It may seem like I wasn't giving any attention to Thermaltake and its keyboards since I took on the role of peripherals editor here at TweakTown, but that really wasn't the case at all. The issue is more based on our review criteria. By that I mean that while the Challenger and original version of the MEKA keyboards were reviewed here by my predecessor, since then there has been little outside of the range of color combination changes, and other small additions not worthy of a full review.
While I missed out on the Challenger series of membrane switch keyboards that offered fans on them to keep your hands cool, as well as fancy lighting schemes, you all know how I feel about rubber dome keyboards, so maybe that was a good thing. I also missed out on the MEKA and G Unit series where Thermaltake stepped into various color options and offered mechanical switches. Now we are talking my language. Mechanical key switches, backlighting, no software needed to use it - all the things that pique my interest when looking for things to review. I try to keep my eye out on what consumers are looking for, and I think today might be the day you switch out your current keyboard.
In fact, by missing the previous released version, I know Thermaltake has had a fair amount of time to work on the design and layout, and is now delivering a more refined product. From what I can tell just in images on its website, as well as looking at various reviews, I have to say, for my personal tastes, it was well worth the wait to get a hold of this new Tt eSPORTS MEKA G1 Illuminated keyboard that sports Cherry MX black switches behind every key, as well as individually illuminated keys.
Even as far as the styling and the way the features work, it is just so simple to use and attractive - you are going to be impressed with Thermaltake's latest mechanical keyboard offering.
