I’m not sure if you’re aware, but we’re currently in the midst of a revolution. An LED revolution—an RGB revolution. RGB case lighting and accessories have exploded into the PC market in the last few years, and the mechanical keyboard is no exception. A back-lit keyboard has been an attractive proposition for many (especially Gamers, for all those late night sessions) and the RGB option brings a whole new level of flash, pizzazz, and customization.
Thermaltake joins the party with their newly released Poseidon Z RGB mechanical gaming keyboard. Available in blue and brown switch options. The deck uses a Kailh switch with an offset RGB LED. For those unfamiliar with Kailh switches, they’re a Chinese-made switch whose color codes match up with CherryMX switches. The review keyboard has blue switches, characterized by their clicky tactile feel on depression.
Here are the Poseidon Z RGB’s tech specs, taken from Thermaltake’s product page.
Price-wise, I’ve found the keyboards listed from $90 to $120 depending on retailer and switch type.
