Regarded today mechanical keyboard Tt eSports Poseidon Z RGB (KB-PZR-KLBRUS-01) just refers to simple gaming keyboard with the “mechanics”. There were no additional or different bells and whistles. Housing, keys, switches and beautiful lights – that’s the whole keyboard in four words.
The keyboard comes in a box of relatively small size, which is made in black and red colors inherent in all products Tt eSports.
There is a photo of the keyboard on the front side, the name of a large RGB logo, testifying exactly RGB-version (and then these versions in the lineup so that hell would break a leg), mention of the Blue-switches (not so simple) and 5 years warranty. And by this figure is simply impossible to pass. 5 year warranty. Not for every ‘Claudia’ as given. Usually 2-3 years.
On the back of a large photo keyboards again, but with some footnotes, explanations, as well as a couple of screenshots of the included software.
Inside Tt eSports Poseidon Z RGB wrapped in bubble wrap, which in addition to protecting the fiction and entertainment performs more =)
Set Spartan. Besides the keyboard, bubble film, disk with drivers and books with the terms of the guarantee, there’s nothing inside, and so wanted to sticker Series logo.
To us came to charts RGB-version. In fact, in Poseidon series includes as many as 6 different keyboards. And this is without regard to whether they can be also different switches (there Blue and Brown).
There are variations in the color and taste, as well as the wallet. Versions with multi-color backlit monochrome, reduced (no number pad on the right), wired and wireless, plastic and aluminum. In general, everyone will find something to their liking. Tt eSports Poseidon Z RGB – a top model range. This is true not least because it only from the RGB-backlit.
Once Speaking of lighting, and since Thermaltake her so much glory in placing a huge corresponding logo on the front panel of the box, leaving a little structure in the direction of look at it first.
I must say – cool lighting. That’s really cool. It accurately tried with all his strength. 16.8 million. Colors, different modes of operation (with it very funny), it is bright and even. Moreover, the corresponding software can click on each individual set buttons or more separate color.
Not to mention the Russian localization. Russian letters are located next to the English at the top of the key, and it is installed at the top of the diode. The same is true for the characters. So the lights here and there the uniform, not how it is that Russian is much worse than seen.
External keyboard … looks like a keyboard, and at first glance does not say that it costs $ 140 (but then the price is not so simple, and more on that later). Nevertheless, many are considered extremely game moments. Just like “F1” directly to “2”, long left “Shift”. Only here the “Enter”, according to the unwritten laws must be in two tiers, and here is one. And, of course, have accidentally pressed the lock key is “Win”.
There are no extra buttons, additional panels. Fully classical design with small dimensions 440h133 mm, and not too high – 37 mm. Made entirely of plastic keyboard. Fangled aluminum here. The plastic quality and a little rough. It is difficult to convey in the photo, but the touch is felt. In general, the whole structure is assembled adequately. No creaks even when “twisting”.
As already mentioned, such mechanical switches are used Blue, which, theoretically, “sharpened” by typing. In fact, all types of switches and a normal game, and fine prints. However, it is not very popular now Cherry MX Blue, and by Kaihl company. As she says Kaihl their Switches completely identical design to those of the Cherry, but made out of a few other materials.
By positioning is a complete analogue of Cherry MX, but they are a bit cheaper in the production, which reduces the cost of the final product. Feels Kaihl Blue pressed a little lighter than the MX Blue, and a little quieter. Tactile feedback is still good.
By reliability with them all in order. The official specifications indicated resource of MTBF of 50 million. Taps. Believe the man who did a lot of prints. 50 million keystrokes -. That’s a lot. And the guarantee of 5 years from the “incidents” insures.
On the reverse side also has a couple of interesting moments. Firstly, a large area of the leg. Secondly, these legs are arranged not only in the corners of the body, but there is one in the middle. It not only provides an additional grip on the table, but does not sag in the middle of the body. By the way, the keyboard sits on the table, “is dead.”
And finally, on the wire. It is a standard length of 1.2 m, without braiding, with the most common is not gold-plated plug, and the keyboard is not detachable. But there is a ferrite paste.
Overall style of the bundled software, which is simply called Tt eSports Poseidon Z RGB Gaming Software, very similar to the design of the software in a gaming mouse Tt eSports Level 10 M Advanced. Unification – is good. Owner «rodent» Tt eSports when purchasing the software keyboard will feel “at home”.
Although here and there are no additional buttons that can be assigned macros, but still it can be done. What has to absolutely any button. Want to “1” in the box on the right tsifirnom was, for example, “purchase” AK-47 + Armor + 2 grenades, and the number “2” the AWP + Armor + gun – no problem. Ability to implement a lot.
Another interesting section – lights. Each button or zone can be individually set the color, brightness, and choose the backlight mode for the entire keyboard. Moreover, these modes can be configured. To transfusion was faster or slower speed differences “waves” at the appropriate time, etc.
In fact, the whole point of this app in prescribing macros so deep backlight control. And what’s interesting. Although the official version for other operating systems do not, but all settings are stored in the memory of the keyboard. Configure once with “computer”, and then you can connect to the phone and all the files saved settings, and to another computer, and much more will be needed.
During those two days, the keyboard has visited with us a pleasant impression.
Like all modern luxury keyboard, Tt eSports Poseidon Z RGB is cool. Just cool. But it is one thing about which I have not mentioned previously. The price Tt eSports Poseidon Z RGB is $ 120
And given the price tag is justified and a small saving on the switches (although I would not call it directly economy, they are just a little bit more), and simple-wire, and “fat” set.
So Tt eSports Poseidon Z RGB (KB-PZR-KLBRUS-01) – an excellent choice for your money, with a great quality / price ratio.
