5 out of 5 eggsGreat cheap mech

This review is from: Tt eSPORTS Poseidon Z Illuminated Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Brown Switches

Pros: Kailh browns are no different that cherry browns to me, or that I could tell

Solidly built, ~3 pounds

Numpad

Backlit

Cons: Nothing that I'm currently aware of.

Other Thoughts: Most people are leaving negative reviews because they got a messed up keyboard in the mail. That's not really a review.

1 out of 5 eggsOne strike and that's enough...

This review is from: Tt eSPORTS Poseidon Z Illuminated Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Brown Switches

Pros: Compact.

Bright, easily visible keys.

Cons: Random failures out of the box. Number keys never worked, other keys sometimes worked. This keyboard messed up my image transfer from my old HD so badly I had to give up and go for a software rebuild....after going to a box store and buying a $12 keyboard replacement.

Other Thoughts: Newegg took it back without any static. I'm liking Newegg just fine, but no eggs for this keyboard.

2 out of 5 eggsSave your money!

This review is from: Tt eSPORTS Poseidon Z Illuminated Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Brown Switches

Pros: Clean, simple design
Feels heavy, sturdy
Lovely blue LEDs w/ ability to adjust brightness

Cons: When I purchased this keyboard back in December '14, it worked flawlessly. The only annoyance was it's inability to save your LED brightness. (Have to readjust it every time I power on)
A few weeks into ownership, I started to notice my "A" key double typing every now and then. (Words like "great" were spelled "greaat") I had passed Newegg's return period, so I hoped the keyboard wouldn't deteriorate any further.
Boy was I wrong.
Six months into ownership, and my "A" key frequently triple types, or it just flat out doesn't type, (This is greaaat, it's so wesome!) and I think my down arrow key is giving up as well.
Fortunately Thermaltake provides a 5 years warranty with this board, because believe me, you're gonna need it. According to their warranty policy, you have to pay return shipping.
Here's hoping for the best, but I'm scared for my replacement...

Other Thoughts: Save your money, and buy a board with legitimate Cherry MX keys. I have a hard time pronouncing what the Poseidon Z uses-Kalih keys I believe. Honestly, by now I wish I could get my money back. It wasn't worth the $40 or so dollars I saved.

1 out of 5 eggsAvoid this keyboard!

This review is from: Tt eSPORTS Poseidon Z Illuminated Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Brown Switches

Pros: Was fine at first, bought from Newegg last year but the last few weeks I also started gettting (actually just happened to 'getting' just typed) the double strikes. tried adjusting keyboard settings in windows but it's still happening. of course that slows down the cursor and delette key when I neeed them. (all of the double strikes in this review are legit and are happening while ttyping with this keyboard.

Cons: Double strikes. Very annoying.

Other Thoughts: Avoid this keyboard. I see I'm not the only one with this problem. Argh. don't have ttime to deal with this right now. going to buy another from a different company.

1 out of 5 eggsNot worth your money

This review is from: Tt eSPORTS Poseidon Z Illuminated Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Brown Switches

Pros: - Looks Cool
- Works well for the first few months

Cons: It seems that many people are having the same issue as me. The keyboard worked fine for the first few months and then started double striking. It almost happens to ever key, especially space bar. I would not recommend this keyboard for someone looking for something reliable. It's not worth the risk of getting a defective keyboard just to save a few bucks. If you really want a mechanical keyboard I would recommend that you spend a few extra dollars to invest in a better functional keyboard.

1 out of 5 eggsSame problem, new keyboard.

This review is from: Tt eSPORTS Poseidon Z Illuminated Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Brown Switches

Pros: Simple layout, clean looking.

Cons: I have the last model and It's sad they are still having this problem with double striking. They only want more money out of you when they want you to send in their defective product. I tried to talk to them about getting a replacement before I send out the bad one but they want you to pay for another keyboard. Worst customer service I have came across yet for computer parts.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

We at Thermaltake would like to apologize for the negative experience you've had with our product.
Yes, a security deposit is charged to receive a replacement first, but it's only to assure the return of the defective keyboard. Once received, your deposit is fully refunded.
Please allow us a chance to replace your keyboard and regain your support by contacting our customer service team.

2 out of 5 eggsHad to return

This review is from: Tt eSPORTS Poseidon Z Illuminated Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Brown Switches

Pros: -Compact but full sized
-Back lit
-Brown switches
-Cheap

Cons: Broken on arrival "R" key. The R key was so sensitive that simply brushing my finger over the top of it or pressing an adjacent key too hard would cause the R to trigger. This added in extra r's everywhere and rendered the keyboard just about useless.

Other Thoughts: Although the keyboard felt nice overall, and seemed like a good value, I had to return mine due to the R key issue that I was having. After reading other reviews of keys going out after a matter of months or less, and having experienced one being broken on my brand new keyboard, I decided the slightly lower price wasn't worth the risk of having keys stop working. For just a small amount more, there are many other more reputable mechanical keyboards out there that don't have a significant amount of reports of keys not working properly.

I ended up returning mine (thanks newegg!) and getting another more reputable brand for just $15 more, and it works great.

In my opinion, do your research, and spend a little bit more on a mechanical keyboard without a considerable amount of reported defects in the reviews.

I am usually skeptical of negative reviews, because much of the time it seems like the issue may be user error, or the customer not fully researching what they were buying ahead of time. However, in my experience with this product, it does seem that there is some merit to the reviews complaining about malfunctioning keys.

I am not saying that your keyboard won't work properly if you get one of these, everyone who has a 100% working unit seems perfectly happy with theirs. But it seems like you will have a higher chance of experiencing an issue with this product than many others.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

We at Thermaltake would like to apologize for the inconvenience this has caused.
It is unfortunate to lose your business but we are happy to hear you are up and running.
Thank you very much for your review. Your review, as many others, help us be aware of where our products stand
and allow us to better moving foward. As it may be long shot now, we hope to gain your support in the near future.

5 out of 5 eggsBright...like really bright.

This review is from: Tt eSPORTS Poseidon Z Illuminated Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Brown Switches

Pros: Tactile responsiveness is excellent without too much of a din while typing. Keys are perfectly spaced...even for a pair of larger hands. Button to disable the windows key for gaming sounds handy, I'll be using this in a professional setting however. Adjustable brightness is not only a bonus....but a requirement for this board.

Cons: The LEDs on this board can be overwhelmingly bright at times...especially if you have sensitivity to light. I've actually found the brightness in my peripheral vision to be distracting at times, even when on the lowest brightness setting. Since the board lighting can be fully turned off, however, I'm not taking any eggs off for this.

Other Thoughts: Overall this is a wonderful board for the finicky typist. While the brown switch may not be as clacky as the blue...I find it makes the proper amount of noise while providing a tactile response to make you feel confident in your typing.
