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 eggsFantastic! First time mechanical

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

Pros: Wow. This is my first mechanical keyboard, and it just feels so right. Never going back to regular keyboards.

+The feel of the keys are just amazing.
+Great price for a great keyboard!
+Very sturdy and heavy.
+Blue LEDs! Complements my other LEDs.
+5 year warranty. Wow. Not something you see every day.
+Disable Windows key.

Cons: None yet, but I feel that cleaning this may be difficult when I need to...

Other Thoughts: Highly recommended! Absolutely worth every penny.

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...

5 out of 5 eggsCan't Beat This Keyboard

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

Pros: + Solid build quality
+ Blue LED backlight
+Solid brown key switch
+Cost is great. (Bought it for $70 with $10 rebate)
+5 Year warranty on the switches

Cons: -None except for the space bar sounding loud as the old dell keyboards with spring switches.

Overall it's a great keyboard.

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for a keyboard similar to a cherry mx brown switch, this khail switch is almost identical.
I highly suggest this keyboard to anyone looking for a cheap, solid build quality product.

2 out of 5 eggsNothing like a real Cherry MX board

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

Pros: It's cheaper than a real Cherry MX board, it looks nice, feels solid, and it's fairly compact compared to other mechanical keyboards. It certainly feels better than cheap rubber-dome keyboards.

Cons: If I didn't have a real Cherry MX brown-equipped board to compare it to, I might say that it's fine. But, sitting right next to my CM Storm Quickfire (one of the cheapest boards you can find with Cherry MX switches), these "brown" keys feel NOTHING like real Cherry MX Brown keys. There's a little more friction on each key, and virtually none of the tactile "bump" that you're supposed to feel on MX Browns, letting you know that you've reached the actuation point.

Also, my unit appears to be defective, specifically the "H" key. It's regularly registering multiple presses, as if it's stuck, even though it isn't. "Thhat's" really annoying.

Other Thoughts: Even thought it feels nothing like a real Cherry MX board, I'd probably still keep it anyway. Fully-illuminated boards with real Cherry MX switches usually sell for double the price I paid for this, and, if I'd never felt real Cherry MX brown key switches, I'd probably think that the feel of this board is completely acceptable. It's certainly better than your average rubber-dome board. But the defective "H" key has got me thinking that I'll probably just return it and try to find something with real switches.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,
The Poseidon Z uses Thermaltake certified switches. Although they may not feel exactly the same as Cherry MX switches, they will have the same level of performance. The issue you are experiencing with your H key is a defect which can be repaired or replaced through warranty service. Please contact Customer Service who will provide RMA instructions. Additionally, Thermaltake has the Poseidon keyboard which utilizes the same design as the Poseidon Z with Cherry MX switches. The Poseidon Z, however, is backed by an unparallel 5 year warranty.

5 out of 5 eggsFull of win

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

Pros: Build quality, feel, style, windows key disable, size

Cons: none i can find

Other Thoughts: One of the best keyboards i have used. The blue backlight is a nice touch subtle but bright enough to be useful in a dark room without being annoyingly bright. The brown switch edition that i have has a great positive feel to the keys without the clicky noise that i find kind of annoying. the sice is just about right for me as this one take up less real estate then the TT challenger pro it is replacing. The windows key disable switch is a great feature too many times a simple slip has crashed a great gaming session into a wall but with a simple press of a button poof no more issues. and it is still there when i am not gaming should i need it. All in all a great keyboard my faithfull Challenger pro has been retired and this has become my go to gaming board. Tt Esports FTW

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing

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

Pros: Love it! It's already improved my gaming and typing, mat finish, world first 5 year warranty! Cherry lost the patent on the switches so now others are making them, supposedly just as good, only time will tell, if anything the 5 year warranty will cover me 2 to 3 years AFTER everyone else's warranty run out, plus this thing is so sturdy! metal plate on the bottom, you cannot bend or twist this thing, I got the Brown switch and its way better than blue, like you really want to hear all that clickydyclic! Gaming key is sweet too, it's happen to me you're in a crazy BF3 match and you hit the windows key by mistake, not anymore with this little gem! 4 settings on LED lights also, as well as off..

Cons: Maybe different LED light colors? i love the blue thought, have it on lowest setting and at night its way more than you need :)

1 out of 5 eggsDefective

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

Pros: looks cool

Cons: E KEY SWITCH DIDN'T WORK AFTER 24 HOURS
Had to retype EVERYTHING that uses the e key multiple times.

Other Thoughts: How can it be a gaming keyboard if it cant stand up to 4 hours of video gaming before having problems.
Waste of my money and time.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,
We apologize about the inconvenience the defective keyboard may have caused. The Poseidon Z is a great mechanical keyboard that should last any gamer years of use. We would be happy to replace the entire keyboard for you through warranty service. Please contact Customer Service who will provide you with RMA instructions.
