Thermaltake Tt eSPORTS MEKA G1 Illuminated Mechanical Keyboard Review

The MEKA G1 Illuminated comes is a box that is made to look like metal with the reinforced corners and diamond plate behind the naming and image of the keyboard. At the bottom it shows off features like the set 1000Hz polling rate, the backlighting, the two port USB hub, and the pass-through audio jacks.




Both of the smaller thin sides look like this above with the company and keyboard name, along with the battle dragon logo at the right. The longer thin sides show the company name, the phrase "solid to conquer", and the keyboard naming on top of more diamond plate.




The back of the box starts off showing what was on both of the longer sides, but as you move down, you can tell that similar text is being repeated in 15 languages, and things finish off with a Windows 7 certification icon and the model and serial number in the lower right corner.




Moving in much closer you can now tell it is a features list that is on the back of the box. Thermaltake cover the polling rate, the 50 million clicks of each Cherry MX black switch, the added USB and audio ports, the multimedia keys, and finishes off talking about the detachable palm-rest.




Upon first lifting the top of the box open, you will find that this keyboard comes with a cardboard insert that denotes all the keys with multiple functions, as well as showing the lighting modes and where to adjust the lighting. It also covers some features and the system requirements over to the right side.




If you lift the insert out, you will find the keyboard is placed in a foam bag and set into the box. The cabling is tucked in at the back, but the front section holds the palm-rest, and you can also see the folder with the paperwork inside it lying on the keyboard.
