    Thermaltake KB-PIZ-KLBLUS-01 reviews

    POSEIDON Z Illuminated Keyboard - BLUE Switch Edition (Black) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from looks great hard to type I could care less about writing reviews, but buyer beware. I wanted a blue back lit mechanical keyboarrd, and this prodduct seemed to fit the bill. Well it looks good and has aa gooddd action, however, it caant type to save its life. Any typos you see here are a result of its inability to type staabilyy. Forrget it for typing in passwords reliaably. Perhaps it is good forr some kind of gameing...issues with duplicate letters aappearing when typing. I've turned ddown the repeat rate in the device contrrol panel in Windows to no avail... All in all, Im typing in the darrk riight now and it feels goodd, I sshudder to think hohw many repeat keys thherre are.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice Keyboard, but need light in room. First let me say that I am NOT a gamer. I bought this keyboard to replace mechanical keyboard that died. I use it primarily for typing text, graphics and video editing. I like the feel of the keys and hearing the clicking sound. The big problem for me, however, is that the LEDs only light up the TOP portion of the keys. This means that I have to remember where all of the Lower letter & symbol keys (!@#$%^&*()_+/.,;'\) are. I constantly forget, for example, what number the & key is under; have to turn on the overhead light bright in order to see. Compounding the problem for me is that the entire key is black and the lettering is a dull gray. The LEDs are really great (with adjustable intensity) as long as you only use those keys. The keyboard picture made it look like the entire key (letter/symbol) was illuminated, thus making it very easy to identify. Sadly, this is NOT the case. So, if you don't know what symbols are under the number keys or where the slash keys are, have lots of light in the room when you are using this keyboard. On the other hand, if you don't care about these letters & symbols then this is a 5-star keyboard.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Nice Keyboard! If you are looking for a very high quality keyboard with some extra bonus features like a really cool blue backlight then this is for you. This is s very solid keyboard with a very distinct Click which some might find annoying and could disturb others in the room espeically when someone is typing fast.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bang for your bucks If you're in the line of work that has to type a lot, get this one. Cherry MX Blue feels incredible on the finger and the sound is music to my ear. Plus, when you crank up your typing speed, it sounds like a hurricane. If you're into keyboard with armrest, get a gel armrest.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Budget Mechanical Keyboard If you are getting a bunch of double keys, then you obviously need to get more well-acquainted with the weight of the keys. I have never used a mechanical keyboard in my life, but it's been a half hour since this arrived at my doorstep and I'm typing like a pro. What do you expect if you don't give your muscle memory a chance to catch up with your hardware? The keys' secondary functions (!@#$%) are not as well-lit as the primary functions (12345) but what do you expect? If they were the same brightness it might get a little confusing. I can see them just fine and besides, not seeing them as well will help you remember where they are and you will eventually not even have to look. My only complaint is that the keys are pretty loud. If you are gonna be using this keyboard in a public place or where someone is sleeping, you shouldn't buy this keyboard. In fact, you shouldn't buy any mechanical keyboard! Softer keys are more expensive; that's why I am not particularly upset that this is the biggest issue with the keyboard. You get what you pay for, and for what I paid, I'm happy with what I got.
