Layout, Design and Features …
As shown in the picture, the keyboard is a full size keyboard, which, however, has a very narrow frame. This gives a modern look, which probably makes a good impression on the table of every gamer. The layout is a standard 104-key type, which is supplemented by an additional button to disable the Windows keys.
Also on the usual media buttons, Tt eSports relinquished at the Poseidon Z RGB. Through a double assignment of the function keys F1-F12, the main multimedia can be operated in combination with the FN key functions.
The display panel is located in the upper right corner. In addition to the typical Numlock and Capslock LEDs, you will be notified here about the status of the mentioned deactivated Windows keys, the N-key rollover and the profile selection.
These are blue Kailh switches that provide also a tactile and audible feedback when pressed. After just 2 mm, the switch trigger and can then push through another 2 mm. Approx. 50 grams are needed to press the Kailh button. At this point should be made clear, that many users find these buttons very loud. While this is evaluated by some users as pleasant. You get a clear feedback if the button pressed or not, and to be honestly … it feels just great to tap with Clicky switches.
Unfortunately some of the buttons, such as for example, the labels “?” or the “*” are not fully illuminated. However, this represents not a big problem for users since they intuitively reaches the position of these buttons already after a short time. The rest of the lighting is good.
Thus we have given an overview of the hardware. Let us now take a look at the software that is supplied appropriately not on CD but can be downloaded from the manufacturer’s website in the current version.
We have the opportunity to configure the five profiles, configure shortcuts and of course configure the keys on the keyboard. Under the item “Macro Key”, we can create keystroke sequences and save a previously defined key or keyboard shortcut to run later.
At this point, we would like to refer to our live demo video. In this video, we present different lighting modes, which would be logically just bad to show with a picture. By the way, you can also subscribe to our OCinside.de YouTube Channel, so you will be always informed about the latest videos.
All in all, the software has convinced us. No translation or software errors are found. Even the start of any software over the programmable button worked perfectly. Only one negative point is the long transfer time of 6 seconds on average until the desired setting has been saved and activated in the keyboard. Other manufacturers have solved this clearly faster and better that changes are immediately activated and visible.
We now come to our test in practice, in which the Poseidon Z RGB from Tt eSports can show, it is carved from what “wood”.
