GAMDIAS Hermes GKB2010 Ultimate Mechanical Keyboard Cherry MX Blue Switches, Magnetic Wrist Rest, 13 Macro Keys, Red Color Backlit
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: -Looks nice
-LEDs are bright
-Macros in great spots for easy ergonomical access
-Fairly liquid resistant (oops)
-Easy macro setup
-If not good, then active updates of software
-Great detail. Even on the bottom

Cons: Hardware:
-Headphone, mic, and USB are in useless positions... I cant think of anywhere else you could put them, but dont imagine using them at all.
-Slip resistant pads on wrist rest fell off almost immediately
-unclear ....(mouse-shaped?) button to the left of Right ALT (still dont know what it does)
-Iffy manual, better than most. Includes colour, thick plastic paper, but still doesnt give great descriptions. And I would have preferred a .pdf or a dedicated section on the website to reduce waste.
-Annoying yellow logo. WHY IS IT SO YELLOW. IT STICKS OUT LIKE A SORE THUMB. AND YOU CANT TURN IT OFF.

Software:
Where to begin.... The software is the most awful thing I have used. It takes forever to start up. And you cant do anything else while it does because they leave a GAMDIAS logo overlayed on the first layer and it will cover anything. Many features are still missing (although there are frequent updates).
Macro creation is bulky and clunky. It needs to be simplified and then an extra option given to enable advanced mode.
Great Idea with adding the ability to play sounds through Windows audio input even through macros and such. (yet it doesnt work)
Great selection for many preset macros such as muting skype and answering skype calls (Dont work yet)
Flashiness is awful and hurts my eyes. Even makes it difficult to use.
Overall slowness and meh-ness

Other Thoughts: Most of GAMDIAS's/HERMES's customers are likely under 14 or younger and just getting into gaming thinking they need some flashy mechanical keyboard. The flashiness is the worst part. It seems that they have some really good manufacturing and engineers backing the production up, yet they completely ruin it with trying to appeal to young minded people. It's a shame how close they got to creating an amazing product, I suggest to anyone reading this to go buy a mechanical keyboard from Corsair or Logitech.
