Hermes P1 RGB Continued

The thirty keys on the right side of the Hermes P1 RGB are what we expect to see, but rather than using words on the commands; there are abbreviations with three letter max, used to explain the function. There are also many of the keys here with white paint on them too. There is the WASD on the arrows, the number pad has arrows on it, and the 8 and 2 keys are used to brighten or dim the LEDs when it is lit.

Without software, you can still use the preset modes of light display on the Hermes P1 RGB. The Insert button will put the lights in wave mode, the Home button will change the direction, and the Page Up keys will speed up the rate of motion. The Delete key puts the LEDs into rotation around the center, the End key switches to static LEDs or can turn them off, and the Page Down key will slow down the motion of the mode.

At the top right corner of the brushed aluminum top plate, we find the Hermes P1 RGB name and logo painted on in gold. Just below, there are three small holes with LEDs under them, to display the Number lock, the Caps lock, and the Gaming lock.

The feet under the Hermes P1 RGB are extended, and even so, the keycaps are not all leaning towards the user. While with your wrists on the table, this could be uncomfortable. Since the Hermes P1 RGB comes with a wrist rest, your hands will ride the keys at a different angle and is why the keys are positioned the way they are.

The bottom of the keyboard is flat, textured, and has a product sticker right in the middle of it. Five rubber pads keep this keyboard in place, and we also see a pair of drain holes near the front, just in case you are prone to spilling things on the keyboard.

The flip out feet add some height to the back of the Hermes P. RGB, and they do have rubber pads preset to keep the grip along the back edge. We can also see that next to this foot; the bottom frame is molded to allow the plastic keycap puller to clip in and out, with little chance of getting lost.

The cable is 1.8 meters in length, and to dress is up some, a braided cloth material is wrapped around it. Near where the connection is made, with the ZEUS logo on the outside, we see that the cable passes through a Ferrite choke, to eliminate noise and cross talk.
