GAMDIAS Hermes P3 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review

DOOM & PUBG

 

In FPS titles, we have no complaints. The keyboard works as intended, and the shorter throw of the switches can mean the difference between dodging shots and taking one to the head. The low-profile nature of the caps made for smoother transitions between the keycaps and also added to an overall feeling of speed while using the Hermes P3.

 

 

All game types can take the same advantages as we saw in FPS titles, and the on-the-fly Macro programming can and will come in handy, even if limited to just two options up front. Media keys are nice while gaming to adjust the sound levels, but the Windows lock is a treat for gamers too. We also dig that Gamdias tends to the left-hand gamers out there too, enabling keys to be swapped with the press of a button, rather than having to go into software and remap them.

 

 

Windows and Productivity

 

As with gaming, when it came to typing on the Hermes P3 or writing reviews with it, we felt the increase in speed. Low-profile keyboards aren't just for looks when done right, and the switches used in this keyboard are not only clicky, but they have a very similar feel to other full-sized blue switches on the market. For us, it was a natural transition.

 

At first, we did find our finger to hurt a bit, as we were jamming the keys down due to muscle memory, expecting more travel. However, after much use, we found no vibrations, just solid short-throw switches which delivered a premium feel typing away on it day to day.
