, cheap cherry MX blue switch.

Cons: It is a bit uncomfortable for me. It could use a wrist rest but that's just another 5 dollars.
