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.

5 out of 5 eggsBest brown switch keyboard for under $100

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

Pros: I have owned a lot of keyboards, and in the last two years all of them have been mechanical. I have used the:

1. SteelSeries 6GV2 (which malfunctioned CONSTANTLY)
2. QuMax X-Armor Cherry MX Brown keyboard (a real good one and made by Max keyboard)
3. Rosewill Apollo RK-9100-BBR (Max keyboard OEM) Cherry MX Brown keyboard, and finally...
4. Tt eSPORTS Poseidon Z in the Blue switch variety.

I found out I do not like the Blue switches at all. I prefer browns. I sent back my first Poseidon Z because of that reason. I was looking for a solid replacement for the QuMax X-Armor keyboard that I sold (and really regretted since they cannot be bought anymore) but with blue backlighting at the same time.

The Rosewill Apollo KR-9100-BBR seemed to be the one, it had the Cherry Browns, blue backlighting, and was supposed to be identical to the QuMax since they are both made by Max keyboard. The Rosewill had a great feel to it, but malfunctioned from time to time by duplicating key presses without my consent...so back it went. I wanted to like it and wanted to keep it but I was unwilling to try and try again to get a good one. It had a nice rubberized coating and a wrist rest and all the good stuff. It was also pricey at $109.

Now, to this Poseidon Z Brown switch edition keyboard. It does not have a rubberized coating and it does not have a wrist rest. It does not have a braided fabric cable. And, quite frankly, I don't care. What really matters is this Poseidon Z keyboard is extremely high quality and has not malfunctioned once. The key press is indistinguishable from the Cherry MX Browns. I should know, having owned two keyboards previously with Cherry MX Browns.

What you get here is a no-frills (other than blue backlighting), solid mechanical keyboard at a great price. This one is a keeper.

So, here are the enumerated pros:

1. No stability issues/malfunctions (kinda critical in a keyboard...)
2. Blue backlighting
3. Superb key feel if you prefer "browns"
4. Price
5. Heavy and will not skid on your desk no matter what

Cons: None. At this price point there are no complaints.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat KB for the price

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

Pros: I cant tell the difference between the mechanical keys on this board and Cherry, Ive used both and they are the same.
Board is responsive and doesnt have excess bulk built around the sides. Its sturdy

Cons: non so far for me. If you use macros this is not the board for you it has no specific macro keys.

Other Thoughts: Good board for the price, Ive had much more expensive and im just as happy with this one.

Longevity of the keys remains to be seen.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Keyboard

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

Pros: Sturdy, Heavy construction
Adjustable Backlighting
No Frills Basic Keyboard Design
Tactile Keys
Works well with a mac

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I have this keyboard in both the blue switch and brown switch versions and i really love the way it's made. It's heavy and doesn't slide around all over your desk, it's got a very nice weight to it. The feel of the keys are really great and a joy to type on. The brown switches are definitely quieter than the blues but both switches have their pros and cons. I think build quality is really spot on with this keyboard and the price is right. Features I would like to see in this keyboard or perhaps a newer version would be maybe a cable wrapped USB Cord or even a detachable cord would be a nice feature (as long as the quality didn't go down with anything else :) I use the keyboard with a mac pro. and it works fine. I would def. recommend this keyboard to friends and family if you are in the market for a no-frills basic, well-built, quality keyboard that doesn't break the bank :)

5 out of 5 eggsGreat keyboard for the price.

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

Pros: The Brown Cherry MX switch is great for typing and staying quiet at the same time. It is significantly less "noisy" than other switches. The back-lighting on this keyboard is pretty good too, it is bright enough to be seen in the dark, but not to blind you at night with the light off.

Cons: The only minor issue I have with this keyboard (but mainly with all keyboards) is that it doesn't have a wrist rest and kinda feels tiring if you're like me and like to the keyboard as closely to the edge as possible... Also the Fn, and "list" keys are too sensitive. While typing this review I have hit those two keys at least 10 times :\ but that's not too big of an issue is suppose, (or maybe my hand is too big)

Other Thoughts: I actually prefer using the shift key on this keyboard compared to any other keyboard i have used b4... idk why...
