At the top of the right side of the keyboard under the lock notification LEDs to the left, we find a flat section with the company name and logo on it. The large button that has rounded arrows on it is the Windows lockout button. When pressed, this keeps accidental key presses from landing you at the desktop in the middle of a heated battle.

Extending the feet under the back edge of the keyboard increases the angle of attack by roughly five degrees, and as you can see, it also makes the key caps more accessible as they lean just slightly forward now.

Our 1.8 meters of cable has a rubberised sleeve containing the wires, and not the braided cable mentioned in the list. We also see that the USB 2.0 connection is not gold plated, but in reality, that is not something that is mandatory, and if there are connection issues, the five-year warranty has you covered anyway.

The underside of the Poseidon Z has five small rubber feet to keep the keyboard in place while in use. The sticker in the middle does not cover any screws, and just three hold this keyboard together. There is, of course, the adjustable legs at the back edge.

What you may have missed in the last image is that this design offers three ways for the cable to route. It can go right out the middle, but the keyboard also has a channel in each direction to get the cable pointed to the PC on either side of you to help clean things up a bit.

Looking closely at the flip out feet, while we do prefer to have them flip out to the side so that they don't collapse on you, Thermaltake does make sure to rubber coat the ends of the feet to not lose any traction when they are in use.
