Tt eSPORTS Poseidon Z RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review

With Software installed, the first window seen is what we have here now. You can select through the profiles to the right, across the top. You can open the Macro window, and even change the Lighting options. However, without pressing the Game Mode/Windows lockout key, the lower section and keyboard image cannot be used.





With the button now pressed, we selected a random key and clicked on it. As it flashed, we clicked on the T Key window and were delivered these options of control for each press. A single key allows for remapping; Default resets the key, and Launch Program will assign a key to boot the program, with the click of a key.




They also included an Instant Shift System with the Poseidon Z RGB. This allows you to set three of your favorite profiles, and rather than having to look at the keys to the right to find one of the five profile keys. You can simply select the profile you want to use and set it to switch to said profile with either the Shift, Control, or Alt key presses.




The Macro Key window is pretty standard. It reads commands made, along with the time between each command. Times can be manually adjusted if needed, or inserted all together where they were not originally. If you wish to make Macros, you start with the New button at the top right. If you already have a folder with them, use the Load button to find them and upload them to the memory onboard.




Lighting options are pretty intense, so much so that there is an online PDF file that you can get just to learn how to use this. At the top is the layout of the keyboard, and while we are in fully lighted mode currently, other modes allow single key or groups of key blocks to be set differently in layers. Along with the brightness slider, below we find that you can use the color pole and block to its left to select colors, or alternately punch in the RGB codes.


Effect control offers the standard fully lit mode, which can be customized, but also offers reactive, arrow flow, wave, and ripple modes. The amount of control, options, and layers of lighting that can be done on this board are some of the best we have seen to date.
