4 out of 5 eggsGood value

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

Pros: - Looks very nice
- Good price
- GREAT Warranty
- Feels sturdy (steel back-plate and good feel on the keys)
- The LEDs on the letters and numbers are bright

Cons: The symbols do not light up very well with the back-lights. For example, 5 is very well lit but % is not. It does light up but just not as bright as the 5.

I don't think they were even trying to hide that they don't light up as bright because in the picture in the product description it's clearly visible that the symbols aren't as bright.

Other Thoughts: The whole symbols thing isn't that big a deal for me because they are visible and functional, but it costs this thing an egg. Everything else has not been a problem for me and with a fantastic warranty and this thing being on sale I had to buy one. If there is any concern that the mechanical switches aren't cherry reds, don't worry these are good switches from my experience.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat keyboard for the price if it would work correctly

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

Pros: key's are well placed, very satisfying switch feel so long as you don't mind the loud click/clack noise. Nice illumination. Simple, not too much, not too little. Feels like a quality keyboard. Honest price.

Cons: None really except that at times certain keystrokes will enter the wrong info. Only solution so far has been to restart. Customer service is non-existent so far. There appears to be no contact number. You must register and then enter a ticket. Working on my second ticket with no response so far. Web site has no FAQ's, no driver updates, downloads, etc. Though it poses as a Thermaltake product, it has it's own separate website and tech support network. Again, non-existent so far. It's been several weeks and no response. Very disappointing because I want to enjoy the product.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Keyboard!!!

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

Pros: -Great feeling keyboard with blue switches.
-really bright backlighting
-numeric keypad (not like some other gaming keyboards that have omitted this feature for the price)
-Windows key disabling button (i keep mine on 24/7 lol)

Cons: -symbols on bottom of number and function keys are not AS illuminated as the numbers
-no dedicated media keys
-not genuine CHERRY keys... they are Kailh (made in china not germany)

Other Thoughts: in this case you get way more than what you pay for... i went through 2 Corsair K70s (both stopped working) before switching to this.. i would choose this any day of the week... and i paid almost twice the price!!! If you buy this keyboard you will not regret it.

Pros: Back lighting and mechanical keys are awesome.

1 out of 5 eggsBad quality control

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

Pros: Affordable when on sale. Kailh switches feel more or less the same as Cherry ones, I cannot tell the difference. Nice backlight, solid feeling.

Cons: Quality control is very lacking. I took a chance on one of these for a work keyboard and noticed the "s" key would sometimes double register or not register at all. So its straight back to Newegg for this one, and unfortunately the return shipping isn't cheap for such a big box. The feel of the keys is not that different so it would be good if it worked, but I now have doubts about the longevity of the switches if some are bad out of the box. I'm going to stick with Cherries from now on.

Also when it's not on sale its basically the same price as some of the cheaper Cherry keyboards, so there's no point in getting this one unless it's on sale (it was 60$ after rebate when I got it).

Other Thoughts: An FAQ on Kailh switches: Cherry's patent on their switches expired recently, allowing companies to come out with cheap clones. Kailh is the one used on this board. They feel alright compared to Cherries but obviously quality and longevity is not as good. If you want to take a risk, go for it but for that much money you might as well get real Cherry switches. They're not much more expensive.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,
We apologize about the negative experience you have had thus far with the Poseidon Z. Please contact Thermaltake Customer Service in regards to the double click issue. Additionally, if you prefer Cherry MX switches, please check out our standard Poseidon. The Poseidon has the same design, but uses the Cherry MX switch. The Poseidon Z, however, is backed by an unparalleled 5 year warranty.

5 out of 5 eggsjust GREAT! :D

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

Pros: My first mechanical keyboard and was looking for a blue key keyboards and I'm extremely satisfied with the purchase. I like loud keys (ironic?) and the lightings are awesome. You can adjust the lights so its better too ;]

Cons: I really dont have much to complain except personally I was so used with wrist rester? arm rester? is that what you call? and this keyboard didn't have it which I won't say its keyboard's fault since it didn't say anything about that. but other than that the product is great.

5 out of 5 eggsAlmost perfect

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

Pros: This is my first experience with the Tt eSPORTS POSEIDON Z keyboard, and I am very happy with it. My typing speed has almost doubled and I make fewer mistakes. The back light on the keys has several brightness levels. It is surprisingly heavy, and does not move during use. Very high quality, solid keyboard."

Cons: I would prefer dedicated buttons for adjusting the volume level of the speakers (PC). This keyboard requires use of the function key next to space bar and using F5-F7 buttons at top.

Other Thoughts: Plug N Play

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.
