Over the past couple of years I have seen many a mechanical keyboard. While most companies tend to try to wow you with extra features like Marcos, Profiles, and even some come with color and illuminated keys. The latest sample to hit the desk sort of flips that whole idea of what makes a great keyboard up on its ear, and delivers a keyboard that is just that... a great mechanical keyboard.
I can already hear the kiddies complaining about the lack of some of the features that will eventually cost you in the realm of $100 to get something that fits that mold. That is the thing, while this new keyboard takes things back to the basics of what a mechanical keyboard is all about, Thermaltake and the Tt eSPORTS crew have done a wonderful job of delivering the best of what they do offer. You are getting an illuminated keyboard and brightness levels, and even the option to turn them off all together. Next to each individual LED there is a Cherry MX blue switch that offers a tactile feel with an audible click. They also include multimedia keys integrated into the F-Keys, 6 - 8 key NKRO support, and a Windows lock key to help you stay in the game.
With this new release you are about to see, there is also a little brother on the way to the market as well. While we are currently looking at the new Poseidon Illuminated keyboard that is releasing with an amazing price point, there will be a plain Poseidon that is even more affordable to the masses. This is the angle that the Tt eSPORTS crew is going with in this series of mechanical keyboards. The idea seems like it was to set a price point that is not only reasonable, but may even be a market killer for other higher prices solutions. Then once the pricing was set, it was like Thermaltake crammed everything they could into these keyboards and not lose money selling them.
With all of that to digest, I say we get right to the business at hand and see if you can do away with a couple of odd features that most mice can cover, and get to the meat and potatoes of what this Poseidon Illuminated mechanical keyboard is all about.
