Tt eSPORTS Poseidon Z Illuminated Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Brown Switches
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Really poor quality control.......... 09/05/2015

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

Pros: It's full of really nice features when it actually works.

It has a 5 year warranty! With me having received 4 bad keyboards in a row the warranty may be important for anyone that has bought this keyboard in the future.

Thermaltake paid the return shipping on all but the very first RMA.

They will e-mail a pre-paid UPS label after a second RMA is required.

Cons: I have had 3 of these brown switch keyboards and they have all been RMA'd for a replacement that failed right out of the box!

So that's a total of 4 bad Brown Switch versions of this keyboard. That have all been sent back under a RMA.

I bought this based on the good reviews but have had nothing but key stroke problems that forced me to send them back under warranty.

Other Thoughts: I thought I was getting a really cool mechanical keyboard that has a fantastic LED under each key.

I like the feel of the keystrokes and the look of the back lighting.

That said I have now sent back my 4th defective keyboard for a replacement. The first 3 were all horrible with non registering keys and double or triple registering keys!

Quality control has to be really, really horrible for me to get 4 bad keyboards all in a row.

These were not small issues, but frustrating problems when typing a simple e-mail or more importantly my pass words.

My only hope is that the 4th keyboard will be replaced with a new model that costs $120.

It's a brand new design from Thermaltake that's sold on there web page but I have not seen it here or on Ama**.

So all I have for this version is nothing but bad remarks.

As opposed to slamming this model I'll hope I get a good functioning brand new model and will review it when I see it's available for sale here.

Tt eSPORTS Poseidon Z Illuminated Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Brown Switches
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Great looking and potentially good keyboard with horrable quality control via customer service..................... 08/26/2015

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

Pros: I like the size, the weight, and the back lighting with a single Led under each key.

Has a Windows button that deactivates the key.

Has volume control and three light brightness settings.

A nice feel to the keys when gaming or typing.

The 5 year warranty is great and it's needed in a big way!

Cons: I have had 4 different replacements and they all had bad keys that made the keyboard impossible to use!!

I'm not a complainer and usually this would be considered a compliant and not a review. However, with 4 bad boards in a row this does become part of the review!

We will see how the brand new keyboard that costs $120 will work compared to this $95 keyboard??

I'm hoping I will be pleased.

Other Thoughts: I gave this a very poor rating based on the overall quality control of this keyboard.

Either I have had some horrific bad luck or the quality control is just horrible with this keyboard.

I have had 4 defective keyboards in a row.

Total cost was $95 + $17 to return it the first time=$112.00

Thermaltake has offered me a brand new keyboard called the Poseidon Z RGB that I have not even seen for sale yet other than on there website.

I'll have to wait and see if this brand new design makes a difference? Hopefully this last keyboard will change my view point on this Brown Switch mechanical keyboard.

I bought my keyboard from the other huge vender that has a 30 day return policy.

New Sapphire DUAL-X AMD Radeon R9 270X OC 2GB GDDR5 2DVI/HDMI/DisplayPort PCI-Express Video Card w/ Boost(SaveMart)
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Well built, vapor X really works well!
Price I paid was only $95 for a used card just back from a RMA.
I own 2 of these and they both work great alone or in Cross-Fire!
Only needs 2 - 6 pin power connections and a 500 watt P.S.U.
Cards have a duel BIOS button which is a nice add on.

I would rate these a solid 4 1/2 egg ratting if they had that option! I never give any hardware a 5 egg review as any component can be improved!

Cons: Current price point is a joke!
I paid only $95 for each of my 2 Sapphire 270X cards.

Fans can go bad but have not on mine.

Other Thoughts: If you have one of these cards and a fan begins to get loud simply clean the heat sink and the fans after removing the fans with a jewel sized screw driver.

I had a one card that sounded as though the fan had a bad bearing. After close inspection all it needed was a good heat sink and fan blade cleaning.

I smoke and this will harm any fans in a computer system. It actually harms everything in a computer system.
I try to limit the harm with a good cleaning every 3 to 6 months!

This cleaning takes a good 5 to 6 hours as every single fan blade needs to be cleaned thoroughly!

I love the vapor X tech as it really seems to work as advertised!

I would avoid the 3 fan cards and go for a good vapor X variety if you can find a used card for under $120!

I only paid $95 and $90 for two identical cards. These are usually used for mining and can be found at very good price points on *bay.

I used to only buy cards brand new and buying these two used only cost me $95! I sold my Asus 6950 for $90 which was the price of the second card I bought.

You may choose to use the Sapphire software to adjust the voltage, or re-flash the card to the correct voltage!

I had one that was flashed under the default voltage and it runs perfectly so I left it alone.

Normally, I would have flashed the cards BIOS back to the factory default voltage.

In cross-fire mode the cards work fine with the voltages being matched via AMDs CCC or the Sapphire supplied software.
Both will work to change the voltage back to the default.
