Tt eSPORTS Poseidon Z RGB Mechanical Keyboard

With the Poseidon Z RGB set flat on the table, we find the key caps, as usual, lean away from users. We also see that this design uses a thick top section that almost entirely covers the sides, as just a bit of the lower frame is visible around the edge and works well to give a bit of a grip if needing to move it.

The main section of the Poseidon RGB is pretty standard. An easy to read font is used, we find the battle dragon on the space bar, and outside of that, it is a sea of black at the moment without any LEDs lit.

The multi-media keys start on the F1 key and require the Function key to be pressed to use these. There is rewind the track, play/pause, forward track, and stop offered on these four.

The next group of F-keys offers the other three media controls. F5 offers a mute button, and F6 and F7 offer volume down and volume up, respectively.

The last section of F-keys offers is an on-the-fly Macro Record button on F9. It then skips the F10 for dual function, and we are offered an LED dimmer on F11, and another to brighten the LEDs on F12.

The right third of the Poseidon Z RGB offers all of the typical command keys, arrows, and a full number pad that we would expect in a 140-key layout. Again, things are easy to read, and optional secondary commands are just as intuitive here.

The Insert, Home, Page Up, Delete, and End keys allow users to switch through the various profiles without the need to open software to do so, and without adding extra keys. Page Down offers us the option for NKRO support, and by default, the Poseidon Z RGB is always in 6-Key Roll Over mode.

At the very top of the keyboard, we find a sticker that sports the name and logo, but to the left offers white LEDs to denote the lock statuses, as well as noting if the Macro Record is active, if NKRO is enabled, and if you are using the Windows Lockout key. Speaking of that key, off to the right is the lockout key we mentioned.

With the feet now extended below the Poseidon Z RGB, we see the angle of the key caps is much more user-friendly.

The bottom of the keyboard is supported with five rubber feet to make sure it does not move around on you. Above the product sticker, we have run the wire through the track to the left. It can go straight out the center, or can be laid into the right track as well, to help manage the desktop wiring.

Inside of deep well with easy access to get a finger under them, the optional feet flip out to the back of the keyboard. We do appreciate that these feet are designed with rubber ends so that you do not lose grip by getting a better angle.

The cable comes 1.8 meters in length and uses a smooth black cover on it. There is a choke to eliminate noise on the way to the USB 2.0 connection at the end of the cable that plugs into the PC.
