Illumination & Usage
When you plug the keyboard in you will notice it will light up bright blue. This is the only color of illumination you will get. There are four different brightness level, which are easily changed by using the designated brightness up and down buttons on the keyboard. You can even turn the illumination completely off if you want.
All of the keys light up the same and the illumination is great for late night gaming sessions or when you are typing in low-light situations. Of course having the option for illumination is better than not having it.
I have been using this keyboard for a couple of weeks now and there are some definite differences between the key switches compared to other keyboards. I actually have a Tt eSPORTS Poseidon gaming keyboard with Cherry MX Brown switches. So I decided to compare them directly.
So this first thing that I really noticed was that the audible “click” of the keys on the Poseidon Z were much louder. I actually really liked this. This is one of the main reasons that people do choose mechanical keyboards in the first place. The switches themselves actually actuate earlier than the mechanical switches, which gives you better tactile feedback. If I were to have to choose between the Cherry MX brown switches and Tt eSPORTS certified blue switches I would choose the Tt eSPORTS ones for sure.
