1 out of 5 eggsFaulty keys and EOM warranty is annoying

This review is from: Tt eSPORTS KB-PIZ-KBBLUS-01 POSEIDON Z Illuminated Keyboard - Brown Switch Edition

Pros: * Worked very well for 6 months - I purchased a 2nd keyboard for use in the office
* Back light is vibrant
* Media keys work very well

Cons: After 6 months of casual use at home, the keyboard is starting to sent multiple keystrokes when I depress some keys. This leads to writing sentences like "The quiick bbrown fox jummped over the llazy dog." This doesn't always happen, but it happens often enough that it inhibits my work.

I got a 3-year extended warranty for the first keyboard I purchased, but that warranty won't cover this defect because the EOM warranty is still in effect. I submitted a support request to Thermaltake but they responded with a form letter and directed me to read several pages of warranty documentation and then ship the keyboard back to them. Not to mention that I had to enter my personal information 3 times into their system.

Long story short, in retrospect, considering the cost of shipping, the cost of my extended warranty and the trouble that I'd have to go to return the item, it would be cheaper for me to just buy another keyboard.

Other Thoughts: This keyboard so was awesome that I bought a second one for the office, until my first keyboard started flaking out. The uninspired tech support has soured my experience with this company.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat keyboard thats a step up for the cost!

This review is from: Tt eSPORTS KB-PIZ-KBBLUS-01 POSEIDON Z Illuminated Keyboard - Brown Switch Edition

Pros: Great key stroke feel!

Great Blue LED back lighting with 3 different brightness settings along with a off feature!

Optional Windows key off button that's great when gaming!

Has a great solid all aluminum front and side build quality that gives this keyboard a nice solid weight with zero flex that all my pervious keyboards had even at $50 costs!

Nice brightness control that stays set after rebooting!

Having a Blue LED under each key is also a nice feature!

This is an excellent keyboard at a great price point!

The lack of a palm rest is not a con since I never needed to use one and this keyboard is designed with a very low profile along with the smallest footprint I have seen with any other keyboard!

Has volume control via the F5-F6 and F-7 keys!

Has a very quite keystroke compared to many other mechanical keyboards with the cheaper switches!

The brown switch version is way more quite than the blue switch version and well worth the wait for new stock if out of stock.

I had to wait 3 weeks for the vender I bought from to get this brown switch version in at the same price as the blue switch model.

Never heard of Tt eSPORTS mechanical keyboard but did some research to find out it was manufactured by Thermal Take.

So this keyboard is manufactured by a well know company which made a difference in my decision!

The 5 year warranty allows for good longevity without much worry!

I would at least give this a try which is possible if bought thru a different vender that happens to be great with returns on all of there products sold!

I like Newegg and do buy from them often but with a untested keyboard that I had never had a chance to test I was happy to buy from a vender that offers simple easy prepaid returns!

Cons: The only con that I can come up with is the lighting is not perfect for the secondary key functions!

No palm rest could be a issue for people that use one!

Other Thoughts: This is by far the best keyboard I have ever used!

As a Computer tech since 1994 I have used many different keyboards over the years with most being ruined by my spilling soda into the keyboard.

I love the feel of the keys and the small foot print is a huge plus as well. This weighs about 3 LBs and you can tell how solid it really when you take it out of the shipping box.

I can't understand anyone giving this a review below 3 stars no matter what!

Once again if you get a keyboard that is missing a LED light or has a switch that's not working correctly then you ship it back for a replacement.

Giving any product a poor review based on receiving a faulty product is NOT A REVIEW AT ALL, IT'S A COMPLAINT and nothing more!

I really get tired of people giving bad reviews on non functioning products when they have no clue how good a working product really is!

Bad hard drives, motherboards, memory, or optical drives is a normal part of getting computer parts at a super low price point! So expecting perfect quality control is just not reasonable at all!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat keyboard, not for me

This review is from: Tt eSPORTS KB-PIZ-KBBLUS-01 POSEIDON Z Illuminated Keyboard - Brown Switch Edition

Pros: Backlighting is a nice feature, and the mechanical feel is amazing compared to dome switches. Sleek and solid. Great price.

Cons: No palm rest. The brown switches might as well be red - it's really hard to feel the registration bump. For those of us coming from rubber dome switch keyboards, red or brown switches will likely be too light for you. I kept pressing keys just by resting my fingers on them. I ended up needing a board with black switches.

Other Thoughts: I swapped this for an Ozone Strike. I sacrificed the backlighting, but ended up with black switches, easily changeable keys, and audio and usb passthroughs right on the board

4 out of 5 eggsGood, not perfect

This review is from: Tt eSPORTS KB-PIZ-KBBLUS-01 POSEIDON Z Illuminated Keyboard - Brown Switch Edition

Pros: Sturdy. No bounce or lag. Heavy; does not slide around. Illumination is uniform. Disable Windows-key function. Only needs one USB connection.

Cons: Unlike "real" Cherry MX brown switches, the TT "brown" switches have no tactile feedback. They're nice keyswitches, but not really like the browns. Since I wanted better feedback, there goes an egg.

Other Thoughts: A competitor's product died right after warranty, so I thought I'd try this one. While I don't regret the purchase, I would have preferred the feel of "real" Cherry MX brown switches.

3 out of 5 eggsKeys double registers after 3-4 months

This review is from: Tt eSPORTS KB-PIZ-KBBLUS-01 POSEIDON Z Illuminated Keyboard - Brown Switch Edition

Pros: 5 levels of LED brightness
Cheaper than most mechanical keyboards (got it on sale)

Cons: Bad performance after 90 days

Other Thoughts: After about 3 months of regular gaming usage, the "T" and "R" keys start to double/triple register on single click.

I am able to shrug it off fr now, but it gets tricky when typing passwords.

Dear Customer,

4 out of 5 eggsPOSIEDON Z

This review is from: Tt eSPORTS KB-PIZ-KBBLUS-01 POSEIDON Z Illuminated Keyboard - Brown Switch Edition

Pros: Keyboard feels great, this is my first Mech Keyboard and so far I've loved it. I had a slight issue when I received my first Keyboard, the "A" key wasn't working properly. I returned the keyboard within the standard return policy and Newegg sent me a new one. So far this one is great without any issues. I really want to credit newegg customer service/return policy. It's so easy to return a item that is defective.

I spent a long time researching for the perfect keyboard that looked professional and was reasonably priced and this is the best product I found. I can't tell you difference between legit Cherry keys versus these keys, from never owning Cherry Keys. But I can tell you I do enjoy the response I get from these "Brown Keys" compared to my original keyboard.

Cons: The only things I wish that came along with the keyboard are Drivers, and a wrist pad. I will have to search for a wrist pad to suite the keyboard. But besides that I would recommend this keyboard to anyone looking to purchase their first Mechanical Keyboard.

Other Thoughts: Good keyboard for the price.

5 out of 5 eggsClickly Clack

This review is from: Tt eSPORTS KB-PIZ-KBBLUS-01 POSEIDON Z Illuminated Keyboard - Brown Switch Edition

Pros: Very nice very clickly clack, which is all that we're looking for. It doesn't make the sharp click sound, but it's got the sound of plastic hitting plastic when you press it. Very sexy.

Cons: $80 is a bit steep, but I got this for the long run, hopefully it gets there.

5 out of 5 eggsOWNER FOR 4 MONTHS AND...

This review is from: Tt eSPORTS KB-PIZ-KBBLUS-01 POSEIDON Z Illuminated Keyboard - Brown Switch Edition

Pros: When looking for a keyboard my only requirements were that it was backlit (I often play games in the dark), had a solid construction for gaming, and of course that it had mechanical brown switches. Price was not an issue for me, but after reading and watching countless reviews (and driving myself crazy) on a wide variety of keyboards I decided that this keyboard at a lower price had everything I needed. I couldn't rationalize spending 2x or 3x more money on a gaming keyboard that couldn't even do its primary function correctly, which is to input keystrokes! I have never used Cherry switches and frankly I got so caught up in having to have genuine Cherry keys that I passed on this keyboard several times. I'm glad I decided to give it a shot. It feels great, has a great warranty, and I've never experienced a single "sticky key" or had a glitch in typing after 4 months of heavy use.

Cons: I have this keyboard attached to a USB hub that is always powered on. Unlike my previous Logitech that knew it was no longer in use, this one must be turned off before your computer shuts down or you will have to unplug it.
