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.

Faster Response
Mechanical Switches

The leading mechanical blue/brown switch actuates a bit after the tactile feedback of the key, but the Tt eSPORTS Certified Mechanical switches actuates earlier and closer to the tactile feedback. Offering a more accurate feel and faster response time than the other more commonly found mechanical switches.


tagline

Tt eSPORTS Certified
Mechanical Blue Switches

The Tt eSPORTS Certified Mechanical Blue switches are built for speed and durability, offering a pronounced tactile feel and audible click feedback. These switches were specially chosen by our pro-gamers and engineers, and we believe in them so much that we're offering the world's first 5 year warranty on a mechanical gaming keyboard.


tagline

Anti-Ghosting & Disable
Windows Key Function

With 6 - 8 key N-Key Rollover, the POSEIDON Illuminated will allow you to hit combinations of keys at once to make sure your gaming session is as fluid as it can be. A switch to disable the windows key, prevents accidental presses of the windows key while in-game.


tagline

Accessible Media Keys

With the Fn (function) + F1-F7 keys, you can control your volume and media player anytime, without having to minimize your current game or program.

1 out of 5 eggsFailing keys and no warranty response

Pros: Compact design and affordable price

Cons: Does not live up to the reputation of reliability from mechanism keyboards;
Had 3 attempts for customer service for warranty, and gave up after a week with no response

Other Thoughts: A couple keys began failing to register with normal pressing within first year of usage - it takes harder pressing force to register, i.e. the blue switch's click sound does not mean the key is registered. It got worse from there, gradually more keys shared the same issues. After the first year, a new problem came in: a few other keys began to register 2-3 times with single press, some registered before the click sound from the blue switches. After a year and a half, this keyboard is completely useless - imagine typing pwds covered in *. I tried Tt's customer service and registered on their website, sent a couple emails and my wife tried the same. We gave up trying after one week. Guess the advertised 5 year warranty is not responding when we needs it. I would recommend against this keyboard for its poor quality and lack of response from warranty customer service.

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent keyboard, but potentially faulty models im sure

Pros: - tactile feedback is great
- keys are fantastic
- year and a half no issues

Cons: - BREAK IN PERIOD, DONT BE ALARMED BY POOR/STRANGE FUNCTION OUT OF BOX
- there is definitely a breakin period for some of the keys
- at first some keys wouldnt register or had a double click feel

Other Thoughts: - I would definitely recommend this product, I'll use this keyboard until it finally dies, absolutely love it.
- hold onto your receipts, you never know if there is going to be an actual issue further down, since it did operate "poorly" at first
- solid 10/10 currently
- would have given it 5 stars if it didnt have a break in period, but it definitely does, so DONT FRET IF ITS KINDA WONKY OUT OF THE BOX

1 out of 5 eggsGood for about 2 years

Pros: - My first experience with a mechanical keyboard and i really actually liked the feel of the board.
- Solid build quality
- non slip feet work well

Cons: - space bar went faulty at about 1 year 9 months, im writing the review with the keyboard right now and as you can tell there is a few extra spaces in some spots.

Other Thoughts: Submitted warranty claim to Thermal take 2 times and they havent responded. Will change my review if that changes.

2 out of 5 eggsokay keyboard for a small budget

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

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!

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

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

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

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.
