Gamdias took the time to make the back of the keyboard so attractive; we thought we should show it off too. We find many of the same angles found on the sides, and we can also tell that the exposed plate wraps around the back of the keyboard and is where the Zeus logo is located.

The cable which connects the keyboard to the PC is thick; it is covered with braided cloth and even has a ferrite choke in-line. To help contain the wire, there is a pair of Velcro straps with the Gamdias name on them, and the end of the cable terminates in a fitting with Zeus logo on it, and the gold-plated USB 2.0 connection.

Once the keyboard is flipped onto its face, it is easy to tell that the entire assembly is one piece. The wrist rest will not come off and is where two of the rubber feet are. The bulk of the frame is flat with styling added to it, is where the other pair of feet reside, with added bits on the back for more style.

The flip out feet is stable, easy to work and come with a rubber pad on the end of both of them. Extending the feet will raise the back of the keyboard nine millimeters.

Since a single screw is hidden and makes disassembly impossible, we are moving right on to the keycaps. We eventually moved to a wire keycap puller, as the one provided will scratch the keycaps. Once pulled we see that the larger keys have extra clips for the torsion bars, but the stems are Cherry MX style for all of them. Each cap is shot in the off-white plastic and then painted, leaving the legends exposed on top.

In our Hermes P2 RGB, we were sent the blue optical switches. They do look different than standard mechanical switches, with walls around the studs of each switch, and squared off LEDs exposed behind each switch. The torsion bars are exposed, each switch has a cursive D on it, and we can also see that Gamdias forgot to put a screw in this hole, as we took this image before trying to tear it apart.

To show off what the Hermes P2 RGB keyboard can do, we plugged it in and found it to default the LEDs to this wave mode. We can see the full spectrum of colors, moving to the right across the keys, and showing well under the bright lights. We also can see that the Lock LEDs are blue, no matter what the keyboard is doing.
