Tt eSPORTS Poseidon Illuminated Mechanical Keyboard
Fresh out of the box, the Poseidon looks no different than most other 104 key mechanical keyboards. Thermaltake is taking their best jab at the market with something clean, simple and straight to the point of what this product is supposed to do - that is, typing and gaming, without the gross feel of cheap rubber dome switches.
The side has a slight curve to it as the keyboard gets slightly taller toward the back. There is a bit of a rolled corner to the frame, but the sides, front and the back all drop off immediately, keeping the dimensions as small as possible.
On the left two thirds of the keyboard there is the standard 74 key QWERTY layout. The legend on each of the keys that appears white now is actually the color of the plastic used when the key caps were made. After that, the black coating is applied for this look and rubberized feel.
As we look much closer at the individual key caps, there is a defined texture applied for an assured grip on the key caps. Each of the keys is also rounded to help center your finger tips on the individual keys.
The right third of the Poseidon offers all nine of the command keys at the left just above the arrow keys. You also get a full number pad to complete the 104 key layout of this mechanical keyboard.
Scanning back over the keys, more specifically the top row of the F-keys, I found the multimedia keys. These simply work with the use of the Function key to the right of the space bar, and whatever key you need to use for the media you chose to play.
On the F11 and F12 keys, you press Function and the F11 to dim the LED lights or turn them off entirely. On the flip side, you then need to use the Function and F12 buttons to turn the LEDs back on in four preset levels of intensity.
Above the number pad, there is a section with the battle dragon logo on it. To the left of the logo are the three lights for the various locks to show if they are engaged. To the right of the logo, you will find a button with arrows on it, this is the Windows bypass key that gets pressed to activate the lock.
