DOOM & OVERWATCH
Gaming has been awesome on the Hermes P1 RGB. We were able to remap keys to whatever we need them to do, there are dedicated Macro buttons to use on-the-fly, which has come in handy a couple of times. Profile switching in the game is great for something where the game has many classes of characters, and you can swap profiles to match your choice in the game. We can mess with the lighting, speed it up, slow it down, change patterns, swap from right-hand to left-hand usage, there is NKRO and anti-ghosting, so no matter what you want to do, the Hermes is ready for action. In this instance, every key press is followed with a slight click and the clunk of the keycap resetting.
Keep in mind, all of this is done without software too. The HERA software came in handy as we messed about with the timers and sounds. We made keys sent pew-pew laser sounds when they were pressed, and of course, we even had to try fart noises tied to the space bar for giggles too. What we liked most, is that when the timer ends, the screen presents the name of the timer, why you need a reminder, and you do not forget to feed the dog, pull out the pizza, or leave for something important while right in the middle of the action.
Windows and Productivity
Day to day, we find that the TTC switches feel a lot like Cherry MX and Kailh Blue switches, but for some reason, we can type much faster on the TTC Blue versions. We saw no indications of shorter throw like the MX Speed switches boast, but for whatever reason, when using the Hermes P1 RGB for typing, we are blazing through our work.
Macros come into play with our daily grind too, as we set a few for use with PhotoShop, a couple to turn on Pandora and to even use them to open folders we are always going back to. Since you can combine keyboard and mouse movements, and you can adjust the timing, you can open a program and set the Macro to keep going, as long as the commands are not faster than the PC will respond to them.
Even though this is apparently intended for gamers, the typist in us appreciates things like NKRO and anti-ghosting here, just as much as we found uses for remapping the keyboard profiles to make editing easier, as well as having all the options we need since the Macros are capable of such depth.
