Gamdias Hermes E1 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

The Hermes E1 is a mechanical keyboard that utilizes an exposed aluminum frame above a slightly smaller plastic lower section. Above the steel plate, we see clear switch bodies, and the keycaps are split into two groups of three rows, which the back-section angle forward, and the front section has the keycaps angled towards the back.

The eight-seven keys on the left side of the Hermes E1 cover everything we would expect to find. We also can see that many of the keys are to be used with the Function key, as to deliver dual-layered functionality.

The multimedia keys start on the F2 key, where we see the icon to go to the previous track of media. The F3 key offers the next track function, while the F4 button will swap functionality between the WASD and arrow keys.

F5 offers play and pause functions, F6 mutes the sound. F7 will allow you to reduce the volume, and F8 allows the ability to increase it.

The F9 keys are what you will use if you want to record Macro commands on-the-fly. Skipping over the F10 key, we then see that F11 is used as the Windows Lock key, where it will eliminate functionality form the Windows Flight key during use of this lock.

While you will have to use Hera software to configure these, numbers one through six are marked PF1 through PF6. These are the selectable profile keys so that once programmed you do not need to revisit the software anytime you wish to change the active profile.

In the specifications, there was a mention of two programmable buttons. While all of the keys can be addressed in software, when using the Macro on-the-fly recording, one of these two buttons can be chosen for use at that time.
