Final Thoughts

 

 

What haven't we said about the X1 RGB already. It is jam-packed with features, can be remapped to do whatever you want, can accommodate Macros, it has LED profiles and the ability to be customized, there is software control to make life easier; honestly, the list goes on and on.

What we haven't covered, as we do not have an Apple product to run it on, is that fact that there is an app for this keyboard as well. So not only do you get everything we have been boasting about, with this app you hardly even need to go back to the software suite. You can program Macros through the app, you can change lighting, and what is coolest of it all, is that you can also talk to your phone with a proper sequence, and the keyboard will make the changes for you. While we do wish that this also applied to Android devices, it is still something that we have not seen, to this extent, before.

 

After some fiddling around, selecting different things, and resetting the keyboard via software, all of the buttons which did not function earlier do come to life. That is huge, as we were going to have to knock the X1 RGB down a peg had this not happened. Everything with the keyboard works, we have no complaints about that. The keyboard is solid, with the slightest ability to be flexed due to the plastic frame, but we do not notice vibrations when in use.

 

 

With the X1 RGB, it takes a bit of digging to see what all it has to offer, but once you wrap your head around what is going on, you are hard-pressed to find a keyboard as feature rich and as fundamentally sound as what Thermaltake is offering here. Considering that if you are willing to shop around, you can have the TT Premium X1 RGB right around $130, it takes very little effort to see how good this is. Anything we have seen with software control via a mobile device has been much closer to $200, and the reality is that at $130, it puts many standard RGB keyboards with fewer features to shame.

 

This is a product that will forever change our minds when it comes to bang for the buck, as Thermaltake has options to suit any users preference, it won't break the bank, and there is no chance of buyer's remorse when it comes to the X1 RGB. This mechanical gaming keyboard has everything somebody could ever want, and at its heart, is still a very functional product for gamers or those who want to type for hours.
